Rated 5 out of 5Â by Twin0224 I recently ordered this phone and I recieved in the mail that following friday. I had the htc inspire and wanted to cameras this time around. I love this phone its sleek, I love the color, its not to little,so it want slip out of my hands and it works on 4G network. I like that i have two cameras now and I can still send email, surf the web, do homework, and be social with this one device. I would recommend this phone to anybody. I may order my sister one for Christmas. Apart of the HTC Family.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by dallasray I love this phone! It's cute and I love the front facing camera. I had the HTC Inspire before this and I like how when you're at the lock screen, it gives you the option to go straight to 4 different features right away.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Domi I got this phone in November & I love it. Had the iPhone 4 before & didn't care to much for it... I love that the screen is huge.. I can see more & do more. The menu is really personally preference. & HTC really has out done themselves.. App store big & user friendly... same as the music. But this is over all a great phone ;)

Rated 4 out of 5 good phone over all
Went from the iPhone 4 to the HTC Vivid and I personally think that it was a good switch. Only down fall on this phone is battery life, front facing camera on the iPhone I think is way better. The camera in general on this phone is not the best! But like I've said before over all good phone I'm happy and content with it.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by ClumsyThumbs I wish I hadn't upgraded from an iphone
My biggest issue with this phone is it crashes a lot. I've only had it for 3 weeks and already it has crashed on me 6 times...and no I don't run a lot of apps. I constantly check Task Manager. I had my iphone 3gs for 13 months, and it only crashed on me less than 5 times.
Also, I thought upgrading from a 3.5" screen to 4.5" would help with my clumsy thumbs when texting...no way. I'm always hitting the period key when my intent is to hit the space bar. Thus my text msgs would look something like this: Hello.my.name is.AJ. How are.you?
I love the camera and video capabilities though!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by COBBFan THE GREATEST AT&T HAS!
I HAVE OWNED NUMEROUS PHONES FROM AT&T BUT THIS PHONE IS THE GREATEST! THE DESIGN AND THE MENU IS AWESOME. DON'T TALK ABOUT THE SPEED. OMG!!!! I WAS JUMPING UP AND DOWN WHEN I OPENED THE BOX AND SAW MY NEW PHONE. IF ANYONE WANTS A PHONE WITH A COOL DESIGN AND SUPER FAST SPEED, HTC VIVID IS IT! I RECOMMEND THIS PHONE 100%. I WILL NEVER LEAVE AT&T FOR ANY OTHER PHONE CARRIER. THEY ARE STUCK WITH ME. THANK YOU AT&T FOR UNDERSTANDING MY NEEDS AND WANTS!

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Lanese This is a an ok phone if it did not reboot itself ALL the time!!!! I wish I had really did my research before I bought it. Also the screen is not that bright as the sky rocket.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Mandee211 I LOVE IT
i had the samsung captivate glide which was an awful phone. so i decided to get this one. because i like HTC. it is an excellent phone. i stay on facebook and text all day.and the battery doesnt get low until i go to bed. so i would say the battery is pretty good. the pictures are great, and so is the display. it is kinda heavy compared to my old htc inspire. but overall it is a great phone.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by txray Excellent phone.
The camera is amazing, the display is excellent, and is really is easy to use. The only downfall is the battery life, if I'm constantly using my phone the battery lasts for .5 to .75 of a day. I do not use my phone for games, they really drain the battery. I had a HTC Inspire previously and the only difference between the two is the operating system.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by lifeb4love pretty good phone
I went from a blackberry torch to the htc vivid, and wow. Complete 180. I'm glad I get to download apps and songs without freezing! The display is really beautiful and you can change everything around to completely customize it the way you want. The only thing I can't stand is the battery life. I have to charge the phone twice a day every day, even with the battery saver app. Honestly, I'm just glad to get rid of that awful blackberry.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by synysterdee0811 Love that I chose this over the iPhone
I had previously had an iPhone and was gonna sign my contract for a new one...weeeellllll...I got this instead and it is perfect! The pictures this thing takes are better than my digital camera! I also use my front facing camera for Skyping with my Best friend and goddaughters! It gets good service and has amazing memory! I don't think I would change anything about it..except the battery life! If they would update the battery a bit...this phone would be FLAWLESS!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by clear Awesome phone!
I purchased this phone last week and received it on yesterday and I must save that after one day that it's the best phone I've ever had. The 4G LTE network and speeds are amazing! I've never seen downloads happen so quickly and easily. The voice quality is amazing and the battery life for a smartphone with this much technology is great. I wasn't a big fan of ATT before purchasing this phone but I must say that after seeing the improvements the company has made, it has truly been a worthy investment! Kudos to ATT!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by S3r3ni7y Amazing phone, bad battery
I really love my HTC Vivid with the exception of the battery life. It has enormous computing power. The OS is tricky at first but has a wider range of capabilities than other phones such as the iPhone. With voice recognition searches are easier (Siri wont show you different options if she doesnt understand you). Most impressive is the google crossovers making my life so much easier! The battery lasts me about a day and i am always looking for my charger afraid my amazing phone will just die in the middle of the day.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by vhmidnight Great Phone with a few flaws
I've had the phone for about 6 weeks now and have the following observations.
The display is sharp and clear, but like all smart phones, difficult to use in direct sunlight. The controls are placed well, however, the volume controls are huge. This makes it easy to change the volume settings when picking the device up from a flat surface, or from out of your shirt pocket.
Battery life is average to above average for a unit with a display this size. I typically get a solid 12 hours of battery life with moderate daytime useage.
The displays "edge zone" is narrow, so when holding the phone, it iis easy to multi touch the display giving interesting results.
Android 4.0 (ICS) works very well. No major complaints on the OS. The Play store, that's a different story!
Overall, I am satisfied with the phone with the two exceptions of the volume button size and the border around the display. I would recommend this to my freinds and family.
Side Note: I have an android tablet, and it is interesting what will run on one device and not the other. but that list is narrowing.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by GML7 Great Device
First of all, with the price and service that AT&T provides for this device, any little "hiccups" to the phone is kind off-setted. Now with regards to the phone, it's an awesome device. HTC sense is a wonderfull user interface, allows you to customize to your liking, but not to the extent that it takes so much of your time. Albeit, it's not the latest HTC sense, 3.0 compared to 3.5. But none the less, still a great feature. Build quality is top-notch. Screen is amazing, deffinitely worthy of it's "vivid" name. It has heft to it, but not what some may consider bulky. I think that's a reason I decided to go with this rather than the GS2 Skyrocket, b/c it doesnt feel cheap. The processor is fast, atleast for my experience. Now granted, Im not the heaviest user to the point where I may optimize the real speeds of the dual-core processor on-board. But from surfing the web, downloading apps/songs/and files being sent, it works great. The camera is great, especially with all of its little caveats(i.e. shooting modes).
Here are those "hiccups" I was reffering to. Ive had the phone restart automatically-twice maybe, I guess b/c i was running too many apps. Can't really pin-point the reason, but not really the biggest deal. Phone ran perfect afterwards. Also, the battery can be better. Again, I'm not the heaviest user, but I still wish it ran longer, where I didn't have to charge every night, maybe like a 1/2 day longer would work. Lastly, and this maybe just the handset I recieved, my batter door doesn't fully lay flat, it makes like a little noise. But my case covers for that. So if you do get this, just check for that. Other than that, which for me aren't "deal-breakers", the phone is amazing, unique(esp. the white one).

