Didn't take them long, amazon already price matched so I've ordered.

Although friday I ordered a Sony Arc S from amazon and they sent a USED one, even had pictures on it..... sent it back today and will hopefully get a new one of these instead

Amazon deal

Sadly not, just of some guys workplace.....

Amazing phone. Had my Sensation XE for 5 days now and I actually want to marry it (I really do)

Don't do it. Battery life is terrible, the phone's far too quiet, Sense 3.0 is a step backwards. Custom ROMs have only made it worse. Still get it if you want to, but this is advice from an owner.

I probably will, bar trying a few things to fix it. I get 24 hours on the custom rom, and 2 days on the standard. Bear in mind that's running the phone at a minimum - no background data enabled etc., very light use.

I have this and the battery easily lasts a day with my having several accounts syncing and checking facebook all the time
Great phone.

Hey guys, has it got any FRONT Camera? IF so, anyone tried it on SKYPE. Would be grateful for feedback pls... Thank You.

Is it best to order from Play or Amazon then? Play have 3.5% Quidco but some people mentioned at the beginning that they were ordering from Amazon

Me likey. Me wanty.

I have the XE haven't had a problem with the battery until today. I left it to charge overnight, woke up at 2am and it was at 99% so took it off charge. Then woke up at 7.30am and it was completely flat that it had turned itself off! Have no idea why as internet was off etc. Baffled.

For me that answer depends on what your liek with returns, if like me and a tiny niggle gets your returning something then go with amazon. If your 100% your keeping it and every penny counts then go play.... Play are OK but I always go Amazon over anyone else

Also, does anyone know if this is compatible with giffgaff sims?

I got three days out of my HTC Desire S because I conditioned the battery properly when I bought it. Such a shame that HTC released a software update then which killed the 4G signal and forced me to change models.

Can it really be that hard to develop a decent phone which doesn't need charging every single day?

Yes it is, just get either giffgaff tools (by paul shirley) or Tweakker from google marketplace to install the settings

Got the phone well happy, will suggest if you are a heavy user get the 1900mah anker battery,s off amazon, get a full days use out of it now easily, i got it on 3 one plan signal i good in my area watch tv (through tv catch up and firstrowsports for sky sports), also put films on easily look on youtube, i have purchased a pair of senheisser headphones as the standard pair seem a little quiet

hot just for the 4.0 name

Just out of curiosity, why would I need to download these apps? Is giffgaff not the best of the networks for this, or is there another reason?

Sounds like all those apps do (the giffgaff one at least) is just add the relevant APN settings for mobile internet and MMS.

That's correct, giffgaff will work straight away but in order to get Internet and MMS you need the settings, inputting them manually is a pain so these apps make it a doddle..... The paul shirly one also has a few cool features like goodybag balance check, voicemail on and off etc......

Like I said on the other HTC Sensation thread, 1GB of onboard storage is an absolute joke. Which is why I'll be buying an SGS2 once I sell my Galaxy S and Omnia 7 phones.

I sent mine back 3 times and finally its sorted. The battery lasted only a few hours and if you picked the phone up it lost signal.

Now I love it better than my old iPhone.

Install Juice defender and that helps the battery last all day no problem.

Also just to give my bit regarding giffgaff, The £10 bag works a treat.

I second the Juice Defender comment, definitely an app that will transform your battery life.
