Eh...next time I'll get an iPhone

By 

from White Plains, NY

Comments about HTC Thunderbolt (8 GB) Smartphone:

The reason I got this phone was because it offered a feature not on the iPhone at the time--the ability to speak responses to emails, texts, etc.
Well, that doesn't work half the time.
I have small hands, this is a huge beast. And the battery life is A W F U L. And on this phone anyway, it NEVER connects to 4G and barely if ever connects to 3G so if wifi isn't available, it's just dead weight in my pocket. Can't really blame the phone for everything--what I've learned is that I really don't need a phone that's all that smart. Or big. SKIP IT.

Performance
Bad battery life, have trouble opening downloads.

Great Phone!!

By 

from USA

Comments about HTC Thunderbolt (8 GB) Smartphone:

I wanted this phone from when I first say it being advertised. I was attracted to the big screen and the stand in the back of the phone. The stand makes it extremely easy to watch tv or movies on the phone without having to hold it. The video quality of fantastic. It is very clear and crisp for being a phone. I can browse the internet very easily and the pages load quickly. The phone is a little bulkier and heavier than I like but for the great quality in sound and picture I don't mind. I actually use the phones camera more than my digital.

Performance
Excellent.

Voice Quality
Very clear.

Battery Life
Lasts through the day.

Durability
Has been dropped countless time and still working perfectly.

Ease of Use
Very easy to use.

Design
It is a little bulky and heavy.

Decent entry-level LTE android phone with poor battery life

By 

from Plano, TX

Comments about HTC Thunderbolt (8 GB) Smartphone:

The bolt was my first LTE phone. Verizon LTE is lightning fast and in certain areas would rival my Verizon fios at home. However, the phone would drain 1% battery life for 1 min of LTE. Additionally, I have had problems keeping a steady LTE connection. The 3g stays on fine all the time.

The phone functions well as a smart phone. The call quality is good. The phone is fairly easy to use if you take time to play with it. I didn't need to use a manual or look for help online.

Manufacturer Cellphone Disaster

Comments about HTC Thunderbolt (8 GB) Smartphone:

Item advertised as better than Ice Cream....unfortunately they forgot to say it was melted Ice Cream

Performance
Can't really blame the product. This poor piece of equipment was ruined by the mfg's failed software and failed software updates. Someday they may get it right, Until they do my suggestion is to stay away from any HTC cellular phone product..

Voice Quality
Voice quality is very good

Battery Life
Battery life is average

Durability
Phone body is very durible if you add an Otter case

Ease of Use
Phone operational functions very easy to use

Design
Phone has an excellent design but poor screen color

Great phone - horrible battery life

By 

from Joliet, IL

Comments about HTC Thunderbolt (8 GB) Smartphone:

When I got the phone I got a 32gb memory card for it. The camera is great! It is real easy to use, but the battery life is horrible. I often find myself plugging it in during the day. I actually bought a spare battery for it, which thankfully is easy to replace.
