First impressions are this is the HTC phone we've been waiting for

Refreshed version of HTC Sense ; Great screen, with inset glass ; Blisteringly fast

Screen isn't as good as others ; Battery life is terrible ; Cost of HDMI adaptor

In many ways the HTC Sensation is outstanding. The metal build is exactly what we expect from a smartphone of this calibre. Performance is exceptionally good, loading programs quickly, ensuring the phone never feels slow. HTC Sense is great too; sure...

HTC handset gets rebooted with Ice Cream Sandwich

Updated to Ice Cream Sandwich ; Great screen ; Contacts and social networking implementation is top-notch ; Fantastic keyboard

Seven home screens not expandable ; Autofocus can be erratic ; Resizing video for MMS issue

The HTC Sensation XE is an excellent mobile and for any audiophile out there, this sound be taken into serious consideration.

Yet another Android 2.3 Gingerbread phone, the Beats Audio-equipped HTC Sensation XE is billed as a music nut's dream. Is it just what the Dr (Dre) ordered?

Bass-blasting Beats Audio ; Speedy performance ; Good build quality

Light on built-in storage ; Non-AMOLED screen ; Beats doesn’t suit all music

Despite being a revamped Sensation, the Sensation XE’s extra power and the addition of Beats Audio (plus quite possibly the best headphones ever to be packaged with a phone) mean it’s no mere ‘special edition’.

HTC Sensation XE review

 

We've seen a trend in 2011 that we didn't really see in previous years: the "update phone". HTC kicked off 2011 with a wide range of "S" models and we've had "plus" models from Motorola and Samsung. The pace of change sees Android manufacturers...

Powerful handset, great audio performance with great headphones in the box, good screen, responsive camera

wkward timing means it doesn't deliver the latest from Sense or Android, Beats isn't integrated throughout, sometimes Sense doesn't make sense

An accomplished handset, the HTC Sensation XE is a comprehensive device out of the box, but it is an incremental upgrade over the older version and Beats offers more in terms of cool brand value than anything else.

HTC's dual-core wonder finally arrives - let battle commence!

Premium build ; Fast operation ; Pin-sharp screen ; Accurate keyboard ; Slick 3D animations

Awful battery life ; Still poor in direct light ; Video player erratic ; Power button slightly lost ; Camera needs to be faster

The HTC Sensation is the Taiwanese company's flagship 2011 device. Announced in April, it's now in in our hands for a full review, which some might see as quite a quick turn around, but in the flesh it doesn't feel rushed. The HTC Sensation is set to...

Great design, HTC Sense 3.0 is packed full of detail, great screen, smooth running and stable

Some might find that HTC Sense takes over too much of the experience, but otherwise it's only minor niggles

A stunning phone that will be hugely popular, offering an almost unparalleled out-of-the box expereince

First Look: HTC Sensation review

 

Power, HTC Watch brings easy access to movies, lock screen options are comprehensive, latest version of Android

Too soon to tell, but there is the chance that HTC Sense governs your device experience a little too much

The HTC Sensation has the spec sheet to make it competitive with the other headline handsets arriving this year and it looks to be the most fully featured and powerful delivery of HTC Sense so far. The Sense experience is a comprehensive reworking of...

Can HTC's latest flagship take on the rest of the superphone brigade?

Large, high resolution screen ; Super fast dual-core processor ; Good camera with bright LEDs ; Beautiful chassis design

Poor battery life ; Screen quality could be better

Running below the screen are the four standard Android buttons, which are all touch sensitive. They're responsive and unlike some touch buttons we didn't find them ever getting in the way and resulting in accidental activation. The lack of physical...
