In addition to using the Samsung Droid Charge in a variety of everyday usage scenarios, we also conducted some formal performance testing to see how well the Droid Charge compares to other smartphones.

In the Linpack test, the Samsung Droid Charge came in near other Samsung phones including the Nexus S, Galaxy S 4G, and Epic 4G.  These results were middle of the road and not quite up to speed with some of the new smartphones out there. However, in the An3DBench graphics test, the Droid Charge earned the top spot, edging out the Kyocera Echo by a mere 0.06 fps. Though, in the An3DBench XL test, the Droid Charge didn't score quite as well, coming in behind our other reference systems, most of which are tablets (since we're still compiling data for this new version of the benchmark). It's worth noting that the Droid Charge actually outperformed the only other smartphone in our reference (the Kyocera Echo) in two of the three tests shown here. The Droid Charge also earned a respectable score in the SunSpider JavaScript benchmark coming in behind the Kyocera Echo, HTC Thunderbolt, and HTC EVO 4G.
