GALLERY: HTC Sensation images and spec sheet

We’ll manage one final mention of the HTC Sensation for today, thanks to HTC sending out a collection of official photographs and the proper tech spec sheet for its brand new Android “superphone” – and HTC has just made its official HTC Sensation mini site live, too.

We’ll make the Sensation’s spec listing the biggest image. We know what you’re like:

    Up to now I was hoping the 1 GB internal memory was a bad joke! How can that be? “All the other” “high-end-devices” come with much more storage capacity :-‘(

      I KNOW RIGHT! To be honest…it was the 1 GB (which will be cut down once Sense, Contacts and all other stuff goes one there) that simply sold the Galaxy S II over the Sensation. Before I found this, the decision between them was hard (because I generally prefer the shape of the Sensation)

    daniela – its not really a deal breaker. Android can only reconise about 2gigs of internal storage for apps, any more and it buggers up the android market anyway. If you have something like the samsung galaxy s, that has 8bg internal, it actualy has 2 gig for internal memory, and 6gig for internal sd card, then it has the sd card slot, however for some strange reasons android doesnt play to well with all these different memory options, which is why samsung developed the rfs file system (which was rubbish and makes the galaxy s lag) which is also the reason why the nexus s which comes with 16gb has NO sd card slot.

    I have the htc desire and only had 140mb for apps, which was a pain as i use around 500mb, and i have over 100 apps installed (ihad to find other ways of increasing the internal storage) while 2 gigs like the desire hd and desire z would of been nice, 1gig isnt actually that bad, as they still supply an sd card (voda was saying 8gb) so really it still ships with 9 gigs of storage as also alot of apps now use the apps2sd so again i see no reason why the 1gig shouldnt be enough.

    This is annoying now, i had narrowed my upgrade to either samsung galaxy s2, or the htc desire s, Now this monster comes out, i didnt really want a 4.3inch phone, but i was going to make an exception for the galaxy because of the dual core, and the super amoled plus screen, is really top of the class sorta stuff, but now with this, to have dual core, plus htc’s amazing build quality. Makes this a really tough desicion.

      What might help you is that SUPER AMOLED Plus display is supposed to be SUPREME. Apparently it is supposed to be MUCH better. It’s also in a more common Android resolution (from what I’ve heard) so there won’t be any stretching on regular apps. ANd The ‘Plus’ of SUPER AMOLED Plus is supposed to increase the sub pixel count from 8 to 12 which BASICALLY results in a THEORETICAL Pixels Per Inch of 327 – One more than the iPhone. Of course the screen does have visible pixels or I’m sure there would have been MUCH more hype but the screen is really supposed to be a HUGE upgrade to anything in the market…including the qHD. Also on build quality – although the Galaxy S II is made from plastic, the build quality does still feel very good. (engadget has a good video review about the build quality and the external side of the phone)

    1gb internal memory is not enough, hell even 2gb in the galaxy S is not enough for me
    (Galaxy S only have 2gb for apps, rest is only for data)

      I agree. This is a really disappointing move by HTC; I was counting on at least 32GB of internal storage. That plus another 32GB SD card would have been enough to replace my current phone and iPod (yeccchhhh), but as it stands… nope, not happening.

      I’ll bet the bootloader’s not even unlockable. Ridiculous.

        32gig on a htc phone? are you mad. they only give internal storage space for apps, none of this internal sd card lark that samsung does.

        But android is all about choice – the samsung galaxy s2 is the phone for you, that comes in 16gb and 32gb flavours, has 1.2dual core and the amazingly amazing super amoled plus screens.

      am pretty sure you dont fill your 2gig of storage for apps, thats neally impossible, most apps are tiny, and you can install most of them on the sd card as well.

        I was pretty keen on a qHD screen, actually.

        What’s the point of a media superphone without decent internal storage? And since when is it a “lark” to have internal storage? Even my old Touch Pro has 8GB built-in… that’s double what the Sensation has.

          Does the media not get stored on the SD card? Are people confusing app storage space with media/MP3/video capacity here?

            Yes, you’re absolutely right. My old Touch Pro does *not* have 8GB built-in, as I had thought. Bad example. :o)

            Good example: The LG Optimus 2X does have 8GB storage built-in. Why HTC is offering 1/8th of that (as user-accessible) is completely beyond me.

            i have just purchased the lg optimus 2x.
            yes it does have 8gb built in but its partition so that you only have 1.5gb of app storage. 512mb for the operating system and cache and then the other 6gb is for music and pictures etc and acts as whats called the internal sd card.

            No android phone has more than 2gb of internal storage for apps.

    1GB not enough? There’s 512MB in the Nexus One and that’s enough. What do you need more than an extra 512MB for?

      My HTC Desire has slightly more space than the Nexus One and that has repeatedly proved too little. I’m not in the market for a new phone but I would not upgrade to a phone with only 1G.

        i think youve confused rom and ram.
        the desire has more ram than the nexus
        but they both have 512rom, however the desire needs more system space because it has sense piled ontop.
        htc desire only has 148mb of internal storage for apps. (some of which might be taken by the carrier) but the nexus has 190mb of internal storage

        both are inadequate.

    512mb sounds good but only 140mb for use for apps. Not all apps can go to sd card, like Facebook, so very easy to fill the space. One thing that catches my eye is the Gorilla glass. I have it on my one year od Milestone and not a single scratch-its still perfect. Amazing.

    The memory is an issue. What about the dimensions though? Just been oggling over an Xperia Arc and noticed the clever design which makes it narrower than a Galaxy S and only a few mm longer. Does the Sensation do a better job of containing the screen than the Desire HD (which is too damned big)?

    Might have been at the top of my list for when I get a new phone but I really wanted them to launch a 10.1″ tablet :(

    I’d really like to have a tablet and phone from the same manufactuer so at the moment its looking like Samsung Galaxy II and Galaxy Tab 10.1, just not sure about touchwiz… or an LG Optimus 2x and LG Optimus Pad (just think the 3D part is a bit gimicky…)… or do I just turn to the darkside… iWont even mention it…
