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.

Dragonblade says:

So... the Rezound and the Incredible got it on, and this is what came out...

ithinkimjoe says:

$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.

MNadMan says:

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!

savedr says:

And no Bluetooth game controllers, ever. #nothx

300 bucks is a joke. Glad I'm on AT&T for once!

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.

patfactorx says:

Why get this over the RAZR lol

Seems like a downgrade

Theot says:

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

wrich73 says:

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.

El Jefe says:

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

A 4" screen is perfect, IMO.

That is one mediocre $300 phone.

Gaston says:

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.

Firespyer says:

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.

I'd get a used Rezound on eBay before I would buy this.

dragonsamus says:

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

mr nruz says:

some idiots will buy it just cuz its a "droid"

npco543 says:

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.

gatorboi352 says:

100% agreed on all fronts.

Love my DINC2!

wonkman says:

Hahahahahaha! Wait, what? This isn't a joke?

svenEDGE says:

This is disappointing in so many ways.

Jude526 says:

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

Theot says:

Agreed, pricing on phones is a ripoff anyway.

Theot says:

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.

318sugarhill says:

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.

richardpandy says:

299? HAHAHAHA. What a joke that is!

carraser891 says:

300 bucks lmao wow Verizon loves to bone their customers huh...

Masheen says:

1700 mAh lol

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

Keldog says:

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...

npco543 says:

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.

evobb100 says:

$299 on contract wawwww VZW need eye glass how market is going on

npco543 says:

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.
