When the Sensation found it’s way to T-Mobile USA it had all the bells and whistles pointing to a top-notch piece of Android loving hardware. Of course every phone is going to have it’s issues but as the flagship for the Spring/Summer season of HTC devices we were expecting a pretty solid experience.
More after the break
Back in June GSMArena reported on a “Death Grip” problem similar to Apple’s problem with the iPhone 4. However what made the HTC Sensation’s problem unique, and possibly a little worse, was that the death grip came from wifi not from a cellular signal. The thorough folks at GSMArena also tried to recreate the problem on more than one HTC Sensation, and YES they were able to.
Now to compliment the wi-fi death group, a bunch of HTC Sensation users are reporting on forums like XDA that their screens are becoming unresponsive, rather quickly. Take into consideration the phone has only been out to market about 2 months.
According to GSMArena the problem is starting to surface about a week into ownership. The Touchscreen seems to work fine until then. While some have debated whether it’s the strength in which you press it, we don’t see people reporting this to XDA to be the soft fingered variety that just aren’t pushing things hard enough. In fact, XDA users would be more inclined to make sure there is a problem to report before reporting it and now the thread on this issues is over 650 entries long.
