    Currently using a rock-solid rooted Droid X, but with the $79 Rezound price, 4G and then ICS right around the corner, I'm thinking of picking one up.

    OK, how satisfied are you guys with the Rezound?

    The forthcoming Samsung Galaxy S III looks to be very sweet but is it worth the extra $$ compared to the Rezound?

    Thanks in advance for your response

    By far best phone I've ever had. Even on gingerbread and a 3g only area. Can only imagine it getting better on ics. Just wish I had done it sooner.

    Love the phone. I came from an OG droid and was worried about switching to a Sense phone. At first it was a little weird, but you get use to it real quick. And if you dont like it just root and rom. The screen on the phone is beautiful, and I get pretty decent battery life.

    My son originally wanted an iPhone and I had him try out my old droid charger before making his final decision. He ended up getting the Rezound and he loves it. What's funnier is that all his college buddies have iPhones and they wish they had a Rezound.

    I like it but coming from a DInc2, there are differences that I prefer from my older phone. The onscreen keyboard is better now, but I miss the nav arrows to move around. I miss the wifi checkbox on the pulldown bar. Battery also blows on the phone. I thought the Inc2 was bad, but this one is worse.

    Always learning something new and fascinating about my Rezound. Can't compare to Razr Maxx, Nexus, since I've never used them.

    Came from a Droid X, which was thinner than the rezound. That is the only advantage it had. How Motorola fit so many bugs into such a small space is amazing (they were even able to add more bugs each time they updated it). Compared to the X the Rezound is absolutely bug free and a pleasure to use. The fact that it has better screen, cpu, camera and speed specs is just icing on the cake. Did I mention that I like the rezound? I am somewhat nervous that ICS will somehow mess it up, but I am reassured by how well the leaks seem to work.

    I love mine. Wouldn't trade it for any phone VZ has out now or has coming out soon. This is easily the best phone I've had. I had the dinc2 and the dinc1 before this so I admit im a HTC fan boy. But these phones never let me down.

    I also came from a Droid X which I loved but I just wanted more horsepower and the Rez delivers! The Rez screen is amazing and the camera is top notch. I am a Sense hater so Go Launcher with an ICS theme makes the ui a pleasure as well. You won't be dissapointed.

    I have the Rezound, and it is awesome. Biggest downsides are battery is small, but OK, and the screen is hard to see in the sun. Otherwise i have no problems with this phone whatsoever. Having said that, I am planning to use my wife's upgrade to get the S3. I see it as a no loose situation. If you get the S3 and it isn't for you, you can always return it within 14 days and get the rezound. I would recommend trying the S3 at least. You cant go wrong.

    I use to tease my son because the one advantage my Razr Maxx had over his rezound was that I can see my Maxx perfectly in the sun. BUT, one day because of his frustration seeing his phone in the sun, I checked the display settings. It was set to auto and I put it up to 100%. Lo and behold, he could see his display as well as I could in the sun. He was thrilled and my Maxx advantage lost a few advantage points.

    Totally agree. The camera on the GS III and the Rezound look to be comparable with the GS III having a few better features like being able to take pictures while you are shooting video. I would get the best phone you can afford. I would suggest researching any bugs or issues that each phone has and make sure you can live with those problems (slight as they may be) for the next 2 years.

    Coming from moto d1... It is a real joy. Battery is fine for my usage (probably would be considered relatively light user). Screen is downright gorgeous. Do get at least a screen protector... I dropped it on day 2 and had 2 micro dings in it (pavement ftl).

    It's fast, and if you have 4g, its a beast. On an ics build and love it. Loved it even on gb.

    When I first got it with GB, I liked it a lot. Now that I have ICS on it, I am in love with it. In fact... I...I think it might be the one. I want to have it's babies.

    Awesome display (True 720p, and still the best ppi of any phone out right now). SD (and oh yes, it does support 64 gig SD cards). Removable battery. Awesome 4G and GPS radios. Still one of the best cameras (highest resolution front camera of any phone out right now too). And under ICS it is incredibly responsive and smooth. With GoLauncher even with Sense running in the background it is butter smooth all the time.

    With the extended battery I can do 14 hour days easy and have gone over 24 before.

    The Maxx has one advantage that will never go away though...it is thin and durable. Gorilla Glass + Kevlar case = should be standard on all Android phones.

    That's all it has going for it, otherwise it blows, qHd display "old tech" and crappy Motto Blur, and locked boot loader, did I leave anything out. By the way, how is ICS on Motto, oh wait, there is no ICS on Motto.
