Bah!  Who needs a Samsung Galaxy Nexus?

Verizon's hitting the holiday season hard with three new high-end 4G LTE Android smartphones.  Two of them - the Motorola DROID RAZR and the HTC Rezound - are already available in stores for $299.99 with a contract.  The DROID RAZR is the thinnest 4G LTE device to date, measuring in at a scant 7.1mm thin.  It packs a dual-core 1.2 GHz TI OMAP processor, 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Advanced display with PenTile, an 8-megapixel camera with 1080p video recording, and Android 2.3.5.  The Rezound is no slouch either; on top of a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, it's packing a 4.3-inch true 720p HD display and is the first Beats by Dr. Dre HTC device to land in the United States (and it comes with headphones to boot). 

Obviously, both phones have advantages.  If size and better battery life are important to you, the DROID RAZR will most likely be the winner.  If music and a gorgeous HD display are what you're after, the Rezound will be the better device.

I turn it over to you: which 4G LTE device are you most interested in, the Motorola DROID RAZR or the HTC Rezound?  Cast your vote and let me know why in the comments!

Tracy Williams
Tracy Williams I have both rezound n the razar. Rezound is better to me. 1.5 dual core vs 1.2 2.0 front camera vs 1.3 dual flash vs 1 flash beats sucks cuz it only works with the phone software. Not pandora/slacker etc. Ever phone has pros n cons it depends on what u want.

Mohammad M. Ghosheh
Mohammad M. Ghosheh The htc. Both are wonderful 4G as people say. But the motorolla I used to had broke by 1 fall so I hate it. The htc in the other hand is tough and got a high chance in the market.
Raunaq Kumaran
Raunaq Kumaran out of these two the Rezound, great specs and if i have to choice a custom skin it'll be Sense. but IMO the Galaxy Nexus is a MUCH better choice!

Orion Pax I just saw the Rzr.. The screen is garbage..
Keith Howells
Keith Howells razr is nice and thin; a bit too wide and the display is not great; REZOUND feels similar to the T-BOLT but waay faster and screen is GEORGOUS!! I'm waiting on the NEXUS!

Phil Bridgetoclarity
Phil Bridgetoclarity I have the rezound and I won't be returning it. It is fast. I haven't even tried the beats audio. Not the reason why I bought it. It's not too thick for me. I will be getting a second battery. No complaints from me.
Steve Moore
Steve Moore Niether, I'm done with Verizon. They release a new phone every week. Just riding my year and a half out, then I'm buying a couple of tin cans and some string.

Ken Tate
Ken Tate Rezound!
Chad Richter
Chad Richter Razr for sure. I work for vz and the speed difference alone is ridiculous. the rezound's beats music player isn't all that great and sense has become waaaaay too resource heavy. If any of you are on the fence, go with the razr. If you really don't like it, that's why you have a 14 day trial. ;)

Bob Allen Droid Bionic. After my Thunderbolt experiences, I'm giving up on the "latest and greatest" for a while!

Nhut Nguyen Razr
David Hilgendorf
David Hilgendorf Rezound is WAY to laggy and battery like is a joke. Razr hands down. If you ask this question after the nexus is released it will be a different answer. NEXUS!!!!
Anthony Bazaldua
Anthony Bazaldua Oh that's too easy! Galaxy Nexus of course.
Zach Cline
Zach Cline Neither. Android blows chunks. I switched to the iphone from it and it blows these buggy pieces of shit out of the water.
Ben Wright
Ben Wright Cant believe all the people that say rezound, I LOVE my razr....i dont think people should comment unless they have one. because i used the rezound, and honestly, it wasnt that impressive. you really cant tell the processor power difference. its hummin along at 1.2 mHz (razr) and the 1.5 mHz (rezound) isnt even noticable. the screen and design factor of the razr FAR outdoes the rezound.
Henry Lavender
Henry Lavender Rezound, despite the lag. It's HD display, bundled Beats and the RAZR has a fugly UI (even though it has Smart Actions)
Michael Langley
Michael Langley RAZR. 2 words: battery life.

Ysidro Fernandez Razr, i heard beats on the rezound n its just a marketing gimmick, i would give it to the ear buds tho... the screen on razr looks much better too...
Carl David
Carl David HTC Rezound for me
J Litz Van
J Litz Van HTC rezound. I also find it funny how hard it is for some people to answer a simple question. The poll isn't, "do you prefer the Motorola razr, HTC rezound, iPhone, sprint, dominos pizza, ballroom dancing, southwest airlines or jc penny's." It's, "do you prefer the Motorola razr or HTC rezound". Pretty simple, eh?
Shawn Harlow
Shawn Harlow Neither of them are too apealing, but if I had to pick it would be the rezound..I have at&t and Sprint
RockinRose Wolf Donnell
