    Have had my Sensation for 1 week and it's started to exibit really strange behavior. The unlock ring doesn't always respond to my touch it sometimres takes 2 or 4 tries to unlock the screen. Also, the number dial pad is somtimes slow to respond or doesn't respond to the first touch. The spinning 3d screens also don't work all the time, somtimes it just opens apps rather than spinning. It's really inconsistent doesn't happen all the time but when it does it's really a problem. From the reasearch I've done it seems like it's a common problem with alot of people after they have owned the phone a week or so. I don't see any posts here about it though? I'm cosidering returning the phone before my 2 weeks is up.

    They are working on a fix for this. for what ever reason this phone doesn't seem to be that popular. but the more people that write to HTC about this problem that faster they will take care of it.

    I have a problem with getting a GPS lock
    I have a screen respond problem as well.
    I have a bluetooth reception problem i use JB era and JB icon and after moving the phone about 2 feet or so i start to get distortions.
    I have problems with Google Nav the Screen dims while navigating.
    after quieting some apps i get the HTC sence reboots it self. (the white background with the HTC and then the wheel with all the icons gone until it finished rebooting.

    I get a feeling there something wrong with New CPU maybe HTC doesn't know how to work with it. I would like to know if the Sprint HTC EVo 3D has similar problem.

    Early adapters of a device will ALWAYS suffer growing pains... Many issues will be fixed as time moves along... If you don't want to suffer the growing pains of a new device then I suggest you wait 3 to 4 months after it's released to actually buy it...

    It happens with EVERY device, the Sensation is no exception...

    Did you put a screen protector on it? I had a cheap one on mine and it wouldn't respond. Pulled it off and it was perfect.

    If its plugged into the wall and charging the touch screen has issues. But if its having other touch screen issues while its not plugged in, or its in a computer, most issues will be fixed when 2.3.4 comes around.

    pcdebb, I also had a screen protector installed at the store and everything was fine untill about a month after and then I started having problems. I then installed a new screen protector and was good for about another month , then started having problems again. I have been through 4 screen protectors , now I dont use one and have had no problems with my unlock ring or any touch issues .
