I was just in verizon, held the charge, compared it to the thunderbolt, have to say I like the charge more. Colors are MUCH MUCH nicer on it, plus its lighter and battery life is better from what I've been told. Also was told that it would more then likely hit the shelves tomoro on the 3rd. Rep rumor but none the less it what seems to be going around the most on the forums and in the store.

I had the chance as well tonight to check out the live demo unit. I know the store managers at my favorite VZW locale and they were told to pull it off the floor, again today with no reason.
Now I bought the ThunderBolt on launch day, the phone was super fast solid weight to it, but once you added the extd battery it bulked up a bit. The Charge is super light with stock battery and even with an extended battery it will be lighter, I may get the extended just to add some weight to it.
As mentioned above the screen is STUNNING, it was like a plasma tv in my hand and given the same 480x800 I could care less what apple calls their display it kicks it arse big time.
I can also say what gives on the hold up especially given that the Verizon stores HAVE INVENTORY sitting in their stock rooms, waiting for someone to actually get off their arse and release it. Seriously if they drag this out so it can be "on a Thursday" someone needs to get fired.
All in all, I have stayed away from Samsung, but this has me at the door ready to go, the only thing I want to know is how long before we can get a nice ROM or AOSP ROM so we can get Touch Wiz out of there.
