This is Part 3 of a multi-part review of the Samsung Droid Charge. Part 1 covers the hardware, while Part 2 discusses the software.


In theory, the Samsung Droid Charge is a high-quality phone. Its screen is one of the most beautiful that I’ve ever seen, the processing power is respectable, and it’s one of the few devices that’s available on Verizon’s esteemed 4G LTE network. In practice, however, the Charge is a slightly different story.

Samsung Droid ChargeIt’s still a very good phone and isn’t bad by any means, it just doesn’t live up to expectations: the 4G LTE speeds aren’t very impressive, the phone comes loaded up with a ton of mostly useless apps and widgets just cluttering it up, and the battery life is positively dreadful. And for those for whom it may be an issue, the screen that makes the phone so great is also the cause of its extremely large size. 

The Droid Charge is a fine phone and the display is almost reason alone to buy it, just be aware that there are a handful of noticeable drawbacks.


  • Outstanding screen
  • Smooth performance
  • Good call and camera quality


  • Gigantic
  • 4G LTE kind of a letdown
  • Horrendous battery life
