    I got the Razr before the Rezound came out...regret I didn't wait to compare the two, but still can exchange.
    I always like Moto phones because being on the road everyday my experience was moto has better reception.
    Does anyone see a difference in reception?
    If you have switched from Razr is battery life better or worse?
    Any glitches yet with Rezound?

    Razr I've had issues with erratic behavior while charging. Honestly thought I had a bad charger. But I'm typing this now while plugged up to same charger. No erratic behavior now after FACTORY RESET.
    Did a few reboot already. Freezing up a few times.
    Now I use my phone quite a bit. I use it for ALL of my audio and navigation and constantly searching for reviews of phones. I've used 4.25 gigs of data since Oct 22.

    Thinking of switching but like how thin the RAZR is and afraid the Rezound might not have excellent reception like the razr. Seeing I'm on the road almost everyday.
    I'd appreciate everybody's opinion on what I should do.

    Thanks

    Can't speak for the rezound but HTC phones are know for dismal reception.

    My thunderbolt gets the worst reception of any phone I have ever had. This is in the same areas where other phones got great reception.

    Really? The reception on my HTC Droid Incredible 2 is just fine. What other HTC phones are known to have bad reception?

    I know my Droid x had better reception than my HTC Eris. But the Eris streamed at bat 2010 PERFECT no cut out. Droid x sucked at streaming at bat 2011. I switched back to Eris to see if it was the app. Nope Eris was still flawless.

    HTC and moto have very similar quality both good build quality but there made very different and both solid reception but the bars read different.. HTC might be showing 2 bars and moto might be showing 3 or 4 but the HTC can be pulling better service ..that's not always the case just a example.. but both make solid products so if u want to try the rezound I would go for it

    HTC does not come close to Moto when it comes to radios and reception. We have HTC, Samsung, and Moto all within the same plan and same region. HTC always comes in last place when we compare.

    It may not have been the exact science of measuring each phones reception ability/signal but we used open signal app to isolate, measure, calculate, contrast, and compare all three phones at different locations within a 50 mile radius.

    To me it seems like HTC is capable but something throws it off...maybe an engineering or materials issue?

    Also Was it a thunder bolt? Cuz I'm not sure what it is about this phone but it is lacking in reception but this is the only one I've had a problem with. So I'm sure the rezound gets good reception.

    Not true. I had two motorolas and an htc. My HTC beats all of those phones in reception, phone quality the dx was the best I think.

    not big enough a difference to be a deal breaker. But HTC is smoother and better camera and better ui so it wins for me
