The Samsung Droid Charge sure is one capable 4G LTE-enabled smartphone. It’s a high-end device, and one of a select few to be able to operate on Verizon’s LTE network, which is the fastest in the US.
So this is a device that probably many of you wish you owned. Yet Verizon came along and made everyone miserable when it announced the official price for the Droid Charge – $299.99 – with a new two-year contract, no less. That’s $100 more than the usual price for high-end smartphones, and even $50 more than Verizon’s price for the HTC ThunderBolt, another LTE phone.
Well, when a carrier acts like that, there are always the independent third-party retailers there to brighten up your day. For example, Amazon had the phone at $250 from the beginning, which wasn’t an extraordinary deal, but it still saved you $50.
And now the retailer has gone even lower, offering the Droid Charge for just $129.99. A new two-year contract is required, of course.
Amazon isn’t the only retailer that now offers this device so cheap. Wirefly will sell you one for the same $129.99, if you prefer to get your gear from there.
This by far the cheapest we’ve seen the Droid Charge up until now, so if you’ve been saving up to buy one, perhaps now is the time to act. After all, $129.99 is a lot less than even your average (read: non-LTE) high-end smartphone goes for.
The Samsung Droid Charge for Verizon has a 4.3-inch 480×800 capacitive touchscreen, a 1 GHz Samsung Hummingbird processor, an 8 MP autofocus rear camera with LED flash and video recording, a secondary front-facing 1.3 MP camera, microSD card support, LTE, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a 1600 mAh battery.
