For those at the back the HTC Sensation was revealed back in April and comes with some seriously smart features. We're talking a dual-core processor, 1080p HD video recording, a massive 4.3-inch Gorilla Glass screen and an 8 megapixel snapper round the back.

It's perhaps no surprise that the SIM-free price is so high. But you can expect the networks to chip in with their own subsidised offers. Don't be surprised to see this number going free on contract very soon.
