Samsung Droid Charge unboxing

Samsung Droid Charge unboxing
On April 28th, Verizon will release its second 4G LTE smartphone, the Samsung Droid Charge SCH-i510, which will sell for $299.99 (after rebate) with a 2-year contract.. We recieved our review unit a few hours ago and so far we have been pretty impressed with what we've seen.

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.

Below is our unboxing video, and be sure to check back for our upcoming full review of the Samsung Droid Charge.
