Yes the battery life aint great and the antenna resides in the back cover which curves around the phone. I actually like the feel of the phone in my hand but battery life especially when on wifi is not the best.

I also don't like the 1gb of internal memory although one can put a 32gb memory card inside.

If you are not too much of a phone freak then you can live with it. It is fast, nice screen, nice pictures, nice videos.



So you got a Sensation then mate? Thought it was gonna be the SGS2?!

Had a Desire before, so definitely a fan of HTC, but the Samsung has won through for me on its size and weight, the lovely super AMOLED, and most important of all... unlocked bootloader!

Got one but that is going to a mate when I get the SGSII. I love the Amoled too much. It has to be the SGSII or bust. I am new to android though so will wait for the Samsung to start tinkering with bootloaders.

Hopefully I get it next month.

Thanks Masseur for that input
I decided to get Sensation anyway,
When testing both again I felt the HTC felt better in my hand,
The Galaxy felt plasticy and was huge to hold.

The Sensation housing felt more worth it to.
Vodafone allowed me to keep my 20 tariff to 300mins 3000 texts and 1gb data,
The phone was 105 and Galaxy was 35 more

Have looked at phone yet waiting for a Mofi case to turn up for it before I mess with it
Nice tho the weather app is so kewl

Why do you need a weather app? Just look out the window and save battery power

Nice MissUK that you are getting one. I like it but my thing is the SGSII but it does feel really good in the hand.

Tell us what you think of it.

Enjoy!

I feel like im the only actual person on this forum
With one of these yes using now to scribble in here

Btw I cant be bothered writing a review on it,
If you read what I wrote above how I felt upon buying it,
Then its still that way.

Its a great phone no problems at all with it,
Really fast does everything I need it to do.

It looks good feels expensive.
All im waiting for is htc to launch an array of coloured
Backs for it cos thats the genius of this phone if u damage ur back
It totally comes of and ur left with the screen so a htc with changeable
Fascias eventually.

The wifi and antena are on these backs so buying backs of eBay
Might be risky overall lol

Load of shit imo. Dr.Dre a bad attitude rapper who glamorizes violence says some headphones are good just cos they got bass What happened to clarity of music?? And just cos it has his name on does it mean they are good?? No. I hate the guy

Its Quite nice that hans
would've of been better if HTC had done that to the 0rig sensation (Battery 1.5 processor)
however ive heard it can be done regardless anyway but it ruins the warranty

not that I would do it to mine anyway
battery wise well theres improved one out already
