"QHD Display is crisp, crisper than the amoled Screens in Gs2 Variants, but colors don't pop."

The 960*540 pixel display doubled up with the LCD screen gives you sharp text and no pixelation is noticeable, but the colors aren't nearly as saturated or vibrant on the Samsung phones with super amoled technology. Hence the Samsung Vibrant.
Call quality was decent, but here in suburban Connecticut, the reception was limited.(usually 1 bar of T-mobile's HSPA+ 4g network) Speed tests were as expected from HSPA+ with maximum speeds around 9mbps in the city and average speeds at about 4mbps.
The battery life is very short, I was getting about 2 hours of battery life, however, I am an intensive user who uses high end HD games such as Shadowgun, or Modern Combat 3, after all, I am 13.
Processor performance was reasonable, the qualcomm snapdragon s3 proccessor had trouble and lagged in demanding functions like navigating flash enabled websites, or scrolling through Sense 3.0. Basic functions like text messages had no problem keeping up. When playing games however, the Adreno 220 gpu had no problems and breezed through graphic intensive games.
The Google Play Store is gathering quality apps and is starting to resemble IOS' Market, yet still lacks some games that I have on my Apple Iphone 4.
Once again, HTC has scored high on design as you can expect. The phone had a nice 16:9 aspect ratio and fit comfortably in my hand (better than some of the earlier devices *HTC EVO 4G*. The device feels sturdy and is made of a nice soft touch material with metal accents. The sturdy build makes it just the right weight. I rated a perfect 5 on design/form factor.

HTC Sensation 4G Review by Aaron


HTC Sensation 4G Review by...
Building upon the success of flagship Android phones like the EVO 4G, and ThunderBolt, HTC's at it again with the Sensation 4G .  Available now at T-Mobile, the phone is awesome on paper: 1.2 GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording capabilities, and Android 2.3 with HTC Sense 3.0, just to name a few of the high-end specifications.  It's feature-packed, that's for sure, but in today's mobile world, Android phones launch on a weekly... more...
