HTC Sensation - Yes it is!
Had the phone for a month now, and its fantastic. 2nd HTC phone and verry happy with it. Pinsharp display, great camera/video. Must admit that battery life has not been much of a problem, and I do have wifi constantly on, but not the GPS (which is always a heavy drain on ANY phone). Holds signal well, even in weak areas, and sound is crystal clear. I would highly recommend this phone to any one.

Only had the HTC Sensation a few days now and I am very impressed. Very powerful and very fast. You hear people complain about the battery power, well yes it does need charging more regularly but that is because you will be using it all the time. Never thought I would say that but it is true, from checking mail to browsing the internet it is a joy to use. As with all smartphones just make sure to get a car charger too.

I love this phone. It's really quick and responsive. It took my few days to get used to the touchscreen but it's slowly becoming my second nature.
