    If you've got one of the "older" HTC Sensations and wanted to breathe a little new life into it, why not throw on a new camera app? This app does require that you're running an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich-based ROM, but by flashing it through ClockworkMod Recovery you'll unlock the following super-cool features: + Ability to record uncompressed video and audio + Record video in 1080p at 20mbps + Provides increased video recording quality + Better JPG images + Bigger cap on image filesizes Sound like something you'd like to try? If so, we'd love to hear your thoughts on how much ...

    This time last month, we had just gotten word about HTC's plans for the white Sensation, which would arrive with Ice Cream Sandwich already installed. We noted at the time how odd it seemed that the image HTC had released showed the phone on an older version of Sense, instead of the Sense 4.0 we'd expect. With the white Sensation released, and OTA updates to existing Sensation-series phones starting to trickle out, it's now apparent that HTC is delivering Ice Cream Sandwich updates with Sense 3.6. This is understandably disappointing news for Sensation owners, though Sense 3.6 at least ...

    As we start to get into mid-February, there are probably a lot of you out there wondering where all the Ice Cream Sandwich updates for your existing Android phones are. After all, weren't we hoping to see these releases really start arriving in early 2012? The good news is that the wait is nearly over, at least for some HTC users. The smartphone manufacturer posted a message to Facebook this morning talking about plans for the delivery of its first Ice Cream Sandwich updates in March. We already knew about HTC's plans to start selling phones running Android 4.0 in March, with the launch of ...

    Besides "don't download apps from sketchy sources", one of the big rules of keeping your Android device safe is "think carefully about approving app requests for system permissions". That latter one can be tricky to encourage, since it requires the user to do a bit of critical thinking at the time of installation; does that Sudoku-solving app you downloaded really need the ability to send SMS messages? The idea is, though, that if you are smart about granting permissions, you can stop malicious apps from taking advantage of you. Sometimes it's not that simple, and the request of a ...

    Back in November HTC told its users about initial plans to deliver the Ice Cream Sandwich update to some of its devices. These were the HTC Sensation, HTC Sensation XL and HTC Sensation XE, as well as the HTC Rezound, HTC EVO 3D, HTC EVO Design 4G and HTC Amaze 4G. HTC Turkey seems to have taken to Facebook a table (the one above) detailing devices that will get the new Android update as well as an approximate time for the roll-out process. Aside from a confirmed December 2011 date for the EVO 3D (which seems to be late), the list says January will be the month to expect the update for ...

    Yesterday we told you about the arrival of a new ROM for the HTC Sensation, one that would give the phone's owners an early taste of Ice Cream Sandwich, while keeping the HTC look-and-feel with the inclusion of Sense 3.5. We only gave you a brief look at it then, but by now Sensation users have been able to dive into the release, documenting it by means of screenshots. If you've been on the fence about flashing the ROM, or just weren't lucky enough to have the right HTC hardware to check out, now you can at least browse through the imagery below to get a sense of what you're missing. If ...

    HTC has promised an Android 4.0 upgrade to owners of the HTC Sensation, Sensation XL, Sensation XE, Rezound, EVO 3D, EVO 4G Design 4G, and Amaze 4G. But for those that can't wait, you can now install a ROM that merges HTC Sense 3.5 with Ice Cream Sandwich for the HTC Sensation that is based on an official test build of ICS for Sense. Those that have flashed the ROM are reporting that most everything is working. Hit the source link to grab the ROM. Source: XDA

    HTC Android fans who are into some serious phone customization are coming home to some good news tonight, with HTC releasing the kernel source code to over half-a-dozen devices. The arrival of these code bases means that you might hope to see some new custom ROMs start arriving in the coming weeks. Just what models are covered? First up, we've got the HTC Vivid, which came to AT&T early last month. Next we have the Salsa, one of the two HTC models featuring a hardware Facebook button (alongside the ChaCha). Both the original Incredible and its follow-up, the Incredible S, make the cut. ...

    If you have a European HTC Sensation you probably already received an over-the-air update notification (and if not, you might need to manually check for a refresh from your Settings). HTC is pushing out a 1.50.401.1 update which contains some goodies. From Evgeni Pavlov, Product Manager at HTC Russia, we find out what the update is all about: "Twitter API, Qualcomm patch, Touch pannel drivers, Market v.3 apps availability". If you're a Twitter fan, the new API update should make sure your online experience is flawless while the Qualcomm patch and touch panel drivers should take care of ...

    Many HTC Sensation owners have reported problems with music playback cutting out or songs skipping or pausing at random. The problems seem to all be related to headphone use. They don't happen when headphones aren't used. This was the clue to the root of the problem -- actually two problems. If you've experienced these issues, take a look at your headphone-jack. Do you see any little chips or scratches around it? That's your problem. The design of the HTC Sensation allows your headphones to constantly "touch" the cover. Eventually scratches or chips in the coating appear, which expose the ...

    HTC's flagship for 2011 is the Sensation. It will see many variants on many carriers, and for some time it will be revered as a benchmark device against which all other smarpthones will be compared. HTC went to great lengths to make sure the Sensation would provide enough power, functionality, and capability to appease even the most demanding smartphone users. The Sensation comes with Qualcomm's brand new dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon chip, plus a high-resolution qHD display, providing 960x540 pixels. And with that, HTC is debuting its new Sense 3.0 Android interface, which takes full ...

    European versions of the HTC Sensation are getting over-the-air update notifications which probably have to do something with the recently discovered vulnerabilities for which HTC is believed to be the culprit. At the beginning of October it has been discovered that any application requesting Internet permission is able to access sensitive data due to HTC's HtcLoggers.apk. The manufacturer admitted to the existence of the vulnerability and promised a quick fix. The description of the 9MB update doesn't mention anything related to the issue but contains only generic description of ...

    We've been tracking the HTC Runnymede for a while now, and even came across its retail branding as the Sensation XL. Now official, the new Android 2.3 handset from HTC packs a large 4.7" Super LCD display that packs 800x480 resolution, just like the Windows Phone 7-based Titan. Also like the Titan, it has a single-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm CPU. And similar to the Sensation XE, the XL has Beats by Dre integration, which is a fancy way of saying that you get high-quality headphones in the box, plus some software to make music sound better. Check out the below videos for a closer look! This is ...

    Security is becoming an issue more and more on phones running Google's Android platform. The rule of thumb usually is that there is either a platform vulnerability which is usually fixed by Google or there are malware-infected apps in the Android Market which are eventually deleted by Google (both from the Market and off devices). The recent vulnerability seems to be HTC's fault; apparently there's a huge security flaw which affects Android phones manufactured by the Taiwanese phone-maker (U.S. models only according to some reports). Models believed to be affected are the EVO 4G, EVO 3D, ...

    The HTC Runnymede will launch as the HTC Sensation XL, according to a reliable source, and not the HTC Bass, as previously rumored. It will allegedly come in two Beats Audio-themed bundles: one with iBeats earbuds and another, special, edition containing over-the-ear Beats Solo headphones. The supposed branding here is somewhat interesting because, unlike the Sensation XE, Runnymede's specs differ significantly from the original Sensation's: its rumored single-core, 1.5GHz processor and 4.7-inch screen make it sound more akin to the HTC Titan Windows Phone than the dual-core, 4.3-inch ...
