I already posted my initial impressions of the HTC Sensation and then followed up with some crazy video camera testing.  I would still like to do a better write up of the amazing HTC Sensation too, but for now here’s a video review of the device to give a quick look. The device released with a locked bootloader but HTC has said they will release an update in the near future that will unlock the device and allow the community developers to create some custom ROM goodness.

This device is amazing and has one the nicest displays HTC has released to date.  This is the device we’ve been all been waiting for and is now available from T-Mobile.


Here’s a quick run-down of the specs:

  • 3G Data Speeds-Yes, Where Available
  • Mobile Hotspot-Yes, Mobile Hotspot Supports Up Tp 8 WiFi-enabled Devices
  • 768mb RAM
  • Built-In 4GB ROM, 1GB Usable Storage, Memory, 8GB microSD Card Included
  • Dimensions 5.0″ x 206″ x 0.4″
  • Expandable Memory Up To 32GB microSD
  • HSPA+, Download Photos, Videos, and Apps At Lightning-fast 4G Speeds
  • micro-USB 2.0 (5-pin) port with mobile high-definition video link (MHL) for USB or HDMI connection
  • Android 2.3
  • 1.2GHz Dual-core Processo - Qualcomm 8260 Dual-core Snapdragon
  • Weight-5.2 Ounces
  • WiFi

    doesnt this have ATT 3G bands on it also? Correct me if Im wrong. I hope, incase of the switch over, i would love to keep my current T-Mobile plan without goin to ATT bullshit and test there waters if the merge happens, probably will. not that im for it. but i would like to try it out, or curious.

    I’ve been using CMod for so long, how many apps support apps to SD nowadays without a MOD?  I just wish HTC would start putting a solid amount of app storage on their phones.

    Love my sensation too.. would love it more if i could find a way to make Launcher Pro work on it. Have tried home switcher and others but can’t keep LP as default home.  Anyone else trying to make this happen?

    not really impress  been using it for about 5 days .. qhd cool and all but make everything small and no way to increase font size.. try recording a video inside of a club,, sounded horrible.. thunderbolt handles high volume recording much better.. phone gets a bit sluggish after some hardcore using.. texts/mms/browsing etc etc.. camera shiooting its not as fast as htc claims .. same speed as the tbolt.. yea.. for better shooting speed turn off preview and auto focus… there is a bug on the messenger.. when phone syncing and u try to text sometimes the conversation just go up to very beginning lol wtf.. imagine scrolling down again 700 texts?  lol
