Hi - anyone bought one of these, I know there is a White cover thread, but anyone bought the black one with beats audio?

Does it fit the original HTC Sensation? Anyone have pics they can share?

That's for the Sensation XE. Would it even fit/be compatible?

It will work with the regular Sensation, but not the Sensation 4G

There's a standard 3G Sensation?

I thought there was the Sensation which was the Sensation 4G, the XE and the XL.

Yes.
There's the Sensation (The original one), Sensation 4G (for the US), Sensation XE (The beats version of the original) & Sensation XL (Bigger screen, slower processor)

The Sensation 4G has an extra antenna in it to be able to use 4G. (Meaning there's an extra connector on the inside of the battery cover)
The Sensation & Sensation XE are both 3G only phones.

but the sensation "4g" is really just 3g, its HSPA+. I thought I read somewhere that the missing antenna has no effect whatsoever on reception/data.

Nope.
It's 3G like the regular Sensation.

It will fit on a Sensation 4G but like i said, one of the antennas won't connect to it like the rest.
I've seen a few people say that it doesn't make much difference, but others have said it means that you hardly get any signal. Have a look at some threads that talk about both phones and make a decision based on what you read.

I've had that beats cover on my phone for the last few weeks. I have a TMobile Sensation 4G. It works just fine with it
