Rated 5 out of 5Â by SERA3000 Definitely top of the line!!!
I picked up the white version of the HTC Vivid as an upgrade. I was looking for a next gen phone with a front facing camera, I ended up with a lot more than I was initially looking for. The screens responsiveness is fast and its very clear and bright. The 8MP camera is amazing. 1080p recordings come out crisp. Call quality is excellent, especially on speakerphone. I use my cell alot to keep into contact with my Girlfriend and my son. We are on two different coasts. We exchange pictures from time to time, now we can video chat using our phones and I can see my son live and clear. Battery life could be better, the entire phone is a hard shelled plastic housing but doesn't feel cheap. the battery cover is thin and silver. Combine this phone with an Otterbox case and you're set. This phone has everything you need, faster processors dont mean better phones. I have had HTC phones since the 8125!, and i must say they have come a long way. I am very satisfied with the purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 My very first android phone was the Samsung Captivate and I switched it out for the HTC Vivid and so far I've never been happier with a phone. The battery isn't the longest but I play a lot of games, constantly going online, texting, calling etc and it will go all day for me plus it charges fast which is a plus. The screen is big which I love and it has a bright and nice display. The only real big downside to this phone is the speaker volume cause I like to listen to music on it as well, if it was louder it'd be perfect. The phone is a little heavier than I'm used to but it doesn't feel cheaply made and after a few days of using it, you don't even notice it. Def would recommend this phone to anyone who wants a really awesome android!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Texcan Have always used BlackBerry.Buttons were starting to give me prob.,thought I would try a Android OS type phone.
Liked the HTC Vivid.Kinda big,compared to what I used.Got used to that.Got a protected case and carrier for it.
Charged it when I got home,had to charge it again that night,etc.Batt.lousy,and I am not a heavy data user.
Then ear plug worked once and would not work again.
Took back to ATT store,they changed out for new one,no problem.
Charged on Mon. and today is Wen.,still on first charge.
Have been on the web,made calls,etc.and not sweating about a run down batt.
Faith has been restored.
Call quality is great,content loads fast.Screen is,well,vivid!
Why I gave 4 stars--can't set ring tone volume high,and notifications low.Can't change just one.
Can't tell if you are loading music or pic.to SD card or phone mem.
If there is a way I have not found it.
In all,pleased with phone.
Will write again if it hose's up,

Rated 4 out of 5Â by joylucky battery life is the achilles heel.
coming from a black berry and refusing to get an iphone, this Android is almost the perfect blend of the two. Decent functionality for business and entertainment. My one very big complaint is that it drains the battery SO FAST. It's fully charged at 9a and after a few calls and texts, the phone dies by 5p. I'm out and about and don't have any way to charge the phone until I get home at 9p. The battery life is atrocious. Camera is great but not with the flash. You get a glow on the screen when using a flash.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Nick114187 Awesome Device!
I love this phone. I love it even more now that is got an ICS update. It runs super smooth and NEVER lags.
Camera. The camera is brilliant.
HTC's customer support
It is the worse battery I have ever seen in a phone. It lasts a good hour. Thats it. I have to constantly carry around a charger.
Overall it is a great device, great build quality.
I would highly reccomend this device.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Naga Great Display and very less weight to handle. Easy naviation for all fetures and great added value to have external memery slot. You can add a micro card with memory size on your wish. 4.5" screen display is a big plus and a great clean scratch proof screen glass which do not require any screen protectors.Battery life can be improved. initial kit package does not contain any accessories if that will be added will be great and attractive Package for buyers.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by oKatie Wonderful phone
I have had the HTC vivid for three months now, I absolutely love it, I truley put the dual core processer to work and has kept up so far. It takes amazing pictures both main and front facing camera.
However, yes of coarse the battery life will run down, but that is expected with any smartphone with overuse.
All you need to do is make sure to turn off any apps that are running, but not using. gotta be smarter than your smartphone ; )
The only drawback is the speaker phone quality, hard for other people to hear you, unless your right up on the microphone and hard to hear them while on speaker phone as well. This is only on the speaker phone setting, there's no problem on the normal in call sound quality at all.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Spacy This phone is amazing!
I got this phone 2 months ago, and I've had little to no issues with it at all. The phone is fast, it never freezes, and I've had little to no problems with it. Occasionally there will be a few bugs here and there, but hey, what smartphone works 100 percent perfectly? I just restart the phone and it works out great.
It's slightly large and heavy (I have a case on it) and awkward to put into a pocket, but it's easy to carry around.
I love everything about this phone but the reason why I say a 4/5 is because... THE BATTERY LIFE. I cannot STAND this phone's battery life, I'm a heavy phone user and I'm out and about most of the day, so the fact that I have to charge it several times a day really disappoints me. If it had better battery life and maybe better design, this phone would be perfect.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by dogman78 okay phone but have seen better
This phone is aggrivating. Trying to use the text screen, it runs all over the place. Scrolling down does also. U can be slowly scrolling down to look at an item and it keeps on past it and you have to start over. Too much time wasted, trying to do simple tasks

Rated 2 out of 5Â by godawgs Okay, but there's better...
I got this phone a week ago. But after doing further research and with some time with it, I've realized there's better out there. It's a fast phone, has a great display, and is easy to use (I liked the HTC sense operating system), but its oversized, hard to carry in your pocket, and the battery is drained too quickly. Plus, the RAM seemed to get really full too quickly, and the call quality is sub-par. I returned this one, and 2 hours in with my skyrocket, I've realized it's way better. Don't bother with this one, unless if you're a huge HTC fan.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Subrat Bulky Heavy Phone
I was looking for a good smart phone from long time. I had compared many phones - Iphone, Samsung Galaxy S2, Motoroal Atrix2. I found most of the features in HTC vivid I was looking for.
For me a smart phone should be light weight, slim, high resolution screen, can play high definition video,smooth touch screen, excellent external speaker, hardware and of course battery life.
HTC Vivid is good when it comes to design, screen resolution and features but it fails in most of the other categories where Iphone is amazing except the fact that Iphone does not support Adobe flash.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by kattt Very Worth Buying
Great Phone! i love the display. it has great apps. The reason its not a 5 star is sometimes just freezes in the middle of a text and its has a very huge screen.ALSO i am not a fan of the auto correct, it always changes it to the wrong word. the camera is the best camera ever had. i love this phone! best phone i ever had. i would recommend for anyone who has an upgrade and wants a great phone

