HTC Sensation 4G (T-Mobile)

 

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

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.

Conclusions Last year, Verizon Wireless subscribers had a choice between two slightly different, but excellent Android smartphones that were basically as good as each other, the Motorola Droid X (4.5 stars) and the HTC Incredible (4.5 stars). This...

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...

This is HTC's biggest phone of the year, join us in our HTC Sensation review, as we check out the newest phone in the battle for smartphone supremacy. Find out if this Android powerhouse is really sensational. We kick off with a close look at the...

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...
