T-Mobile Branded HTC Sensation 4G In The Wild!


Since we know how much you all love in the wild shots of upcoming T-Mobile phones we thought we’d oblige with some pics of the HTC Sensation 4G. Easily one of the hottest T-Mobile phones to hit the market in recent memory the Sensation 4G brings 4.3″ Android goodness to Magenta shelves. Still scheduled for a June 8th release one of our ninjas recently got some hands on time with the device and was kind enough to send in some pics and show some TmoNews love while they were at it. The Sensation 4G arrival on T-Mobile was no mystery as it was announced right from the get go as a Magenta exclusive but this is the first time we’re seeing a T-Mobile branded edition hanging out in the wild.

As a quick refresh the Sensation 4G rocks a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 1.2GHz processor, HTC Sense 3.0, 1080p recording, 8 megapixel camera, qHD screen and of course T-Mobile 4G.

Check out the gallery!

Thanks Jonathan from Queens!

      do it and don’t worry about the merger. Enjoy the time you have left with low prices and an awesome phone. If the merger happens sell this beast to pay for your ETF. It’ll be worth it.

        if the merger happens there will be no ETF duh you just get to pocket an extra 300-400 dollars which is great in its on paying for your new phone easily

      Wait for the SGSII. It’s a better device. Better specs and more DEV support. Every single review I’ve read said it’s the best Android device ever made and the best smart phone available right now.

      • Anonymous

        Even so, They said that the SGS2 hasnt been announced for T-Mobile yet but it has with Sprint, AT&T and Verizon… In my opinion, I say get the Sensation because HTC is a reliable company over Samsung. HTC also will push updates to your phone alot faster than Sansung. also, QHD (higher res screen) beats Super AMOLED plus (colors and contrast) any day

        • Anonymous

          Might beat it one paper but in my opinion, the Super AMOLED plus looks better. There are other things that look better on paper in Samsung’s corner.

          The SGS2 hasn’t been anounced, but the Hercules rumored for T-Mobile is pretty much the same thing, just with a different flavor of dual-core processor.

  • the screen is just beautiful. Im currently using the iphone, which the screen is okay but its nothing as beautiful than amoled screen. I left t-mobile for the reason of junk phones. When the G2 was the ‘it’ phone or top phone for t-mobile, I knew there was nothing good coming. Verizon and Sprint kept getting the exclusive phones. Thats is why I left. I do hope t-mobile USA will be getting at least the HTC sensation. I would love to buy this for my girlfriend. 

    • I’m pretty sure the screen tech is SLCD.

    • Anonymous

      It’s not AMOLED. It’s Super LCD. The SGSII is Super AMOLED Plus which in my opinion is the best looking display ever made. When looking at the SGSII, the icons appear as if there just floating on top the glass. It’s a display that will mesmerize people but must be seen in person to appreciate it’s presence. 

      • DREW J

        I disagree .. i dont get why people say that.. the super amoled screens have insane colors and contrast.. resolution is still garbage and the same as every oher phone.. until the qhd ones come out..until there out the super amoled just is nice and bright and colorful..thats it..

        • Anonymous

          OK, and thats your opinion. I clearly stated that in my opinion the Super AMOLED Plus display is the nicest I have ever seen. Your eyes are your eyes and you might like something different. I am not the only one who thinks there displays are pretty. In fact, I have seen many reviews by tech bloggers who said it’s one of the nicest displays they have ever seen. When I had my Vibrant and I played Avatar for people, they were mesmerized with the way the display looked.

    What’s with all the comments about the GS2 in these HTC SENSATION articles? How much you want the GS2 to be released has nothing to do with this phone. 

    • Anonymous

      It has everything to do with this article. People will have a tough decision to make in the next couple of weeks. People who only purchase devices every 2 years are going to be spending a upgrade on one of the two devices since both of them will be in the top 3 devices on Tmobile. 

      • DREW J

        Newsflash.. people on this site or any tech blog for that matter probably arent using an upgrade on any phone.. those people dont care enough to read this stuff.. they simply walk into a store and go oh im eligible.. whats the best phone.. only tech junkies for the most part are on these blogs and if there anything like me.. dont use a new every 2 upgrade because they simply dont have one but it doesnt stop them from ebaying a phone to get the latest and greatest..

        • Anonymous

          I have seen plenty of people on here and the XDA forums stating that they just spent a upgrade on a recent device. Are you that naive to think, just because someone fallows a tech blog means their made of money and can purchase multiple unsubsidized phones a year? Pull your head out of your a$$.

        • DREW J

          ill put money on it if they did a poll over 75% of the people on this blog talking about gettin the newest phone are not the common upgrader.. second.. clearly your dumb or playing dumb.. if i start a new contract with tmobile i get a subsidized phone well say for 199.. 2 months later one comes out i like that sells outright for 499..i sell my original on ebay for 499 or something close to it as thats what it will go for give or take a few bucks.. rinse repeat.. again your either playing real dumb or you are ..if you keep changing to the newest from the newest you barley spend a dime..

