    Keeping Rezound over Galaxy Nexus

    So coming from the OG Droid the rezound blows me away obviously but I was wondering what the reasons to trade in for a galaxy nexus for.
    My reason for not trading in for nexus, correct me if im wrong:

    Hardware on rezound> gnex.

    I dont really want to get into the ROM scene on this phone but do want to remove the sense and all the bloat ware and maybe wifi tether and over/underclock, will that be an issue for this phone? Like when an update comes out for ICS will I still be able to remove the sense and bloat?

    I can wait an extra for ICS, let them fix the bugs, im happy as long as my phone is super fast.

    I wont be using NFC.

    Beats headphones

    Extended battery.



    Any comments on the reasons to keep this phone or reasons to switch to the gnexus?

    developer friendly: Nexus > *
    Processor: nexus = rezound (this is debatable, but IMO TI's OMAP line is one of the best out there, even at slower clock speeds)
    RAM: can't go wrong, they all have plenty
    Screen: both 720p
    Memory : Rezound > Nexus. Rezound is upgrad-able here, nexus has pre-installed SD memory - non upgrade-able
    case: from what I've read this is a toss-up as well.
    UI: Also debatable... Many prefer sense, just as many hate it. No current way to get rid of it on the rezound, just have to install a second launcher and run sense in the background - waste of ram. Nexus > Rezound.

    Overall.. pick your poison

    If they get S-Off before the Nexus is released I'll be giving the Rezound a hard look.

    I use go launcher and home manager. With home manager you make go launcher default then go into settings of home manager and autokill sense. I have been doing this with all my phones for a while. Works great if you dont like the manufacture UI.

    I'm rocking my Rezound now and I'm pretty happy with it. If the Nexus ever comes out I may just buy it with my taxes Jan-Feb. Then I'll just have the best of both worlds. S-off is coming and so is the Nexus, waiting for both will drive a cell phone junkie

    HTC specific terminology. S-on = locked bootloader, S-Off = unlocked bootloader, which in turn is the ability to load custom kernels and leaves rezound owners no longer relying on HTC for updates, and or limitations.
