PocketDroid Review – HTC Thunderbolt


Speedy Internet access has become the need of the hour, internet on the move has just become our daily need. In order to full fill our this addiction HTC has come up with a new 4g LTE Uber Phone, HTC THUNDERBOLT. AS the name suggests the phone is built up to thunder the Smartphone race, and give bolt to its competitors . Lets see that if could make other companies compete or the phone is just a thunder without noise.

On first look this phone looks beauty because of the famous HTC Sense, the phone has a 4.3 inch capacitive touch screen and, resolution of 480×800p.The dimensions of the phone are 121mm x 62 mm x 14 mm and the phone weighs 177gms. The phone is not so slim as compared to its competitors.

The screen is crisp and very responsive, but when compare to Samsung’s  Galaxy S super amoled screen the display looks faint and dull. The screen is WVGA TFT capacitive touch screen covered by Gorilla Glass, a special crack and scratch resistant material made by Corning. We tried using our nails and coins but we were not able to make a single scratch on screen thanks to the Gorilla glass. The phone has  volume control key on the right, and a kick stand to view photos and videos on the device.

Let’s talk about the hardware HTC thunderbolt has a 1 GHz Singlecore Snapdragon processor manufactured by Qualcomm, and Adreno GPU. It also has 768 MB RAM which is quite low as most of a phone now a day has at least 1 GB of RAM. At this price point we expected a much HTC. The Gpu is not so great to play high tech 3D games. But then seeing its limitation has LTE phone Gpu can be neglected. The battery is a standard 1400mAh  Li-Ion, and it gave us a talk time of 6.30 hours, which is pretty low. As it is a 4G phone battery drains much faster, at least  HTC should have provided us 1700-1800mAh battery.

Coming to the camera, the camera is a 8 megapixel Autofocus, with a Dual Led flash. The camera clarity is awesome pictures are so
