The HTC Rezound for Verizon Wireless has the richest spec sheet in the entire HTC global lineup – a true flagship from every angle you look at it.
The Rezound is also the first HTC creation in the United States, made in collaboration with the newly acquired Beats Audio. The device arrived fashionably late to the market, compared to its rest of the world, siblings, gone through Dr. Dre’s treatment but, dare we say, the wait was well worth it.
The HTC Rezound is a CDMA device and Read more »

As the current flasghip of the company, we were more than interested to put the HTC Rezound battery through its paces. After all, the device packs a monster spec sheet, coupled with some serious multimedia credentials. A battery to match the aforementioned is more than essential – it is simply mandatory.
