HTC DROID Incredible 4G LTE Unboxing

Verizon and HTC finally announced the DROID Incredible 4G LTE this morning, stating it will be available nationwide on July 5th. Shortly after our review unit arrived and we've quickly unboxed it and took it through a few paces for you all to enjoy. This isn't our first hands-on with the Incredible, but is worth a quick look.

Below we have several pictures as well as a short unboxing and initial hands-on with the retail unit. We say retail because we've handled the phone more than a few times in the past. It was first shown off at CTIA 2012 in New Orleans, but this is the full retail unit that will be available to all come Thursday. So far we are enjoying the overall package. It's a bit small from what we are used to as of late, but should be very pocketable.

Verizon didn't get an HTC "One" branded phone like the One S for T-Mobile or the One X for AT&T, but this is as close as you'll be getting for a while from the folks at big red. The DROID Incredible 4G LTE is everything we expected it to be. Which is a great high-end phone in a slightly smaller mid-range 4.0-inch package. It still manages to come with top notch specs including the same 1.2 GHz dual-core Qualcomm S4 processor as the One S, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage and that impressive 8 megapixel camera on the back. The D-INC rocks Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and Sense 4 just like the other recent HTC phones, and performance was swift and steadily improved over Sense 3.6 we've seen in the past.

We've had our hands on this more than a few times, and now know it will be available come Thursday, July 5th. If there is anything you'd like to see or know about the HTC DROID Incredible 4G LTE for when we post our full review drop us a comment or two below. Otherwise go pick this up for $149 (after $50 MIR) later this week.

    Does it have HTC Imagesense on board?

    • http://www.androidcommunity.com Cory Gunther

      No Imagesense with the Inc.. that is also why the burst mode is missing on the camera as I show in the video near end. Good question.
