It’s one of the sexiest smart phones around. Huge touch screen Gorilla glass display giving you crisp and vivid images. Impressive 8MP HD camera with dual-LED flash. Equally impressive HTC Sense UI layered on top of the Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS.

Some negative points would be the battery life which easily drains in a day of regular usage. That huge display is a smudge magnet. It’s size would make you think twice before mindlessly putting it in your pocket or if you have a small hand-span and short fingers, you would have to hold it with both hands almost every time.

Going online while on the go with the HTC Sensation is wonderful experience, the review unit I have came with a Smart Pre-paid account but thanks to their improved 3G/HSDPA coverage in Cavite and their new volume-based data plans, updating Facebook, Google+, checking Gmail and the occasional Google search is such a cool treat.

Watch out for the full review soon!
