I had HTC Desire before and was a perfect phone the only problem was the internal memory capacity. I think as being a very heavy user and a die hard fan of Android. But, had to part with it because of having to upgrade it to the latest OS Gingerbread. So, choose HTC Sensation as it was only phone that was available with GB. I was given option of SG2 but i do not like Samsung even if they make a great phone. Anyway this is how i got my HTC Sensation. It just been two weeks that i have HTC Sensation. The phone is really good and don't have any complains with it. However, using it thoroughtly i have come to notice few isssues with the phone.
1. Sometimes, it just hangs or freezes with black blank screen and have to pull out the battery to restart it. There is no other option for it to reboot the phone.
2. When the phone restarts the icon just vanishes and shows the default Android icon. However, i have found a solution for this but this is just temporary. Hope this might get fixed on future updates.
3. Screen bleeds on some widgets for example; power control widget, calendar widget, twitter widgets, etc.
Apart from the above mention problem the phone is near perfect. I wanted this phone watching the HTC presentation by product manager from HTC but it would be a shame if what he told in the presentation and the phone actually running live. Hope HTC will solve this problem in future updates. I was very much in love with my HTC Desire and was sad to part with it. If i have money will get that same phone if the shop owner have not sold it yet. If you have any suggestions for the above problem please kindly share it with us.
AnonD-8404, 14 Jul 2011it really has that deathgrip issues with its wifi signals???No it works perfekt, I have been using my sensation since it came out and it works perfekt even if I try to block the signals.
Best Phone i ever Had... But needs more battery power and WiFi signal strength..apart from that the HTC SENSE is for sure QUIETLY BRILLIANT.
interesting reading the comments regarding the SGS2 vs the sensation.
Being a very happy owner of the SGS2, i would agree the HTC sensation's build quality is superior, though that isnt to say the SGS2 is built poorly. For a phone so thin, it is amazingly robust.
secondly, there is no question that the cortex-A9 CPU+Mali 400MP GPU work together like a dream. The SGS2 beats everything quite easily with its raw power. Try Web browsing; the sensation doesn't come close. Tegra2 is a bit disappointing I feel.
Touchwiz vs HTC sense = no contest, sense
guess it all comes down to what you want!
galaxy s2, 12 Apr 2011samsung galaxy s2 is the best android phone ever :))GS2 in better in screen view from any angle and camera... other than that looks, ergonomics, quality, UI, and feel - HTC Sensation is pretty much the best...
AnonD-8700, 13 Jul 2011This is really disappointing to note that such fantastic specs belittled by that TINY internal... moreIt comes with internal memory for apps, etc. You can always extend memory with Micro SD cards. Apple has 16 and 32 GB memory but you cannot add more memory.
Reading this article i kept thinking how superior the galaxy s ii seemed to be but then in the end it turns out you like the sensation best?
This is really disappointing to note that such fantastic specs belittled by that TINY internal memory of 1GB. Dont know what is HTC's problem with internal memories. Quite wondering for sometime as all phones of HTC sport around 1 or 1.5 GB internal memory, is 4 GB or 8GB memory so costly. Even cheap local chinese touch phones are sporting 4 or 8 GB internal memory. Quite difficult to understand. Secondly, what is holding HTC from incorporating 1800 mAH battery. HTC as i call it HIGH TENSION CELLPHONE.
Update to the latest software update and you will see the battery improves...
Especially in standby mode...
Is there any way to make video call using secondary camera?its must.
I LOVE this device, if you can i would suggest you get the unlocked version rather than the t-mo version... but great toy, only issue is the... um... hold on...oh the battery life which MOST android phones have problems with due to its power consumption which really is not much of a deal to me
Guys any idea about antenna problem ? i haven't signal in urban subway! ( even for WiFi ?)
Please check your software update,
It's now available on OTA..
plz suggest me how can i use video calling , like video skype , if it will not work i will get it back
I got the phone yesterday.
I find it an excellent device. Experienced no problems with low volume etc. Battery life is short though but what to expect of dual core 1.2ghz cpu?
Just taken delivery of the HTC Sensation on Vodafone. Great apart from one thing. Sound quality is DREADFUL hissy as an old AM Radio-as bad as a Motorola mr30 back in 1996-the WORST handset I ever owned.Think this is faulty so back to Vodafone in Nottingham tomorrow for an exchange!
