Actually, it's more than just a smartphone, or an HTC phone, or even an Android phone. This device is a "Droid." The brand that catapulted Android into relevance in the United States. To most Americans, any Android phone is a "Droid;" the terms are interchangeable to the common person. But that's not how Verizon sees it. Though the carrier offers many Android-based smartphones, it reserves the "Droid" moniker for the devices it plans on pushing. The ones it wants to move. The stars.
There are exceptions, of course -the Samsung Galaxy S III isn't branded as such- but the superstar rosters of Verizon Wireless' lineup are almost always stacked heavily in favor of "true Droids."
Like the Motorola Atrix HD, the latest Droid Incredible -awkwardly dubbed the "Droid Incredible 4G LTE"- is the third evolution of a brand dating back to 2010. Also like its Motorola cousin, the new Incredible follows a unique, well-respected originator, and a less-impressive sequel.
Is the third time the charm for HTC and Verizon Wireless? Does the new device live up to its storied progenitors? Will we be able to make it through this entire review without uttering a single "incredible" pun? Watch on to find out.
