I'm willing to give a fully functional LG Revo a shot, buy it from Best Buy so I get at least 30 days to swap for another phone (15 if I want to cancel the upgrade) and go from there.
The Charge has an outdated processor (generation wise) too little internal storage, teh ThunderBolt is not light either and when I had mine for 6 weeks it had enough issues with poor readability outdoors, BT, battery life. Sure it was fast, so what if the tank is dry every 3 hours.
LG, quality, good heads up and I have no issues pushing for a replacement and making it clear. Still the Revo has VoLTE, TB has SVDO, Charge has nothing special.
Revolution Dimensions 5.03" x 2.63" x 0.52" and Weight 6.08oz
ThunderBolt Dimensions 4.75" x 2.44" x 0.56" and Weight 6.23oz
Charge Dimensions 5.11" x 2.66" x 0.46" and Weight 5.04oz
So the Revo is a .30" longer x .19" wider and .04" thicker yet its .15oz lighter. So I guess its not as heavy after all it just feels that way.
I know the Optimus UI does not appear too, and to me all of the special UI's friggin suck, lucky for us we can put any launcher we want on the phone and ignore the built in junk.
