The HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE smartphone hit the Verizon 4G LTE network on July 5, and that is the same 4G LTE system that an independent wireless systems review of the four major US carriers performed by RootMetrics declared Verizon the champion. RootMetrics pointed out that Verizon posted the fastest up and download speeds of any of the four major US carriers, as well as delivering the most reliable LTE network. The Droid Incredible 4G LTE handset offers Near Field Communications (NFC) access out-of-the-box, as well as delivering Android’s Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) 4.0 operating system and the full range Beats Audio sound package.

The HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE Android smartphone retails starting at $99 with a standard new two-year activation and data plan, and the HTC Sense v4.0 UI Android overlay is present. The 4.0 inch Super LCD capacitive touchscreen renders visuals in more than 16 million colors and at a pixel density of 275 pixels per inch. That gives that screen an overall display resolution of 540 x 960 pixels, and a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass offers scratch resistance and glare reduction.
The 1,700 mA battery on board the handset delivers an above average 9.57 hours of talk time from a single charge, and standby time runs 18.6 days. The hardware package on board the new Droid Incredible 4G LTE includes a Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon microchip suite, with a dual core 1.2 GHz Krait central processor at its core. Also present in that chip set is an Adreno 225 GPU, and 1.0 GB of RAM system memory is also on board. The handset includes 8 GB of built-in storage and a microSD slot for storage expansion. MicroSDHC cards are also supported up to 32 GB.
The 8.0 megapixel camcorder on the back of the handset offers instant image capture, automatic image correction and a special effects package. And the 28 mm wide-angle lens allows you to fit more into your snapshots and video. That camera contains a group shot feature which allows you to snap five pictures, and then composites the best faces from those pictures into one great portrait.
Face and smile detection are also offered, HDR actually takes photos with different exposures and then blends them so you get the perfect picture, and the Backside Illuminated Sensor (BSI) allows excellent low light operation. Video recording is delivered at 1,080P HD, and snapshots can be taken while simultaneously recording video. The front facing VGA quality chat cam also provides video call support, and the multimedia package on board includes the above-mentioned Beats Audio system and a preloaded YouTube video player.
