I had the Org Inc for 2 years and the Inc 2 for about a month. I could go either way on this one. I really like both of them. I have to say though, when using the Inc 2 in my car doc with Nav, I like the Inc 2 better. I think I would get this phone today if they would wave the $30 "upgrade" fee... That fee leaves a bad vibe with me...!

They are right. See attached. To be fair this same shot taken with my DINC2 is WAY worse, but, if low light photos are important, this could be an issue.

Then again, IIRC, the camera has a ton of settings so maybe you could tweak it.

Would if I could. I have to wait for my preordered SGS3 to ship before I can even exchange. Since I can't exchange except at a corporate store (which I won't be able to visit until the 20th) I'm hoping some on here will post their thoughts.

Yes, please post thoughts! I'm so used to Sense, I really don't want to discover missing options and new problems on Touchwiz...

Any confirmation on ImageSense being present? The store materials do not mention it so I am assuming it isn't.

NVM, review on CNET says no ImageSense.

Quite a few of the reviews are saying it has the software, just not the chip (one of which is The Verge). BGR was claiming it had the ImageSense software & chip.

I read the CNET review, the first time I've read one of theirs in awhile. They only gave it a 3 out of 5 stars.

It's kinda sad the reviews we're reading. Used to be when a phone would launch, you'd have reviews from Phandroid, DroidLife, Android Central, Engadget, & BGR at the very least a few days if not a week before the phone launched. I think I read on DroidLife that they just got their review phone a couple of days ago. There aren't even any reviews of the Verizon variant of the Galaxy S3 yet, everyone's going off of the AT&T, T-Mobile, & Sprint versions. It's like Verizon doesn't care about their devices anymore, all they care about is their new data share plans. It's getting to be pathetic for the number one carrier.

That's fair enough. I'm just looking at reviews different sites have posted and comparing them to reviews they've done of the DInc2 and the Rezound as those are the handsets I'm most familiar with. The battery life has been less than the Inc2 and closer to the Rezound everywhere I've seen.

It can't be as bad as the Rezound. If it is, the one on its way to me will be going right back. The Rezound is basically useless with the stick battery and a behemoth with the extended battery.

Well, got mine yesterday an spent the night at work with it. I work where signal is sketchy at best and no wifi so depending on where I am it will have 4g and some areas no signal at all. I did turn off wifi but I left the radios on since this is one thing that will kill a phone fast even if you are not doing anything. To my surprise it lasted all night with some light use, and when I found the 4g spot checking speeds and doing some downloading. So from about a 65% charge and a 10hr shift I still had about 20% left and thats on the initial charge since I didnt have time to do a drain and complete charge before work. First impressions are that this is an amazing phone that I cant wait to root to fix the dumb bloat verizon is trying to ruin this phone with, and most every other phone they sell. I am coming from an OG DINC so I was well overdue for an upgrade. The DINC served me well, but she was thirtsty and getting pretty long in the tooth.

I did call the corporate store that is closest to me first to see and the lady didnt even know it was released and they had none on display. When I got to the store the guy that helped me didnt know they even had them in, they were still in the shipping box in back. They really dont seem to want to sell these, so I know I was the first one at that store, had all the attention of the other sales people wanting to see it, and unless someone knows about this phone they are not likely to walk into a store and be persistant as I was that they could sell me the phone.

Again I am very impressed with it so far. Having not seen any real in depth reviews it was kind of a gamble to pay retail for it and not even get to play with it before basically telling the guy I was going to buy it. I will try to get some use out of it over the next couple days and do a review on it. Im just sad that people are so quick to dismiss this phone just because its not the next phablet with a 4k display. Its fast and the battery so far is impressive.

That was my exact experience with the Rezound. I had it a week and the battery was dead by noon every day but one. I bitched so much about it that people on here told me I had simply got a bad unit. So I bought another one. It was exactly the same. Then the extra life battery was suggested to me but when I looked at it, it basically triples the size of the phone and I'm not even exaggerating much when I say that. It was ginormous. I'm very curious to know what your experiences are with it battery wise. I've fallen in love with the battery on my Inc2 and I'm not sure I want to give that up to get a 4G phone.

