Horrible Battery, Battery Extention Pack is Embarrassing

yeskalade, Amazon

  • Summary: This phone has horrible battery life. I would choose a Droid X over this phone if you're looking at a cheap phone. The only thing I liked about it was the kickstand. I bought an battery extension pack for it and I wouldn't even use it anymore because it was unsightly and embarrassing to pull out of my pocket. It was a great incentive for me to purchase a new phone.

Worked for an hour.

  • Summary: When I received this phone I charged it for about an hour because it was low on battery. The port was loose and the charged didn't fit correctly. After putting my sims card in and adding a few contacts, it had just shut off. It won't turn back on, even after trying to recharge, pulling the battery, and the recommend hard reset. I wouldn't recommend this if you want something that's going to last you.

2 years of decreasing satisfaction

  • Excerpt: When I first got this phone I was extremely excited with it being my first smart phone. However, not too long afterward I began experiencing major issues such as very poor battery and lack of Internet connection even with full bars. After the update to ics the phone became painstakingly slow and borderline unusable. I did a factory reset, no help. I bought a brand new battery, still have terrible battery life.

Loses thunder pretty quickly

  • Summary: It's a very powerful phone in its capabilities and versatility but the battery life is horrendous and lately it's been crashing on me a lot. I picked it up as a replacement to my HTC Incredibel 2 (which I loved) and this I find to be a lesser product in their line up. I like HTC, just no the Thudnerbolt. Consider your options, but it will suffice if need be. Just keep a charger on you always. The extended battery isn't worth it - so bulky it's obnixious.

Hit or miss with this phone.

  • Summary: Two of my friends have this phone, one works perfectly and one is useless. My thunderbolt likes to randomly turn off or restart itself. It frequently splices old text messages that have been deleted months ago into the middle of current text messages. I also regularly do not receive text messages. This can last from an hour up to days. I upgraded to this from my previous HTC phone that I loved and am pretty disappointed.
  • Pros: Runs very fast on 4G.
  • Cons: Battery life, preloaded apps, phone malfunctions very often, takes forever to turn on, doesn't receive text messages.

Overall terrible phone compared to others

Rangerfan537816, CNET

  • Summary: This is my first phone and it is not one to remember. I seem to have a problem with it more ofter than I should, but various improvements I've made to it have helped. Compared to other phones it's horrid, but it is a good smartphone with cool features and customizable options. Cant use 4G since battery life is terrible, so really it was just like buying a normal 3G phone. It's also a very heavy phone and doesn't fit well in my pocket.
  • Pros: Nice screen, Very customizable
  • Cons: Battery life terrible, cant use 4G since it's so bad, Freezes every once and awhile, Heats up after little use, Heavy
