    I thought it is/was difficult

    A child has taught his grandpa how to use 'Whatsapp'. His grandpa said:

    1. I thought it is difficult.
    2. I thought it was difficult.

    Are both sentences both possible?

    Only the second works.

    Re: I thought it is/was difficult

    I agree with 5jj, but the sentence is not very natural.

    How about, "That was easier than I thought (it would be)"?
