HTC ThunderBolt 4G LTE Android Phone (Verizon Wireless)
I have been using HTC Thunderbolt since April 2011 and it is definitely THE King of Smartphones. I had a choice between Thunderbolt and iPhone and finally decided to purchase the Thunderbolt running on the Verizon 4GLTE network. Just a quick note here, Verizon’s 4GLTE network is definitely super fast and data transfer, videos, music streaming is smooth with absolutely no buffering. Here are some of the Pros and Cons of HTC Thunderbolt
1) Screen Size: 4.3 inch screen is neither too big nor too small and reading or making notes on the phone is quite easy without straining your eyes. Remember, you can zoom in and zoom out on any article and it auto fits itself to the screen. I find this feature very helpful (This is not possible on my Galaxy Tab, where if you zoom, you then have to scroll left, right, up and down to view the article). Screen size is also perfect for making video calls using Skype, Tango, Google Hangouts !!!
2)4G LTE: This was…
A very powerful 1st gen 4G phone
I have been using my HTC Thunderbolt for about a year now, and I have found it to be a very powerful phone with flaws that are inherent to a 1st gen product (with regard to 4G LTE).
Screen size AND aspect ratio – the 4.3″ screen was big when this phone came out one year ago in July ’11. At the time, I thought this was going to be the physical limit on smartphone screen sizes – boy was I wrong haha The resolution is 800×480, which is low by today’s standard, but this was the highest resolution available on the android side at the time of this phone’s launch. One thing I’ve come to love is the screen’s aspect ratio. This phone has very thin bezels framing the screen. I simply love this. Compared to the a same size 4.3″ 720P phone (ex. Rezound), the Thunderbolt’s screen is noticeably wider and negligibly shorter. This makes for a much more useful screen in everyday use, such as Google map, browsing, etc. The Rezound’s 720P screen, which by the way is gorgeous…
as described. great product.
