The hottest Android device of the year is finally here.  Aaron unboxes the HTC Sensation 4G, HTC's newest dual-core wonder.  Powered by a 1.2 GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, it offers a 4.3-inch qHD display, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording, front-facing camera, 1,520 mAh battery, HSPA+ (4G) connectivity, and Android 2.3 with HTC Sense 3.0.

It's the best spec'd Android device available from a US carrier, but it appears to have some lag in select tasks.  Is it the one you should buy, or is the T-Mobile (LG) G2x the best bang for the buck?

Ron McKenna why have a faster phone with ATT when I still cant get even close to 3g speeds in the capital of Calif., Sacramento. Uploads with wifi turned off = .34 mbps, downloads = 784 kbps - 1.2mbps depending on time of day. I have the Inspire 4G running 2.2 Android

Ella Toma
Ella Toma Love my G2x.
Carlos Quinones
Carlos Quinones @Zino. Yea, well my main reason for being unsure about getting is specswise. It feels like it should've had a dual core processor, better camera, and 4g. I actually wouldn't mind the galaxy s2, but who knows when that's hitting T-Mobile. I've also considered the g2x, but it's screen is what's preventing me from wanting it. My friend just bought one recently, and was comparing the screen to my galaxy vibrant. And this screen alone looks better, so I could imagine something like a galaxy s 2. And I've seen some qHD screens that look good as well. I'm also considering an EVO 3D. Might end up going with the Sensation tho
Kennii PrIv LeGu Kalonji
Kennii PrIv LeGu Kalonji will this phone be coming to At&T? i really want it, but the service for t-mobile is very poor in my area. thanks!
Mike Mota
Mike Mota Absolutely my next phone.
Zino Vikman
Zino Vikman @Carlos. I got the Xperia Play and i'm not pleased to say the least! In my opinion it really sucks! Acctually it broke down earlier today, probably only a bad ex. but still. So tomorrow i'm heading in to town to buy either the HTC Sensation or the Samsung Galaxy S2.
Carlos Quinones
Carlos Quinones Deciding between staying on T-Mobile and getting this, or going to Verizon for the xperia play. Either one will be fine. I just want to do more gaming on my phone. The downside to xperia play is no TVs out, but at least it has a slide out gamepad
