HTC Thunderbolt was the first phones in the US to go 4G offering seamless connecting to the super-fast Verizon 4G networks. Boasting a reliable bandwidth and smooth connectivity to any online gaming or chat application, the Thunderbolt also offers high-definition video recording and streaming.

The Thunderbolt, true to its name, is a strong performer backed by a sturdy build and an intuitive design. The phone itself boasts a rather large screen, a 4.3 inch WVGA display that makes the model much more responsive to touch, aside from making browsing and navigation effortless. The power and volume buttons are unobtrusive and the kickstand itself says HTC. Aside from its handsome if slightly prominent design, the in-built cameras offer dual shoot capabilities, with an 8-megapixel camera on the back and a front-facing 1.3-megapixel one that is ideally located to enhance your video chatting experience.

The current Thunderbolt release comes with the latest Sense UI, HTC’s own application that works like a top layer over the primary Android OS. While most of the improvements to this interface in itself seem superficial, some of the feature additions are very pragmatic, such as the fast boot settings and easy access to app history. Supported by a 1GHz core processor, the access speeds are smooth and efficient, as one has come to expect from the HTC Sense. However, even with its rich user experience, perhaps the prime selling point of the Thunderbolt is its lighting-fast bandwidth support, something that should appeal to every Internet junkie out there. Broadband connection and download speeds are second to none, with seamless loading of even media-heavy sites and mobile hotspot functions offering reliable linking to up to eight devices with negligible drop in performance stats.

With a screen size that makes maneuvering easier and a complete feature-enhanced interface, the HTC Thunderbolt is a solid performer that proves to be the ideal pick for anyone looking to go the 4G way.
