HTC Rezound against the world: spec comparison

HTC Rezound against the world: spec comparison
Verizon's HTC Rezound spec sheet has arrived and it's truly a beast: 4.3-inch 720p LCD display, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and support for Verizon's blazing fast 4G LTE network. But that's only part of the picture - the Rezound redefines high-definition audio on a handset with a pair of Beats Audio headsets with their signature red cable. First reports about the audio quality have been really impressive, saying that it's truly an audible difference, and really that's what most users care about. 

The HTC Rezound also ships with Gingerbread skinned up with the latest HTC Sense, 3.5, which is as gorgeous as ever. What's more, HTC promises an update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich early next year. What you might want to know, though, is how it stacks up against the rest of the Android heavyweights and the iPhone 4S. Don't worry - we've got you covered with all the essential specs lined up for your curious minds. What you won't see in the table below is the amazing pixel density of the screen. Simply put, it's the best on the market, finally dethroning the 326ppi pixel density on the iPhone and becoming the new king with an amazing "retina" pixel density of 341ppi.

In addition, the Rezound comes with an 8-megapixel camera with f/2.2 allowing more light in for better low light shots. It also captures 1080p video.

So with no further ado, here's the HTC Rezound going head-to-head against the iPhone 4S, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, the Motorola Droid RAZR and the Samsung Galaxy S II. Which one would you pick?

LG LTE has a 4.5" IPS LCD with RGB... 1.5GHz dual-core, LTE, and a 1850MaH battery. of the above though its a tough choice between the RAZR and Rezound.

The galaxy note's size itself makes me not want it, to me, it's not a half phone half tablet, its too big for a phone and too small for a tablet. I would definitely not use it as a phone!

Remember that the Galaxy Note requires a bigger battery because it's a behemoth... Bigger device and screen landscape to light up means bigger battery to handle the job... Secondly, EXYNOS chips are not capable of LTE, which should be a deal breaker.

you can't even put LG into the mix when it comes to top-tier smartphones. I have yet to be impressed by one of their devices. They may be the first to out something with the latest specs, but they usually come loaded with a multitude of bugs that take in some cases forever or never to get fixed..They really should just stick to the feature phone market where they do truly make great devices.

Idk.. I was pretty hyped on this phone but I'm not really now. Also I'm worried about battery life too.

I can tell you now..that. battery life is going to be petiful on the Rezound...4.5 screen..dual core 1.5 ghz..LTE..and only a 1640 mah battery..phone is already headed for trouble.....with that big of a display coupled to a 1640 mah battery...

its a 4.3'' screen but yeah i dont see how this beast will survive a single day especially knowing how the previous htc lte phone barely got through half a day.phone looks quite thick so if samsung and moto can put 1650+ battery in a thin phone,htc should have been able to put 2000mah in easily..samsung have released an official 2000mah battery for the gs2(uk) which comes with a battery cover and still keeps the phone less than 10mm....

I guess they didnt learn from their mistake with the thunderbolt. 1640 wont be enough juice at all

Not really battery life should not be a problem dual cores are more efficent then single core cpu an it will mostly come down to software like the voltage cpu is set to an small stuff like that but that display an lte will take a big hit on battery for such a thick phone you would think battery would be like 2000mah or at least 1850

Your joking right? My HTC Evo 3d, the Motorola Photon, and even the Nexus S 4g are infinitely better than any GS2. That's right, I said it, there are better phones than the SGS2
