For those of you frustrated with your TB I can understand. When VZW got the DINC I didnt feel left behind anymore. I beat that phone, dropped it in the water, rooted it, loved it...then the TB came and I had to have it. Mostly for the screen size and slightly better performance. I am from Maine and I wasnt counting on LTE for a while.
So the love affair started and once the honeymoon was over...you get the drift.
So I complained and got a new TB, same problems, complained some more and got the Charge.
What I most feared was loosing SenseUI. But the following tweaks gives me a phone that I love just as much as my TB but without the probs.
Launcher Pro Plus, Dialer One, Flashlight.
Short list I know but these make it comparable to my experience with Sense. I still havent found a Weather/Clock widget I like yet though.
So here is my over all experiences so far.
Screen as you know is amazing, I can actually see it outside. Battery is a lot better. GPS and Nav work much faster, swype and the stock keyboard i really like, screen rotation is super fast.
No data while on a call (this sucks),hard buttons, speaker performance but the TB wasnt that great, photos seem a little grainy(havent taken a lot), no kick stand but my case has one, very light in a way that doesnt allow you to cradle so your thumb cramps?? No FM radio.
Overall I am very happy with the phone and dont feel I traded down. I use the phone for my business and rely on it primarily for calls, maps, nav, gmail, calendar. I think HTC can build better phones than it did with the TB but for me the Charge is reliable and consistent, for now lol.
When HTC makes another phone with a 4.3" (5" and I will love them forever) screen or larger I will likely buy it. The HTC feels like a better built phone they just need to work out the bugs first.
