Research Firm: Thunderbolt Outselling iPhone at 28% of Polled Verizon Wireless Stores

511

This is interesting. Research firm BTIG polled 150 different Verizon Wireless stores in 22 cities and came up with the following statistic: the HTC Thunderbolt is outselling Apple’s iPhone 4 at 28% of the locations polled. (And we’re sure they own a lot more stores than 150.)

We can’t put too much stock into their findings, though, as there are many other different ways to buy phones from Verizon Wireless. 61% of stores polled said that the two phones were neck and neck, while a measley 11 noted that the iPhone 4 was selling faster.

Even with the meager sample size, this is good news for Verizon. They’ve tested the waters and are seeing if there is room for high-end devices from these direct competitors on the same network. If these results are even a tiny bit indicative of what’s really going on then I’d immediately call the HTC Thunderbolt a success. [via BGR]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  13. Excellent news. I just had a fun discussion with my iPhone friends on Verizon. Apparently, sometimes the iPhone shuts down and won’t turn back on unless you hold two buttons simultaneously. They’ve also been experiencing problems with the home button. Sometimes they have to hit it repeatedly to get it to respond. I promptly gave them a link to the HTC Thunderbolt page. HAHA!

  37. I believe the comparison in sales is more relevant looking at os vs os. When comparing one Android phone to iOS I would expect iOS to sell better. This would be like saying the 2011 red Mazda 3 GT is outselling the Nissan Altima in 28 percent of the makets surveyed. Given that, I think it is a success for HTC and Android to have these kind of sales for the Thunderbolt.

        Remember that the thunderbolt is basically a souped up Evo (which was a souped up HD2) and nothing at all like the new Evo 3D. And they all use qualcomm chips!
        They also said that 4.3″ is just way too big and nobody would want a phone that big and that won’t use ipod accessories, no itunes, ios apps, etc.

        Remember that the thunderbolt is basically a souped up Evo (which was a souped up HD2) and nothing at all like the new Evo 3D. And they all use qualcomm chips!

      6. Actually, I’m more upset because I waited 2 years for the iPhone to come to Verizon and broke down and bought a DroidX. However, you know I’m right about a new iPhone doing better than selling the same as any Android… at least out of the gate.

    5. It may be 10 months old but it has only been availble on verizon since feb! Are you mad because you got stuck with an iphone?

  48. You are kidding right? So what you are saying is that a 10 month old Apple product is selling “neck in neck” at the majority of stores with a two week old android. That’s success? No, success would be a 10 month old android selling “neck in neck” with a 2 week old iPhone 5. But we all know that won’t happen.

  49. So this is news that a brand new phone with 4G is outselling another phone that has been available for quite a long time?

    In related news Verizon has confirmed the Thunderbolt is also outselling the no longer available Motorola StarTac.

          Since you’re a troll I won’t bother arguing with you, I just wanted to correct your obvious lack of knowledge of the Thunderbolts capabilities. Oh and by the way, I got that kind of battery life with 4G on. It’s actually pretty good at dynamically switching based on reception. It’s a beautiful piece of hardware.

      One year later: “Apple’s building a bigger iphone! yay!”, and fastest selling smartphone segment are 4″ phones and above.

      Anyone dumb enough to lock themselves into a proprietary based manufacturer deserves all the cognitive dissonance they can stand when manufacturers wake up to the universal Android world. All those 3rd party cheap plastic iphone accessories and plugins will seem as dated as iO/S,

      1. How are my points ridiculous? The iPhone 4 is not new. The Thunderbolt is new. Where in my post did I mention ANYTHING about screen sizes, Steve Jobs, velvet ropes, or any of the other off point remakes that you spewed?

        Is the Android crowd so blind that you can’t acknowledge that the Thunderbolt beating a phone that is almost 1 year old, regardless if it was only available for 2 months on Verizon, is not actually great news?

        And for the record I have a Droid, Droid X, Droid Inc, iPhone 4, Xoom and iPad 2; along with a few iPods for the vehicles. All have their uses and their niches. Yes I use my 80G iPod in my vehicle where it stays. Yes I have a nano for working out so I don’t have to carry ANY phone. These are devices not children. Some folks need to step away for a bit and get a grasp on real life.

        It really is sad to see the constant Apple vs. Android and vice versa bashing on all the sites. If only most people put as much passion in charities or politics we’d be leaving a better place for our children.

        It really is sad to see the constant Apple vs. Android and vice versa bashing on all the sites. If only most people put as much passion in charities or politics we’d be leaving a better place for our children.

    9. Your points are completely ridiculous.

      1) Apple fan a month before iphone on Verizon “say goodbye, android!!”
      2) Velvet ropes, check. Abundance of apple store employees, check. Huge anticipation, check. New Verizon iPhone owners…*crickets*.

      Oh please.

      Jobs: No one wants a big phone, they’re like hummers.

      One year later: “Apple’s building a bigger iphone! yay!”, and fastest selling smartphone segment are 4″ phones and above.

      AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHA

      Anyone dumb enough to lock themselves into a proprietary based manufacturer deserves all the cognitive dissonance they can stand when manufacturers wake up to the universal Android world. All those 3rd party cheap plastic iphone accessories and plugins will seem as dated as iO/S,
      meanwhile Android is embedded in coffee makers, cars, refrigerators, stoves, microwaves, and everything else that will make our life easier.

      But it’s ok, you can still use your wee little ipod.

    In related news Verizon has confirmed the Thunderbolt is also outselling the no longer available Motorola StarTac.

