    So...purchased the Razr on Fri and I just couldn't get decent battery life. I got 6-8 hours of what I consider moderate use. (1-1/2 hrs talk, 15-20 texts, 5-8 websites. Screen at 0%, wifi, bluetooth off) Since I could not get an extended battery or spare since it's non-removeable, I am not around a charger enough to keep that phone. So I went with the Rezound, so far so good, just programing it now. Extended battery was $60, plus 50% off for verizons special on 4G batteries, and I got 25% off that for our company discount!

    Hope you guys have better luck with the Razr then I did.

    I'm around a charger most of the time. I bought a second battery for my Thunderbolt, I only used it once or twice, and the reason I bought it was for going on vacation. I really didn't have to use it. Matter of fact, I don't even know where the second battery is at, lol. The Razr works for me, as it works for you to have a back up battery with the Rezound. Have fun with the Rezound, was gonna go check it out, but.... I love my Razr to much, this one's a keeper for me ;)

    Sorry your experience sucked. That's no fun using a phone that just wont last for regular use. That's one of the reasons i'm doing these battery experiments; to give potential buyers an objective measurement of what to expect.

    I'm around chargers also so I don't need the extended battery.

    When I go on vacation I take a charger...

    I'm thinking about the same thing. I don't mind the integrated battery, but after extended use a few things irk me about the RAZR. Mainly the wide sides. I thought this wouldn't bother me, but for some reason it just causes issues w/ natural typing. I'm always hitting the key just a TINY bit off and spellcheck comes w/ some funky stuff. The battery life is okay, but not astounding. I expect the Rezound to be similar, but at least I have options.

    The main thing is the bootloader. I didn't think the locked boot would bother me, but it sort of reminds me of all the things I could be missing since you tend to find a lot more development on other phones since it's easy to drop them on via things like Clockwork.

    We'll see, but I have a feeling I'm going the same route. I'm going to give it until Friday to determine for sure, and maybe see if the Galaxy Nexus finally gets a set date and go from there.

    Yeah I got my Razr at Costco so I have 90 days to try it out lol. If the Rezound is a lot better I might go with that. However I didn't want to get a smart phone to begin with because of size, the only reason I got a Razr was because the thinness of it is really attractive. I like that it doesn't feel like it's in my pocket just about. The Rezound looks a big chunky and the Nexus has just too big a screen for my liking. Ultimately I still want to use this as a phone and not just a media device.

    So far it's great. I agree pico1, this phone is thicker, and heaver, especially with the extended battery. I love the fact that with Battery Info widget, battery goes by percentage, not by 10! So far today, I unplugged it at 630, did 20 mins of phone conversation, downloaded 2 apps, and checked a few e-mails. I'm at 88% yet, by this time yesterday with the Razr I was at 70% or a little less.

    So I only have the Rezound so I can only take a picture of that...Sorry I couldn't get it clearer, that is a nickle in front of it, the nickle is almost the same height, just a little higher.

    Far better. Its 720p in a 4.3" screen which mean theres a 342PPI. You can't see pixels and its not pentile.

    The Rezounds screen puts every other smartphones screen to shame, including the Razr screen, that 720p high rez screen is just fantastic, have not seen anything like it to date on a smartphone.

    Got my razr and love it.....battery tip: let the battery completely drain 2-3 times, followed by a full charge. This breaks in the battery and it will last longer. Mine last a whole day with moderate-heavy use

    The Rezound's screen is the clearest, most accurate screen out there. True RGB vs pentile RGBW (Bionic) and RGBG (Razr). But... it won't be near as readable in sunlight or bright situations as the Bionic or Razr.
