RAZR v. Rezound Pros and Cons
12-21-2011 11:04 PM
- I think it's a two horse race between the RAZR and the Nexus. Although, the Rezound does come with nice headphones. The RAZR comes with no headphones. Honestly, it just comes down to personal preference. I like Motorola over Samsung and HTC, so I'm biased. I'd tell you to get the RAZR because of the foward thinking design, great hardware, and really stellar reception. People that are partial to HTC will tell you to get the Rezound, and people who are partial to Samsung will tell you to get the Galazy Nexus. I'm not sure the reasons they'd give, but I'm sure they would be valid. Gut feeling usually works best, but doing research doesn't hurt either. Are you leaning towards a particular phone already?12-17-2011 03:21 PM
Since all of these 4G LTE phones are battery hogs, I like the idea of a spare charged battery when traveling or outdoors when you can't recharge. Or just for me being forgetful and having the spare on hand to use because I fell asleep without plugging in my phone.
The Rezound sounds like a nice screen, too and it has a removable battery.
I really wanted a phone before the end of the month while VZ has the double the data promotion going on so I am trying to research quickly. So much to learn, thanks for your help!12-17-2011 03:34 PM

- For me the choice was RAZR for a couple reasons:
-After using SuperAMOLED screens I'll never go back to LCD, they just look washed out with white light and have bad viewing angles. Despite the Verge's panning of the RAZR's screen I think its one of the best looking displays on the market.
-The Rezound seemed too thick and heavy to hold.
-As others have mentioned Sense is a CPU and Battery glutton, Blur is very light on the RAZR.
-Smart Actions App is very useful.
-Beats Audio only works in the stock music app.
-Razr's speaker is the best phone speaker I've ever heard.12-19-2011 09:31 AM
- For me, my decision started with brand name. I love Motorola. They build their phones very, very well, and they are significantly less destructible imo than the crappy plasticy phones that other companies make. I'm clumsy and drop everything and I just wasn't willing to risk it.
Secondly, I can't stand the UI that comes with HTC phones. I think it's ugly. But hey, some people like it. I like Moto because it's sleek and simple if you can ignore the blur (which, admittedly, drives me nuts).
Thirdly, it came down to the specifications and reviews. And... Well, just the beauty of the RAZR. It's just as lightweight as it is thin, but not in a cheap, I'm-gonna-split-in-half-and/or-shatter-if-you-sit-on-me way. The Rezound was huge in comparison. Not something I would want to have in my pocket. Yes, the RAZR is big, but it's not thick, and that makes it much better, at least to me. And don't get me started on that amazing screen. =)
You just have to decide which specifications and brand characteristics are most important to you. I might have gone with the Nexus if it wasn't made out of flimsy plastic. That screen is incredible and I would love to have ICS right now. But instead, I went with a brand that is tried and true, which I've had for years (and remembering back in the day, how long my flip phone Razr lasted me, even when I ran it over with my car, in the snow), and which got great ratings. You just gotta choose.12-21-2011 02:55 AM
- Rezound is nice but sounds like anyother phone with a 5 channel s curve. Beats headphones are way overpriced and sound like crap when compaired to bose, audio technica etc. Dont base you decision on the headphones or beats in the phone. Rezound is nice but its way to thick with subpar sound and a pair of over priced earbuds.12-21-2011 05:55 AM

- YourMobileGuruFormerly VZWRocksFrom someone who has all three devices:
Both phones are amazing and have comparable performance. Thae RAZR gets better cellular reception but the SIM card authentication error is getting irritating.
The screen on the Rezound is much more bright and vibrant and actually looks more realistic than Samsung screens.
If you're heavily into social networking or need exchange support you will be glad to have HTC Sense.
Camera is much better on the Rezound.
Thus far the non removable battery hasn't been an issue for me with the RAZR but I believe it eventually will be.
Ultimately the choice is yours, only you can weigh what is important to you and make your own personal decision.12-21-2011 11:04 PM
