    Can anyone here confirm if the Rezound signal/reception is better than that of the Thunderbolt's?

    Thanks.

    For me it is much better. In my office at work my rooted & rommed Tbolt I could only pick up 3g and with my Rezound I get 2-3 bars of 4g.Hope that helps.

    I was at the Verizon store yesterday. My TBolt was getting around -85dB and the Rezound was getting about -95dB

    It's been awhile since I've had the Bolt, but I can tell you the Rezound, for me in my area, has had the best reception out of any LTE phone to date - and I've tried almost all of them.

    my Rezound has been better than my Thunderbolt in both reception as well as quality of call and DATA is faster everywhere.

    Okay, that is great news. I was on the fence about buying the rezound or the nexus but I found out today that the nexus does not do simultaneous 3g voice and data. The only 2 phones capable of that are the tbolt and the rezound. I'm just wondering how much of an upgrade the rezound is compared to a tbolt that is rooted and has the rezound battery inside. I know some of the obvious features are the camera and display but I don't know if that would be enough for me to buy a rezound. I am wondering what kind of dev. support the rezound will get.

    I've had the rezound for almost 3 weeks now and its an awesome phone. Took some getting used to going from an actual key board to the virtual but it does the trick. Screen is amazing and the phone its self is really fast with the dual core.

    Honestly...dont waste your time on the Thunderbolt. I had it week one and rooted and ROM'ed immediately.

    This phone stock buried the Thunderbolt S-off/rooted in every way. I cannot think of one thing I like more about the Thunderbolt now that I have an unlocked bootloader and perm root.

    My tbolt was/is rooted and I didn't want to part with it so even though I could have used an up grade from another line, I paid retail for the rezound. Since I don't have a car dock yet for my rezound, I'll use the tbolt for gps until I get one. I love the fact the sims are swapable.

    The way I see it, the Rezound is an upgrade in every area possible, but it won't give you that "new toy" feeling that a Razr or Nexus might give you.

    Never had the TBolt, but this Rezound has awesome reception compare to my Bionic, even on the Bionic's latest software update. And I live on the 3G/4G line and it hands off perfect each time I go to and from work each day.
