    My OG is finally done and Im going to take advantage of VZW's new return policy while I wait on the Nexus. Ive been reading good things about both phones and an wondering what the majority here would choose. Im kinda leaning towards the Rezound because of the screen and Sense 3.5. Ive never owned a Sense phone and figured Id try it out for a month. The Razr is nice too.

    What would you do?

    If your sure its just going to be a rental I would probably give the rezound a try. I love my razr but at the same time I am curious about Sense. With that being said the build quality of the Razr is second to none and while its not a 720p screen like the rezound it is still very nice to look at in my opinion.

    I have the same thought process as you. Went with the Razr, love it so far. The physical design of this phone is awesome, I haven't really had any issues with it yet

    I have the Rezound and I love it. I'm still considering exchanging it for the Nexus if it comes out in the next two weeks (which is 50/50 at this point) but if it doesn't then I'll be a satisfied customer with my Rezound. The screen is absolutely amazing and its zippy fast (even faster with Launcher Pro). The camera is probably one of the best ever on a smartphone as well. Battery life is decent, but for a 4G phone that's become the norm.

    Tried both today, wasn't impressed with either. If I had to pick, it would probably be the Rezound, it's screen was nicer and it felt better in hand with it's rubberized back. The Razr is too thin or something, just doesn't feel right.

    And which one do you own. My RAZR has a great display, no issues of any kind, lightning fast, a build beyond compare and came with car/home chargers, HD Dock, portable charger & HDMI cable. The Rezound is a great phone as will be the Nexus. Each has its own features that make it unique and "one up" on the next. Everyone has their own preference for what they want in a phone but it doesn't necessarily make it better than the others.
    To each his own.

    Its main claim to fame is that its thin, and its no secret that it suffers many of the same connection short comings as its predecessor.

    Its screen is adequate at best and the processor and software are nothing special. So its claim to fame is in the name and boasted in the commercials .......its thin.
