2011 Best Phones

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I had my iphone 4 stolen about 3 hours ago. Not much I can do about it, except start shopping for a new phone. I have decided not to purchase an iphone again, and am probably switching my plan to verizon from att. I would like suggestions on the best phone out there. I have done some research and the thunderbolt looks pretty good, but I wanted more opinions. If there is already a thread like this, I couldn't find it, so please direct me to it! Thanks.

EDIT: I have it pretty much down to the Motorola Atrix or the HTC Thunderbolt. Let me know which one you think wins.

I think the HTC Desire HD is great! Only problem is low battery life. (Apparently there is a mod or something to help this + get better resection)

I do not have this mobile yet but I'm waiting for my contract to end so I can upgrade plan and to this phone.

No because I'm and idiot.

EDIT: the phone was also password locked, so I don't think mobileme would be able to connect. It says it must be connected to a registered wifi.

Aside from the HTC Desire HD, the Thunderbolt's battery life isn't too good either.

Just putting it out there.

I'd personally go with the Atrix, or wait a few months. Nothing special about the Thunderbolt imo.

if you can tolerate AT&T, the Atrix is a better phone.

LTE is faster than HSPA+ though. Just something to consider.

You'd be better to wait til summer because that's when the best (htc) phones come out for sprint.

And no phone has good battery life if you use it to its full potential

I'm a huge fan of the Evo (an Thunderbolt) but that said it is a rather dated phone. You may want to wait for the Droid Bionic.

Either of the two are currently the best ones for AT&T and Verizon. It all comes down to the carrier you're getting.

Thunderbolt is not an Evo. They have different procs and different ram, plus one is LTE.

OP, wait for the Droid Bionic or the Samsung Galaxy S2.
