First Look: HTC Droid Incredible 2

2:34 /

Though the lack of some features is disappointing, the HTC Droid Incredible 2 is a solid choice for Verizon customers looking for a world phone.

Hey, everyone, I'm Bonnie Cha, senior editor at cnet.com and I'm here to give a you a first look at the HTC Droid Incredible 2. This is a long waited followup to the Droid Incredible, which is one of our favorite platform from last year. It's available now from Verizon wireless and it brings some improvement over the original model, but it's not quite a giant leap forward that some people might be looking for. Design-wise, the Droid incredible is now under longer and thinner than its predecessor and indefinitely like the curve shape, but it's like to have the red interior and access because the phone looks pretty plain now when it's standby mode or turned off. You still get the topographic design on back though, which is different and differently could be good or bad depending your taste, but personally I don't mind it. [unk] gets a little more interesting, first you get a lighter and sharper and super LCD, but text and images could [unk] on the text screen and also responsive. HTC says it also provide the really nice theater experience various ways to customize [unk]. Below the display are the usual android short cuts for the home screen mini back and switch function. Five HTC other cool feature with icons actually rotate respond. The small details and I still really like it. When it comes to internet, some people will be a little disappointed of that there were no more improvement make it incredible, doesn't have 4G support or dual core processor. It's also running android 2.2. android and highly committed that think that it will get gingerbread though [unk] will add some points, but there are plenty of the things about the phone. This Droid Incredible 2 has programming capability and [unk] SIM card, but that means when you're [unk] it will automatically switch to compatible GSM network, so you can continue to make calls and receive data and here in the states you will be able to use the phone android like you usually do. Still go an 8-megapixel camera, but [unk] and support for 720p HD video capture The smart phone is also running a [unk] 1 gigahertz snapdragon processor, which kept the device running smoothly during our review period and battery life is much more improved over the original model. The Droid Incredible 2 definitely isn't the most cutting edge smart phone out there, but if you look a better and more refined product, I with it will price lower than 199.99 with the contract, but I think if you're after web phone, it's one of the best one Snapdragon offers right now. I'm Bonnie Cha, and this has been your first look at the HTC Droid Incredible 2.
