Well I cannot believe that I am posting in another Incredible waiting room thread... I have a Gnex and might give the new DInc a whirl, mainly in the hopes of getting better radios. Tried every radio combination under the sun for the GNex, but the radios are terrible. I'm interested as well to see how I adapt to a smaller phone after having a TB and the GNex. Would like Sense again... I miss the dialer, calender and other things the HTC brings to the table.

Apple v. Motorola patent case dismissed by frustrated judge | The Verge

Now all we need is this to happen to the HTC and Samsung case!

Does anybody know, what are the size/quality of the pics that you take WHILE recording video? I know the regular camera pics are awesome, but if I am recording a video, and take a few pics of the action, how do THOSE pics turn out?





Also, can it take pics while recording in the slow motion? Or is slow motion a playback option, and not a recording option?

Oh man, I am now faced with a major decision. My Org Inc just died today. Screen went on it. All i have is a bunch of thin white lines. Won't boot into recovery or anything. This Ing 4G isn't out either, so do I wait and go without a phone until this comes out. Nothing verizon has interests me at all!

Dude.
Seriously.
Check out Swappa.
Get yerself a DInc2 for cheap and sit it out till the DInc4G comes out. You'll be happy in the meantime and not out a fortune. You may even be able to sell it after. That way even if you don't sell it for what you bought it for, you basically rented it for cheap.

Man, I'd almost take it as an opportunity to buy something silly like a motorola citrus ($50 on swappa right now) just for the experience.
It would be like a badge of honor, being able to say "I suffered through a Moto Citrus to get this DInc4G!"

Ya, I can't switch... 90% of my family is on Verizon and same with In-Laws, so mobil to mobil allows me to have a very minimal talk\text plan and never worry along with the 10 Friends\Family... I looked at Swappa, but an Inc 2 is minimum $195... Not sure what I am going to do now.

Verizon will take you off unlimited data (if you are grandfathered) if you go without a data phone for more than a few days. Backup 3g phones are a nice thing to hold on to.

I don't plan on getting a basic phone. If anything I will find an Inc or Inc 2, but if nothing else, I will just wait it out and go without a phone for a couple weeks. Somebody local here has an Inc for $60, waiting to hear back from them.

That's what i would do. Consider it a cheap insurance cost.

I'd also consider an original Droid or an Eris. Both can be found for under $50 and a rooted Eris is worth using for a few weeks.

Also I might look at a DX or a Droid 2. Both can be had for under $100.

Also a TBolt for under $125 and an LG Spectrum for under $175.

and a resound for under 250 dollars. happy shopping!

One thing these smartphones have shown me is updates are not the end all be all. IMHO. If my device needs an update to fix a glitch in the system, fine with me. I'm all for it. But moving from ice cream sandwich to fluffy cotton candy just doesn't thrill me anymore. I want my experience to remain stable and dependable, do what it said it would do. If I need a change I'll root the phone before they force an over the air os upgrade. If this Inc4G is what I like then I'll go with it till I tire of it.

Look around carefully, you can find Galaxy Nexus for $50 (free if you have the $50 credit). I got mine free and I really like it. I hope inc4g comes out soon and it is awesome for all you who waited.

If the phone doesnt arrive this week or next, I'm going to get seriously concerned that the phone may be delayed indefinitely til possibly the end of the year

Maybe they are giving it a spec bump or making it thinner or something to keep up with the competition. When the ipad2 came out, Samsung went back to the drawing board to make the galaxy tab 10.1 even thinner.

Well that could be true..the version we have seen so far does not have the htc logo at the bottom and this.new one that has surfaced does..might be a way for them to tell the difference betwen the two

I doubt it. Theyd have to delay this phone til the end of the year to make hardware changes like that. Also since advertising posters are being sent out to stores, this is highly unlikely because all signs point to a release soon. But if it doesnt, itll most likely keep getting delayed and then once its October and Verizon realizes this phone is way overdue, they may then decide to make some hardware changes.

