The back side of the HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE features the classic Droid Incredible raised battery cover. Its trapezoidal shape, unsymmetrical edges, and textured surface give the device a sci-fi feel.

Running HTC's Sense 4 UI on top of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE offers seven customizable home screens. They're populated with some useful widgets out of the box like this one for toggling often-used system settings.

Like many other phone makers these days, the HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE provides access to a branded video store. Called HTC Watch, the storefront contains a selection of movies and TV shows to rent and buy.

As a modern Android phone, the HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE comes equipped with a wide range of Google services and software. You can also download from a large selection of third-party apps from the Google Play store.

Part of the trade-off with the HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE's more compact and pocket-friendly size is its comparatively small screen. At 4 inches, the qHD resolution (960 x 540 pixels) isn't as sharp or as high contrast as other phone's displays.
