First off, shame on to the CNN reporter. If he really wanted to do an unbiased report, he should have done more than 10 calls. 10 is not a high enough number to give statistically accurate results. He also should have done one third of his inquiries indicating that he was interested in an android type device and then see if they would try to steer him to an I-Phone.
I went in to Verizon several times over the Christmas Holiday season wanting the Gnex and one Verizon rep actually mentioned the Rezound (however briefly) because it came with nice headphones. The next time I went in, I mentioned that I was a musician and that rep asked me if I had considered the I-Phone. He then showed me several pretty cool music apps, but other than having a better software library, the I-Phone just can't compare to the current Android Tier I phones & I ended up with the Rezound.
Seriously, Rezound & Nexus owners should really be the ones upset by this article. Either of those phones has better hardware than the Razr, but probably aren't pushed because Moto either gives big red $$ to push the Razr or they make more per phone when they sell it. In the end, big red gets to choose what they will & won't push & it's really up to the consumer to get educated about the phones before they buy. Guess what, if you can't spend the time researching your purchase, you're at the mercy of the sales person who may be educated or may be an idiot.

Typed from some sort of computing device, but probably from my LG G2 which is fun to say over and over and over again...
Second paragraph i agree with again. Iphones are dull, and out dated.
third paragraph i have to argue with over a little though. The Droid Razr while im not a big fan of it is actually BETTER than the rezound regardless of the rezounds "amazing" beats integration. I have the Bionic for now and im happy with it but the Razr MAXX has clocked in at around 2 and a half days WITH OUT charge. that is in MY opinion the most impressive feature of the Razr MAXX no matter how stupid it may look up front. it has a better display than the Rezound, it has better battery life than the Rezound, and if ur going for quality of music on a headset i'd say any headset that matches the quality of beats if you're so impressed by that company that's actually only sell the artist label on it and NOT the product itself then i'd say ANY android device while using a headset will sound equally impressive because you can install music apps that have built in equalizers like TTPOD which i enjoy quite a lot. Don't disregard a particular phone or phone company like moto just because they happen to be pushing phones YOU didn't pick. If youre only defense for the Rezound is the music than its a pretty lame defense overall. It's all about which device gives you more bang for your buck and so far Motorola has done quite well with delivering high quality devices they just have a poor habbit of releasing phones quickly after one another Droid Razr then Droid Razr MAXX so quickly after seems stupid to me but the quality of the new device balances it out. And just because the person purchasing a phone is uneducated about the current tech in 4G LTE it doesn't make them STUPID it makes them ignorant to the idea that something is better than their all holy iphone sure, but not STUPID. By the way BEATS isnt all that amazing. my sis gave me her pair that she got with her Rezound and i must say i wasn't noticing much of a difference in quality compared to my bluetooth headset. not much at all really. BEATS only have one thing behind them....BASS.....and i dont listen to rap or hiphop so what good does bass do for me? not much really thus it all seems pretty retarded to argue one phone is better than the other based on one minor difference in sound systems.
These debates will rage on forever. As far as the screen being better that is a matter of personal preference and use. Many members in here have seen and tested the Razr and Rezound and Nexus and each have their preference. I've seen the Maxx and while the colors are brighter the Rezound's screen is sharper and more crisp and the colors are more true to life. Again personal preference. The one thing the Maxx has is battery life but if you look at all the problems the Maxx has, lower quality camera, locked bootloader, no removable/ replaceable battery the case could be easily made that overall the Rezound is a better phone. And you can add an extended battery. I did and I can go longer than two days without a charge depending on my use. Again it's personal preference and what you want the phone for. Most members in here will all agree that before you settle on a phone go to a store and try them all. Pick the one that best suits your needs.

Droid does...Apple bites
I think some of us are missing a huge point regarding the iPhone, the avg end user is just fine/happy with an iPhone. Sure the people who read these websites are tech nerds and care the the newest android has better hardware, but to your avg costumer that is 100% not relevant. The debate will continue on for EVER, but in my personal experience the iPhone is much more reliable for the average costumer. They press an app, it launches, it works. Myself I can't rally decided what I prefer as I have owned two iPhones and multiple droids over the last few years, frankly the combo of the MAXX and an iPad 3 (with foxfi) is beyond amazing ATM. Tis might jut be the unholy combination of the century lol.
As soon as you said the pentile qHd Razers screen is better than the Rezounds 720P LCD screen, that when I realized your a homer, you lost me right there.Originally Posted by Silvernirvash

I had a completely opposite experience back in the early Fall when I upgraded from my OG DROID to the Bionic. The sales guy was adamant that I would be better off with the iPhone based on his own personal experience after upgrading to the iPhone. He kept touting the Siri feature and better reliability from the operating system.
Going to a 4G phone doesn't cost the customer anymore money then having a 3G phone. It is cheaper for Verizon to have all there customers on 4G. That's why they are steering customers to the droids. Also Verizon will not be putting out anymore 3G smart phones. Sooner or later everything will be 4G.
