I've had a HTC Sensation for a while, since first released. After around 2 weeks of getting it I was experiencing an issue with the screen not being very responsive. Difficult to unlock, text, answer calls! It's sooo annoying. Luckily I had my phone swap not problem by Vodafone. Now it's been around 4 weeks now since getting my replacement and just yesterday I've started with the same f-ing problem!

My Sensation is the same....I think ALL Sensations do it to a certain extent. It's not great at all - the screen on my Desire was a lot more responsive. I'm just hoping an update will sort it.
It's very very disappointing to be honest and if the issue isn't sorted by August I shall probably chop it in for the EVO 3D or may even try the GS2.
While the Sensation is a great phone, it really lets itself down by niggly little issues which should never ever be there.
The Sensation is my 3rd HTC Android phone and i must say, out of the 3, the Sensation has felt like the biggest disappointment....imho, its no better than the Desire other than the screen size....but the Amoled screen I had on my Desire was actually superior in quality to this Sensation.
I think HTCs problem is that they try to bring out too many new phones too quickly and I think in doing so the quality control just isnt there, it feels like they don't dedicate enough time with each model to make sure it functions perfectly because they are already thinking about the next project.
I mean, no sooner had they anounced the Incredible S as the latest greatest flagship, a few weeks later the Sensation is announced as the HTC flagship all bells and whistles model... And THEN another few weeks go by and the EVO 3D is announced.....I think HTC are putting a lot of customers off by making their flagship models get superceided so quickly. I buy on sim free so i upgrade when I like, but id imagine those fixed in 24 month contracts must be tearing their hair out as within 2 or 3 weeks of the contract their phones are outdated.
had to register just so i could have my input into this topic!
had a desire for 18 months and loved it.
upgraded last week to sensation, with great expectations.
did the usual playing around for 24 hours and thought i'd got a screen problem. when texting, characters weren't responding, swiping several times to unlock screen, buttons on web-pages not working, etc.
no case being used.
i went to vodafone shop to let them see.
store manager compared to his own sensation and said mine was, "slow". reported to vodafone, as i ordered mine on website as early upgrade.
handset swapped for new one.
kidding myself if i said this was 100% good, but it is a little better.

Add me to the list of Sensation users experiencing the unresponsive screen!
I've been bombarding @HTC with Tweets about it, and found a lot of forum threads similar to this one, over the last few days. HTC seem happy to accept videos, links, etc with evidence of the problem but so far there's been no oficial response that I'm aware of.
I'm HOPING that it's a software glitch that can be solved with a system update......

I haven't suffered any difficulties with the screen but once the screen was missed up (lots of orange lines in the middle and shaking I think it was due to the note apps from HTC hub) restarting the mobile and removing the app fixed it haven't suffered from this problem again
Just want to say that the mobile is a true beauty as long as u ignore the WiFi problem
Been using the Sensation since release and have no screen issues; UK Vodafone - no case.
I feel for those that have the problem but be careful jumping to conclusions and blaming HTC alone - don't forget that carriers introduce their own updates.
Slightly off topic: I've been running GoLauncherEX for over a week now and it's so much faster than HTC's Sense 3.0. It also offers more efficient screen use (more widgets) and has a whole bunch of customisation options. Sense for me could be a thing of the past...
I had this same problem i found the answer, well for me anyways.
I think the problem starts from when it is charged while using the phone on low battery, it seems to corrupt it and gradually gets worse.
The answer for me was to completely deplete battery ( i did this by going into photos and did a slide show untill phone switched off, i did this 2 or 3 times to make sure it wouldn't switch on) then remove battery for 5-10mins, while battery was out try and switch on, not sure what this would do apart from make sure there is zero charge within components. Then insert battery and charge fully before switching on.
Once charged fully, switch on and bingo, all was well again for me.
Hope this might help someone
