Camera – HTC Sensation:

cool 8MP camera of HTC sensation allows you enjoy your photography experience. You can shoot photos in any angel in half resolutions or full. I suggest you always reduce your resolution to get fine quality image in long distance, images colors are amazing, well contrast and sharp lines. Good photo quality even in dark or low light resolutions.


Compare to battery life of  HTC Flyer, HTC Sensation battery performance is very good. Once charged no need to charge again, you can listen; watch movies, unlimited downloading and mp3 file listing throughout day. For that fact I liked very much to use HTC Sensation.


Even it’s looking modest; it’s high power process, solid aluminium case and customizes software apps draws major user attention to become fan. The retail price of HTC sensation is $659.
