    I'm looking to get a new phone, I'm switching over to verizon from at&t, so I can get the bionic for $30, and the Rezound for$80 on amazon. I'm just wondering if anyone has any advice on which phone is better and more reliable. They both have very similar specs, similar in size, the only difference I see is that the rezound has a faster processor (1.5 GHz instead of 1). I have also heard that the bionic has some reliability issues, but I'm wondering if the rezound is really worth the extra $50. any thoughts?

    So I Had the Bionic since it was released. Went through 4 of them thank to the data issues. Constantly dropping. Updates didn't help solve the issue. So VZW gave me a rezound. I am loving it. No data issues, and the HD screen is amazing. From my experience, the Rezound is a better phone. But I suggest going to a VZW store and playing with both because it really comes down to personal preference.

    I say Rezound strictly because it's not Motorola.

    My bionic killed the rezound I compared it to. No reliability issues with 901 update and the big 2760 extended battery makes it a beast while still looking/feeling good and not like a pregnant cow unlike another phone I've seen ;wink

    I have the Bionic and I love it. The webtop dock gives you more flexibility to use it to go to sites that only a computer can go to. Get the 5.9.901 update and you will love the Bionic.

    The bionic is a good phone. I love it. But if money isn't a issue go with the Razr maxx

    I love my bionic, even with the data issues im the beginning. The screen is really nice if you live somewhere sunny too. Only thing that kind of sucks about the bionic is that the boot loader is locked but it really isn't a huge deal. Also the bionic is getting ICS soon. Not sure about the rezound

    IMO, the Rezound is the best phone on the market.

    i have the bionic and i love it. i personally don't like sense ui. best advice is to give both of them a tryout and see which one screams "i'm the one for you."

    The Rezound also comes with a nice pair of Beats Audio headphones.

    The razr is the best. The tested benchmark tested both devices the razr won hands down.

    I cant think of a single thing the Bionic does that the Rezound does not do better. Sometimes significantly better. That is not to say that the Bionic sucks. Just that the Rezound is THAT good.

    Is the Rezound worth another $50? Hell yes. Especially if you are not going to be upgrading again for a while. The free earbuds alone are worth more than $50 on eBay.

    (btw...ghz is not the best measure to go by when determining speed...a lower ghz phone can still be faster)

    The "best" depends on what you want to do with the phone. The Razr does not have the best resolution, or the best pixel density or the best camera. It doesn't have a removable battery. It cannot be unlocked legitimately. It isnt the "best" in a lot of ways.

    There are no phones that are the best at everything right now. Any of them involves a compromise. The "best" depends on what you want the most.

    The htc Rezound totally rocks! Of all of my past phones this is my favorite hands down! (my other phones are the OG,DX,Thunderbolt,D3,gNex)
    The camera alone is worth the extra cash!

    Rezounds battery is probably the worst of all the 4g phones and the extended battery is less powerful than bionic's but still makes it look like a fat cow. Sense ui is ugly and over in the rezound forums people are having tons of problems. There's not one thing ur rezound can do better than my bionic. These phones have so much power, I doubt either one would get near its upper limit or become maxxed out. One thing I do know for a fact, though, is that my battery is bigger. And when it comes to 4g, yes, size does matter baby

    Rezound. Better phone, unlockable bootloader, better screen, free headphones, ability to talk and use data on 4G and not just 3G and a whole lot more.
    Motorola has already released 2 models after the Bionic.

    LOL, no they're not. The Rezound is one of the most problem free of the newer phones. Reception has been universally great. The extended battery lasts well over a full day (I know, I actually have one).

    Here's what the default battery life looks like:

    It can display HD content better than the Bionic. LOL.

    Looks like there is at least one thing, eh?
