I have had my Incredible for 2 days now, ok so here are the only bad/annoying things about it:

-For me, I find it hard to comfortably grip the phone in landscape view.
-Because the touch buttons are so close to the screen, sometimes my hand brushes them and the phone might send me back to the menu which is annoying and has happened quite a bit.
-For me, not sure about others, but when I watch or play anything in landscape and hold the phone on the side with the ear piece , I get a big drop in wifi signal, it even cuts it off completely. This is the major flaw for this phone, for me. The positioning of the antenna is stupid.

I only get a loss of Wifi, the 3g signal is minor loss.


Everything else is sweet. Also don't bother with app killers, its just a waste of time, only good for if you get a rogue app using up tonnes of cpu. If your phone needs more cpu, it will close background apps automatically.

Battery life: I have been using the device like crazy using wifi, web browsing, app downloading, gaming, videos. I usually get about 5-7 hours of continual gaming/browsing/video watching.

Standby not sure yet, havn't had the chance to see ^.^

Overall this is a great phone and I recommend it, only annoying thing is the placement of those touch buttons.

Hope this helps you guys looking to buy this phone.

I wish I could say I love this phone but my experience with it has been completely frustrating. I purchased it in May 2011 so I've barely had it three months and it has already gone for repair twice for 10-15 days because it just stops charging. The first time it came back from repair it lasted 2 days before it stopped charging again. Now, for the third time, I'm having the same problem. I really hope HTC values its customers and either replaces or upgrades the phone to a model that doesn't have this faulty issue. I paid almost $700 USD for this supposed "top of the line" phone and I must say I am not satisfied AT ALL!

I got this one about 3 months ago. Prior to this I had Desire HD .
This is the same but with much better battery life and front camera. It has been excellent and I highly recommend. Due to comparability with most video call apps our picture is upside down which is not this phone issues. Couple new features extra than Desire HD such as quick settings. I am very happy with this phone.

I bought this handset few days back in Banagalore, features are good and screen is excellent! but handset has major issue with signal, it keeps dropping and behaves erraticly while you remain indoors I have tried every option including GSM only option, but problem persists and HTC customer care is not effective. So please check before you buy

People , I need to know the incoming ring volume of this phone ? on playing with the phone at a store and testing the ring volume by going to settings , i found it surprisingly low.do you have problems missing calls on this one ? I like this phone overall , but I'd not want to buy it if it does not satisfy the plain basics of what a phone should do.