But the advertising posters for the phone that were sent out to stores over the weekend dont have the logo... I think it was just a way to mark testing devices or it was an earlier model.

Real simple... Go put on your favorite pair of jeans, head to the Verizon store (do this after the Galaxy 3 is released, of course), and see if you can tie your shoe laces with the Galaxy 3 in your pocket.

Basically, what's keeping me from getting the Galaxy 3 (and patiently waiting for the Inc 4g) is the screen size.

Someone talk me out of the Galaxy S3, quick!! I do not want a Samsung, and I don't want AMOLED, but something is drawing me in (maybe the fact that it seems to exist).

Just how exactly did you pull this off? Ok, looks like we are having some timestamp issues. As my stamp is showing an hour earlier than I actually posted it.

I'm waiting for ICS on my DINC 2 before jumping to the DINC 4g ... I'm in no hurry

oh!!! I'm in a time warp!!! This post was time stammped before the two after it which were already posted when I posted this....

For my next trick, I'm going to quote a post that came after this one

I decided to wait on the Inc4g. If Verizon honors their word of letting their customers know ahead of time when they're implementing the shared data, I shouldn't have a problem. But if they spring it on us only a few days ahead of time, I'll either go with a SGS3, Razr Maxx, or SGN & sell them to get the Inc4G at full price. That's my plan anyhow.

I believe you are correct sir. While the Rezound has the HTC logo in the same place as the leaked shots we've seen on the Inc4G, that doesn't mean that the Inc4G will have it at release. I remember seeing photos of tester phones of the OG Incredible, and they had the HTC logo where the Verizon logo ended up. It's very possible that the photos we've seen of the Inc4G are tester phones that will not have the logo at launch.

As far as them redesigning the phone or adding features (hardware) that would indeed push it back to the end of the year. Look how long the Thunderbolt was pushed back to add 4G LTE to it. When it was a 3G model, it was scheduled to release around Oct./Nov. of 2010. They retooled it to add LTE, and it released in March/April of 2011. That's roughly 5-6 months. The Bionic went a similar route after they discovered the issues with the Tegra chips & LTE. The revisions to the Galaxy Tab I don't believe were as extensive, and plus Samsung can handle their own hardware, while HTC & Moto are dependent on outside manufacturers to make that happen. I think what we've seen is what we're gonna get with the Inc4G, unless they plan to go the Bionic route, scrap it, and replace it with a true One series phone from HTC. But I don't think Verizon is ready to let the Incredible series die.

What they plan on doing with the Droid X series is another matter, since it's roughly the same as the Razr series except for LTE and removable battery & memory. If the Droid series continues it will end up being a Razr with a keyboard like the Droid 4 was, but I think the Droid X series is dead in the water.

Same here. The Sammy has some nice features including music out via usb, Wolfson DAC, face detection for turning off the screen, picture in picture, 29 frames per second vifeo recording, etc. Too bad the SG3 isnt an HTC phone with an lcd. That would be easy.

I'd go for it. When you consider what it can do, $40 is pretty good, assuming it's not completely beat to hell and the screen is good. Plus, you might wanna keep a spare phone around in case something like this happens again. I always keep at least one spare data dependent phone in case my primary goes out to safeguard my unlimited data. Worst case I'm sure you could get at least that on eBay or one of those trade in places.

Just checked Verizon trade-in & Gazelle. Verizon was $26, Gazelle was (I used a middle of the road condition for everything) was $16. I'd still bet you'd get more on eBay, since you're selling to the end-user, not someone who was to recycle it or resell it to someone else. Either way, if you go the Verizon route, It'll cost you $13 to get you by until the Inc4G drops. If that's 2 weeks, that's not too bad. The further it's delayed, the more you value you get out of it (assuming the $26 price holds).

I say go for it.

EDIT: Just checked eBay, the lowest Buy It Now is $19.99 (with a cracked screen), after that it's $70 & higher, some for parts, the lowest usable (with scratches) is $75.
