HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE: Smaller Is Better

HTC's newest Droid runs on AT&T's LTE network, where it's available. In a market of swelling phone sizes, the Droid Incredible 4G LTE seems practically petite with its 4-inch super LCD quarter-high-definition (qHD) display. Verizon calls the phone "pocket-friendly."

Samsung Galaxy S III: iPhone Rival

While it has LTE, Sense 4.0 and many camera features in common with the HTC handsets, the Galaxy S III also has much that sets it apart.

Samsung Galaxy S III: Intuitive

The Samsung has an 8MP camera, but the front camera is the one to note: It watches users, to anticipate their needs. For example, knowing a user is looking at it, reading a long email, for example, it won't allow the screen to go dark, despite going untouched for a length of time that would usually trigger this function.
