    Ummm.. Rezound got ICS last week, not to be rude but if you even glanced at any Rezound forum it would be more than obvious with almost every post being related to that for the last week.

    Nexus is nice, I know lots of people that have them... but when we compare side by side, the display on the Rezound is much nicer even though it's smaller, the camera is better in the Rezound, the radios (ie signal reception) is significantly better in the Rezound, battery life in the Rezound is better, but he Nexus has a larger display and is more open to modding.

    My choice, Rezound. YMMV!

    Sorry meant jelly bean. Rezound will or won't get jb most likely? Nexus already has it in a rom and people love it. Battery life was the same I thought

    The Rezound will not officially get Jelly Bean from HTC/VZW, HTC stated that a few weeks ago... but I would actually be surprised if it didn't see several flavors of Jelly Bean from ROM developers especially since the RIL has been unlocked now.

    The display on the Rezound is better in all conditions in my opinion... If you use it outdoors a lot, I would recommend anti-glare screen protector though. Although, even without it, the display is still better in sunlight conditions than the Nexus.

    I think the only thing the Nexus really has going for it is that it will get JellyBean. I think just about everything about the Rezound is better than my friends Nexus. Radios, Battery, camera, screen quality. And in my opinion HTC sense has the best widgets that can really make for a nice experience. Particularly the gallery widget. Nothing else anywhere comes even close, and I have been looking for months.

    If anyone has any idea about a gallery widget that can function like the Sense one please let me know. Desperate to get it on my GS3. Passed the Rezound on to my wife before we lost unlimited data.

    As long as brightness is turned up. If you have brightness turned down, you can't see squat on the Rezound...or any phone for that matter.
    With brightness turned up, the Rezound screen is fine in the sun.

    I have the Rezound with extended battery. On moderate use I can get about two full days of use. I charge it every night though and it usually has around 50% on it when I go to bed. On heavy use days it usually has 30% or so when I go to bed.
    Battery life on the Rezound should be a non-issue if you have the extended battery.

    I can't speak for the Nexus battery.

    It should be obvious everybody will say Rezound since you posted this here. Like walking into a Chevy dealer and asking Ford vs Chevy

    It still has slight issues.. but for me.. they're very rare now.. once I updated to the latest radios the issue is pretty much gone..
    I'll just say this to the op... I love my gnex.. I wouldn't take any other phone out there above it..Haha.. it's a hacker/modder dream phone

    I disagree....I find the peeps on these forums to be pretty up front and honest. Plus many have had the nexus and switched to rezound. It's just a better phone in manys opinions.

    Post this in the Nexus forum and I assure you that you'll hear the exact opposite. I know this because of the obnoxious amount of threads on nexus vs RAZR or RAZR vs Rezound etc. back when the phones were initially released. The best thing to do is go to the store and try both phones out and see which you prefer. Everyone has different needs and desires in a phone so pick the phone which suits your needs best.
