For those of you coming from newer phones (Charge, TB, revo, etc)
Hey guys, currently using the Charge but having some problems with it, though i'm not sure yet if my phone is defective or some of the problems are more widespread. Anyway I have to decide whether to replace with another Charge or getting a D3. Most of the reviews I've read are coming from OG droid owners, but I'm wondering how the D3 compares to those of you who've made the switch within the 14 day window with a newer phone.
I really enjoy the camera on the Charge, I thought it great step up from the incredible I originally had, while image quality was similar the charge actually took the picture a good deal quicker it seemed, with better focus. How does the D3 stack up in that department?
One of the main reasons for returning the Charge is the wifi signal and speed was really bad. Now i'm not sure if the problem was just with my phone, or other's were experiencing the same. Hard to judge Wifi when everyone has a different connection/speed.
I use wifi most of the time (90%) so I never really used the 4g. My rated home connection is 25/25 mbps up and down. Through desktop my speeds are 30 mb down, 23 mb up on average. My Incredible hits 23 mb down, 16 mb up on average. The connection is pretty stable, so you won't see too much discrepancies between tests. For the charge on the other hand, the speed was all over the map. My download averaged about 11 mbps, but more importantly my upload could not get past the 1.6 mb mark, sometimes sitting below 1mbps.
Does the wifi on the D3 come close to what you expect?
