While the HTC Vivid is a decent performer on all fronts and has 4G capabilities (where available), the price for said performance just isn't on par with other devices on the market today. That said, some do like a little heft to their devices, and...

The HTC Vivid is in every way a high end phone with a solid dual core CPU, qHD display that we really like, a good 8 megapixel camera and true LTE 4G. The market is absolutely flooded with top tier Android smartphones, and the Vivid does little to...

The HTC Vivid is a respectable phone for AT&T to bring to market as one of its first two LTE handsets. The hardware looks and feels great, though it's a bit thick and weighty. Those are caveats that any current 4G LTE device comes with, however. It...

Crunching down the numbers, pricing is one of those driving factors that always has some weight to the overall allure of a particular handset. Obviously, the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket is priced $50 more than the HTC Vivid, but it’s absolutely...

If you sign up to a two year contract with the $100 online discount then you can get your hands on the HTC Vivid for $99.99. That’s pretty competitive, but it needs to be because the Vivid isn’t as pretty or enticing as some of your other...

Knowing that there are plenty of killer Android smartphones on the horizon, one would suspect the HTC Vivid to be lost among the juggernauts that are expected to come very shortly. To tell you the truth, it might be written off as an underappreciated...

LTE is well-trodden territory for HTC, thanks to its previous dalliance with Verizon and the Thunderbolt. And with AT&T now taking "real" 4G to consumer's hands, it's understandable that the operator would want valuable hardware insight on its...

The real bang for your buck in this device is that you’re getting an 8-megapixel camera with HTC’s camera software that has many different filters, scenes, and an ultra-quick tap-to-shoot speed, LTE connectivity (if you live in one of the...