          I’ve been selling my phones on Ebay for years. If you want, I can give you my S/N so you can see my history. I sold 3 devices this past year and my experience has been, a used phone, 2 months old sells for about $150 less than what you paid for it. Thats before the Ebay fees, shipping and taxes. In the end, your losing about $200. Not a lot of people are willing to drop $200 + on a new phone every couple months. Go over to the G2X XDA forum and take a look at how many people returned there G2X because because they wanted to use there upgrade on the Hercules or Sensation. Christ, there’s some guys in the XDA forum that are still using the G1 because there to cheap to buy a new phone or are afraid to waste a upgrade thinking a better device will be right around the corner. If there was a way to do a accurate poll, I would take you up on that bet. You have your opinion and I have mine. Neither one of us are right and neither one is wrong. Maybe we will get a answer one day.

        • DREW J

          Then your not selling fast enough.. i dont come close to losing 200 bucks.. i lose 50 max.. and i even made enough to swich carriers like a champ..until the 350 etf came to play..ebay johnsonroda27..

          What do you mean I’m not selling fast enough? A brand new G2X costs $500 plus tax. You can get them used on Ebay for $375 and this device just came out last month. Add in the fees and shipping. You do the math.

      Noob, just like the others who judge a phone based on its quadrant score. Gtfo, you’re just bitter because you couldn’t wait for the sensation and got the g2x instead.

        I purchased the G2X and chose not to wait for the Sensation. However, I would buy the Sensation if I wanted it. I don’t feel that it’s that much better or that much worse than the G2X. If I wanted the Sensation badly enough, I would sell my G2X on Ebay. The only device that is CLEARLY better than the G2X and the Sensation for that matter is the SGSII and I will be selling my G2X on Ebay for the Hercules. Anyone who doesn’t purchase phones off of contract is not making a smart decision by wasting a upgrade on the Sensation with the God of all phones right around the corner.

    • chris

    • Greenhornet 2010

      you’re a joke LOL  benchmark scores are over rated and almost all gingerbread roms don’t perform as well on benchmarks as froyo roms…. i currently own a g2x and i am waiting for the sensation….and as far as that other device  i hate samSUCK phones…….

      • Anonymous

        While I agree with you about benchmark scores being a joke, the Tegra II is still a more efficient processor than the Qualcomm MSM 8260 which runs off of the already outdated ARM A8. The Nvidia chipset is more powerful and requires less power. Now, if the Sensation had a ARM A9 then it would be a different story. Another thing I don’t like about the Sensation is the 1GB of dedicated application memory. There is no need for that when everyone else is giving at least 3 GBs. In my opinion, the only thing the Sensation has over the G2X is the display according to the numbers. I haven’t yet seen it in person though. Lastly, the SGSII will blow both of these devices out of the water in every category. 

        • Davidmiddljr

          if you noticed, HTC has placed 1GB in most all their phones dating back to last year. not sure why, could be due to battery life or something, dont know.
          the SGSII looks like a beast, but there is no concrete evidence it will be coming to T-Mo. Also Sammy sucks ass when it comes to hardware (not display), software (updates,buggy file system,etc), and support.
          G2X (returned, went back to MT4G) could have been a great phone, but random reboots, glitchy GPS, occasional freezes, bleeding display,etc, make it a peice of crap.maybe 2nd gen versions will be better, but other phones will be out to take its place by then.
          Ive never had those issues with HTC phones, and until Sammy and LG get the picture about not just pushing crap down our throats, im not buying.
          now if they could figure out the battery issues we’d all be golden

      • wrong its the other way around, gingerbread does better in benchmarks than froyo

    The only thing the samsung galaxy s2 that is good is samoled plus screen!

    And the locked bootloader we don’t have to worry abour it. Faith in dev-team!!!!!!

    So sensation 4g all the way!!!!!!

      Um, not quite, unfortunately.

      I am by no means a Samsung fan. I purchase at least 2 devices per year and I am always mixing up the manufacturer. I currently have a G2X and I feel that the Sensation is not a upgrade from it but I do feel that the SGSII will be. I will be holding onto the G2X untli the GSII variant comes to T-Mobile. By the way, every single reviewer who has covered the SGSII has said it’s the best Android device EVER made. The same will NOT be said about the Sensation. By the way I do love HTC products but the Sensation is nothing ground breaking. Now, my Nexus One was ground breaking.

      GSII>G2X>Sensation

        you lost me as soon as you said that the G2X is better than the Sensation.  no way, dude.

        • Anonymous

          Why not? The Sensation has a better display but the G2X has a better processor. It’s clocked .2 mhz lower and is still faster than the Sensation, plus uses less power. Not to mention, the G2X isn’t even running Gingerbread yet. It’s not that much better but in my opinion, it is a little better.

      • Tortionist

        These tech blogs seem fail to account for anything other than an AMOLED display. First problem with the Hercules is it’s made by Samsung, 2nd problem it’s not HTC, great phones, 3rd problem it’s not LG, great phones and excellent battery life, 4th problem, it’s made by Samsung, 5th and final problem, it’s made by Samsung. I rest my case. I’d take my rooted G2 running CM7 at 1.5 Ghz over the Hercules. The dual core processor doesn’t matter to me, since dual core is only really good for graphics intensive processes, like HD Games, etc. Who needs SAMOLED? I have a 40″ Google T.V. for HD recordings, etc. So, really….why should I care about the Hercules?

        • Anonymous

          You don’t have to care about it if you don’t want to. I choose to care about it and the reason I do is because it smokes everything else out there. I am not being biased. I own a G2X but Phonedog just did a dog fight between the SGSII and the G2X and the SGSII was much more snappy. 

