    How will this phone change the landscape at all? And seriously sprint?!?!?!?!

    I just don't think this will end up being of benefit to sprint or HTC in the end.

    I really don't get it either. If they were looking to make a midrange phone and sell it for $400, I would better understand the 2 year old specs. However, it's $600. $100 more than my G5 for what? Water resistance? Nice feature it really is, but it's not something that would pull me away from my G5. It's a confusing direction that HTC has taken. They depend on the minority of Android users that can appreciate their product, snapdragon 810 doesn't enforce that at all.

    Supposedly HTC and Sprint worked closely together to design this phone to take advantage of all of Sprint's new network technologies and be fast out of the box. There's a 50% off Black Friday sale. I'll probably pick one up on upgrade to get out of my lease if the reviews pan out.

    I live in Denver where Sprints Advanced LTE is. And wow, is it fast! Which is the point of this phone. It isn't the "Fastest" Sprint phone based on CPU performance, but the fastest internet speeds. Which is the point of this phone.

    I got this phone on their Black Friday special at half off. Even though it is using the Snapdragon 810 SOC instead of a newer 820 or 821 it is well worth the money for $300.

    McPlot is correct. One of the best selling points for the HTC Bolt is support for 3x20 MHz Carrier Aggregation. Which is super fast! Sprint has started to deploy three-channel carrier aggregation many markets (Chicago, San Francisco, Minneapolis, Dallas, Denver, Kansas City, Cleveland and Columbus). If you happen to be living in one of those markets I would certainly take the HTC Bolt for a test drive. Other things many customers are looking at is the slightly larger screen (5.5"), the included Hi-Res adaptive headphones (earbuds) and a having a general preference towards HTC. I've compared the Bolt head to head with an HTC 10. I only found trivial speed differences (in terms of CPU) and the Snapdragon 810 is nothing to discredit in terms of speed and suitability. You also get Android 7.0 right out of the box which the HTC 10 hasn't seen yet. If you're a fan of HTC, don't knock anything till you check one out in person. The HTC Bolt is a very nice phone overall.
