It's worth the thickness and weight!

I went from the Droid Charge to the HTC thunderbolt and I have to say, the Thunderbolt screen is no match for the super amoled Charge screen. However, The layout, the features, and the camera quality make the thunderbolt worth it. Average battery for a 4G android device. It lasts about a day

The thunderbolt is my favorite phone of the ones I have owned. The support for updates from HTC is great. The phone improved when I received the gingerbread update. Battery life is excellent now that I have the extended battery. It does a lot of the things I want in a smartphone really well. Overall a great device.

HTC Thunderbolt Should Be In The Top 5!

Posted on: March 27th, 2012 by Caleb Minor

The reason why the HTC Thunderbolt should be in the top five is because first of all it was the first ever 4g phone produced by Verizon it has a great camera, its calls never drop and i know that because i spend much time in woods in Wisconsin and it feels great in the hands. Not to big or small of a screen perfect for texting and reading emails, watching videos, surfing the web, etc. The battery could be better but overall this is a great phone and does not deserve to be disrespected as a phone as great as it is!
