"Best bang for the buck."4.5 starson by corki2
Pros: Excellent signal, excellent call quality, Sense UI, great camera, beautiful design, excellent build quality, perfect size, gorgeous display.
Cons: Battery is like any other 4g. Though I can get 12 hours if I don't play with it constantly.
Summary: I love everything about this phone. A lot of people don't like Sense. I love it. I had to put a custom ROM on my Droid X to get it to do what the Rezound does straight out of the box. Toggles in notification bar, native screen shots, reboot from the power button. Oh and I almost forgot to mention widget scrolling on the native home screen, this is a huge plus. As for the 78 widgets available.. I like 'em!
The call quality is excellent. I love being able to hear my callers through the handset. With the Droid X (don't get me wrong, I love my X) you had to move the phone around to get it in just the right place over your ear in order to hear the caller. Callers come through loud and clear on the Rezound no matter where you position it. I also use a CommandOne BT headset and the call quality through it is great as well.
I love the screen on this phone. I took it over to Verizon to compare it to the Nexus when it launched. Viewing the same web site with both, the Rezound looked much nicer.
I use my camera and video a lot. That was what interested me in this phone originally as the camera got such good reviews. I had planned on getting the Nexus and was disappointed the reviews the camera was getting. The Droid X had a so so camera. Hit or miss. Sometimes the pics were beautiful, sometimes horrible. I am happy to say the Rezound camera is great.
This phone is fast. I have no lag when using Sense. I did find that when I put Go Launcher, ADW or QQ Launcher, it gets choppy. No worries, I like Sense better anyway.
This is my first HTC phone. I love the build quality. It looks and feels great. The attention to details that HTC put into this build is surprising. Motorola build quality is excellent, but they look boxy and plain compared to my Rezound. It's sturdy and sexy.
I love the native print feature. I use my phone for business and I think it's about time Android phones start catching up with BB in that regard.
I was pretty well set on the Nexus when it was announced. After I started reading more on the specs, I started looking at all the 4g phones at Verizon. There, obscured by the Razr (I would never own a phone with a non removable battery)and the upcoming Nexus, was the Rezound. Information wasn't jumping out all over the place about it. Even the salesman at Verizon asked me if I knew about the Razr when I told him I wanted the Rezound. Why this device was downplayed is beyond me unless they were concerned that sales for the Razr and Nexus would be jeopardized if people knew how great the Rezound is. The salesman did finally admit that the Rezound is the top dog and would probably be for a while. I'm just glad I did my research and picked the best phone available on the Verizon network.
