    for the Charge. First lines were:

    Just in time for Father's Day
    Meet the Droid Charge
    by Samsung
    Verizon's latest 4G LTE smartphone is loaded
    with everything Dad could ask for:
    • Super fast 1 GHz application processor.
    • Over 150,000 apps from the Android market.
    • 4.3" touch screen display and slim design.
    • Battery life of up to 11 hours.

    Ok, "Battery life of up to 11 hours" is not a selling point in my book :D

    That's pretty damn good for a 4g phone.

    Does the add offer any discount besides the $299 price? I really wanna give this phone a run but that price tag is steep. 199 on Wirefly.com but getting my upgrade from a different vendor makes me a little nervous, especially if I do end up not wanting to keep it and return it within the 2 week period. I just see that being a big cluster with getting my upgrade back.

    battery life will never compare to a non smart phone any time soon. i get 11hrs no problem with 50% left though.
    truth be told, the stock phone has alot of lag, and other minor issues that annoy me.
    flash a custom kernel and rom, its slicker than shyt.
    it makes my d2g look like something fred flinstone had.

    DANG!!! I went to one of my Best Buys and tried that and was told it had to be a brick and mortar place to get a price match. Guess I'll hit up a few different ones to see if the'll do it. Thanks for the info.
