    The rezound didn't get the marketing from the get go. They are now just off loading stock getting ready for the next htc.

    If it's not a Droid Verizon isn't going to pay big bucks to market it.

    Which is a shame to those poor souls who'll wander in to VZW for an upgrade and will be told the Dinc HD is now the cream of the HTC crop. It has some great specs and some very ho-hum ones, as well. It certainly doesn't leave the Rez in the dustbin on memory lane.

    Keep the rezound. Drop a custom rom on that bad boy. You will be good. I have the gnex. I do love it. But if you are happy with what you have then keep it and root the lil guy

    That was my experience as well. I do miss ICS a bit, but at the end of the day the device needs to execute its core function.

    I believe your misinformed, head over the GN forums. Do you see any threads complaining that it does not serve it's purpose well. If you'll notice not a single thread complaining about it's ineffectiveness as a portable paperweight. It executes it's core function quite well.

    P.S. J/K, thiis post is my lurker lithmus test. I'm surprised they haven't descended on the thread yet.

    Benchmarking the Motorola DROID BIONIC

    My Rezound on the stock GB ROM was benching 5,500-6,000 in antutu. Now I'm over 7,000 (not 9,000 )

    And the Bionic is a dual-core 1ghz, not 1.2ghz.

    As for the wifi A capability, if your home router is Wifi N, you're operating on both the A and the B/G frequencies, so having the ability to access the 5ghz spectrum of the wifi A network is useful.

    I'm doing 6305 on stock GB. In real world use, one cannot tell the speed difference between the two, even though the Bionic has a 1ghz processor. The Rezound is a great phone, even though you can't read the screen outside, but don't trash it just because you have something else.

    I'm not trashing, I'm posting what's documented. Sorry that it doesn't comply with what you're saying, but that's why you'd need supporting evidence for your claim that the Bionic is "as good or better than any other phone". Technically it was your postulation, so you should be the one providing evidence to prove it's merit. And I can see my phone outside just fine, even with a dark screen. Sure, brightness goes to 100% and the screen is power hungry, but that's the price I pay so to speak.

    I'm still confused as to why various owners of other phones feel the need to come into the Rezound section and constantly try to tell us their phone is better.

    I won't say better, but I will say just as good. Mine did 6305 on antutu, but does that make it better? No. My point is that in everyday use, the average user will not be able to see any difference in performance. I had a Rezound, so I am not speaking out of turn here. And I disagree on reading the screen in sunlight, as it is very difficult compared to Bionic.
    To each his own and have a blessed day.

    Amen to that!

    It gets stupid the way people argue over these phones. I don't expect everyone to like the same phone as me just like I don't expect them to drive the same car or wear the same clothes. Everyone likes different things based on their own likes and own needs. They ALL run on Android and Android Rocks!

    Unfortunately, the above gets eclipsed by some who feel that since they like their particular phone it is the superior phone out there and all the others are inferior.

    Odd thing is that sounds like the exact reason why many buy a particular phone, over another doesn't it? It just gets murky when the fight is taken to the forums.

    It helps them forget about the bugginess they experience between the maintenace OTAs. It's nearly a foreign issue in the Rezound forum b/c even the locked & stocked don't suffer from 2 smoking barrels.

    actually in the beginning i did see a lot of rezound commercials on tv, with the kid walking with his beats headphones on and stuff blowing up around him in slow motion until his phone rang and he answered it.

    but that was for about 3 weeks. then i didn't see them anymore and it was all Droid Razr.

    That's how it will always be with Verizon. If it isn't a Droid it's not going to be heavily marketed.

    Now they have redone their Droid does add campaign and are getting ready to push it again. Droid does, but when advertising if its not a Droid Verizon doesn't.

    You know I can count the number of times I've been to the gnex forum on one finger. And I need no fingers to count the number of posts I've left there. It's curious how many owners of other devices show up here. Could it be some kind of buyers remorse or device envy? Are they going to the Apple forums and being all defensive too?
