I had this phone for over 3 weeks. I experienced alot of minor glitches for the 1st few days. There was once where I am unable to switch on the phone till i took out the battery and SIM card. The battery drain was really fast for the default settings.
After tweaking the settings and switching off the auto sync function, the phone is able to last 1 full day with normal usage. The sense 3.0 is great and it runs smoothly with all the games and software. Unfortunately it doesnt support graphic intensive games like Asphalt etc. Such a waste to exclude a dual core phone from these apps.
Overall I feel that the sensation is just a normal high end phone with nothing special to offer. It works smoothly 99% of the time. Wish it could be better.
