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
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.
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.
Conclusion: It's not flashy and it's not impossibly thin, but the HTC Rezound is a sturdy workhorse of a phone that just works. It has a solid data connection, average Verizon LTE battery life despite the lower capacity battery, a very good camera, a reliable data connection with good indoor LTE reception and a...
Pros: 720p display, fast, good LTE reception, Beats earbuds in the box.
