HTC Rezound (Verizon Wireless)


CNET Senior Editor Donald Bell contributed to the Beats Audio portion of this review.

The HTC Rezound has a gorgeous 4.3-inch 720p HD display, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, an 8-megapixel rear camera with dual-LED flash, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, and Verizon's 4G/LTE speeds. It ships with a pair of Beats earbuds along with a...

The HTC Rezound is quite bulky and call quality could be better. The Beats Audio software can only be toggled in the Music app.

While it may have a hefty build, the HTC Rezound's beautiful display, commendable performance, and multimedia-rich features make it a top phone for Verizon customers.

HTC Rezound (Verizon Wireless)


While the colors aren't as vivid as what you'll see on Samsung's Super AMOLED Plus displays, it's still plenty bright and colorful. Typing on the screen using HTC's stock keyboard is easy in both portrait and landscape modes.

Unbelievably sharp screen for videos and Web browsing. Beats Audio is great for bass fiends. Fast 4G LTE data. Distinctive red accents stand out

Expensive. Heavy. Camera and camcorder disappoint given the high specs. Weak speakerphone

The HTC Rezound is an amazing Internet and multimedia machine that fits into your pocket, but it's a bulky piece of kit.

HTC's Rezound is the second 4G

Sharp display, snappy performance, fast data speeds

Thick and heavy design, middling battery life, expensive

"Phone has already broken twice in the same way."


How did it break? Internet service slowly starts breaking down and I turn it off to reboot, and then it just continually starts and shuts down in a cycle without ever staying on again. I have had 3 different phones of the same model now, tried 2...

"Great phone, AWFUL battery life!"


Phone works great -while it works. Worst battery life of any phone I have ever owned. Max life on extended battery was 4 hours sitting idle. Verizon just replaced my original due to overheating --after first saying it was overclocked because the...

The audio quality is great and performance is great.

Battery life is AWFUL! Overheating. Screen freezing. OS failures.

"The Best Verizon Smartphone I have owned yet."


This phone is extremely impressive, the whole package, the Camera, Processor, Screen, Sense (most people dislike it, though I feel its better than what I dealt with when I owned Motorola devices, or LG devices.) The screen seems like it has a delay...

Excellent Display, The Rezound's Camera is better than the Sony Cybershot I own. Its MP's isn't as high, but its faster, and higher quality. Better processor than the Droid RAZR/MAXX.

Battery Life is okay due to 4g LTE and the display quality, but I can last almost 2 days with moderate/light usage. Gets warm when playing certain games.

"Beautiful design and interface but not dependable."


I had expected so much from this phone and most of the time it delivered. It is one of the best on the market but its dependability has made me rate this phone much lower than it would otherwise deserve. I would recommend this to tech-savvy people with...

Beats Audio is amazing, overall performance is pretty good. Beautiful design and interface.

NOT DEPENDABLE! I am currently on my 4th replacement because of internal problems and I have been forced to do at least 5 factory resets. Call quality is mostly poor. It looks horrible with the extended battery.
