Me too. reading reviews for the last 4 hours and they all contradict each other - good battery/ bad battery, good reception / crap reception and so on.

So much flaws. Upper and lower parts of the housing aren't solidly built. Lower part of screen rocks during text input, with annoying squeaking sound! Keeps on restarting (4-5x a day). Vibrator/ haptic feedback failed within a month's use. Svc center had to open my phone and replace vibrator. Been trying to reach htc after-sales and executives, NO REACTION from them whatsoever!! Bad after-sales support, HTC!!!

Screen is awesome & processing is fast, camera is amazing... overall on of the best phone as per specs...
Only issue, major one, is battery life, doesn't last whole day... I mean its very hard to use cell with a low battery life.. HTC should develop batter one's than the one in this cell....

HTC will keep it , otherwise they will lose what we call " uniqueness " . Without sense, HTC is just simple. I am waiting for the upgrade too. :) will get it soon.

Hello

I currently own a Sensation XL. I would like to upgrade to an Ice Cream Sandwich device but I'm afraid to lose all of the Sense goodies. On the other hand I don't like the fact that htc has a very laggy interface(pulling down the notification bar, switching between homescreens etc). The Sensation XL is planned for an ICS upgrade but I really dislike the looks of the icons and fonts htc used for Sense. I love how the vanilla ICS looks, i love the fact google has implemented buttons within the screen. I like the HD screen and various other aspect related things the Nexus has. So on one hand I like how the Nexus looks, performs and the fact that it will always receive updates but I am worried I will lose facebook integration, smartdialing and other Sense goodies htc has covered.

TELL ME WHAT TO DO I'M VERY CONFUSED!

I'm using it and the memory is 8.8 Gb for music, pics , video and so on while 3.9 Gb is reserved for apps. Not 12Gb for use and the rest for apps like you said. Don try to give comment if you don own it.
