I bought HTC sensation less than 1 month. Its battery life is so bad that It can not last for 8hours. It has already crashed twice in the last two weeks. I regret buying it

I am using HTC Sensation for more than a month
I use the phone for surfing, emails, occasionally click some pics, video calls (thro tango) and voice calls as well.
The display is great...though not tht clear in sunlight. But thts not dealbreaker..its just fine in the sunlight. The display is prone to finger prints impression.
Initially thr was no touch screen issues. Offlate, I cannot unlock the phone by th r

previously im a user of wildfire...then i have switched to desire hd...i can say i like htc so much...and now im using this sensation for a month...from my personal experience:

good:
1. sense UI 3.0 is really really awesome.
2. unibody n design feel pretty solid n nice
3. screen is nice (but difficult to see under sunlight)
4. SKYPE video call DO WORKS!
5. GPS locking really fast

bad:
1. battery
2. deathgrip somehow do exist for wifi
3. loudspeaker not really loud enough
4. sometimes do overheat till 42*C while charging (dunno whether will effect the phone for long run)

- so far my touch screen doesn't seems to have issue..n i havent applied screen protector on it, still no scratch!! anyway,not sure whether gorilla glass or not...
- network signal is dependent to service provider, thou previously my signal is weak (constantly up n down) but since is switched to other operator the signal is just nice...
- recommend to use phone casing with the small tiny hole (as like the back cover) rather than fully covered casing cos this effect the signal too...
- installed n running 'task killer' do drain my battery faster...(been experienced with my desire hd before)uninstalled...battery behave normal back...
- i don't see a lil hiccup (some says its lagging) is such a big problem to me....
- fastboot; i disabled it when i off my phone before sleep since the background app is still running after boot (which will still drain the battery)...anyway fastboot it is a very good idea in some occasion when u temporarily need to off your phone...

i like the sensation but i still miss my desire hd...greetings from malaysia.

> In reply to ads @ 2011-08-11 11:45 from t7Xi - click to readIf I were you I would go for GALAXY SII. Believe me, one of my friends owns XPERIA ARC and the other SENSATION. It's a good S-LCD display on XPERIA ARC, even in the sunlight, pretty much the same as S-LCD from HTC SENSATION, but neither of them cannot match the super amoled display on my GALAXY SII. I always see everything, of course with diplay brightness at least 80%. So you will have to rev up the brightness to see the details. Probably this would make your battery last only for a day or less. Again, GALAXY SII has the best battery of those three. Hope I helped.

> In reply to raj @ 2011-08-10 11:09 from s8Hb - click to readFinally i read someones comment about screen performance of this phone in direct sunlight. This is one of my primary consideration in choosing a phone because my job requires me to be out in the office. I need a smartphone that is legible outside. So this sensation is no longer in my list. What about the Arc and Galaxy S2 whats your experiences on these two handsets when viewing outside in direct sunlight

> In reply to RAHUL @ 2011-08-11 09:53 from vIyd - click to readHi Rahul,

This phone is the best. Its much better than Samsung S2. Smooth, and fast responsive touch. Stylish aluminium case (Safer than a thin plastic galaxy s2 case). I have been using HTC sensation for over a month and its a great phone. Go for it.

> In reply to vishwa @ 2011-08-10 21:16 from vGV4 - click to readwell it depends which defect you want.. SGSII had the pink spot and yellow tint on some of its devices, though the latest update should remove those annoyance, and it's not that visible anyway.. or the Sensation with its deathgrip and malfunctioning touchscreen issue.. the choice is yours mate..
performance is quite the same while builds are personal taste (lightweight plastic or heavier aluminum)..

HTC Sensation is really an incredible phone. As per experience, the response is good and satisfies a techy user.
