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 Review

 

Speedy 1.2GHz dual-core processor, Large qHD display, New HTC Sense 3.0 UI, 8MP camera with 1080p HD video

No metal unibody, Only 1GB internal storage, Perhaps too large for some people

The HTC Sensation is a great handset, there's no doubt about that, and in my opinion it is the proper successor to the original HTC Desire. With a spec boost in almost every area it's a more convincing upgrade than the Desire S was and feels like a...

HTC Sensation Ice Cream Sandwich | Review

 

Ok, first off, if you're expecting your HTC Sensation to look a lot more like the Galaxy Nexus after upgrading to Ice Cream Sandwich, let me burst your bubble now so you won't have any false hopes. It won't!

There are still some prominent changes though – the new home screen where all the shortcut buttons are now aligned at the taskbar at the bottom complete with folder support, the new look for standard apps (Locations, Camera, Calendar, etc.) – but over...

So what is the verdict on HTC'S most important phone for the year 2011? Good, the temptation to rate it excellent is very strong, but in all honesty, once you get past all the eye candy, the phone is not as good as it should be, and a $600 price-tag is...

HTC Sensation Review

 

At Rs. 30,700, the Sensation is a good handset, but it's plagued with a few niggles that detract from the overall feel of using a flagship device. What we really love is the initiative from HTC to include a higher resolution display that many...

Good overall build quality, High resolution display is killer for text and browsing, Packed to the gills with features, Dual core processor makes it quite snappy while future proofing

Display should have had a better blackness level and contrast, Battery life is lower than we expected, The antenna is weak, and the Sensation tends to lose signal easily, It feels solid, but some parts of the build seem sloppy
