HTC ThunderBolt - Pocket-lint

 

The ThunderBolt may not quite embody the ultimate 4G phone, lacking the dual-core chops to really go to town, but it's a solid, sensible handset that

4G, HTC Sense, camera performance, call quality, lightening fast data connection

Gets hot, battery life, outdated version of Android, doesn't really have the display or the power to compete with the best high-end handsets

Is the ThunderBolt’s insatiable appetite for energy a deal-breaker? Probably not. Power users will get used to carrying the chunky charger around or investing a second battery, and there’s even a certain kudos to be earned from any phone capable of...

A jaw-dropping 4G lightning strike blasting a path to the future

The HTC Thunderbolt is the first 4G phone on Verizon’s new 4G LTE network – the same next-gen technology Vodafone, Orange, T-Mobile and O2 are aiming to bring to the UK later this year. And if the Th

HTC Thunderbolt vs. iPhone 4

 

I know many people who want to buy an iPhone. Most of them don't even know what the iPhone really is and what specs and features it has, they just want it because there is an opinion nowadays that having an iPhone is cool.

Both smartphones have their pros and cons. The HTC Thunderbolt has a larger display, a better camera and many other advantages, and the iPhone 4 seems to be made better and has a longer battery life. However, the HTC Thunderbolt is much cheaper than...

HTC Thunderbolt vs. iPhone 4 vs. Motorola Droid 3: Web Browsing Test

 

Comparing web browsing in smartphones is perhaps the best way to compare their Operating Systems. Android is considered to be the best and the most popular OS nowadays, followed by iOS, and the phonearena guys decided to compare their performance by...

HTC Thunderbolt Review (Verizon)

 

In a certain period of time each manufacturer has a special device that is distinguished from others. That model is called flagship, and now its the right time to meet you with the HTC's current flagship that is also one of the first devices supporting...

4.3-inch touchscreen ; 1GHz processor ; Memory ; 8MP camera ; 4G LTE support ; HTC Sense 2.0 UI

Bulkiness ; Battery ; Android 2.2 ; Incongruity of kickstand and microUSB port

The HTC Thunderbolt review showed it is quite attractive device and it is not accidental Verizon decided to get its hands to this perfect handset. Regardless all the problems occurred after its launch the HTC Thunderbolt undoubtedly can be considered...

HTC Thunderbolt smartphone (preview)

 

The HTC Thunderbolt sports a 4.3in Super LCD screen, a front-facing video camera and a kickstand

4.3in Super LCD screen, 8-megapixel camera, decent performance

In the absence of a national LTE network we're unlikely to see it in Australia (at least in its current form)

HTC Thunderbolt smartphone

 

Probably the worst-kept secret phone of CES, the HTC Thunderbolt is finally official on the 4G LTE network of US telco Verizon.

4.3in Super LCD screen, 8-megapixel camera, decent performance

In the absence of a national LTE network we're unlikely to see it in Australia (at least in its current form)

The HTC Thunderbolt is equipped with a 4.3in Super LCD screen. It feels really well-constructed and solid in hand while maintaining the slick aesthetic we've come to expect of HTC phones.

HTC Thunderbolt Review: The First Verizon 4G LTE Smartphone

 

So I have a confession to make - I'm late on this one. Way late. I managed to catch strep throat, came down with a high fever, then a sinus infection, and as a result missed my goal of having everything Verizon 4G LTE - including the HTC Thunderbolt -...
