HTC Rezound Review: A High-Performance Android Phone


The HTC Rezound ($300 with a new two-year contract as of January 3, 2012) is one of the more capable devices released in the past year. With beefy specs, including a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor and Verizon LTE 4G connectivity, the Rezound...

720p display ; Incredibly fast dual-core processor ; Beats Audio built-in

Preloaded with bloatware ; Terrible battery life

If you can deal with subpar battery life, the HTC Rezound is an excellent phone that won't feel outdated anytime soon.

HTC Rezound


Fast 4G LTE speeds ; Great camera ; Slow-motion video recording ; 32GB of storage (16GB internal)

You can't use Beats unless you use HTC's Music app ; Beats earbuds sound muffled unless you're using Beats ; Poor battery life ; Power and Volume buttons hard to press

The HTC Rezound is a decent phone and certainly a solid buy if you're on Verizon, but we can't help but be disappointed with HTCs limited implementation of Beats Audio and the poor battery life...

HTC Rezound


The Motorola RAZR and Samsung Galaxy Nexus seem to be the two Verizon LTE juggernauts enjoying the lion's share of the spotlight, with the HTC Rezound sandwiched smack dab between the two of them. But that doesn't mean the device has any less to offer...

Top-notch 720p HD display ; Wonderful processing power ; Best headphones we've seen included in-box

One of the thickest LTE phones to date ; Battery life is well below average ; Too expensive, regardless of its specs

The Rezound is packed with some of the best specs you can find on the market today, and may give the Galaxy Nexus a run for its money.

HTC Rezound review


Every few months — a year at most — we see a feature or spec introduced on a phone that represents a new standard, a baseline that future phones in the high end have no option but to match. If you go back a few years, you can...

One of the best displays I've ever seen ; LTE and processor really deliver ; Feels a lot better than I thought it would

Sense UI isn't getting any better ; Beats Audio isn't consistent across apps ; Nearly twice as thick as a Droid RAZR

With the Galaxy Nexus just days away, the Rezound is a victim of bad timing (and a bad skin)

HTC Rezound Review


Verizon isn't stinting on 4G LTE smartphones, and hot on the heels of the DROID RAZR comes the HTC Rezound. Where Motorola chased slimness, HTC has targeted all-round top-flight features of the sort we've not really seen from the company in some time....

Beats Audio is one of HTC’s big promotional drives with the Rezound, though to our mind the superlative dual-core performance and immersive 720p display are better selling points. With 3G it would be a great Android smartphone: LTE demands you make use...

HTC has been one of the more profound vigilant figures in the mobile industry that always has a knack in producing quality smartphones. When it comes to the Android landscape, they were there right from the beginning showing their commitment in...

HTC Rezound Review: The Beats Go On


The smartphone is available from Verizon Wireless for $300 with a new two-year service contract. That price is higher than the typical $200 or $250, but the Rezound comes with a pair of Beats earbuds that are valued at $120

Cool looking and not too heavy ; Excellent display ; Very responsive ; Excellent voice quality ; Oustanding camera

Proprietary charging interface ; Annoying volume button that is hard to operate ; Screen is so reflective that it can be distracting ; Slightly disappointing photo quality when using the zoom feature

But when music and movies sound this good, you're more likely to watch them during the public transit commute home, for example, instead of randomly surfing the Web or checking your email. That extra entertainment is a bigger drain on the battery, but...

HTC Rezound Review


This is the final review of the HTC Rezound for Verizon

Large 4.3-inch 720p screen ; Solid build quality ; iBeats headset ; Dual LED flash on the 8MP camera ; 2.4 and 5GHz Wi-Fi capable ; Good modem to access 4G LTE

Seems slow for dual-core 1.5GHz processor ; Proprietary software ; External speaker audio quality is poor ; Battery life

The HTC Rezound is a solid device for consumers looking for a high-quality screen and expensive headphones. The audio quality of the iBeats headset is good, but for most it will be difficult to distinguish between subtleties. If HTC incorporated the...

HTC needed to separate themselves from the rest of the Android manufacturers. With news of Motorola being bought by Google, and Samsung clearly a favorite for the Nexus device two years in a row, there needed to be something that allowed HTC to stand...

Review: HTC Rezound for Verizon Wireless


HTC's first Beats Audio-enhanced phone lands at Verizon's doorstep with LTE 4G, a 720p HD screen, and custom headphones to bring a better audio experience. Here's Phone Scoop's in-depth report, wherein we put Beats Audio to the ultimate test.

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...