        • Tortionist

          The problem with caring about having the best phone is that you’ll never have the best for more than a few months, if that. You’ll just end up continuously spending more money to keep getting the best. That’s called hyperconsuming and is in direct conflict with wealth creation…..in other words, a great way to stay poor, or close to it. A good idea would be to get a great solid smartphone and upgrade once a year or less. 

        • Anonymous

          I purchase at least 2 devices a year and for the most part, usually have the best device at any given period. I sell my old phones which allows me to purchase new ones for about $250. I am by no means poor or rich. I just don’t think there is anything ground breaking with the Sensation. At least not enough to sell my G2X for it.

        • Tortionist

          that makes sense(no pun intended). I’ve got it down to one phone a year. It’s not easy either. You might be right about there being nothing that’s groundbreaking. Only time will tell.

          Mike, first off the Hercules is all speculation at this point. Second, it is said to have a apq8060 while the Sensations is toting a msm8260. The apq model packs more power and was designed for multi tasking. It is the same chip found in the HP tablet.

        Yes, I have owned a Samsung device. I just got done using a Vibrant that treated me well. I purchased the Vibrant 1 month after my wife got the MyTouch Slide and guess who got the official 2.2 update first? The Vibrant. The only thing I didn’t like about the Vibrant was the fact it was so damn light it felt cheap. Everything else ran well (including my GPS). I held on to the Vibrant longer than any other phone I’ve held on to. I usually trade up for something better in a couple months but to be honest, nothing could touch the Hummingbird until the dual cores. Whether you like Samsung or not, there is no doubt, they are making the best mobile processors currently. 

    • SocalTeknique

      True after owning my Nexus S for 4months and now rooted with NSCollab rom, I just can’t believe how great the sound chip is when using the Voodoo sound control. The screens Samsung is using are unbeatable and the Hummingbird never chokes on me. If the next Nexus is not a Samsung then I’m getting the GSII/Hercules.

    • jarjon76

      And it in a few months, if that, they’ll be another “best Android phone ever made”. If you’re wanting the “biggest and the best”, you’ll be constantly chasing phone after phone. Personally, I like to stick with one phone for a long period of time.

      I’m pretty sure the last time Samsung made promises about updates, working phones, and such, they came through with only 1% of them. Since then I stop reading when I see Samsung’s name attached to it. They might have some nice hardware, but getting the OS to run on it well and being able to update it is another issue altogether.

      • Anonymous

        The MyTouch Slide came out a month before the Vibrant but the Vibrant still got it’s 2.2 update before the MyTouch Slide. Samsung left a bad taste in everyones mouth after the Behold II fiasco but I think they have been redeeming themselves. Besides, the updates are not all Samsung’s fault. The updates have no problem getting to the devices over seas fast so that tells me, our carriers are holding out on updates. After all, Samsung was the first company to start throwing out Gingerbread updates.

    Some of you people are amazing. Everytime a new phones is announced, you start to talk about what it doesn’t have or you wish it had this or that. Come on now, most of you don’t even buy the phones anyway. Or if you do, you return them like they are loaners or testers. End result, higher restocking fee for loyal people, and higher pricing on new items to come.

    Phones are so advanced compared to what they were a few years back, you need to wake up. Enjoy what you have in front of you, or go design your own phone. See how it sells.

      Some people are never satisfied. No matter the phone, some people will complain about it not having some over the top feature that you don’t really need on a phone. That’s the nature of the internet, though. 

      Personally, I’m looking forward to this phone.

      The best comment I’ve seen so far…! I’m kind of tired of hearing about the damn flaws. Let’s get some positivity going for once. Every phone does not need to be compared to the G2x or the SGS2. At least we are finally getting a phone that is equivalent to the EVO, Thunderbolt and Inspire. People are just so crazy these days!

      This phone will be a great seller for T-Mo. Everyone knows that!

  • pakraider

    Anyone else notice that it has UMTS 1900? Good news for future proofing. Just a few AT&T markets that are 850 only for 3G, but you’d think post-merger they will use T-Mo’s 1900 to boost 3G also.. let’s see

    • My sidekick 4G also lists 1900 UMTS…….. means nothing.

        True but it meant something on the vibrant..vib worked on att 3g..

    I know the majority of the people who purchase Android devices don’t bother rooting but don’t go throwing numbers around unless you have data showing it is in fact 95%. I say it’s 80%. Who’s right? Nobody will know. Lastly, how did you screw up a root? All you have to do is fallow directions. It’s not that hard. Especially when you have programs like One Click Root

    • DREW J

      Ok ill give you 80%.. thats still a ton more than 20%, i believe thats majoirty plus some.. secondly i didnt screw up a root im saying the rom didnt work right there were things that still didnt work correctly after the 5th release and 2 months later for the g2 with the desize z rom like the mms being completely downsized to a thumbnail…third there was no one click root when i did the g2 root.. thanks for being a know it all

        It takes a while to get a perfectly working ROM and some devices may never see one. I have had plenty of devices that had perfectly working ROMS that were better than the stock offering. You usually have to try multiple ROMS to find one that lives up to your standards. I know it’s only been a month but there isn’t any 100% final ROMS for the G2X yet. In fact, there is only 1 out of 5 that is even being close to done. I have tried all of them and don’t use any of them. Not until they get everything working.

    This phone is a great phone, it make calls, it will have the HTC watch, dual core processor, nice screen and alot more. The HTC phones get the updates before the Samsung Phones. Its got that hellava screen but Samsung with there updates are a little worrisome and now I don’t know what to do…..Sensation or the Hercules?

