Having had the Thunderbolt for a month, I thought I would share my experience with you. Good: Bright responsive display Fast 1Ghz processor Fast LTE 4G: giving me a 19Mbps speedtest.net result Decent call quality Talk and surf Bad: Priced pretty high Battery life is horrible This phone has some pretty incredible features that made for a pleasing experience. I used this device while living from two different houses. This was great because the WiFi tether feature came in handy when I was at my second house without internet access, and it's actually faster than my internet provider. The phone is a bit on the thick side, almost the size of the HTC Evo4G that was released over a year ago, and that was a let-down because phones are started to fit the same technology in a much smaller device like the Galaxy S II. If you're in the market for a an ultra-fast phone with a large display, runs HTC's Sense UI and is easily hacked, then this is certainly a great choice. It is number one on my list. If you're going to buy this phone, you'll need either one of two things. You should also purchase either a portable battery recharger, or an extended battery pack. If you don't want to get either of these things, then you better stay close to a wall plug, because this phone does take the cake for "worst battery life" I've ever experienced. But, that's what comes with the speed and I didn't mind it much. Any Thunderbolt owners out there want to share their experience with us?
