Samsung Droid Charge unboxing
posted by FAUguy / Apr 27, 2011, 12:17 AM
The large 4.3" Super AMOLED Plus display at WVGA resolution shows crisp text and images with good color saturation. With the brightness turned all the way up on the Droid Charge, it is easy to view outside on a sunny day, where the TFT display on the HTC ThunderBolt is dark and hardly visible.
We also like that there are physical button on the bottom of the Samsung Droid Charge, similar to the Motorola DROID X, which cuts down on them being pressed accidentally. The overall size of the Droid Charge is pretty close to the ThunderBolt, though the ThunderBolt is slightly thicker and a bit heavier. But one thing we do prefer is the soft-touch coating on the back of the ThunderBolt, which gives it a nice grip, instead of the slick plastic back on the Droid Charge.
Included with the Samsung Droid Charge is a 1600mAh battery, 32GB Class 2 microSDHC memory card, wall charger with a detachable 1-meter microUSB cable, and user guides.

A 32 GB card preinstalled? Damn, okay, I can kinda see the 300 buck tag being justified now. 32 gig cards are almost a hundred by themselves.

BTW. Thunderbolt also has a 32 Gig card preinstalled and still costs only $250. $300 is still too high.

I hope this one is good. The fascinate really made people not like samsung because they put the worst phone on their line up on the biggest carrier. Talk about a bad move. Hopefully this phone will redeem them. I still wish they would've just released the Samsung Galaxy S II for Verizon in the summer and they would've dominated.

I really hope this phone is more "polished" than the Thunderbolt is, in regards to the radio firmware. The Thunderbolt has been horrible, jumping between 1x/3G/4G constantly... often times leaving me with no data whatsoever. I'll switch to this in a heartbeat if Samsung's firmware is a better. (couldn't be any worse I suppose)
