Review: Samsung Droid Charge
The calling application on the Charge is the same basic calling application that's found on most Android devices. It looks different only because Samsung chose to add a splash of color. The main phone page has a software keypad filling about half the screen. Call logs, contacts, and favorites are accessed by tabs spread across the top of the phone app. Dialing numbers is a snap.
The contacts application is the stock Android app, but again has been colored in a bit by Samsung to match the Charge's theme.
The Charge also includes a home screen widget that can be populated with shortcuts to up to nine buddies.
As with all Android handsets, the calling and contact applications continue to work well together
Samsung's baby is so new, it hasn't even been named yet, so we'll just call it the LTE 4G smartphone. We got hands-on time with the new phone at Verizon Wireless' CES press conference.
