    My girlfriend is deciding between the incredible or the fascinate. Which one do you guys prefer?

    I know im asking for taste and brig very vague. Just a random question.

    tapping and talking on the go.

    Have her visit a VZW store and test drive both. One will make an impression.

    We were at a vw store and she is trying to get a blackberry. Im trying to convert her to the droid world. Im making her choose blackberry or me and the droid. Hahaha

    I think she is leaning towards the incredible but I always liked the facinate. Im gonna take her to a real VW store tomorrow to try them both. The store we went to was a 3rd party store and didn't have displays and they didn't know anything.

    tapping and talking on the go.

    my bro has the fascinate and my friend has an incredible...
    i go with fascinate bc it has the 'hummingbird' processor which it is suppose to make lag-free on apps...also it has an led screen which is nicer...the only thing i like from the incredible is HTC's widgets...which u can get the fascinate and buy it off the market...but all we know is that both r better than mine

    When choosing my upgrade I went with the Incredible. It felt better in my hands and I like HTC Sense compared to whatever Samsung has. I don't like the Samsung UI so that's what helped me decide for the Incredible.

    Plus I'd be the only person I know who has an Incredible so I wanted to be original :)

    One of thew things I don't like about the Fascinate is the lack of LEDs, I like having different LED notification colors for different applications. Also, my son has a Fascinate and his GPS really sucks, I don't know if this is typical or just his phone.

    ^^^ that is the thing that bothers me most about this phone. I love the phone overall, but not having the led notification light really irritates me especially when I am at work

    I didn't realize the fasc. doesn't have led notifications. I agree, that's one of my favorite things. I have different colors set for text and email so I can see what I have waiting without turning on my screen.

    Make sure she doesn't want real buttons, if she has fake nails she will hate touch screen texting. My Fiance went from a BB Bold to a BB Storm2 and now is selling the Storm because of her hate of the touch only screen with her nails. Going to go with the Pro now.
