Advantages Looks Good, very easy to Use
Disadvantages Battery life could be better
I was an iPhone user and very proud of it! I managed to get my 3GS 16GB iPhone in February 2010 for free on a £35 / month contract and was happy that I had beaten the system to a certain extent!Unfortunately, my contract came up for expiry and I was faced with a challenge – do I just continue with my contract and my perfectly fine 18 month old phone or do I get a new toy? No contest really!
So, next question, iPhone or not? If I do go with it then I would have to pay for a new phone (bleugh!) as well as an increased cost per month due to my excessive usage and the reduction of free data that comes with a new plan. Alternatively, I could make the dreaded move to Android and get a better phone for free, cheaper contract but I would have to sacrifice the magnitude of apps available from Apple. After much deliberation I went for the Android and then decided that the HTC Sensation would be the right phone for me. To be honest, one of the deciding factors was that I was able to send my old 3GS off to one of these recycling companies and get £150 for it!So, why the HTC Sensation? Its simple really, its one of the best phones out there both technically and visually. I wont go too into detail about the specifications but its important to point out a few main ones:
- 4.3 inch touch screen
- Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS
- 1.2Ghz dual core processor
- 768MB RAM
- 126mm x 65mm x 11mm
- 8MP Camera with HD video capabilities.
Looking at the dimensions of the phone, it should measure up to be quite big yet somehow it manages to feel quite small. The phones weighs about 150g and has a very nice curvature around it which means it fits nicely in your hand. It is made of hardened plastic but apparently has elements of aluminium as well.Looking at the front of the phone, you will see a nice 4.3 inch screen with 4 buttons at the bottom of the handset – home, menu, back and search. At the top of the phone you will find a video camera, speaker and a notification light.
On the left hand side of the phone you will find the micro usb slot used for charging and connecting up to the computer as well two big buttons for turning the volume up or down.On the right hand side there is nothing to be seen.
On the top of the phone you will find the 3.5mm headphone jack as well as the sleep / power button.