    • Itmustbejj

      I know Samsung’s rap with updates, but they seem to be on pace with HTC as far as rolling out Gingerbread.

    • Anonymous

      Samsung was the first to get Gingerbread updates out. Also, the MyTouch Slide came out 1 month before the Vibrant and the Vibrant still got it’s Froyo long before the MyTouch. I really think the updates are hindered by our carriers and varies from device to device.

    i wanna get it but its so far behind the gsII ial feel stupid as soon as i buy it.

    I will get this phone ..having said that when is the day cell manu’s start to give a crap about battery life…thats one thing everyone cares about that they overlook..the sidekick 4g battery is the first one that outlasted my iphone 4 .. this battery life i amazing and sos the keyboard..itll be a tough to let this go but im still within my 14 days and cant not get the best phone out for resale perposes..i will have a sidekick for daily driver during the work week.. you simply cant beat the keyboard and the battery..

    • Tortionist

      The LG Optimus T I had, had a 3 day battery life with moderate usage. My wife is loving that. My G2 only gets 1 1/2 days with moderate usage and that’s only because it’s rooted running CM7. I totally agree on the battery life.

      • Itmustbejj

        On my MT4G with CM7, I got 3 days and 15 hours and was at like 15% battery. That is with light to moderate usage mind you, but that was with no extreme tweaking. I always leave wifi on because I find it saves battery more than drains it as long as you are somewhere where you can connect.

        • Tortionist

          That is tight. I like the MT4G a lot. How’s the over-clocking? What speed works well for the MT4G. I might go back to it.

           “””its the same as any other android 2.2 device out there”””
          You can’t be serious…The Side Kick 4G is crippled when you compare it to the current Android offerings. Here I thought only teenie boppers were buying the Side Kick. Any self proclaimed tech geek would have never chose the Side Kick over the more powerful G2X. By the way, the HTC Touch Pro 2 has the best keyboard ever made!!

        • DREW J

          Hows it crippled??? Youve apparently never used one because its got some cool little features on it and its a nice little phone for work use im a technician and battery life and a KB are important to me..so dont tell me whats crap and whats not.. theres nothing teenie bopper about it..a slide out screen with a phenominal keyboard..not to mention i definetly wont be keeping it..your high ..and the g2x is a vanilla android.. theres nothing at all great about it minus the hardware which i think is hideous and i guarentee i know more about anything cell phone related than you think you know pal..dont question my decisions on my decive..second.. i know your a tad slow but i wanted a physical kb therfor cutting out the g2x..third.. again youve apparently never used a sidekick because there keyboard is untouchable.. i dare you to ask every single tech blog out thre theyll tell you ..or go watch technobuffalo,slashgear and all the other sidekick reviews and they say “the best keyboard ive ever used” ..you putting the touch pros keyboard in the same conversation is a joke to anyone who has used both and knows..that im not going to throw a number at you ill put anything you want on that.. tp2 keyboard..lol that doesnt even belong in the same sentence as the sk keyboards..lol

        • Anonymous

          I have used the Side Kick 4G keyboard. I just never bought it. Why do I have to like the same things as you or anyone else. I think the TP2 keyboard is better and my opinion will not be changed. You don’t have to try and justify it. You act as if Vanilla Android is a bad thing. I prefer Vanilla Android over any skin out there and so do a lot of other people. In my opinion the Side Kick 4G is crippled since it’s hardware does not live up to the high end Android offerings of it’s time. Lastly, is this some type of contest? Who the hell cares who knows more about cell phones. That comment right there just shows your level of maturity. No wonder you bought the Side Kick 4G.

        • DREW J

          you dont have to.. but overall your wrong..as previously stated the tp2 keyboard isnt even in the same class..and let me tell you a little secret about vanillia android buddy.. its got NO show.. nothing to it, boring, no sex appeal, which is why rooters and modders love it,  general public dont, which is why everyone and there mom wants the sensation over the plain g2x, which is why people want the evo(and evo 3d) sense ui is sexy as hell and honestly i prefer it.. it has little things like typing in the persons name on the dialer screen to bring them up, just neat little things… and hows the hardware crippled ? is .2 inches smaller then the majority of the 3.7 screenies out there .. its got a 1gz processor, 512 ram.. im sorry i dont see the crippled . i might see the its a little late on them specs but its also not a high end device, with a little updating ( and by a little i mean maybe a .2 screen size bump and a dual core processor and its high end all the sudden.. and no this isnt a contest but when you insult my status as a techy guy im going to tell you that i know more than you do about anything in the telecommunications world considering i work for one pretty huge company..but yea id be jealous too if i could have my phone last all day and bang out messages way faster then you too..have fun with your class leading nvidia dual core and your awsome gaming for a whole 20 minutes before your recharging your boring g2x

          You obviously never used the G2X since you think it’s battery doesn’t last long. I get about 12-15 hours out of it with moderate to heavy use. I don’t like UI Skins because they use up system resources. Sorry but I would rather have extra RAM than my UI to look pretty. Again your making speculations that the general public doesn’t like Vanilla Android. Show me the findings please. Why do you think everything you say is fact? I’m not jealous that you can bang out text messages fast (LOL) considering I don’t text much. Besides, how do you know I’m not super fast with Swype or something? Lastly, since when does working for a big company make you know more about something than someone else? Thats a moronic statement. Quite frankly, I don’t understand how you even got a job after looking through your comments. English 101 anyone?

