    So I am getting ready to replace my curve with the incredible. I went to the store and played with it for about 30minutes and all I can say is awesome. However is there any one thing about it that would prevent someone from buying it, or is it an awesome phone with some minor flaws?

    I cant really use it alot during the day at work anyway so it would be off quite a bit, or I could plug it it, so thats not so bad.

    all i can say is this is the best phone i`ve ever used.
    the only thing spec wise is the htc evo...the iphone cant compete. its no phone out currently that will launch an app instantly and have a site like engadget.com up in about 10 seconds. i prefer to use it then my hp pavillion 64bit!
    i turn off "enable always on mobile" and my gps (i use the power settings widget for that, bluetooth and wifi). i use advanced task manager OCD like. just like my home computer i like NOTHING running. i want to just hop on and my systems work how they are designed. battery life is similar to my eris so i get about 9 hours with heavy use.
    not great...but for it, for the most part replacing my laptop its EXCELLENT!
    i keep a charger in my car and at home/work so its not a deal breaker. its just a powerful device, as powerful as a laptop plus having to be a phone.
    yesterday i found a police scanner app...seriously?:D
    its really solid for me cause i have a case/holster. it protects the screen also from falls that are face down; it has a lil lip on the case. $30 bucks at verizon :)

    For what the phone does the battery really isn't bad. It's strong enough to get through a full day of normal use (for most people.) Just get into the habit of charging the phone every night.

    This is my first android phone, and it's AWESOME. I came from a Palm Pre +, and although that phone was good, it doesn't even compare to this one. The Incredible is just soooo fast. And customizable. And although I've had it since Thursday, I feel like there's so much more to learn about it.

    Battery is definitely a bit of a flaw, but it's such a powerful device that the mediocre battery life is kind of expected. I just made sure to buy extra chargers and keep them in my car, desk, etc. Definitely go for the phone - you won't be sorry!:D

    Can't wait for the extended battery. Both for the added juice and I actually want my Inc to be a little thicker and heavier. I'm used to my storms ergonomics.

    I came from a BlackBerry as well, and the only thing that really annoys me is the sound profiles, or lack thereof. It doesn't give you a lot of options in terms of vibration and variations. But I don't really consider that to be a deal breaker. I have one of my friends who owns a Curve convinced that she wants one now too, lol.
