If you are late to the smartphone party, having not used one before, or if you are looking for a first smartphone for your son or daughter, there are a lot of choices out there. While it may seem that the hugely popular iPhone is a good way to go, the handsets are expensive and if you aren’t already involved in the Apple ecosystem with a Mac or an iPad you may find the cost prohibitive for something that you probably won’t use a large percentage of the benefits of. Android phones give you far more choice when it comes to the handsets you can buy, so you can choose one that suits your needs and budget, but how should a novice choose which one to buy?
What Makes HTC Phones Great
HTC are one of the biggest manufacturers of mobile phones, and have become more and more popular in the Android market over the past few years. This is down to their wide range of models, containing something to appeal to everybody, their different price points, allowing people who want a budget phone to get a good product but also for those who want the very best to get their wishes, and their excellent design, both in terms of hardware and UI. HTC has created some of the best selling Android devices out there, and have many happy users who wouldn’t swap their HTC phones for any other brand.
The HTC Sensation
The HTC Sensation is one of HTC’s flagship phones, and has a lot to offer. Its 4.3” screen is ideal for playing games, watching movies and of course reading email, websites and even books, but its sleek design makes it somehow look and feel a lot smaller than the large screen size would have you expect. It has a dual core processor, which makes it fast, and it runs Google’s Android Ice Cream Sandwich OS. If that sounds like a bit of a mouthful, all it means is that it runs one of the latest and best operating systems, which gives you lots of capabilities.
What Makes the HTC Sensation Ideal for Experienced Users and Novices Alike?
The Sensation is really easy to use, thanks in part to the HTC Sense interface. The interface is how you interact with the underlying Android system, using the phone’s screen, menus and the touch screen device itself. HTC’s Sense interface is one of the best on the market, and really gets the most out of all the things Android can do. This means you’ll find all the things you need a phone to do, like calling, texting and storing contacts really easy, and as a beginner, you can get into the more advanced capabilities like surfing the web, installing and using apps, social networking and more really easily. It also has a really good camera, which you can enjoy taking pictures with inside and out thanks to its powerful LED flash.