          12-15 hours on heavy usage..hahahahahahahahaah 12-15 hours of heavy usage on any android phone..hahahahahahahahahahah.. now i know your full of absolute cow poop..and your comment about the ui skin and ram.. point proven turd..no person in general public even knows what that is let alone going to be a deciding factor..if you dont see that your not bright whatsoever..if you want some findings look at a non sese phone vs the sales of a sense phone and theres your stats you asked for..and i said i can text an email faster than you.. are you one of those dudes who just read what you want to ? I work for a telecommunications company, and i grew up working for tmobile and nextel corporate.

          I could give two $hits what the general public likes. The general public is full of a bunch of people who just want to buy whats cool. The general public doesn’t take the time to actually know why there buying something. They just buy it because it looks better. Sorry but I’ll take function over feature any day of the week. Lastly, no I don’t just read what I want. In your original post you said you can type “messages” faster. Well first off since when do people refer to sending email’s as sending messages? They don’t but messaging does refer to sending texts. Secondly, you act is if everyone with a hard keyboard can type faster than someone using a on screen keyboard. You don’t know that you can type faster than me, you just assume you can. By the way, usually when someone resorts to calling names, they know there losing the argument. I’m done. You don’t know jacks $hit when it comes to cell phones. You just base all of your comments off of findings from the interwebs and other peoples comments. I haven’t heard you bring anything fresh to the table and quite frankly, your wasting my precious time.

          Do you have some sort of learning disorder or something? Someone disagrees with you and you resort to name calling because you can’t prove your point? Maybe you care about what the general public likes but I don’t. I care about what I like. I don’t like things just because everyone likes them. When it comes to “messages”, I think of SMS, not emails. I wouldn’t exactly call a email a message and there you go again, talking about what other people would think. How do you know the majority of people would assume emails and SMS when you say messages. You must be  the next Nostradamus or something because you have said almost 5 times that other people would agree with you if we had a poll. Do you really care that much what other people think of you? Lastly, I don’t know who your trying to fool but I highly doubt you are in the telecommunication business at the corporate level. If anything, I think your just a T-Mobile sales boy. PS..It’s not a hat on my wifes dog. It’s a shirt with a hood on it.

          Yea, I’ve heard of Comcast. I was a Line Tech for them at the North East office in Towson, MD. Worked for them from 1995-2003. About the whole RAM issue. I know it has more RAM than the G2X but if it didn’t have Sense on it then it would have even more. This is why I prefer Vanilla Android, it sucks up less resources and looks cleaner to me. Not to mention, custom UI’s always seem to lag a little bit. I haven’t used the new version of Sense so I can’t say it does but the past has told me that Vanilla Android always runs smoother than custom UI’s. The Sensation may have more RAM but the G2X has a more powerful processor even though it’s clocked .2mhz slower. The Tegra also uses less power than the ARM A8. Both devices have are better in some areas than the other. Both have there pro’s and cons. Quite frankly, the G2X has a lot of cons. Just take a look at all the problems people are having with it. I was one of the lucky ones however and did not encounter the major problems. If you like the Sensation then buy it. I like the SGSII and the G2X was only a toy to hold me over until then. I was getting bored with my Nexus S and really wanted a dual core device. This isn’t about winning and losing to me, it’s about two different people with different opinions. I never realized it was about winning and losing to you. That just seems a bit childish.

        • DREW J

          Oh guess what.. the sensation has 256 more megs of raM then ur stupid g2x.. so member when you said youll take the extra ram over a skin? Well ill take the skin and the extra ram bcause sense definetly doesnt use a full 256 of ram..hahah you lose again !!!

  • 95 comments and only one talks about battery life
    That one post stated that they hope this phone has battery life on par with a myTouch 4G

    This thing better last as long as, at least, my orignal Galaxy S (Vibrant). I’m not even hoping for iPhone like battery life, that’s just too much to ask for. Just at least 7-8 like my Vibrant. If I have to plug this thing in as often as my buddy does with his Evo 4G I’m not buying or selling this thing.

    • DREW J

  • SocalTeknique

    Why do carriers stamp their ugly logos on the beautiful fronts of their phones? Look at the iPhone and Nexus 1/S, beautiful untarnished screens. The MyTouch 4G and SideKick 4G are good examples since its their own iconic logo brand but the Sensation and G2X look ugly. Also look at the X10, HTC Inspire, and Atrix 4G on AT&T all have that ugly ATT logo on the back instead of the front.

  • Bxcutie4life2001

    I’m kinda disappointed that it doesn’t include a sdcard with the small amount of memory the phone comes with to begin with, i think i’m gonna wait till the phone comes out in the store to play with it b4 making a decision btwn this and g2x

    • I returned my G2X, just to see this phone out in the market. Honestly I was more than happy with the G2X. The only reason I might end up going with this phone would be because of the 4.3 inch display. Other then that, the G2X is far better phone. I can tell this thing will be over flooded with bloatware. And who knows how long it’ll take for it to get rooted.

        wait for gsII the benchmarks on this phone are similar to the g2x the gs2 is far far faster 

      • Anonymous

        I returned the G2X because of screen leakage, and also because everyone getting replacements found they had screen leakage and other issues. I loved the G2X and if they rolled out units with new displays and bug fixes I’d be all over it.  I’ll give the Sensation a try and see if it lives up to its name. I’m interested in seeing how the battery fares. My Nexus One with Android 2.3.4 has incredible battery life now without my taking any steps to conserve. I go nearly two full days with web browsing, bt, wifi, calls. It’s unbelievable now. I don’t think anything can match it without jumping through many conservation hoops. Well done Google. Give us the same magic with the Sensation.

