I'm back at it again with another Verizon phone review! This time I got to test out the NEW Droid Incredible 2 by HTC. This phone is much lighter than the Thunderbolt I tested a few weeks ago. I consider that a plus. The Incredible 2 has pretty much the same features however since it is also Android based. The big difference is this on is not a 4G phone. This doesn't really matter to me since I don't live in a 4G area. I thought the phone did great when I put it to the test of downloading games, checking email, and using the social network functions. Once again I like the way these phones are set-up with the swipe technology for the different screens. The Incredible 2 features a front and rear camera that takes great pictures and video.
Here's a picture I took for one of my posts while we were dining at Chili's. I thought it did a nice job. I really like that you can upload pictures right to Facebook, email, or text them right from the picture screen. It's very easy and quick to do. It's nice not having to hook the phone up to the computer or take out the included micro-SD card to do so. However, if you have several photos you want to upload all at once the phone does come with a USB power cord. I played on this phone quite a bit and checked my emails, and still had plenty of battery left. I was impressed. With this phone I was able to have instant weather reports, keep tabs of my schedule with the included calendar, check my email with one touch, and post to social networks with ease. I can't say enough good things about this phone. The only thing that I didn't like was the onscreen keyboard. I don't know if it is smaller than usual or not, but I kept hitting the wrong letters when trying to type. I did like however how the screen wasn't super sensitive when touching to open an application. The other nice thing was that to active the phone for any use you had to push the button on the top of the phone, no accidentally setting it off by touching the screen.
