The Android Charge is a pretty phone with futuristic styling and an evil eye from Lord of the Rings as its start-up display, but it doesn't seem to have much else going for it, at least according to Android Police.
"Using the DROID Charge is a lot like stepping into a Ferrari, starting it up, and putting the petal to the metal – only to find someone’s stuck the engine from a Corolla," writes David Ruddock, on the blog.
Unfortunately, the cool looking phone is bundled with Froyo TouchWIz and a lot of useless apps. This means a lot of screen lag. It also might have a few bugs. Here you can see Android Police's hands-on video of the phone, including the packaging that is so fancy it lead to an Apple lawsuit:
Since the above video didn't cover camera quality, here's a video of the phone's camera in action (before it was even named the Charge), courtesy of Mobiture:
Looks like a stylish phone with good hardware and not-so-fantastic firmware. We'll wait and see how it runs with a custom ROM...
