    The exact same specs, processor, battery, screen size, and similar look from the front.


    If you are passing on the tbolt because of battery issues then you might want to pass on this as well. Looking at the battery in that vid (with is about the same as in the tbolt) with a simiar screen size and same processor, I am expecting the LG revolution to have the same battery issues.

    I don't get why LG didn't rebrand the G2x for Verizon. That's a phone that would make me stay.

    That would have been the better choice but it seems like LG was rushing to put a phone out at CES for vzw. I wish LG would have went all out for this release, but it seems no oem is doing that for vzw this year.

    +1, Still one of the best keyboards I've used on a phone.

    Ironically, the Droid Charge gets the best 4G battery life out of them all so far, so you charge it less...the Thunderbolt SHOULD have been called the HTC Charge, since it seems that's what you have to do constantly being an owner of one. :)

    Ok so I'm getting really tired of all the thunderbolt bashing I have a non rooted bolt with stock battery and make it from 7am to 11pm no problem I use Pandora a couple hours a day,surf the web quite a bit, use navigation daily, and check apps like facebook and droid forums all the time as well as text and gtalk . I do have 4g when I'm at work and I turn 4g off at home because I don't have it there and I barely ever use wifi I could at home but 3g on this phone is fast enough for most things .

    it does honestly have pretty bad battery life, but its nothing an extended battery won't fix.
    Most HTC phones have pretty bad battery life.

    And as far as reboots I got two after the update and did a factory reset and haven't had any since or at least I haven't noticed any. My wife also has one and has all the same results except she had a few more reboots because she didn't want to do a reset but finally did and she hasn't noticed any since either

    I do agree that you could kill it fast if you tried but Im a moderate to heavy user (1.5-2 gbs a month) and i have no problems. I came from an OG droid and i say my bolt last just as long as my droid did.
