HTC DROID Incredible 4G LTE goes on sale July 5 for $150

droid incredible 4g lte

The DROID Incredible series has been a solid entry to mid-range player on the Verizon Wireless network. HTC and Verizon are set to launch the next generation of Incredible on July 5th in Verizon stores, and will retail for $149.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate debit card. While not the Galaxy S III we know several of you readers are looking for, the DROID Incredible 4G LTE is a solid device for those of you who think 4.8″ screens are a tad on the large side.

    I think this will be a great option for those who dont want a 4.3+ phone.

    As appetizing as a 4″ screen is for my little girl hands, it seems that the only devices that you can depend on full support from the OEM, Google, and 3rd party accessory manufacturers are going to be the Nexus devices.

    • http://www.jaxidian.org/update/ jaxidian

      Add the HTC One series and Galaxy S3 devices to your list there. They will be VERY well supported, ESPECIALLY the SGS3!

      • http://midweststitch.com ajonrichards

        I thought the original HTC Incredible would have a longer support cycle, but HTC seems to move from flagship phone to flagship phone. I was surprised to learn that the Nexus S is still slated to receive Android 4.1. That’s the kind of support I like to see.

        • redraider133

          the original inc is still getting updates, albeit not ICS like some would like but that is still pretty good and since it has the same specs as the nexus 1 it only makes sense htc would not get ICS on it especially with adding their skin on top of android.

      • spazby

        agreed but i will also stick to nexus going forward… it is just safe and hopefully, there will be nexus for every carrier…

  • uknowme

    Doesn’t sound too bad for a entry-mid level phone. It’s kinda hard to look at those specs and think that’s what this is now. A year ago that would have been a contender.

    • Derek

      Are you stupid? This is the same hardware as in the HTC One X or SGS3. Dualcore S4. Idiot. Just because it doesnt have a 5″ screen doesnt make it entry-mid level.

      • uknowme

        First off relax, it’s not that important. Second did you actually read the first sentence? ” The DROID Incredible series has been a solid entry to mid-range player”

      • Richard Yarrell

        Same hardware… NOT…. Let’s not fool people here. This device on Verizon’s LTE network will have poor battery life just like the Galaxy Nexus on Verizon. This is not the Galaxy S3 in no way 1.2 dual core processor is not 1.5 dual core processor. 1GB of ram is not 2gb of ram. Nice device but nothing special that’s for sure…

        • BigCiX

          GS III (U.S. version) has a 1.4 exynos dual core processor. The One X has a 1.5

          • redraider133

            actually gs3 US is snapdragon s4 processor( the international has the quad core exynos)

  • fletchtb

    This looks to be a nice phone.

    My wife is still happy with her DINC 1, although it is really starting to show its age. The original DINC was a legend and the DINC2 was a nice followup. I know a lot of people who are happy with their DINC2.

    I am sure the Droid Incredible 4G will be a solid seller for Verizon and HTC!

      You guys know where can i order or inquire bout this phone? i’m from Philippines.

  • thaghost

    I thought mail in rebates were dying off? Guess i was wrong.

    • GeauxLSU

      Maybe VZW will allow you to skip the MIR process if you order it online like they did in the past. I think that was their way of trying to keep you out of the store.

  • Nathan D.

    This phone is like the HTC one s but with some extra but has less memory. It still a great optional device for a low price.

    • Leo209

      Agree. at least this phone has NFC , so at least it could use all ICS features like Android Beam. I was disappointed to see that the One S has ICS right out of the box, and it was already lacking features available in ICS.

    • thaghost

      Its not that close to a One S. it has a smaller screen. It uses super lcd instead of super amoled. It has a thicker profile and a slower clocked processor and its heavier and its ugly. Dont mean to split hairs but save for the nfc chip this doesnt touch the One S.

  • oddball

    This is a great little midrange phone. It will be completely dominated by s3 sales and the new Verizon plans. Too bad for HTC that this is how the timing was set

  • Lalo

    Motorola droid razr update available now “not ics”

    • Lalo

      Sorry if ICS :D

  • Chris Lewis

    what the hell happened to HTC streamlining their product line? First the Evo, now a Droid variation of the One series!?? htc needs to take note from samsung and stand up to the carriers who are demanding lame variations that require different accessories! If Samsung can do it so can you htc!!!

    And on a side note, it’s clear to me now why vz hasen’t released the Samsung Galaxy S3!
    July 11th Cant come fast enough!!!!!!

  • Mustanger

    “Entry to mid-range”??? Maybe the Inc 2 and follow-ons, but the Inc 1 was a top contender in its day. Great specs, even better performance, and a unique and sexy design. Nothing “entry to mid-range” about it (back then, anyways).
