"Bonnie, how is this not an Editors Choice?!?"4.5 starson by randyoaks187
Pros: It is just as good as Verizon's HTC Droid Incredible in every way, with the following additions:
4.3" screen, front facing camera, 720p video recording, HDMI out, 4G, kickstand
Cons: Well, since CNET doesn't rate phones based on carrier, the only thing that one could say is that the size would be a problem. I went to Best Buy to check out the HD2 and I didn't have a problem with it, and neither did my wife.
Summary: I think that it is a real disservice to CNET that they haven't given this phone the editors choice over the HTC Droid Incredible. As I mentioned above, other than being slightly larger, and on a potentially inferior network (but also potentially superior, depending if you are in a 4G area) there is no reason that this phone doesn't meet or beat the Droid Incredible in every way.
I think CNET ought to revise it's Editors Choice selection process. My idea is to combine it with the Prize Fights, where the Editors Choice award would go to the Prize Fight champ. The latest and greatest phone should go up agains the Prize Fight/Editors Choice phone (which seem to be in categories, so for these, we are obviously talking smartphones). To start off now, the HTC Droid Incredible should go up against the HTC EVO 4G, and for arguments sake, when the EVO wins, it should take the Editors Choice crown, untill the next hot smart phone comes along, say the iPhone 4G, and then it would go agains the reigning Prize Fight champ, the HTC EVO 4G for the rights to the Editors Choice award. And again for arguments sake, the EVO 4G wins again, it would retain it's Prize Fight champ status, as well as it's Editors Choice award, untill the next smart phone came along to challenge it again, like say some new phone like a Windows Phone 7 phone or a webOS from Palm or even a newer android phone, to repeat the process over again (althogh even if they don't decide to fold this in to the Editors Choice process, I still think this is the way that the Prize Fights ought to be done).
