    For all of us Incredible owners; are you dissapointed in the Incredible S? I mean, why release a single core, single channel phone now a days?

    I like the 4: screen, but SLCD?

    I think I'll just keep my Incredible...

    Not so much worried about the single core as i am about when this will be available in US. if you're talking about 3q then it will REALLY be outdated. If this came out say this month then cool. Wish they would of went samoled (or even amoled) but guess they got fed up with samsung over the original incredible debacle

    And don't even get me started on their tablet coming with gingerbread:D

    Merged the 'disappointed' thread to keep the discussion streamlined for now. Hoping this will be a catch all for all the Incredible S discussion for now

    Better yet, i'm gonna move your post to its own thread, this is the section for the newly announced Incredible S.

    Is this phone compatible with GSM frequencies or is it meant only for CDMA (verizon)???

    I'm checking out different tech blogs: Engadget, Droid-Life, Android Central, etc

    Some make it seem this phone is only coming to UK in Q2, whereas some don't specify and just say "will be available Q2."

    My concern is, I'm waiting for the T-Bolt. But I dig this phone a bit more, but not enough to wait forever for it. Does anyone (maybe someone who attended MWC and got to ask the question) know when or if this phone will ever hit US VZW stores?

    Will be released in UK first so i assume GSM
    Well the Phandroid article here: First Look at the Improved HTC Incredible S [Video] | Android Phone Fans
    says its coming to verizon 'in due time' and Rob Jackson (owner of phandroid and AF) was there himself. Sounds like 'in due time' is the best we gonna get for now

    TB and Inc S seem to be almost exactly the same. Inc is a little smaller and has the Inc shape and feel, seems to be the only difference to me. Would like to get both in my hand and compare screens etc for real. Knowing verizon though it will be awhile before we even here when were getting it state side

    It is not really an upgrade to our phone, the specs are the same except the screen, just newer hardwares. Such a let down for the name, Incredible.

    I agree it is a let down, though like the TB the hardware has been upgraded, just not as much as we would like. It will be newer/better cpu, etc

    saw the specs on the htc's website.
    Incredible S video player format support is bad. ie it doesn't play .avi and xvid formats whereas desire s does that..... good video player or higher MP camera??

    The Incredible S will be a great phone but losing the tracked was a big mistake. I love it and use it frequently on my Incredible. The rotating buttons are a small but good feature.

    The desire hd plays divx and xvid.
    samsung has licenced codecs from divx whereas htc does not.
    so samsung develops good video player by matching the hardware to the codecs from divx.
    on the other hand, htc does it only by tweaking the available codecs in android code which is not that efficient when it comes to video playback.

    hope there are some nice video players in the android market to turn the incredible s in to a nice video player....

    Check out Rock Player and VitalPlayer. Both play the most common codecs.

    My girlfriend has the original Moto Droid and it is continually messing up on her. She really does need a new phone and is interested in this one. Would this phone be a good upgrade for her, or should she get the Thunderbolt instead?

    One nice thing I noticed on the Incredible S is the front facing camera, no? Skype would be more fun with that if it worked with the app. :]

    Lack of a 4g radio is making the Thunderbolt look better and better.

    How does it have a front camera but not 4 g radio? I thought that american wireless carriers didn't allow that.

    So according to Engadget, the Incredible S is now in Verizon's system. So hopefully soon now. Though it'll be weird if the Incredible S comes out before the much-delayed Thunderbolt.

    Has HTC finally put a usable microphone of this phone, every HTC phones video has tinny sound, does this phone have a better sound quality.

    so you know i work at carphone in the UK...we got stock of the Incredible S on friday.

    it looks rather wierd the design with the back how it is, the matte black looks smart though...

    i LOVE my dhd...and going to a smaller screen has really put me off...tbh i see no point in this fone? it has a smaller screen with lesser feature than the DHD...yet the desire S is to have better features upon launch?

    also with all these new handsets coming out with dual core processors...i dont get it?

    Can you please (if possible) record some sample video off this phone so we can see if HTC has FINALLY put a proper mic on this phone as every other HTC records tinny audio on the video's. If they have FINALLY fixed this then I might get this to replace my Desire, but if video is still Tinny I might look as something else.

    For me a 4" screen is the maximum size I want I have tried the Desire HD but it was just way to big for me, so this is of interest.

    Cheers :D
