Rated 5 out of 5Â by MiguelD HTC Vivid
I have this phone for almost four months and I have to say is a great phone, is like my another laptop with the gadgets I put it to my vivid, but the only thing I complain is the battery life but beside that I love the phone. That's why I giving him 4.6/5.0!!!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by snack would reccomend...
This is a sexy phone and I would reccomend it to anyone and everyone, as even with the iPhone 5 on the marketthis phone, which was released significantly earlier, is still doing many things that ip5 cannot.
My only problem with this phone, basically, is the battery life. It is trash, but if you keep that in mind and invest in a backup battery or a battery control app you can easily avoid a dead phone.

The HTC Vivid is just great. I absolutely love it. It has everything you could ever want and need, a very large and clear screen, GREAT customization, and fantastic performance. The only problem I have ever had with my phone is that when you do too much then there is slight lagging.. but that is how anything is when you overload it too much. You can do anything you want and have a great screen to do it on. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by dbobman4566 Great phone
I have had this phone for almost 6 months and I absolutely love it. It has never crashed nor as it ever frozen up for a second or so. It is , in my opinion, my perfect phone. Great camera, great video, and I love the speed. It took less than a minute to download angry birds. The video is great although the audio sounds a little awkward when you play it back. There is a facial unlock feature that I absolutely love I don't need a code or anything I just need my face. Beats audio makes the volume on music sound a lot better. My only complaint is that battery life falls slightly short. I use it alot and end up with barely 5-10 percent by 7 o'clock. Ask screen size is great for my hands. I was reading other reviews and many said it was slow and got extremely hot. I personally have not had these problems and I use my phone for web youtube, messaging and to play games. I definitely recommend this phone

I just upgraded from a Palm Pre Plus that I use for 2.5 years and oh what a step up! I tried the iphone but didn't quite like it. I college of mine purchased an HTC smartphone years ago, and I've wanted one ever since. I can get a lot accomplished with this smartphone. I keep documents, appointments, passwords, contacts and Google calendars & email organized on this sweet piece of machine. Love the facial recognition! I'd prefer to call it my PDA, but I that would date, wouldn't it!? ;-). Very functional for this OG!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Mattsb1211 Love it!
I got the HTC Vivid as an upgrade, and I have had it for a few days now and absolutely L-O-V-E it. I had an HTC Inspire, this phone with the 4G LTE has made listening to iHeartRadio so much better, and when I plug in my headphones the music experience is awesome. I really love the extra memory on the phone itself, as the Inspire only had 1GB (and half was already taken by system apps and processes), the larger screen also makes it better for watching videos or playing games, I will cherish this phone!

Rated 1 out of 5Â by 51MintisunhappywithHTC I hate this phone for the most part!
I do love the beautiful pics from this phone, but this phone is entirely TOO difficult to navigate. This is my second HTC in 8 days, and one is doing the same as the first. It will not play when hooked to my car radio. All of the features and functions do not work properly. The reception in buildings in NOT clear not is the volume loud enough to hear. I don't even want to get started with this battery that may last all of 3 hours. Think long and very hard before you purchase this phone.

THIS PHONE HAS NO FLASH PLAYER OR PLUG IN..SO ITHAS AS MUCH VALUE AS ONE OF THOSE GOVERMENT PHONES WITH A CAMERA ADDED TO IT.ATT SAID THIS WAS AN UPGRADE MY PREVISIOUS PHONES HAD BATTERY PORT ISSUES AND I WOULD BE SO HAPPY WITH THIS PHONE. ELL GIVE THEM ANOTHER 50.00 TO BUY DOWNLOAD AND INSTALL ON THIS PHONE. WITH MY SAMSUNG I HAD WHAT I NEEDED TO DO THE THINGS I DO ON THE WEB..... NOT WITH HTC SOME UPGRADE HUH

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Solreapr HTC let down
When I first purchased this phone I fell in love, and I have never had a small single problem until the unexpected happened. As the phone was doing a system update, It froze on the HTC startup screen. No matter what I did it would not go past that screen, and the next morning the phone wouldn't even power on, and now do keep in mind that the phone has no water damage and has been in a otterbox since I bought it. After I couldn't get it to come on I took it to an AT.&T store where I was told the upsetting news, the phone had a software crash, so therefore I lost everything. And the worst part of it all, the part that makes me so upset and sad is that I lost all of my pictures, even the ones of my baby girl being born, and those were the only ones, and so because of a screwup bye HTC I lost everything, and I will never get those pictures back. So before you buy this phone think about this.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Sukii I Love My Phone!!
I upgraded to this phone earlier this year and have had no issues with it. I chose the Vivid because I had such a good experience with my HTC Inspire.
This phone is excellent for browsing the Internet, using apps, taking pictures/videos, and of course making phone calls. I have gotten many compliments on the pictures taken with this phone that have been posted and printed. I don't even carry a seperate camera any more!

