Design

We're used to HTC making great hardware, but even we were blown away by the Sensation 4G. The smartphone features a gorgeous 4.3-inch qHD Super LCD, and unlike other 4.3-inch touch devices, the Sensation is quite sleek and the tapered edges make it more comfortable in the hand.

Camera

On the back, you'll find the Sensation 4G's 8-megapixel camera and dual-LED flash. With the dual-core processor, the smartphone can capture and play back 1080p HD video. There is also a front-facing VGA camera for video calls.

Picture quality

We haven't had the best experience with HTC's camera phones, so we feared the Sensation 4G would be similar. However, picture quality was great.