I wonder if Mugen or somebody else will make an extended battery that will fit under the stock battery door. I grabbed the one they made for the Inc2 and it has served me well. Picked up about 20% additional battery life. I would think they might be able to get 2000mAh in there.

Can one of ya test something? How did HTC handle the Apple lawsuit? If you go into the stock browser and do a search for a place. When the search results give you the buttons.. "call", "directions".. etc... click the directions button and does it bring up a pop up asking you if you want to open it with maps or browser? or does it just open it in the browser?

I found no need for an extended life battery with the Inc2. My usage gets me 10-12 hours at least and usually 14-16 and that's on the stock battery.

Just a question, when you were having the Rezound die at noon, what were y using for your data connection? I currently have the Rezound, but don't have access to 4G (unless I travel about 200 miles) so I'm on WiFi and can usually get around 10 hours out of it (depending on how much I'm posting, that seems to really suck up battery).

When I have been in a 4G area, it does suck it down, but I used WiFi unless I really needed the speed. I do have the extended battery also, and while it does add size & weight, it doesn't seem so bad to me. Of course, I started out on a phone that was 3 times the thickness and weight (Moto MicroTac 650e analog phone), so even with the extended battery it feels like a featherweight.

But I will agree with you on the Inc2, that phone would get me around 1.5-2 days on a charge, but it was also 3G only. Battery optimization does help, but these OEMs really need to work on making batteries that can pack more juice in a smaller space. Granted, a 65nm cpu would probably be dead in about an hour on LTE, but even shrinking the die seems to only net a slight improvement over the previous generation.

I live in a 4G area so that was what it was connected to. I had many, many, many people tell me to just turn 4G off. To me that seemed as silly as your doctor telling you not to lift your arm above your head if doing so was painful.

Or a mechanic who turns the radio louder to drown out a noise in the engine.

Okay, I remember getting into an argument with ya about this a few months back. We'll stop it here so we don't hijack the thread again.

But if your arm hurts when you raise it above your head, why would you keep doing it? JK

damb it, that is what the last update did to the Inc 2. How can Apple patent some basic function like this. Come On... Google Nav and Goolge Search and you can't link the two so it opens right up in Maps and start Navigation? I wonder if the SG3 does the same thing when it comes out... Sorry but that is a joke, my old Org Inc prompted you to open in the browser or Maps... I think I am going to have to root this Inc 2

Thanks for checking kjarrett!!

1. make a call

Does it find it? If it does, can you select it and use the Navigation tool to route to it?

This doesn't work on my DINC 2.

I think he's asking if it has SVDO. That's the ability to do voice & data simultaneously over 3G without using WiFi or LTE. IIRC only the Thunderbolt and maybe the Rezound had that. Verizon didn't push/advertise it because they couldn't guarantee decent results everytime.

The way it works is your voice moves down to 1X & your data runs on EVDO (3G) to allow them both to run at the same time. Voice quality wasn't too bad, but the data was slow due to the fact that you were essentially running 2 data streams at the same time.

I can see where it would be handy though. You're on the phone and someone tells you where to go (you know what I mean) and you launch your navigation app to get you there.

Been lurking for awhile and will finally be upgrading from my old school LG VX8600.

Saw this in the comments of the Endgadget review. $40 from Lets talk. I have never shopped there but thought i would share since it was $60 less than the price at Best Buy.

Tried to post the link but since i am new it won't show the url. boo.

This doesn't work on my DINC 2.

Correct, that will not work on a Inc2 over 3G, however the LTE network was suppose to allow for this. I would be interested to know also. If you do the above your phone call should NOT be dropped... To verify it for sure, be sure you are NOT in wifi range, or turn off your wifi...

Yeah, that works. As long as you're on 4G, you get simultaneous voice and data.

Got the Verizon OEM holster case with kickstand that I was hoping they'd make.

Got the phone for $99 ($199 - $50 rebate - $50 online discount). Got the $5 Asurion warranty (I usually buy the warranty for one year only) not the most expensive ($6.99) plan.

Question: can anyone tell me how to turn off haptic feedback? I found the place to do so in the Sense settings, but it is OFF there and still happening.

