    On the fence between the two. I do get 4 g in my area. Just curius if tbolt has fixed most of its issues, because I do like the look and feel better then the charge. But the charges just as nice with the nicer screen. Why can't a company make a phone that was 4g, 1 gb ram dual proceser, amoloid plus and have no issues???? Wouldent it be nice.

    The list of problems I've read about don't seem to be quality but I do like the tbolt, just want a phone to last me the day or most of it and not reboot

    With the lte on/ off app you can switch between 3g and 4g whenever you want to, so you don't have to have 4g on all the time. When I have my thunderbolt on 3g the battery lasts about 12 to 14 hours, and I just switch to 4g when I want to download something fast

    No matter what battery life issues the Thunderbolt has right now its not gonna help it with battery life vs. the Charge.

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/samsung-droid-charge/144305-battery-life-3.html#post1530873

    Those are rated talk times for the phones. I dont want either, but if I had to choose between the 2 it would be the Charge just for the battery life. For comparison the Thunderbolt has a 1600 mAh battery and is rated for 6 hrs. 20 min.

    That will never be overcome with fixes. And if you put an extended battery in the Thunderbolt....imaging the battery life on the Charge when you do the same thing.

    Depends on what matters to you the most, performace or battery life. If you want performance then the TB is a no-brainer but if you want battery life and nicer screen, then the Charge is the way to go. Although if a LTE area, the battery will be poor for both phones.

    Charge sux. Has a great display and HDMI but only 512 MB ram...cheap plastic...no led notifications...and touchwiz is laggy as hell on it..it gets quadrants of 950...bolt gets 1800 stock. Reboot is caused by an ota that was sent out a week ago. It is being fixed. If u are buying now it will likely not have the ota on it....and u won't experience reboot. I'd get the bolt and a new battery before the charge. Its your money and your decision though.
