Verizon users who felt a little left out after HTC launched a One Series on every carrier except their own can now rest easy. The HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE may go by a different name than its siblings, but everything under the hood says it’s as powerful and feature-packed.
As with the HTC One™ S, One X (AT&T), and EVO™ 4G LTE, the part responsible for generating all this buzz around the Droid Incredible is the Snapdragon™ S4 processor. In terms of design, the Droid Incredible 4G is very similar to the HTC One S on T-Mobile. It’s got a 4-inch screen with a qHD resolution (540-by-960), an 8 Megapixel rear-facing camera, and Beats Audio™ for a complete multimedia experience.
In addition to its 8GB of internal storage, the Droid Incredible 4G LTE has a built in MicroSD slot that can add an additional 32GB worth of storage, a feature that makes it stand out from the One pack. LTE integration is yet another desirable feature that many Verizon users have been anxiously waiting for. What makes the Snapdragon S4 special is that the LTE modem is integrated into the same chip as the other core components (CPU, GPU, etc). Fewer chips in your phone mean better power efficiency and longer battery life. If the current HTC One X and One S are any indication, the HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE will easily go the distance with its battery.
Performance expectations will also be high given what the HTC One phones have done from a benchmarking standpoint. You should expect no less from the Droid Incredible 4G, as it’s bound to handle any task with ease.
The HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE is currently available at Verizon stores and online and will cost $149.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate with a two-year contract and data plan.
