Review: HTC Rezound for Verizon Wireless

Form Basics Extras Wrap-Up Comments  6  

The HTC Rezound is mostly rock solid. Aside from a couple of crummy buttons, the hardware is nearly perfect. Sure, it isn't as slim as the Motorola RAZR, but the trade-off is better performance than the RAZR in almost every other category.

The 720p HD display looks razor sharp and is crisp and clean, though its LCD isn't as bright as the Super AMOLED's on other phones. The sound quality of voice calls was excellent, and the signal performance on both 3G and 4G networks was as good as can be expected. The Rezound also happens to have a fine camera and video camera.

The Beats Audio integration works mostly because HTC has fine-tuned the software to work with Beats' headphones, which are packaged with the Rezound. There's no doubt that the software makes a difference, though just how good that difference is depends a bit on what type of music you listen to most often.

In the end, the Rezound sounds great, and may be a resounding success for Verizon and HTC. While many an audiophile can sit back and smugly think that they ca recreate Beats' effect on non-Beats phones and headphones, HTC's Rezound will look cooler and serve its users better.
