I know you're getting this phone so don't take this as an attack, but the PPI is still 315, it's going to be nearly impossible to see individual pixels. The extra screen size is a plus to me personally, the PPI difference will be negligible and having the extra real estate when watching movies/videos/images/sites is worth the loss of 30 PPI that the Rezound has. The colors (according to early adopters) also seem to be better on the Nexus. I think those things easily out weigh the loss of PPI.

I happen to be pretty happy with the screen on my x, but really liked the SGS2.

both the screens are great Rezound has more dpi the Nexus has more screen BUTTTT! HTC Rezound Having Sound Issues Through Headphones, Including Beats Earbuds – Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog even if the Nexus has problems the nexus will get fixed faster there is already a fix for that volume bug on the Nexus.The bionic is still waiting for there fix i have herd HTC is even worse on updates.
I would rather own a RAZR or Nexus than an HTC thick poor battery Rezound. In fact you can smear some feces on the RAZR and Nexus and I'd still pick them over an HTC. Sense is HORRIBLE.
The 1620 battery it comes with is terrible and the size is the same as the Bionic WITH the 2750 extended battery.
Yeah the screen is a little better. But no way it's worth lugging that thing around.
The Rezound's battery life has actually been fairly good, strangely enough.
I thought it felt quite good in hand, I liked the feel a lot better than the Razr which was honestly too thin for comfort.
I seriously would look for build quality and reception over things like an HD screen.
How much HD detail can u actually see on a screen less than 5 inches?
Not to mention it must take more CPU power,battery, and ram to push the extra pixels.
And things like movies in HD, sounds good in theory, but that's a massive amount of data if you are streaming. Or storage.
HD screens on a tiny screen don't really appeal to me too much.
The whole screen thing got blown way out of proportion.

from that article the rezound display looks crisper than even the nexus. However...that would not sway my decision on the phone. I would take the bigger display and features of the nexus over htc. Unless htc comes out with something majorly different....i dont really care to own another one. Im not a fan of senseUI. My personal preference.
Mostly this comes down to personal preference. I thought I was 100% sold on samoled screen and was waiting like everyone else for the Nexus. My family was chomping at the bit to upgrade and tired of the continual delays for the nexus. So, when the rezound became available I jumped on it, with a 30 day exchange policy from lets talk .com I thought the rezound would be a temp, and I would surely exchange it for the nexus. However, after living with the rezound, I am absolutely loving the faast smooth lag free operation, and the screen is GORGEOUS. No not quite the zap of the amoled but spot on accurate natural color and sharp detail. We are keeping the Rezound.
However, a point for everyone to consider that hasn't ben mentioned is that ICS screens are designed for high definition 1280x720 resolution. This even influenced the new font designed for this format.
So this will be the screen resolution that will be the clearest and will not require scaling in ICS.
Wouldn't pick the Rezound just based on the fact the hardware hasn't changed for the past three years...it's a thick, boring phone. Throw Sense and locked bl on top if that and it's a definite no go for me. The fact that it has 30 something more ppi means absolutely nothing to the naked eye. That may be nice to brag about for those less endowed, but in the real world means nothing.
Galaxy Nexus for me!

Ok, so I broke down and went to Verizon to check out the Vigor and the Razr too. I think the Vigor is actually a nice device, Razr not so much. The Vigor was said to be heavy and bulky but I found it was pretty light and felt nice in the hand. One thing that I thought was terrible with the design were the recessed volume rocker and power button. I also read it has terrible battery life too but at least it has a removable battery. Screen looked amazing though. Razr was just a waste of time and I was just so turned off by everything about it. My buddy who works at Verizon says December 8th but this is from internet slices and not directly from Verizon. He also said they had a live demo of the G-Nex and were trained on ICS last week so it's definitely coming this month no doubt about it.
