In this video, we are taking a close look at the hardware on the one of the newest 4G LTE devices from ATT: the HTC Vivid. Sadly, the device is simply not inspiring. While the specs are withing the realms of other devices on the market today, there are plenty of more interesting phones on the market for which one can spend $199 for. The lack of nationwide LTE from ATT also serves to dampen what could otherwise be a high point in the device configuration.
