    Just came back from checking out the charge at VZW. i have to say, i was going in with pretty low expectations seeing as how it is running old hardware inside. however, i was actually quite pleased.

    apps opened up quickly (downloaded ATK and killed all running apps) (did phone, camera,market, pulse ect)
    everything ran very smooth ("3d" games)
    scrolling was pretty good, there was some lag, but not much. downloaded Launcher Pro to give it a try, and the lag was gone.
    camera took great pics
    screen is VERY saturated....but it was beautiful. however, i would have liked to see it be bit brighter on auto brightness.
    droid-life.com opened up fully in about 10 seconds, my DX took 20 or so.
    pinch to zoom was great. FLASH worked great
    the physical buttons were VERY nice. 10x better than my DX's buttons.
    the phone itself, actually felt pretty good. had nice weight to it, it was a little wider than my DX, but surprisingly thin.

    coming from my gingerbread DX OC'd to 1.25ghz, the charge was right on target with speed. i was quite impressed, and if i was up for an upgrade, it would be hard for me to hold off buying the charge today. with a custom kernel and a vanilla froyo/GB rom, this phone would be AMAZING....as it sits right now, it is just VERY VERY GOOD.

    ^^^This. I'm at the edge of a 4g area and I get about 9mbps and around 1mbps(if even) on 3g. The difference is night and day. I haven't tried in DC yet but I imagine it would be much faster.

    Downloading songs and apps in less than a second is awesome. Once you start drinking the good wine its hard to go back.

    Does anyone know how much available ram the Charge has. When you hold home on your Charge and go to task manager and ram what is the max?

    When I ran the Quadrant on this phone in the Verizon Store. I got a score of 950. That is the same score my stock Incredible got. I'm not sure how you guys say this is equivalent to the Droid X.

    Quadrants are not all too accurate on Samsung phones, as it is not on my fascinate...because of the way the kernel works I believe.

    But I agree, that is slow and ram is low. But it seem quite snappy in real world use. The fascinate (which has same processor) gets a low quadrant until a different kernel is introduced through rooting. If this phone gets root and a custom voodoo kernel then it could achieve over a 1500 quadrant.

    But the specs are still too low for me on this phone, it has the same processor and ram as fascinate. Also one should not have to root to achieve speed in this day and age of fast processors.

    Honestly, I would wait. End of May, there are 3 phones.....supposedly.....coming out with Verizon. There will be the Droid 3....though it does look like a stupid iPhone now. But it has a lot of cool features and is duel core. Also coming out on the same day...again...supposedly, is the Droid X2. Major downfall to those though is neither are 4g LTE.

    But on that note, there is the LG Revolution that is suggesting a duel core 4g alternative.

    I really believe that the smart person would just wait, unless your phone is broken. Even then, like most said, just buy a Droid X for right now. I see a lot of changes coming within the next couple of months to the phones coming out and what they have to offer. Just my opinion though.

    LG Revolution is single core, 512 ram with Bing and only 2.2. http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...-may-26th.html

    Verizon is releasing crappy 4g phones.

    I wont trust 4G until I see some positive battery life feedback from any of them before I would jump on that bandwagon. I guess you could turn turn 4G off and go 3G as an alternative.

    Phone broke here so I had limited opinions, charge it was.

    I really screwed myself with the system update. Rooting is harder now.
