Operating system: Both devices are powered by Google's Android operating system. The Motorola DROID 2 has a slightly modified version of the standard Google Experience that adds a few nice enhancements, including a number of widgets such as a social networking and visual bookmarking widget. The HTC DROID Incredible has HTC’s custom user interface called Sense. HTC’s Sense interface offers a number of advanced customization options for the Incredible, including custom widgets, and the ability to change the layout and icons on the home screens depending on what the user is doing. Of course, the choice between the two interfaces all comes down to personal preference, and many users will likely prefer one interface over the other.
Keyboard: While the DROID Incredible offers a great virtual (on-screen) QWERTY keyboard, the DROID 2 provides a comfortable (and much-improved over its predecessor) slide-out physical QWERTY keyboard in addition to a virtual QWERTY. Users preferring a physical keyboard may be easily swayed into choosing the DROID 2.
Storage Space: Right out of the box, the DROID 2 offers a total of 16GB of storage space (8GB on-board, in addition to a pre-installed 8GB microSD card), while the DROID Incredible offers a total of 10GB of storage space (8GB on-board plus an included 2GB microSD card). Of course, this means that substantially more storage space is available on the DROID 2 than on the DROID Incredble without the purchase of a higher capacity microSD card.
Camera: Both devices are equipped with great cameras with autofocus and on-board dual LED flashes. The DROID Incredible has an 8-megapixel camera that is capable of recording video at 720P. The DROID 2 has a 5-megapixel camera, and while the device can still record great video, it is limited to DVD-quality video. The difference in megapixels really only comes into play when printing out large photos, and is not necessarily a measure of camera quality.
Battery life: The Motorola DROID 2 boasts relatively impressive battery life, while the DROID Incredible by HTC offers still competitive but comparably less battery life, limiting talk and standby time.
Design: Because of the presence of the slide-out physical QWERTY keyboard, the Motorola DROID 2 is a noticeable heavier and thicker device than the DROID Incredible by HTC. Both devices, however, are compact and will fit comfortably in most any pocket or purse.
