The HTC Sensation is a large, slab-shaped device with rounded corners and smatterings of soft touch plastic on the rear. The large qHD (540 x 960 pixel) display dominates the front of the device, with the usual Android home, menu, back, and search keys below, all of which are touch sensitive and illuminate in white. The HTC Sensation measures in at 126.1 x 65.4 x 11.3mm (4.96 x 2.57 x .44in) and weighs 148g (5.22oz), putting it between the Desire S and Desire HD on both counts.
