    Deciding between Nexus and Rezound

    I have had a Samsung Galaxy Nexus since January, and really like it. Especially like Android 4.0 and how smoothly it runs. Like pretty much everything about my Nexus, except the camera. It is a pretty big disappointment, usable, but not up to par with the rest of the phone. I take a lot of pictures at the gun range, etc, and that is important to me.

    At any rate, now that the Rezound can be had for $50, I picked one up. My wife has been eligible for an upgrade for about a year, but doesnt care too much about phones. I used her upgrade, and the Rezound came today. I am going to transfer her number to my Nexus than activate the Rezound with my number. Going to try it for a few weeks to get a real good comparison to my Nexus then decide which to keep.

    I know the camera is superior on the Rezound, but what else do you Rezound owners think I should focus on to make me think I should keep the HTC over the Samsung?

    I know the Galaxy is bloat free, and the Rezound is not, but I am not sure how much this really slows the Rezound down in practical terms, but I will be paying attention.

    Also, prior to January I had an HTC Incredible for a long time and that was an awesome device. Still going strong for my 8 and 10 year old daughters as a game and music player. So, I already have an affinity for the HTC line, hopefully the rezound will continue that.

    Just thought I would throw this out so you guys could point to the best parts of the Rezound as compared to the SGN. I really like my SGN, but am very much looking forward to doing an unbiased (since I have both devices, there wont be the question of someone promoting something they just committed to for 2 years) comparison over the next few weeks.

    I meant to ask about Swype. Is it available on the Rezound? I will go search.

    My youngest son, who happens to be a Sophmore in college amidst a thousand college students w IPhones just got the rezound. It it's his first Android phone and he loves it. He has had no problems with it at all. And his college buddies are looking to get Androids now!

    Thanks. Not seeing it as a keyboard input option, do I have to get it from the market?

    Swype on the rezound is called something different but can found in settings under keyboard. It is native to the phone & works great but I can't remember what HTC called it.

    I think Swype is called trace on the rezound. Found in settings under language & keyboard.

    I enabled Trace. Seems ok, I will try and get used to it and see how it compares.

    Thanks for the help. I had a similar post posted in the Nexus forum, but a moderator didnt like it, I thought it was a legit reason for a duplicate post, since I am comparing it to the Nexus. But, whatever.

    Yeah, closed it since it was a duplicate... I can move this to Droid General discussions if you like... Either way, it will be seen by Nexus and Rezound owners because of the title...
