    This is pretty a smaller Epic 4G for Verizon.

    Hello. Slow choppy phone. I had a phone with 1ghz Hummingbird processor and 512mb of ram. It was called the Fascinate and it was released a year ago and took 9 months to get Froyo. The Epic 4g and Charge have all pretty much the same internals. They are re-hashes of Galaxy S1 phones but with 4g. I can tell you that having the Fascinate made me hate Android and I wanted to switch to Apple. Luckily I went with the Inc2 and realized that Android can be awesome if you get the right device.
