Dual-core HTC Sensation Review: Advantages and Disadvantages

On the eve of Dual-core mobile phones in 2011, HTC Sensation was one of the first to born and rule the market. HTC tried to make the droid with complete perfection - from screen, through camera to the powerful chipset. No cutting corners, no compromise on features. Front of the HTC Sensation fitted with a monster 4.3" S-LCD screen with qHD resolution of 540 x 960 pixels. And more importantly this 4.3-inch screen has the same pixel density as a much smaller 3.7" screen with regular WVGA resolution.

The 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon chipset with the new Adreno 220 graphics are good for everything. In this HTC Sensation review as always I will take a look at its specifications, advantages and disadvantages. I hope it will help you to decide buying Sensation or not.
