    I switched from the original droid to the Rezound... Does the Original Droid (OG) = D1?

    The battery on the Rezound can't even come close to the OG Droid in my opinion. I am a light user and I have to charge at some point throughout the day but only because I'm afraid of it running out when I don't have access to a plugin.

    The camera is awesome! I tried the Nexus for a few weeks and was so diappointed with that camera but the Rezound camera is amazing! You will definitely be pleased.

    The notification light IMO is not good compared to the OG droid. It is tiny and it only has two color options. With that being said I've adjusted and it works fine.

    Overall the phone is a wonderful upgrade and I've been thrilled with it. It's dependable! It has a great call quality and the screen is sooo nice compared to the OG Droid!

    Yeah, the newer phones all have dual mics...if you look on the left side of the phone you'll see a tiny hole. That is the noise cancelling mic. It makes your voice very clear compared to the older phones.

    Bonus - This will also allow the phone to record stereo sound!

    I came from the Droid 1 and there's no comparison. Imagine your Droid 1 running the sweetest, fastest ROM. That's what the Rezound is like plus all the goodies already mentioned in this thread.

    The main thing that took some getting used to for me was how fast everything comes up. On the Droid 1 you would have "load time" where an app would have to load before you could use it. On these newer phones, its just there. Load times are minimal at best, and usually non-existent.

    Keep in mind that ICS has support for dual core CPUs that GB doesnt...so the switch to ICS will include a speed increase for most of us. GB does not use your dual core CPU as efficiently as ICS will. This is kinda what happened with Froyo and the Droid 1...I remember my Droid 1 doubled in speed after I installed Froyo. On some tasks it was up to 4 times(!) as fast as before.

    The ICS speed increase wont be that dramatic, but it will be noticeable. A guy posted his quandrant score after installing an ICS ROM...he went from 5400 to 6500. Thats about 20% I think.

    GB most definitely does support mutli core (not just dual core) chips. Android is Linux based and therefore natively supports multi core chips. The apps, on the other hand have to be optimized for multi core phones.

    Both ICS and GB are hardware accelerated. The difference being that GB only uses the CPU while ICS uses GPU for hardware acceleration. Lots of acronyms there but you get the idea.

    And supposedly, ICS optimizes this at the OS level. I've seen people post scores before and after ICS on the Rezound and there is a thousand point+ difference. Thats not trivial.
