    ???? I can't speak too much about your preferences but... I cannot believe you said that the Slcd screen looks better than Super Amoled. Seriously samsung gonna make a ton of money under next generation bezel-less Super Amoled display tvs? Idk I think some people love to kid their selves. IMO My 4.67 inch HD screen looks better than most people's TV's.

    Read any reviews by anyone stating Super Amoled is better than S-LCD 2? Alll they did was improve on what was already better. I like Amoled tech. alot but I hate how the over saturation makes a white Irishman look like he's got the complexion of a Mexican.

    +1. I made tha vow when I gave up my iPhone 3G and got the Dinc. I've only had the Rezound for 2 days, but I can safely say its head & shoulders above my Bionic! It fits sooo much better in my hand. (Another reason I didn'tget the RAZR).

    Only thing that bothers me in an ever so slightest bit is the colors in the Rezound don't 'pop' like on the Motorola phones.

    If you root, there are apps that allow you to adjust the color capacitators to a preferred saturation level. You can make the Rez very saturated if you like it that way, it can be toned down if used on a Moto/Sammy, as welll

    The colors on the Rezound screen are realistic, and that's personally what I prefer. I don't need something over-saturated to make photos look better than they really are. the HD content on a Rezound screen.... it just doesn't need words to describe it.

    To the person who said their GNex screen looks better than most TVs, I can only assume one of two things: They're either surrounded by 480p SD TVs, or they've never seen a 1080p tv with a true 1080p feed. It sucks that a lot of what you get through the cable box is still 720p, give or take a few programs.

    Personally, in the department of aesthetics I think the Rezound is a clean and pretty timeless design. It's not a phone you're going to look at many years in the future and think to yourself "oh my, what WERE they thinking?". The flat-ness and wide/tall shapes of the RAZR and GNex just remind me of barges.

    I'm okay with the unassuming visage, in fact I enjoy it a bit. Part of the reason why I purchased a 1991 Honda Prelude and had it towed from Albany NY to east coast MA. The car looks old, it looks like it wouldn't do much, but once I get into the curved roads it keeps up with modern sports cars with ease, and it's fun surprising people like that Many a mustang own have been left wondering just how a ~21 year old FWD Honda just came out of the turn so much faster than they'd ever imagine possible.

    It will probably be at least a year, probably two, until there are apps out there which require 4 cores CPU. so as I see it, the Rezound is way better than the One X, except One X will have a little better screen.

    Gee Smithy, cool atavar. But do I sense a wee bit of jealousy here? My Rezound is just great, even sans ICS. I don't really need such childish 'features' as 'face unlock', etc, anyway. Thankfully, the R has no 'NFC' chip, either - who needs everyone to read my phone?

    Oh I forgot, Google is 'not evil', according to our esteemed editor.

    I'd be willing to bet that if I went out today and asked random people outside of online android forums, that 90% plus would not know this fact, nor would 90%+ be willing to install a custom rom even after they were made aware of the fact. In fact, I would be surprised if most regular people even knew what a custom rom or kernel was.

    I wpul expect it to need a hard reset. The sd mount points changed on the last leak so if it didnt reset you probably
    wouldn't be able to access your storage.

    The razr is thin but uncomfortable to hold. The galaxy nexus has inferior camera and no expandable storage.
    Personally i think the rezound is going to be the last great htc android phone on verizon. No expandable storage i can deal with, but unless the battery is at least 2500mah, i want a removable one.

    The slcd does look better than super amoled but maybe not super amoled plus. Not to mention colors are more realistic. To each their own.

    Significant updates are known to make messes that only factory resets can fix.

    I was prepared to do a factory reset if necessary before my phone went for a swim last week. I want the new bells and whistles.

    Anyway, those with rooted phones and who know more about the phones than some might have a bit of insight into if there are going to be lots of problems after the eventual update.
    Expect to need to do a factory reset. The latest leak is nice. The only drawbacks I've seen is the new Radios when on 4g run hotter and cause a little more battery drain.

