Summary: I was waiting for the Galaxy Nexus, but after each rumor I became less and less anxious for the Nexus, so I sucked it up and bought the Rezound, and I'm very pleased I did.Update: I've had the phone for about a month now, I'm still learning the phone, but I operate it pretty fluently. I've found the camera to be very good, for pictures at least, I haven't taken video. The battery is also pretty good, under pretty heavy use I still only need it to charge over night, only if I'm playing video games on it does the battery need charged through the day.
The Rezound's screen is gorgeous, 720p on a 4.3 in. screen is really something that needs to be seen to be believed.
The audio is fantastic, really it was one of the biggest selling points for me because I hate being without my music and I couldn't pass on Dre iBeats. The audio is great, perhaps Cnet is correct when they say that you can get similar quality with any pair of high end ear buds, but how many people want to buy a $300 phone and then buy $150 headphones?
When I said that the phone was thick, all I mean is that it is thicker than its Verizon competitors like the Razr and Galaxy Nexus, especially when I put it in my Otterbox, then it seems to double in size. When I have the Otterbox on it actually makes it more difficult to text in landscape, I can feel my thumbs stretching.
The processor is very quick, I've yet to have any sort of lag when opening apps or switching between them, even when I have a dozen apps open and looking through web pages. The battery is even holding up pretty well, I'm constantly doing something on this phone, be it music or angry birds or web browsing and I can make it through my on campus activities no problem and then I charge it while I sit at my computer for good measure, so no complaints really.
I do not like the headphone jack being on the top of the phone, I'm just not comfortable pulling it out of my back pocket like that, HTC should know better than that.
The volume rocker is very flush with the phone, I'm not used to this, I prefer the rocker to be split and a little thicker, just a personal preference.
Call quality is good, although I don't use it for phone calls very much.
I think this is a great phone, it could use some tweaks, but when ICS is out this will rival the Galaxy Nexus.
