Also Im willing to forgive the small battery 1) because there is an extended battery 2) its removable so I can buy a second one and have it charging at home

Can't decide now from Motorola Droid Razr, Samsung Galaxy Nexus, and now HTC Rezound

haha same, i believe most Verizon customers are having this same problem that are looking into buying a new phone. Although I am sorta leaning towards the Galaxy Nexus, as it is stock Android ics

motorola is weak and the stats on the nexus are sub par to this.

What? No SD card slot.....no Samsung Galaxy Nexus for me. What? Another Motorola phone with a locked boot loader.....no Motorola Droid Razor for me.....What? HTC Rezound will have a unlocked boot loader and a SD card slot....HTC Rezound is for me.

"Only" qHD screen takes the Razr out of the running. I know Moto has many vehement defenders here, but HD SAMOLED and HD S-LCD will be the two best displays out there. No contest for me.

Islaves will consciously ignore that dpi statement because apple have taught them only iphone has best dpi

Nobody cared about dpi until the iphone came out... I still don't. I don't understand what the big deal is about 720p on a 4.3 inch screen is. All it does for android is make things smaller like on my old atrix.

Actually, I'm a 14month iPhone 4 owner, and that pixel density on a 4.3" screen is pretty amazing!! I'm excited to see this screen in person!

Kudos to you for keeping your options open!

I do see the Rezound as a more "mainstream" offering, combining the screen quality, camera quality (hopefully, pending reviews) and audio focus people enjoy about the iPhone, but in a grown up Android screen size. It's not a power-user phone, more a multimedia powerhouse.

Thanks for the Kudos!

I agree with you except I think your "not a power-user phone" comment needs clarification. For example, what will the Galaxy Nexus offer over the Rezound? A more vibrant/saturated display with less pixel density? NFC? Exynos?

Maybe you were referring to the smallish sounding 1650mAH battery included. If so, I'll agree with that. With LTE, a large screen with high pixel density, and HTC's history of battery life, I'm expecting to have to charge this guy quite often.

Really the processor and highly optimized Sense interface more than anything. If you listen to remix and Thu--er, Kurogiii the S3 makes this phone a knuckle-dragging battery-sucking lag beast. I view the Nexus as more of a power-user phone where the emphasis is on the software experience, not music, video and photos. Of course its screen is going to be gorgeous too and it may well have great camera quality.

Some people here are so caught up in benchmark envy they'll have you believe anything less than an Exynos is a piece of crap. That's what I mean by power user.

Correction.. The Galaxy Nexus does 1080p at 60fps.
I don't have the link, but there was a popular video on Google+ posted by a professional photographer showing how great the video on the new Nexus is. The video was time lapse shot at a beach.

Gotta admit...awesome video!!

I just want to see a more realistic vid from this phone. Normal peeps operating this phone as a video camera aren't going to be using a professional dolly/tripod system......they're going to be walking around and whip out their phone when the moment strikes them.
