    Droid 3 vs Droid Charge
    #1

    Please help me choose (droid 3 vs droid charge)

    I cannot choose between the Droid 3 or Droid Charge. This will be my first smartphone and touchscreen and am used to a physical keyboard but it is not to important (but I do kind of like the idea). I am not really technically advanced so I don't know what would be better the 4g 1 core processor or the 3g dual core processor. I want a phone that will last! I am leaning to Droid 3 but really want to weigh the options.


    Also things to add I am a very girly female, 20yrs old, and have a two yr old so photos/videos are always very important. And I don't want anything that has problems constantly (obviously) or is difficult to use!

    Charge might not be good to buy right now.. it's getting old. In addition, it only has 512 ram. Go for newer phones like HTC rezound, razr maxx, or galaxy nexus. I recommend razr maxx if you use your phone often. If you want no bloatware, then go for gal. Nexus. I believe google phones come with no bloatware. HTC rezound comes with beats earphones, so you could like it if you listen to music often. I hope it helps you choose.

    I forgot to mention the call quality. It can be terrible. I don't know if it's a Carrier issue or handset issue: I am not satisfied with my phones call quality. I have to repeat myself during calls. It gets frustrating.

    Thanks for your advice since you have a charge. I can only choose between the charge and the Droid 3.. and since I have had many people tell me the Charge is NOT good and read people saying the Droid 3 is great, I will go with that.

    Well charge is good. In fact it was the best phone in july through august. Now it's too old - single core and low RAM

    The Droid 3 is a very solid option. It'll be plenty good. Now the Droid 4 comes out on Friday and that has 4g, a dual core processor, and a physical keyboard. Essentially it is a 4g version of the Droid 3. It will 199.99 on contract.

    LTE is MUCH faster than 3G. If you can only choose between the two you have mentioned, think about all these deciding factors : 1. Call Quality (you should care) 2. Processor (# of cores, maker of processor - snapdragon? Ti?) 3. RAM (size of RAM is also very imporant) 4. Popularity (availability of accesories depend on it) 5. Network speed (evdo 3g speed is about 1 Mbps and LTE is about 8 Mbps)
    6. Durability 7. Camera (front and back or back only) 8. How often does the maker of the phone update the operating system ( don't expect fast updates from SAMSUNG or LG) 8. GPS (is it assisted gps? Or standalone gps?) 9. Miscellaneous

    I suppose it is, but I don't see us getting LTE in Montana before I get a new phone.:-(
    Having said that, I *love* my Charge! I don't miss a physical kb in the slightest, to me swype is much faster and more precise. NO need to do any of those stupid texting acronyms (like u for you, or 4 for four). It's actually quicker to swype the complete word!

    @Joemontana I love my charge too! I would NEVER choose droid 3 Over charge it's just way sexier. I mean the display can convince anyone. Super amoled plus!!!! That's why it is the best phone amomg single core LTE phones. THUNDERBOLT Dies too quickly. Some might say that they have extended battery. Even with the extended battery, droid charge probably preserves battery life much better. My friend has a thunderbolt which only receives 3G signal because it drains the battery in a couple hours on 4G. On my charge, I last 6 - 9 hours on LTE with moderate to heavy usage!!!
