    I googled Nexus, and all the pics were of an old Nexus I assume, but I sure hope the new nexus doesnt have that stupid track ball! I love the fact that the new phones now are all screen.

    Is this the exact phone verzion will have? http://www.google.com/nexus/#/tech-specs

    few things I noticed:
    *looking at the photo it doesnt look like a 4.3 inch?
    *It only has a 720p AMOLED compared to the Razr's 1080p AMOLED
    *Only a 5MP rear facing camera, compared to the Razr's 8MP
    * It does have a front facing camera while the Razr doesnt! Why not Razr!?
    *It doesnt have an HDMI out like the Razr does.

    I got to ask. How come the Rezound get's so little love? In my opinion its above the Razor and only right behind the Nexus because of the new software and instant updates. I've searched and had debates with people but know one can give a solid reason that doesn't some how involve the "true google experience" as to why the Nexus is better then the rezound. I'm not hating on the Nexus I understand the hardware is fine tuned to work with the software and all that jazz.

    NOT trying to start a war here, but why don't many people like the Rezound?

    I had some time to waste today since I was waiting for friends so I dropped by Verizon.

    I checked out both the Razr and Rezound and was disappointed with the Razr overall. The Razr is nice and light, but the screen isn't very impressive at all to me, I even go as far to say my Incredible has a better screen. The size, weight, and quality were the best in the store, but the screen didn't impress me at all. Didn't seem as sharp to me and had a slight off color to it, maybe it was a bad unit, but definitely not impressed. The power button on this also didn't want to cooperate well either, but demo unit so figured it's been abused. Other than the screen it's a very nice device; fast, light, thin, and extremely well built.

    As for the Rezound, wow. It is significantly bigger than my Incredible, but didn't feel huge. The screen was very sharp and the colors were nice and crisp. It was quick and snappy, but not a fan of the new animations they use in HTC sense. Those red hardware buttons were very nice and very appealing, a subtle difference, but a great change. The audio was quite impressive, but I wouldn't say it was much better than my Incredible with proper tweaking to the equalizer and my Senheisser CX300 (i think that's the model), Beats is highly overrated imo. The one problem I had with it was that the power button wasn't very responsive or register well, probably just that unit as it's a demo.

    This was also my first time demo'ing 4g. Wow...it's almost as fast as my wireless at home, very impressive. All the 4g phones I demo'd were extremely fast and can't wait to get a device with 4g LTE. If I had to upgrade today, which I easily could've, I would've gone with the Rezound, with no hesitation if I didn't want the Nexus. I really like HTC and am a fan of HTC Sense (I personally dislike that the app drawer button looks so much like an app icon on Moto). I'll decide in a couple weeks, hopefully the Nexus is out by then...

    the problem with it for me lately is the whole CarrierIQ thing. I think ill stay away from HTC until that pans out a bit more. Its shady.... I think the rezound has it.

    Don't get me started...
    Screen: 4.65 inch. The reviews look fantastic.
    Megapixels: They Don't Matter!... >.<
    Front cam: it's good quality over Razr, it's not vga.
    Hdmi: it has hdmi through USB
