HTC ThunderBolt is a not so powerful Android phone released in 2011, featuring a 4.3-inches capacitive touch-screen, a quite powerful processor speeding at 1000 megahertz, an 8 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 1.3 megapixels front-facing camera.

This cellphone comes with a quite powerful processing unit speeding at 1000 MHz, included in the Qualcomm Snapdragon S2 MSM8655 system chip with 768 MB of RAM memory. Graphic intensive tasks generally uses a lot of CPU time, so this cellphone also has an Adreno 205 GPU clocking at 245 MHz to help handle those graphic tasks. A good advantage of this cellphone is its 8 GB quite big internal storage and a slot for an external memory card, allowing you to install hundreds of applications and games without any trouble.

Apparently HTC totally forgot about weight optimization, putting together a 6.23 ounces device. This cellphone just has 4.75" long, but it manages to hold a 4.3 inches display. This device is a little bit thick for current standards, with its 0.56" thickness.

HTC equipped this cellphone with a nice 4.3 inches screen, and a resolution of 800 x 480 , making everything look very nice. This screen uses TFT capacitive technology, and is multi-touch enabled.

This phone features wi-fi connection (which it can provide to other devices acting as a wireless router), 4G (LTE) high speed connection type or 3G connection type, over EV-DO A technologies. This phone doesn't have a SIM card, because it doesn't work with GSM connections and it can connect to CDMA networks.

This phone has two cameras, an 8 MP back side camera and a 1.3 mega-pixels front side camera. This phone also films videos in 1280x720 (HD). The camera also includes a few useful characteristics: auto-focus, flash, face detection shooting and geo tagging.

This cellphone has a medium 1400 mAh Li-Ion removable battery that provides this device a good battery duration. This cellphone has an estimated stand by time of 330 hours and a talk time of 6.3 hours.

This cellphone also comes with many interesting features like Bluetooth (2.1, EDR), GPS Navigation, NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your device close to another NFC device or tag) and Radio, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer and Compass.

The HTC ThunderBolt is a good choice considering it only costs $ 99, while other similar phones cost a few extra dollars. If you will use it as a social cellphone, this cellphone is a great option for you.
