    Well as the title says I finally got my New Retail replacement...

    But I'm shipping it back and keep my original and heres why...

    1) My original was having the no grounding issue (new one has exact same issue) so did the refurb they sent 1st... So guess i'll just deal with it.

    2) New phone has major pink hue to screen... original screen is perfectly white and clear.

    3) New camera is way more blueish outcome to it, totally noticable. Original camera has a very slight blue tint when in bright light, can be fixed with some settings.

    4) New phone speaker is no where near as loud as original phone speaker...

    5) Basically new phone is exact same as original phone S/W & H/W revision wise, much later build date obviously but with WAY more issues then the old one.


    New Phone Build Date 6/26/2010

    Original Phone Build Date 5/24/2010


    New phone also came in that UGLY Droid packaging, Ill be keeping my original limited edition white box, thanks very much :p

    After waiting a month for the replacement, absolutely pointless, Love my Incredible, so won't be switching it for any other handset... yet anyways, maybe in 6 months.


    Just thought i'd post an update.


    *edit*

    On a side note, just got my New Boxwave Crystal Screen Protector and replaced the Boxwave AntiGlare Screen Protector I had on... And i must say I LOVE the Crystal one, Thanks GrandMasterB for the idea :)

    So original phone new protector, wasn't a bad day after all lol :p hehe

    Alright, let me be the first one. I'm concerned about the production of this phones. Seems like more and more people complain about pink hue on new units?

    i cancelled my Inc replacement order and am getting the Droid X and they gave me $50 off the X for my troubles. I figure I saved $110 with the 450 off and now I won't have to buy an extended battery since the Inc battery SUUUUCKS!!!

    The Droid X looks awesome and I'm so glad I didn't get stuck with the Inc.. HTC lost their ass on the Inc!

    Was it a LCD display? My Inc is a more "true" white. Some reported a pinkish hue early on, but I have yet to see the pink after seeing about ten Incs so far (mostly demo units).

    I do know the EVO has pinkish white and the newer ones have a blueish white (Epson screens), but not seen the X yet. Droid had "true" white, so not all LCD's have the trait.

    I was talking to a friend that has a droid, and how he wants the X.

    My reply: Would you rather have the rough and tumble tomboy (moto droid or X), or the thin, sexy girl (inc)?

    Back on topic: Is there any way to tell if there's any difference in the type of screen itself? Can you still see the lines/dots when you hold it at an angle?

    Pretty sure the screen was still AMOLED, just horribly pink hued, not sure what you mean but lines/dots necosino. and I wish I could root this badboy, but it will not work no matter what I do, can't get into adb recovery with it.

    The later builds do not mean they will all have pink screens or speaker issues. I had one shipped (new) just about 2 weeks ago from Asurion.

    My first phone (purchased on 4/29) had pink hue and squeeky case/corners.

    My second phone (received end of June) doesn't have any pink hue and the squeeky case/corners are gone.

    There have been polls and it just happens that a percentage of people will have pink screen or squeeky corners.

    No matter the build date, you have the chance of getting the pinkish hue. It does not reflect the fact that later builds all have these problems.


    I (and others) get fantastic battery life. Easily over 24 hours with my 1500 mah. Very pleased! :D :)

    But batteries only cost $15 - shipping included. So not saving that much. Especially after Verizons monthly bill comes ;)

    You gotta do your research son.

    Also, the X already has problems and is rated below the Evo and Incredible by tech sites so far.. noted to be slower and laggy.

    Don't count your chickens before they hatch.

    I read nothing but high praise from you on your first incredible, yet you got it exchanged

    You also claimed to get 22+ hours from the STOCK battery back when the phone first came out. Yet you bought a 1500mAH to get 24+ hours?

    Something doesn't add up here
