HTC Thunderbolt Vs Samsung Infuse 4G: LTE Showdown

2011 will be known for a number of things, such as the true year of the tablet, as well as smartphones like the HTC Thunderbolt Samsung Infuse 4G being embroiled in an LTE showdown. However, it is not just HTC and Samsung going head-to-head, its Verizon and AT&T as well.

Before we even look at how the two stacks up spec wise there is the little issue of the release date. We still do not have official release dates for either handset, but we do expect the both to show up sometime this month. Consumers have been getting angry that the Thunderbolt might be delayed, but Verizon did say that they have never officially offered a release date.

We first learned of the Infuse back at CES earlier this year, and the first thing you will notice is how big the display looks when compared to the HTC Thunderbolt. The sizes are 4.5-inch and 4.3-inch respectively. Both smartphones will run on Google Android 2.2 Froyo, but will come with their own UIs.

The Infuse will offer 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage; the Thunderbolt will only have 768MB of RAM, and 8GB of storage. Seems like Samsung wins that one as well. We do stress that the Infuse is not a full LTE handset, but looking at the numbers, there will not be much in it when it comes to downloading.

What will make the two phones stand out from each other most are their prices, and how much AT&T and Verizon charge for their monthly data plans, which as we know seems to keep changing.

Which looks better on paper, the HTC Thunderbolt or the Samsung Infuse 4G?
