Review: Verizon HTC Thunderbolt 4G Smartphone

PCWorld: Review – Verizon HTC Thunderbolt 4G Smartphone

The Thunderbolt is the first smartphone available that takes advantage of Verizon’s very high-speed 4G LTE network. An Android phone with a 4.3-inch screen, it costs $250 with a two-year contract.

“The HTC Thunderbolt, which went on sale March 17, is the first phone available in the US that can connect to Verizon’s lightning fast 4G LTE network. That alone makes the Thunderbolt ($250 with new 2-year contract) a considerable piece of hardware, especially for users who routinely run high-bandwidth apps like video chat, online gaming and high-def video streaming. Network speed aside, I found the phone itself to be another solid addition to the HTC’s mostly-impressive family of smartphones, albeit one with a few shortcomings.

The Thunderbolt definitely feels well-built and sturdy in your hand. However, for someone coming from a smaller phone, the 5.78-ounce Thunderbolt, with its 4.8 by 2.6 by .52-inch frame, can feel like a monster in comparison.”
