    Very very tough choice for me... I like my Incredible but it seems every few months the hardware is being eclipsed... the shadow should be an Incredible with a bigger screen and the droid 2 will retain the slide out qwerty....

    I think Im gonna dump my incredible and then wait to see what MOTO has up its sleeve for summer and fall.

    Thoughts?

    Why don't you try clicking on that link to see my point.

    My point was to show you that no matter how long you wait, something better will always be just around the corner. You will never have a good phone if you keep waiting for one that is better. If you like the Incredible, keep it. If it is missing something that totally devastates your ability to enjoy the phone, turn it back in and wait for/get the phone you want.

    There will ALWAYS be something better around the corner. ALWAYS. As soon as you get a Shadow or Droid 2, something else will be announced that has better specs and you will be in the Shadow or Droid 2 forum asking if you should keep the Shadow/Droid 2 or wait for the "next big thing". Never ending cycle....

    do either of those phones have set release dates? I think you should wait to see 2.2 Froyo on the DInc. If the update does what it says it will, the DInc might be hard to top.

    I am beyond happy with the Incredible and don't think the Droid 2 will compare. Besides, by the time the Droid 2 comes out there will already be rumors of the Incredible 2... it's a never ending cycle....

    As for me, I would love to have a device with a larger screen and faster processor, while maintaining the hardware keyboard.

    Return the Inc and wait for those phones. Then get teh Shadow/Droid 2, then return those and wait for the next wave of new hardware.

    Lather.
    Rinse.
    Repeat.

    I just want a 1ghz phone with vanilla Android on Verizons network. I would prefer an HTC phone but I hate the lock on Android that HTC puts on when they overlay Sense. Once they put Sense on it they can modify the kernel to minimize the useful exploits for us to gain root.

    Slave, wait for root and we can remove Sense UI if it bugs you that much.

    yeah too bad that shadow isn't better though its like a Motorola mini evo it has a newer version of the droid processor which is clocked at around 700 Droid 2 might be worth waiting for though I won't lie id return it but I rather not go through that whole process just for a phone.. rather wait till next yr can you guys imagine what will be out by then?!

    Install Launcher2 from Cyanogen's 5.07 N1 rom and it will allow you to choose that over htc sense then you have plain 2.1 look with the 3d app drawer. That's what I'm running.

    You need to learn to punctuate.

    For some reason, I don't trust Motorola's QC. Their phones feel cheap, too.

    I think you should return it. Obviously something bothers you about the Inc you have started multiple threads regarding selling/returning it.

    Keep in mind MOTO shadow will have MOTO blur which I think might have issues when it comes to software upgrades. Besides who likes blur?

    You the primary line on a 2 year contract? Two words: Annual Upgrade. No point in picking up anything else in the next few months as it'll only push the 12 months further out. By this time next year, Verizon will have a couple good Android options with their 4G network. If you get the Shadow or Droid 2 at the end of the summer or in the fall, they'll most likely be 3G and you'll be stuck until the following fall while 3-4 months after you get it, your friends will be rocking 4G phones. IMO, the Incredible won't be bested much by any other Verizon phone for the rest of the year and I'd rather not delay my upgrade availability. The only thing that'll trump this phone is a 4G capable phone. By then I'm thinking something along the lines of the EVO, only super AMOLED (and hopefully true resolution), will probably be available with Verizon.

    The peculiar thing about the Incredible over other HTC Android phones is the 'with Google' branding on the back. This leads me to suspect that the kernel is untouched and Sense is the only addition.

    You can usually sell your old phone for $400and buy a new retail for $600 so its about the same total cost as renewing your contract.
