    I've always liked anadtech's reviews... they are never out that quick, and they go through an insane amount of detail. In particular in this one you get a lot of things like samoled+ subpixel patterns, LTE radio analysis, etc.

    A good read - Droid Charge Review: Droid goes LTE

    That's a fantastic review but I do wonder if the reviewer realizes that the consumer doesn't care about how "efficient" a phone is with power.

    The fact of the matter is that the Charge will last longer on a single charge than the Thunderbolt will. God knows, this forum is thick with former Thunderbolt owners.

    HTC made a stupid decision to put a tiny battery in their phone and that decision has cost them.

    Is that because the standby life is better? I don't understand why the Charge pulls up the rear in almost every battery life test on that review; I would expect it to beat the other LTE phones, based on the specs.

    I was wondering that too. They talk a lot about efficiency, which I agree is not that important in-and-of-itself, but at the same all those baat life tests were done with the phones themselves so the larger battery of the Charge was already factored in.

    The results show a different story than peoples reports in forums.

    Also, (and I dont remember if it was in this review or the LG Rev review, but the Tbolt was shown to have pretty good signal sensitivity, even though HTC usually gets panned for poor reception.

    While I respect the voices of people that have had both units, I also have a lot of respect for Anands thoroughness in reviewing gadgets.

    I do think the reception on the TB is better then on the Charge. I find myself in areas that I got 4G before, getting 3G now. I don't really care that often but sometimes I like to stream heavy things and I KNOW I should have 4G considering I work in Los Angeles where 4G is widespread.
