    Not only was this phone 300.00 but its not worth it video is real nice pictures suck and no deticated camera button you need two hands to take a pic one to focus one to tap screen and on the web can't read anything too small when yoi make it biggee it don't auto fit text. Does anyone know a 4 g verizon. Droid with deticated camera button?

    AUTO FIT has to be selected in the browser's SETTINGS. You don't HAVE to tap the screen to focus, it will auto focus. I wish there was a dedicated camera button too... but I wouldn't say the phone was worse than the Droid X just because it doesn't have one. Besides you knew it didn't have a camera button BEFORE buying it, I wouldn't say you got SCREWED. You made the choice.

    If you want to take pictures faster there is a widget you can download that you just click and it takes a picture.

    The Droid X2 and Droid 3 don't have a camera button either. So its not just the Charge.

    Neither the Thunderbolt or the revolution have dedicated camera buttons either. Looks like you are out of luck on that front.

    Theres a mod for the X2 that allows you to set the search button (long press) to activate camera. Maybe look around and see if there's a similar mod for your phone.

    I went from droid 1 to HTC blunderbolt (great potential but too many bugs), to the charge! And I'd have to say I'm happy with the charge! If you want a professional camera buy a professional camera! It auto focuses and takes great pics! Yes it has bugs but its the lesser of two (or three) evils! My droid 1 loaded camera faster from a short cut than it ever did the button! and thwarting charge camera is lightyears better!!!!!!

    From what your saying, you made an impulse buy and now you have buyers remorse. Return it an activate your older device. Wait until Christmas (its right around the corner) you'll be very happy.

    Is it just me but i can barely understand or read anything other than you don't like your new phone. Return it if you don't like it or do you just want to complain awhile?

    EmanP223 do you have a samsung charge? I am taking it back its not a good phone the droid x was a great phone is your phone perfect? This phone you need two hands to take a pic you can't hear videos the speaker not loud the screen has perfect color sitting in the same chair it don't connect to wifi that the droid x had a good signal on people know I have a differnt phone because they can't hear me poor battery. Life its a bad phone its an
    It cost too much for too little its more a warning than whining I hope your still not confused I'm comparing the charge to the droid x and the thunderbolt both get better signal both you can take pics with one hand but the picture is nice man its nice

    I agree with EmanP223 on this, especially after your last post. It is just one big run-on sentence and is nearly impossible to decipher. I don't mean to be rude, but you really need to try using some better grammar and sentence structure in your posts.

    That being said, I have a Droid Charge, and am very happy with it. Is it perfect? No. However, it is a definite upgrade over my last phone (Touch Pro2), and much better than the Thunderbolt I tried before it.
