    I am eligable for a new upgrade in June and I currently have the Samsung Continuum. I love the Touchwiz interface and would like to get anther Samsung device with Touchwiz interface but with 4G capabilities. How good is the Droid Charge? Or should I look for a different phone? Thanks in advance!!!:biggrin:

    Its an old phone. I would wait for the Galaxy SIII to drop. Should be in a few months.

    I'm not really looking to drop a lot of money on a phone.

    Yeah I've read the reviews too, but I want Touchwiz on my phone, which the Galaxy Nexus doesn't have because it's a Google phone.

    Well the gs3 is an assumption since VZW supposedly passed on the gs2 to make room for the gnex.

    How about the stratosphere? Is that VZW? It has touchwiz.

    Yes the stratosphere is 4G and Verizon. I might end up going Motorola. Motorola seems to be the best.

    The charge is decent phone for the price tag. I think I paid best buy 70 after trading in my old phone and that was 4 months ago. 4g is nice but the data is limited by the single core processor. The battery life is solid as far as 4g phones go, the lte crushes the guts out of just about any battery. Its a solid phone for light to moderate users. I would definitely bite the bullet and shell out the cash for the nexus. What about touchwiz do you like? I would bet that any of the features that you like about tw can be added to the nexus through free apps

    I like the UI such as the messaging style and the puzzle lock screen.

    I got the charge when it first came out, then it went to my son when he thought he wanted an iPhone (I wanted him to try Android first). He loved it and is a committed Android user. Now my other son has it. I used it for over 6 months b4 passing it on to my sons. Not a single one of us have had any problems with it. Great phone reception, great display, decent battery life (10-14 hrs on a charge with normal use), no problems going from 3g to 4g, no lag even with 100's of apps. It is a great phone, second to my Razr.

    If I had to pick a new android phone on Verizon right now it would be the Rezound. The Charge is a mediocre phone overall. The average reviews on the verizon website tell the story, read them and see what I mean.
