A Bit Disappointing

by DavidNJ    May 3, 2011, 12:13 AM

Several reviews including this one comment on the sound quality, after all, it is a phone! When using the front camera you are likely to be using the speaker/mic, and it appears as a phone it falls a bit flat.

The inability to switch back to 4G would be a dramatic problem, one not reported for the HTC Thunderbolt. As 4G rolls out the ability to be agile switching between networks would be essential.

Not reported here, but reported several other places, is a rather slow speed. Noticeably slow in some browsing, more so than competitors. Some improvement was gained by turning off JavaScript, but what is the point of that? I'd be lighter if I cut off a leg, but rather useless if I wanted to be lighter to run faster. Same here.

Out of the mainstream people have rooted and modified the various Galaxy S models. However, although a Galaxy S, the Droid Charge is different enough that modifications would be unique to it. As the last of the single core Galaxy S models, before the dual core Galaxy S II later this year, it may be an orphan for improvements.

I was all set to get this phone...now...I don't know.
