Mark, Hampshire UK Phone, internet, navigation user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
This phone was a replacement for my HTC Wildfire S which suffered from poor battery life, a terrible camera, and a slow screen refresh. The Sensation is infinitely better, the camera is just great, the processor is very much faster and I have really quick internet access. The in car navigation is so much easier and safer too with the bigger screen, and overall I'm very pleased with it. I thought it might be too big, but not at all, it's big, but not too big for a pocket.
Bad points:
Unfortunately this phone was not available as an upgrade with my network supplier and as I didn't like the One S (which was) I had to buy it outright. I can't really fault this phone, it's not cheap, but overall I'm very happy with it.

Alan, Ipswich Business or web user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Much quicker processor than previous phone (HTC Desire). Screen bigger without much increase in phone size. More portable than latest 4.7" phones.
Bad points:
Battery life is poor, as with most smartphones, but has interchangeable battery (unlike the HTC One).
