    Any of you following the Incredible 4G Forum? If rumors are correct it looks like the end of April we will have 4" Display phone with some updated hardware. Will you upgrade your Inc if you still have one for this phone? I am waiting to see when it comes out what it truly is, but may consider purchasing it off contract.

    I'm interested in upgrading, although I wish the screen were just a little bit larger. 4.3" sounds (and looks) good to me, after handling similar phones in stores. But 4" is still better for my poor eyes than my current 3.7", I guess.

    Definitely a no for me. I will never go back to skinned Android and HTC are horrible with updates.

    On a side note, it kinda irks me that HTC and Verizon don't see the Incredible brand as being a flagship model. The original Incredible was as it's name describes; top of the line specs and the best phone out at the time (including the i*hone) and for a while afterwards. When the Inc2 came out I was excited, but ultimately disappointed in it's "middle of the roadness." Single-core, no LTE, all kinds of bummer. Don't get me wrong, it's a great phone and I got a few friends to buy one, but I felt that the brand had been pushed to the background. Now the Inc4G is coming out, it sounds like it will be borderline dated upon release, depending upon what kind of screen it has. No one is really talking about it, and those that are brushing it off. I just think it's a shame. The way the original sold, I think it could have rivaled the i*hone in popularity. Too bad Verizon is too busy pushing Motorolas and Apples, and HTC is busy making a billion models of the same phone. /end rant

    From all the chatter, it sounds more and more like you may get your wish. Hopefully we will get something official soon.

    Really? I've been out of it for a few days, and must have missed the chatter. Can you point me at some of this? I'm curious to see what new tidbits are coming up.

    Although no one knows for sure, it appears that the screen will be 4.3". There are a few pages in the speculation thread of the Incredible 4G forum which discuss this. But what bothers me is the resolution also appears to only be 540x960. This is a step back from the hd screen on the Resound. Does that make sense? Why come out with this new high end phone, and have a lack luster resolution on a lesser quality screen? :thinking:

    Doesn't appear that way to me... Inc 4G

    Lies. HTC is as good as Motorola at getting updates pushed out. And until recently getting a timely update from Samsung was less likely than winning the lottery.

    First off I don't see why you care how Verizon/HTC brand their products. I buy my devices based on their performance/cost/etc, not their name. I would have bought my Razr (my current device) even if it was called the Droid Dysentaria-matic 5103.

    Onto you're perception that the Inc 4g is dated/midrange, that's just not true. It seems like it is if you're in the "I need more mega-whatzits" crowd, but more cores/mhz doesn't necessarily make a better processor. Based on benchmarking the S4 and the Tegra 3 Quadcore are quite competitive, and in the real world where virtually no apps are setup the parralism and hyperthread features necessary to get the most out of a large number of cores the S4 should blow the Tegra out of the water. Not to mention it also should consume alot less power doing it.

    I didn't see anywhere in DWasilew's post where he said he only buys phones based on their name. His point is the phone HTC is releasing as the Incredible 4g would be like a sports car having mid-range feature. And ok, so 1 benchmark shows the 4g as competing with the Tegra 3 Quadcore, but those of us in the US (hence VZW) aren't getting anything with a Tegra 3. And if it has the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4, like the US HTC One X variants, that it's still only a 1.2 vs the "top end" 1.5. And just makes no apps currently use everything a Quadcore has doesn't mean that won't. Why would anyone makes apps that need that when they weren't even out yet.

    The update to Gingerbread was a horrible mess. It took well over a year for them to attempt to release it. When they finally get around to it, it's a buggy mess that messed up a lot of people's phone. Then they pull it, and release a new version a long while latter, that blocks root and still messes up some people's phones. Luckily I rooted just before that disaster. Also, I never said Moto or Sammy were any better. I was alluding to the fact that I will probably only purchase Nexus devices going forward because of stock Android and timely updates, even though Verizon is screwing us over on that one too.

    Also, I don't buy a phone based on a brand, but a lot of people do. I just think that VZW and HTC missed an opportunity to really establish the Incredible brand as a flagship phone that can compete with the i*hone and Galaxy Series.

    Lastly, while the S4 seems like it will be a great CPU, ad I believe the Inc4GLTE will be a good phone, I was trying to point out that most people think this phone is a joke and a missed opportunity, (just like what they said with the Inc2). Even when this thing is release and it exceeds everyone's expectations, people are still gonna hate on it. "It's not 720p resolution screen", "The screen is only 4 inches", "It's not the One X"...blah blah blah.
