The real issue is Samsung's inability to make their software take full advantage of hardware under the hood. They definitely are focusing too much on the visual effects and not enough on the performance aspect. One could easily argue that HTC is focusing too much on the performance aspect and not enough on the battery life, but that a trade off that I'm willing to live with. My Thunderbolt puts up 1800+ consistently not to brag, but as I already stated the trade off is battery life. So the real question to you guys that are disappointed with the Droid Charge Benchmark scores, can you live with it? Then don't even sweat the benchmark score as it's just a number. We know that the phone looks very attractive, but I'm curious to know how the phone performs under normal circumstances.
