    Hey guys. I just got rid of my GNex and got the Rezound. I couldn't be happier with it. While the Nexus is a nice phone, it had too many problems. I went through two of them and they both had the same Data/4G issues as well as GPS lock issues.

    The Rezound is awesome and I haven't found a thing about it I don't like.

    I look forward to sharing some tips and tricks with you all.

    This seems to be the trend that folks are giving up their Gnex for a Rezound. Glad to have you guys in the forums. I was reading today that while HTC revenue has dropped 25 percent, Samung revenue is at an all time high thanks in part to the Galaxy S2 and the Nexus. HTC has changed their future plans to provide less models of phone for more stability and focus. So with those words we may be able to breathe easy when it comes to updates. We've yet to get the first one, but it's not like we REALLY need it just yet.

    There's a lot of bloatware. I was worried that it and Sense would slow the phone down but IMO, the Rezound runs smoother than the Nexus. I was going to root it and get rid of the bloatware but it's running fine as is. Also, when we get ICS, there's a feature there that allows you to disable bloatware apps. As far as the battery is concerned, it's comparable to the Nexus. All the 4G phones are battery hogs.

    Depending on whether or not HTC decides to put this feature into their Sense ICS skin, the Rezound may or may not get it. I sure hope they do for Rezound owners sake though, it is definitely a really great feature.

    Hopefully Google will fix all the issues with the GNex, but given that Jan 15th is fast approaching, I am losing confidence, and growing frustrated that Google/Sammy released a top end device with such bush league problems.

    Just not a good move. Unless there is strong commitment from the mfg's by the end of next week, to roll out a comprehensive OTA that addresses the major issues, I am going to go ahead and exchange.

    I think the GNex should end up a good device, but it will never have shipped like I think it should have. I just want the best device available, overall. I was convinced that GNex would be that, but am rapidly losing that confidence.

    I will decide next week which phone I will be using the next 2 yrs. I came from an Incredible which was a great phone, and still is for that matter. So, I have a lot of trust in HTC already.

    I had the same decision, my contract was up and I had been waiting for the GNex and it seemed like fate that it was released within a week of my contract. I waited to read some reviews and went to the store and looked at the demo units. Started reading about the issues especially with the reception and connectivity issues with the Gnex, so I grabbed the Rezound . Figured I would hear within my 30 days that the issues were fixed and I would trade in for a Gnex. Well, only have about a week left and I am definately keeping the Rezound. Now, with It being unlocked I can satisfy my flashing needs and still have a reliable phone .

    Took mine back, and the rep acted like he didn't understand why I was doing it, and asked me why....said ICS is better blah blah blah. I'd like to say they are just trying to understand the customer so they can make better recs to other customers, but of course VZW reps have never inspired such an opinion. So my guess is VZW is seeing A LOT of returns swapping for the Rezound (especially if this board is any indication).

    First time I've played with an HTC phone and Sense doesn't bother me. I like their choices of widgets - OMG a COMBINED exchange/gmail widget who could have thought of that?!? Granted I'll run my own home launcher and perhaps obliterate Sense with a custom rom at some point, but I feel like this was a good choice.

    I'm still a bit leery of what happens with ICS and capacitative buttons, but enough "newer" phones have them that Google will have to get things to play nice. Again I'll go back to the fact that with a protective case, the software buttons become "recessed" with the screen, and that's a fail for easy and consistent pressing.
