HTC Thunderbolt Hands-on Gallery

Well, there it is.  The HTC Thunderbolt is finally available and while I’ve had zero time to really play with it, you can’t deny its beauty.  Here is a quick gallery to show off those magical curves and that big shiny 4.3″ Super LCD screen.

Everyone loving their new phone?

    How come i cant watch movies on my HTC Thunderbolt?????

    Love it, but disappointed in battery life until I got “4G Switch” app which turns off 4G LTE network and dramatically improves battery life until such time as you need/want it – then just switch back to 4G. I use it when I know I’ll be needing the phone all day

    Against all reports I download ATK (advanced task killer) it has extended my battery life quite a bit. Yesterday it dropped from 80% to 15% in 3 hours of non use. Today after the installation of ATK and a full charge its holding up quite well.
    Will call my local verizon to see if they have any extended batteries–
    Hate to be on the fence about keeping this- I love everything else about the phone.

    I absolutely love this phone! Coming from an OG Droid, this this thing is much better. Faster, lighter, bigger screen. HTC Sense is great, much better that stock Android!

    Arrrrg! I just rebooted the phone and now instead of 33% it is showing 19% … guess the meter was stuck. Well we will see I will post about the big battery after I do a full charge on it. At 2750 mah it should last at least all day. Cheers!

      Extended battery is Amazing! Started using the phone at 8am and it is 11pm and I have hammered this thing all day and it is at 50% right now. Tremendous!!!!

    As a long time user of the Apple iPhone (3GS and 4), I can say that I have been truly surprised at the speed and functionaly of the HTC Thunderbolt. My only fear now is that I am beginning to like it better than my iPhone (I could very well lose sleep over that). The speed has truly been amazing. In my area, I can acheive the 4G LTE network practically everywhere I have tested it so far (in the 40 mile route I travel daily). In my experiences, I have acheived 13Mbps Down and 6Mbps Up. Of course, this could drop as more and more people begin using this network. For now, I will enjoy it…and perhaps use this device as my primary .

    Got it for $199.00 on Verizon web site after the clerk in the store told me it was $249.99 plus a $20.00 early activation fee. Should have it in my hands by Saturday afternoon. I can’t wait!

    The dual-core LTE devices will have better battery life if you believe the data. IA single core running at higher clock rates and all its associated circuitry to handle the web pages, data, etc. A dual core will run at lower clock rates to accomplish the same thing and all the other circuity will follow.

    Not sure how true this is but Nvidia has a white paper on it so it seems credible. I am waiting for the dual core LTE as this thing is lucky to get 6 hours.

    Does anyone have advice – I ordered the Thunderbolt and just realized today that there is no 4G coverage in Connecticut and my area. It is fedex’d and to be delivered on Monday – my question is: can I get out of this or am I tied to the deal? I know there may be a re-stock fee whic I can deal with but will Verizon let me get out of this now that I have ordered?

      Merely deny the package and FedEx will send it back. Then cancel order. No activation, no opening of box, no restock fee. just a pain in the a$$

        Pain in the a$$ I agree – I really want this phone but they don’t plan on 4G in my area until next year or so. Too bad – I’ll just keep my origional Droid for now and suck it up I guess. I will just refuse the package Monday – bummer :(
