Yet another amazing phone that will never make it to Verizon. Loyal VZ customer but getting sick of this shit with their nasty phone selection

Verizon's HTC equivalent will come next summer when the mobile world has moved on to quad cores...just like V got the Tbolt a yr after the EVO came out, now that we're on duocores. Just my .02. Always a day late and....

Thats exactly right a year behind others in phone offering, the one with some nice features the Bioninc is now delayed and they keep trying to sell the outdated Thunderbolt and Charge, oh well unfortunately they have the best coverage so we will have to drool over TMobile and Att s phone selection

I want this phone. This is what I've been waiting for to upgrade from the Incredible. If this doesn't come to Verizon I'll be going wherever it is.

Meh. Looks like a great phone but the looked and signed bootloader kills it for me. Bad move, HTC. I guess my next phone will either be the next Nexus phone or a Samsung.

SENSE 3.0 is nice just loaded eViL Dee MyTouch 4G port again.... i can't seem to leave it alone.

You're right! Give us the release date for evo 3d! Sensation will be nice for tmobile but evo 3d is and will be king! Stop being so quiet, come on!!!

God I hate VZW, please inflict a plague against them until they hook us phones people actually want and not junk.

What exactly makes the "Sensation" the HTC "Flagship" phone?

1) The specs on the Evo 3D are the same or nearly the same down the line
2) There are features on the Evo 3D that are not on the Sensation (+3D display, +3D camera)
3) It is likely there will be FAR more Evo 3D's sold than Sensations
4) I have not seen HTC refer to the Sensation as their "Flagship" phone ANYWHERE. Provide a link, please.

Just curious...

Well in case you didn't know HTC also releases phones in the European market and from what I've read THIS is the flagship phone over there and kind of a big deal. So it's only right to assume that this would also be the flagship phone over here.
So really the Evo 3D is just a Sensation sister phone that has one added feature (which is a total gimmick anyway).

The sensation is a beautiful wonderful phone but I'll be the guy standing next to the sensation owner with my evo 3d saying " that's cool, but can your phone do this?" Evo 3d please!

I COMPLETELY AGREE. It is the middle of May and still, no word on the Evo 3D price or release date!! THIS IS MADNESS! At this point last year, we had a price, a release date, and virtuallu every question about the Evo 4G answered. What's taking so long for them to announce (I'll settle for a leak at this point) something? Come on, HTC! I know you don't wanna take any thunder away from the Sensation's launch, but throw us a bone.

This is nice but Sprint and HTC have put a lock down on all information regarding the Evo 3D. I mean this phone is like a rumor that just disappeared. If it's suppose to launch in early June, where is all the news and marketing? We have one unofficial pre-order that you have to ask about from Best Buy and a ad in ESPN. I'm like a spoiled child anxiously waiting for Christmas morning lol.

I like the Sensation looks much more than the Evo3d. Every htc phone seems to get the stupid circles around the function buttons. And the gaudy red ring around the rear camera lens is just too thick. The 3d buttons on/off buttons on the side look silly. I'm sure it will be fun to use but imo its design is just a hot mess. I like the Sensation because its minimalist and sleek. It might not have the specs the EVO3d has with the 3d functionality but its a much more mature looking device. The HTC devices at least running android for Sprint all seem to have those ugly circles on the function buttons.

Those circles are just a part of the EVO design which I do agree are kind of ugly. The Sensation looks like a wonderful phone and I have no need for silly gimmicks like 3D on my phone anyway. The only thing I'd like, but wouldn't be able to use yet, is NFC.
