Got mine! First impressions & questions...General

    VERY impressed!

    The phone is CRAZY responsive. Screen is beautiful. Narrowness vs. my INC2 is not so great but I'll live (wish it was the same form factor, love the 2" screen.) It's FAST, FAST, FASSSSSSST! Menus (ICS 4.0) are taking a little getting used to. Sense is awesome. Light, solid feel. Screen glass is gorgeous, almost don't want to cover it up. 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...

    So the store you got it from gave you an online discount plus the rebate?

    Yep. First thing I asked. I'd priced it online and knew exactly what it was supposed to be. Only downside is I have to apply for the rebate by mail. No big!

    Did you have unlimited data and gave it up? How did you order this phone already on-line and get it? So if you order it on-line you get a $50 online discount AND a $50 mail in rebate???

    On my nexus, haptic feedback is located at settings, sound, then uncheck vibrate on touch under the system section.

    Ordered one this morning and looking forward to getting it tomorrow...

    I had upgraded to the Family Share plan on the 28th. It worked out for me. I thought I posted here. Ended up saving $0.40 on my monthly bill when I spec'd the 4gb plan. Our usage is closer to 2gb. So I figured I was in the clear.

    I didn't ORDER it online, I used the website to price the phone so I knew if they wanted to charge more I could just order it at home.

    Turns out they gave me the online discount AND the rebate without issue. I'm happy.

    Well, they have sold one for sure so far.

    In the store now, and the screen is smaller than the Inc2. They claim both are 4", but everything is smaller on the screen of the Inc4G compared to the Inc2.

    To turn off haptic while typing:

    Settings -> Language & Keyboard -> HTC Sense Input -> Vibration feedback

    This is correct. It's my only gripe so far. So, so, soooooo wish the form factor was identical to the DINC2...

    Yup, smaller screen actually caused me.to walk out without it. I may still get it, as it was fantastic otherwise.

    It's just a different shape, right? It sounds like it is more like the OG Dinc screen shape.

    Are we talking width or length? It's truly smaller?
  14. hilmar2k

    hilmar2k Well-Known Member

    It's still 4", but its a different ratio of length versus width. When viewing anything in portrait, everything is smaller than on the Inc2.

    I walked through the order process on-line. $199.99 - $50 on-line discount + $30 Upgrade fee??? What the hell is this $30 upgrade fee??? Verizon can kiss my A$$ if they ever think I will buy another subsidized phone from them. I will wait to see if I can get this phone in a couple months for say $300 or so. What the hell is the point of giving me a $50 on-line "discount", but then tacking on an "Upgrade Fee"... They should be THANKFULL I am willing to possibly sign a new 2 year contract... NOT charge me a fee to do it... Ugg I am so PO'ed with them. Between waiting on releasing this phone till after the new plans, then forcing us to ditch our unlimited data, now tacking on a "fee" to upgrade... :mad:

    Could be settings based. Sense 4 maybe. Couldn't be possible that a company would build a media device that couldn't take advantage of the entire screen. Could it?

    Sizewise, how does it compare to the Inc2? Does it seem heftier? Lighter? Thicker? Thinner?

    My understanding of the "upgrade fee" is to offset the cost verizon incurs while teaching us how to use our too smart for us smartphones. My "loyalty" discount is $30. So it's a wash. Pisses me off for sure. I've told them to stop calling it a loyalty discount. Change it to upgrade offset. After all, I hardly do anything for thirty bucks anymore.

    The reason everything looks smaller is the resolution. When I went from an Inc2 to a Rezound, the screen was bigger but the icons were smaller. It's just like when you adjust the resolution on a pc, the lower the resolution the larger the icons. The higher the resolution, the smaller the icons. Without seeing one in person, I'd guess that the icons are the same size as on the Rezound. I say that because I'm assuming that 4" screen with qHD resolution will have similar icon size as a 4.3" screen with 720p resolution. Since that's the screen ratio, there is no changing it in settings, unless they added that in ICS or Sense 4. I know I couldn't change it on my Rezound.

    It took a lot of getting used to going to the higher resolution, but it doesn't bother me any more. And I'd guess you aren't going to see anything less than qHD going forward.

    I don't have any "loyalty" discount and I have been with them for 15 years? They treat everybody differently. I don't get it and I'm sick of trying to figuring it out. I don't think they offer me anything because they want me off my old Alltel plan. I will just buy phones I want outright from today going froward until the day comes they force me to change my plan. Then I will decide what I want to do at that point. Why pay $179 for a phone on a two year contract that forces me to get rid of unlimited data, when for a couple hundred more I can just have the phone and not have to deal with all the major BS!! Sorry for the rant... Just frustrated

    Slightly smaller, slightly thinner, about as hefty, better built. It's feels great in the hand.
  22. hilmar2k

    Yeah, that dawned on me after. The screen is definitely narrower, however. My math says the Inc2 screen is 2.058" x 3.43", and the Inc4G is 1.961" x 3.486". So the Inc 4G is just slightly less than 1/10th of an inch narrower (though in comparison it looks like a bigger difference than that).

    For me it may come down to whether it can do wireless charging or not. I love wireless charging on my DInc2 and didn't see any accessories for the 4G at all on their site so they may not have showed up yet.

    That's pretty bad for Li-Ion batteries. Causes too much heat.
  25. vzwuser76

    Yeah, so I'd guess you'll now see less/ no black bars when watching widescreen content. IIRC, the ratios for each phone would be close to: Inc2 - 16:10 & the Inc4g -16:9. It's kinda similar as comparing the Thunderbolt to the Rezound, both are 4.3" but the Thunderbolt is shorter & wider, while the Rezound is taller & narrower.

    I like what I heard on the build quality. I thought my Inc2 was the most solid feeling of all the HTC phones I've had (Inc 1&2, Thunderbolt, & Rezound), so that's reassuring.
