Droid 4 Versus Samsung Charge

  A Little Background As many of you know, I’ve been slowly pulled to the dark side and use both a macbook and IPad.  I still use an android phone though so I have not been completely subsumed.  About 18 months ago, I started using a Samsung Charge.  A very pretty 4G Verizon phone with a great screen, single core processor and no keyboard.  Three months ago, I finally gave in and replaced with with a Droid 4 with a keyboard.  I just could not get use to no keyboard. Well, today, biking down Mt. Hamilton (an 18 mile descent), I believe my Droid 4 jumped from my pocket and is somewhere on the road.  So, I went home, got my old Samsung Charge and took it to Verizon to reactivate it.   Samsung Charge … Continue Reading

SPRINT Samsung Epic 4G First Impressions / HTC EVO Returned Yesterday

      A Little History Let me start off by saying that the HTC EVO has raised my expectations of what to expect from a smart phone.  About two years ago, I switched to one of the first Android phones that came out.  It had a very clunky keyboard slideout, it was very heavy, the interface was awkward and overall it was just not a good user experience.  Even things like GMail did not work well.  You could not do basic things like go from one email to the next without returning to the inbox first. Fast Forward 18 months.  I have a Palm Pre which I’m pretty happy with.  It has a nice keyboard, nice email client for Microsoft Exchange, and though not many apps, it’s a pretty nice phone.  … Continue Reading