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Mintea Best phone I've had!
This really is an amazing phone. Its performance is great.The camera is awesome and it has so many features. Playing music is very nice on it and I like how it has beats audio. I barely sit on my laptop anymore because I can do anything on it that I do on my computer. Its really customizable and the screen is also nice and big and very clear. Only downside would be the battery life is not so long, but again its a smartphone. The people who rated it badly really don't know how to use it. It is so much better than iphone.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Techdude10 Great phone, but....
This is one of my favorite phones I have had. The only thing I hate about it is that the battery life is horrible! I have to charge it at least 3 times a day. Other than the battery it's a great phone!!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Robbie5455 good phone, but.....
overall the phone is good... good picture quality, ease of use. The only draw back I have is the charger port is of poor quality. I have had my phone now abt 2 months, and unless I play with the plug and get it just right, it will NOT charge the phone.... and what a pain it will be to get all of my apps, etc. and transfer them to a new phone.... but I understand that is the problem with a lot of phones with this style of power plug. Just a poor engineering design...

Rated 5 out of 5Â by awelessmind Freaking Rocks!!!
I have been an HTC fan for years. My last phone was Tilt 2 before that was a Tilt and so on. I will have to say this compares to the Tilt 2, and just so you know I loved loved loved my phone. Even though the screen is bigger you do get use to it. The battery life is not anything near to what I was getting with every 3 days charging (Tilt). The contacts took some getting use to as well. I think I would perfer the letters running down the side instead of having to scroll through every name. All in all very kick butt phone. You get a new phone and it takes time to get use to, and I think I am finally adjusting.

This phone is an excellent buy. I am a computer engineer major, and this phone satisfies all of my needs. I trade constantly, and have had Windows phones, Apple, and All of the Android phones you can imagine. I think I will stick to this phone. HTC has such a wonderful lineup.

This phone is amazing! I am constantly surfing the web, watching videos, and on social network, and yet this phone has been a wonderful experience. The ICS is so fast and responsive so customizable, and the work of this phone will keep me buying HTC phones.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by shoote211 an okay phone
i got this phone to see what android and htc had to offer compared to my iphone and i got to say so far not impressed with it. it freezes every now and then and the speaker quality sounds like your covereing your mouth on both sides. i do like both cameras better than the iphone but everything else lacks.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by CourtneyLeanne1994 Buttons!
When I went into ATT to look at new phones, this one really caught my eye. I loved the big flashy screen and the fact that it came in white. Well, everything was going great up until about 2 weeks after I purchased the phone. I realized the silver buttons were beginning to tarnish a little bit. And now after having it for a little over a month, the phone's top and side button have gone completley COPPER! IT TOTALLY THROWS OFF THE WHOLE SLEEK AND EXPENSIVE LOOK OF THE PHONE! VERY DISSAPOINTED! Especially since te phone was not cheap! NO, I would not reccomend to a friend.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Imran Excellent...
I simply fell in love with this phone. I went to store for some work and this was on display. I simply couldn't resist this one and got it. And didn't regret my decision as this is perfect for Heavy Use and quite robust.
Easy to use and touch pad is excellent.
However, I felt battery drains out quite rapidly, but I am quite heavy surfer so I need to recharge it twice a day.

Rated 4 out of 5 good phone but battery dies quick
I just got my New HTC VIVID less then 2 weeks ago. Some of the features are really good but something's are just a little bit different to get used to. Like I've never had a phone that called your Contacts "people" instead of contacts. Don't get me wrong I will get use to it but its just a little confusing.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by coffeebean330 This phone is overall great. It is my first smart phone, so it will take some time to get used to it. I like the screen size, camera quality, texting, and music player. I just got the phone last Thursday and the headphone jack doesn't work anymore. Also going back to the home screen loads really slowly. This phone requires a lot of data, but can be deactivated in the settings menu. I like the phone overall, but the size of the phone is physically too large for me and I cannot put it in my pocket. With the music player, it is hard to find the music that you transferred from your computer. I do like the quality of the music, since it's a Beatz Audio Enhancer device.

GREAT PHONE! FAIR PRICE!!!!
Durable fast phone with large screen. Ive had this phone for 5 or 6 months and I am amazed. It runs android 4.0 and even comes with Beats Audio installed. I'm not sure why its not advertised as much I'm my area because its great. LTE runs fast. When I'm in my browser and I click a button with LTE, it loads before I takecmy finger of the button. Overall a great phone. I would recommend this to anybody and everybody.

the phone cant keep the right time or time zone for more than 5 mins, the keyboard could be better, the display will fog up sometimes, and too many texts will freeze messages all together

Rated 4 out of 5Â by patriotsfan12 was waiting for this one for a long time
Got it on the 1st day only. If you like big phone- this is really good one. Very elegant in design. The best part is- WONDERFUL Camera! the picture quality of the 8MP cam is exceptional. Also- the HD videos are worth boasting about!
if you want perfect phone for taking pictures/videos, watching movies and listening to songs- dont think much and grab this one!
Battery takes too long to get charged- but it does last quite well!
If Icecream sandwich update is available for this one then this would be the koolest one!
