    Yes, I know the answer to this one!!!!


    NO it doesn't and personally I think it adds a very nice touch to the sensation.

    I remember that video... and I couldn't tell if it was beveled upward or downward. If upward, no thanks. means it's easier to scuff/scratch. Does look nice though.

    From the lighting, it's hard to tell. But it is concaved because they mention how the walls of the phone are higher and the screen dips in to reduce the chance that dirt/sand will scratch the screen when the unit is face down.

    The E3D won't have this? Oh well, that sucks. Screen protector, here I come.

    The lack of beveled edge for our screen may not be a bad thing. Engadget wasn't too excited over the quality:
    HTC Sensation review -- Engadget

    I just thought, the glass is probably seperate (at some point) from the actuall display, so my point is really no point, is it? DOH! :eek:

    Good point, but engadget does not like anything without a half eaten Apple sticker on it.

    A year ago I would have agreed completely, but they have been getting better about reviewing stuff and not bashing it for not being Apple.

    Now don't get me wrong, they do think that everything Apple is nearly perfect still, but they are getting better on the other reviews, the Sensation one doesn't even mention the iPhone, which is pretty rare in any of their Android reviews.

    That may be (or have been) teh case, but the video compared it with a Desire, and the view was def washed out in comparison for anything other than head on. The desire had a MUCH better picture than the Sensation. But I'm unsure if the actual screens themselves on the Sensation & 3VO are the smae, or as different as the glass??? :thinking:

    I wish the screen WAS beveled as to avoid that screen separation issue from the 1st gen.
