Let me start off with saying “Ooohhh Lala!” As a recent MT4G owner I was hesitant to make the switch to another phone because I had no complaints with the device I currently had. However with the whole AT&T/T-Mobile buyout I decided to explore other options.
My boyfriend and I were out window shopping at a local BestBuy and we found the Verizon HTC Thunderbolt in all it’s glory on display. At first I was skeptical because of the large size, heavier weight and somewhat masculine features, for some reason it caught my eye. Needless to say it was very different than my plum purple MT4G but the more I held it and looked it over- the more I liked it.
I made the decision to go to Verizon because of the service coverage in my area compared to Sprint (the HTC Evo was another option). I sadly laid my MT4G to rest and purchased my Thunderbolt last night. I have never been so happy! Aside from killing my battery twice in 24 hours, I can’t seem to put the phone down. In this case “bigger is better”- in the screen size I mean
Usually I am a physical keyboard type of gal- but I find no faults using the Thunderbolts large display. I am also very impressed with the speeds of the 4G LTE service, OMG, that’s all I have to say. I was completely blown away to find that my cell phone was destroying my home network connection. Quite impressive!
Even though this phone is not yet rooted (oh CM7 how I miss you) it seems to run very smooth and effortlessly with all of the apps I currently installed. The super LCD display shows off my girly wallpapers beautifully and the sound quality is great. The kickstand on the back is so useful (EVO owners can relate- I’m sure) and is perfect for my desk at work, giving me full visual access without having to lean over or pick up my phone every 5 minutes.
Well okay gals, time for me to go play some more. I hope anyone else with a Thunderbolt is having a positive experience like me. Feel free to share your comments or stories below- I would love to hear them!