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Spartanfan Ready to throw this phone in the toilet!
At first I really liked the Vivid....but then I had many unexpected errors and had to send MANY reports to whomever I send them to. But, I was good for a while and now I'm getting many errors again....I have had people tell me that I sound like a robot when they call and don't call me anymore because of it and the latest and greatest is that the camera won't work! I would really, REALLY like to take a picture of our Christmas tree, but when I try to start the camera, my screen goes completely black. I've had to do many restarts the past couple days just to get signal. This is getting old....I cannot wait until I can get a new phone....I highly doubt it will be any HTC.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Cmholcomb Starting out loving it, but...
I bought my Vivid in February, this is now December. This is the longest I have kept a phone. I started out loving it, but then certain things started to get to me. Like a splinter. The longer I have it the worse the issues begin to bother me. I will just list the pros and cons of the phone.
Seperation of the Glass from the actual screen(in the dark you can physically see a millimeter of bright light that looks like a crack)
No longer connected to HTC Hub.
Power On Time
Battery Life(absolutely the worst battery lifer on any handset I have ever owned)
Started out as a good device, but the fast degradation of condition makes me regret the purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Nicolina9 Not Bad
It's a beautiful sleek phone, and it's features are fun to show off. I must say its speed is incredible. Downloads all sorts files in a matter of seconds (pdf, doc., docx. etc.) and it even allows me to edit the files.
The phone doesn't really lag but I have had a few glitches with it when it comes to sound. I'm a big music person so the music aspects grabbed my attention the most. The Beats audio really does make a difference but there have been several occasions where the jack would not connect to an audio input. In a matter of weeks after receiving the phone, I could only hear music out of one ear and it wasn't the headphones. Sometimes sound wouldn't come through my headphones at all, so I constantly have to do factory resets which is so annoying. And I'm not the only person who has experienced this with the phone.
Other than that, the pictures the camera takes are stunning especially if they're landscape pictures. The screen's graphics also aid to the beauty of the photos. The apps run well and the phone has quite a number of handy tools to make your experience worthwhile.
But I do recommend getting a case right away because I don't know how fragile the phone is.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by notdignnosound No Sound
I love my Vivid! I just have one major complaint, this is my third one and my sound keeps going out on them. Very frustrating!! In order for me to get it to work I have to power down my phone and we all know with theses smartphones it can become time consuming when you need your phone. I'm currently awaiting for my next phone to come to me. I hope it's better!

Rated 1 out of 5 I wouldnt recommend this to my dog!!!
I got the phone in March of 2012 . Here it is February 2013 and I hate it more than anything in the world ! The Audio Playback shuts off frequently . I cant watch a good episode of Netflix without having to restart my phone 20 times in a row. Not only that , but my charging port has bit the dust . I regret WASTING a good $170.00 on this phone. I knew I should've got the iPhone !!

Rated 3 out of 5Â by SoonExHTCVividUser Faulty Charging Port
The phone is great. The only down side is that this is my 2nd Vivid. First time I had to replace it was less than six months after i purchased it, new straight out the store never been used! Now this second one has the same exact problem.... less than 6 months again, problems with the charging port! Its not the plug! Its the actual port on the phone. Ive had to "rig" it with a rubber band just to charge my phone.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by waxy2002 You get what you pay for....
I have had the phone for about a year and you may or may not know but like all things this phone is getting older and is not as popular as it used to be. So for a $0.01 its a good deal. For a penny you get 4gLTE and you got Beats Audio. BUT there are also some problems with it.. the phone would randomly reset itself and I would have to take out the battery over and over again just to fix whatever problem I had with it and it is time consuming doing that over and over again. BUT like I said its only a penny and for a penny you get a lot of KEY things so don't expect some fancy phone. Just remember YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR .

I had this phone for almost a year, and I have only had one problem, I could not connect to the Internet for one day...Still dont know why that happened, this is the BEST PHONE I have purchased, it was only $0.01 from AT&T, and I am still loving my phone!!! I have never had to replace anything on it, nor do I have battery issues......This is a great buy for me, but now that times are changing, I think I will be upgrading very soon, HATE to see my HTC go, but its time for a change....LOVE MY PHONE!!!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Renee0464 HTC Vivid / Battery Life
Overall about the phone is great. But, very BIG Issue is the Battery life. It drains battery fast. I'm on my third battery and only had the phone since Sept 2012. They keep sending me out a new battery....
Thats not the main problem. Apps keep draining it, I shut down apps and they reappear back on ??? Drains it. Phone only lasts up to a good 6-8 hrs off charger. NO good!!
