HTC Sensation

As much as the processor capacity of a phone is an important aspect, the recent rivalry of phone manufacturers over the most powered processors has led to the disregard of other equally important aspects of a phone. This emphasis on the processors was initiated by the release of Nexus One by Google in 2010, and since then, anything short of 1GHz has not been considered among the market leaders. Therefore, HTC Sensation cannot be blamed for taking this trend, as this is the only way of remaining relevant in the current competitive market.
Apart from the processor speed, one notable thing about the hardware of this phone is the huge 4 inch plus display. With a 960×540 pixels resolution on this kind of screen, the icons are crispier and you get more screen content. Even with this, the phone feels quite small and its weight of 148g is not much more than that of iPhone 4. The back cover of this phone is a clear picture of the HTC models, which are usually very difficult to open. The durability of this phone has been enhanced by the Gorilla Glass screen which makes it resistant against scratches. This coupled with the slight cure at the front is a good way of keeping the display intact for long.

Considering this is an Android Smartphone, its 1520 mAh is quite average and not fit for the huge screen and high processor speed. Some of the other problems evident with this phone include low battery life and more profoundly, its WiFi reception problems. The reception is highly affected if the hand covers the entire back plate. On a whole, the HTC sensation is very impressive and the few drawbacks should not be a great concern, as no gadget is perfect.
