Love it!

I came to the Vivid from the BB Torch. The transition to Android was bumpy, but I had to drop the BB like a hot potato.

And the camera is fantastic, both still and video!
I just got the vivd also and love it! But I'm having a hard time finding wall paper apps for the phone, due to the weird cropping size. have you found any?

1620 mAh battery???

Don't buy this phone if voice is a primary factor.

Lots of us don't give a damn about call quality
Many people, especially younger generations, rarely use voice. That's why we say things like that.

LTE Speeds

I recently got this phone at Best Buy Mobile, and have it in Indianapolis, Indiana. My data speed is pulling 24.8 down, 12.6 up...pretty impressive. The LTE network goes live in two days here...maybe it will get better.

I agree with the voice quality on phone calls, but it should get better if they ever open up LTE to voice calls not just data.