More later...
Picture of your receipt or it didn't happen. I tried this. I knew they would say no but I tried anyways. Online you get $50 instant rebate. In store you get $50 mail in rebate you don't get both discounts online or at the store it's one or the other. Maybe you got lucky and they screwed up but I can tell you I tried this and got no where with them.

I got mine last night through letstalk.com. I got it too late to see that Droid20 at checkout thing, but thanks for the tip!

I paid $40, plus $35 for "one time upgrade and activation" but then got $25 credit for having my co-worker get one, (and he got $25 off as well). Also free overnight shipping.

If you go this route (lets talk) then you should definitely refer a "friend" even if it's someone you don't know on this forum.

Net Price: $50

I finally got to play with one in the store today...

I loved it! Definitely my favorite phone in the entire store (no S3s though).

Screen size is great, form factor was great... zippy processor. Nice phone!

I've had mine a few days now and love it. I think the only thing that I miss from my DINC 1 is the hardware button which I often used to snap a picture and to move the cursor around if I was editing some text.

My only other issue is when reading email there appears to be no way to go forward/previous to the other emails without going back to the list. Also the default bunching (whatever you want to call it) of similar emails threw me off.

I assume this is separate from the $30 Verizon activation/upgrade fee?

This was the only part i was curious about re: purchasing from LetsTalk. Still a good deal though.

Thanks for checking kjarrett!!
Yes it goes to a browser with the map which sucks cause on my DINC 1 I did this a lot and would go straight to maps and allow me to NAVIGATE. I don't see how to do that now. SOOOO LAME!

Search in Maps instead of Google.

Thanks that helps, just not as good as it was before.

For example if I search for best buy in maps it finds the closest which is actually closed and then I have to zoom out to figure out which one I want. Where before I would just a get a list of them and then click directions for the one I want. Prefer the old way but this new way is ok.

Now if I could only figure out how to move forward/back in emails without going back to the list. Also not sure I like how it groups some emails together as if they are a thread.

Went down to the store over lunch and openly fondled the thing. The screen looks slimmer than the Inc2 and is definitely taller. It looked to me like they took the Inc2, squished it in the middle and it spread up and down and that's where they ended up. It seemed snappy enough, but it had no SIM in it and there weren't any onboard apps to really test with well. I will likely end up snagging one off CL or the classifieds in a month or so when prices on them fall.

Yep, you can thank Apple for that as well. It was a part of the law suit clicking on things in the internet and opening them directly in an app. Makes me want to go back to the Org Inc. You can do it in the "Places" App. I tried on my Inc 2 and that also does open in Maps. Still to me it's a work around. The thing I don't get is how you can patent things like this? That is crap...!! I want to know if the SG3 has this same restrictions or if the law suit doesn't include them. Apple is trying to take the competition out because they can't make a phone good enough without trying to take the competition out.

The stock one. I think I found it just disappointed where it is. I was able to go into account settings and turn off threading view.

The bigger disappointment is to move forward and backward through emails while viewing an email is you must press the "Menu" image and then select next and previous instead of their being an arrow like there was on the original DINC.

Did you try swiping left or right on the screen? I am not using the stock email client, but that is pretty standard.

Yea tried that, only scrolls the email body left and right. Seems kind of dumb to not have an easy way to go forward and back through emails.

Default Give up unlimited data?

They force you to give up unlimited data when you get this phone? Is that specific to this phone or is that just something they're doing now with any phone upgrade? I haven't heard anything about this until now

The Share Everything plans started the 6/28 before that this was a pretty well advertised change so I'm surprised so many people don't know this along with the $30 upgrade fee.

This is for ANY phone upgrade not just this phone. If you want to keep your unlimited data plan you would have to pay FULL price for any phone you are wanting to upgrade to.

All upgrades are now charged a $30 upgrade fee as well.

The new share everything plans come with unlimited talk and text. They also no longer charge extra for tethering. I went with the 2GB limit because I don't use more then 1GB a month and I will actually save $40 a month compared to my old plan. Additionally you can always upgrade your plan in the middle of the cycle if you see you might go over and then lower it at the next cycle if you are not going to go over.
