HTC Sensation


Can HTC's latest flagship take on the rest of the superphone brigade?

Large, high resolution screen ; Super fast dual-core processor ; Good camera with bright LEDs ; Beautiful chassis design

Poor battery life ; Screen quality could be better

Running below the screen are the four standard Android buttons, which are all touch sensitive. They're responsive and unlike some touch buttons we didn't find them ever getting in the way and resulting in accidental activation. The lack of physical...

Dual-core HTC Smartphone with updated HTC Sense

Refreshed version of HTC Sense ; Great screen ; with inset glass ; Blisteringly fast

Screen isn't as good as others ; Battery life is terrible ; Cost of HDMI adaptor

HTC Sensation


The HTC Sensation is the Taiwanese company's flagship 2011 device. Announced in April, it's now in in our hands for a full review, which some might see as quite a quick turn around, but in the flesh it doesn't feel rushed. The HTC Sensation is set to...

Great design, HTC Sense 3.0 is packed full of detail, great screen, smooth running and stable

Some might find that HTC Sense takes over too much of the experience, but otherwise it's only minor niggles

For the most part the HTC Sensation runs very smoothly indeed. We did find that Wi-Fi went to sleep overnight and on a couple of occasions we had to prompt the Sensation into reconnecting, but it’s not alone in this. We found that the HTC Sense...

HTC Sensation Review: In Depth


Picking up where HTC's hit smartphone, the Desire HD, left off, the Sensation is their new flagship phone. It's a powerful dual-core superphone, with an equally large (but slightly thinner) screen,…

HTC Sensation review


It seemed like HTC was falling behind in the mobile processing power race, but all that changed when the dual core Sensation was unveiled. The flagship device combines Android 2.3 with the manufacturer's own Sense user interface, and is definitely a...

A fine dual-core smartphone with a neat design, but it’s just pipped by the slicker and cheaper Samsung Galaxy S II

HTC Sensation review


The HTC Sensation is not a small phone. Carrying it around in an unusually uncluttered handbag this week, we were very conscious of its bulk. It's crafted from slabs of metal and weighs an above-average but not unreasonable 148g. However, it's broad as...

HTC calls the Sensation a ‘multimedia superphone’ and given its razor-sharp screen, generally decent video playback (excepting Adobe Flash) and great audio, we can see why. If you can handle its sheer size, this is both an excellent phone and a...

HTC Sensation review


The HTC Sensation is a complete Android HTC smartphone. The HTC smartphone is equipped with a 4,3 inch qHD super LCD screen, 8.0 megapixel digital camera, WiFi, GPS and HDMI output. A 1,2Ghz dual-core Qualcomm processor allows the phone to run nice and...

H TC is bringing a fun addition to its Android smartphone portfolio with the HTC Sensation. The HTC Sense interface over the Android operating system makes it a typical HTC smartphone. The only thing I do not like is the scrolling through the menu, due...

HTC Sensation Review


There are many powerful high-end smartphones in the market currently. Just remember the Samsung Galaxy S II or the LG Optimus 2X — are there many devices that can compete with these two? To win a fight against Samsung's or LG's flagships, a device...

4.3-inch qHD touchscreen ; 1.2GHz dual-core processor ; 8MP camera ; HTC Sense 3.0 ; Android 2.3.3

Wi-Fi ; Battery life

First the HTC Sensation was launched in Europe exclusively via Vodafone that offered the phone for free with a £30 ($48) tariff with a two-year contract. Then the unlocked version of the device was sold for about £549.98 ($903). After several weeks,...
