Released two years apart, the BlackBerry Storm 2 9520 and the HTC Droid Incredible 2 are two performance and advanced smartphones which come with nice designs and plenty of useful features. Let’s find out which one is the better device so that you can make a decision.
In terms of design, these two smartphones are good looking devices made of quality materials. The Storm 2 is smaller and heavier than the Droid Incredible 2 measuring 112.5 x 62.2 x 14mm and weighing 160 grams. The Incredible 2 measures 120.7 x 64 x 12.2 mm and weighs 135 grams. Moreover, both devices come with touchscreens able to display sharp and crisp images. The Incredible 2 features a gorgeous 4-inch S-LCD touchscreen with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels while the Storm 2 comes with a 3.25-inch TFT touchscreen with a lower resolution of only 360 x 480 pixels. So, it’s obvious that the HTC smartphone is the better option when it comes to display quality.
When it comes to the hardware department, these two devices are equipped with pretty powerful processors able to run the operating system and the various features available. However, the Incredible 2 stands out from the crowd with a 1GHz processor with 768MB of RAM, being faster than the BlackBerry smartphone. Regarding the operating system you should know that both phones offer well featured OS. The Storm 2 runs on BlackBerry OS and is able to provide advanced features including BlackBerry Maps, document editor, organizer and text and multimedia messaging. The Incredible 2 runs on Android 2.2 (upgradable to superior versions) with the HTC Sense UI. This smartphone is able to offer SNS integration, organizer, document viewer and voice memo/dial/commands.
Another important smartphone feature that needs to be compared is the camera. From this point of view on the HTC Droid Incredible 2 you have the possibility to find two cameras: a 1.3MP front-facing camera designed for video calls and an 8MP rear camera equipped with dual-LED flash and 720p HD video recording capabilities. The Storm 2 comes only with a 3.15MP camera equipped with LED flash, geo-tagging and video recording capabilities. The smartphones also offer a nice media player able to support various audio and video file formats, but the Incredible 2 also features built-in FM radio.
You will also find on these smartphones various connectivity options including A-GPS, HTML, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and 3G. The Incredible 2 has a little advantage being able to provide Adobe Flash and Wi-Fi hotspot support. The batteries available on these devices provide between 6 and 6.3 hours of talk time. Bottom line, both phones are great devices, but the Incredible 2 is definitely the winner of the comparison.
