HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE vs The HTC One X: specs and features


    HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE is hogging limelight. Though, a good phone, it fails against another HTC smartphone, HTC One X. Here is specs and features comparison of the two phones

    It may not be hogging as much limelight as Samsung’s galaxy s3, but Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer HTC’s Droid Incredible 4G LTE is a great smartphone in its own and should attract attention in us in the days to come. With Galaxy S3 still months away –at least in the US –the ‘little’ 4 inch smartphone has time to get good exposure and sales too in the North American markets.

    The latest HTC phone has landed on Verizon network and it is going to reap the fruit of its launch in the days to come. The phone comes with great specifications and features and users are going to love it.

    HTC’s Droid Incredible 4G really feels very fast and speedy. It has a 4-inch Super LCD display that looks amazingly good on a ‘small’ 4 inch body of the smartphone. On Verizon network, the phone is powered by a rather very powerful 1.2-GHz Qualcomm S4 processor. The reviewers have said that using internet or even using different applications on the phone is fast and there were never any delays in either loading applications or web pages.

    It feels rather short on onboard memory as it has merely 8 GB of memory. At a time when smartphone manufacturers are giving 64 GB of memory options on smartphones, the paltry 8GB feels really very disappointing.

    If you compare Droid Incredible 4G even with HTC’s own phones launched recently in the US market you will find it rather with low quality. The HTC One X is lightweight and slim – in fact it ranges among the super-slim category. It has a polycarbonate finish much like that of Nokia’s Lumia 800, instead of the typical metal cover to keep the weight down. The rear is matted and the sides have polished finish. The screen is a large 4.7-inch 720p (1,280×720 pixels) scratch-resistant ‘Gorilla Glass’. The display is impressive with warm colours and sharp text and images. There are no onscreen software buttons. Instead there are three touch-sensitive keys located just below the screen. It is also packed with a quad-core processor that is said to be faster than any other currently inside an Android phone on the market. It also has better memory options. The One X has 32GB onboard storage, and makes up for the lack of peripheral memory by integrating with online storage system Dropbox. This means free usage of 25GB storage space for two years.

    But people are happy with a smaller android 4 smartphone. A reader has this to say, “Yeah, I’m really happy that there’s finally a high-end Android phone that also isn’t ridiculously gigantic. I have a Galaxy Nexus and this thing is too large. In the past two years, Android phone makers have equated small phones with budget and large phones with high-end. Which is so stupid. I would kill for an HTC One V with good specs”.

    The latest HTC smartphone comes preloaded with Android 4 Ice Cream Sandwich besides HTC’s Sense 4. It also has 8MP camera that also seems very efficient.
