We can't base this LG phone off of the past LG phones. I mean, some people out there didn't care too much for some previous HTC phones before moving onto the rezound. I love my rezound and i prefer to stick with it because at this point in time....unrooted....it simply works. great reception never rebooted on me very snappy UI other than the occasional pull down bar lag. Great screen, great sound, great build quality, great feel in hand. Only downside for me is the extended battery. The Razr get the MAXX and the extended battery for the G Nex is better looking too. I love this phone and really don't need to look further for a long time. But of course if you don't have a new phone and are in the market, i'd say go take a peak. Actual GO GET THE LG PHONE. Tell is how it is after 7 days of personal use then report back to us. If you like it, keep it. If you don't, I feel you can't go wrong with the rezound, UNLESS you have the unfortunate shipment of a dud like some (very few) people get. And the dev support is picking up some steam too. I think the masses are starting to realize the rezound needs to be mention in the top 3 VZW argument.
