lokhor: I think we will definitely all try to get some video of how the HTC Sensation performs. I will have to try recording it with my SGS so not sure how stable my hands are.

Both WiFi and XT, at same location.



I'm not particularly close to a Telecom cell tower so that's a fairly good indicator of XT's performance I think.

Not that I'm competitive at all, you understand. :-)

Edit: Combined tests into single post





Galaxy S has gone to its new owner. HTC Sensation has gone to its new
owner. Galaxy S3 has gone to its new owner. Now using Galaxy Note 3. Skipping Note 4 I think...

That's the problem with ADSL, you won't get near the uploads you can achieve over HSPA+ :)

Looks like the Sensation has excellent reception and 3G speeds, no matter the provider.

Hong Kong, and it's unbranded so no carrier logos, but it's using the VF / 2degrees network.

It helps to get someone else to hold the cam-phone. But then they have to know how to frame a shot and keep the shot in the frame.

Harder than it sounds....to find a person who can do that.

Was $805 delivered, inclusive of GST, no customs charges. This was 2 weeks ago, $USD exchange rate will have shifted since then. Will be best to make your own enquiries as to a current price. And they buy to order, so you have to wait for it to be shipped out of HK. Mine has taken 2 weeks from order date.
