Well I'm Back...

So I have an Incredible and a Rezound and the audio on the Rezound sounds like I am underwater. Any idea what's going on? No one wants to talk to me unless I call them back on the Incredible.

Tech support had me erase phone storage and then told me not to install any apps or restore my apps to see if that fixes the trick. It didn't. Now they are sending me a new Sim Card. He says my old one might be corrupted and causing the problem.

This phone

is awesome. Best screen currently in the business, feels good in the hand, 10+ hours battery life with moderate usage, not buggy and Beats by Dre is pretty impressive sonically.

I'm not sure why anybody would pick up a razr over this and on paper it looks like it may be even better than the nexus.

What about Droid 3??

Typical Verizon behavior, update the newest phones, and an odd mix of older phones...
This lack of support for EVERY phone that should get this update, and your bloatware apps that you try to push on us, is the reason that people (not me...yet) root their phones.

Lacking Support

So let me get this straight... HTC has completely abandoned their not even 2 year old EVO 4G for upgrades? Have abandoned their not even a year old Glacier (MyTouch 4G) for upgrades, and is favoring the Sensation line up OVER the Amaze? REALLY?

There is a reason HTC is not the leader anymore.

While I used to HATE Samsung, and I still wont use anything with TouchWiz, Id rather buy a Samsung phone and root it and customize it than buy another HTC phone. Why? Cause at the end of the day, Samsung is learning to support their line up longer, and HTC has discovered they dont have to....but look where it got them!

Id rather go with a company that will support updates (and yes these phones BOTH have enough space and power) than stick with ...

This is why HTC rocks!

They are much more consumer oriented in the way they unlocked bootloaders and now at least giving a timeline in their planned ICS roll out. Motorola understandably has their reasons but can they really be justified in light of what HTC is doing?

Droid RAZR is a better buy and beats is a gimmick

I played with a Rezound for a few days and ended up returning it. The beats is nice but it's a gimmick. The Phone has a 1.5Ghz snapdragon processor but Sense slows it down. Don't believe me? Quadrant scores say it all. Plus there was a noticeable lag from time to time. Nothing major but it was just here.

The Droid RAZR was snappier and had virtually no lag. It's scores are almost on par witht he Galaxy S II devices. Not to mention better battery life as well than the Rezound as well. It's also much more sexier than this typical HTC chunky device with same tired design and aging Sense.

Guess who will get Ice Cream Sandwich first? You can get it will be the RAZR since not only had Motorola already confirmed but they're also been acquire...

Overated

I had this phone for 5 days. I sent it back yesterday. Having had HTC's (rooted of course) in the past (TP2 and an Imagio under WM6.5) I guess I expected more. The level of bloatware in this device and coming from my current rooted DroidX proved to be unbearable. I'm going with the Galaxy Nexus (assuming it can be unlocked).....
Also - I found LTE to be overrated -IF your primary use is tethering a laptop for email and an occasional PDF download.
I did play around with the temp root options that are out there but again compared to a rooted Droid X running a Liberty 2.0 ROM and overclocked to 1.2ghz ... even the dual 1.5 parameter - I consider - OVERATED.
Lastly - the screen resolution -yes better than the I-phone. But my wife who ha...

The Beats Software vs. Other Music Player Apps

Nice right up Eric. I've been saying this all along about the Beats software. I was wondering if you've had a change to install other music player apps such as Player Pro or PowerAmp, which have 10 band EQs. I would tend to think these $5 apps would perform equal or if not better than Beats software. Any thoughts?

I wonder...

If they'll do pure ICS, or hose it with Sense. :/ I like HTC devices, their build quality, etc - but not Sense.

What about....

...the original Evo 4G? I'm suspecting the hardware requirements are a bit "too powerful" for the original Evo 4G and as it is, I'm due for my upgrade here in Jan 2012. Once I see a list of phones OTHER THAN THE CURRENT GALAXY NEXUS S that begin to have it, I'll consider. I'm steering far clear from Samsung for very good reason.....they don't know how or when the right time is to get their Android OS Updates out their to the Market. It was quite evident with the Galaxy S and prior phones from their line.
