The Rezound by HTC is first US handset to feature Dr. Dre's Beats Audio technology. That's probably what catches your eye first, but with its 720p HD display, super-fast 4G data, and speedy dual-core processor, the Rezound is certainly more than...

The fact that this device is not in reality sleek or unique enough to warrant calling it a hero device for HTC or Verizon shows a greater understanding by all parties involved in the power of branding. The DROID RAZR has two majorly recognizable...

The HTC Rezound is one of the best phones available in terms of specs, and it's perfect for media junkies who like to use their smartphone as a multimedia player. The high-resolution display is well suited for movies, and the included Beats Audio...

So if you’ve managed to save up a cool $300 so far and wondering which one is worth your hard earned money, we’d have to say that you’re better off investing it on the Verizon Galaxy Nexus. Even though its design is hardly a standout winner in our...

I didn’t think I’d care all that much about the HTC Rezound, but I am surprised at just how much I like it and wish I didn’t have to return it to my Verizon rep. My two favorite things about it are the display and the camera. Better...

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...

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...

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...

3 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...

HTC Rezound is an amazing multimedia and internet machine, which fits into your pocket, but is a bulky piece of kit. It offers unbelievably sharp, gorgeous high definition 720p 4.3 inch display for Web browsing and videos, 1.5GHz dual core processor,...

Booming Beats Audio, a 720p display, and a great camera make the HTC Rezound yet another top-notch Verizon...

Verizon has been bringing out its big Android guns lately. First the Droid Bionic, then the Droid RAZR, soon the Galaxy Nexus, and now the HTC Rezound. And this one might just be the highest caliber yet. Why It Matters The Rezound's got two things...

It's not flashy and it's not impossibly thin, but the HTC Rezound is a sturdy workhorse of a phone that just works. It has a solid data connection, average Verizon LTE battery life despite the lower capacity battery, a very good camera, a...

I feel like I’m taking crazy pills. On one hand, this is practically the same phone I’ve reviewed countless times, in a different shell, with slightly improved specs. On the other, it feels like a completely different animal.The red and...

There’s a risk in trying to attempt too much with a smartphone: you can end up delivering a number of mediocre experiences rather than standing out in any one place. HTC skirts that challenge with the Rezound, and while battery life with LTE...

The Rezound is one of the most well-stocked phones we've ever seen. It's certainly got swagger, since it tops the spec comparison charts in nearly every category and even beats out the iPhone's Retina Display. Speaking of Beats, it has those...

The HTC Rezound is a top quality Android smartphone. Going up against the Droid RAZR and the Galaxy Nexus it will struggle to stand out in terms of style. This is the chubby cousin to those two super slim Android releases, but it does compare...

It's going to be a very busy holiday season for Verizon Wireless. With last week's release of the Droid RAZR, Big Red has made it very clear that it wants to be, at least for a few months, atop the Android heap. Now, with this week's release...
