    I'm up for an upgrade tomorrow and think I'm going to pull the trigger on the Droid charge but I'm a little worried about the size. How much bigger is the overall size compared to the OG Droid?

    Thanks

    Join date November 2009 - and this is your first post - Nice ;)


    The Charge is a pretty big phone in comparison to the D1 - I held them side by side in VZW a few days back...if you have ever held a DX it compares well to the Charge at 4.3"

    I upgraded from the OG Droid two weeks ago. I hesitated because I felt that the Charge felt "cheap" in my hand compared to the OG Droid, it is lighter while being bigger and plastic. I actually bought a dual case, silicone sleeve with a hard case over that. I actually feel it is a perfect size to weight ratio now. Picked up my OG Droid last night for the first time in two weeks and couldn't believe how small it is and that I was happy with it for nearly two years. The only downsize on the size so far has been that it doesn't fit in the small pocket on my cargo shorts. Slight inconvenience at work but not too bad.
