Review: HTC Rezound for Verizon Wireless
The Rezound's calling and contact features are identical to those of other Sense phones.
By default, the phone app opens with the dial pad on the bottom half of the screen and your top favorites above it. Press the favorite you want to call and bingo, you're connected. The call history tool makes it a cinch to add recent callers to your contacts list.
Since the phone and contact apps are somewhat merged into the same tool, it's easy to access contact details from the phone app, and the phone app from contact cards. Searching through your database is easy; simply start typing a name and Sense starts to search for it immediately. You usually only have to type a few letters to find the person for whom you are looking.

I like the tabs along the bottom of the phone app that let you quickly jump to your groups. You can also tap the microphone in the search bar to sort through contacts by speaking their names.
