The HTC Vivid is a lovely high end phone with enticing specs and a vivid (sorry, but it is) qHD display. The problem? It's one of the homeliest phones HTC has turned out in years and its 4G LTE launch mate, the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket shows it up in some, but not all, respects. But for HTC fans and Samsung not-fans, the Vivid has enough going for it that we can easily recommend it.
The HTC Vivid it has a 1.2GHz dual core CPU, a lovely 4.5" qHD display and HTC's high end 8 megapixel camera with 1080p video recording. It's available now for $199 with contract.
