    I'm in the midst of switching from Metro to Verizon for various reasons and I want to continue with a 4G experience.
    I was leaning towards the Droid Charge and the overall consensus is that it's not worth it and that the Thunderbolt is better.
    Then I figured I'd check out the Thunderbolt and its forum does the same thing while saying that the Charge is the way to go.

    So, word to the wise...when looking for opinions on phones here at the forums, go to its closest counterpart to best make your decision.

    In my opinion, neither is worth the money, so there you go.

    That's why everyone needs top shop based on personal criteria rather than consensus. The latter is only helpful if popularity if your top priority when shopping. Popularity and your needs/wants are not the same thing.

    Worth is always highly subjective no matter what the topic might be.

    Right!!! There's a lot of, let's say, passion involved with these things, and a lot of opinions are highly based on some kinda over the top idealism.

    Forget it, I'm not gonna get the Thunderbolt. I was in a funk and fell into the grips of desperation after a failed attempt at getting laid...I wasn't thinking clearly. I'm just gonna wait for the Bionic probably.

    You seem like the weirdo the tb forum is most def in support of the tb over the charge. You must have not bothered to read past the title of threads.

    You may be waiting a while for the bionic, from what I hear LTE and dual core isn't working well together

    Anyway, I've been with the Charge for more than 3 weeks and I LOVE IT!!!

    And I did read plenty of the TB threads beyond the titles and for what I want out of my phone was something the TB could not deliver. Its battery is no match for my data hogism.

    2 of my coworkers have the TB. They come into work with more battery life than my Charge, do almost nothing with it and are in red in way before the end of the work day...I'm playing with my phone any chance I get and most of the time I don't need to charge it until bedtime.

    If the TB had as good a battery life as the Charge I would have probably gotten it...money's a little tight ya know. But I wanted to upgrade my experience from my Indulge.

    And I couldn't give 2 sh!ts about popularity. All my fellow sales people dislike or even hate Samsung.

    I'm not a huge fan of the Charge's industrial design personally. I also am not a big fan of Samsung phones as I've had several problems with them in the past and I know others around here have as well. If it were me and I were between the two, I'd choose the TB because I'm a big fan of HTC. The choice of course is ultimately up to you. Just remember that it's very likely Verizon is changing to tiered data plans soon (looks like it will be July 7) so it'd be best to get your plan before then to be sure you get unlimited data.
