Just for fun I made sure this phone didn't suffer from any grip related signal loss. The phone didn't lose 1 single bar nor did it go any slower in a speed test. GPS launch time was really quick, and WiFi never lost connection even once. This phone is certainly running on full power in many ways, and while the visual and in-hand feel could be improved, it's still a pretty beastly phone.
This phone has been pretty nice to me. While I did not enjoy it any more than the Droid charge, it has its advantages. The Revolution has quite a nice screen, was very responsive, and although it was much brighter than the Charge, its colors look very washed out in comparison to the Charge's.
Battery life with this phone performs better than the Thunderbolt, but not as good as the Droid Charge. As far as performance goes, the Revolution gives speeds closer to T-Mobile's 4G than Verizon's. I cannot figure out why, but the phone never produced anything more than 15Mbps speeds, so this leaves me with a slightly unimpressed taste in my mouth.
This phone, like the Droid Charge, does not experience any signal drop when I did the speed test while holding it fairly tight. The GPS was not as fast when it came to getting a signal, but it did keep it's hold throughout, and that alone is a very good thing since some phones couldn't do that to save their life.
In my opinion, The Thunderbolt is still the best 4G phone on Verizon. The Charge is the second best, while the Revolution takes the number 3 spot on my "top 3 LTE phones" list. These are all great phones if you're in the market for one. Clearly the Thunderbolt, even with its instant power killing abilities, is still the oldest and superior LTE phone.
