    I have not seen an extended battery for the Charge at my location, but I can tell you from what I have seen it doesn't need it (kept charge for a day and a half for me on various occasions). I was waiting for the Bionic as I am generally a Motorola guy, but ordered the Charge for my personal line. I am tired of waiting on Motorola to perfect the Tegra 2 and LTE problems. IMHO a dual core processor is beyond what is necessary for a phone with my usage, that is for my tablet.

    I talked to a few of my friends from the VZW call center and they said they have people testing the Bionics there and that they're overheating bc of the dual core and it's still being worked on, and they keep getting pushed back, the Charge is an awesome phone, I was a little weary of getting a Samsung after not liking the Fascinate other than the screen, but Samsung has outdone themselves with the Charge!

    I have to agree. My buddy just switched from ATT to verizon and he could not be happier with the charge. The battery life is insane!! 12 hours talk time 280 hours standby? You kidding me?? Super AMOLED screen that has 12 bits per vs 8 bits... I happen to really like the samsung. 2 gig internal and comes with a 32gig SD card...Aside from the supposedly encrypted boot loader, I may be done with rooted phones.... Motorola failing with the droid does make me confident that the tegra will be better... Phones with dual cores just seems to overkill... These single core phones have been getting much more efficient and dual core not needed.. I;m not going to be encoding a video while surfing the web....The 1Ghz ARM is plenty fast and smooth... I'm done waiting around for moto's new baby...

    I couldnt agree more. I upgraded to a charge from a droid x. Loved the x, but this phone does laps around it. I was even rooted n.romed. The screen, battery and just the ui is amazing. I was weary at first because the fascinate was a disaster in my opinion, but they made a great phone in the charge. Lte n a front facing camera. Couldnt ask for much more right now

    I decided to jump ship from my BB 9700 Bold on AT&T to a Charge on VZW. Should be getting it tomorrow.

    I was curious about the Bionic but do not want to wait ______ until it is finally out.

    Hopefully it won't be disappointing.

    How are you guys getting a day and a half on a full charge!!?? I last MAYBE 8-10 hours with my Charge. Email hourly, screen set on 30 sec timeout(but I turn it off immediately anyways) and lowest brightness setting. There has to be some setting that I'm not aware of?! What is your "screen on" time during those days??

    If I were u I would wait on the bionic.. the charge is an ok phone but the bionic will run laps around it... also for those saying single core is fine for todays phone... ok for today yea its satisfactory, but towards the end of the year when apps start to take advantage of multiple cores you will really see the difference. The question is do u want to future proof your phone or run on todays standard?

    That is an assumption. You are guessing at the moment. You have absolutely no idea if it will. Currently the Bionic / Tegra will still use the outdated qHD LCD display. (The one that uses a back light) and uses more power to run. The AMOLED displays don't use a backlight, hence uses MUCH less power to operate.. A phone with dual core's is going to use twice as much energy no matter how you slice it... There is really no need for a dual core CPU for a phone... I'm too disappointed with Motorola, and Samsung has got it right for a change... Great great phone. My buddy did a speed test report on 4LTE this morning.

    Most people do not even get that at the house... Just insane! He also mentioned he gets over 8 hours of continues use and blows away the iphone. He is glad he switched!

    Well man your wrong about dual core using twice as much energy as a single, in fact dual core is less power hungry then single core, Google it. I prefer the charge over thunderbolt but the bionic is way more powerful then both. Question is if u want 4g or not.
