i dont have touch screen issues but i face sudden application close issues. e.g opera closes itself while loading pages without expectation. also some games do it too. ninjump makes pixellation issue. my htc sense even pixellates itself. i have to restart my phone to solve it. i dont if all results from application bugs or phone itself
I have had my Sensation since the day it came out back in June. Of the many problems this phone has (despite being exchanged once and sent back to HTC twice now), the touchscreen issue has become the worst. I am completely unable to even use the phone when it is charging. Either the screen doesn't respond at all, or it just freaks out and becomes entirely confused, quickly changing screens, resizing, exiting apps, etc... Basically acting schizophrenic. Typing a text is IMPOSSIBLE. When not plugged in, the issues are less severe: the screen will be less responsive, specifically when unlocking the phone, zooming in/out, or swiping through pages.
I've had a HTC sensation for two weeks now and I have had some problems with the touchscreen as well. The screen will work well and then stop responding for no reason, eventually it will start working again. The same problem happens when I'm typing text, it seems to come and go. I'm not sure if removing the battery helps or if the phone is just in a 'good mood' afterwards. The WIFI has been a minor issue as well, having a good connection one minute and then almost loosing it the next, this problem seems to be correcting itself somehow. I like the phone but I'm disappointed in it for these reasons, especially having to return it after two weeks.
My Sensation works well, but the abttery was poor, bought a larger battery and still lasted a half day or so.
Update three days ago has solved this completely!
Now I am afraid the next one will break it!
My sensation is also having touch screen problem, I'm on ny 7th sensation this 1 work for about a good month and now its doing it again. Also another problem that I haven't seen people talk about is that when I take a video in 1080p some times it will not play back until I reboot the phone. I hate to say this but at this point I hate this phone. I have always bought HTC phones but don't know if I will ever buy another 1. Hope htc takes the time to read some of the consumer comments and do the right thing
get your htc's senssor change if any body facing the prob of screen magically opening applications it self...its about 3000 pkr
my sensation will occasionally reboot itself,sometimes the lockscreen will be half black with the ring in the middle
i am ussing htc sense from last 3 months i am facing the problem with touch screen some time when i recieve call the call can not be picked as the proble arise with the dragging of the screen the application starts by its self and the applications are remove by its own outomatically the application and gagets are selectted always the screen dont respond
Have had the sensation for 2 months. First 3 weeks I owned the phone my touchscreen would randomly stop working and could not unlock the phone. i never performed a master reset and it magically started working fine again until today and it has started having issues again. Pulling the battery does not fix the problem. Seems to be an issue with majority of phones. Htc says they should have an update to fix down the road.
its not an htc issue .. i hav htc incredible s but im facing no probs and my cell is working totally fine
I work in a mobile shop and we haven't had any issues with our HTC Sensation that is on display and has been for well into 3 weeks now but I am having touch screen issues with my own personal HTC Desire S. When I'm typing it isn't recognizing certain letters unless I choose something else then backspace and try again.. its really frustrating at times! But its rare that it happens and I still swear by HTC, its the only issue I've ever had with a HTC Android phone, and I've had a few now.. :)
Purchased the htc sensation. I want to keep the phone but will return it as I am having connectivity issues. I am on the proper plan. When I called Tmobile, I was informed that they are recieving alot of complaints and that they are waiting for the company to send out a patch to correct the problem....not waiting and will get another phone as mine is only 5 days old....sad! NOTHING SENSATIONAL ABOUT THIS!
im using desire hd am also facing the death grip and touch screen issue.. so I guess its not only a sensation issue. Its htc issue! But all I do is just restart the app and it'll be fine..
I have this issue and i am pissed as hell.. cuz i really like the phone.. stupid touchscreen issue is a turn off
Just restart your phone, no bugs during several days. I assume that during August there will be official update, that will solve this issue. In fact phone is super awesome!
For a better entertainment experience, performance, better display, camera ... samsung GS2 is your pick but for a more personal experience, socializing, messaging, better UI appeal & personalizing, looks then sensation is your pick....
Surprisingly its not only the touch screen but when making or receiving call display disappears and than i have to remove the battery and restart to make it work!!!!!!!!
My sensation has the exact same toucscreen issues decribed in your post
I am also finding thid a problem... it doesnt seem to recognise that iv pressed anything on the screen. it tends to happen most when im in the Android Market, or when im in the Facebook app! Iv only had the phone just over a week, and to be honest im a bit fed up with it. If i could end the contract i would but as i took it out with tesco.. i only have 7 days and as im over that now- i cant cancel! :( i wish i had never betrayed BlACKBERRY for a HTC.... i never had ANY problems with my blackberry!!!!
htc desire Z. i have some problems with hardware keyboard. when i want to type sms, email, or anything, some of the keys has other meaning. ex: S-save. G-gmail. and so on...
