The Samsung Droid Charge has the best display that we’ve seen on a mobile phone. We found it even superior to the iPhone 4’s Retina Display. The screen is crisp and clear. Colors pop and details are a delight to the eye. Combine that with a...

The DROID Charge is an excellent device. We absolutely love the Super AMOLED Plus display, and while we still prefer stock Android, TouchWiz isn’t too bad. It will leave a huge dent on your wallet though — at $300, it ain’t cheap. If...

The Samsung Droid Charge has a lot of good things going for it, including 4G connectivity and a gorgeous Super AMOLED Plus display. We also appreciate that the Droid Charge is significantly lighter than Verizon Wireless' other 4G phone, the HTC...

I'm confused. What makes Samsung's Droid Charge (which is finally shipping after a 16-day delay) a Droid? At first, you might think that a Droid is an Android phone that's sold by Verizon Wireless. But not all Verizon Android phones are...
