The HTC Thunderbolt is Verizon’s first 4G LTE device. This, combined with the 4.3-inch display, have us eager to know how long the battery will/can last. Aside from the speed, battery life is easily the most talked about aspect of the device, for better or worse.
The best way to gauge battery life is from a variety of users, and we have an excellent thread in our HTC Thunderbolt forums stickied.
Here are some quick tips from users that have improved battery life:
- The preloaded Blockbuster app is set to scan info automatically by default. Users who have disabled this through settings in the app have reported a very positive effect on battery life
- Turning off Friendstream (deleting the widgets)
- Changing the display settings. Often times when looking at battery use (Settings->About Phone->Battery Use), display is the main culprit. It’s a beautiful screen, but even turning the settings to Auto-Brightness can help things.
These are just three examples of tips and tricks for better battery life. For more or to add some of your own, check out our thread, Happy Bolting!
