Nice specs... 6 months ago :-/
Holding out for quad core.

jonyah says:

agreed. sounds similar to my EVO 3d, without the 3d, with lte and well, that's about it.

slackerjack says:

Umm...in case you missed it, that's an S4 - so Verizon basically just got an HTC OneX

:)

Quad Core/Dual Core = Marketing, if you don't believe me - go look at performance numbers, the S4 is a pretty sick little SOC

gattzzz says:

It's pretty much the One S from T-Mobile. Just a 4" screen instead of the 4.3".

npco543 says:

Not sure it's even a One S, or a One variant at all. So much is different from the One series - smaller screen, slower CPU (1.2 vs 1.5), no uni-body construction, removable battery and SD card, etc. To me, it's an upgrade to the Incredible line more than it is a variant of anything the One line.

Not that I'm complaining, I think it's a really great mid-level phone, and that's probably a smart thing for Verizon to have. Not everyone wants or needs the bleeding edge of quad cores and gargantuan screen sizes.

Not EVERY single new phone needs to be better than all that have come before. So the incredible line has dropped down to a mid-level phone, no harm in that.

Tstone88 says:

The only similarity between the two phones is sense 4. The one x has a faster processor, larger display, and excels in quite a number of other categories. So i would stop trying to make your self feel better.

neoenigma says:

For a second, I though this would be Verizon's One X\One S equivalent. It's totally not. If I were on Verizon, I'd feel pretty let down. This phone isn't consistent with HTC's 2012 line-up\strategy at all. Why would they want to put out this phone? Is the Incredible brand name worth it?

knightsray says:

Tell me what's wrong with it? It's basically the HTC One S with a slightly smaller screen. Except it has a micro sd card slot and removable battery. That sounds good to me.

neoenigma says:

Screen - Not Super Amoled (One S), Not Super LCD2 (One X). Likely inferior to both.

Processor is slower than the One S (1.2 Ghz as opposed to 1.5 Ghz).

Basically... if you are on Verizon and wanted a One X, tough shit for you.

wonkman says:

Not to mention they did nothing to the styling. Boring 2009 look.

crome1115#IM says:

i think what people fail to realize here is that verizon's main line of android devices revolve around the Motorola Droid series of phones.. basically they are in bed with motorola and since neither of the other 3 carriers get the "Droid" line of phones, HTC gets to push their high end devices on the other carriers while verizon waits on moto's next big device to compete with the quad core devices (which by the way are not going to see the light of day here in the states yet as evidenced by the dual core htc one x)so verizon will carry good htc phones just not their top tiered devices. that is reserved for at&t and sprint judging by htc one x and evo 4g lte. And the incredible line also falls along the lines of the "droid" series so its not really supposed to be in line with other carriers devices.

whitecomet says:

its like a baby rezound
The processor is fine I get it but need to be 1.4-1.5 ghz
a 4.3" screen or bigger -4.8
2000+mah battery if moto can do 3000+ on a non obese phone than 2k is possible on a obese phone.

Still another phone I will pass on an still hold onto my nexus. The phones this year so far do not impress I hope this fall a real leap will come in the next nexus.

4.3 inch screen with better white or bigger
2gb ram
jelly bean os
ti omap 5 or even tegra wayne
2000+mah battery

A real upgrade from what I have where it can do more better.

major payne says:

What I'm curious to know is with ICS I know multi processor support was brought forward but is that only dual core or were the quad cores also included. Then if that is the case no one has proven yet that the Quad cores have a strong benefit yet. Do the apps need to be written to allow quad core support? If so when will that happen.

Allows this is the HTC V it seems..

timber says:

Have you read anything about this phone and processor? This dual core outperforms just about every quad core out now, and uses less battery. Not really much use case for a quad core on a phone. I'm sure that will change in the future, but this is plenty of processor for now.

technomom says:

Price is going to be everything on this one. Make it $99 and I'll buy it today. Make it $149 and I have to think about it vs. the Galaxy Nexus. Make it any more than $149 and I'm not buying.

In fact, if Verizon makes this $99-$149, they could steal alot of business from AT&T and the One X, especially if they allow the bootloader to be cracked open.

deercreek says:

I actually may be interested in this. I don't want a phone without a microSD slot and removable battery. I don't want a phone that doesn't have ICS. The only thing I'm on the fence about is the 4" screen. I've got a Droid X with a 4.3" screen, and I've had a hard time adjusting to soft keys with the ICS roms I've tried. It's too bad this won't be out tomorrow. My wife is upgrade eligible tomorrow, and ready to ditch her BlackBerry.

