Review: HTC Vivid and Raider

updated 01:05 am EST, Sun November 6, 2011

HTC Vivid, Raider 4G dual-core phones tested

HTC has been on a relentless tear through 2011, releasing new, faster (or bigger) phones seemingly every month, but it has never truly cracked AT&T: even phones like the Inspire 4G are outsold by the cheapest iPhones. With that in mind, the Vivid (known as the Raider elsewhere) is theoretically a powerhouse: 4G LTE, a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, and a massive 4.5-inch screen. But are sheer numbers enough to dislodge Apple and give AT&T a reputation as an Android carrier? With our HTC Vivid review, we'll not only look into whether it's worth getting over an iPhone but whether the Samsung Galaxy Nexus threatens to undo HTC's hard work.

    Vivid's consruction quality

    I was quite surprised reading about the seemingly poor construction quality of the HTC Vivid. Having one myself, I find it possessing one of the sturdiest, highest quality builds EVEN among HTC's high-quality phones. The Vivid has a uni-body construction made of not cheap but the highest-quality plastic! The metal back just adds to this quality build. I haven't had the phone long enough to comment about the other points of concern raised in this review, but I certainly disagree regarding the Vivid's physical build.
