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.

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.

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

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.

Its been 20 days that i have got the sensation, iv been to the service station 3 times.
1st time- phone needs to resetted & then there will be no issues.
2nd time- sir we will diagnos the issue & resolve it(i did not have my phone for 3 days).
3rd time- that is today, my phone went dead, complete dead. when i took it to the service centre they said it might take upto a weeks time to get things sought it.
Issues that i m facing:
1)Heats up.
2)Restarts
3)Freeze(have to remove battery)
4)Sound is pathetic(both loudspeaker & headphones).
5)Apllications disappear.
6)Takes 3 hours to charge completely.(wtf)
7)Battery back up max 7 hours... even after min usage.

Hence i would suggest people not to go for this phone, sorry for my prvs posts... instead go for LG optimus 3D.

My friends.. I got so lost actually with all the differences of opinions about this phone.. Some are saying it is great.. and some are surprisingly critisizing the phone that it has so many problems and they dont advise to buy the phone.
What about incredible S?
Could please someone give me a real opinion about both

I am using this phone from one month,I have to say that it is the buggiest set HTC had made,sense3 hangs a lot,phone is very slow,loudspeaker voice is horrable,screen is unreadable in the sun,colours are washed off,there is network problem,screen quality is worst as compared to other competitor ,it hangs a lot,front camera is for mirror use only,don't buy this phone,it is totally waste of money

Well initially I have been using the phone for 3 months now and still I have no issues. Maybe the problem with the touch screen with you guys is that you may be applying to much pressure on the screen. Just try to apply light pressure whenever you are typing, don't treat it as a resistive touch screen where you have to press harder to get a response. The Sensation has a capacitive touch screen and it is very sensitive to pressure and is very fragile.
