The popular HTC Sensation offers everything you could want from a smartphone thanks to its innovative software and powerful hardware. In this article I will take a look at some of the key features which make it such a popular device.
Like the AppStore for Apple devices, the Android Market allows users of the HTC Sensation to browse over half a million apps which can be downloaded to the handset. There are numerous categories such as health and fitness, games, entertainment, productivity and shopping categories to name but a few. Combined with the powerful hardware the phone has, this makes the HTC Sensation an extremely versatile device. Whether you use your phone for business or personal use, you are sure to find a long list of apps which suit your needs and allow you to customise the phone with the apps you choose.
When choosing a new smartphone, one of the most important features for many is the camera. The HTC Sensation does not disappoint in this respect, thanks to an 8 megapixel camera which operates at a resolution of 3264x 2448 resulting in high quality still images. Features such as face detection, image stabilisation, LED flash and autofocus are all included to improve results whilst keeping it easy to use. The camera can also be used to shoot video in 1080p, so it doubles up as a handy HD camcorder. When you have used to camera, you can choose to instantly upload you photos and videos to Facebook, Twitter or YouTube thanks to shortcuts within the camera interface which runs on HTC Sense, the manufacturer’s innovative custom Android interface.
A smartphone would not be a smartphone without the ability to browse the internet. This is another are where the HTC Sensation really impresses. Wi-Fi offers the optimum connection thanks to fast speeds, less battery use than 3G, and it does not use up your data allowance. If you are unable to connect to a W-Fi network, you can still use the phone’s 3G connection to connect to the internet whereby data download speeds of up to 14.4 Mbps are available. This means that web pages load quickly, and YouTube video stream with minimal buffering. The internet browsing software is provided as part of the Sense UI package, and offers many innovative features whilst remaining easy to use.
Of course there are many more impressive features found on the HTC Sensation, but the areas I have outlined in this article are some of the most important features for many users. While HTC has got these basics right, there are plenty of other features which make it an impressive smartphone, such as HTC Sense UI, 1.2 GHz dual-core processor and plenty of widgets which can be downloaded from HTC Hub.
The HTC Sensation is available now on several major UK networks, several of which are currently offering the handset for free on selected tariffs.
