    my coworker has had an incredible for over a month but cant stand the lack of physical keyboard. So she offered me to swap her incredible for my moto droid. Normally I'd do it, but i have a few reservations.

    I like the incredible but I really cant stand sense UI. I very much prefer stock android. Is it possible to reflash the incredible with stock Android UI or would I be stuck forever with sense? I plan on rooting it...how is general support for custom mods on this phone now? Is beta froyo ROM out for it yet? Also I always hear my coworker complain about battery life on inc..Is it really that bad or generally fixable?

    Overall, would this be worthy trade or not? Thanks for the feedback!

    launcher pro supossedly can over ride sense UI and do the vanilla droid UI. I haven't used it though because i like sense

    DO IT, i love this phone!!!

    and yes, launcher pro will run without sense if you want that feel. you can restore sense easily by removing launcher pro also. its very slick!!

    Only reason not to do it is if you can not do without the keyboard.

    You should base your desicion on your preferences, that been said and actually owning both devices, I would in a heartbeat. The keyboard should not be an issue, I know I rarely if ever use the Droids physical one, then again that's just me. Then there are other considerations in terms of ROMS availability in case you've rooted, as opposed to the Droid there are not many options in existence out there, at least not yet ! Good Luck.....................................

    even if you hate the phone... DO IT! You can always sell it for more $$ and buy something else.

    While I have a hatred for HTC right now, if the X was not coming out
    and I had the option of getting the incredible, i'd definitely take it

    Before you finally decide..be sure to read all the owners complaints
    of the incredible and decide if it will be worth it

    But yes, it is a much better phone than the Droid and you will certainly love it(unless you need the keyboard)

    And sense, while boring, is pretty good(mainly eyecandy) but can be easily replaced

    No complaints here. Amazing phone - if you have no need for a physical keyboard, it's a no brainer ;) I've played with both - Inc hands down better - less clunky, sexier, faster, better screen, sense ui, etc..

    While the stock battery isn't bad, you can get a $15 dollar 1500 mah battery that lasts a very long time.

    Try one out first though and check out the reviews -
