Would be cool, but my guess is it will just be yet another 4.3" phone or bigger.

Yeah, I don't remember where I read them but the specs were pretty disappointing. Was sad to see the Incredible name seemingly attached to a mid-tier device.

Unfortunately not surprising, the inc2 wasnt top of the line either. Was hoping that this one would be though, given itd be right on time for upgrades of a lot of those who bought the first one.

Ahhh the uneducated....

The Incredible 4G uses the 28nm Snapdragon S4 SOC with ultra-fast Krait cpu cores (similar to Cortex 15) which is about as fast as Tegra 3 quad core even though its dual core.

The clock speed will be either 1.2ghz or 1.5ghz.

The internals are identical to the HTC One S which is the top performing phone to date and faster than Tegra 3 Quad core.

Well if that is the case then HTC can keep that one as well. I do not want a 4.3" screen phone... O well, looks like I will have the Inc for a long long time.. I have the one I use daily now and a backup for when this one dies.. I should be set for quite a while. OR, I don't think Apple will change the screen size in the iPhone5 but if they do, it won't be much... I may be jumping ship, and I despise Apple...That's just how much I do not want a bigger phone though...

I doubt we'll ever see another high end phone with a screen under 4.3 inches since HD screens are now popular. I have a galaxy nexus now, and whenever I need to use my wife's phone it feels like I have giant hands lol
The larger screen sizes are going to be something phone manufacturers are going to "force" people into using if they want a higher end device.

I'm definitely curious about the inc4g though and what HTC comes up with even after that. Although I'll find it hard to convince myself not to go with another "nexus" device, which hopefully HTC will get to make, if rumors are correct.

Unfortunately I agree with you 100%... I just have still a smidgen of hope left that they will build another 3.7” phone with the higher end technology. I most likely will hold out upgrading over 2012 and just see what comes out. If no 3.7” or possibly 4.0” device comes out, then I think I will just have to make a decision when the time comes as to what I do…

i still think a 4" would be my sweet spot. looks like we'll have to deal with a 4.3" though. i'm still leaning towards the razor maxx if i *have* to replace my inc. as much as i like sense - the battery life and 4g would win the vote... a new version of the inc could be great...

I went from a DInc to a DInc2 and then to a Rezound. The 4.3" screen and the crappy battery life from 4G really killed that phone for me and I found myself using the DInc2 again. It just works and gets great battery life. I'm eligible for an update, but I'm going to wait on the DInc 4G or whatever they call it to see how it actually performs. I have found that 4" is really nice for me while 4.3" stretches it. Anything bigger than that and I can't reach across the screen.

Exactly... 4.3" I can not reach to the top opposite side of the phone with my thumb unless I change my hand position on the phone. I got the rezond back in Dec and took it back after a week, went back to my Inc. It just works, I get 2 days charge out of it... etc.. etc...

I agree. I wish they would have stuck with a 4" inch screen with qhd resolution at the least. Battery life is still pretty bad with lte and the OEM's( minus moto in the maxx) aren't putting big enough batteries in the phones. A phone with a 4 inch screen and S4 processor which is supposed to help with battery would do a lot to help get the phone to make it through a day of usage.

2 days seems a bit much, but after the last update, my battery life went to 15-16 hrs with wifi on. You want bad battery life, get an LG Revolution with its 4-5hr on LTE. Now that's bad!

Believe me I had the thunderbolt and 3 hours on lte not touching the phone at all and it was dead. That was by far the worst phone ive ever had for battery life lol.

If April 26th it will be rocking. If August 26 I think It will have been left behind by then. If August I'm not interested.

