4G: The HTC Evo 4G is the first phone on a U.S. network to boast 4G connectivity, making it capable of connecting to Sprint's WiMax network (where available) and enabling the device to reach peak download speeds of over 10 Mbps and peak upload speeds of 1 Mbps. In areas without 4G connectivity, the EVO will still operate on Sprint's 3G network. Of course, the DROID Incredible by HTC connects to Verizon's speedy 3G network.
Display: Like the HTC HD2 (T-Mobile), the HTC EVO 4G is equipped with a huge and gorgeous 4.3-inch touch sensitive 480x800 pixel display. The screen real estate makes the EVO 4G an ideal entertainment device -- perfect for watching movies, browsing the web and even reading eBooks. The DROID Incredible also has an impressive and sizable 3.7-inch touch-sensitive display with the same resolution as the EVO 4G, of course meaning that the Incredible has more pixels per square inch than the EVO 4G.
1GB on-board; 8GB microSD card pre-installed (support for up to 32GB microSD)
8GB on-board (expandable with microSD)
2.6" x 4.8" x 0.5"
2.3" x 4.63" x 0.47"
HDMI out: The DROID Incredible inspired some excitement when it was revealed that the device supports a cable (accessory sold separately) that allows it to output composite video. The accessory allows anything on the smartphone's display to be displayed on a TV or projector, including video. The EVO 4G offers the same capability, but in HD-quality (with an HDMI cable, also sold separately).
Mobile hotspot: The HTC EVO 4G can function as a 3G/4G mobile hotspot, providing the ability for up to 8 WiFi enabled devices to use the smartphone's internet connection simultaneously. The DROID Incredible does not have native mobile hotspot capabilities.
Design: Naturally, because of its significantly larger display, the HTC EVO 4G is a larger and slightly heavier device than the DROID Incredible. The HTC EVO 4G features a "kickstand" that allows it to easily stand on a tabletop, proving a handy method of hands-free viewing.
HD-quality video: Both phones are capable of recording HD-quality (720P) video.
Front-facing camera: Both devices are equipped with a powerful 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with bright dual LED flash. The EVO 4G, however, also boasts a 1.3-megapixel front facing camera that is expected to make the device capable of mobile video chat.
