The HTC Sensation is a device with a stronger focus on video recording than ever before, with 1080p footage possible from the 8MP sensor, thanks to the dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm processor.

A video light is on offer to help make shots look that little bit classier and at 30fps the footage we captured is nice and smooth, with no hint of the choppiness affecting the likes of the HTC Desire HD from before.

What is nice is the touch to focus option on offer, meaning you can choose what part of the screen the footage will be looking at. Be warned, only use a feather touch for this, as otherwise you'll shake the living daylights out of your recording.

If you want to port your HD video across to a larger TV, you can either do this through the Connected Media sharing over DLNA or fork out for the MHL lead to bring HDMI connectivity to your phone - no luck getting this on the box unfortunately.
