Buyers will also find a pair of custom Beats Audio ear buds inside the packaging that will go along nicely with the new audio software.

    Nice BUT it looks like it will have battery issues. They should have put a bigger battery in it. HTC does it again…

  • i think is time for a poll about which of the three phones coming for big red you’ll be picking after the announcement of the ReZound..

  • Nathan Roy

    no NFC, eh?

  • Lgreg64

    no NFC?

    Is anyone else here more than a little alarmed (given HTC’s track record of power “management”) by the 1620mAh battery?
    I’m one of the rabid Nexus Nerds, but if this thing had a powerful battery and if HTC / developers hyped it’s power management and efficiency, this may have topped out the Nexus.

    1280×720 is not WVGA (800×480)… It’s HD720. Somebody somewhere failed…

  • It providing the more compatibilty and good battery life..And they providing the android os…Its really very awesome…

  • Prickee

    Man what a beast this phone is.  Dangit Galaxy Nexus if you weren’t around the corner I would be all over this.

  • Simple and plain … Im New Phoned Out … Mentally I cant absorb anymore new phones … Motorola , Samsung , HTC please give us a break .. Just one month …. how about that …30 days without a new phone … SN: With all these new phones coming out who’s pissed right now they pulled the trigger a little too soon …

    Nov 14th… so the Nexus VERIZON Announcement will be on the 17th, followed by a Nov 24th (Thanksgiving) launch..


  • Davros

    Would sure like to know if this phone will end up on HTC’s unlockable phones list.

  • Pennywise

    +1 for the Super LCD (OLED is garbage)

    • Dominick DeVito

      +2 for eating more battery – which BTW is small on this phone


  • izak69

    Ok everyone HTC rezound, galaxy Nexas or Droid razr?

      Nexus all the way. Not even close.

    • Dbarden31

      Its between the galaxy nexus or razr for me. Comes down to battery life, build quality, gps, and radios for the most part for me. ICS looks awesome stock tho. I plan on testing them both before I choose but at the rate of me having to do at least one battery pull a day with my OG I might end up gettin the Razr.

    If their is a specific tab in the app drawer for Verizon wireless we have a problem. This means a ton of bloatware. 

  • Miaminole21

    Thinking about upgrading from a Thunderbolt (got tb on a one year). Would wait until ICS drops on it, hopefully my upgrade coincides with the ICS drop. Question though, would I keep my unlimited data with a new two year contract? That’s a dealbreaker…

  • Donnydon

    the razr is superior all around to nexus and rezound…….razr best hardware!!!

    • Djlowproz

      Hail Razr -_-

    • Dominick DeVito

      …but worst software

  • Donnydon

    battery life?
