When I was looking for a cellphone i was going to buy teh Samsung Galaxy S3 at the time. but the salesman convinced me that this one was better because it had a better LTE coverage. And boy have i regretted that decision for the following reasons:

1) I had to pay $50 bucks. Galaxy was free.

2) its buggy, It crashes all the time. A lof of times by itself. (i would just hear the phone rebooting from my pocket)

3) Wi-Fi is buggy. I have to restarte the application/phone sometimes just to continue browising the internet. and of course while i do that the Data-network kicks in downloading whatever it is i was trying to view. effectively defeating the purpose of usign wi-fi.

3) its typing is slow and cluncky. im no fan of the iphone but its not user friendly at all. sometimes if you click outside of the keyboard area it will kick you out of it and browse to the first message you have saved of whoever your writing to. leaving you with 1 of 2 choices. A) exit and go back to it as a draft, or B) scroll down your saved messages, all the way to the message you are writing. hopefully you set it up for ie: 50 messages because otherwise you will be scrolling through hundreds and hundreds of all messages... you get my point.

4) deleting apps is haard as f$%^. you have to go into applications then go to delete applications then you have to look for the application. sometimes this wont delete your application. confused? you can imagine my frustration.

5) cannot delete apps that come with the phone, ie: twitter. you have to hardwire it to the computer and delete from there. do you have time for that? neither do i.

6) battery doesnt last (very big and bright screen - could be a plus)

all in all annoying to navigate and operate. VERY buggy. save your money and go get yourself a Samsung Galaxy.

I have the raider, love it, recently I send a txt and receive, I get the same sound for send & receive, although settings are different, popped the battery, changed the sounds, etc, still won't correct this issue, so now I don't know when I'm receiving a txt because its the same sound for send & receive, any help would be great...I am with rogers, they suggested I do factory reset to solve this, I do not wish to reset, any help to further correct my issue would be great... jimp849@gmail.com

I'm Loving my HTC Raider 4G which i got from Korea! It has 1.5Ghz processor not 1.2Ghz and I've been using it since June as a replacement of my HTC Desire HD(still using it though) hahaha! I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that HTC would update it to Jelly Rockin' Bean!! >.< -Bacolod- Philippines! >.

You People Are A Circus. This is simply a good phone, once ICS came out, solved a lot of glitches, if you're experience was bad with this phone, you either got a defect or you don't know how to handle and operate a mobile device, and should go to your nearest hardware store and buy a helmet!

I loved my HTC Raider, but it went through a system update and is no longer like the older version, and I hate it.. It crashes, it's slow and i have to him an app several times before it actually decides to bring me there, and now the batterie life SUCKS! like what is happening!

> In reply to Hoption @ 2012-09-08 11:47 from 3b$e - click to readThere are options. Whether they can be used is another question.

On my Raider, with Bell in Canada when I go Settings > Mobile Network > Network mode I get the following options:

WCDMA Only
GSM Only
GSM / WCDMA Auto
GSM / WCDMA / LTE Auto (my selection)

I believe if you only have a 3G/HSPA+ based service LTE will obviously not be enabled. Bell supply special LTE sim cards for their service (not sure if this is standard on all networks) but i know if I travel outside LTE coverage it kicks down to 3G/HSPA+ so I'm assuming I could choose to go off the LTE auto setting and have it always run in 3G.

Its an excellent phone... A master piece from HTC... The LTE is super fast, faster than my wifi... i bought a case with kick stand and i'm loving watching HD movies on it ... hands free... streaming live TV and video... Better than the Samsung Galaxy 2 and the LTE versions...
