    Ok I got my Droid on 3/30 and love it but should I trade it in for the incredible since I am under the 30 days?

    if you still can then definitely do it, especially if you're like me and never use the keyboard

    yes.

    LOL...it depends. Do you want the physical keyboard or not? The incredible has many advantages (on paper) and some disadvantages (to some).
    No physical keyboard
    Much more plastic (either disadvantage or advantage depending on the camp)
    Sense UI (plus or minus...depends on the person
    Video out (huge for many)
    SnapDragon processor (arguably faster, but there are other things than just specs. Although over clocking to 1.8 or higher is something to look forward to)
    8gb of internal memory (no way this is not a plus)
    AMLOD screen (hmmmm. Most likely very nice inside but outdoors it will suck. That being said, I find the Droid pretty much unusable outdoors in the Texas sun)
    There are many more items to consider. I have watched every video on this phone and am one that will probably make the jump. I absolutely love my Droid and it is the best on the market IMHO. That being said, I just don't use the physical keyboard and am not worried about metal vs plastic. Besides...my Droid will stay in the family since my wife has my old BB Tour and absolutely hates it.

    Personally I think the Incredible will be a great phone, and yes, even better than the Droid. That is not any type of slam on the Droid at all. Just a newer phone with updated specs. You cannot go wrong with the Droid....believe me. If you don't want or need a physical board will be the main question.

    Thanks mjs31. I do not use the physical keyboard and I also find the droid heavy which is why I am considering the HTC. I'll see how I feel. I purchased through letstalk.com and they do not have the HTC yet anyway.

    Well once flash comes along and can start taking advantage of the Droid's GPU capabilities is gonna be huge plus for the droid.

    Really....anyone within the 30 days period would be crazy not to hold out and see what the Incredible has to offer. It is just common sense. That is if you don't want a physical keyboard..

    People will argue like nothing else to defend the Droid but that fact is, these same people will have a different phone a year or so down the road. Now it may be a Droid 2, but still. Go with what works for you. There is a new phone coming out all the time. Although I personally think the Droid is the best phone on the market as of this posting, I will probably be switching. As great as it is, I am an Android OS fan overall so will continue with that, not the make/model of the phone.

    You know I am in the same boat like others. I just read an awesome review buy phonearena.com (droid vs incredible). i was so close to buying the incredible at full price, then sell the droid, but after reading the review, I am keeping the droid ;)

    I was torn between the Incredible and the Droid but got the Droid instead because the VZW guy told me that if I got a phone that day (three days ago) that he would give me a deal and told me to name my price basically. I got my Droid for $99 after mail-in-rebate. So my question would be if I were to switch phones to the Incredible, would it cost me the advertised price of, what, $300 outright? Would I get my money back from the Droid in full since the 30 days is no where near being over?

    Yes they would just credit you what you paid for the droid and then you would buy the incredible for whatever the price is. I think $299 with $100 rebate.:icon_ banana:

    Why don't you just return the droid, try out the incredible for 29 days, and then decide which you like better and go with that? If you decide you like the droid just return the incredible and say you liked the droid bettter. That's what I would do.

    My wife and I were looking at the Incredible or the Droid. We watched many many videos of both of them, and did all the researching we could. I came from the Iphone, so the Incredible is alike in some ways...

    The main thing that made me get the Droid instead of the incred is the keyboard, and IMO I think it looks cooler myself..

    But hey check it out, then decide man, I bet either way you will be happy with either.

    Not sure if they'll let you do this. I traded my Versa out for a Droid and was told in no uncertain terms that I would not be allowed to trade back.

    Another thing to consider is rooting if youre into that. From what I've read on XDA HTC has patched the root exploit in 2.1. And considering how hard it was to get Eris root access I'd put money on HTC doing a good job of locking it down.

    Again, that's only if you're into rooting or want to be. Not trying to dissuade you or anythingas im getting one myself but thats another point to consider.

    If you're smart you would. Unless you really need a physical keyboard.......
