I was looking at this phone but was wondering if it is just too underpowered for a new phone. Isn't the snapdragon chip old these days? Would it be better to wait for a few more months for the other LTE phones to come out? I believe the Moto phone will have a dual core chip - thoughts anyone?
I'm going to look at it, but I doubt I'll be buying it. The processor is one reason, but if there indeed is an iPhone5 not far around the corner, I can wait a few more months to turf my Storm2.
Also, this phone, as I understand, was push back a couple of times, by a matter of weeks. Doesn't sound good to me. But eager to at least look at this phone.
The more I think about Android versus iPhone, the more I think what I want and need is with the iPhone. But I still need to do more searching on the intertubes before making a final decision (but if anyone knows of a website that does a good job in pointing out the pros and cons of Android and iOS, I would be very interested).
Not sure if anyone cares around here but it was rooted today.
They had a heck of a time. i also will wait. Want a 4g world phone.
It was not as hard as the G2 to root, it took Scootty2 and the guys more then a month to permaroot the G2.
In fact the guys/gals that hacked the Thunderbolt used scootty2's hack for the G2 to hack the Thunderbolt.
I feel your pain.
My Storm1 sucks! I've been waiting and waiting because I don't want another crappy phone. Albeit that leaves with the crappy phone while I wait.
Saw it at VZW yesterday. Nice device. A bit wider than my old Droid X. In a few months, we will get 4g in our area, may consider it.
Reading reviews, many people have returned them because the battery life is soooo bad.
Are there any android devices out there with good battery life?
The not yet out T-Mobile G2x is rumored to be a battery life champion! Then again, T-Mobile is under the specter of being bought out by AT&T. However, rumors are that its a quadband 3G device(meaning it'll do AT&T 3G and T-Mobile 4G). We'll see.
Look forward to reading some reports. I now have an extra battery and external charger.
