HTC Sensation First Look (with Video)

HTC Sensation First Look (with Video)


HTC just announced their latest flagship Android device – The HTC Sensation, and wow, what a phone it is. It has the usual ‘HTC’ quality build, and the specs are just as impressive.

  • 1.2Ghz Dual Core Processor, which makes it just as fast as the Samsung Galaxy S II
  • Massive 4.3inch touchscreen (with 540 x 960 resolution)
  • Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)
  • Their new an improved ‘Sense UI’ (explained later)
  • 768MB of RAM (memory), which isn’t as much as we would have expected, but it will do
  • 8 Mega-pixel Back Camera, with Full High Definition 1080p Video recording

The New Phone also features their new ‘Sense UI’ (User interface) Lockscreen, which is considered smart because it is now a ‘live’ smartscreen where you can check stocks, weather, and you can unlock the phone directly by dragging a bubble to the unlock circle, which should make it easier, and quicker, to get to Facebook to update that all important status you’ve been wanting since your last update 10 minutes ago. I actually don’t mind the look of the new unlock feature, and you can see how it works in the Video at the bottom.

If you ask me, this phone looks like a direct competitor to the Samsung Galaxy S II which we previewed a few days ago. Both these phones will clearly be extremely powerful phones to use, and we hope that by the time we get our hands on them, that we might finally be able to choose between the two (without tearing my hair out). Continue scrolling down for some more pictures and videos, and more details will be released as this phone gets closer to launch.

All I know so far is that this phone looks VERY promising, and I would love to get my hands on one of them to do a full review, but from paper and the video below, it also looks like one of the ‘To-Get’ Phones of 2011. Either way, enjoy a First Look at the HTC Sensation in the video below, as well as the HTC Sensation promo video from HTC. Tell us what you think about the phone in the comments section below!
