Conclusion: I didn’t think I’d care all that much about the HTC Rezound, but I am surprised at just how much I like it and wish I didn’t have to return it to my Verizon rep. My two favorite things about it are the display and the camera. Better audio through headphones is a plus too.
Pros: Great 4.3in display, Snappy performance, Enhanced audio, High quality earbuds, Excellent camera
Cons: Volume and power buttons are small and hard to press
HTC Rezound Review – Skip The Beats, Give Me The Phone
6 December 2011
Excerpt: Pros A well-designed smartphone that offers speedy performance, a fast 4G connection, a crisp 720p display and a good camera. Cons It’s thicker and heavier than other phones in this class, Beats Audio only works with two apps and the design lacks a kickstand.
Excerpt: The days of the dedicated MP3 player are dead and gone. Every smartphone ships with its own music player now, and a dozen other streaming music options are just an app download away. So it makes little sense that the headphones bundled with smartphones are usually crap.
Pros: Audio is superior to comparable smartphones. Camera has a boatload of effects and adjustable settings. Verizon 4G LTE makes for super snappy data transfers; webpages load quickly and app downloads take only seconds.
Cons: No volume controls on earbuds. Camera shutter is very slow when the flash is on. Massive amount of Verizon shovelware. HTC really needs to take its Sense UI down a few notches.
Conclusion: The Rezound is “the” Android phone to get in the here and now. The only problem is that the slightly less powerful — 300 MHz less to be exact — but the more future proof Samsung Galaxy Nexus is coming in mere weeks.
Excerpt: Verizon’s 4G LTE network is starting to grow up. The HTC Rezound is the third dual-core device on the new network and HTC’s second. The High Tech Company ushered in the high-speed network earlier this year with the HTC ThunderBolt, which definitely had speed, but lacked a dual-core processor,...
Pros: Fast 4G LTE speeds, Great camera, Slow-motion video recording, 32GB of storage (16GB internal)
Cons: You can't use Beats unless you use HTC's Music app, Beats earbuds sound muffled unless you're using Beats, Poor battery life, Power and Volume buttons hard to press
Droid RAZR vs HTC Rezound – the choice is getting tougher by the hour
28 November 2011
Conclusion: Overall, I would say that the Droid RAZR is a better phone, but I’d be basing that on nothing – both phones are super-fast, have all the features you can think of, and the only real decision to make is between their design and whether you want Beats audio (basically a built-in equalizer) or not – a...
Excerpt: HTC needed to separate themselves from the rest of the Android manufacturers. With news of Motorola being bought by Google , and Samsung clearly a favorite for the Nexus device two years in a row, there needed to be something that allowed HTC to stand out.
HTC Rezound – HTC’s direct answer to the Droid RAZR and Galaxy Nexus
22 November 2011
Conclusion: The Rezound’s price hasn’t yet been announced, but judging by its specs, it should be higher than $199, for sure. If you want to get the highest specced phone possible in the following couple of months, this handset is worthy of consideration.
