This phone is a great phone but it has got a few problems....since my purchase this is the 3rd model i have had the first two had a dust problem where dust always made it into the screen within the first two days... i work in a corporate environment so one can imagine the surprise... all the while i had taken it up with HTC and they were very unhelpful and were not able to resolve the issue...now as i began to charge my 3rd sensation handset it overheated and promptly died... Perhaps I should have gone for the Samsung.

And trust me it doesn't support video call at all. Maybe tango but no one i know uses tango, so why bother installing? Any way as i said before i've bought an iphone4, it's not bad at all so far. Battery is enough to use it one day. Apple store is a pain in the a..! But most apps are free. And i can make skype video calls even on 3G.

There are some applications support with that functionsuch as Tango or Skype but not the one u got from android market at all.. browse it in the web for the Skype video and if u can't find I can send u by email...
Anonymous, 06 Aug 2011how is the battery backup?? If u charge it to 100% how long can it be used?? my brother's got this phone....he gets about a day n half out of a 100% charge. But on weekends when he uses it much, he has to keep it for charging every night(so that makes it one whole day of battery backup).
It has to do with all the internet apps that he uses n the htc senseUI with 3d and an animated wallpaper that he's enabled.
Anonymous, 06 Aug 2011how is the battery backup?? If u charge it to 100% how long can it be used??Battery? Oh boy that's something different. I've used it for two months and the last month with two extra batteries. Standby time doesn't reach 24 hours when all the connections were off (wi-fi, 3g, bluetooth). It doesn't reach one day only on gsm. Still want the numbers for the connections on version? Let's put it this way: Changing the battery two times a day... Sucks! But at least you can change the battery! That is a difference from apple.

I've used it for two months, installed skype nad skype doesn't make video call. Heard that there are some applications similar to skype but the other side must use the same app too. The only thing the front camera is for taking your own picture, there is also an app called "mirror" too (to comb your hair whatever...)! Htc is a good company with a lot of cool smartphones. I believe the recent complications have something to do with the OS. Not that i'm saying android is not good but so many problems showed up with my sensation after system upgrade.
sensation doesn't have video call? i'm actually considering of having sensation but now i'm doubting whether i should go ahead or not~ i'm considering because of htc nice software in terms of the theme and looks kinda cool~ although there are others android phone but htc still the best in the theme~ so i'm wondering htc phone can handle video call or not~ please feedback~ thanks~
I don't have any problem with my HTC sensation , It's work 100 %..

http:... morewhat a load of rubbish that video is....why swipe the unlock ring so fast...? just take your time and it works every time.
I have no problems at all with my sensation that has been mentioned anywhere in these threads, I use wifi all the time at home and never lose signal.

I have observed Incredible S while i was using Desire, and i totally agree agree with you on this one. Way better than Desire and no complications like Sensations. The fact is I didn't buy it at the time because there isn't much difference than Desire. Only the design and the camera has been changed. At least I was expecting a (push & hold for 3 sec to turn on the device) kind of thing. I'm a businessman and travel a lot. Well people around you inside a plane doesn't appreciate the phone turning on by an accidental touch (even when i put it in airplane mode before i switch it off). Anyway, I bought an iphone4 this morning, haven't start to use it yet. Still entering contacts. We'll see if it's better than htc or not.

Intially wifi issue now hang issue in lock screen. Wats wrong with HTC ?
HTC must be strong enough in it's R & D. O/w it can not stand in this competitive market. We never hear abt any error in smartphones of samsung!!!
Tyson, 03 Aug 2011Hey guys. I bought Sensation a while ago. The phone felt very good in hand and i thought it wa... moreHI I am using sensation for 1 month now...i didnt have any issues with the touchscrren. Also my phone had hardly restarted by itself. Regarding Icons, this will be affecting the icons in the SD card. If you change the skin to something else and come back, then the icons will be restored with the original pic. This is becuase of the time delay to read the icon info from the sd card.
Dear Tyson, I have been an HTC user since an age and trust me, The HTC Incredible S is a superb phone. You can use it without worry. The Sensation is a very, very good phone but has issues. Once the Sensation has a proper upgrade or revised, their will be none to touch it. The feel, the display, the new Sense experience is beyond the competition. Cheers.
