HTC Sensation 4G Review - A Sensational Smartphone

 

I like what HTC has been up to lately. Rather than fighting a race to the bottom with endless soulless variants of the same piece of hardware in a crowded (and fiercely competitive) Android handset market, it's trying to grow beyond just being a...

HTC Sensation review: Front-page stuff

 

HTC burst right onto the dual-core scene with a phone that's set to be an Android sensation. They've gone all out with the design of that one - from screen, through camera to the powerful chipset. No cutting corners, no compromise on features.

Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G support ; 14.4 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA ; 4.3" 16M-color capacitive LCD touchscreen of qHD resolution (540 x 960 pixels); Gorilla glass ; Android OS v2.3 Gingerbread with HTC Sense 3.0 ; 1.2 GHz dual Scorpion CPUs,...

Serious "death grip" issue with Wi-Fi radio ; Less than impressed with the screen's outdoor performance ; Performance not quite as convincing as other dual-cores ; No dedicated camera key ; microSD is under the battery cover ; No unibody construction...

Update, 02.08.2011: We've recently started making video versions of our trademark reviews. The video reviews summarize our review findings and are generally less technical and easier to swallow. So here it is, the HTC Sensation video review.

HTC Sensation 4G (T-Mobile) review:

 

HTC and T-Mobile first introduced the HTC Sensation 4G back in April, and we were instantly enamored of the Android smartphone. Not only did HTC give the phone a dual-core 1.2GHz processor and 4.3-inch qHD display, but it enhanced the user experience...

The HTC Sensation 4G boasts a sleek, high-quality design with a gorgeous 4.3-inch qHD display. The Android smartphone also features a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and 8-megapixel camera, and the HTC Sense user interface brings some thoughtful and useful...

The smartphone doesn't offer much internal memory, and the phone's speakers are pretty weak.

Its excellent design and user experience, coupled with its solid performance, make the HTC Sensation 4G one of the best Android phones yet and a top pick for T-Mobile customers.

HTC Sensation 4G

 

The HTC Sensation 4G ($200 with a two-year contract from T-Mobile) pretty much has it all: a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, the latest version of Android (Gingerbread), and 4G speeds on T-Mobile's HSPA+ network. When I first played with...

Dual core + 4G = awesome performance ; Gorgeous qHD display ; Thin, curved design

Some antenna issues may exist ; Camcorder footage looks shaky

The Sensation delights with a gorgeous display, a beautiful design, and dual-core power, but possible “death grip” issues are worrisome.

HTC Sensation 4G

 

With an excellent design, dual-core power, and long battery life, the HTC Sensation 4G is an excellent T-Mobile superphone.

Of all the monster 4.3-inch phones, the HTC Sensation 4G is the best designed and the most attractive. In other words, it's great because it's not a monster at all. This smartphone also has plenty of power, thanks to its dual-core Snapdragon CPU. While...

HTC Sensation review

 

A hotly anticipated smartphone with a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, a "Super" 4.3-inch screen, and a manufacturer-skinned version of Android 2.3 -- we must

qHD resolution is a winner ; Best ergonomics for a 4.3-inch phone yet ; Buttery smooth 1080p video recording

Display isn't as Super as on Galaxy S II ; Sense 3.0 changes are mostly cosmetic ; Locked bootloader

HTC Sensation Review

 

Once, Android's primary challenge was the iPhone: proving that Google's open-source platform - and the devices that ran it - were good enough to share retail space with Apple's groundbreaking smartphone. Now, with dominant market-share and increasingly...

It’s a good time for Android smartphone fans. The Galaxy S II has already proved that devices running Google’s OS are certainly capable of stepping out from underneath the shadow of the iPhone, and the HTC Sensation is evidence that Samsung’s win can’t...

HTC Sensation 4G Review

 

Call them reserved or relaxed, but HTC is officially in the game within the US market where smartphones like the Motorola ATRIX 4G and T-Mobile G2x have stood atop the ladder. Thankfully though, the HTC Sensation 4G is aiming to arrive stateside...

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...
