    When I got my TB, the Charge, Revolution and DX2 were just around the corner. I did my research and decided that the TB was my best bet, but there was a nagging worry that when these other phones came out I would regret my choice.

    So, a couple of days ago I went into my local Verizon store and spent a lot of time playing with each of them, I even installed Launcher Pro to see how it worked (I did remove it after), and did nearly every experiment I could think of.

    The simplest way to put it is: I came away even happier with my Thunderbolt!!

    Charge: too light, screen is nice, but seems over-saturated, TouchWiz is way too annoying.

    DX2: really don't like the physical buttons, and it actually seems less smooth, which tells me that until the OS and apps are optimized for dual core, the extra RAM in the TB is more important.

    Revolution: actually would be my second choice, but the 5 MP camera was a drawback and I could not find the RAM, which made me nervous! :0)

    So, despite a few issues (luckily I am rarely rebooting), I came away feeling oddly relieved.

    I love those moments. I felt the same way.

    That trust factor is one of the reasons I went with the TB. My wife and daughter both have DINC's and we have been very happy with them.
