hmm... Why am I choosing the Nexus One over the Incredible? I'm not. You wanna know why?
Because Google DROPPED THE BALL.
I have not used the Incredible but I'm sure it has improvements over the Nexus One, it was released later. This is a natural process, as time passes phones become more advanced and problems are solved. I love my Nexus one and have no regrets about purchasing it. I'm sure after the Incredible has been out for awhile problems will arise and then HTC will improve upon them as well. If I had a choice between both phones right now I would still take the Nexus One because of Google's direct involvement, not taking away anything from HTC. HTC is the best phone maker in the world in my opinion and choosing either one of these phones is an excellent decision.
Just purchased the Incredible and for me I like it better than the N1. I don't see why people are bashing the look of the Incredible but oh well, I like it. Will be selling my N1 so hit me up if you want to buy it lol...
In addition to the reasons that have probably been beaten to death on this forum, it seems pretty clear that the N1 has a much longer battery life. I haven't had the pleasure of using an N1 myself, but I am pretty sure it's true. Also, there is some weird signal strength issues on the DInc. Mine almost always shows 1 or 2 bars. The jury is still out as to whether it really is having signal issues or it's a problem with the software not calibrating the bars correctly. If it is some sort of hardware issue, that would be a pretty big knock on the DInc. That being said, I've had no issues with the network, downloads seem fast.
It's cool to see all the iPhone owners ooh and ah over the bad ass screen, speedy response, multiple home screens, FLASH on websites, live wallpaper, weather widgets, etc.
My roomate just ordered an N1 for T-mobile. I'm looking forward to playing around with it and really comparing the two.
