Review: HTC Rezound for Verizon Wireless
The Rezound runs HTC Sense 3.0 on top of Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread. As far as Sense phones go, the Rezound behaves exactly the same as about a dozen Sense phones that Phone Scoop has reviewed in recent months.
It has seven home screens (which can be whittled down to three if you wish), and offers plenty of HTC-designed widgets for various apps and services. The main menu is laid out in grid form by default, but can be switched to list view or sorted alphabetically or by date (most recently used). There are also HTC's sorting tools at the bottom, which let you see all the apps, frequently used apps, apps that you downloaded, and Verizon-branded apps.
There are three different HTC-designed skins that can be applied to the home screen, as well as seven different Verizon-designed scenes (effectively the same thing as a skin). There are six different lock screen styles to match the six different scenes, but you can mix them up if you want to.
Lastly, the lock screen can be customized with up to four different shortcuts that take you directly to an application rather than the home screen when the phone is unlocked.
