Excerpt: NEEDS BETTER PROCESSOR! Cannot use many more demanding apps....This was my first real Smartphone (upgraded from blackberry), at first I was relatively happy as I love the android platform and variety of apps which all droid/iphone/window phone smartphones provide but the limitations of the phone quickly became obvious.
Pros: Great display, 4G is awesome
Cons: Processor is aweful! DON"T BUY! Go Dual Core, They call is Charge for a reason
Summary: I bought this product because of the 4G capability. What I love about this phone is the big screen and easy to navigate menu. The only downside to the phone is the battery. Depending on how much you use it, your battery will diminish. However, compared to other droids I like this phone.
Excerpt: This is not a terrible phone, but at the time of my upgrade, it WAS the best value out there. I did my homework before making the final choice and I would agree with most of these reviews. The phone gets the job done, but does not have any real WOW factor. The exterior of the phone is very slippery and has a very plastic feel.
Excerpt: The Droid Charge may not be the fastest phone, the thinnest phone, or even the prettiest phone. It may not have the latest version of Android, and it may not have great battery life. But it was, and is, a phone that rarely pisses me off. With my luck with phones, this is quite an accomplishment. The screen is rather nice, and one of the main reasons I bought the phone over LCD-clad competitors.
Pros: Beautiful screen, Android 2.3, Good front-facing camera
Cons: Mediocre battery life, Interface lag, Cheap parts
4G, AMOLED and reliable, short battery and lacking power though

Summary: My phone recently broke and I needed an upgrade to keep my Unlimited Data plan, the Charge offered AMOLED display technology and 4G speeds at an affordable price. While that is great in itself, it lacks in other areas like RAM, CPU power and battery life. The Charge actually drains the battery roughly 2-3x faster than my HTC Rhyme once did on a stock battery.
Summary: Great phone! Have always loved it and would suggest it to anyone. The screen on this phone is better than any phone out there. The colors make it look as though it has 3D features. The battery life is ok, but after a while it seems to get worse and worse. I just bought an extra battery and charger and I don't seem to have a problem.
Summary: Although it's not dual core like some phones, it's for the most part plenty fast. The occasional glitches are not enough to ruin the phone they are not that big of a deal. Overall a very nice phone for the price ($99.99 when I got it).
Pros: Excellent Screen, Easy user interface, good size/weight, excellent internet speed and reliability with verizon 4g lte
Cons: camera isn't very good, occasionally a bit laggy, resets sometimes
For the price of this phone on eBay, it is definitely worth a good look

Summary: I have tried all of Verizon's single core 4G LTE phones, and my conclusion: The Droid Charge gives you the most bang for your buck. The Droid Charge is pretty lightweight, especially because of the plastic build. The phone feels good in my hands, and the actual buttons at the bottom of the phone are to my liking. Call quality on the charge is very good. Phone calls sound crisp and clear, and reception is pretty consistent with other Verizon phones I have owned.
If you can sacrifice battery life, I would not look at any other phone.

Summary: I've been a android user for about a year. My original phone was a Droid X. Then I went to the iPhone 4. I can honestly say this phone blows both of them out of the water by a long shot. Verizon LTE is incredibly fast. The phone iteself is very quick, multitasks without a hiccup. Super Amoled + screen is in a league of its own. It is just remarkable. Samsung has done some great things to the boring android user interface. Biggest drawback is the battery life.
