I want to choose between incredible s and sensation. Could anyone help me? I have seen different posts about the wifi-signals in sensation. I mean the death grip. Is incredible encountered with the same problem?

Battery beckup getting better on regular usage. On usage upto 2 days with normal talking and wifi, i still have 35% of battey remaining.
This practice gives better results.
1) charge the battery only after the battery level comes below 20%
2) during recharge let the battery to recharge to 100% without pause.

frequently kill unwanted running applications.
Use automatic adjusment setting for display brightness.

I bought the Incredible S just not long ago in Europe. THE reason for me to buy it was because the specs on the HTC webpage stated 3G bands that work in Europe AND on the t-mobile 3G network in the US. As this is rather unusual I contacted HTC support, and they had no clue. So I took the risk and tried it: it DOES WORK both on the 3G t-mobile band in the US and on the German 3G network. So, everyone who needs this combination, the Incredible S is your phone! GSMarena should adjust the specs accordingly, please.

I found disappointed after using this phone for less than 6 months. things go wrong especially when I only have 'Cat's Talk','gmail' and'Facebook', it would 'hang' all thing time. When i activate my 'Alarm clock', the screen is no longer ' touchable'. I end up very fed up with this phone..

GUYS!

THERE IS A WIFI ISSUE.

Holding the device in landscape mode with your hand covering the side with the earpiece DROPS THE WIFI signal. This is not just MY device. This is the biggest flaw in this phone. This is also apparent in the Desire S and the Evo.

Stupid HTC design..

Video calling enables for HTC Incredible S. Get the updated version of SKPYE from their website or android market.

I have had my Incredible for 2 days now, ok so here are the only bad/annoying things about it:

-For me, I find it hard to comfortably grip the phone in landscape view.
-Because the touch buttons are so close to the screen, sometimes my hand brushes them and the phone might send me back to the menu which is annoying and has happened quite a bit.
-For me, not sure about others, but when I watch or play anything in landscape and hold the phone on the side with the ear piece , I get a big drop in wifi signal, it even cuts it off completely. This is the major flaw for this phone, for me. The positioning of the antenna is stupid.

I only get a loss of Wifi, the 3g signal is minor loss.


Everything else is sweet. Also don't bother with app killers, its just a waste of time, only good for if you get a rogue app using up tonnes of cpu. If your phone needs more cpu, it will close background apps automatically.

Battery life: I have been using the device like crazy using wifi, web browsing, app downloading, gaming, videos. I usually get about 5-7 hours of continual gaming/browsing/video watching.

Standby not sure yet, havn't had the chance to see ^.^

Overall this is a great phone and I recommend it, only annoying thing is the placement of those touch buttons.

Hope this helps you guys looking to buy this phone.

I wish I could say I love this phone but my experience with it has been completely frustrating. I purchased it in May 2011 so I've barely had it three months and it has already gone for repair twice for 10-15 days because it just stops charging. The first time it came back from repair it lasted 2 days before it stopped charging again. Now, for the third time, I'm having the same problem. I really hope HTC values its customers and either replaces or upgrades the phone to a model that doesn't have this faulty issue. I paid almost $700 USD for this supposed "top of the line" phone and I must say I am not satisfied AT ALL!

I got this one about 3 months ago. Prior to this I had Desire HD .
This is the same but with much better battery life and front camera. It has been excellent and I highly recommend. Due to comparability with most video call apps our picture is upside down which is not this phone issues. Couple new features extra than Desire HD such as quick settings. I am very happy with this phone.
