    I got my HTC Sensation about a month ago now, and it still never ceases to amaze me. I've never grown bored of it, as I had done with my previous HTC Wildfire. My poor iPad 2 hasn't had a look in since this device arrived! The best part for me has to be the screen combined with the HTC Sense interface - simply drop dead gorgeous. Absolutely recommend to anyone. Well done HTC - Keep up the good work! :D

    I have owned my sensation 4g for a few months now. It was the stand out phone at the time i got it even when the android market was flooded with new headsets. It is still a contender and when it receives ICS it will be a powerhouse once again. The camera is amazing with the quick speed at which it captures images. The body has a sturdy and durable feel. I am not a huge fan of HTC's Sense UI but it is easy to use and well developed. Overall the phone has been a joy to have.

    Have owned this phone for several months and is the best phone that was available at the time. It does seem to be forgotten about as the phone and its specifications easily match the newer Gingerbread phones out there.

    The display on the phone is superb, colours are not washed out but the brightness level is too low for me. Audio quality is superb for a phone and comes close to the iPhone 4S. One thing that lets this phone down badly is the battery life. I can barely get a day's normal-light use out of the phone, and as soon as I start using Facebook or making a call, the battery just falls through the floor. I am on my third battery from HTC so I am thinking this is something to do with the phone, but this is my review of the use of my phone.

    I simply love this phone, everything about it is top notch. The screen is great and I'm sure the added pixels make up for the less vivid colors compared to AMOLED screens. I can agree that HTC sense isn't perfect but I do prefer it over all other skins, in my opinion it's the only one that seems sophisticated and doesn't reduce your phone to some child's toy. It adds some visual beauty that has it's place in Android 2.3 but I do believe it would be better if they don't take it with them to ICS.
