    Anybody else notice how much better of a music player the incredible is over the moto Droid?


    My moto Droid would constantly have hiccups in the audio playback, and I have not yet after almost a week with the incredible heard even one minor hiccup in audio playback.


    I don't know if it was a bug on the Droid or just a side effect of being a slower clock speed, or lack of RAM, but it is definitely not a problem on my incredible.


    Anybody else who came from a Droid notice this?

    You already answered your own question. :) I think it's a combination of better processor, more memory & the sense UI's music player (if it is in fact sense's) Either way it's much smoother and simply... well better. imo :)

    The processor on the Droid is enough to play some serious video. That's not the issue.

    There is more than enough memory on the Droid to run some serious video. That's not the issue.

    I haven't seen the Incredible's music player but Moto seems to include nothing extra other than the stock crap. Not sure why the Market doesn't produce a decent player that can also handle remote functions. Perhaps this speaks to continued immaturityof the Android OS... unless the Incredible's player is much better.

    guys, i'm not talking about just the Sense music player. i am talking about music playback in general. on the droid no matter what music app i was using whether it be stock, btunes, rhapsody, pandora, slacker, droidlive, they all had the same and very common hiccup in the audio.

    no matter what music app i use on the incredible there is zero and i mean ZERO hiccups in the audio playback. i have no heard one yet.

    i am leaning towards thinking it was some kind of bug in the droids software that they just couldn't figure out. my droid did it stock, it did it overclocked, it did it with other apps running and with no other apps running. i think it was just a bug that the incredible doesn't have and i just figured i'd point it out.

    the thing with the droid, and maybe you can compare on the DI, even when you don't launch any apps, android still fills your ram up, i always have only ~10mb free. as good as android is at managing the memory, it still occasionally falls behind i think. just like how recording videos gives you the same hiccups.

    i have yet to see less than 100MB free on my Incredible. i am not running a task killer or anything like that either. i just occasionally check on my free memory with an app called Quick System Info and will very rarely kill something off with it. on my rooted Droid i had Auto Memory Manager set to keep 40+ MB free at all times, which usually ended up keeping around 50-60MB free.
