HTC Sensation Unboxing Video

htc sensation_left_2

HTC’s new flagship device is here at last. Announced in April the HTC Sensation takes over the top spot from the Desire HD which similarly had a 4.3 inch screen. The Sensation is running Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread with the popular HTC Sense sitting on top. The specs on the phone are pretty impressive. Powered by a 1.2 GHz processor the HTC Sensation really is a powerhouse of a Smartphone. The SLCD screen is made of Gorilla glass for extra protection, we have 1080p HD video recording and also an 8 megapixel camera which if anything like the HTC Incredible S’s will perform beautifully.

Enough of my waffling. You can see the unboxing video below as well as the full specs and we of course will have a full review in the coming weeks.
