Strong dual-core performance; Fast 4G LTE Speeds; Affordable
Sharp and colorful qHD display, solid reception, great LTE speeds.
Gorgeous, high-resolution screen, Very fast LTE data speeds, Robust contact management.
The HTC Vivid has a nice, large screen, an excellent camera, and great specs all around. It supports 4G LTE as well.
Relatively heavy; Mediocre camera; Short battery Life
Aesthetics not up to HTC standards. Small battery.
Heavy, A little sluggish, Ineffective voice dialing, Spotty AT&T LTE coverage (for now).
Subpar calling quality, Weak battery life, No stand out feature, except LTE, Poor video recording quality
Mediocre call quality on the Vivid and a cheap plastic chassis dampen the experience. The battery obstructs access to the microSD card.
