I agree with jntdroid...screen is great, but I usually set my screen at 25% and outside I can't see it at all. I have to turn it up to 80 or auto.
I am considering the Rezound for my next phone. I still use my OG Droid, but it is getting old, doesn't have enough memory, and is getting slow. What I really like about the Droid is the plain vanilla Android, no Blur or Sense. That is why I am waiting on the Galaxy Nexus before buying. I am off contract as of this month. What I would like to know is how good is the call quality, does the Rezound drop calls and how good is the reception. My previous phone was an HTC PPC-6800 and nowhere near as good as the Droid. The Droid has a much better radio than my old HTC. I guess what I am trying to find out is if HTC radios have improved. My old HTC PPC-6800 was also a Windows phone and really sucked compared to android.
I was playing with the Rezound at the same time I was checking out the Razr, and just didn't like the phone. It felt more sluggish than the Razr, seemed like a big brick, and the touch screen didn't seem as responsive.
I played with the Razr and the Rezound today and I am leaning towards the Rezound. I love how slim the Razr is but I just can't deal with another Motorola phone.

I did the same thing I will give my input on why i went with the rezound as well..
First and foremost was battery.. and yes i was a bit worried/skeptical as I had the TB on launch day and the battery was beyond bad... But today was my first charge and it made it 14 hours or so with moderate use more streaming radio than anything else.. I never even made it 10 hours with the Razr with similar usage and I had it 6 days and went through 7 or 8 complete discharge recharge battery cycles and battery life never showed any signs of improving.
Second would be the screen. The 720p screen is nice although I mainly like the more natural colors as opposed to the more saturated "fake" colors of the screen on the Razr.
Next the camera.. I played with the rezound and razr cameras in the vzw store and the rezound camera was not only faster, it also had less out of focus pics and sharper more properly exposed pictures
I also have really come to like HTC sense... Blur isn't all that bad but for one I don't like the glow that happens when when scrolling and selecting apps. Also sense seems to have more option of stuff you can turn off/on at your desire.
Now the things I miss or like better on razr.. the thinness and just overal asthetics of the phone. (although it did feel a bit wide to me). But you gotta admit it's a good looking phone. :-)
I don't have nor do i see myself getting the ENORMOUS extended battery as that makes the phone almost like a closed nextel flip phone..
Overall I am happier with the rezound, and if you have any other specific questions or comparisons I would be glad to give my opinion.
John 14:6 "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."
I did the same I returned my razr and got the rezound
Razr is cool but its hard to hold on to type and i have big hands to keyboard is small to battery sucks
The rezound has good screen quality the speaker on it its beuatiful picture taking awesome and I get 7 hours of heavy usage on the phone and its fully charge in 40 minutes the razr took me like 4 hours to get fully charge
I am happy with my Razr, I have it now for only 7 or 8 hours and I fine with the battery life...I understand that motorola is coming out with a fix for the or new software for the Razr and Bionic, anyway my 14 days is up...So I am stuck with the Razr for two years....I can't wait too here the thoughts on the new HTC Rezound that out..If the bionic and the razr are having battery problems..I am sure the HTC Rezound will have the same type of problem...Even the HTC thunderbolt has battery problem...Until they come out with software too fix all these battery problem, we will have too live with it...
I have learned my lesson and will be sticking to Motorola from now on.
Have an upgrade that I have been sitting on since June.
Was going to wait for the nexus but not going for flash again. A phone is worthless if you get terrible no reception.
Will be picking up a razr shortly.

The irony of your statement is that the Bionic and Razr are the ones having the biggest radio problems - the Bionic more than the Razr obviously.
HTC gets a bad rap as having weaker hardware, but I think that's either an old wives' tale that no longer exists, or something someone from Motorola started...