Rated 5 out of 5Â by oif2006 One of the best phones I have ever owned.
I have had a lot of att phones and none were as good as this one. There is only one con with this phone. The Con is that the battery life is real bad. I have to keep a wall charger and a car charger in my car cause if I get out for too long over an hr using my phone its dead. Besides that its real fast, apps load fast, it loads web pages nicely. Text and Email are nice looking and run smoothly.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by mariteri Excellent phone with a poor battery
It's a great phone that's easy to use. It would be worlds better if the battery was longer lasting. But if you have a car charger, it's nothing that can't be lived with. The app market for the phone is excellent. It can help anyone personalize your Android phone especially for you. Even if you decide not to go to the app market (many of the apps are free, by the way) the phone comes with plenty to help you make the phone your own.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Drewmc12 Simply amazing quality
I got this about two and a half weeks ago and its the first smart phone i have ever had....my friends all have the iphone 4 and i messed with it and its decent, but i would much rather have this. The service it gets has been great and its easy to use has an amazing screen and texting is simple on this big display. I love the camera looks amazing in photos and video and it also shoots vids in slow motion (no audio in the video but still fun to use). The wifi and blue tooth work like a champ (for me anyway). Also its really fast with the 1.2 GHz processor.The only minor flaw is the battery it sometimes doesn't last much past 8-9 hours but if your home a lot thats not a big deal...Overall Its and amazing phone and well worth getting! LOVE it

Rated 5 out of 5Â by NVWolfPack LOTS better than I Phone
Went from an I Phone to my first droid, I LOVE IT!!! Great phone!!!! Love features, the design, the HUGE screen. Would never go back to an i phone. Camera is amazing for a phone. Only con for me is durability. I dropped the phone as I was sliding into my pocket and it dropped to the gound and shattered the screen.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Meggboo Absolutely great
I recently purchased this phone as a referb and by far it is the best phone I have had through any carrier. I use this phone for everything from directions, games, texting, music, internet, calls whatever I could think of. When I first read the reviews everyone was saying the battery life was terrible but it for me is pretty standard as my previous phones. honestly my sister and brother have iPhones and tried talking me into getting that but I wanted my own style and that's what I got from this phone. the screen, camera, and speakers are better than the iPhone and the blackberry, EVO, touch, and Samsung I have had. I would recommend this phone to anyone that's looking for a new smartphone. plus the screen protector I have was the first I seen to be reusable and bubble wort free, so easy to use! Love it!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by adorationx The phone itself is very easy to use and set up well. However I've had the phone for less than two weeks and the silver finish on the volume rocker has worn completely off! It is now a brassy orange... Which is very troublesome because I have taken extra precautions to keep the phone like new. I am very disappointed and am left to wonder if the phone will be able to stand the test of time :/
