Walmart Selling HTC Sensation 4G For $148.88

While Walmart has already been selling the HTC Sensation 4G for a few days now, their most recent Sunday circular shows the official pricing  as $148.88. Of course they are also claiming the Sensation 4G has a 4.5″ screen so someone at Walmart didn’t do their homework. That’s still not as bad as T-Mobile’s website claiming the phone is capable of 42Mbps HSPA+ 4G speeds though so we’ll give Walmart a pass on this one. T-Mobile has since updated the page by the way to reflect the actual speeds.

Walmart’s price is a full $100 less than T-Mobile’s pre-rebate pricing so definitely look up your local Walmart and give the Sensation 4G a spin!

Thanks everyone who sent this to me!

    It also doesn’t have an amoled screen, right?

    Just called my two local Wally Worlds and they ain’t got no Sensations. Heading to El Paso right now for a concert so we’ll see if I can snag one at a store there. Called and they have some but they said the girl’s about to leave and nobody else will be in to sell phones. I guess we’ll see if I leave with a Sensation tonight!

    My local Walmart is already out.  I was able to play with the demo for a short period of time.  I confirmed that the $148 price is not only for new customers, but also people that are eligible for a full upgrade!

    Hell, it’s Wal-Mart, we should be giving them kudos for spelling the name right!

    good luck finding a store with it still in stock. I’m in southern ca and i found one but they have a ridiculous policy where you have to have a utility bill with your current address that also matches your driver’s license. So if you use 2 different addresses or have moved and didn’t get a change of address your SOL

      I got mine last Wednesday and you wouldn’t go thru that “utility bill” problem if you paid full price like I did. :)

      Yes, this is what I thought too. I went and looked at the previously listed specs and it DOES have a 4.3 qHD screen. WTH?? Is there no such thing as proof-reading or fact checking anymore?

    What would be cool is if this phone really had a 4.5″ screen and was able to do 42 Mbps like all the misprints are showing.  Now they just need to have another store misprint that the price is free with 2 yr contract :)

    On an unrelated note but I hope blogs will start covering FRIGGIN PUSH NOTIFICATION SPAM! 
    I had both a Slayer app and a Rascal Flatts app. They are by 2 different developers as best I could tell. 
    Today the RF app began to send push notifications to my NB. 3 of them all wiithin a few minutes. I started my phone and got another couple of them. The Slayer app than out of the blue did the same. 
    REALLY REALLY OBNOXIOUS. 
    Anyhoo i dumped both apps and if this is a sign of things to come than that sucks ass!

    Worth noting that you can ONLY get this price at Walmart if you are 22 months into the contract and NOT A DAY SOONER.

    Because it’s only available in certain stores.

      I upgraded at my local Walmart in Springfield, TN on 6/9 and the price for the upgrade was only $148.88.  Zero changes to contract other than extension of contract date and $18 upgrade fee.

    I re-upped my contract less than 6 months ago while in a T-Mobile store.  Had two MT3G Slides off of craiglist that we were using so we still had our 2 full upgrades.

    Walked into Walmart on Sunday and, other than finding the store that had some (Avondale, AZ) had no problems buying (2) Sensations for $148 each – with my two full upgrade allowances. Zero changes to my plan other than resetting the clock on the 2 years.  My plan on mytmo hasn’t changed other than “your line … has a new contract end date of 06/12/2013.”

  • Doublesman20

    got mine today in douglasville, GA, initially had some screen weirdness going on, quickly did a master reset, and now everything’s cool.  the sensation is nice, but boy does it have some lag…they put way too much into sense 3.0, it bogs the phone down a decent bit. At the moment my mom’s inspire 4g is faster than my brand new sensation :(  however my 32gb micro sd works perfectly with it!!.  There was really a lot of unnecessary hype put into this phone, but its a good phone regardless.  I’ll roll with it till HTC comes with something faster and less buggy :)

      Just wait for a decent fixed Sense ROM from XDA. The one called Iced Glacier for the Mytouch 4G was my favorite and it was the same as the stock phone came but was build to run faster and smoother. Trust me, the devs do some awesome work over there.

  • Doublesman20

    but then again…it is the first batch, and software updates will probably be on the way, so i’ll reserve my judgement :)

      Keeping tabs on xda.  looks like they have a rom for the uk version and are just waiting for news/ota on the unlocked bootloader.  looks promising. 
      I switched back to ADW a day after trying Sense UI.  It is a bit laggy, I agree.

      • Garet

        I switched back to sense the adw seems laggy to me and sense for me has no lag go figure.
