Kickstand. I'm sure the big one will be price point.
4" screen vs 4.3" screen (a big deal since a lot of people think 4" is the perfect size)
And those awesome Android buttons that rotate with the phone when you go from portrait to landscape.Kevin F.I.M.T.K. O'Quinn Esq.

I won't know if the 4" screen is "perfect" until I see it. Really glad this thing is (supposedly) going to work overseas on GSM networks. Awesome!Palm Treo 650 > Treo 700p > BB Curve 8330 > DInc (r) > Rezound (r) > Moto X 2013 & 2014

If price wasn't necessarily an issue, then why would someone pick this over the HTC Thunderbolt?
I mean the Thunderbolt has 4g (really big thing) and you can lock in the $30 pricing if you get it now. Also it has a kickstand (minor thing) and a slightly bigger screen (usually seen as good).
There is not alot of differentiation going on here and that's just plain confusing for a consumer.

Inc 2 will likely be $200 on contract opposed to the TBolt's $250. Inc 2 has also been mentioned as a "wold phone" so it might be a better choice for business people. Tbolt has LTE. Other than that, I get the impression that they are basically the same phone.
But that could be said for all of HTC's current offering other than the Evo 3DDroid Incredible (4/29/10) -> TBolt (4/9/11) -> GNex (4/1/2012) > Droid Maxx (9/13/13)

The main reason why I originally liked this phone over the bolt was because I assumed it would be smaller but the dimensions are virtually the same. I still think I will get it if it has the global capacity, but that isn't a huge deal. There will need to be a significantly cheaper price or some other feature that makes it stand apart from the bolt.

I'm definitely looking forward to this phone. Having a BB for the past five years has been long enough. I need to take the jump from my tour as soon as possible as the thing is dying a slow death. While I wouldn't mind 4g as I live in a 4g area, I don't want the 4.3 screen in the TB and I want a phone to last me all day thru moderate use.

I like the single-piece battery back cover the this and the EVO have versus the partial back battery cover the Thunderbolt has. Much easier to design a smoother extended battery cover as opposed to the pregnant look the Bolt's extended battery gives it.

100% wrong. The incredible 2 (s) has a super LCD screen while the thunderbolt has a new TFT screen. The difference is highly noticeable on pictures with the thunderbolt and incredible s side by side (forgot what website these pics were on).
Also, a friend on mine emailed HTC and they confirmed that the thunderbolt DOES NOT have a super lcd display.

All I had to do to find out the screen type was look at HTC's website. It didn't take an email. Full specs are HERE.
Which only supports the fact that this phone (IMHO) is the best option for people that won't have LTE for a while. (between this and the Thunderbolt)Kevin F.I.M.T.K. O'Quinn Esq.
