Not bad for the price, poor battery life

cmares13, Ebay
9 May 2014
  • Summary: For the money, it's very decent, but has terrible battery life and not as user friendly as iPhone. Bought as temporary replacement after iPhone screen broke. It has a nice, large screen, but touch screen is too sensitive and it's very easy to accidentally end a call when phone is by cheek. Also had to purchase memory card before could use many of the features. Overall, it works, but I prefer the stability and battery life of iPhone 4.

Product came as described.

  • Summary: Came as described but the battery was at the end of its life. It is a work phone for the crews so they are able to leave it in the van and charge while on jobs so its not that big of a deal. I think they should test the bats before they ship them out.

I love my Thunderbolt. But it's a blast from the past now

  • Summary: Today I was looking over phones offered on Amazon and ran into the Thunderbolt under non-contract for $399. Let me preface all this by saying that I love my Thunderbolt and I was an early adopter, ordering it within hours of it becoming available. With that said, anybody who spends $399 so they can get an unlocked Verizon Thunderbolt has to be out of their mind!! They are available on EBAY for less than $50 easily. As for the phone?

If you want a temporary phone, look here. Anything else, check elsewhere.

  • Summary: It's a great temporary phone for the money. But, it has awful battery life, a slow OS, and is very bulky. Please buy for use of >6 months only. This is not a permanent smartphone replacement!

HTC Thunderbolt 4G LTE Android Phone

Amazon Customer, Amazon
4 November 2012
  • Summary: Older 4g LTE model on the market. Little glitchy at times. Good 8mp camera and fast speed on apps and web. Battery life horrible at only approximately 4-6 hours if used frequently. Expect 8-10 hours without frequent use. Still like the phone and ordered a replacement when my screen broke on my first HTC TB.

Bad phone, not worth your money

NickB, Phone Arena
25 May 2012
  • Excerpt: This phone is the worst phone I have ever owned. I've had it for about 16 months. It shuts off without warning, doesn't receive text messages half the time, doesn't send the texts sometimes even though it said it sent, and has an incredibly short battery life. On top of that it frequently sends text messages to random people! This phone has countless bugs that make communication (i.e. text messaging and phone calls) very difficult at times.

Good but dated.

jodog500, Ebay

  • Summary: I absolutely love the HTC thunderbolt. First it comes with 8gb internally which helps big after adding a 32gb sd card because you get around 30GB of space. I love the kickstand. I love the version of Slacker this phone has on it. 4.3 screen size with LTE to boot is great when watching videos on Netflix or Youtube. I dislike the poor battery life and recommend either always have a second battery or just shoot for the extended battery.

Thuderbolt CRASH..

itsbob, Phone Arena
19 July 2011
  • Excerpt: I bought this phone primarily for the HOTSPOT ability and along with it the 4G for when I travel. When it comes to network, tethering, and using the HOTSPOT this phone isn't much more than a paperweight. It's unstable on all Networks 3G or 4G but much worse on any 4G network that I've tried.
  • Pros: It's a Droid, apps are nice.
  • Cons: Network connection SUCKS!

Good screen and graphics but entirely too heavbulky for an every day phone.

murfunit, Ebay
6 July 2011
  • Summary: The phone is large and heavy. Screen resolution is good, and the glass screen makes for a responsive touch screen. The one I bought arrived without a SIM card so I can't test battery life or connection. But based on what I see so far, the unit will be a beast to carry around and use on a daily basis. Definitely not a handset for someone looking for an easy to handle phone.
