Alright buddy, as someone who owned the first HTC Sense Android phone I wouldn't say my reasons for not liking "Sense" are biased. Nice try though. It hogs the resources of the phone more than Moto Blur (at least the newer toned down version that Motorola implemented in the Bionic, Razr, Photon and Atrix 2) I will give HTC Sense its credit- the widgets provided with that particular UI are top notch. Also, the contact navigation is better. Other than that, nothing much to write home about over other MFG UI's or stock android.

Better screen, yes, I've already said that. However a lot of that is also based on opinion. It does have more ppi and a higher resolution but the colors aren't as bright and vivid. Some people prefer brighter, almost oversaturated colors and some don't. As for the form factor, ALSO opinion. I personally have no issues using my Razr one handed and find the Rezound to be way too heavy and bulky. One of the reasons I decided against it.

Better processor? Statistically, yes that is also true. However when your UI consumes so much of that, it negates that. First thing I noticed when trying out the Rezound was that it didn't feel nearly as smooth as the Razr when simply navigating around the phone.

Better camera? Maybe. But the Razr is definitely not bad at 8MP and far less grainy than the Bionic.

Better radio? Seriously? Have you used a Motorola phone? They're KNOWN for the power of their radios. This is my first Motorola phone and I see a CLEAR difference in call clarity and signal strength.

As for better battery life, everything I have read on both reviews and user forums suggests the Razr may have it beat.

I would think that a phone that's "twice the phone of the Razr" would have twice the processor, twice the megapixels in the camera, twice the call quality, etc. etc.

I'm not biased, I just DON'T care for the Rezound. Sorry if that gets your panties in a wad.