        • Itmustbejj

          You won’t get the same battery life because of the 4.3 inch screen. The nexus one and my MT4G get such awesome battery life (esp with CM) because of the smaller screen size. The # 1 user of battery on a lot of these new phones is the display (unless you have crappy signal then it will be your radio scanning for a signal).

      • TypicalWhitePerson

        G2X is T-Mobile’s biggest FLOP of the year besides Carly. Sensation OWNS that device in every way possible!!

        • Anonymous

          The Sensation does not own it in every way possible. The only way it owns it is in the display. Other than that the G2X has the better processor and isn’t running NON-Sense.

        • Ballin Indian

          Yea, the Sensation does pretty much own the G2X. Let’s see: better screen (larger and with better resolution), better design, better ui, better version of Android, more RAM, better battery, and more. Essentially a tie with the processor, cameras, and size. The 1 thing the G2X has over the Sensation is internal memory, but the Sensation’s build quality will balance that out vs. the LG’s horrible quality control. I don’t see how a phone that has horrible build quality (I’m not just speaking of having problems, I’m also speaking about the build itself as to me the G2X feels very cheap in hand) can even compete with a brand new top of the line phone.

      LOL… I sold my HD2 (running FroYo) and my Vibrant, both so to free up the wallet for a Sensation and/or the SGS2.  I got an LG Optimus T to tide me over. 

      The Optimus T is a great phone, but it’s no Vibrant.

      Two weeks ago I couldn’t take it any longer and bought a used Vibrant on eBay.  Got it for $200, which is a great price for a Vibrant (also intended to possibly give it to my sister who needs voice dialing, etc.)

      When I booted up the phone I really pleased to find out the seller had sold me an SGS 4G not a Vibrant.  When I popped in my SIM I was again pleased to see “4G” my taskbar.

      • Tortionist

        you’re right, the Optimus T is not a Vibrant, but for over 90% of the people out there, my wife included, an Optimus T is more than enough. Me….i’m enjoying my rooted G2, for now, with CM7 flashed..extremely fast. 

        • TypicalWhitePerson

          The Optimus T is actually a good phone. You can still tether and use the device as a hotspot. On top of that, its solid and looks and feels like the same size as my Nexus One in my hand. I plan on gettin me one just for back-up purposes.

        • Tortionist

          You won’t regret it. It’s a great phone, minus the non-existent trackpad. I may get another one for me if the Defy doesn’t work out.

  • Tortionist

    I think i’ll pass on this one and check out the Motorola Defy. I’ll root it and run CM7, while erasing motoblur if that’s possible as well as overclock it. I think it’ll be cool having a waterproof, dustproof, and scratch resistant screen on a phone.

    • Ron Dickerson

      it’s not water-proof.

      • Tortionist

        water resistant…whatever. I understand the difference and what it means.

        • Aerofanbig

          I am really enjoying the DEFY. Its nice to have a smaller package with a fairly powerful phone. Not everyone needs a damn near mini-tablet for a phone. I don’t watch videos or surf way too much on my phone, so having a 4.3 or 4.5″ phone is just a burden. Wish some more companies would offer some full screen/small bezel phones like this. And yes, there are ROM’s you can flash that are de-blurred! Some Euro versions don’t come with BLUR, it was pretty easy to create the roms. Overclocked to just 1ghz with no BLUR seems to REALLY make the phone rock. Enjoy

    The only company in the world to call this phone 4G. I feel is if they are making fun of Americans, as having such a low IQ as not being able to deal with terms such as HSDPA+ or UMTS.

    3.5G ad 3.75G is still 3G. Apples and Oranges.

    • Ron Dickerson

      Most people aren’t smart enough to understand the difference.  I’ve seen people who’ve had android phones for 6 months and the only “smart” functions they know about on their phones is that it has flash support and they can download ringtone apps.  Sometimes they don’t even know they can get apps on them, or they don’t know what a Gmail account is… after owning it for 6+ months.

      so, no… most people aren’t smart enough to understand the difference.

    • garet

      most of dont care if its 3.75 or 4 as long as the download speeds are fast enough and with the mytouch4g I consistently get better speeds then any Evo 4g owner I know in my area Chicago area for that matter so I dont mind them calling it 4g…..

    Too bad this phone only has 1GB of internal memory, that just ruins things for me.  I’d rather wait for the SGS2

    • Zifnab2k

      1gb is a bummer, but looks like SGS2 probably won’t be coming to T-Mobile, and the wait will likely be until September for an equivalent (That’s if leaked roadmaps are to be believed).

      Really don’t understand why HTC keeps clinging on to using 1gb or less internal storage… I would rather get no sd-card and 9gb on board than 1gb on board and 8 gb sd, SD just doesn’t run as fast as the onboard storage. With that said, I’ve managed not to max out the tiny amount of storage on my Nexus One (though I do have to restrain myself and clear programs out that I don’t use), but I would love to have nearly endless storage for my apps.

