Verified Purchase
I've had a HTC phone ever since the Orange M5000, through TytnII, HTC HD, HD2 and HTC Desire; so it's fair to say I like HTC.

I decided to skip the Desire HD, as it wasn't a big enough jump, and plumbed for the Sensation in all its dual core goodness.

I have to say I'm pretty pleased with it; the screen is large and easy to read, the GUI is lovely and fast, all the normal Market Place apps are there, and everything I've bought previously on the Market installs without a problem.

As others say - the battery life is about a day with a decent amount of Smart Phone usage. Not had any trouble with wifi or 3g connectivity or with dropped calls.

In fact the only small gripe I have (don't think anyone else has mentioned this) - is with the micro USB connector. It's recessed so some of my USB cables don't plug in far enough. Easily fixed with a Stanley knife and a quick shave of some of the plastic from the end of the cable but watch those fingers ;-).

For all the smart things this phone can do, I mainly use the internet connectivity - which is quick and simple, though I prefer the free Dolphin HD browser to the pre-loaded app.

I would recommend this phone to anyone - in fact I guess I just have.

There are some surprisingly poor reviews for this device, I have, overall been very pleased with this device, I got mine through Vodafone and have been using it for over a month.

Yes the device does get warm if you're playing games for a long time, but not to the point of burning my hands, a little warmer than say my nexus one when doing the same task.

The screen is vibrant and responsive, as is the Sense UI.

The battery life, I usually get a little over 24 hours with probably above average use; browsing the web, playing games, watching you tube, making calls, texting/email and I have no problems with any of them. I'm yet to have a go at using the device to connect to my TV to watch a film because you have to purchase an adapter.

The screen shows 4x5 = 20 icons in the apps view, and 4x4 =16 on the various home screens but it does depend on the size of your widgets as to how many you can put in there. The lock screen, quick access feature is great and I use it pretty much every time I open the device to take me to one of my 4 most used areas.

Android is a personal preference I have ipod touches, and I find the android and sense UI to be more to my personal way of using a device, if you're of a similar mind set you'll enjoy this phone, if you love/want an iphone then you'll be dissapointed because this isn't an iphone, I'm tired of apple, windows, android debates, it all comes down to personal preference, what you want to do with the device and how you're used to working.

Final point on signal, I've not had a single dropped call from this device, the device picks up H consistently and is fast at getting email and browsing when I'm out and about, which is an improvement over my Nexus One.

I purchased this phone a year ago and was initially impressed with the jump from my previous handset (iPhone 3gs). The screen is vibrant and responsive (usually) and it's able to multi task without becoming overwelmed.

I have been impressed with the flexibility of the operating system but that speaks more about the Android platform than the phone itself.

As time has gone on, I have experienced increasing issues with battery life (I ended up purchasing a higher capacity battery just to get me through a typical day) and have been let down by the Alarm Clock function on more than one occasion. In fact i have to manually reset/restart the phone every couple of days or basic functions such as the alarm cease to work. I can only assume that the basis for this is that the cache gets full and overwhelms the system. Still, it's not really excusable for a phone with this price and spec.

If you can pick up one of these cheaply, it might be worth doing so, but in it's position in the market as one of HTC's premium devices I expected a lot more. More to the point, I think it's reasonable for a basic function such as an alarm clock to work.

Overall, it has left me with a slightly bitter taste in the mouth and I would be hesitant to chose HTC above some of the other major Smartphone manufacturers in the future.

I upgraded from HTC Desire to HTC Desire HD and now to sensation, I suppose you can call me HTC man. I am carrying out this review because I don't really understand why people are reviewing this phone from average to very bad phone.

Trust me; I know I sound silly. I am asking you to trust me when you don't even know me. but at least hear me out, this phone is currently the best in the market including the current iphone 4S. The only thing I would say that let it down a bit is the battery that came with it, but there is a solution to it. Please buy this Battery (Anker 1900mAh Li-ion Battery) immediately you get the phone.

People compare this phone with the Samsung Galaxy 2, this is a lovely phone, but the HTC Sensation is outstanding in every way. Needless to say it is currently the most customisable phone in the market that includes the new IPhone 4s. I love my phone.
