    Droid Razr vs. HTC Rezound vs. Galaxy Nexus

    Anyone had any experience or opinions on any of these? Looking to upgrade to one of these and they all look like good phones. But just can't decide.

    I just got a Motorla Electrify and I love it. Great phone.

    Re: Droid Razr vs. HTC Rezound vs. Galaxy Nexus

    No first hand experience with any of those. But at work, we are able to choose either Android phones or an iPhone. However, we have had multiple issues with Motorola phones, so those are no longer an option.

    I have the HTC Evo 3D and it's been rock solid so far.

    Re: Droid Razr vs. HTC Rezound vs. Galaxy Nexus

    I have the Galaxy Nexus after having two iPhones. I was really concerned about switching to Android but i love the Nexus so far. The speed and the screen are the two obvious big advantages aside from ICS. The downside is the battery does not last long at all if you leave on the LTE, if you use it a lot while charging the battery drain will out pace the charger

    I was leaning toward the Galaxy but I read the camera wasn't as good. Any truth to that?

    Re: Droid Razr vs. HTC Rezound vs. Galaxy Nexus

    I have endlessly researched these three phones as my contract is up next week. The Razr is the first out for me. I don't care for Motorola, qHD doesn't cut it in this group, and the name Razr conjures bad things for me....

    Basically, you cannot go wrong with the other two. Both HD screens are brilliant, though slight edge to the Nexus for the deep blacks. The Rezound has a faster chipset on paper (1.5 vs 1.2), though performance comparisons are difficult becuase of the different versions of Android. The Nexus is sleeker and has a slightly larger battery, NFC and the cutting edge updates that come with being a dev model. The Rezound is solid and feels good in hand, has a much better camera, and SD card slot and a pretty solid set of Beats earbuds.

    The Nexus has Ice Cream Sandwich, which is great, but that is a temporary advantage. The decision comes down to whether or not you like the HTC Sense UI or not. I like Sense 3.5, though I know many consider it too bloated and heavy handed.

    Both are great phones that will run the next couple versions of Android (the Razr will too for that matter). I am tempted to wait until February to see if the rumored quad-core phones, like the HTC Zeta, will be out in the first half of next year.

    That 5 MP unit is a huge step back from the top notch 8 MP shooter in the GSII. I'm still shocked by that decision. You can see comparison shots on Engadget.

    Re: Droid Razr vs. HTC Rezound vs. Galaxy Nexus

    The names for these phones are getting a little ridiculous and over the top.

    They could release a phone called the Panasonic Faceraper or NEC Nippletwister and people probably wouldn't blink.

    I dont take many pics nor do I consider myself a photograph expert but the pics that I have taken look fine to me. Perhaps a tiny bit grainy in a rare occasion.
