If this phone came out back when it was time for my upgrade i would have chosen it over the Charge. Honestly i just can't stand not having a QWERTY keyboard. While the touch screen keyboard is nice i can't type anywhere near as fast as with a qwerty.
Also i know phones keep going for bigger screens and more power but in all honesty how much do you really need in a phone? Not to mention it seems like all the dual core phones coming out eat through battery life twice as fast as the single ones.
For people with a busy life style, need a qwerty and that can't be near a charger all day i think this is a great 4G option that isn't getting enough credit.
