    I think you really mean subjective, but ironically, your actual quote is right. Screen quality can indeed be objective. Higher resolution is always better for quality of an image (for example), all other factors being equal. And in any event, the information does not necessarily need to be objective to be useful.

    Which is why you need more than one opinion. If you have 50 people saying a screen looks like crap for every 1 person that says it looks great, it might be a good indication that the phone has a crappy screen.

    And there is never a shortage of opinions in pissing contest threads. They attract phone nerds like flies.

    Never a shortage of opinions from those who have no hands on time with a device either.

    Take it for what its worth ya'll.

    A VW bug from a junkyard is exactly as good as a brand new corvette until you have driven them both. Otherwise, saying one is better than the other is a completely invalid opinion. You need hands on experience to make a decision.

    I know people have been commenting on this, but there is no way that the picture from the spectrum could be preferred over the rezound's in that wirefly video. Haha, if the pictures are too dark, bump up the exposure or something. I have been absolutely blown away by the pictures I've taken with the Rezound...especially in low light. Sorry if this is a stale subject within this thread...just couldn't help myself. :blink:

    If he has some killer pictures from the Spectrum, I'd like to see them. Maybe I am wrong. But I can only base my opinion of what I have seen so far.

    And my opinion doesn't appear to be in the minority. That review is almost completely consistent with what I've already said.

    There's a few pics from a Rezound in this thread taken from inside a Verizon store. http://www.droidforums.net/forum/showthread.php?t=196410

    What do you think? I got the same result from a Rezound demo unit, which I thought wasnt too good. I also took pics from a demo Spectrum at the same time. Both were on auto settings. The Spectrum looked great in comparison.

    Refer to the bunny picture in the Engadget review.

    Some specs are going to be fact, others are going to be a matter of preference or opinion - MOST probably fall somewhere in between.

    Personally, I'd like to know what the "general consensus" is when it comes to comparisons (e.g. camera quality). Will that "consensus" be more helpful then a walk in hands on comparison in store - maybe, maybe not. But not everyone has the time, patience, skill, or audacity to go into the store every week and fiddle for an hour doing impromptu comparisons between the newest handsets. Though I would admit, this would likely yield the most reliable result.
    As regards to the Spectrum, it looks like a great handset. Maybe it's design isn't sensational (i.e. Razr), and the specs aren't unrivaled - but I like the simple form factor, slim design, and nice screen. IMHO, from what little I know, it looks like another first tier phone for verizon - along with Razr, gnex, and Rezound.

    I'm going to stick with Rezound; got to settle down somewhere eventually.

    Very well said. Although I feel the opposite about the Razr's design. :)

    Exactly. I am not going to play with all 40 phones in the store. That is what reviews are for...to narrow down the stuff that we actually care about. Insisting that we physically toy with every single phone before forming an opinion on it is ridiculous IMO.

    I like it's display, but that is about it. The form factor looks fugly IMO. The specs are actually really good (including the camera), but they arent the best and in some ways slightly worse than its current competition. The fact that it is LG would be a minus to me as well.

    Well said. I'd seen the ads for the Rezound and was so UNimpressed with the marketing I didn't even consider asking anything about it or looking at it or its specs, touching it or thinking about it as I was deciding between a Nexus or wait for the next crop in the spring.
    It was an Incredible forum where a member posted the specs and asked had anyone put their hands on one that peaked my interest. I literally asked him " what phone is that?"
    Verizon advertised it as a corded ghetto blaster only. I have no interest in a music player with a phone and $30 a month data plan attached

    I was originally dead set on the Galaxy Nexus. Even now I still have a little bit of Nexus envy. But I cant live without SD. 32 gigs isnt enough for me anymore...I have a large media library.

    I dont think it was really marketed any more than the Rezound, but the Verizon reps are definitely pimping it over the Rezound. When they aren't pimping the iPhone anyway. And yeah, the music capabilities are the least of it when it comes to the Rezound. It is like trying to sell a corvette by telling the customer how awesome the cup holder is, LOL.

    I totally agree. I was so set on the Nexus that I hadn't even heard of the Rezound. It was impossible to not know about the Razr with it being on the tv every commercial break. I learned about the Rezound from some other forum and then became excited when people started really talking about the phones they had. I could not be happier with my phone.

    Speak of the devil.... I just went into verizon to pick up an extended battery, and while waiting, handled the LG a little bit. Damn that phone is big! Dwarfs rezound (in terms of actual feel. I know it has a bigger screen, but it also has huge bezel on top and bottom) . To me, it felt even bigger than the Razr! But, the rezound is a relatively thin phone (width, from left to right, not depth). Still a cool phone spec wise, but that sealed the deal for me. Sticking with the rezound. Just my opinion though.

    Store manager where I got my Rezound told me he ordered one for himself. But when I traded my GNex, the rep was like "why?".

    I don't even mind GB on the Rezound. But I can definitely see where the Gnex being the only phone with ICS right now is a selling point. Especially for a new or average user, they aren't necessarily a satisfied buyer to learn they didn't get the latest software.

    I like ICS but I dont have a boner for it like everyone else seems to. Mostly I want it because it should result in performance increases for the Rezound (it will take better advantage of both CPU cores than GB does...or so I have been told). ICS was not a major selling point for me on the Nexus...vanilla Android was. And the fact that it is easily rootable. I also liked the screen (I like AMOLED in general) and I liked Samsung more than HTC. That was before HTC rolled out their "you can unlock if you want" policy.

    Rezound or Spectrum for prints?

    I'm an old lady with teenagers and I still want to print photos of them and put in photo albums. I would really rather not have to carry an extra camera. I have a droid 2 now and prints from it are worse than a toy would take.
    I have read that it IS possible to get Prints of acceptable quality from a smart phone and that is a top consideration for my upcoming upgrade.
    Is the rezound picture quality enough better than the spectrum to warrant buying it based on that?
    I just looked at both in a verizon store and the larger screen of the spectrum really appealed to me so unless the camera its substantially better on the rezound, I'm leaning tOward the Spectrum. Plus the rep told me they've had a lot of People return the rezound because the speakers blew out.
