Just as the thread title says, those of you who own the phone - What do you think?

How is the real world battery life?

If they can achieve S-Off or HTC does for them, then this is a winner.
That's what I'm thinking...its a sleek phone. Dare I say the sleekest HTC phone?

Only 12 Hours? I was looking to get this, but I wish the battery life was longer. Were you doing an intensive tasks, or was this normal day-to-day use?

The 12 hrs included a couple hours of phone calls, about 80 texts, multiple tweets, about 45 minutes of games, and had 2 Twitter accounts, weather, gmail, and facebook refreshing regularly. Yesterday with minimal use I got 16 hrs with about 30% battery left when I went to bed. Battery life is good on this phone.

Are any devs working on this phone? I want one but I can't handle sense. I was gonna get a g2x but Tmo can't keep them in stock so it looks like this is the next best option. Am I right?

I've heard the G2x sucks. The T-mobile rep at my local store said it was a piece of crap and that they wished they had just waited on the Sensation.

I have had the sensation for about 4 days and I can say it is my favorite android device. sense 3.0 is actually quite good
. I had the g2x before this phone and I can say that this phone is MUCH better. the battery life is much much better and it doesn't have random reboots like the g2x had. also the gps works great! that was a biggy for me since the g2x had random gps issues. once this phones bootloader is unlocked this phone will be amazing! i've had over 14 different android phones and i have to say that i like the sense skin on this better than stock! i know shocker! lol

Hmmmm. That is very interesting. Mine should be here Tuesday so we'll see if I agree with you about the new sense. Hopefully we wont have to wait long for the bootloader to be unlocked.

Yea i'm really looking forward to some custom sense roms so we can get even faster speed, better battery, and more free memory. I'm just glad that HTC is going to be unlocking the bootloader!

Well if it sucks why can't they keep it in stock? Seemed to run very well to me. Did they say why it sucked?
I can tell you why they suck.. Constant reboots, lockups, freezes requiring battery to be pulled. This happens with Stock ROM, custom ROM, custom Kernel, Stock Kernel.

I went through 4 of them in a month and each one had the same problem, even with nothing installed on it other than what it shipped with... Yeah - it sucks that bad. And a LOT of people are having the same problems.

Well maybe that is why they can't keep them in stock. I hope I'm pleased with the sensation. Can't wait to get it and see if it gets the kind of development the evo and thunderbolt have been getting. I will be upset if this turns out to be ignored by devs.

I'd like to confirm, it lasts about 12 to 13 hours for me. Really love this phone.

I found that just turning off the htc sync helps battery tremendously! Standby drain is waaayy better than before. I would say atleast 3 to 5 hours extra from early results.
