HTC Incredible Review

Updated on September 12, 2010

The HTC Incredible is one of the many smartphones available on the market, establishing itself as one of the best and most innovative through the many features and capabilities it has.  This phone runs on Verizon and can be purchased for around 200 dollars with the activation of a new 2 year plan.  When it comes time to make the important decision about your next phone, you should consider the Incredible for its many great features.

Processor: The HTC Incredible comes with a 1GHZ Snapdragon processor, perfect for surfing the web and downloading applications. This phone provides great speed, a factor that should be considered when shopping for smartphones. Android phones tend to run faster than most other smartphones, but the speeds vary from phone to phone. The Incredible will provide you with fast access to YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, and all of your other favorite websites.

Bluetooth and WiFi: If you own a Bluetooth, or are planning to purchase one with your new phone, you will be happy to know that it will be fully operational on the HTC Incredible. The HTC also has the option to use WiFi. This is very handy when you can not gain network connection and aids network speed. WiFi connectivity is very easy to obtain insuring that you have more access to the internet and in more places.

Memory: The HTC Incredible comes with an 8GB internal memory. This may not seem like a lot, but there is always the option of SD cards if you need extra space. These cards are fairly reasonably priced, but if you feel like you must have more internal memory this phone is not for you. The 8GB is plenty of space to load your favorite songs as well as the store the applications and games that you want to have.

Camera: This phone has an 8 megapixal camera with auto focus and video capture. You will not have a problem taking high quality photos and video.  The Incredible also has the flash option, perfect for taking photos at night.  Whatever pictures you may need, the Incredible will be able to take them in high quality insuring that you get great quality photos every time.

GPS: The HTC Incredible has a GPS feature available at around 10 dollars a month. This feature is great for finding your way around an unfamiliar city, but is not required with your plan if you feel like you do not need it.  

Advanced Speech Recognition: The Incredible really excels in speech recognition technology, and allows you to navigate through your phone, as well as text with speech recognition. This is perfect for those of you who have a tough time trying to text. The speech recognition is very responsive, sensitive, and very easy to use. It's not a vital feature, but it is a nice one to have.

Touch Screen: When it comes time to choose your next smartphone it is very important that you consider exactly what type of touch screen you are looking for and how you would like that touchscreen to operate. The Incredible's touch screen is heat sensitive, which basically means you will have you use the heat in your fingers to operate it. I found this touchscreen to be quite responsive, and I have not had any problems texting or navigating through my phone. Some people are less partial to heat sensitive touch screens, and this is something to consider when choosing your new phone.

Battery Life:  Battery life is an important factor in operating your phone, and The Incredible's is somewhat average when it comes to smartphones.  The battery life ranges from 2-3 days depending on how actively you use it.  There are applications to help you save your battery life, like Juice Defender, but due to the expansive capabilities of these phones the battery tends to drain rather quickly.  

With so many options out there for new smartphones, it is important that you take your time and consider your needs and options before you decide.  The HTC incredible is a great phone that provides you with many cool and innovative features.  I would definitely recommend this phone to anyone considering to buy a new smartphone.
