I for one am one of the people that fell for the hype. I have now decided to return the Incredible and came back to the Eris. I felt there wasn't enough differences or that "WOW" features to justify the purchase. I was wanting to see who else returned their Incredible and has come back to the Eris. The Goods of Incredible in my findings: -Qualcomm Snapdragon QSD8650 , 1 GHz -3.7" 480 x 800 - (WGVA) AMOLED display -8GB of internal memory -512MB of RAM -Sense UI The Bad of Incredible in my findings: Edit: Examples in Red -CDMA radio performance Reception is worse than Eris in my Office at work -Possible grounding issue (Touch screen will not always work based on what material the phone is sitting on) Screen would suffer with screen jumping with no input and would become unresponsive in windshield mount, and charging at my desk at work -Cheap plastics (Not what HTC normally puts out. Almost as if it's designed to be dropped and broken) Plastic bezel was severely scratched by keys (Eris still looks brand new) -8 MP camera is very poor quality for an 8mp camera (I expected better) -Same battery as the Eris (And the Eris forum thought battery life was bad) For a premium smartphone I expected better -Qualcomm Snapdragon QSD8650 , 1 GHz (This 65nm processor is a power hog and has poor 3D processing. TI's newer 45nm OMAP 3 and OMAP 4 with PowerVR technology seems to be just as powerful but uses less power and has better GFX acceleration) Frames skips and lag in games like Raging Thunder and other 3D supported games, I expected the new hotness to play things flawlessly -3D accelerations of the integrated ATI z430 (The Droid with it's less powerful OMAP 3430 processor seems to be able to do a better job at processing 3D graphics.) Same as above -Out of stock (You are put on a month long waiting list if your phone is defective. Unacceptable Verizon) Was going to try and get a replacement phone on May 18 due to the screen jumping. Customer service rep me told they wouldn't be able to send me a replacement until June 15. Then found on forums that the screen jumping was a common issue and then decided to send the phone back for good. -Screen is almost unusable in direct sunlight. (There's a reason that Samsung is making Super AMOLED now) When I was at Wilmington Beach the first week of may I had to cover my head with a towel just to read an e-mail. Bonnie Cha with CNET even states the screen hard to see in bright sunlight Don't get me wrong. I'm not trying to say the Eris is a better phone than the Incredible. I'm just saying there are certain aspects of the Eris that seem more appealing to me such as build quality that I had trouble overlooking. And it looks like there are other alternatives in the not so distant future. Just getting opinions of people that jumped ship but have came back and why. As I stated this is only my opinion and is meant to be interpreted that way. Another hope with this thread to also let the Eris owners know they aren't missing as much as they might think, because they are stuck in a contract and waiting might end up prevailing in the end. It is more or less a discussion of why people ended up going with the Eris instead of the Incredible. I stated my opinion of the device that is all. This discussion is not meant for the Incredible users to come in here and start bashing people because they think their phone is being threatened.
