Pros/coins of the Dinc 4G?
So my fiancee is looking at her options for a new phone next week and this phone is in the lead. I'd like to give her some honest feedback and reviews. She currently has the Dinc2 and has had no complaints, other than that she wants ICS and the "promise" to get it isn't good enough.
Reasons she likes her current phone (and therefore the Dinc 4G):
- small form factor
- made by HTC and runs Sense (she's OK with stock on my Gnex but has grown accustomed to Sense from all Dinc2 and Eris)
- fairly new on the market when purchased
- physical buttons, but she could do without
So, any other thoughts for or against this decision? I've seen some that say this phone is really only a Dinc 2.5 and maybe shed be better off with something like the SGIII.
What do you think?

I like the phone but there are some things I don't like. Battery life is good. Very little lag. Connections are solid. Build quality good. Display very nice. GPS works very well.
The things I don't like are related to ics. The damn menu button is an eyesore and a huge design flaw. The way it nags about WiFi is unwelcome. I don't like how it handles the sd card, and especially the inability toove apps to sd. I've had some problem connecting with bluetooth to various devices.
While I wait for root, the ability to disable bloat is welcome. I've had it on a trip, and it did everything I needed it to do, plus it was small in the pocket.
Overall I'd give it a 90%.

Re: Pros/coins of the Dinc 4G?
I agree with everything dezignstuff said, except I haven't had any bluetooth connection issues. That said, every phone has its flaws, and IMO these are nit picky things that aren't that big of a deal. I had a lot bigger complaints about the Rezound, and about the OG Dinc after the GB "upgrade".
Overall, I couldn't be happier and would definitely recommend this phone to anyone who liked the OG Dinc or the Dinc 2.
HTC has a fix (sort of) for the menu button issue and I expect they'll push it to us at some point, hopefully sooner than later.