Agree unless they are going to place it free on contract if it comes out in Aug they might as well just scrap it like they should have done with the bionic. I think April sounds more like it and Inc4g just had a typo when he said aug

2 days, 48 hours would be a stretch. I get 36-40 hrs (essentially 2 days) of normal use on my original Incredible. I have root and rom though. cyanogenmod7 with whatever kernal they pack with it. The cyanogenmod team does fantastic work creating stable usable roms. No Sense though, and other than the clock and weather widget that I'm sure I could find if I looked hard enough, I don't miss it. In fact, I've been on battery for 19.5 hours right now and I'm on 57%. Probably about an hour of total talk time, a couple dozen text messages, download, installed and ran Yahoo! Fantasy Baseball App, checked my e-mail and read my e-mail 3 times. A few webpages briefly. I mean, pretty normal use. Not sitting on it playing a game for an hour and a half straight, or browsing the web for 2 hours straight, that's extreme use.

Hopefully, the new S4 processor with Cyanogenmod9 can deliver this same kind of performance with LTE. Or at least that's what I've been hoping for and IMHO this is the only phone that has a reasonable chance at doing so without having a brick for a battery (I'm looking at you RZR MAXX). I feel bad for the early adopters of the Thunderbolt and Revolution. Those phones were cool but 4g wasn't widely available when they came out and those phones were flawed from the get go.

Well I am by no means a power user of my phone for one. I am on wifi 95% of the time for 2... What I do... Not much... sit at work and stream Pandora, check my e-mails as they come in, respond if necessary, text here\there, surf the web a little bit. But I am a developer at work, so I am on my PC all day, and at home I am normally on my netbook if on the internet, not my phone. So ya, it will last up to two days. Sometimes I wonder why I even have a smart phone, but I like to look something up when out and about if I need to, and I use the Google Nav quite a bit. When I am up in Northen WI on my land I get a crappy signal, so it only last a day because I it's searching for a signal a lot, but I have never ever needed a second battery or had to charge my phone throughout the day. When I use Google Nav in the car or on my bike, the phone is on the charger. I also use the 1900mah battery.

Nice on the battery life! Wish I could say the same, but I'm happy with 15-16 hrs.

I was one of those fools with a Revolution, so thanks for the sympathy! Luckily I still had my Dinc to fall back on!

People are talking about an April 22nd release date for the Incredible 4G, I just saw an article on Android Police

AT&T Officially Announces The HTC One X - Available On May 6th For $199, Pre-Orders Begin on April 22

that says AT&T is putting up the HTC One X up for preorders on April 22nd. Perhaps Verizon will do the same with the Incredible 4G since people are saying that the Incredible 4G is the Verizon version of the HTC One X. Price is also $199, which I like.

While these phones aren't necessarily groundbreaking, would this kind of force Verizon's hand to keep folks from switching providers? Anyone ever notice a pattern like that?

No, it's my understanding Incredible 4G is rumored to be a Verizon version of the HTC One S. I think the One X is a more high end phone than the One S.

So, that begs the question: What is VZ going to come out with to match the One X? Inquiring minds want to know!

That lg phone that was talked about a few weeks back and probably the moto fighter or whatever it is going to be called since verizon is so in bed with moto and especially the droid name attached to pretty much every moto device.

To be frank, that's lame. I want an HTC version. I'm a fanboy for HTC

I hope that info in that link is right. If so, I finally got my next phone... This is the part that sells me..

"The DINC 4G will feature compatibility with Verizon’s 4G LTE network, 4-inch qHD AMOLED display, and Sense 4.0 running on Android 4.0.3."

The Sense 4.0 surprises me. I thought this phone was getting Sense 3.6. I was under the impression the HTC One phones were going to get Sense 4.0

When we get our ICS update for Dinc2 we will get sense 3.6, I am almost certain.

If it ever comes, I heard the Rezound is getting ICS on 5.9.12...

Sense 4.0 does look pretty slick, i like how you can drag an icon on top of another to instantly make a folder.

I think they are just quoting what they saw on Android Police. No one knows what screen technology will be used on the phone yet. Hoping for SAMOLED or SLCD2.

That sounds dangerously familiar my friend.

It isn't an HTC One unless it is an HTC One. Period.

It is a quite heavily modified variant. He has a point. The exterior looks nothing like the One S, and the screen is not the same. 4.3" vs 4". Maybe even different screen technologies. The internals are relatively the same, but the Dinc4G is clocked lower and has LTE, NFC, a MicroSD slot, and a removable battery.
