Funny... I had the same feelings as I opened my tb boxes for the first time... heavy tank of a phone and nice box. Coming from a x I am not impressed with the phone but the lte is literally the best thing ever!!
Boy does my xoom zoom. I am using my xoom tethered to the tb of course. In a location that gets very poor 3g...and my dl speeds are four plus in both directions. I am in love.

Their logic is so asinine.
It's a "single core in a dual-core age"? LOL. They gave the iPhone for Verizon 9/10 and that isn't a dual-core. Not to mention most phones aren't dual-core at all.
Isn't the Atrix the only one right now?

So the Evo 4G gets a 9/10, and the Thunderbolt beats it in every way and gets an 8/10, because its a little heavy and thick. LOL
The amazing LTE speeds alone should of made this a 9/10.
I want to see what BGR, and Anandtech have to say about this beast next.

Its a pretty good review. Chris tends to give phones a fair shake and in this case it seems like he did a tretty good job. He mentioned battery life which we all new would be an issue. The mention of all the bloatware was also nice to see as these carriers need to be called out in public for this bs.Enjoy every day.

Hi everyone...I see the battery issue thread is closed, I will keep posting my updates for those of you who have not bought the phone and have serious issues about this. If I had any self control I would have done the same!
Today I turned it on at 7:30 and at 5:30 I had 40% left. My bolt had a busy day...constant push of my exchange e-mails (lets just say I get ALOT of email)...face book updates, surfed the net for about 25 minutes, lots of phone calls (I would say 10 in the 5 minute variety, and a call to my mom that lasted 31 minutes (haven't talked to her in like 3 weeks). maybe 4 or 5 texts...I am always turning it on and looking at it. I was really happy with the battery. Will it need charged during the day? I am going to say yes, that I will get in that habit of doing that because I am one of those people that like to not worry about it. But I did not charge it today so I could see what it was like. Live and work in 4g but it does toggle back and forth in and out of buildings to 3G. So far I am not concerned about the battery...my fears about what people have been saying are not true...at least for me so far! Hope this helps you. It is not as good as my storm was in its hey day....but so far day 2 has been great....These are not the droids you are looking for....

Also you have to remember timing is everything. When the EVO came out it was pretty darn innovative. The TB, not so much now. Things are moving quick. Like I said I really like this device but it's not revolutionary aside from being LTE capable. BUT there are many more LTE devices coming VERY quickly.

Need to remember a bit to this phone was originally photo leaked in August 2010 as well, its model is technically old regardless if it is new for us. Just seeing those Evo 3D specs I can say I really jealous (outside of the 3D crap).
Still a solid phone, def glad I only have a 1 year contract with it.

There are other important qualities. For me, I like high build quality and great hardware. As you can tell, many people also want good battery life
Speedtests and benchmarks are a good indicator of device performance but do not tell the entire story.
That being said, I could care less what Engadget's final score for the device was. It all boils down to personal preference and opinion. At least they wrote a nice, professional review. I thought it was detailed and covered a lot of the important areas!It's not who I am underneath, but what I do that defines me
