HTC Bolt vs Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge vs Pixel XL vs iPhone 7 Plus: size comparison


After weeks of leaks and rumors, the HTC Bolt, the company's new metal beauty, has just become available exclusively on Sprint.

Taking inspiration from the world's fastest sprint runner, the HTC Bolt puts its focus on solid support for Sprint's 4G LTE network, making the most out of it with its advanced modem that supports 3 x 20 MHz carrier aggregation, meaning simply that it can connect to various wavelengths in the network.

There is one other hugely important thing about a modern phone, the HTC Bolt included: its actual physical size. With phones growing bigger by the day, some people are often discontent with too-large devices (while others actually like them). The HTC Bolt is a 5.5-inch phone that definitely leans towards the larger sizes available on the market these days.

We put our signature size compare tool to use to see how exactly does its size compare against the other heavyweights. First, we compare it against the most important phones in its own 5.5" size category: how does the HTC Bolt size up against the Apple iPhone 7 Plus, Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, and the trendy new Google Pixel XL? Well, it definitely does not have the thinnest bezels, and while it is smaller than the iPhone 7 Plus (which is one of the largest 5.5" phones on the market), it does not impress with compactness when compared against the slightly narrower Pixel XL, or the much more compact S7 Edge.

Next, we also compare it with the mainstream flagships, mostly smaller devices. You can see clearly below how the HTC Bolt dwarfs these devices: if you're looking for a compact phone, than the Bolt definitely does not fit that criterion.
