Excerpt: How does one describe a flagship that pushes nearly all the right buttons, with emphasis on the word nearly. It makes us grit our teeth in exasperation. Because the Sensation is a very nice phone, but it is far from being the deliverance that some among us had pegged it to be.
Pros: Good overall build quality, High resolution display is killer for text and browsing, Packed to the gills with features, Dual core processor makes it quite snappy while future proofing
Cons: Display should have had a better blackness level and contrast, Battery life is lower than we expected, The antenna is weak, and the Sensation tends to lose signal easily, It feels solid, but some parts of the build seem sloppy
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
