    Any buyer's remorse?

    Hi,

    I have a Verizon upgrade to use.
    Currently using a Droid-X with CyanogenMod9/Gummy for 4.0.4

    Was looking into the Galaxy Nexus, but Verizon just put the HTC Rezound on special.
    The price looks so good I might buy it tonight.

    I have heard the HTC phones don't last very long on battery,
    but there is an extended battery and cover available.

    Are HTC Rezound owners pretty happy?

    Data drop out problems?

    Other problems?

    Thanks,

    Howard

    I am extremely happy with my rezound! I have come to really love sense and how useful it can be. I do have the extended battery and can easily get more then a days use out of a charge. I am rooted and running an ics Rom (4.0.3) on the new ruu and the phone is as smooth as can be. Amazing camera, awesome screen, especially when watching hd videos. I live in a large city, so I really never have a problem losing 4g.

    My first choice was the gnex, but then they put the rezound on sale and I couldn't pass it up either, and I haven't regretted it at all!!!

    Wow 49.99. Good deal on a good phone. Love mine. Like the size, not overly big like Razr and GN.

    No buyers remorse whatsoever. The stock experience is flawless with insane reception and data hand off. I'm on a leaked ICS RUU, and its beyond blazing. You wont be dissapointed, I promise :).

    My wife tried to order the rezound this evening, but it will need to wait a few days.

    I think it was yesterday morning I ordered a Motorola phone, then after about two hours had her cancel the order. Problem is that the Motorola phone left the Verizon warehouse to Fedex. Only after Verizon gets it back from Fedex will I again have a discounted phone upgrade - and this may take a day or two.

    Howard

    P.S. Instead of buying an extended battery and back cover, I am thinking of buying the Anker Astro 5600mAh Backup External Battery Pack for $30 at amazon.com It is an even more powerful and lower cost battery than the rezound extended battery. The phone will remain thin, but when out of power will need to be plugged into the external battery pack. What do you think of this?

    LOVE my Rezound! I laugh at the jealous 4 and 4s users when they see my Rezound.

    The only remorse I had was when I bought the Nexus. That went away went I exchanged it for the Rezound. No complaints whatsoever. I've even gotten 35 hours with the extended battery.

    You might be far happier with the new ICS version coming - less Blur, far more slick.

    I think you should give the standard battery a try for a while. It may be adequate. Why assume that it won't last? It all depends on YOUR usage, not what others claim. My phone's battery lasts all day and is rarely below 30% when I plug it in at night.

    Rezound is great for me. No data drops, good performance, great roms, stellar screen, perfect call quality and radio. Superior hardware.

    Just helped my sister get this who was limping along on a Droid X. She's a student so money is hard to come by and was really wanting a new phone. Hard to pass this up at this price. Especially when I sell her Droid X and she ends up in the black on the swap.

    I still prefer my Gnex though ;)
