Features

The HTC Droid Incredible 2 isn't a huge leap forward, but it does offer a number of improvements and additional features, including world-roaming capabilities, a next-gen 1GHz Snapdragon processor, and larger 4-inch Super LCD touch screen.

Design

The Droid Incredible 2 measures 4.75 inches tall by 2.52 inches wide by 0.48 inch thick and weighs 4.77 ounces, making it slightly longer and heavier but thinner and rounder than its predecessor.

Side profile

The left side of the phone features a volume rocker and a Micro-USB port. There are no physical controls on the right spine, but we wish HTC had added a dedicated camera key.

Back

Like the original Droid Incredible, the Incredible 2 has a contoured back, which makes the phone a bit different but probably won't appeal to everyone's taste. On back, you'll also find the 8-megapixel camera and dual-LED flash.

Picture quality

Picture quality was pretty good. The camera had some problems in dimly lit rooms, as colors came out slightly dull. However, it did well in outdoor settings, and recorded 720p HD videos also looked great.
