VZW slashes HTC Rezound down to $49

VZW slashes HTC Rezound down to $49
It hasn’t even been a whole 4 months since the HTC Rezound hit the streets, but in cell phone years, that’s almost a lifetime. The premium Android handset that originally retailed for $299 on-contract can be yours for just $49.99.

The Rezound features a 4.3-inch display, a dual core 1.5GHz processor, 1GB RAM, 4G LTE capabilities and, most notably, Beats Audio. Verizon Wireless has recently dropped the price down to $199.99 and is now offering an additional $150 promotional discount, making HTC’s Android handset a mere $49.99 with a 2-year commitment.

Considering we got wind that the HTC Rezound will begin to receive an OTA Ice Cream Sandwich update as early as this Friday, April 6 and it comes packaged with a pair of Beats Audio headphones, $49.99 is a steal for this device.

You can head on over to Verizon Wireless’ website to take advantage of this offer before it ends on April 9th.

I've had my rezound since it was release. The only major issue I had was the hotspot would not stay connected. But ever since I've installed the leaked ics rc rom, I've had no issues what so ever with anything including the hotspot. Battery life is better but I keep my background processing off anyway so I never has a problem with that in the first place. Any lag that was present has been fixed, and for those who don't know, having live wallpapers and the amount of widgets you keep on your homepages creates the lag people have such a problem with. Other phones don't have to deal with that problem due to the face they're UI isn't as robust as Sense. I admit Sense 3.5 was a bit to much. But with Sense 3.6 it is significantly toned down, so much so, I consider it to be a pro towards the phone and not a con anymore. To me this phone is now a razor and nexus in one. You can't go wrong with it. And once ics comes for you who are scared to take a chance with an unofficial rom, you'll be able to keep this phone well into 2013. I've used all of the phones released late last year: ip4s, razor, gnex and I still came back to the resound. My preference is a mix between user friendly, specs, and overall ability. This is one powerful phone. And when the update finally comes out it will fix all the issues everyone has even thought about complaining about. Honest review from an honest person.

According to Verizon's reviews pages, many are experiencing problems with call clarity and signal strength/sustaining. Albeit, the lower price of phone. What are you experiences with the device? if any

Now if could get the iPhone 4S to say, aforementioned price, and get double the data as with 4G devices, we have a deal.

This just pisses me off that I paid $299 for a phone a few months ago that is now worthless! That is the last time I buy any phone when it comes out on the market! I understand price drops but this is bulls**t to me but not the person buying it for $49! Sorry for the language but I needed to really express my frustration.

no, the Droid Incredible 4G which will be SIMILAR to the ONE series but obviously won't actually be apart of it.

I doubt it. The price didn't really drop to that anywhere else except the website. It's one of their PROMOs. Like when the Razr dropped to .01 on Amazon for a period of time. I just checked it out and the offer ends on 4/9.

This is an awesome price. Id be pretty pist if I had bought it tho at launch. $250 less in 4 months is a joke.

not a bad deal especially considering that you're getting an expensive pair of headphones with it as well. o:

Yeah... a new HTC is coming later this month. Most likely the Inc.4 G. But still have no clue if it's a One S variant or One X.

With the ICS build leak this would definitely make my heart flutter on a great deal but I enjoy pocketing my Droid X into my pants pocket without hassle. This is just too thick.

I wonder if they are clearing stock & maximizing profits before a new HTC phone arrives "soon" >.

A person could gain an extra $20 by selling the iBeats on Amazon for $70.

The link didn't copy correctly. Go to the in-ear section.

I knew those head phones were nothing but a gimmick to get people to buy the phone. Don't get me wrong, I like HTC but the Rezound never belonged in the same class price-point with the Nexus Prime or DROID RAZR™. When you think about it, $299 for a pair of head phones from a collaboration now defunct.

Actually the Rezound is just as good as those phones. The camera is better than on both and it has a very similar (possilby better) processor. The iBeats headphones retail for $100, but they are of at least a $50 vaule. Get your facts straight before you dis a good phone.

the Rezound's S3 is quite inferior to the OMAP4s in the Razr and the Nexus even at the higher clock frequencies which makes it even worse because the higher voltage is eating your battery faster and it doesn't even perform as well as a 1.2GHz OMAP4, it barely even keeps pace with a 1GHz OMAP4. maybe you should make sure your own patio is clean before you go to tell somebody else to sweep theirs.

He's just mad because he paid $300 bucks for a pair of in-ear headphones when he could have just bought a pair of Monster Cable Beats by Dr. Dre Studio Powered Isolation Headphones for the same price (Or, a pair of higher-end Bose). Here's what $299 could have bought him: http://www.jr.com/m/record.mhtml?R=mc_129438

Is that so? Well this article says otherwise. This is from a nonbias Razr owner. Honestly the Rezound IS the better phone out of the box. Without everyones little Rooting excuses. Not everyone wants to root (including me). Especially since Motos UI looks like a turd in comparison to HTC UI. Yes Blur is merely a tiny bit more responsive due to it practically not doing anything to make it look nice. I accept loss at the Rezound for many things except the way it looks. http://www.droid-life.com/2012/02/21/1-5ghz-dual-core-snapdragon-s4-msm8960-runs-the-full-benchmark-gamut-impressive-even-without-their-next-gen-gpu/

xD that's an S4 link you got there. the Rezound has an S3. i don't root my Razr. it's more powerful out of the box and the UI is a matter of opinion. i don't like Sense. it's bloaty and it just bogs the phone down.

It's all about what the customer is looking for. I hated Blur with a passion, but I went from an Dinc2 into the Razr and I think HTC may have just lost me forever. Sense just doesn't do it for me anymore and when I compared the Razr and the Rezound, I just kept coming back to the Razr. This is truly the best phone I have ever used. But the Rezound was a VERY close second. I don't care what anyone says, it's a good phone!

As an employee for VZW aka big red dealing with tech support and 4g lte, I can attest that the Razr is a s**tty phone. Yes the Rezound has a S3 processor not the new S4, but in software and screen capability the Rezound defeats the Razr. Also the Razr's battery life outside the maxx is god awful along with motorola's well know software issues make it a phone i will never buy even if i am right next to a charger all night long.

I have the HTC Rezound and it works flawlessly. Would take it over the RAZR or the Nexus anyday, and the camera is awesome so I am quite surprised that you made such a statement, they are all great phones, it's all a matter of preference.

your preference does not mean it's a better phone.