        Nope. I definitely prefer the storage card. Most of the people who read this sure regularly switch phones regularly as well. The same 16gig card has come with me from the Bold, Nexus One, HD2, Nexus One (again), Vibrant, MyTouch 4g, Galaxy S 4g, G2, and now the G2x.

For now I-phone owns all other smartphones, due to a brilliant marketer and businessman that likes to nickel and dime you to death.

        Yes, because Apple offers the best apps. Oh wait…

        Yes, because Apple lets you play Flash content. Oh wait…

        Yes, because Apple lets you be free from constantly having to connect to your computer. Oh wait…

        Yes, because Apple will let you multitask. Oh wait…

        Yes, because Apple lets you choose the device that best fits you (ie, keyboard, big screen, budget, etc.) Oh wait…

        Apple can’t possibly compete, most people only buy iPhones because it gives them a boost in self confidence and because people will think they’re cool. Android on the other hand… Functionality, anyone?

        • TypicalWhitePerson

          Same reason why every other top tier Android device from each carrier has marketed against the iPhone… but FAILED!! Motorola DROID (Verizon) vs. iPhone, MyTouch 4G (T-Mobile) vs. iPhone, EVO 4G (Sprint) vs. iPhone, HTC Thunderbolt (Verizon) vs. iPhone, and now the FAILED G2X (T-Mobile) vs. iPhone!! The Sensation is T-Mobile’s last working oxygen tank to compete with the mothership of Apple.

          All have tried but FAILED to convince Americans that Android is better… in which it isn’t anyway. Verizon have came close, but T-Mobile failed and left their flagship device’s to get swept like the Lakers. At least VZW got SMART and joined forces with Apple to bring that beautiful “typical white iPhone 4”. You go to their website, and thats the first device you see, NOT Android… same with AT&T. When Sprint get the iPhone, they will do the same. And if you don’t think T-Mobile was to get the iPhone and not promote the device ahead of silly dumb phones such as the Sidekick 4G or that horrible G2X… then I’m the guy who hacked the PlayStation Network.

          Remember geeks, Apple iOS = WINNING!!

          A sing Android device cannot compete with the iPhone. Any idiot can comprehend why. It’s because if you want to use iOS, you only have one device to buy. If you choose to use Android, you have multiple devices to choose from. Not only are company’s like Motorola, LG, Samsung and HTC competing with Apple, there also competing with each other. If there were only one low end Android device, one mid range and one high end to choose from then each of those devices would outsell the iPhone. When a OS is available on 50 different phones, each one of them obviously isn’t going to sell more.

        • Tortionist

          OJ.. I agree with that, but also Economics says that any device/technology that is the first out there, has the advantage, but will eventually over time fall to competitors. I-phone was the first touchscreen smartphone in the U.S. so everyone else is playing catch up. Android is already the number one smartphone OS.

          Oh really? Please explain how Android has failed to prove its better than the iPhone. The only reason companies advertise against the iPhone is because its the most bought phone (because there’s only 4 models, not because its amazing).

          “Android now has a third of the US market (33%). RIM’s share has plummeted to 29%. Apple is holding at 25%.”

          This is on Business Insider. Other sites have this info as well. 

          In March 2008, Android held 8% of the market share. Fast forward 3 years, its owns it. I think Americans know Android is superior…

          What I think you mean is “No wireless company has proved to have the best Android phone”. 100+ Android phones, and 4 iOS phones, I think you see how more likely it is for ONE iOS device to outsell ONE Android device. Overall, Android wins, which is what matters. 

          Also, I’m sure geeks know the benefits of Linux over iOS, true ones anyway.

        • TypicalWhitePerson

          If Android wins, then T-Mobile would be winning, in which its not, sadly! T-Mobile was the first to introduce an Android phone (G1), which was a total disaster and FAIL!! Remember, first impression is everything. T-Mobile have no choice but to rely heavily on Android and its sucky reputation. There are far more reports of Android devices malfunctioning than the iPhone. Face it dude, everybody wants an iPhone. Why? Because its smoother, less-complicated to operate, eye-catching, compact, and just have that iconic signature to it. Half the Androids thats out people have no idea about them except the nerds. For there to be a million Androids marketed against one Apple iPhone in the last of it’s 3 generations is just SAD!! 

          Even the iPod Touch is #winning and OWNS Android… 

        • Anonymous

          T-Mobile has the WORST advertising campaign. Verizon has the best, hence why its most successful. Because different manufacturers have different quality control. Huawai or whatever it is, makes horrible Android phones. Not everyone wants to have an iPhone, while I do admit its a nice piece of technology. 

          Smoother? In some cases. 

          Less complicated? No, just simple, not customizable, not much to with it.

          Eye-catching? My Samsung Vibrant looks better than any iPhone.

          Compact? Again, my Samsung Vibrant is lighter and thinner. That’s just one of MANY examples. 

          Iconic? I must admit, smartphones wouldn’t be what they are today without the original, but people need to realize the game is changing and Apple can’t keep up.

          iPod Touch is basically an iPhone 4 without a radio and a decent camera.

        • TypicalWhitePerson

          Apple iPhone is the foundation of what has become with premium touchscreen smartphones. Look at your AMOLED display and the way the apps are displayed and lined up. Yeah!!

