The rezound is not a global phone! It doesn't work in Israel.

Although since I can unlock my Nexus with out going through Samsung my warranty is not void.
Also I did spend quite a few hours with the Rezound when it came out. It seemed to still have battery issues though. But to each his owne. If the battery life has improved that's great but I
I was stating my opinion and specifically left out the above info as I did not own the phone.

My upgrade is due in February, and I originally wanted the Thunderbolt. It's near EOL, but I didn't care. That was, until the Rezound price was reduced by $100, and possibly more by the end of February. Personally, I like the Sense UI. The default Google UI is getting quite boring, IMO. The Nexus has ICS, but as I mentioned, I like Sense, and I'm in favor of ICS with Sense.
The rezound is a great phone. I purchased one and loved it while I had it. But honestly, and don't flame me please, I missed my tbolt. I missed the weight, the width and especially the kickstand. Also I love the keyboard with the arrow keys right on the bottom. I know these may seem silly reasons, but its wary made me take the rezound back. And even though I left the dual core phone and dropped back to single, I honestly didn't see THAT much of a difference in performance. The only thing I liked about the rezound was the bigger battery.......which is why I kept it and returned my rezound with the tbolt battery. But the rezound is still a great phone, no doubt.

How did the Thunderbolt have a different keyboard? They both use Sense (HTC Keyboard). If it was a 3rd party keyboard, you could just install that on the Rezound too...I am using the iTap keyboard.
I can understand the appeal of arrow keys. But all the new phones have a "magnifying glass" that hovers above your finger and allows for precision movement...so I dont really use arrow keys anymore. That way is just easier.
I've spent a little bit of time with a few of the phones but I'm still torn.
Razr Maxx - Pro - Badass battery life makes this a good pro for me
Pro - Slim profile
Con - Battery is not replaceable
Con - Screen doesnt look as good as Rezound/Nexus
Con - No ICS
Con - Locked bootloader
Rezound - Pro - Nice display
Pro - One of the faster processors
Pro and Con - Unlockable but has to be done through HTC and voids part of the warranty
Con - No ICS
Con - Cheaper build feel, not solid like my OG Droid
Nexus - Pro - ICS
Pro - Nice display
Pro - Unlockable with no warranty void
Con - Had friends tell me battery life is kind of crappy
Since I listed no ICS as a con, I will say that yes, I am aware that the rest of these phones should get ICS, but lets be honest, we might wait 2 weeks or 8 months fior that upgrade and I'm not sure if I want to get ICS 2 months before I upgrade again. If I could get something from HTC, Motorola giving a timeframe within a month or so I would feel better about choosing them.
