Default A Loud Rumble - Engadget Reviews The Thunderbolt

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='' target='_blank'></a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"At a quick glance, without any background information, your eyes might tell you that the HTC Thunderbolt is little more than a Verizon remake of Sprint's EVO 4G and AT&amp;T's Inspire 4G. After all -- like its contemporaries -- the Thunderbolt features a spacious 4.3-inch WVGA display, 8 megapixel camera, and dual-LED flash. In reality, though, the Thunderbolt is something more: from the Inspire, it borrows a better, crisper display with a wider viewing angle and a newer-generation (though still single-core) Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. From the EVO 4G, meanwhile, it borrows a cool integrated kickstand and the addition of a second "4G" radio, making this a spec Frankenstein of sorts -- the best of both worlds. Of course, instead of Sprint's WiMAX for that 4G radio, the Thunderbolt grants you access to Verizon's LTE network -- a network so fresh, it still has that new-network smell. There's a lot of horsepower here. In other words, the Thunderbolt has a very real opportunity to be the finest 4.3-inch device HTC has ever made -- for the moment, anyway. Let's see how it fares."</em></p><p><em><img src="" /></em></p><p>Not a bad little contender for "Best Android Smartphone" can be found in the HTC Thunderbolt. The only problem with crowning it as such is that these days, the new Best Smartphone comes out every few weeks it seems! A fun review by Engadget.</p>
