A poorly named device that manages to squeeze a surprising amount of power into a relatively small frame.

The HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE sits somewhere in the middle of Verizon’s LTE smartphone lineup and comes with mid-range features like a 4-inch qHD screen, a dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of storage. A 1,700mAh battery gives up to a full day’s worth of heavy use or about 10 hours of video playback per charge.

On the downside, reviewers noted poor performance for both the processor and the touchscreen.

With no reason to beat around the bush, I’ll just come out and say it directly – this phone is a mid to low-tier Android device that you shouldn’t waste your time with. Verizon chose to pass on the One Series and instead gave HTC fans this. It’s specs aren’t enough to make it a powerhouse, and the build quality is so iffy and cheap, that I’d be afraid to attach 2 years of my life to it. It’s $149 from Verizon, but you can pick up the Galaxy S3 for $50 more and hang out with the Android device of the year. It’s battery life is great, as is the camera, but those aren’t big enough selling points to mask all of its downfalls.

A fast dual-core processor and LTE into a 4-inch smartphone thereby creating the fastest device at that size

There’s no doubt that the I4GLTE’s smaller 4″ display is going to turn a lot of people off who’ve become accustomed to gigantic smartphones. But, there’s still a very loyal customer base that have not (and perhaps never will) find the joy in using a device that at many times requires two hands to operate and do basic tasks. For those people, the I4GLTE is the perfect device – fast, powerful and efficient. If you’re the type who could swing either way, we still recommend you at least look at the I4GLTE. It’s not the most powerful. It’s certainly not the biggest. But what it lacks in raw speed and size it more than makes up for in comfort, ease of use and portability. In a world where large-screened phones constantly overshadow anything under 4.3″, the I4GLTE is a breath of fresh air in a crowded, oversized market.

The Droid Incredible 4G LTE is a good phone, but users who don’t desire a small 4-inch display should be sure to look at the Samsung Galaxy S III, which offers a better experience for just $50 more. If size is a major factor, the Droid Incredible 4G LTE is a worthy phone, and thanks to the 4G LTE connectivity, one I can recommend for many users, even with a two-year contract ahead.

If the Droid Incredible 4G LTE had come to Verizon Wireless two months ago when the One X came to AT&T, I expect that this phone would have flown off the shelf. As it stands right now, with Android 4.1 on the way for the Galaxy Nexus and the Galaxy S3 already on Verizon, I would have a hard time recommending this phone to anyone who was interested in “the best phone”. Fortunately for the Incredible 4G, the phone is at least $50 cheaper than the Galaxy S3 and is far more powerful than the Galaxy Nexus when it comes to processor and camera quality. At $150 on a new contract, the HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE may not be my favorite phone, but it is still a good phone.

The Droid Incredible 4G LTE takes what’s great about the Incredible brand’s legacy and makes it better, while minimizing the shortcomings of the devices that came before it. It’ll seem a little pricy to customers shopping on the spec sheet alone, and not everyone will be a fan of its smaller stature in this age of jumbo-phones. But don’t let its small size fool you: the Droid Incredible 4G LTE is a wonderfully capable smart phone. If it helps you to think of it as a pared-down HTC One X, that’s somewhat accurate- but more importantly, it’s a great device at a great price that goes a long way toward living up to its lofty brand name.

There is plenty to fall for when you look at the HTC DROID Incredible 4G LTE. The smartphone has essentially carved a niche in the US market, which is yet to be explored by the competition.

There are still plenty of people out there (including some in our office), who believe that any screen larger than 4" is simply pushing the envelope a bit too far. If you are among them, the DROID Incredible 4G LTE seems like a smartphone perfectly tailored to your needs.

Of course, the smartphone isn't without its issues. Our biggest beef with the device comes from what Verizon Wireless has done with an otherwise superb combination of Android ICS and HTC Sense 4.0. The amount of bloatware is simply too much to handle and you can't get rid (or even hide) most of it. The Wi-Fi indicator in the notification area is particularly annoying - it has no place there.

As for the rest of the smartphone's shortcomings, we do believe that they are much easier to live with, as they mostly boil down to individual preferences.

HTC’s third-gen Incredible phone redeems the franchise by tackling the opportunities its predecessor failed to bank on, while taking advantage of Androind 4.0 and Sense 4.0. LTE speeds were impressive, and so was the call quality and the 8MP shooter. But it’s quite bewildering to see HTC diminish one of its most revered mobile franchises, let alone its biggest Verizon one, by releasing a mid-level device. It’s been over a year since we’ve seen a premium HTC phone on Verizon, and we might have to hold our breath till the holiday season to see one. But for anyone seeking a smaller-sized handset carrying the latest software and LTE support at a bargain value, the Incredible 4G LTE is calling you.

A high-end smartphone in a smaller package

At $150 with a two-year contract, the Droid Incredible 4G LTE aspires to be a high-end smartphone in a smaller package. On specs and software, the phone achieves that goal, but the slightly lower price is all too evident in the phone’s design and compromised storage. An extra $50 of build materials might have made this phone great. Instead, it’s a decent option in a woefully uncrowded field of smaller, high-end smartphones.

The Droid Incredible 4G LTE left me with mixed emotions. The 4-inch display is welcome, the price is good and performance is admirable. But I can’t help but feel that HTC and Verizon took the easiest, most cost-effective route here, delivering the slightest tweaks to an old formula and an unspired update to an aging design. The result is a Droid Incredible 4G LTE that simply doesn’t fully live up to the incredible name.

Is there an audience for it? Sure. People that demand a smaller smartphone, people who believe "DROID" means anything, and people who can delude themselves into thinking saving money up front by buying mid-range hardware is "smart." It's not. Cost of 2 years of Verizon service aside, you'll likely end up replacing this cheaply built phone before your upgrade cycle comes due. As for lovers of small phones, let's face it: if you really want a small Android phone with 4G, a microSD card, and a removable battery, I doubt anything I say here is going to stop you from buying this.
