    Hello all, first post here, I currently have a Thunderbolt, it was replaced by Asurion around a month ago, and since then the battery has been terrible, only getting around 2 hours of being on the phone, I called to ask if something could be done about this. Asurion sent me a brand new Thunderbolt overnight, I got it today, and the brand new Thunderbolt is DOA. I called Asurion and spoke to them, and they advised me they can switch this out and REQUEST another new Thunderbolt, Charge, or Droid 3 to replace the Thunderbolt. I live in Wilmington NC where 4G is active, so I hate to lose that, but kind of looking around, the Droid 3 would seem to be the nicest option to go with, but looks like it does not have 4G, anyone else have suggestions for me?

    The Charge is hard on the battery, but I still love it.

    I would narrow it to Charge or D3. My wife has a Charge and loves it and has had no issues. D3 is a solid option as well. Depends on whether you want that 4g Speed.

    Not even asurion wants to sell revolutions. I'd say try to pressure them into giving you a bionic. Its a great phone that you actually may have a small chance of talking them into.

    Also, batteries are a warranty issue. I have no idea how you managed to get to asurion without them demanding you go through the warranty process with vzw

    I would go with the Droid 3...at least it is Dual Core. Dual Core > 4G IMO. Also, it has higher resolution (qHD) and better pixel density.

    The Thunderbolt does have more RAM though, and RAM is a bigger deal than I used to think it was. And it is 4G. And it's front camera is better. So it'd be a tough choice.

    But I think I'd still go with the Droid 3.

    Yeah, Bionic is better than any of those.

    Only thing the Charge has is Super AMOLED...other than that I cant think of anything the other phones dont do better.

    Another Tbolt is the best option imo.

    Well I have had the Charge for 2 weeks and I ended up upgrading to the Razr maxx because to me the Charge is slow seems slower then my Droid X before it. Its an okay phone but the battery dies fast and it has such low ram its laughable. It will run great for a while and then start to lag. Hope you find something you like!

    Be careful about going back to a 3G phone. If you have unlimited data, it may go away if you back-step to a 3G phone.
