By Gary Johnson - May 26, 2011

The Android platform is expanding at a fast rate, and Verizon’s Droid brand was once exclusive to devices made by HTC and Motorola. Today with have an article looking at the bionic speed of the Droid Charge and Verizon’s LTE network tested.

Mike Isaac of Wired.com has spent some time with the new Samsung handset, and found the devices screen despite its 4.3 inch size grew on him. Using the Amazon Kindle app allowed for a better reading experience. The handset also feels lighter than you may expect, and actually weighs around 5 ounces.

When using the device on the 4G network the speed tests averaged 7.5 to 8.6 Mbps when downloading, while uploading returned speeds of 5.6 to 6.3 Mbps. The handset cameras are 8-megapixel on the back and 1.3-megapixel on the front, and images were found to be pretty good.

The Samsung surprisingly comes running Android 2.2 and has a variety of pre-installed apps. Overall the handset was a decent enough device but if you are not into Samsung cell phones the HTC Thunderbolt or LG Revolution may be more to your liking.
