I have owned the HTC Droid Incredible, HTC Droid INcredible 2, and now the HTC Rezound, which I think should be the Incredible 3 because of it's similarly evolved design and it's translucent red insides. I got the Inc 1 on day one. I really wanted a Nexus One for Verizon, but nope. But the Inc was better in some ways. I liked the phone a lot. Good form factor, fit in my hand well. It was fast enough. Amazing screen, but poor visibility outdoors. Horrendous battery life no matter what I did. I eventually got tired of the crappy battery life and bought an Inc 2 off ebay after having read many reviews saying that its battery life was really good and its single core cpu is faster than the Inc 1. The Inc 2 definitely was a worthy upgrade, but it had a few downsides that I had to live with. It's speaker was not nearly as loud as the Inc 1. I also struggled with the camera. I wanted to use a fast rom, so I would flash an AOSP rom, which is nice, but the camera would be grainy as heck. For a good camera, I would flash a Sense rom, but its speed and smoothness just cannot match an AOSP rom. I thought I could just live the crappy camera and not need an upgrade, but then I read reviews on the Rezound. With the previous Incredibles, I had to compromise on a few things. Now with the Rezound there's no need to compromise. Everything just works well. Even if there were AOSP roms available, I wouldn't feel the need to flash them because the phone is very fast with any rom. The camera is good, not as good as the iphone 4, but still good. Although the battery life is not as good as the Inc 2, it's close enough. The HD screen is amazing, it's a joy to surf the web on this phone. The colors may not be as rich as an AMOLED screen, but it's close, and outdoor visibility is good. The Rezound is the only phone I can say I bought without any nagging feeling that something is "off" about it. The Rezound is a phone you can buy without regret. It's not the perfect phone, but pretty close. Third time's a charm.
