"iPhone? Who needs it!"4.5 starson by NewYorkbizlawyer
Pros: I'm finicky about phones. I held onto my Blackberry while passing on the Storm, the Eris and the Droid. Since the iPhone isn't coming out soon, I bought the Incredible based on my gut. The Incredible is just that: Truly incredible.
Cons: Everything. I'm pretty much blown away. As the title of my review indicates, "Who needs the iPhone?"
Summary: Maybe it's because I live in NYC but I haven't even come close to dropping a call and my reception is fine. The battery life is surprisingly good. My charge lasts an entire day with moderate internet and phone usage. Many people warned me that I wouldn't receive my emails as quickly as with my Blackberry. Not a problem - I receive my hotmail and pop (business) emails almost instantaneously. The browser speed is outrageous - almost as fast as my home computer. I kid you not. The interface is gorgeous and user-friendly. I've never owned a touch screen and was able to pick it up with ease in a day or so. I was concerned about the keyboard because I'm not a spring chicken and I have clunky fingers. Big surprise. The keyboard, at least when turned to landscape is not a problem. Not a problem at all. The interface is gorgeous and I'm having so much fun with all the free Apps (especially, Open Table and Swirl - I'm a foodie!). Oh, did I mention that the phone is a whopping 8 mega-pixels. Are there glitches? Sure. Voice dial has a long way to go yet, synching to Outlook was troublesome initially and navigation probably could be simpler. I'm still having some trouble with call waiting but I probably just need to read the manual for answers. All-in-all, I'm thrilled.
