    Upgrade from HTC Thunderbolt

    Are there any phones that are actually worth upgrading to from the thunderbolt?

    Let's all be honest, the HTC Thunderbolt rocks. It's very solid and I've come to love this phone and all it can do. I've been looking at the Razr Maxx, Rezound, and Galaxy Nexus, but they all don't seem worthy of an upgrade. The GS-III and the Razr Maxx HD look intriguing as well, but are any of these phones that much more different?

    The Samsung Galaxy S III that comes out the end of this month will be worth it.

    It really just depends on what you want. Honestly, I would look for dual core and a more battery friendly screen (like the AMOLED) as well as better battery life in general. If u don't want the S III, then wait for the Verizon equivalent of the new EVO 4g LTE; that will be one sick phone
    If you are looking for gaming, get a phone with the latest tegra chip, although I heard that they are working on a new one for phones since the tegra III will only work on tablets for the time being.

    @pogibry......I've been searching all over for confirmation that big red will get a One series variant (like sprint with the evo 4g lte) but all I've found is negative articles. Are you making this statement for wishful thinking?? Or did I miss something? Just curious cause I'm in the same boat as the OP.

    The closest phone to the One series that VZ will get as of now is the Incredible 4g. That may change in the future, who knows.

    To be honest, it is wishful thinking. If somebody follows HTC better than me, Do you know if we will get a Verizon version of the HTC One? I just assumed because the TBolt is just that of the original 4g, so I figured HTC would follow that trend. The more I read of that S3, the more I want it. however, if Samsung is stupid and locks their bootloader again like they did with the S2, then I might not get it.

    Ive heard pretty firmly that vzw will not carry a onex style phone and follow htc alot.. but I've seen rumors of a htc note type phone with a 5inch screen other than that no rumors all i buy is HTC but if I don't hear nothing I may have to use my upgrade on a gs3

    Interesting. I wonder why they wouldn't follow it anymore. Maybe they have better things in stock! I'm also excited to see what's going to happen with Motorola phones since Google bought them out

    I upgraded from the Thunderbolt to the Galaxy Nexus. I love it, your mileage may vary. If you don't mind a non-AOSP experience, or holding out until someone develops a vanilla ICS ROM for it, I would maybe go for the RAZR HD (or the MAXX, I guess, if you don't want to wait).
