Samsung Droid Charge Cell Phone Review

The Samsung Droid Charge joins the HTC Thunderbolt in Verizon’s 4G LTE handset lineup. The Charge is touted as the slimmest smartphone on Verizon’s 4G network. Since it also sports a Super AMOLED Plus touch screen and an 8-megapixel camera, we were excited to take a look.

As shown in Figure 1, the Droid Charge comes in a small gray box with the red Droid symbol on the top.

Inside the box you find the Droid Charge itself along with an AC adapter, a USB cable, a small User’s Guide, and some reference material, as shown in Figure 2. Our review unit came with a 32 GB micro SD card and the 4G SIM card preinstalled.

The Droid Charge, as shown in Figure 3, is a solid slab design. At 5.11 x 2.66 x 0.46 inches (130 x 68 x 12 mm), it is a full 0.10 inch (2.54 mm) thinner than the Thunderbolt. At 5.04 ounces (143 grams), it is also lighter than the 6.23-ounce (177-gram) Thunderbolt. Yet, when comparing the two phones in the hand, they feel very similar.

While the Droid Charge has a solid feel, it is an all-plastic, shiny black phone. This makes it a little lighter, but detracts slightly from the quality feel found in other phones like the Thunderbolt. While this phone won’t slip out of your hand easily, we really preferred the soft-touch back like the one found on the Thunderbolt.
