for audio Not too great.  have a hard time driving AKG701.  Still a pretty good phone, especially rooted.  It needs better battery life though.

The HTC Desire HD seems to measure pretty well with respect to sound quality (See: http://www.gsmarena.com/htc_desire_hd-review-534p5.php ), but I haven't been able to find any equivalent info regarding the Incredible.

 

At this point though, the real question is how will the Thunderbolt (out in a few days) sound.  Is it too much to hope for that a Verizon LTE android handset might have audio quality better than/equal to an iphone4?

Get a Fascinate if you're  on Verizon.  I keep saying this:  the SGS line has exceptional audio hardware for a phone or even a dedicated MP3 player.  It beats the snot out of an iPhone or iPod.

I was somewhat tempted by the Galaxy initially, but per gsmarena, you're slightly off on your claim that the Fascinate has superior audio quality.  It measures well (roughly equivalent to the iPhone 3g based on my recollection), but the iPhone 4 still beats it: http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_i9000_galaxy_s_vs_apple_iphone_4-review-500p6.php

 

Also, Verizon only offers a gimped version of the Galaxy.  For whatever reason, the Fascinate has less ram than the other Galaxy S handsets, and it comes with a default Bing search instead of Google (also contrary to the other Galaxy phones).  I won't support this sort of nonsense.

 

Unfortunately, it was announced today that the Thunderbolt has been delayed to March 4, or possibly March 10 for unknown reasons.  I guess I have a bit more time to consider my decision.  If I do go with an android phone though, it will definitely be one with LTE data speeds.  Samsung and Motorola LTE phones are also due out in the next couple of months.  IMO, the galaxy series is dead.

 

The only reason I would still consider an iPhone is for the sound quality (and netflix).  iPhone five will hit in the summer, but reports to date are that it will NOT support LTE.  /boggle
