Hey guys i was wondering how many of you guys have replaced your ipod/itouch with your incredible
i replaced my iphone with a handful of other phones and then replaced those phones with the incredible.
does that count?
I have stopped carrying my sandisk mp3 player, unless im going for a run.
I tried to put all my songs on the Incredible, and they loaded fine, but I didn't like the audio player. I think I'll keep my 32gb 3rd Gen.
I replaced a 32gb iPhone 3Gs! Does that count?
I'd rather see how many people have replaced their iPhone with the Incredible. More of an apples to Apples comparison, as it were. OK, I hear the groaning out there, I couldn't pass that pun up!
I never had an ipod does that count?
what app u guys using for the music player? the one it comes with or another app
For playing music or movies/videos I still prefer my iPod Touch. I wanted to replace it and pass it on to my kids, but I'm still not happy with how the Incredible handles these 2 functions.
Not yet. I still use my iPod Touch for music. I eventually want to switch but it will take a while to organize my music and replace the DRM'ed music I have.
I love my iPod Classic too much to replace it with a touch screen device. It's one of the reasons my iPod Touch was never really my primary mp3 player. I primarily use my iPod in my car, so I need physical buttons to change songs without looking.
My Incredible is quickly taking the place of my iPod Touch though.
No way. The ipod is a far better media player.
No. But I am probably not the typical iPod user. I have some music on there, use it to watch some videos, but mostly use it to play Scrabble and a few other games, plus surf the web.
It's amazing though after using the Incredible - the iPod keyboard seems antiquated. And the Incredible is soooo much faster.
I agree at this point. It also sounds better and goes a bit louder - at the gym, I use a headset that doesn't isolate (Sennheiser) and I wish the Incredible's volume could go a bit higher.
My Moto Droid replaced my Ipod Nano, and now my Incredible replaced my Moto Droid. so yes, my Incredible has replaced my Ipod Nano.
The Acer music/video player is great, but I can't link it here. It's from the Acer Android phone.
I have no volume issues and have started using my Incredible instead of my Ipod Itouch. I transferred most of my music over, and even use my phone while cutting the grass (with Sennheiser ear buds). I actually like the music better.
Nope, still use the iPod touch.
Not yet, but it most likely will, at least for everyday use. I haven't really used my 2G iPod Touch since I bought the Incredible, but that's because the Incredible is the newer toy, and I love Slacker radio, so it's been my main source of music in the car. I'm thinking about buying an extended battery and a 16 gig card to put some music onto. This way I have my core music library with me if I want to take a break from Slacker. And I like the idea of only carrying one device.
I would never get rid of my iPod though. Right now the Android Marketplace can't compete with the App Store, especially when it comes to games. As long as I have an iPod Touch, I have access to the App Store.
Not to hijack, but I mentioned this in another thread somewhere - I thought that Slacker didn't sound good in the car compared to when I used it with my Blackberry. Bass notes seem to pop rather than thump. Have you noticed this??? I could also tell in the gym with my headset.
Totally agree about the App store - but the Android marketplace is really growing fast, and eventually all those great games and apps vendors will be vending here too! Of course Apple just made it a pita to make portable games with their latest terms, but that's yet another hijack.
i have no volume issues either and sound quality is great. i also have a pair of Sennheiser earbuds, the CX300II's. they get plenty loud on the Incredible and i am actually very happy with how they sound. most of the time i only have it at about 10-12 out of 15 and its pretty damn loud.
when was the last time you used Slacker? prior to a month or two ago the android app had some serious sound quality issues. this has since been resolved and i think it is now the best sounding one out there when compared to Pandora and Last.fm.
I prefer a dedicated music player, hence why I still keep my iPod around for the car.
Oh I totally agree. But I installed Slacker on my Incredible right after I got it - the day it came out. So my comments are based on the latest version in the market. On the iPod and the Blackberry (latest version), I think it sounds fantastic. I have even hooked my iPod Touch up to my stereo at home and think Slacker sounds great. Maybe it was a fluke that day and I will have to try again on the Incredible.
Edit - this is the thread I had commented in about the sound quality:
iPod is better for music. Incredible's music app lags with animations, force closes a bunch, doesnt go loud enough, is a bitch to sync with itunes, and lacks a very easy to use UI. I used iSyncr to sync my itunes library and everything shows up (except for an issue with artists, ~10% of my songs show "unknown artist" even though all the artist details are there... both in itunes and right click -> properties )
i have a totally custom very very good audio system in my car (i won't list all the details here, but trust me, it sounds great) and slacker sounds great on it. i guess i can't call myself an audiophile since i listen to like 99% MP3's (well, high bitrate aac+) but i am obsessed with audio and Slacker suits my needs. Pandora seems hit or miss, some stuff sounds fine, and some stuff can sound pretty awful. i haven't used Last.fm in a while, tried it on my Droid when i first got it and didn't like it.
anyway, as somebody who is pretty obsessed with audio, i find the Incredible to be a good music player. it gets loud and the sound quality seems clean and clear to me. i'm pleased.
