What's in the Box
HTC Vivid handset, rechargeable battery, charger, USB cable, quick start guide
AT&T's 4G LTE network allows for quicker access, smoother media streaming, and faster web experiences. LTE technology is capable of delivering mobile broadband speeds up to 10 times faster than 3G. Additionally, LTE technology offers a faster response time due to lower latency--the processing time it takes to move data through a network--vastly speeding download times for web pages as well as improving services such as mobile gaming and two-way video calling.
By the end of 2011, AT&T plans to launch its 4G LTE network in 15 major metropolitan areas, covering at least 70 million Americans. Coverage will continue to expand in the next few years and is planned to be largely complete by the end of 2013.
And when combined with 4G HSPA+ technology, AT&T is capable of delivering a quicker, more consistent mobile broadband experience than ever before. AT&T has deployed HSPA+ to virtually 100 percent of its mobile broadband network, which enables 4G speeds when combined with enhanced backhaul (via Ethernet or fiber). Backhaul is one of the major pieces of a telecommunications network. Think of it as the limbs connecting AT&T's cell towers with AT&T's backbone network that provides access to the Internet.
| LTE = Long Term Evolution |
Advanced wireless technology capable of increasing AT&T's already-fast network speeds. Now in select markets with deployment ongoing.
| HSPA+ = High Speed Packet Access |
Paired with enhanced backhaul--the accelerated pipeline between our network backbone and cell towers across the country--this technology boosts network performance.

Android Gingerbread Operating System
The HTC Vivid runs the Android 2.3 operating system (dubbed Gingerbread)--the fastest version of Android available for smartphones yet. It features a cleaner, more refined interface with new icons, improved top notification bar, and more intuitive navigation.
Multitasking in Gingerbread allows you the ability to run more than one app at a time. If you're playing a game, you can easily switch to an incoming e-mail and then switch back to the game without losing your place. And like the previous version of Android ("Froyo"), Gingerbread provides support for Adobe Flash Player 10.1 for access to the full Web.
The onscreen keyboard makes it easier to type thanks to additional spacing between the keys and larger font sizes. And the more you use the keyboard, the easier typing will be as the enhanced suggest feature records previous input history to make better suggestions.
The Vivid also brings one-touch access to the popular Google mobile services you use every day. It also provides easy access to both personal and corporate e-mail, calendars, and contacts supported by Exchange Server and Gmail. And through Android Market, you'll get access to thousands of useful applications, widgets, and fun games to download and install on your phone, with many more apps being added every day.

Earlier this month, the bootloader finally got an unlock, which allowed me to root and install custom roms. This little thing is fast, even if it has an underclocked 1.2 ghz processor. Bloatware can be removed with root.
Replaces my netbook, which I no longer lug around because I have hspa+ on this phone (4g LTE not available in my area yet) web browser is super snappy.
Low volume can be remedied by market apps that boost the equilizer settings.
Chose this over the samsung galaxy s2 skyrocket because, like many other reviews, the colors on the screen come out clearer and in higher definition on the vivid. Netflix and NBA leaguepass play flawlessly on its 4.5 in screen, which is gorgeous.
Camera is amazing. Haven't had much time to play around with it though.
Got a case for it and it makes the volume rocker and power button much less likely to be accidently pressed. I suggest getting the best type of case for this phone.
The only caveats I have with the phone are that the housing of the phone isn't top quality, I had to send my first one back and the second one has the same problem where the housing isn't fully attached to the bottom of the screen, but its small and hardly noticeable. Not worth a second thought, it's an amazing phone!
ICS is coming out within the next two months for this phone! And HTC Sense has the most beautiful widgets and animations....on top of its qHD screen. Sometimes, I'll just watch the weather animations on the screen. :)
Will not be outdated in the 2 years of the contract with its dual core processor and amazing camera!
Definitely recommended!Read more ›
THE WHITE VERSION OF THE VIVID IS THE MOST SEXIEST DESIGN YET!
The phone looks very luxurious in my hand, the soft smooth plastic and my favorite part which is the hard grey metal cover on the back. The weight of the phone what gives its uniqueness, people might dislike this but all the other light phones gives them a cheapy feel.
However, let me get to the pros and cons:
-The screen resolution is brilliant! It is true there is now phones with 720p displays but believe me, qHD is more than enough, plus the 720p displays is too much for the dual cores processors to handle.
-The 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor is ok, its not that fast but there is no lags.
-The camera is good, there is no shutter delay and it takes less than half a second to focus. But taking pictures at night is not an option, the pictures are quiet dark and unclear. But outdoor its great, I love the colors.
-As I have said, the design is pretty beautiful.
-Too many unremovable useless applications, like for instance a mirror app which uses the secondary camera as a mirror. Seriously?
-The volume buttons are too long and I always press them by mistake while holding the phone.
-No bootloader unlock for Vivid which means no root.
-No Super Amoled Screen, the colors are pretty dull. I had the samsung infuse which uses the Amoled technology and THERE IS A BIG DIFFRENECE compared to the vivid's regular LCD screen.
In conclusion, The HTC Vivid is a nice phone, the best from AT&T phones collections. I reccomend it to everybody and they will proudly show off with it.
P.S: I wrote this from my HTC Vivid:D
Love this color, black is undesireable to me. On another note, I wouldn't purchase from Amazon if you are upgrading on a family plan because it would be 160 something dollars here, but on AT&T's website, it is just 100, so cheaper! but all in all I reccomend this product to everyone!
What I like so far:
1. The phone is very user friendly for the most part, and I appreciate that because I'm not extremely intuitive with technology.
2. I love the huge retro clock.
3. It has an indicator light that shows when the phone is fully charged. Not every phone has that.
4. With the 4G, LTE, this baby is super fast when loading web pages.
5. I went from a super amoled screen on my Captivate, to the one on the Vivid, and I don't see that much difference. It looks great to me. The picture is very, well, vivid.
6. When listening to music with headphones, the sound is very good. Without headphones, the sound isn't anything special.
7. The speaker phone has pretty good volume.
8. I can use my own songs for ring tones, and can have as many different ring tones as there are contacts. Also, I can apply my own pictures to my contacts.
9. This may just have been my own pet peeve, but I hated that AT&T "whoosh" sound when my phone came on, and, thankfully, that has gone away. HTC doesn't have a sound when the phone comes on, either, and I really appreciate that. Maybe they don't have one because of their tag line, "Quietly brillant."
10 Others have said that the battery cover is difficult to remove, but I haven't had any problem with it at all.
