Samsung DROID Charge

Last updated: Apr 14th, 2011.

The Samsung Droid Charge was the 2nd phone released in a lineup of 4G LTE enabled smartphones for Verizon's network.

It comes with a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen (no more Pentile Matrix), physical buttons just beneath the screen, 8MP rear camera/ 1.3MP front-facing camera, HDMI-out, and 1GHz Hummingbird processor. It launched with Android 2.2 and came with a 16GB micro sd card.

The Samsung Droid Charge will definitely have a hard time flying under the radar. It could, however, fly past competition with Verizon's lightning fast 4G LTE speeds.
