HTC Thunderbolt faster than Droid Charge on 4G LTE

We have already pitted the HTC Thunderbolt and the Samsung Droid Charge together, and revealed some interesting benchmark data. However, there has now been a new report that suggests that the former performs much faster download speeds on 4G LTE. What we find amazing with those results is how they are both on the same Verizon network.

This is not just an isolated issue, as it seems that the Thunderbolt performed faster 80 percent of the time compared to its rival. To give you an idea of these speeds IntoMobile learned from Root Metrics that downloads speeds for the Thunderbolt were 16.7 Mbps, while the Charge could only manage 11.4 Mbps.

Having said that, even the lower download speed is acceptable, but how can there be such a difference, as they were both tested in Seattle? Let us not get too ahead of ourselves here, as both handsets have their good and bad points. Yes the HTC handset is much faster on 4G LTE, but the Samsung smartphone has a much better battery, which for some is more important.

The HTC has not been without its issues; first it was hit with a huge delay, then next there were reports of bricked handsets due to a radio leak. Thankfully this was only an isolated case and has been proving very popular for HTC.

Are you concerned between the 4G LTE differences in download speeds?
