So far I'm in love with it. Battery is pretty damn good. Got better after a few charge. The screen is just insane dude. Fast responsive. Good camera. Kinda hate the fc wide angle makes people at both ends of picture look morphed. Lol.

Working in China and bought this phone recently without realizing that there is no Google Play but instead factory load "HTC marketplace" with Chinese apps (copied into Chinese version). Contacted HTC China technical support, they only said sorry and sorry this phone cannot have Google Play and for China users only......

The software information

HTC Sense 4+
Software No. 1.0.0.X920e
HTC SDK API level 4.64
HTC Extention version HTCExtention_Sense45_4
Kernel 3.4.10-g15e6480 root@abm016 #1 SMP PREEMPT

Yes, China has disgraced Android by removing all Google apps from their devices. I'm not even sure you can call a device Android without Google Apps. China should be bitch slapped for crippling the device in this fashion.

Anyway, this is why XDA exists. To get google apps follow the instructions below. Should take you about 10 minutes to complete. Thanks to Red_Trala for the writeup.

I'm thinking about getting this too. What carrier are you using..? How is your HSPA signal..? Also, no wireless charging..? But at least you have the microSD slot for extra storage. That's a hard trade off due to the damn flap on the bottom. I tested the DNA for a few weeks but due to the fact that I don't get 4gLTE in my town and I get better signal and better data on at&t in my town, I'm sticking with at&t. The one thing I did love was the wireless charging so I didn't need to mess with the flap. I can only see that getting worn down/damaged over time.

Thank you for contacting HTC.

We are very sorry for the inconvenience. Since your handset is shipping to China. As you know, for some business reason Google do not serve for China any more. Then Chinese Government won’t allow Google apps installed in the handset. In the Android system, HTC won’t install the Google play store for the device which is shipping to China. Because all the software in the HTC handset need to be verified by Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of the People's Republic of China. So we are very sorry to say that we can’t help you to install the Google Play. If you want to download some apps which you can’t found in HTC marketplace , may be you can try to search on the other website. Should you require further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us again. We look forward to be of service to you again.

Have a nice day!

BTW, I have 3 other HTC Sensation (with Chinese SIM/Nos), One X and One X+ (bought in Malaysia) and the Google Play Store work fine here except that I just can't connect the Facebook, YouTube and those banned in China. When returning to Malaysia they are normalise. This crap about Chinese Ministry is b/s and that would just encourage foreigners bringing their own phones or buy foreign phones from gery market, that's help the economy....

That's why I unlocked and rooted the device. And for youtube and facebook, a good VPN will fix that. On the bright side China could require all devices be shipped with an encrypted bootloader. So at least the option is still available to root and get google play on the device.

Thanks jievy. I read your post also in other thread pertaining to X920e and at my age of 53, I can be so proud about what you guys can do. Unless the is a step by step tutorial, I doubt I dare to do anything to the phone. Butterfly is not yet launch in Malaysia and doubt anyone has a clue how to deal with this and remain helplessly stupid.

Anyone signing in from China that I can call for help?
