Why I choose HTC Sensation?
1)It has built in GPS antenna. You can use GPS for free.
2)High resolution 540 x 960 pixels with actual 4.3 inches.
3)HTC Sense v3.0 – Really good in sense.
4)Camera & video recording – fine photo with instant capture & smooth video playback.
5)SRS sound mode – Produce more louder & nice sound.
6)Outlook & Design – Unibody aluminium construction for a premium look and solid feel. The glass is contoured along the entire edge of the screen. It is compact smart phone.
7)1.2 GHz, dual core processor & 768 MB RAM (Although it is not 1G RAM but overall performance is not no:1 also will consider no:2)
8)Brand of HTC – manufacturer of smart phones for year’s experience.

Why I don’t choose Samsung Galaxy S2?

1)It is A-GPS (Assisted GPS). Cannot standalone GPS and may need mobile network or WIFI.
2)It is AMOLED vivid color – Good in color display but it is not natural color. Eye ache when you look at the screen for a period of time.
3)High resolution 480 x 800 pixels with actual 4.27 inches.
4)Outlook & Design – Slim & light weight but made almost entirely out of plastic.
5)Brand of Samsung – mix product manufacturer.

Don't drop your phone if you don't want the glass to break. All phones have some problem with some of their unit, so your phone might be the unlucky one, so the best thing is claim your phone warranty and the retailer should replace new one for you. Battery drain usually down to user itself because new phones user so eager to use their phone endlessly, so chill out. Disable wifi if not use and disable other functions if not really needed, it saves battery. Not just for HTC, but for all phones for that matter.

Well at the 12th HTC released a update to the Sensation that upgrades the system to Android 2,3,4 and it makes the system more smooth in the home screens and even in the menu... so im glad that it finally feels like the Evo 3D even though it has about 200 mb less ram.

Poor battery performance, speaker broke down within 2 weeks, glass broke after 4 weeks due to a drop on the beach . . .

In general to me a poor product due to the mechanical problems.

Within a month this HTC does not make a sound, the glass is broken and the battery has to be charged twice a day....

If that is what you´re looking for be as stupid as I was and choose the ´sensation´ . . .

only charge when the battery is under 15 % and push it as close to 0 as possible, it may be twice a day but ALWAYS let the phone fully charge. Sooner than later you'll have full day worth and only be charging at night.. I was getting 7 hours to a charge when I first got the phone, 16-19 hours now
