    If your looking to root and rom your phone the Rezound is the way to go. The Razr is a nice phone but the Rezound is has a replaceable battery so you can get an extended battery if you want. Not only can you root the Rezound you can also unlock the boot loader and have s-off as well. As far as music goes it has beats audio already installed and that has a pretty good sound. It has the best camera of any cell phone. It's better than the 4s. Overall when you factor in all the pros and cons of all the phones VZ offers right now the Rezound is the best phone there.

    That is true. Overall it's the best phone out there for Verizon. Plus it has the best 4g antenna out there. Whenever your in a weak area with 4g it will pick it up. If you do end up getting the Rezound make sure you buy the extended battery also. It adds a little bulk to the size of the phone.

    Yes it will get ICS ota. We might get it next week. I am already running the latest ICS leak and its running well so far.

    I have the Rezound and my girl has the Razr. Both are good phones. I like the Rezound because i can do whatever i want with it...it has a great developer community, its unlockable, s off is available. Also it is great stock unrooted, has a removable battery, hi res screen, top notch camera and performs great.

    I would say the Razr unrooted stock performs a little better than Rezound stock, but both are good performers. I also like the sleekness of the Razr. But the locked bootloader, horrible camera, non removable battey, and motorola releasing phones every week are all downsidea to the Razr.

    But if you ask this in the Razr forum they will say thier phone is better lol.

    I can recommend the rezound. I did a lot of research before making my decision... And I can't be happier. The camera is almost better than my $300 camera I bought several years ago...battery is decent, the screen is downright beautiful. Only complaint is the lack of decent case selection locally where I live :p

    Oh, and I'm running the ICS leak, the latest one. Smooth as butter it is :)

    I was one (of many, actually) that took back the Nexus for the Rezound. I have 0 regrets. It's simply a great phone. Call clarity is good, even on speakerphone next to table a few feet away from me it works well unless they are also on a speakerphone (the Nexus was pretty good in that regard, too). Music sounds good, but to me it's all about your headphones because I don't listen much on its internal speaker.

    I rooted but am running one of the stock GB ruu's. Don't really have any need to flash a custom rom. Had some issues with the phone and camera acting up the other day, and in 4+ months about the only issue I've had.

    Still waiting for a true vanilla Android ICS for it, but I don't miss wasting my time flashing rom's trying to squeeze every bit of power out of my D1.

    Camera often does take really good pictures. Only thing to watch is sometimes you can snap to quickly while it's still trying to focus. A lot of pictures come out really good, but some pictures are dark where I probably needed to use a flash because the auto-exposure struggled with the light balance (usually seems to be inside with natural light from windows in the shot confusing it)

    The Razr is thin and durable, and has a non-pentile (I think) AMOLED display. Other than that the Rezound is as good or better in every way. Because the display is only qHD, the Razr actually looks smoother sometimes. Someone had installed Launcher Pro on a demo model that I played with once, and it was pretty damn smooth.

    The Rezound has a better camera (especially for Macro and low light shots), and a higher definition display. It has a removable battery...this is important, because it means you can easily install extended batteries. My Rezound has gone 24 hours between charges before, and can easily go 12 hours with heavy use (4g, full brightness ect). The non-removable battery and non-HD display are the main reasons I would pass on the Razr.

    As far as rooting, the two phones probably have similar amounts of developer support, but the Rezound will always be easier to root because HTC allows you to unlock it if you want. So you never have to rely on hacks to do it. Motorola is notoriously obnoxious about roadblocking rooting efforts on their phones.

    Beats audio is IMO a gimmick. It does sound nice, but it is nothing you could not replicate on any phone with an EQ. And I don't think the current Rezounds come with the Beats earbuds anymore (I did like those...I use mine all the time still).

    So between the two, I would say go with the Rezound. Especially since this is not the Maxx version of the Razr.
