Blazing fast, easy to use AT&T phone!

Posted on: April 23rd, 2012 by Anthony Villa-Garcia

I have had the HTC Vivid for over a month now and can conclude that AT&T 4G-LTE is faster than Verizon in Tampa, Florida. I have achieved 37mbps, whereas my friend's Thunderbolt (Verizon) maxed at 20mbps, on a good day. I have averaged low 20'smbps. The HTC GUI is easy to use, and has beautiful widgets and transitions. I would like more of ICS present, but it's ok. The screen resolution is great, and the longer screen does not bother me. I believe 4.3 inches is the sweet spot. I can reach every spot of the screen without stretching, unlike my dad's Infuse 4g 4.5inch screen. The screen doesn't get too bright, but it's fine in the light. The call quality is not loud, but I hold a clear call in dead spots. The speakers on the phone don't get very loud, which is very annoying. However, the beats audio integrated software is nice and brings out the low end, while making the acoustics more clear and crisp. Battery life lasts me all day with heavy use (gaming), however I do disconnect to the network as often as I can to conserve. Should last anyone a day with moderate use. The storage of the device is odd, so I'd recommend a SD card (the phone has 16 internal). I have to move apps between phone and internal storage, the same thing, to allow download of apps. I also dislike how MOG music app is forced on my phone, it's a good idea, but just not for me. Built in FM has become a key highlight for me because I use it a lot. All in all, the HTC Vivid is blazing quick, easy to use, gets through the day, looks beautiful, and only has a few kinks that make it among the top 5 phones, imo, of all time.

This phone is amazing!

Posted on: April 11th, 2012 by J Litz Van

I'm not sure what I can say about this phone. If you DON'T update the software, this phone is PERFECT!!! With the update, it's flawed. The hardware just makes this phone feel like no other. The software (original) is perfect. There are a lot of bugs with the update though. All & all, This phone is amazing!!!

Great Phone, I really like Sense and ICS

Posted on: April 10th, 2012 by Anonymous

This phone is packed to the gills with all an android phone can have and the muscle to handle it. I really like this phone and wish people would quit downing every phone cause of an update or that the update knocked out a feature, if you really want that feature back I am sure there is an app for that. Great Phone, no problems with it so I I'll keep it!

Great dual core Android!

Posted on: April 1st, 2012 by Jade Hart

This phone is overall one of the most feature packed and well built $100 phones on AT&T. It comes with a sleek and sturdy design, decently sized battery, bright vivid 4.5 inch Qhd display, and fast LTE connectivity. The Phone is very snappy thanks to its dual core snapdragon processor. When mashed up together all of these features create a pretty awesome device and its the first device in the US to get an ICS over the air update.

Great smartphone for Android users!

Posted on: April 1st, 2012 by Anonymous

The HTC Vivid has everything the current smartphone user would need. A dual core processor, a decent 8 megapixel camera, a huge 4.5 screen with decent resolution, AT&T's HSPA+/LTE and reasonably priced at $100. A great pickup/steal.

ICS Kills the Bluetooth Dialing - Great Phone though

Posted on: March 24th, 2012 by Jarvis Morrison

ICS killed my BlueTooth Dialing. After several emails and try this and that HTC says to try a dialer from Google Play Store to fix the BT dialing issue on my Vivid. All the ones I've tried give sub-par performances compared to the original Dialer. HTC say they cannot provide the old Voice Dialer that came with GB. I saw on line that Google Voice works if your phone has no manufacturers overlay. Mine only works some of the time. I am past my trial on this phone. Really wish I waited now and researched the problems. No Google Voice search and No BT Dialer. Before ICS I liked this phone better than the Skyrocket, now neither phone has Bluetooth dialing available. Rant over.

great phone. The display could of been 720p. battery life was pretty good but could of been better skip the skyrocket and get this.

Posted on: March 20th, 2012 by Joey Kiggins

love the 4g lte. Good reception. Okay display but could of been a 720p display and better brightness, but at least its not four eighty by eight hundred. design is great love the metal back but could of been all metal. Android is great but needs ice cream sandwich and sense 4.0. Best 4g lte phone on att and gets under estimated tell you try it.
