Android Phone Tips

Android Phone Tips
The HTC Sensation is currently the newest smartphone available on T-Mobile’s network. When compared to recent Android phones across all carriers, the HTC Sensation 4G has a superior screen resolution and a dual-core system of a chip (SoC) that provides enough muscles to power a smooth user experience, entertainment and video games. I browse the web several times a day to check on news sites, but I rarely watch movies or play music. 

On the “apps” side, I have a couple of social networks, but I rarely play games – even Angry Birds. The HTC Sensation 4G design is a more modern version of what I call the “classic” HTC look. By the way, the HTC and T-Mobile logos are relatively discreet. Overall, It looks better than the HTC EVO Shift 4G and the HTC Thunderbolt in my opinion, but maybe it would have been nice if it were all black. On the functional side, the HTC Sensation 4G works well. Unlike many other phones, the Power button is very easy to find and to push.

I also appreciate that the four Android buttons down there are visible at all times (even when the phone display is off). On some handsets they become invisible, to make the phone “look better” and to save on backlight power consumption, but this is very annoying because not every Android phone have the same button layout. It’s great when holding the phone in the hand, but when I put the phone on a table, a tap on either side of the screen would tilt the phone. 

Out of the box, the display is simply beautiful. It didn’t hurt that HTC has preloaded the Sensation 4G with cool wallpapers and all. Indoors, the image quality is great. The display used by HTC tends to reflect a lot of light. 

One of the thing that keeps HTC users coming to this brand is HTC Sense. Sense is a collection of software improvements that HTC has done on top of Android. Not every single thing in HTC Sense is super-useful, but overall it adds enough value to give the company a significant edge in terms of user interface and user experience.

If I was to compare it to the Nexus S, which has theoverall best sound quality of all, I would say that the Sensation 4G sound is a bit muffled, but the sound quality and volume has always been consistent during calls. HTML pages display just fine. It works perfectly, and most of the plain-vanilla Flash sites (small business, restaurants…) should work just fine.

If you had to remember only one thing about the photo capabilities of this phone, it is this: as you tap on the screen to take a photo, it will capture it way faster than most Android phones. The HTC Sensation 4G has very good photo and video capture abilities, especially outdoors. Many smartphone can capture good images of a bright outdoor scene. The video capture is pretty good too. It replays best on the Sensation 4G display, and it is light enough to copy/upload. 

While the HTC Sensation 4G is the current new smartphone release on T-Mobile, spies have taken photos of the QWERTY T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide that gives keyboard-needers an alternative. The myTouch 4G Slide features include a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, front-facing 6MP or more camera, 800 x 480 resolution touchscreen, Android 2.3, and HTC Sense 3.0 with some myTouch.specialization.
