  Sensational, apart from the signal

| | See all Oldngrey's reviews (1)

Ive had this phone for about a year now and at first i thought i had a weak signal in the area i live in, only when i put my sim into an older non android phone(when the top button on the sensation broke) did i realise the problem is with the HTC..i can rarely get any signal and never a strong one but the old phone had a full 5 bars everywhere i went !, apart from that the phone is a fantastic bit of kit, fast, clear screen and does all i need it to do, apart from the poor signal. This issue alone is making me think twice about another HTC when i eventually upgrade. Having read other reviews it seems not an uncommon problem :-(

This is the first time I've felt compelled to write a review here on Play.com. I've had the HTC Sensation for just over 2 months now and I am extremely pleased with it's performance, especially now it's been updated free of charge to Google's latest Android O/S 'Ice Cream Sandwich'.
HTC Sense User Interface is the slickest and cleanest I've ever used.
Previously owned an Apple iPhone 3GS and the Galaxy S2 - the HTC feels more rugged than the Samsung's thin plastic offering and more ergonomic in the hand than the Apple's. I've been impressed with the performance of this phone in all applications. I would recommend the use of a stylus if you surf and search the internet a lot - just makes for a more seemless experience as I have large fingers which prove problematic on ALL smartphone keyboards. I'll not be upgrading this phone for some time as it does all I need for half the price of the latest models now coming out.

  Good But Bad

| | See all rl75uk's reviews (2)

Nice phone and nice features but be careful buying this phone as after 30 days any problems have to go via HTC. I have had this phone since December 2011 and already a screen has been replaced due to dust getting under the screen and now the microphone has stopped working so i am unable to make or receive calls.

  Fab phone!

This is a great phone - better than any iPhone. Looks great & is so user-friendly. I don't like a fussy phone but I do want it to do its job well - this definitely fits the bill. Highly recommended

Ive had this phone for about a week and half now and have to say its perfect i spent alot of time reading reviews and looking on em on youtube with it going against the sansung galaxy s2 i have to say on some of those review the phone seem slow but mine has been perfect loads massive web pages in seconds. I prevesly have had iphone 4 3gs and htc desire and had a play around with the saunsung galaxy s2 and have to say to me the htc wins un like the desire you can now watch bbc iplayer and download full hd movies or rent them for around 3 pound aswel and obvasly better and faster in every way compared to the desire.As for the htc against the sansung galaxy s2 well lets just say the s2 has got nothing that compairs to the sensations interface the s2 is boring dull yes the colour screens better in day light and if you watch it at an angle but who gonna do that! also the so to build quality is rubbish tacky plastics and sansung screen dont tend to last long mabe this phones different but my girlfiend was a big fan of saunsung but her phone screen kept on going same when she upgraded to the galaxy one all in all the sansung might be a bit faster on the internet but if you want a phone thats well built and can do everthing then you aught to look past the slight difference in speed and get the htc sensation. AS i keep saying how good the htc is here is the bad part htc just released a new phone called the htc sensation xe 1.5g prossecor loads of extra this phone been at for three to four months absolutly shocked and annoyed at htc disgracful treatment to bring out a better version when alot of fans have got this phone im that anoyed that next time im gonna get another iphone the easyier to text and at least apple respects its customers enough to weight a year before releasing a better one ! if you have complain to htc about what theyve done!

  Great iPhone replacement

| | See all TechnoPatat's reviews (1)

I used to have an iPhone, but when that broke way to early and was to expensive i started searching for a replacement! A friend of mine tipped me for HTC and i orderd a Sensation! I got it since release now and i couldn't be happyer with it! Realy fast, smooth phone, good internet performance and apps run great as well! Only problem i experience is when i'm in Landscape mode, the WiFi might drop off and even the Edge or 3G signal can be lost.

But otherwise: I Love HTC Sense, the HTC Sync app works great to and the phone is sublime!

Totally amazing phone, have been eagerly awaiting the release. Yes you can feel the quality in your hands and yes it is blazing fast, everythign works and havent had any problems. Only thing that lets it down is the lack of HD and large screen compatible apps on the android store. However that being said the new sense UI makes this phone one awesome bit of kit.
