Samsung Droid Charge the Unboxing Treatment
For anyone waiting for the Samsung Droid Charge to make an appearance in the stores, we have a little something to wet your appetite. An unboxing and hands-on review of the Droid Charge by SlashGear.
On April 21, 2011, I did an article about accessories and promo cards starting to show up for the Samsung Droid Charge and now with the appearance of this unboxing and hands-on review of the device, we could soon see a release. The unboxing and hands-on of the DROID Charge with the 4.3-inch WVGA Super AMOLED Plus display was conducted by Vincent Nguyen of SlashGear, who when he saw the device’s amazing display said he wanted to “weep like a little boy on Christmas morning,”
The Charge is the second in Verizon’s lineup 4G phones and does not have a dual-core processor, only the 1GHz chip as seen in the Galaxy S line and its currently only running Android 2.2 Froyo with TouchWiz on top, and has an 8-megapixel camera with LED-flash on the back, whilst on the front is a 1.3-megapixel camera.
The device has an angular shape, which sets it apart and a shiny chassis that is similar to the Samsung Galaxy S II. Vincent’s unboxing and Hands-on of the smartphone comes to us by way of AndroidCommunity and he goes on to say that the Droid Charge is very lightweight with four Android buttons low on its fascia, which makes it tricky holding the phone and pressing them with one hand.
The handset also features a dedicated search key, which has not been seen on the previous Samsung phones. Vincent indicates that the performance was not great, so with a price tag of $300 is it really worth it? Could the premium charge by Verizon be because the phone has LTE connectivity? Why not head on over to SlashGear to see the hands on video and then please come back and let us know what you think.
