HTC Droid Incredible 2
Challenger: HTC Droid Incredible 2
Processor: 1 GHz Snapdragon MSM8655
Screen Size: 4-inch 800x480
iPhone Threat Level: Blue
The original Droid Incredible was a powerful and uniquely attractive phone with plenty of features which made it very successful. While the Incredible 2 does improve on the original, it’s nowhere near groundbreaking.
It offers a 4-inch screen and remains a sleek looking device, but only features a 1GHz single core processor which, while significantly faster than the original, won’t stand a chance against the iPhone 5. It does have a very nice 8MP camera with dual LED flash and is expected to be world phone capable, though without Verizon’s 4G LTE. When it comes out on the 28th, it really won’t be drawing anyone’s attention away from the iPhone 5, apart from those who fell in love with the original Incredible.
This gave me a good chuckle. Very nice article by the way, it was a pleasure to read.
The Sensation should be a very sturdy phone. If you look closely, you can see that it has a unibody exoskeleton, which I believe is made from aluminum or at least some metal allow. It doesn't cover the whole phone though, so you won't have any antenna issues like the various versions of the iPhone.
- Us existing Droid and Droid 2 owners might know more than others missing out, but a good 5 row qwerty is a pretty big deal.
