    We have two of them and our experience has been all positive. Both are stock and we haven't had a single random reboot on either one. Keep in mind I'm not a heavy phone user, but the least I ever seem to get on a fully charged battery is 12 hours. I usually get between 16-24.

    The TB is amateurish and unpolished. A guy at work couldn't take it anymore, he ditched it for an iPhone...that thing is so smooth and so well thought out.

    iPhone is nice, but compared to most any Android it's an inferior phone. Very locked down and first now getting features (although limited) that Android has had since the beginning (multitasking). Just my 2 cents.

    Like Droid 592 said. I've been on android since the original Droid and can't see going to anything else. I did get an iPad because I "JUST COULDN'T WAIT" until the Android tablets came out. Soon as I can find a buyer for the iPAd it goes and Android comes.

    Thunderbolt + extended battery = perfect phone.

    No offense but I always think iPhone owners and enthusiasts have low expectations when it comes to phones, they just want something that can call, text and browse the web. Of course you've specifically stated that's among what you want lol.... But the Bionic will probably have a locked bootloader, so if you plan on rooting and experimenting with kernals and ROMs, get the bolt. Plus its Verizon's first (and probably last IMO) phone to do simultaneous voice and data over 3G.

    Btw, HDMI out isn't all that great, I have a cable for my Droid X, I mean why would anyone really use it... for a permanent business presentation solution MAYBE, but natively the Droid X can't project more than pictures and non copyrighted video onto anything other than the already big screen.

    The Droid X HDMI is terrible even with apps that unlock it.

    Samsung has full mirroring with the charge that's supposed to be awesome.

    +1 about the battery sub forum. My brother has a TB and out of the box that thing is the biggest battery hog I've ever seen in a phone. It took a few weeks but we got it to where it is actually usable. Yes I realize root/custom rom will make it fly with great battery life but he is not tech savvy and he has fears about warranty so rooting is out of the question. For the average user why should you HAVE to heavily modify your phone to make it run decent?

    I got my tb the day it released and I haven't had any issues with it other than a reboot here or there and man is this thing fast as lightning. I highly recommend this phone. I have the stock battery and an extended battery my extended battery lasts almost a day and a half on medium use and my stock about a day maybe a bit less. You just gave to make sure you condition your battery right. No IPhone can compare to this phone because this phone is so fast and very user friendly and you have to love the HTC sense. I am very disappointed however with HTC and Verizon because a HTC rep said we would have it by the end of the 2nd quarter. So all and all if you are looking for a phone and you are choosing between the tb and any other 4g or any other 3g phone the thunderbolt blows them all away. The 4g alone is insanely fast. Like I literally crapped my pants when I saw how fast thing could load. It probably can load Verizon's website just as fast as your computer can....

    ive had my thunderbolt just shy of 2 weeks now and i absolutely love it. i was very skeptical about getting it bc of everyone slamming it on here and saying how you need to root it for it work etc. ive had 0 issues with it and the battery life lasts me all day with moderate use (texts, emails, calls, web) maybe i got lucky, idk. i think it also helps that im not one of those people constantly glued to their phone 24/7.

    I always hear this and just have to wonder what the difference is. We have two stock T-Bolts, and while neither of us are heavy users, we always get at least 12 hours off of a full charge, usually between 16-24. If you are streaming music and movies well of course you are going to get much shorter battery life, but that isn't exclusive to the T-Bolt.
