Droid Incredible 2 vs. Droid Charge and HTC Thunderbolt

Member

I just got a new job and one of the perks is that you can get a nice phone and an unlimited plan for cheap. The phone options are the Droid Incredible 2, the Droid Charge and the HTC Thunderbolt. Which should I choose?

Apart from things that are opinions (which are of course important), there are two major questions:

 

1) Will you use the phone in a 4G area and want 4G speeds?   If so, that rules out the DINC2

2) Will you use the phone abroad in GSM land?  If so, the only option of the three is the DINC2!

 

If you don't need 4G or GSM, then it is wide open, and I will let others voice their opinions!

There is no 4G in my area, and as of right now I have no plans to be abroad.

With no 4G in your area, I'd suggest going with the dinc2. Everyone I've talked to with either the Charge or Thunderbolt has told me that their battery life is garbage. I have the dinc2 and after a full day (14-16 hrs) of medium-heavy use (navigation, phone calls, texting, browsing internet and Facebook) I usually have 40-50% battery left at 11 o'clock.

The Incredible 2 only cost $20 to $30 at Costco, new line or renew same price.

Interesting. The Charge has the longest battery life on paper...

 

I'm probably going to go with the Charge. I was thinking of doing the Thunderbolt and extended battery, but my manager told me not to get it as he was told by the Verizon rep not to get it because it has so many issues...and after playing with them each a bit, the TB and Charge were the ones that felt best. I actually didn't like the Dinc3 much.