    He's was using 3.6 since the Sensation rom was first modded and sampled many others. I can't speak for him but I'm in agreement w/ him. 3.5>3.6, is very much one in the same. If your rooted try the modded Sense 4.0 beta rom for the Rez. Eveb that's not all that different but at least it does show progression in the Sense UI.

    That's not across the board, though. It seems likely that it has more to do with what the user is running more than the build itself.

I've never noticed any blue tent on my phone it's always been beautiful in the best looking phone I've ever seen and that's including your screen. we're starting to see the bad signals and bad battery forms leave. I wonder if it's because a lot of people did root? Or the fact that some rushed to judgement about ice cream sandwich in the galaxy nexus. We have been the first to test this operating system. And thanks to us you guys will see ice cream sandwich......

    First, off, you had ICS exclusively for about a month. It's been available for Rezound owners since Jan. So some of us rode the train w/ the Nexii along the way. Why do Nexus owners come here to brag about how they've had ICS all this time acting like it's been a great experience for them from moment they powered their GN on. Especially, knowing full well, it was a rushed released, buggy pain in the rump for many? It's looking good now but I don't think the updates got on the right track til 4.0.3 released.

    Disagree. I can put my phone on wifi and the temp drops 20 degrees. It is definitely the Radios or how they are being used by the kernel. I wouldn't mind reverting the Radios once s off is released.

    Hey I debated between the rezound and nexus for a long time.
    I live on the fringe of 3g/4g and in mountain areas I have no signal.
    It is a known problem whether people admit or not. I do. (is that step 1 of the program ?)

    Why I like GNex over the Rezound (personal perferences):
    I wanted to tinker with my device.
    NFC actually has it's purpose, but right now I use it switch profiles, startup apps, checkin, etc.
    Battery life for me with the extended is killer.
    Beats headphones are the lower end and I have some nice skullcandies. I like poweramp as my music player.
    No bloatware- the two verizon apps are ok and don't bother me.
    Rezound seemed like an updated DINC without much else in terms of form and Sense.

    Don't like?
    Can't just remove a memory card slot when you factory reset the device. I just spent time over the holiday reloading videos, music, etc.
    Camera could be better but I get good results from it for my needs.

    Bottom line is Verizon leads the way in Nexus phones and they are becoming obsolete as soon as they are released.
    If I was a razr owner, I would be pissed the maxx cameout shortly after the razr release.

    Sorry guys, just hate when people bash other's based on their preferences. If I weren't a member of AC I would be an owner of a Rezound or still using my DINC because a "regular" person wouldn't know what a kernel or a rom is.

    Glad you guys like the rezound. It is a solid device.
    HTC just makes solid devices.

    Finally, some truth. Form over function. Which is why I had to return my GNex for the Rezound, I needed a smartphone that worked.

So when I hear people bash the galaxy nexus I can only spit out facts.

    Sent from my Galaxy Nexus using Tapatalk
    I'm like you, in that I love facts, but I think that is where the similarities end. I bought the GNex on Verizon release day. After a week of device swaps, SIM card swaps, and factory resets because I rarely had even 3G data (in a 4G area) - I finally gave up and returned it for the Rezound. Having data alone makes the Rezound better. Come to find out, the screen and camera are better too. Bonus!

    I'm sure if the 2 GNex phones I had didn't have signal / data issues, I'd still have the phone and I'd be happy. I'd be in the GNex forum, defending it from time to time even (assuming people go there to bash it like they come here to bash the Rezound). Lucky for me, the GNex has / had signal issues though. Otherwise I would never know what I was missing.

    One more fact: I miss 2 things about the GNex, some of the ICS functionality, and the anti-glare screen. Those are honestly the only things I miss, and eventually it will be be just one thing I miss.

    It happens in all the forums not as much here at Android Central compared to other Android sites but it still does happen for all devices. Really it shouldn't happen because were all apart of the same TEAM and IMO the best part of Android is that we have choices between different devices I would hate to have only one choice to fit all like Apple has.
