Verizon Droid Incredible 4G LTE specs

Please, please, PLEASE tell me that $299 on contract is a misprint! That is waaaayyy too much for this phone, even if it is a LTE device.

$300 for a phone with a 4" display is a tad ridiculous. esp given the rezound is out and the galaxy nexus is out. and the fact that verizon is now charging a $30 'upgrade' fee.

yawn. that's a $100 phone at best.

One X? (& is only $149 AT&T Radio Shack pre-order)
SIII?
Note?

Give me something awesome!

I was waiting for this phone, but I jumped the gun on the Rezound at Easter when it was only $50. I gotta tell you I'm MORE than happy I chose the Rezound and didn't wait. Rezound has a better processor, maybe not the same camera but still Awesome, a better front camera, Lacking sense 4.0 but has 3.5, and will get ICS as where the Dinc 4g will ship with it. Rezound has a bigger screen with HD so I'm not seeing how this phone is better. Equal maybe, but certainly not better.

Maybe if it comes unlocked or gains root and s-off rather quickly that might be a bonus, but for the average user, I don't see how this is worth paying more over the Rezound for.

Because it at last won't be crippled by Motorola's horrible software. However that would be the only reason.

Moot point now, takes less than 45 minutes to have ICS (rooted or unrooted) running on the RAZR. The Motorola ICS "leak" lets you freeze bloat directly under your app settings and runs amazingly well.
Specs are cool and all on phones, but I really don't see how anything can top the Razr Maxx running ICS if you care anything about battery life.

Because I think the RAZR feels uncomfortable in the hand. It's too thin, too wide, & too flat.

A 4" screen is perfect, IMO.

How long will it take for manufacturer's to stop using their huge inventory of front facing VGA cameras? Come on! It's got to be pennies on the dollar to upgrade.

1700 mAh battery... So NOTHING was learned from the Thunderbolt?
I was looking at this phone for my wife but no freakin way Trying to pull 330$ for this phone is a joke.

The first incredible was a top of the line phone. This phone is mid at best. Is that what the incredible has become?

I'll buy it, so long as I can get it for $50 to $100. I don't want larger than a 4 inch screen, and I would prefer removable battery and storage, which this has and other "flagship" phones don't. My Incredible 2 has served me well, and this seems like a decent upgrade... again, for a reasonable price, which $300 is certainly not, not for what is essentially a solid mid-level phone.

As I've suspected, those desiring a 4 inch screen will have to drop down to mid/upper-mid level phones. Which is fine, I work all day on an 8 core workstation, so a "powerful" phone to me is an oxymoron. A 4 inch screen, 1ghz smartphone does everything I need a smartphone to do. Anything more starts detracting from it's usefulness in one way or another, be it having shorter battery life, being too big to hold/carry/use with one hand, etc.

I am happy with my Thunderbolt. This is a letdown. And with an upgrade fee of 30.00 tacked on I wont upgrade next year. Pricing on phones with the upgrade fee is a ripoff

I'll just get a rezound when my upgrade comes up in October and they've discounted it heavily for Verizon's next big mediocre phone.

The Rezound is a truly Awesome device, I'm sure the Dinc 4G will be nice, but not worth $300 when you can get the rezound much cheaper.

This is why every time I even consider switching to Verizon, I always end up deciding to stay with Sprint. Verizon is gonna charge $299 for a phone with last year's specs? Really? Why do they continue to rape their customers like this? I suppose "rape" is the wrong word, since its consensual. People are still gonna drop 300 bucks on a phone when they can go to AT&T and get a phone (HTC One X) with better resolution (HD), twice the storage (16 Gb), thinner, bigger screen, and a faster processor for 100 bucks CHEAPER!? Even on Sprint, you get a phone (Evo 4G LTE) with all the features as the One X (including thinness), PLUS a microSD card slot, a kick stand, dedicated camera/shutter button, and a bigger battery for the same price as the One X --- 100 bucks cheaper than what Verizon is asking for!

I remember when the Incredible use to be an Android Super Power among Smart phones, just below the Evo. Now its just a passible mid range phone with a price tag more expensive than a flag ship device on other networks. I expect this knd f crap when it comes to the iPhone (another overpriced piece of crap). But this is just ridiculous

I honestly thought this phone might pull me away from my DInc, but I guess it just hasn't impressed me enough. The wait continues...

Everyone should hold off on comments about the price. The page was taken down, and the buy link led to a page for the Razor (I think). Clearly, the page wasn't meant for public viewing, so it's likely it didn't contain 100% accurate information.

Let's wait and see what the price really ends up being. If does end up at $300 then, yea, they're insane. But it's honestly hard to believe they think they can actually get that much for this phone, as it's outclassed by several phones for equal or lower prices right now.

Dude, the page was incomplete, linked the buy button to the wrong phone (a phone that IS priced at $299), and was yanked within minutes of being discovered. You guys REALLY need to stop carrying on about the price... it almost certainly wasn't accurate.
