why did you get a sensation then? to me, sense UI is the single-best thing about HTC devices and is the one (and only) reason i miss HTC (i dont miss their inferior hardware to samsung, though.)

HTC have great looking phones as well.

Spec wise, there are better phones to buy when comparing to the Sensation. But design wise, HTC are top. Phone and software

this ^^

in 2 months time i hope the plans with telstra will be a little cheaper for the sensation... its either that or a SGS2, and i think im pretty much set on the sensation. only lacking thing i can see is the internal storage, and the clarity of the screen... the htc screen is higher res though

already picked out a car charger / handsfree kit for it

After a few months of use, im not totally happy about the Sensation..

Screen responsiveness is of a concern, battery does drain out sometimes to quick and grip of death is another issue.

Oh well another year of it or if something fantastically good comes along i may jump ship.

MIUI is up for sensation.

Pretty solid release, no bugs for me found yet.

So I changed the digitizer on my phone, and now the screen has about 5 seconds of not detecting input properly when the screen first turns on.

ANy ideas what might cause this?

Sensation just got an upgrade to the Sensation XE. Bit of extra processing power and battery life supposively. Too bad about the memory staying put.

Oh snap!
This is good news if it's coming to Telstra exclusively.
Will mean cheaper Sensation 1.0s

I was literally planning on buying the Sensation this weekend, but I might hold off now for another month if the XE comes to Telstra.