  59. to all the android bashers that use the”iphone has been out for 9 months” defense…You fail to realize or at least make mention of society, marketing, etc. My nephew ( who is 6) uses his mothers iphone on a daily basis! That being said, one might conclude that these phones, while both great, are very different, and will attract a very different crowd. For me, coming from a droid incredible and trying out an iphone4 was terrible. It’s a very smooth OS , but soooo restrictive. The Inc had/s been out for almost just as long. It’s like saying Lil Wayne is the best rapper because he sells tons of records…while there are real lyricists that could do way more,faster,and better. Yes…I just compared Iphones to lil wayne hahaha. The Tbolt is my dream phone…it’s a larger dinc with more ram, updated sense,larger screen,kickstand, and that lil thing….what is it? oh yeah! 4G LTE

      1. If I give you a pair of year old sneakers….they’re new to you…..but they’re still a pair of year old sneakers. The Verizon iPhone is essentially the same phone that AT&T has offered for nearly a year. I for one never considered jumping ship until Verizon released the iPhone 5…..the fact that it has sold this well has been surprising to me. So for me there are no moving goal posts. A year old phone with outdated technology shouldn’t even be competitive with a brand spanking new, 4G LTE phone. To celebrate that as if it’s some sort of achievement is completely asinine.

        4. You give me a pair of year old good, brand name shoes …I will gladly take em. I rock New Balance, the same color and style. The style is about 1-2 years old. I have no problem with that.

          It aint like this is the orig iPhone we talking about. This is the beautiful, amazing iPhone 4….

          That year old phone is still new to Verizon customers. That articles here n there mentioned ppl were so patiently waiting for.

          Year old or 5 years old…it was something ppl were supposed to be patiently waiting for…and were so overjoyed that it was finally here.

          Those same ppl are now gonna call it an old phone? The same phone that set sales records on Verizon? I think that means some ppl didnt think its was all THAT old.

          The same phone that some pro iPhone ppl claim…

        7. I guess you didn’t get the memo. We are supposedly in a post-PC era where nobody cares about specs and geeky things like ‘4G’ and gigahertz, anymore. iPhone is all about the ‘magical’ experience that only Apple can provide.

          Nope. Folks just aren’t buying the Apple koolaid.

          1. Also, in a post-PC era where a PC is required to:

            * Use your phone
            * Use your tablet
            * Use your MP3 player

            It’s all so very magical that a post-PC world would require a PC to do so many things…

          “as soon as the ip4 hits Verizon its OVER for android!”
          And its just not so… Some people enjoy being able to do whatever they like with their rather expensive piece of technology.. And some like being told how to use there limited use barely works as a phone toy!

  94. But wait? Wasn’t the Verizon iPhone supposed to ‘put Android in its place”? It was supposed to prove that Android was only doing well because of the iPhone’s exclusivity with At&t and that a move to Verizon will be an end to the gravy train. Well…..sorry but not all users are easily bamboozled by the Apple hype nor are they willing to bend over for Jobs. I know it’s hard to accept the fact that People may actually like Android and are satisfied with what it does for them. But the truth is in the numbers.

        Its funny . Some of yall made the same excuses about old phone last month when we didnt see any lines. Turns out Verizon did online sales better than AT&T did.

  111. A few things….

    First, what kind of iPhone DOUCHE comes to an Android website to whine? F-U

    Second, any idiot that deals with Apple in general is a fool OWNED by licensing, control and fear. What’s that, bought a song on iTunes and can’t play your mp3 on any other player? Oh, too bad…another wasted $0.99. Oh wait, I bet they hate Microsuck for the same reason. The truth is, Apple makes Bill Gates look like Mother Theresa. (Microsoft, funny, haven’t heard that DEAD name in a while huh?)

    Third, any idiot that stands in line to by an iPhone OR ANY PHONE is a pathetic loser wishing this was 1982 and they were standing in line for Van Halen tix. Have some dignity!

    WAKE UP….The Google Death Star is focusing it’s full POWER on your home planet!

  121. Wow, people love any lame reason to uncork the champagene. I have been reading the thunderbolt suffers a lot of the Evos problems and then some. Again as an former Evo phone holder I got sick of craptastic crap faulty programming. And before some rabid fanboy starts up I am a programmer I know good stuff from mr in the basements crap. I want to try android again sometime when the hardware and batteries are not crap andvthe software is seriously worth having

  125. Maybe people should wait for the actual sales numbers before throwing the party. Would it surprise u if in three months verizon says we have sold 5 million iPhone 4’s and 500,000 thunderbolts?? Wouldn’t surprise me at all. Let’s not get all excited over a few days comments from store employees.

    1. If the Thunderbolt sells 500,000 that would be a huge accomplishment, since according to some ppl the iPhone on Verizon was gonna be the death of Android on Verizon.

      The Thunderbolt outselling the iPhone at ANY store is an accomplishment, since Android on Verizon is supposed to be dead now.

      1. Ya well according to some, android was suppose to be the death of
        apple. Lets be reasonable here. Android and apple aren’t going
        anywhere. But once again I say, the thunderbolt has NOT outsold the
        iPhone. It was selling at a faster pace. Wait for the sales figures.
        People clearly can not read. All the article says is the team called
        stores and asked which phone was selling faster. Not how many of each
        have u sold since launching on your network. Do u not see the
        difference?

  130. I just love the fact I can use my window’s software on my android phone. I can copy, paste, move, defrag, and free space clean the SD card from my PC to my phone. Does anyone know if you can do these things with the Iphone hooked to a PC running windows with no special software of any kind?
