"Blazing fast, easy to use AT&T phone!"

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.

HTC Vivid Video Review Part 1
AT&T's hard at work rolling out their 4G LTE network, and with a new network comes phones that take advantage of said technology.  One of AT&T's two initial 4G LTE devices is the HTC Vivid , and it's available now for $199.99.  Packing a 1.2 GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, it rocks a 4.5-inch qHD display, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording capabilities, a front-facing camera, 1,620 mAh battery, and Android 2.3.4 with HTC Sense 3.0.  It's a... more...
