The Apple iPhone 4 can be compared to the HTC Droid Incredible, an Android based smartphone that has all the salient features of the OS, and some good UI work by HTC. It is an interesting comparison, but one that will end with a clear winner.
The Droid Incredible was released in April 2010 and the iPhone 4 was released in June 2010, so there has been enough time for the world to use both these smartphones extensively and offer accurate reviews of both these devices. HTC has subsequently released many new models since the Droid Incredible, so if you are not happy with this device, then there are plenty more choices for you.

The areas where the Droid Incredible is superior is the hardware specs, like screen size and camera, but in the more important aspects, like the operating system and the screen clarity, it falls behind. The HTC is also running an old version of Android, which also works against it. The processor specs for both the handsets are the same, but the better OS of the iPhone and the non-support for flash based content do make it faster at most tasks.
The Droid Incredible was well received for its first few weeks, but it soon became obsolete since many new and superior Android products came up. There is nothing unusually great about it, and there really is no single feature that really stands out on it. With all these said and done, the Apple iPhone 4 is the clear winner over the HTC Droid Incredible.
