To be fair, most folks will only use this device for social networking, web browsing and casual photos. You will find some hiccups & occasional bugs. For those of you power users who actually make videos, download movies, run lots of apps at once and use the power that it has to multi-task, you will see Sensation shine. It's almost better at high speeds.
DUAL-CORE MULTI-TASKING: Impressive. You can leave the browser open in the midst of playing a video, open Angry Birds, open music player, video player, Google Earth & pan about - all at once, then hop between these power-hungry apps with barely a hiccup. Hardcore multi-tasking will neither tax nor crash this device. Very impressive. The dual core doesn't make the unit faster than a 1.2ghz single core. It simply allows it to maintain 1.2 ghz speeds on more than one task. Impressive, but don't expect magic.
As for speed, HTC's heavy Sense 3.0 user interface makes the phone less snappy than other dual core units. Not so much of a lag, just less snappy. Sense takes up 3 of the 4gbs of onboard memory. I run into more hiccups during everyday use, than when I'm doing heavy multi-tasking. However, Sense 3.0 is so glam, it makes *every* other phone look dated.
For the record, you can't close an app w/in the app. You must open up still another app (task manager) to close them. A bit of an annoyance, but seeing as Sensation can handle quite a few, it's no big deal... unless you're shooting in 1080p. More on that below.
CAMERA: Mixed bag. Camera is good. Video recording is quite good & realistic in 720p.Read more ›
Battery life is pretty solid, depending on what you're doing. For some reason, taking pictures and filming video really drains the battery, but for stuff like just browsing the web, battery life is great.
The screen is really great, qHD resolution. Like I mentioned earlier, great for watching video. The 16:9 display ratio means you can watch widescreen movies without pesky black bars taking up space. The screen is bright enough that you can use it in direct sunlight. The viewing angles on it are kind of so-so, but that only really matters if you are trying to share your phone with someone (and why would you want to share this beauty.)
Call quality is nice and crisp, very loud and clear. Definitely easier to hear calls on than my cousin's iPhone.
The 4G speeds are blazing fast. Web pages definitely load faster than on my previous iPhone 3G and downloading apps is a snap.
The 8 megapixel camera takes great pictures, although a little blurrier than a dedicated camera. One big difference between this phone's camera and my old iPhone's camera is that this phone actually takes a picture when you want it to and not five seconds later! On some pictures that I took I had to adjust the color balance, but I imagine that you'll need to do that on any camera that's in a phone. The flash is pretty good, too, and not too bright where it looks harsh.Read more ›

HTC Sense 3.0 is pretty good (but resource heavy)
Fit and finish isn't as good as I thought it was gonna be
Speaker is on the softer side
Sense lauch bar has aliasing (booo!)
I am coming from a T-Mobile G2 at 1.9ghz and I thought that phone was amazing and couldn't be topped in speed. I am running Cyanogen Mod nightlies and that G2 FLYS. I got the Sensation simply because I can and the first thing that I noticed was how completely smooth and fast EVERYTHING is. It is definitely a benchmark beast in it's stock form, as it gets 130's in linpack. Quadrant isn't set up for multithread so the sensation only scores 2300s. That is still pretty good for benchmarking one cpu core in perhaps the most hostile environment for android: HTC Sense.
The phone takes amazing videos however, the sound recording capability is subpar. I still give this phone 5 stars as NO PHONE is good for that. NONE. (WHY???) Unlike the G2, the external hardware is not amazing but average with the exception of the beveled gorilla glassed screen. It is fantastic and LARGE. The beveled glass is just so classy. The front camera works but looks like poo but they all are. OH! For some reason, the Sense launch bar at the bottom has a lot of aliasing on it. Tsk tsk, HTC.Read more ›
