    Default Well, Mine Is Going Back

    Gosh Fellas,

    I had high hopes but after a day in the saddle I am disappointed and going back to my OG DROID.

    My gripes are, and I'm calling it like I see it guys: I took the thing to a store to compare and let the techs have it and they told me it as it should be.

    At first I thought it was going to be good. But the more I used it the more I kept getting irritated.

    The phone is not loud enough. Ring tones are half the volume of my OGD. Music playback is so low I could not believe it. The quality through my ear buds is lack luster.
    Call voice quality shows no improvement over my OGD. I actually was told I sounded like I was in a tunnel. I have to have it all the way up and the ODG I have to turn it down or suffer pain.
    Webb browsing was horrid experience on a site I must use to earn a living. The OGD surfs it with ease and I had to try Firefox, Opra, Dolphin to get anywhere but nothing ike the OGD as shipped. And Slow Slow Slow.
    The Navigation was really screwy and took forever to find the GPS.
    Mercy sakes if I got a bad one, I got a real bad one but its enough for me to return it and wait for the next wonder phone.

    And though the Dinc2 is getting rave reviews on battery life, not on my unit. Not better then the old OGD anyway.

    Good Luck Guys,

    Sounds like a defective unit.

    I don't know what you're expecting people to tell you. Sorry you received a defective phone? Just go get it replaced. Something is clearly wrong because there's no way this many people who love the phone (including myself) are delusional.

    Sad to see you go and to hear you had so many problems my experience has been the opposite the browser is fast faster than my d2 running gb, gps lock is almost instant and, call quality has been great. I'm very happy with this phone though the load speaker could be a little loader it is still good enough for my usage

    Hey Nazzi,

    You might try a replacement phone 1st. You still have the option to return it and if you do not experience the same problems then there you go. The DInc 2 is an Incredible phone and hands down is the best phone I have owned. I am surprised that the volume in your earphones was not loud enough.... Hey well if you do return it and wait hopefully you find something sooner than later.

    I had a similar experience with my Eris. Was ready to walk away, but a replacement phone solved everything.

    +1 I'm out on Moto phones for a while. Wife and I went through prolly 15 D1's and D2's combined! HTC DINC 1 has been a much better experience for both of us, we love it!!! We are due to upgrade in Feb, and keeping a close eye on this Forum for the DINC 2, as so far we like what we have seen/read.

    It wasn't the ear piece volume. It was the speaker phone.

    The speaker phone hole is so tiny, I'm not surprised the volume and sound is horrible.

    I don't see anything wrong with the post. People might need to know what to watch out for.

    I have not experienced any of those issues at all. In fact my device has surpassed my Droid 2 experience in terms of things I like and that work better.

    My sound on speaker phone is a bit low. But the sound quality doesn't suffer. And music sounds great with the srs surround sound feature

    My battery life is amazing. Lasts all day when i'm not in my office (dead zone) my friend works outside all day and use to have to charge is incredible at lunch. his DINC2 is lasting till he gets home with a little bit of a buffer (17% left)

    i think you got a bad unit NAZZI or perhaps need to change some settings around. you could just go get a replacement. I honestly think you are just looking for an excuse to return the phone.

    and i have to agree with other posters. if you are asking our opinion and advice you got it. if you are just letting us know...then um thanks for the heads up

    Good Luck Guys,
    I think the 'sounding like youre in a tunnel' is a clear indication of a defective device, I have had that happen on a few different Android devices and an exchange fixed the problem.

    My first few hours on this device were horrid and experienced alot of the same issues as you (and totally bashed it on the VZW board) but after a day of letting the phone do its stuff, it was a clear that I made a good choice going to this device.

    I agree with the "The phone is not loud enough." part. My phone is one week old. Trying to compare the audio volume with other inc2 phones and hoping to exchange for a better one.
