Droid X vs Droid Incredible

Verizon's Motorola Droid X vs. HTC Droid Incredible

Yesterday's Droid X announcement left a lot of Verizon customers eagerly anticipating its arrival in July. But at $200, the introductory price is the same price as the HTC Droid Incredible, which hit stores in April and promptly sold out. If you're an existing Verizon customer due for an upgrade this year, or if you're thinking of signing a new Verizon contract, check out a side-by-side comparison of the two phones after the jump.




At first glance, they seem similar because of their large glass screens and the Android 2.1 OS, but the Droid X is technically superior. While both feature an eight megapixel camera and the ability to record video, the Droid X records video in HD and has an HDMI output. The Droid X's screen is larger, too; the 4.3-inch touchscreen with 854x480 pixel display beats the Incredible's 3.7-inch, 800x480px screen. Both phones come with 8GB of internal memory, but the Droid X supports up to 32 additional GB of removable Micro SD storage for a total of 40GB; the Incredible only supports 16GB of additional storage to total 24GB. And while the Droid X will ship with Android 2.1, the upgrade to 2.2 will become available later this Summer for all Android handsets.

With a technically superior phone offered at the same price, my guess is that the price on the Incredible will eventually drop. It's not a bad phone — as evidenced by its sales record — but for high-quality video or apps requiring more memory, the Droid X is a better bet.

I love my Incredible!! It is the perfect size; not big & bulky like the X. The screen is so clear & bright. It is definitely my pick over any of them & I looked at all of them. I haven't had any problems at all. The battery lasts all day. I charge it every night.The Verizon lady said it was her pick also.
