How do I love thee? Let me count the ways:
I can BLOCK individual callers. (Not all smartphones have that capability)
I can hold it in one hand. (Unlike some wide-screen phones that need two hands or cause hand cramps)
Not so thin that it will flex and crack.
Totally happy with the Rezound
I got mine in Dec. 2011 and agree. I have not seen a phone out there yet I want to replace mine with. I still marvel at the picture quality. Battery life is OK if you are watchful. Maybe CES 2013 will unveil my next super phone. For now I am totally happy with the Rezound.
I just picked up one. Def better then the TBOLT but the memory management is weird as hell in comparision to the TBOLT.
I love my rezound but I had to replace my original and I got a dud replacement and will be calling customer care shortly.
Rezound + AOKP + JB = Love
What is AOKP?
Yeah, when I get around to doing that I suspect it will be like a new phone.
I've been disappointed with the delay on rom development, but still glad I chose it over the RAZR and GNex...especially since no more subsidized upgrades if I want to keep my unlimited.
I don't intend to upgrade until phones are powerful enough to replace my laptop, when I can just plug in a USB Monitor and attach a BT keyboard and go to work.
M7 is the next big thing by HTC.

A Rezound phone was used for this Tapatalk post
The Rezound still has the best pixel density of almost any phone right now. Certainly any 720p or below phone.
And the Camera still kicks ass. I can get better shots out of this than out of a Galaxy S3. And it's macro mode destroys anything else I have seen so far. Including all the new phones.
Still has an awesome front camera too (2MP).
It will accept 64 gig SD cards...even a lot of current phones won't do that.
I will not be buying another HTC product after this. Unless it runs vanilla Android.
Sorry HTC...I gave you a chance and you blew it. I love this phone, but hate your company. And Sense...I hate Sense too.
Anyone know what it costs to replace the rez screen? It's not a big one but there's a tiny noticeable scratch running just about down the middle for 2-3 inches. It's just a tiny scratch. Wondering if it's even worth replacing it.
Guessing in the neighborhood of $100 (parts and labor) to replace a screen. Then compare that to Swappa or Craigslist (and other sell-your-phone sites) to buy a used, pristine Rezound. Saw one yesterday on Swappa, seller claims he had it for 4 days, asking $160. Now that the Rezound is free on the VZW website (with new contract), some may get it just to resell it.
Lots of rom development for the Rezound over at xda!
JB looks to be pretty good, but it's taken this long to get a solid vanilla android rom. That was my point. Literally a year to get CM10 because I don't think CM9 ever really got much attention once they knew JB was coming.
Are there any good vanilla ICS ROMs for the Rezound yet? Like with everything working, and normally?
They kind of suspended work on a quality vanilla ICS once JB hit. Not entirely sure, but it appears there are vanilla JB roms now that a very solid (save BT calling). I personally have not gotten around to loading it, but will soon.
Anyway, you have to go to XDA for this stuff.
CM9 did not have working BT calling either (had a lot of static), but from what I've read JB ROMS are awesome aside from a few small issues depending on if you're using one of the ION or PMEM ones (The Android ION memory allocator [LWN.net])
Ion has a purple-tinted camera but is smoother than PMEM.
I absolutely love my Rezound! Not a single snafu since Oct 2012. Not to mention this this thing is crazy fast. It will download & install app while other phones are waiting to DL. And it is getting JB to top it off.
Love ICS, the sound is great with the Dre ear phones. BT hooks up to my cars in a flash.
No other phone out there until it can out perform my Rebound!
