""Real-World" User Review"5.0 starson by PharmerMike
All around look and feel
Cons: Slight learning curve (Motorola DX to HTC Android)
Physical Buttions (see review)
No changing to sound profiles from lock screen
Summary: So I'll start with the bad. There is one physical button on the top so unlocking the phone is not as intuitive/easy as say with a Motorola phone. There is no option to switch sound profiles (i.e. full sound to vibrate only) from the unlock screen and thus, not as easy or convenient. The HTC version of Android is a little to get used to coming from something such as Motorola. Also, there are some issues like changing widget size that have been a knock on HTC before but not that big of a deal.
Now the good...and as I mentioned above, BATTERY is a PRO. Why? Well I'm the average person, not the "super-multimedia, streaming movie, listening to music 20/24 hours, playing games, and downloading 14GB of pics use." This phone has not let me down battery wise for what I call, real-world-average-Joe smartphone user. This means, 1-2 hours total of phone calls, about 10-20 text messages, read a few emails, browse facebook, get a couple of facebook sessions in, and listen to a few songs on pandora on the way to work --- have not had an issue in 2 weeks. Combine this with the fact that I use drug referencing software and a calculator app to do my job...and you get a decent battery. No, this isn't the iPhone 46 hour battery, but this is a good battery, remembering all the while that you get 4G and a half again better processor and I think you have a beast that can eat an iPhone for a mid-afternoon snack.
I was very concerned about the battery since this would be my primary picture device. The Mrs. has an iPhone and I can truly say I like the Rezound's better. It's quick, has many options found on a real camera and is all around a great phone camera. Not a D-SLR but we aren't reviewing that now are we?
If you want a phone with 4G and will kick some serious but...this is the one to get. Battery will get the average user through a full day. Trust me, I've burned through an iPhone in less than 5 hours once when I was at the DMV so any phone will not last you if you are constantly on it. You get an awesome screen and incredible capabilities. I was on the ropes between this, the Razr and the iPhone 4s and I can seriously say I have no regrets. Wanted a 4G phone, like the Android system, wanted a good screen, but the camera is what pushed it over the edge versus the Razr.
