HTC Rezound (Verizon Wireless)

CNET
3 February 2012
  • Summary: While it may have a hefty build, the HTC Rezound's beautiful display, commendable performance, and multimedia-rich features make it a top phone for Verizon customers.
  • Pros: The HTC Rezound has a gorgeous 4.3-inch 720p HD display, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, an 8-megapixel rear camera with dual-LED flash, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, and Verizon's 4G/LTE speeds. It ships with a pair of Beats earbuds along with a Beats Audio algorithm designed to enhance audio quality.
  • Cons: The HTC Rezound is quite bulky and call quality could be better. The Beats Audio software can only be toggled in the Music app.

PC Magazine
16 January 2012
  • Conclusion: The HTC Rezound is an amazing Internet and multimedia machine that fits into your pocket, but it's a bulky piece of kit.
  • Pros: Unbelievably sharp screen for videos and Web browsing. Beats Audio is great for bass fiends. Fast 4G LTE data. Distinctive red accents stand out.
  • Cons: Expensive. Heavy. Camera and camcorder disappoint given the high specs. Weak speakerphone.

Review: HTC Rezound

Wired
5 December 2011
  • 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. HTC is pushing back — its new Rezound phone for Verizon’s 4G LTE network ships with a snazzy red and black pair of iBeats earbuds (around $100 on their own) that are complemented by the red accents on the...

HTC Rezound Review

Digitaltrends
1 December 2011
  • 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, acceptable battery life, and a competitively thin profile.
  • 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

HTC Rezound (Verizon Wireless) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
21 November 2011
  • Summary: The Rezound has everything you want in a top-notch Android phone--blazing 4G LTE, 720p display, and a very capable 8-MP camera--plus Beats Audio for maximizing your listening pleasure. We just wish that the design were slimmer and that Beats Audio worked with third-party apps and Google Music downloads. Verizon Wireless customers have two other very compelling options. The Droid RAZR sports a much sleeker design for the same price along with slightly faster performance.

17 November 2011
  • 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 sharp 720p Super LCD display.
  • Pros: 720p display, fast, good LTE reception, Beats earbuds in the box.
  • Cons: Design lacks sex appeal, full-figured.

Expert Review

14 November 2011
  • Summary: The Rezound will likely go down as one of the best Android phones ever to launch pre-Ice Cream Sandwich — its incredible display, in harmony with the LTE modem and beefy processor, is simply too great to ignore. But I couldn't help shake the feeling that this phone could be so much better if it had shipped without Sense, or — at the very least — a significantly stripped down version of it, the same way other manufacturers have put their skins on a diet as of late.
  • Pros: One of the best displays I've ever seen, LTE and processor really deliver, Feels a lot better than I thought it would
  • Cons: Sense UI isn't getting any better, Beats Audio isn't consistent across apps, Nearly twice as thick as a Droid RAZR!
