HTC ThunderBolt Review – Part 2

Wirefly Learn » Android Phones » Android Phone Reviews

February 14th, 2011


We’ve already taken one look at the HTC ThunderBolt for Verizon Wireless. This powerful new Android phone is the first phone to use Verizon’s 4G LTE network, so there’s a lot of interest in it. So much interest that Wirefly decided to create another video review of the ThunderBolt’s capabilities. In Part-2, we take a look at the ThunderBolt’s applications and user interface, as well as a look under the battery to see the microSD memory card and the LTE SIM card.

Click on the video on the right to see more about the new HTC ThunderBolt for Verizon Wireless.

The HTC ThunderBolt is available at a great price from Wirefly.

  • I purchased a Droid 2 about 15 months ago from wirefly.com. The first phone I received was overheating and doing other bad things, I contacted wirefly and they sent another phone while I sent the bad one back. They required a deposit but that is understandable. The bad phone was confirmed by them to be bad and my CC was quickly credited the deposit. I have had no problems with the replacement phone and look forward to buying another from wirefly for my wife who wants the Samsung Nexus.

  • Hi Bob,

    When I sign into my g-mail or yahoo mail account, it keeps saying account already exist? I’m not sign up for the account…sign in to check the mail. Thank you

    • Tuan, It’s hard to say what the problem might be without seeing your phone. Have you shut your phone off and re-started it? If that doesn’t help, stop at a Verizon store and ask an employee there to take a look at your phone. Good luck!

  • I am interested in using Wirefly, but need to know if all phones offered are refurbished or new. Can someone please let me know this?

    • Scott, Wirefly sells only new phones, never refurbished. Prior to shipping the phone to you, we open the box, insert the battery and confirm that the phone works. We install SIM cards in phones that require them. That way, you get a phone that is ready to be used. Keep in mind that you have 30 days to return the phone (and we pay the return shipping!) if you are not satisfied.

      Thanks for asking!

        My sim card nor battery was installed. Shipped to wrong address.

        • Do you have a question or request regarding your purchase, Linda? If you need help getting the package delivered or re-shipped, please contact wecare@wirefly.com. With your order details, they can track down your order and get it right.

  • Buy a vibrator… it’s cheaper.

    I currently have the Incredible and the vibrate just isn’t strong enough. Is it stronger/longer on the Thunderbolt?

  • Any preliminary thoughts/feelings regarding battery life?

    • Just that the battery life is at least average. That’s all I can really say at this point.

      • Hi Bob,

        Thanks so much for the great reviews. Still the best review of teh Tbolt out. I was wondering if you could speak to the rumors regarding the battery life of the Tbolt since you have a working model with you?
        Based on the review, I assume you do not have 4G service as of yet so. Even so, can you please let us know if there any metrics you can provide (besides 1400MaH)about the battery.

        • Thank you for the kind words, Moe!

          Although it seems like I should have weeks of experience with the ThunderBolt by now, the reality is that other phones come in and I must turn my attention to them. Therefore, I don’t spend days using the ThunderBolt. I did create a video to test the battery life of the ThunderBolt, which you can see here:


          That may give you some idea… hope it helps!