          When was the last time you seen or heard about people camping outside T-Mobile stores overnight, lining up around the block and then some for the Vibrant, Galaxy S 4G, MyTouch, G2X, Nexus S, and so forth… selling out in a day and causing online orders to shutdown… racking up massive amounts of back-orders… just like what the iPhone do at launch on release day?? Yeah, exactly!

          IMO the Vibrant is very flimsy. If I had too, I would pick the MyTouch 4G over that phone in a heart beat for its sturdiness and solid build. 
          LOL at you saying the Vibrant looks better than the iPhone 4… can I have what you’re smoking? You was better off saying the Galaxy S 4G or something else besides the Vibrant. That’s definitely a personal opinion right there. 

          If Apple can’t keep up, then why companies waste their time trying to market against it? Americans aren’t stupid! When there’s several ads from multiple carriers rivaling against the same device, all that does is just make the iPhone seem even more inferior and appealing. Android has a hefty share in the market place. Well yeah, DUHHHH, I never heard of iPhones being offered for free with a contract, unlike Android phones.

        • Anonymous

          I’m sure another phone would’ve revolutionized the phone industry, just later in time if the iPhone didn’t happen. 

          I hate the way Samsung made the home app UI, so I installed LauncherPro. As I’m sure most people do.

          Again, ONE iPhone, MANY Android phones. Google “Logic Fallacy”.

          Flimsy because its made of mainly plastic? Or because its so light? Or because its so thin? Just the screens looks amazing, even though it pushes less pixels. The Galaxy 4G IS a Vibrant, with a FFC, less internal memory, and a 4G radio. Again, personal preference, so not going to dive too much.

          Because companies want to win over WHATEVER IS ON TOP. If poop in a can is the latest fashion, that’s what companies will advertise against. Simple logic. The iPhone is inferior, except for the great resolution. Never had signal loss due to holding my phone in a way Samsung didn’t intend me to (Apple has a specific way, they mentioned it). 

          I’ve never once heard my friends that I’ve convinced to Android say “Goddamn Android, iOS is where its at”. At the most, they say “I miss iTunes”. To which I send them a link to iTunes Agent, and they are happy once more. Oh, the big thing they love, is being able to replace the battery. Kinda sad that they’re favorite feature is such a simple one, not like “We can play Flash content!” or “Yay! No more boring homescreens with endless scrolling!”.

          TWP, you are a complete douche bag. You obviously have no grasp of business. Just because Android is winning, doesn’t mean T-mobile will. Android is only a portion of T-mobile, not vice versa. Learn a few things then you might have some validity.

          As a phone, yes, but IOS is losing to Android, why? because it’s so damned locked down. Steve jobs is a brilliant marketer and businessman, but that’s it. he could sell freezers to Eskimos. The I-phone is a mid-level smartphone at best. Most Android phones can do a lot more than the I-phone with its locked down system, antennae issue( I still love that press conference), no external memory card, I-tunes( worst software in the world). I could go on for a while, but it’d be pointless since I need some sleep. The I-phone is a fad sold to an unsuspecting public that bought it all hook, line, and sinker.

        Vibrant uses Super Amoled Screen not Super Amoled plus, which is even better than the display you currently have, the problem i see with the SGS2 is the cheap built it has since is all plastic.

      SamSUCK just needs to stay away from the wireless business. There phones sucks and so does anyone who owns one!! Leave the manufacturing to Apple, HTC, LG, Motorola, and hell I even say SonyEricson and Sharp. The LX 2009 was very solid. SamSUCK is the reason why the Sidekick 4G FLOPPED!! 

      Then y’all wonder why Verizon is #WINNING… because they don’t invest to much stock into bringing Samsung smartphones to their line up. #Geniuses

      • I’ve never liked Samsung dating back to feature phones. Now when it comes to TV’s, they have my business but not phones. As I think about it, you are absolutely right about Verizon. Do they even have any Samsung devices? I think they have a Galaxy S but I wouldn’t know because I don’t pay either any attention.

        TouchWiz is horribly ugly and IMHO too much like an iPhone which I don’t really like. They’re dedicated  home key, menu, etc. setup is not what’s up either.

  • If the boot-loader isn’t unlocked than I don’t want it.

    • Wow.  It is THE best phone for T-Mobile from HTC.  Saying that is like saying If I buy a MB 500S (being able to afford it mind you), and can’t change the engine I won’t buy it.  Really?  You can’t be happy with just being able to buy and use the best?  OK.  I think that is crazy.  All these people complaining about this is locked, and that is locked.  Move on people, and use the phone the way it comes to market.  If you want to root, and change things, then get a phone that is easy to do that to, don’t knock an awesome phone because it’s locked down.  Most people don’t even care about that.  5 billion users, and 100K devs.  Manufactures don’t really care.  They get their money.  Just sayin’ my opinion.

    • Jon

      Hold your horses Michael! That boot loader isn’t something that the folks at XDA can’t get past. Give them a few days with the device and they will unlock it and so much more. I don’t see why people complain about locked boot loaders when the hacking community will get past it. That is a silly reason for no wanting to buy an awesome phone like this.

    Looks like T-Mo is going out with a bang with both high end Android phones and the BlackBerry lineup. If the Merger fails though, I feel T-Mo still has the products that people are looking for (other than the iPhone in the USA of course)

    It’s a tough decision between this or the Bold 9900 series for me. Either way, I’m paying cash for the phone as I don’t want to be locked into contract for another few years and ETF if the ^(%@ hits the fan with this possible merger.
