It's the ultimate battle between Verizon flagship smartphones!  Aaron pits the Samsung DROID Charge against the HTC Thunderbolt.  Both support the carrier's 4G LTE network, and both are all around awesome phones.  The DROID Charge sports a 1 GHz Hummingbird CPU, 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, 8-megapixel camera, 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera for video calling, and Android 2.2 with Samsung's TouchWiz UI installed.  The Thunderbolt is powered by a 1 GHz Snapdragon CPU and offers a 4.3-inch display, 8-megapixel camera, 1.3-megapixel front shooter, and Android 2.2 with HTC's Sense UI.

You really can't go wrong with either one, but as always, only one phone can take home the dogfight medal.  Which one will it be?  Part 1 of 2.

Marti Ruiz Both suck i will chose galaxy s 2 with 1.2 gigaheartz dual core. 1 gb ram pretty fasf
Rudyboy Ledesma G2x or the HTC Sensation ftw, :D
Zach Cline The galaxy s2 will never see updates. Fascinate owners are just now getting froyo after waiting a year. And then there's the iOS knockoff suckwiz. No thanks.
Gerardo Ortega None, just pre-ordered my EVO 3D at Bestbuy, bigger Dual Core processors engine than does two phone put together.
Norleena Davies Samsung galaxy s2 will be coming to verizon later this year if not hopefully sooner. it will hit all carriers just like the previous version. IT IS GOING TO BE A SWEET PHONE. BEST HOLD FOR IT IF YOU CAN.
Micah Watkins But I like both the thunderbolt and the charge.
Micah Watkins Droid charge is a variation of the galaxy s II
Joel Cordova Monroy I want both wait no I want the droid charge no I want the htc thunderbolt nah I like the droid charge cuz of it's name and the boot up screen

Kendrick Taylor Samsung Charge
Mustafa Sidiqee Sensation or galaxy 3
Mustafa Sidiqee Stupid question to even ask
Tony Sakiri If these two phones could be in a celebrity based relationship, the Thunder bolt would be Chris Brown and the Charge would be Rihanna
Michael Comora HTC Thunderbolt
Olgun Özcan Thunderbolt because HTC supported your phone's long time. but samsung has bad service.
Stephanie Hitchcock @art ..download a radio app. Radio worldwide
Keith Howells Super amoled + im sure is nice..samsung support stinks and its an overclocked sgsI w lte radio.. TB ftw!!
Malcom Buckhannon 3G Droid X
Dan Daniel the Charge is cool but the Xperia PLAY will be the next phone in my pocket
Joe Czo I'd take the thunderbolt and the charge's battery lol
Schwin Hongladaromp Droid charge!!
Aldo Atemis @ John you are right! Droid Incredible 2 is awesome!
John Corfee droid incredible 2
Gabriel Fernandez Droid Bionic > Anything else Verizon has
Art Morris Hey Aaron! Which one has the better cellular radio? Since I travel a lot, the quality of reception is very important. Typically, Motorola's radios are a lot better than HTC's.......your thoughts?
Aldo Atemis @Frank the icrap4 sucks. Android already beat it just saying
Aldo Atemis @Frank ...
Nahtanoj Divad Htrab Neither of them. Because 4g is unstable. :/
Jordan Mosley I wish the Galaxy s2 will be coming to VZ, but it probably won't, at least for a while. Had the Thunderbolt, but returned it. I'm looking forward to getting the Charge for the amazing screen, thinner form, better camera, and decent battery life.
Michael Mcdaniel iPhone 4 verizon slams all the other ones they dont even compare
Brandon Worley It's a win win...seriously have u downloaded a song or video on our 4g LTE....this stuff is smoking fast
Joshua Bokelman I had the thunderbolt phone got jacked :( stuck back with my iCrap thunderbolt all the way but that screen on that samsung is bad ass
Darryl Mouzone Thunderbolt because I despise Samsung so much. I guess I can't really be fair because of my negative experience with a Samsung phone in the past and whenever I see any phone made by Samsung I automatically think it's crap.
Angel Miguel Peguero They all better then the iphone all it matters
Frank Pagel iPhone 4 FTW
Victor Perez Thunderbolt, more phone for your money. And HTC Sense. I would never consider a samsung phone.
Jimmy Duong Charge. 1600 mah. Over a day without charging. Enough said.
Kellye M. McGarrah My hubby has a thunderbolt, I would like to have the charge just to be different..lol I love verizon. Their CS is the best of all.
Stephanie Hitchcock iI have the bolt and its system is rather lagging. Not in a 4g area but that's irrelevant for its the system not connection. I need that iPad/phone contest to pull in :)
Aldo Atemis I forgot to add the Galaxy II thats the last one.
Chris Callahan Thunderbolt
?????? ????? MOTOROLA ATRIX 4G
Jamel Taylor I have an upgrade in August,so i have a chance to do some research
Aldo Atemis HTC EVO 3D, G2X, Thunderbolt then Nexus S 4G.
Ken Scott Kletzin That's why I'm with AT&T, because of terrible customer service experiences with Verizon & being overcharged.
Everett C W Byrd Samsung's new slogan should be "You're on your own".
Adrian Ma galaxy s 2 ftw
Jon Rasmussen Neither until VZW realizes how much they're overcharging for these things.
Antony Guan Galxsy s 2 ,lg g2x , and samsung infuse is better than both
Eric Crosby thunderbolt
Mina Morcos CHARGE (still waiting for the bionic tho...)
Marcos Pineda galaxy's11 better than both
