Conclusion: The HTC Sensation is no doubt one of the top Android smartphones for 2011. With a very high resolution 4.3” touch screen, dual core CPU, 4G HSPA and 1080p video recording, it’s hard not to be tempted.
Pros: Top specs on all counts, runs latest version of Android. HTC Sense still one of the best Android customizations, excellent battery life, lovely design.
Cons: Super LCD tech doesn't compare to IPS and Super AMOLED. Benchmark numbers aren't astounding.
Summary: If you’ve got your heart set on a HTC device and you’re looking for an upgrade, but were unimpressed with the Desire S and Incredible S, then the HTC Sensation is the one for you. In this respect, the Sensation is a true successor to the original Desire’s crown as HTC’s best device to date
Pros: Great build quality, gorgeous display, Android 2.3, Sense 3.0 UI, decent camera and video facilities, easy-to-remove back panel
Cons: Slightly heavy, battery isn't great, a little laggy at times

Summary: The HTC Sensation combines a large, qHD display with an excellent unibody aluminium design. It may not feel as snappy as other dual-core Android phones, nor offer anything hugely new or innovative over previous HTC models, but it remains a great smartphone.
Pros: Premium unibody design, qHD display, Slick Android and Sense software
Cons: Battery life, Doesn't feel as snappy as other dual-core phones, Slow camera
