HTC Vivid

Verge Review

For Americans, this is the year of LTE. Granted, MetroPCS and Verizon actually launched their first LTE markets and devices last year, but next-gen data has really hit the mainstream in 2011. Virtually all members of Verizon's high-end smartphone line (the iPhone notably excluded) are now LTE-capable, and the network is now in the process of lighting up smaller, secondary markets. If you're a fan of high-speed data — and who isn't? — it's a good time to be alive. AT&T is about a year behind...

    It may be a tad heavy, the the unit is solid and feels well built. + it doesn't look like other phones.

    Short of a Retina Display... the display is the best non HD display available.
    Certainly better than the over-saturated, hard-on-the-eyes Super AMOLED Plus mess that Samsung uses

    Battery Life is a bit of a mess, but it's a 1st Gen LTE phone so I didn't expect much.

    While i would prefer Vanilla Android... Sense 3.0 on this phone FLYS. It s smooth, responsive and shows no lag at anytime... as manufacturer installed 'stock' roms go... this is by far the best I have ever seen
