HTC Sensation Review

0. phoneArena 01 Jun 2011, 09:30 posted on

With arguably better handsets and tablets being offered by other manufacturers, HTC needed something better than good to ward off the competition, they needed something sensational. So here it is, 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor with a qHD screen and HTC Sense 3.0 atop Gingerbread – the HTC Sensation...

Also being an iPhone 4 user with a 960x640 screen res, I'm a bit concerned about a larger screen with a smaller resolution(S2). I don't understand how the S2 with a lower resolution can look better than the Sensation. I easily notice the pixels on my sister's Galaxy S compared to my iPhone 4. Someone explain this..is the contrast THAT much better to over-shadow pixel density?

Am I recalling correctly that this phone lacks external storage capability (aka microSD slot)?

If so, that's an absolute deal breaker for me, especically in these days of 2GB DVD movie conversions, 1080p video recording and 10GB music libraries.

If it has a microSD slot, never mind. :)

What a load of rubbish. I just bought this phone and whilst it looks and seems like the very best the user experience is something very different. It has real trouble connecting to 3g in the UK and defaults to gprs very quickly. With a Samsung Nexus s next to it with the same (vodafone) sim in it it gets eclipsed by the Samsung. The Battery life is never a day with moderate use, not even an 8 hour work day if your out and about is achievable. I've only had it three days and it's going on ebay before there are too many on there.

can anyone tell me if the HTC Sensation has the standard side slider wallpaper or live wallpapers? or the Sense 3.0 just kills that animation and set a static background? i will appreciate your response

i'm not happy with the specs.
especially in ram and internal storage.
why only 768MB of ram?
is it too hard to make it a normal 1GB like any other android flagship devices?

i'm getting tired with htc 'spec policy' that never put a vital aspect a highend one.
this situation will make the phone not lasting more than a year.
let say,when they update the sensation's gingerbread (sense 3.0) into upcoming ice cream sandwich,i bet it will just like desire's case.
NOT ENOUGH MEMORY!!
and leaving you with an option to buy a newer htc's flagship phone at that moment, or stay with the old OS on old phone.

that's htc roadmap!

previously, i'm a loyal htc user.
but now i will considering samsung.
i like the way they make a flagship phone really a monster phone.without a hazzle.

Please dont buy HTC Sensation handsets. There are inbuilt issues. The phone supports GSM/WCDMA mode. When you set the phone to that mode, the handset does not work. The handset drop signals, unable to make calls, unable to make call conference. When contacting customer care, they are specific and say to use in GSM mode only. They actually have admitted that there is a problem. The same SIM works perfectly in other 3G ready handsets. Now that they have got the money, they can even say to throw the mobile in the dustbin.