KoukiFC3S says:

I wonder how the LCD screen compares to the SAMOLED on the One S.

wonkman says:

It better be a lot nicer because the One X blows it away.

Saneless says:

This is a good sign. I'm happy to see a 4" phone with real specs. Because if I can't stand the 4.7" phones of this year, and the likely 5" monsters next year, it's good to see the "Low" end is still awesome.

Everyone complaining about clock speed here doesn't know a thing about CPU architecture. The 1.2ghz here will destroy the 1.5ghz of the Rezound and use less power to do it. Stuff like "The processor is fine I get it but need to be 1.4-1.5 ghz" doesn't make any sense. Why, are you uncomfortable that a processor is only 85% better than the Rezound or Nexus instead of 90%?

Also, everyone seems to forget that actual women buy phones too. I haven't met one that cares for anything over 4" screens, so this will be right up their alley. A good friend of mine wasn't going to bother upgrading her original incredible because the Rezound was too big and everything else is just too much.

I think 4.3 tops out as the best screen size, but 4" is nice too.

richardpandy says:

I to think this is a good sign. Although the specs aren't the best, I am happy to see a 4" screen phone out on the market. Have the nexus now and I would like to go down in size and been hoping for a killer 4" screen phone but sadly these specs are not what I was hoping for. Maybe next time.

hkklife says:

Any idea how much internal storage it has? I would hope for 8Gb at the absolute minimum but 16Gb would be awesome. I seem to recall having read elsewhere before this thing was officially announced it it would have 8 gigs, so at least I haven't heard breast in that department. Altogether, a very nice little device for a $150 launch and certainly to look even better once the inevitable discounting begins to bring it down to <$100 prices.

I am still waiting for a VZW phone with ICS out of the box, expandable storage, removable battery, and a 4.6" or larger 720p screen.

kidjbg says:

Love how everyone is so worried about jelly bean and quad core, 2gb ram, etc........ For 99% of smartphone users, dual core is WAY more than enough. Sure, I wouldn't mind seeing a nice quad come out (other then One X), but when we get into those specs, we see high prices on devices. I would much rather have a nice laptop at the same price (or cheaper) than a 4.5" screen phone. Just a thought (......the other 1%.....lol)

So basically its what I expected all along ... A rebranded One V ... Pass ...

Saneless says:

You mean One S.

In order to be a V it would have to:

- Drop a CPU core and
- Lower it by 200mhz
- Lose half its RAM
- Lose half its storage space
- Lose 25% of its resolution
- Lose 38% of its camera picture resolution
- Completely remove its front-facing camera
- Lose LTE

And probably others. I'm pretty sure you meant the One S, which is a great phone

neoenigma says:

What display is this? It just says Super LCD. The One X has Super LCD2, and the One S has Super Amoled. It also has a slower clock speed than the One S... not that it should matter TOO much. It's a beefed up One V or a downgraded One S.

Let's just say it's a strange amalgam of the One phones.

phlyphish says:

I don't understand all the critical comments, especially in comparison to the Rezound. So get the damn Rezound if you like it better! How can having one more choice be a bad thing. Ignore it if you don't like it.

Personally, I'm thrilled with this new Inc. Love the fact that they kept the smaller screen! That's the biggest (see how I turned that) selling feature of the phone for me.

Believe it or not, some of us don't want the larger screens. We're not criticizing you for what you "like", we just don't understand why you think everyone wants the same thing you do.

This will be a great phone, just like my other two Incredibles. I've been waiting for a better option for two years now and only the incredibles have provided motivation for me to upgrade. The smaller form factor being the major consideration. But even so, there's plenty of "specs" to make it worth the upgrade.

speedtrap63 says:

Amen, brother! I agree with you 100%. The 4" screen got my attention and the rest of the specs are just gravy! Finally, something that might be able to replace my Dinc!

chrisz5z says:

This is a better option than At&t's One X. It will be faster due to the lower resolution. 300mhz isn't much of a drop, especially if you lower the resolution.....if it really bothers you just overclock it...its prob just a underclocked variant of the S4 anyway so it'll prob be stable.

zoggybottom says:

Like many who posted, I like the 4" screen size. I still have my OG Incredible and like that it fits in my pocket. Mostly, I wish it had a MUCH bigger battery. I cannot stand having to recharge my phone during the day when I travel and have heavy usage.

ddaydev says:

I don't get the big fight about quad vs dual core, tegra 2 still does everything i could want it to do and smooth, is there another dimension of smoothness i am missing?

oh cool now verizon has the one s. lol only this one has 4G LTE

troyboytn says:

less than incredible, just like Verizon and it's pricing plans....
