When we dared to compare the dynamic duo of the Samsung Droid Charge and HTC ThunderBolt, we showed our readers a chart of all the features of the fist dynamic duo of the Verizon Awesome 4G-Threesome.
There are some new tests from RootMetrics that takes the comparison
even further, comparing data speeds, network performance, call access,
text delivery, and battery life.
We already knew that the HTC ThunderBolt has poor battery life, but the new data shows some major advantages of the HTC ThunderBolt.
Previous tests showed data speeds close for the two. RootMetrics shows a big difference in data speeds.
The HTC ThunderBolt average download speed was 16.7 faster than the Samsung Droid Charge at 11.4 Mbps. The maximum download speed for the HTC ThunderBolt was 49.8, which is almost double the Samsung Droid Charge at 17.4 Mbps. Average upload data speeds was about the same, while the maximum upload for the HTC ThunderBolt was almost double at 22.6 with the Samsung Droid Charge at 12.7 Mbps.
Texters should note that the median text delivery time for the C is 11.7, while the HTC ThunderBolt clocks in at 23.8 seconds.
