Hey guys, I guess this is more of a rant than an actual review of the device but I want to share this with everyone else so you dont end up finding out the hard way. Last week I upgraded our phones to the new HTC Incredible with Verizon Wireless. I picked up 2 of these. One for me, and one for my wife. After about a week of owning them I've decided to return them. Pros: Feature Rich Awesome screen Very responsive OS Lots of excellent apps Excellent voice recognition and touchscreen quality Cons: Minor con (the camera is not that great for an 8 MP camera, its just "ok") The biggest con and deal breaker for me is the battery life. I cant believe in this day and age they would even dare to release a battery like this with such an advanced device. I took my phone off charge at 8 am this morning, by 2 pm my phone was already at HALF charge and I've only made 2 or 3 short phone calls (a couple minutes each). We barely make it through the day. I've found myself looking for a land-line more often this past week in fear of draining the cell battery. I really wonder how anyone can go through a day using this device for sending/receiving emails, car navigation, playing games, or surfing the internet. Its seriously a joke. What good is a feature rich phone like this when you cant even use the features? Its ridiculous. The phone comes with a 1300 mah battery and they are releasing a 2150 mah battery soon for $60.00 each. After spending about $400 for these things I dont think I'm ready to drop another $120 just to get another 850 mah (about a half day's charge with MINIMAL usage) out of it. This should have been a free upgrade to customers. I've checked to make sure there are no extra apps running. I close out of everything and disabled Wifi and GPS. Even if the phone did lasted a full day with moderate to heavy use; what if I forget to charge my phone ONE night? Am I dead in the water the next day? Thats not acceptable. I've owned blackberries in the past (ofcourse they are not as feature rich) and I've been used to getting a good 2 to 3 days of moderate use (including navigation in the car) without having to charge. At this point the only features I'm interested in are Phone, GPS Navigation, Email, and some internet browsing. I'm sorry to say but I think Im going to be switching to a blackberry. Everyone seems to love the iPhone, is the battery on the iPhone this bad too? Its a shame that its only available on AT&T. I prefer Verizon over AT&T.
