HTC ThunderBolt is the first LTE-equipped smartphone and looks to be Verizon’s phone model to be up on their banners.
-TFT LCD 4.3-inch display
-WVGA touch screen
This phone has a capability to set a new standard onto high end smartphones. HTC didn’t use AM-OLED screens because of having problems with it. Instead, HTC created a new tech wherin it can outdo AM-OLED screens. TFT’s offer better color saturation and is more relaxing to the eyes compared to AM-OLED phones that focuses on contrast and saturation.
The Large screen will take up a lot of space in your pocket, but it’s ideal to watch videos, read documents on and other stuff you can do with it. If you get tired of holding it up, it has a kickstand located at the back.
-Android OS 2.2 (Froyo)
-1 GHz Snapdragon processor
-768MB of RAM
-8 GB internal storage
-MicroSD card slot WITH 32 GB card
Although most of the hardware and software are already incorporated with other smart phones, HTC doesn’t see why they shouldn’t do the same. These are high end specifications. But anticipate other phone companies to release better specification as the smart phone market advances.
You can install Flash 10.2 which allows you to have better performance in watching videos. But don’t be expecting to watch 720p videos.
-8Megapixel camera (WOW!)
-1.3 megapixel Video Calls (front face camera)
-Skype VoIP app.
-WiFi B/G/N and Mobile Hotspot
4G networks can do download speeds of 5-12 Mbps and 2-5 Mbps upload speeds. 3G networks perform lower of course. You can browse faster than normal and gain a local internet type of speed.
If you love to share, HTC Thunderbolt can allow you to share connections via Wi-Fi and transforming you into a Wi-Fi hotspot.
If you’re a Facebook addict, you can browse at notebook speed with the phone.
As I’ve been reading information, there are several users that reported it can’t last 5 hours because of the applications. There was a report on HTC Thunderbolt that it can’t manage the battery life.
