Verizon's Samsung 4G LTE smartphone vs LG Revolution vs HTC ThunderBolt

Verizon's Samsung 4G LTE smartphone vs LG Revolution vs HTC ThunderBolt
There's no doubt that probably the most exciting event that took place at CES 2011 today was Verizon's unveiling of three brand new 4G LTE smartphones – the Samsung 4G LTE smartphone, the LG Revolution and the HTC ThunderBolt. So, what do you do when you have three hot upcoming Android smartphones, each promising to become the next big thing? Why, compare their specs, of course!

Although these three handsets share a lot of their features, there are still some notable differences that deserve to be mentioned. For example, you might be interested to know that only Samsung's 4G LTE smartphone (geez, that name!) is the only one of the three to feature the fancy Super AMOLED Plus screen technology, which will bring incredibly saturated colors and great viewing angles. On the other hand, the LG Revolution manages to set itself apart by offering the latest Bluetooth 3.0 version. And finally, the HTC ThunderBolt should never be overlooked as it pack the latest edition of the mighty Sense UI.

As you see, all three are worthy competitors, so let's not waste any more time and get down to business.

Please note that we're using our own Phone Compare tool in order to bring you this detailed comparison view of the phones' specs that you see below. And guess what – you can use this tool to compare whichever phones you want!

Is the Droid Bionic too good for this comparison or something? It seems like if you're going to compare Verizon's most recent LTE offerings, you should at least include the dual cored monster as well seeing as that is one of the most interesting offerings mentioned...

Is it just me or did the Bionic blow these three phones out of the water? Better processor. Better resolution screen. Only thing good about Thunderbolt in comparison is the world capabilities.

Would it have killed HTC to include HDMI along with DLNA on the Thunderbolt?!? I mean sheesh not everyone has a DLNA TV or DLNA router to use this feature!!!!

well in this competition, samsung is the winner for me. ( exept in the name field.)
HTC sense is a software, not a factor in buying a phone, when we have XDA.
and GSMarena reported that bluetooth 3.0 is not so much diffrent than version 2.1, unless they're labled as " Bluetooth 3.0 + HS" .
so, samsung is better. droid bionic aside.
not that I'm getting any of these...
