Motorola DROID 3 vs HTC ThunderBolt

0. phoneArena 21 Jul 2011, 09:31 posted on

In a battle for the good fight, Verizon’s lineup is stacked to the brim with some quality Android smartphones that encompass every bit of the spectrum. Naturally, the HTC ThunderBolt has been riding the wave of success as being the carrier’s very first 4G LTE enabled smartphone, but with anything technology related, its top tiered status will naturally dissipate over time. With that knowledge, the Motorola DROID 3 is coming from out of the shadows to take back the spotlight...

Phonearena! You guys are some of my favorite reviewers. Would you all please do a HTC Evo 3D vs HTC Sensation 4G comparison. Also, a HTC Evo 3D vs Motorola Photon 4G comparison? Thanks for the consideration. I've been checking multiple times a day for the Evo 3D vs Photon comparison but to no avail. Other websites have done them but this site is more reliable.

Look, i work at verizon and the droid 3 is pure crap. I have seen many reviews praising it, but here is my experience: call quality is horrible, the display is horrible, and even with a dual core processor, it lags horribly due to the over-bloated motoblur crappy ui. It is one of the worst phone we carry. At least near the bottom of the heap. If you read the BGR review on it, it describes almost exactly my experience with it. perhaps google can whip motorola mobility into shape, but for now they are poor phones compared with HTC or Samsung.

This is going to be tough since I'm upgrading this Friday. I had my heart set on the T-Bolt, but after reading several reviews, it looks like they're a lot closer than I thought. Also, the majority of the comments support getting the D3 over the T-Bolt.

For me, the 4G isn't that big of a deal, and having your battery die in 6 hours isn't cool either. RIght now, I'm having to re-think my decision.

Thanks for this great in-depth review - it really opened my eyes to how good of a phone the D3 is.

Dual-core is all hype. It hasn't proven faster processing in real-world scenarios. Wanna see a proper review of the Droid 3? Check out Attack Of The Show's review on G4 or G4.com.

The picture with the phones displayed with their keyboards out is incorrect... that is not the Thunderbolt. TBolt does not have a keyboard like that.

all iphones are probably the most glitchiest phones on the market i work with celll phones its my job and i deal with more glitched out iphones than any other device. all iphone users sorry but the IOS is not as Good as the Droid operating system. the devices are much more powerful and allow u to do 10x more than than the iphone. look more at your device before you start hating on the droids because when it comes down to which phone can destroy the iphone most phones on the market nowadays can.

I had a few android phones and they were cool. I have an iPhone now and I'm enjoying it. Who cares if the new android phones out there have more RAM, dual core processors and all the other bells and whistles. Having an iPhone doesn't mean that I'm a follower or that I'm a iSheep or whatever names you jerks give us. iOS is closed and you can't do much, but as far as the guy above saying that he deals with "glitchy" iPhones is crazy. Hey buddy, I work in the cell phone buisness too, I use mine every day; just because you "use" phones doesn't make you an expert on iOS. If you like Android, good I'm happy for you. But when the iPhone 5 launches, and all of your SEGMENTED android devices can not use certain apps, blame the developers. iOS may be closed, but its consistant and reliable. Its funny, now ALL android 2.2 and 2.3 phones can stream Netflix, when people were doing it on the iPhone 3G for years. Good Luck with your Honeycomb, and Ice Cream sandwich; sooner or later you guys will have to use Hydroxycut to get rid of those extra empty calories.
