    My main question is what is the difference between the thunderbolt and rezound? I really don't want to get the rezound and later be like "this is a thunderbolt 2".

    The biggest difference is the screen. The rezound has a much higher resolution. It is also shaped different. The rezound screen is 16:9 ratio where tbolt is shorter and wider. Rezound is also much faster and the 4g is much more stable. I've had both phones and the rezound is great. Just wish it had kickstand like tbolt.

    No I wouldn't say they are the same. Rezound deff. has a different feel to it to me. It's somewhat similiar both being htc phones. I think its more like the dink than thunderbolt.

    Quite different

    Thunderbolt
    Single core, 1000 MHz, Snapdragon
    System memory:
    768 MB RAM
    Built-in storage:
    8000 MB
    Storage expansion:
    Slot Type:
    microSD, microSDHC
    Maximum card size:
    32 G
     
    Rezound
    Chipset Qualcomm MSM8660 Snapdragon
    CPU Dual-core 1.5 GHz Scorpion
    GPU Adreno 220
    Card slot microSD, up to 32GB, 16GB included
    Internal 16 GB storage, 1 GB RAM


    Because the Thunderbolt is a single core processor, it most likely will never get ICS.

    Personally, the lack of a removable battery made me rule out any version of the RAZR. Batteries do have a service life, and quality control is never perfect.

    I had the razr before my rezound and had problems with 4g data loss. Also the screen resolution is less than desireable. Blacks looked good on it though. I like my rezound a lot better. Can't beat the 720p screen. Razr looked better in direct sunlight. The external speaker on the back of the phone is louder on the razr. Razr isn't a bad phone but I'd recommend the rezound.

    I thought the razr had the better screen. I like the rezound but i'd be afraid that everytime i touched it i'd compare it to my thunderbolt.

    No the rezound has a 720p hd screen. It has a higher pixel density than the iPhone 4s. The razr screen is 540x960. Rezound is 1280x720. You will see a huge difference between rezound and tbolt screen. Razr screen isn't bad from far but its far from good. Small white text on razr is hard to see. I like the color contrast and blacks a little better on razr. That is because the razr has a super amoled advanced screen and the rezound is super LCD. Do you dislike your thunderbolt?

    I see. I really like my rezound. I would suggest going to the Verizon store and play with the phones and see which one u like best. It's really a matter of personal opinion though.

    Razr! However the standard Razr appears to be fragile because it is so thin. It is also not easy to hold.

    The battery upgrade on the Rezound is easy and only 25 or 30 dollars on the half price sale.

    Go play with them all.

    Razr is better in sunlight. Rezound like the thunderbolt sucks in sunlight. Maybe the only downfall of rezound. That and the back speaker.

    yeah I noticed the back speaker on my thunderbolt stinks. Was even looking into buying speakers for it. Is the speaker on the razr maxx better?

    Had a thunderbolt, went through the nightmare update that caused spontaneous rebooting /shutting down.

    Swore off HTC phones, got a razor, not bad, really liked the oled screen. Battryy life wasn't great and there was a messaging bug.

    Got a rezound, like everything about it, screen is awesome but I wish it was oled.

    No bugs or problems. Would recommend it

    Yeah the speaker on razr is louder. Resound has better sound with the ibeats headphones. Mine didn't come with the headphones cause I exchanged my razr for the rezound. My wife has them though and we just share them. The headphones are over $100 bucks alone. I had a lot of problems with my razr. Data loss and hotspot not working. I cannot recommend the razr. If u like the razr I'd wait till the razr hd comes out. Or whatever they are gonna call it.
