T-Mobile Sensation 4G Review

The approach of the T-Mobile Sensation 4G may have been keeping Android fans awake at night, but I wasn't one of them. I have to admit, I haven't been feeling HTC's recent handsets. Sure, they're well made and reliable, but it also felt like the company had taken a cookie-cutter approach, churning out little-changed me-too phones across the carriers.

T-Mobile Sensation 4G Officially Announced

The fine folks at T-Mobile have sent out a press release regarding the new king of HTC devices, the HTC Sensation 4G.

Sensation vs. Galaxy S II: Does qHD make a difference?

Sensation vs. Galaxy S II: Does qHD make a difference?

One of the lingering questions after our HTC Sensation review earlier this week was just how much of a difference the smartphone's qHD 960 x 540 resolution display makes over the regular crop of WVGA 800x 480 phones. More pressingly, does Samsung's Super AMOLED Plus panel on the Galaxy S II, with its surfeit of sub-pixels, hold a candle to the Sensation. There's only one way to find out: some uber-high-resolution photos in a GSII/Sensation shoot out!

Now, with dominant market-share and increasingly polished handsets, the battle is between 'droids. Into the fray drops the HTC Sensation, the company's new dual-core flagship. It's certainly the best-spec'd HTC to date, but is it enough to beat Samsung's all-conquering Galaxy S II? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

HTC Sensation unboxing & first-impressions [Video]

We had high expectations for HTC's first dual-core smartphone, and the company delivered with the HTC Sensation. A mixture of evolution and revolution, the family resemblance is clear: a 4.3-inch display like the Desire HD, only now running at qHD 960 x 540 resolution; a Snapdragon processor like the Desire S, only now Qualcomm's new 1.2GHz dual-core MSM8260 processor; and HTC Sense, only v3.0 with a new intelligent lock-screen and HTC Watch for video rentals and downloads.
