I don't think the Thunderbolt or the Droid Charge are very impressive even with the LTE capabilities. I don't see a hardware difference great enough to warrant signing a new contract for people who already own the Droid X, Droid Inc, or Droid 2.
Memory, both the TB and DC get a 32GB microSD card, the TB claims 8GB of "internal" storage yet delivers ONLY 2.31GB of actual internal storage. The DC states 2GB of internal storage, yet not one review has actually stated how much you get.
With a 32GB card you will just put all of your apps onto the card, which leaves only parts of the app on the phone, but I need to know before buying I will get at least 1.8GB (formatted) or no go.
You can't say the DC sucks due to Samsung updates and say the GS2 is going to be better, its still Samsung so it would still suck. I would rather lock in a 4G phone now while pricing is allowing unlimited rather than wait and get stuck with tiered pricing I won't like.
Thank you. I just checked out a review with screen shots of the installed apps and I noticed a lot of the usual crapware Verizon loads up.
City ID (640k)
Kindle OEM (1.87MB)
Lets Golf 2 (131.05MB)
V Cast Media (.760k)
VZ Navigator (2.67MB)
So if you get 1.18GB out of the box plus you strip out another 268MB roughly giving you around 1.45GB of available internal memory. Certainly missing about 1GB compared to the ThunderBolt, but who knows what other cool things could come from some custom ROM work.
