The Samsung Droid Charge is a 4G LTE smartphone that comes packed with features including a brilliant Super AMOLED Plus screen, a camera that can also shoot HD video, and super fast 4G Internet speeds.
When you first pick up the Droid Charge, the screen immediately stands out. It is large, bright, and has stunning colors, making it one of the best screens on any phone. Even with the big screen, the phone is thin and light, easily fitting in a pocket without any hassle.
The hardware included in the Droid Charge is no slouch either. Under the hood is a 1GHz processor and 512 MB of RAM, making this phone one of the quickest out there. The Charge also comes with a 32GB micro SD card which gives you plenty of room for any applications you want to download.
Being a Droid phone, the Charge runs the Android operating system. Unfortunately, it ships with Android 2.2 which feels old and outdated compared to newer releases. Samsung's TouchWiz user interface doesn't come close to other options such as HTC's Sense interface. There are also many applications that come installed on the phone that do very little other than take up space and slow the Charge down.
Another drawback to the Charge is the virtual keyboard. While this works fine on many phones out there, the Charge is not one of them. The keys, especially the space bar, are placed in awkward positions and it is easy to hit the wrong key. Battery life is also not very good at all, but can be improved by turning off the 4G function when you are not using it.
Despite the drawbacks, the Samsung Droid Charge is a strong performer in an ever-growing market of 4G phones.
