    I can see some sort of power button but I could manage the volume by a widget without any problem.

    You see... we could design a great phone.. no prob. There are complaints about the buttons on the Rezound being near flush with the case. They don't protrude much at all in fact. There is no problem using them but you must know where they are. I personally like them.

    It definitely seems a progression alright. It's been said it's a Dinc on steroids :)

    Well I do agree but it also has a better camera and a front facing camera and the radios are better and has 4G. More internal storage and a snappier Sense UI.
    Don't forget the kick butt ear buds as a kicker.

    It's the ear buds with the associated equalizer that is actually far better than a sales gimmick. I gave them a listen.. then gave them to my daughter. Would not be a reason for me to purchase the Rez but it is a nice accessory. I do my tunes via BT so I had no need for them.

    I know there must have been a good reason for Samsung to not include a SD slot but I don't get it. I never gave your phone any thought after I learned it lacked one. I know it isn't that big of a deal to many.. but for me it's a deal killer. I have a great oldies collection that I stream BT daily as I work. I did that way back in my Blackberry days even. Would be difficult for to change now. And I'm like you, I'd not want to clog all of my storage with tunes.

    My biggest concern was that we would not be able to. Flash roms from internal storage... But that was fixed before the phone even came out haha so I had nothing to worry about my crackflashing needs would be met

    Conventional wisdom is that Google doesn't include the microSD slot because they're trying to force encourage dependence on their own cloud services.

    After 3mo I still haven't used my Rez' card for anything -- but I know that I will, and it was an almost-must-have for me.

    I haven't bought mine yet, but the reviews say that it only works in the native HTC music player. It will not work with Google music. Unless an update has changed this since those reviews.

    Pros: Excellent display. Fast/smooth functions. Perfect screen size. Ergonomic. Good camera. Lotta options for batteries.
    Cons: Flush buttons that are hard to find and push. I really need a good case with raised buttons and most at the store have cut-outs for the buttons which make it even harder to push them! Come on! Let's think functionality here! Also, the micro-usb is not the standard fit that I have tons of all over the house and car! And the unlock screen swipe goes upwards instead of down, which isn't as easy to use with your thumb. Beats Audio is a joke. Wow, a one setting equalizer. I use Mixzing app and it's customizable, far better. Headphones are a small bonus, nothing spectacular. Were they thinking they would trick some fools into the better sound, not realizing that they can get music player apps that are better for free?

    All in all, I'm impressed and it's a great upgrade from the Incredible. I wish the Incredible 2 would have been released with a sharper screen and all the bells and whistles that the Rezound has

    Not true. A standard micro USB fits just fine. You just need to plug it in upside down ;)

    Yes, I have at least a dozen mirco USB connectors around between home, work, car etc. They all fit without issue in the Rezound.

    I also like how the buttons are more flush with the device. They are still very easy to use without having to look at the phone. Overall all I really like my Rezound. Although I do plan on picking up a 1900maH battery to get a small boost in the battery life. I have no desire to get an extended batter making it almost 50% thicker.

    The Rezound has been an excellent upgrade from my DInc. I've been getting some great speeds from 4G. 23Mb/s down and 11Mb/s up. It has made everything faster. When web browsing the screen pops up right away instead of taking a couple of seconds like with 3G like with my DInc.. Although if I'm only receiving 3G the it is still slow in loading the web pages. Fortunately, I'm seeing 3G most of the time in the DC area. Even down in sub basements of buildings I'm getting 4G signals most of the time.
