    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 ...

    As one of the top-tier smartphones around, it's no surprise that HTC debuted the Sensation 4G with Android Gingerbread when it was released earlier this summer. Though that's a strong place to start, there's always room for more Android updates, and it looks like the latest to come to the Sensation 4G is doing so presently. Sensation 4G owners on T-Mobile should start receiving notifications that system software 1.45.531.1 is available for installation, bringing the smartphone up slightly to Android 2.3.4. What will the update bring to the platform? For starters, there's the usual claim of ...

    Just moment sago we informed you that HTC had just released the kernel source code for several of their devices. Now we have learned that both the Sensation 4G and the Evo 3D have received "S-Off"! Wow. That was fast! S-Off, for those of you who don't know, is the key to loading a custom Recovery Image, which is the first step to install a custome ROM, tweaked kernel, and even some themes. The application that allows you to do this is reportedly still an early beta, so please take care if you decide to run it. The instructions (and ramification of doing it wrong) are not for the feint of ...

    The source code for several HTC devices (based on the 2.6.35 Linux Kernel) was just released. The Salsa, Chacha (and Chachacha), Evo 4G, Evo 3D, Droid Incredible 2, and the Sensation 4G all now have their kernel's source code available to the hobbyist community. The kernel is "the central component of most computer operating systems; it is a bridge between applications and the actual data processing done at the hardware level. The kernel's responsibilities include managing the system's resources (the communication between hardware and software components). Usually as a basic component of ...

    Every now and then we run a couple of hardware hacks besides all those software bits you are used to reading on our site, from the good old days of our own Adam Lein's custom-painted HTC Touch Diamond. How cool would a T-Mobile HTC Sensation 4G look with polished chrome bezel and backplate? This good! On one hand, we'd say "if Paul White managed to do it, so could you" but on the other hand it's pretty risky as there's really no turning back. At the end of the day, it's really up to you what you do to your phone but an HTC Sensation 4G that looks like the one pictured above will definitely ...

    Good news for HTC Android smartphone users, at least for those who own a Sensation, Sensation 4G or EVO 3D as the Taiwanese manufacturer announced that it will be unlocking bootloaders next month. There was quite a story behind the HTC Android bootloaders with the manufacturer promising an unlock and then updating on the status, telling the world they're working on the issue. More recently HTC announced on its Facebook page that it will be rolling out software updates for the HTC Sensation, the T-Mobile variant (the Sensation 4G) and the Sprint EVO 3D. These updates will already contain ...

    Regardless if you have a "limited edition" white EVO 3D or just your regular one that does or does not overheat, you can now overclock the phone and then put it to the test against the Galaxy S II. Since the EVO 3D and the Sensation are so close in terms of internals, the overclocking is reportedly applicable to both. With a custom kernel it was possible to overclock the EVO 3D to an insane 1.8GHz and get great results in benchmark apps demoed in the video above. Since the developer doesn't have a Pyramid to test with, it is currently only available for the EVO 3D and you can read more at ...

    We gave the HTC Sensation high marks in terms of hardware; not surprising, as HTC builds devices with fantastic build quality. But after about a month of use, we might have to reconsider the build quality of the Sensation. It turns out that if you have a nervous habit of removing the back battery cover, the volume rocker of the Sensation might fall out, as happened to us. Worse, we don't know where exactly the volume rocker fell out, so we're left with an inoperable volume switch (only usable if you find a key or paper clip to press the inset buttons). Has anyone else had this hardware ...

    HTC's uber phone for 2011, the HTC Sensation, is currently available in the US as the Sensation 4G on T-Mobile. The Sensation has Qualcomm's new dual-core 1.2GHz CPU with 768MB of RAM, and a spacious 4.3" qHD display. It's also available overseas in unlocked form. Until now, you couldn't get a Sensation that works on AT&T's 3G (and 4G, with HSPA+) network. Over at Negri Electronics, an AT&T-compatible Sensation is available for a pricey $700. We don't see it as likely that AT&T will get the Sensation in its current form, so this particular model might be your only opportunity to get the ...

    Lately, we've been getting news of plenty of the hot smartphones of the moment making plans for debuts in Canada. Early last month, we heard about Samsung's Galaxy S2 getting ready for Canada, followed shortly thereafter by a rumor of the HTC Sensation prepping for a Canadian launch of its own. Now Best Buy's Canadian website has tipped what an on-contract Sensation will cost buyers, but is it too much for what you're getting? If you want to pick up the HTC Sensation 4G for Bell in Canada, the smartphone will set you back about $150 with a three-year service agreement. In and of itself, ...

    Here's how the story goes: Nokia launches the N9 MeeGo smartphone with eight-megapixel camera and Carl Zeiss optics to later show off a couple of (amazing) samples as well as a comparison according to which the camera is the fastest on the market. Probably offended by the fact that Nokia is not up to date with the latest and greatest HTC smartphone (or that the HD7 was the slowest on the chart), the Taiwanese manufacturer strikes back on Twitter. "The HTC Sensation's camera is the quickest draw in the West (and East, and South and North...)", says HTC. According to Stuff-review's test ...

    A couple of days ago we told you that the HTC-made Sprint EVO 3D has been rooted but the tools were not made public yet. Since the HTC Sensation and the EVO 3D have similar internals, the tools are supporting both smartphones and have now gone public. These are Fre3vo and Fre3dom. Fre3vo is a temp-root acquiring tool, allowing users access to a root shell on their HTC EVO 3D and Sensation devices. Fre3domis the name of the tool being developed to enable S-OFF on the EVO 3D and Sensation. Fre3vo is already available if you follow the source link where you'll find links, instructions as well ...

    If we earlier heard about a possible Bell Canada exclusive on the new HTC Sensation this July we've now got news for you! Virgin Mobile Canada has tweeted that the smartphone will be featured in its line-up. The non-3D flagship made in Taiwan -- a very solid Android smartphone that got 4.5 out of 5 in our review -- will be on Virgin -- though no details were made public at this moment -- as well as on Bell, which already announced it coming in a few weeks for $549.95. It will be a great alternative for those who don't want/like the Samsung Galaxy S II that will also come to Canada. Source: ...
