HTC Thunderbolt Battery Life Causes Delay, Verizon Facebook

The HTC Thunderbolt news still carries on and Verizon has responded on its Facebook page, the delay is apparently down to battery life issues. Stick with us, as we will cover until released.

The HTC Thunderbolt delay according to Android Community suggests that it could be down to the battery life, apparently the poor battery life needs sorting before Verizon can release the smartphone and HTC is trying to fix this problem. Apparently the Thunderbolt can only give 3 to 4 hours of battery life running the LTE/4G connectivity.

Earlier on today phonesreview.co.uk writer James reported via sources that Verizon does not have a clue, if you visit the Verizon Wireless Facebook page you will see that they have responded to the delay and have said and quoted:

Hey fans, we appreciate all the excitement about the anticipated launch of the ThunderBolt by HTC. We’re excited too! Verizon 4G LTE is America’s fastest, most advanced 4G network & we want to ensure the advanced technology behind our first 4G LTE phone is flawless. We will announce its release date as soon as it is confirmed. Thanks for your support & patience while we work to bring you the ThunderBolt by HTC.

Droid-Life has reported that the HTC Thunderbolt ads have been removed from YouTube, which were live on Verizon’s YouTube channel, they are all now private and cannot be viewed.

The last we heard the HTC Thunderbolt will now be released to market on March 4, this has not yet been announced as of yet so please do not get annoyed with us as we only report what we hear, but trust us you will be the first to know when it does officially release. Thank you for being patient.

      FINALLY someone who gets it! Thank you Dominik, I was starting to lose faith in humanity from all the whining and moaning and gnashing of teeth over the launch of this phone, it was getting ridiculous.

    Would you rather be upset that the phone is not meeting expectations? or that it's taking a while to come out due to ensuring satisfactory device is being delivered? I think I rather wait to have a phone that works.

      I have to agree it is better to get a complete product but I will be testing the 4g battery life for myself before my 14 day return date expires!

  2. Are you kidding me? Battery issues have killed all HTC Android based phones. Nice to see iPhone 4 was redesigned for better battery life, but I would never buy one of them. Why can’t we have an Android phone that last all day? There has to be more to it. Samsung will have their phone here soon for Verizon. You will see.

    I agree that it is best to launch with the bus already worked out. But battery life could very well be quite a “complicated” issue. And what will they considered “fixed”? 5-6 hours vs 3-4? I’m a little concerned with this issue.
