HTC Sensation: What's in the box?
The HTC Sensation has arrived- and it’s packing a huge 4.3-inch display, with a quarter high-definition (qHD) display, perfect for video and pictures.
It’s also coated in Gorilla Glass, to protect that curved screen from anything else in your pocket or bag. The Sensation follows the styling of the reinvted Desire, Incredible and Wildfire, though the bigger screen does single the Sensation out.
Alongside HTC’s tablet, the Flyer, the Sensation has Android Gingerbread (2.3.3) that’s the bleeding edge of Android- and arrives with the new version of HTC Sense, their own extra Android seasonings.
This time HTC has added a zippy new lock-screen, where you can jump straight to four special shortcut apps.
There’s also a new on-demand video service; HTC Watch, where you can both buy and rent films and TV show episodes.
The microUSB port has MHL, meaning it will connect to any HDTVs with a HDMI connection- as long as you have the right cable.
Inside the curved unibody casing is a dual-core processor, the Sensation is packing a dual-core 1.2Ghz processor, putting it up there with Samsung’s Galaxy S2 on the superphone power benchmarks.
