Zippy Phone with Fantastic Screen and Amazing Sound By hankypanky96, posted: Mar 27

I've now had my HTC Rezound since right when it came out in November '11 and I've loved it every day since. This phone has the highest pixel density of any device PERIOD. The color reproduction is absolutely amazing and very real unlike the AMOLED displays out there and it uses a TRUE RGB subpixel matrix instead of a pentile display so everything is incredibly sharp and crisp. The camera takes stunning pictures with ease and almost zero shutter lag. This phone, on Verizon, gets reception where other phones may not and the call quality is quite relatively clear. If you're a light user, one charge will likely get you through the day, but since I am a heavy user, I bought a second battery to double the life. A WORD OF CAUTION: on this device, do not let the battery go all the way down to zero and replace the battery. It will go into a boot loop and become unresponsive. If this happens, you have to be quick to solve it. When the phone powers on, you'll have a few seconds to dial *#*#4636#*#* and go to phone information and switch the network type from WCDMA (a standard used by AT&T and other carriers around the world) back to the necessary CDMA + LTE/EvDo auto. That's the only problem I've had with the device and if you're nimble enough, it's easily solved. Beats Audio does come with this device and a $100 pair of iBeats headphones are included but often get tangled even when put in their included case. The sound on these along with the software built into the phone combine to give you rich sound in movies and music. The Android 4.0 update is scheduled for Q2 2012 and will give Beats Audio to 3rd party applications as well as the stock media player. Although larger and heftier than other phones on Verizon like the DROID RAZR and DROID RAZR MAXX, the phone feels good in the hand and isn't bothersome and heavy in your pocket.
