The reason is it has been prepared and written far away from our office and test lab. The HTC Vivid is a US-only phone, so it will probably never get to the shores of the Old Continent. Still, we think we've captured the essence of the phone in the same precise, informative and detailed way that's become our trademark. Enjoy the good read!"

Amazing device, and battery finally is awesome with HTC, please guys keep in mind always battery life, because now adays, the connectivity is eating the battery, and you gonna make it with good processor and a powerful RAM, so battery is must to be great like this, I loved it, and I am sure this is will be my first Android device for sure, I am just waiting to be available in UAE, and then I will get it for sure. Cant wait to have it in my hands. Please HTC make it available in UAE sooner please. this device with such specs and battery I believe it is gonna be the best yet. Thanks GSMarena the battery test and draw which you make is amazing move, I wish you can do it with every phone you test. keep it up guys, and merry christmas all.

Hey GSM Arena I really like the battery test image. Will you make it mandatory in future reviews? It's really helpful and cool :)

I rather like the angles of the phone, and I'm a fan of metal and other quality build material. I don't like the cheap stuff (samsung), or the brittle stuff (iphone). Before the inevitable fanboy rage ensues, I might obligatorily add "to each their own".
