"This isn't a mid-range phone"5.0 starson by ewbell77
Pros: Feel in Hand
Hit the sweet spot in screen size
Boot Time (under 10 seconds)
Battery life (for an android)
Cons: 4G (But you don't want it yet, trust me)
Single Core processor (But you don't want it yet, trust me)
Summary: Why are people calling this a "mid-range" phone? It doesn't have a dual core processor? Oh, well lets go to the verizon store and get a dual core processor phone! Oh, they don't have any? Hmmmm. OK, well lets go to the verizon store and get a sleek 4G phone that isn't too bulky and has good battery life! Oh, they don't have any? Hmmmm. Wake up people, you want these cutting edge attributes but they are just not ready yet. Why do you think they delayed the dual core, 4G Bionic? We as consumers want giant screens, dual core processors, 4G speeds, and then we want to complain when the battery dies in 3 hours. What did you expect? Battery tech has fallen WAY behind everything else, and it needs to catch up or we will be tied to a charger at home, at work, and in the car with the new wave of devices coming out 3rd/4th quarter 2011.Cons: No dual core processor is what I meant to say, my blunder.
I used the Samsung Charge for two days and the Incredible 2 for two days as well. When the dust settled, I chose the Incredible, and it was an easy decision. I like charging my phone at night, and using it all day without fear. I won't get another 4G phone until the 2nd gen chipsets come out, because every 1st gen will be thick, bulky, 4.3" screen, and suck the juice. It just isn't ready yet. I may go dual core when they come out with one that isn't a retread of last years model (see 3GS, iPhone) like the Droid x2.
