HTC Sensation 4G (T-Mobile)

 

Big, beautiful, high-res screen. Excellent Web browsing performance. Good-looking, useful Android skin

1080p video recording has some glitches. Can't trigger voice dialing over Bluetooth

The touch-screen, Android-based HTC Sensation is T-Mobile's biggest and best smartphone yet.

HTC Sensation XE with Beats Audio review

 

We had some hands-on time with HTC's new European Android flagship a short while back, but it wasn't nearly enough to answer all our questions about how

Good build quality and aesthetics ; Great packaged headphones

Beats Audio software is largely a gimmick ; Aging display technology ; Camera isn't up to par, especially with video ; The extra speed isn't worth the battery drain

The XE doesn't improve much on the first Sensation and better phones are hitting the market. Did we mention Beats Audio is a gimmick?

HTC Sensation XE hands-on: First look

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 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...
