    Both phones are fantastic. No doubt about it. I switched and the wife kept her Droid, so I've been able to do a lot of comparisons side by side for performance and all that stuff.

    A couple pluses for the Incredible:
    - Significantly better camera (my main reason to switch, no more point and shoot when I go places)
    - Faster page rendering on the web
    - More accurate touchscreen
    - Better form factor for pocketing in work slacks

    Pluses for the Droid:
    - Obviously the keyboard is a big one
    - Better screen for small text (web pages especially)
    - A little better build quality w/ metal accents (but at the cost of weight)
    - Vanilla Android (I prefer this)
    - Battery Life is better
    - Seems to get better reception
    - Clearer/Louder speakerphone

    So in all, the Droid has a few more pluses in my side by side comparisons, but the things that the Incredible does better are more important to me so that's why I switched. Neither phone will be obsolete anytime soon and both are fantastic Android offerings. Just pick the features that are most important to you and go from there.

    Thanks for the review, mine is on the way. The Incredibles are sold out at the VZW stores in my area.

    Got my Incredible, so far so good, i really like it. But, battery life seems a little less. I have only given it a day of full and heavy use, so still learning about how it will be.

    I am seeing some work-arounds regarding battery life such as
    'advanced task killer,' keeping wifi off, etc.
