HTC Rezound’s rear cover can be removed easily to reach its internal battery, micro SD card slot, and SIM card slot. Because Motorola had to pack the Droid Razr to give it that slim waistline, it had to lock the battery inside the shell, which makes it inaccessible by a normal human being. All the buttons of both the phones are placed perfectly and there is no chance of accidental presses.

The Final Word

When it comes to features, strengths, and weaknesses, both the handsets outweigh each other in one or the other department. In any case, if you are a person who wants to carry something that is not common, we recommend you to go for the Motorola Droid Razr.

The handset has distinctive looks along with strong battery life and other features. HTC, however, has nice features, but lacks far behind in the department of looks. For more frequent nighttime camera users and people who are loyal to HTC, Rezound is the handset. All in all, on our review, Motorola Droid Razr scores more than the HTC Rezound. For Moto lovers, this is another slim, sleek, and attractive option.
