HTC Sensation comes with a fresh serving of Android 2.3 Gingerbread, but it's all about the HTC Sense UI version 3.0 with a touch of refinement and functionality straight from the lock screen. You can choose between a number of lock screen options such as weather updates, quick access to apps and a handful of clock widgets.
HTC Sensation comes with a fresh serving of Android 2.3 Gingerbread, but it's all about the HTC Sense UI version 3.0 with a touch of refinement and functionality straight from the lock screen. You can choose between a number of lock screen options such as weather updates, quick access to apps and a handful of clock widgets. A 1.2GHz Qualcomm dual-core chipset supports the nice 3D-like transitions in the menu, all carrying resemblance to the ones on the HTC Flyer tablet. The phone is the first with a contoured glass 4.3-inch display meaning that your Super LCD screen is set back slightly to avoid scratches. The resolution is qHD (540x960) with an aspect ratio of 16:9. On the back you have an 8MP camera with dual-LED flash with “instant capture,” meaning little to no lag between pictures.
A 1.5 GHz Qualcomm snapdragon dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB internal storage, 4.3″ qHD diplsay, an 8 MP camera with dual LED flash (same great camera as the myTouch 4G Slide), as well as a front camera for video chat. Those have all been officially confirmed along with Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread and HTC Sense UI. We originally thought this would launch with Sense UI 3.5 but the press shot above clearly shows that is not the case. The HTC Amaze 4G will support the new, faster HSPA+ 42 network on T-Mobile for enhanced data speeds, and will also come with full NFC capabilities.
On this week's episode, Jon discusses Android skins! HTC Sense UI, Motoblur, Touchwiz, and the like are all featured on this episode's rant chopping block. Jon shares his thoughts on how these custom Android skins that are forced upon users by manufacturers might actually be a disservice to the overall experience of Android itself.

The 2011 Consumer Electronics Show might as well have been called the 4G show, with many smartphone manufacturers unveiling new 4G smartphones. The HTC Thunderbolt is HTC’s entrance onto Verizon’s 4G LTE network. The HTC Thunderbolt is supposedly the phone that Verizon believes people have been “dreaming” about. That’s quite a bit to live up to and puts quite a lot of pressure on the HTC Thunderbolt.
For those familiar with the HTC Desire HD, the HTC Thunderbolt should look very familiar. In fact, it’d be safe to say that the HTC Thunderbolt is designed almost exactly like the HTC Desire HD. The biggest difference being that the HTC Thunderbolt can access Verizon’s new 4G LTE network.
Starting off the HTC Thunderbolt has a 4.3 inch WVGA TFT capacitive touchscreen display covering the front of the phone. Below the display are the usual set of Android shortcuts for menu, home, back and search. Up above is a small 1.3 inch megapixel front facing camera used for video chatting. Placed on the right is the volume rocker, opposite resides the microUSB, and on top the 3.5 mm headphone jack and power / lock button. The HTC Thunderbolt is rounded out on the back with an 8 megapixel camera and dual LED flash. Underneath, the camera on the back, is a small kickstand that can be lifted up from the back. It’s nicely designed and adds functionality to the HTC Thunderbolt.
The 4.3 inch display is decent and the viewing angle is fairly wide, however, compared to the likes of the Samsung Continuum on Verizon’s network, which utilizes Super AMOLED technology, it is a bit lacking. Also, with the likes of the iPhone and the soon to be released Motorola Droid Bionic on Verizon’s network, one has to wonder how well the HTC Thunderbolt will take off.
The HTC Thunderbolt comes with a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor and comes preloaded with Android 2.2 and HTC Sense. This is really no different than many of the other HTC, Motorola, and Samsung powered smartphones currently released. The recently announced Motorola Droid Bionic features a dual core processor, however, it showed signs of lag. The HTC Thunderbolt, with its single processor actually seemed to perform better. No noticeable lag and everything seemed to run without a hitch, including Adobe Flash.
The HTC Thunderbolt also comes with 8 GB of onboard storage, along with an expandable microSD slot. You can grab a 32 GB microSD and really expand the storage of the HTC Thunderbolt. One of the problems with Windows Phone 7 handsets, such as the HTC Surround 7, is that they don’t have expandable microSD slots. It seems the freedom of Android powered handsets has given them the edge in storage space.
HTC's Wildfire is a low-cost Android smartphone that tries to offer most of the feature of higher-end devices like the Desire. It sports only a QVGA touchscreen, but comes with all of the HTC sense user interface goodies that users want. More info: http://www.mobileburn.com/review.jsp?Id=9449
Here's Russell's live look at the slick, yet affordable, HTC Wildfire from an event in London last week. The Wildfire sports a modern design and features like an optical joystick and an update HTC Sense UI, yet should be quite affordable for consumers.
