HTC Sensation



Overview of HTC Sensation


The HTC Sensation is the stunning new Android 2.3 Gingerbread smartphone from HTC. Also known as the HTC Pyramid, the Sensation features a dual-core processor and 8MP rear facing camera.

Essentially, the HTC Sensation is the follow up to the HTC Desire HD, but offers double the power, an improved camera and a refreshed design. With its dual-core processor, the Sensation competes with the likes of the LG Optimus 2X and the Samsung Galaxy S II, while its 8MP Camera gives the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc a run for its money.

Featuring a 4.3-inch qHD Super-LCD screen, the HTC Sensation gives you plenty of space to view any snaps and videos that you capture with the 8MP camera. The camera features also include a dual-LED flash, face detection and geo-tagging, meaning you can take high quality pictures and easily remember the location.

The HTC Sensation comes loaded with Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) and the new version of HTC's custom Android skin, HTC Sense 3.0. There's a range of superb features offered by HTC Sense, including in-car navigation assistance, enhanced social media functions, and the ability to hush an incoming call with the 'Flip To Silence' feature.

As dubbed by HTC, the Sensation is a 'multimedia superphone'. The new HTC Watch service offers movies on demand which can be enjoyed on the device's large screen. When it comes to media sharing, there are plenty of options; DLNA capability offers the ability to wirelessly stream photos and videos to a compatible TV, while MHL technology provides HDMI out via the microUSB port.

  • Matthew 20/5/2011 Recommend to a friend? Yes
    Hands down the best Android phone made. Thin, light, huge bright hi-res screen. Full 1080p video recording. HTS Sense makes the OS just a little bit nicer than stock. When this gets Android 3.X with hardware acceleration it's just going to get even faster.
  • Wael N. Fikry 22/6/2011 Recommend to a friend? Yes
    Superb Quality with lots of on-board goodies, as usual, HTC has did it again! Well done HTC you keep impressing and Inspiring us!
  • Caz 27/12/2011 Recommend to a friend? Yes
    I have the sensation se excellent phone, it's performance is just so fast, there are other HTC mobiles in our household, this by far is the very best. I just wish I could have the xe with the beats as I love listening to music on mine and have a very large card to accommodate this! Oh battery life is not as I would like but if you use the widget on your desktop, to turn off all the things you don't use all the time, like gps, or wifi or even hsdpa then you will save huge amounts. So I will award it 5 stars because I believe in the product, oh & HTC uk is excellent, unlike Samsung who I have never been able to get hold of!
  • Chris 17/8/2011 Recommend to a friend? Yes
    Liking the Sensation more after longer term use. Battery life has definitely improved. Latest version of HTC Sense is great to use. Despite size of the screen, the phone doesn't seem too large. All features I've used have worked well.
  • Rustem 10/8/2011 Recommend to a friend? Yes
    Nice phone. Hope the price will drop soon to be competitive with other shops... and I will definitely order one. Thank to Clove team for my previous phone - HTC Incredible S.
