The Apple iPhone is a revolutionary phone, changing the mobile phone market incredibly. Now other companies want in on the smartphone market, one company making headways is HTC and they have now released one of the first 3D phones, the HTC Evo 3D. So which mobile phone is better? The iPhone 4 or the HTC Evo 3D?

In terms of processors the Evo 3D is massively ahead of the iPhone 4. The HTC Evo 3D is one of few phones to have a dual core processor running speeds of 1.2GHz, giving the Evo a far superior possible intensive performance. In other words the Evo 3D, on paper, will deal with intensive applications better and is better at coping with multitasking. The iPhone 4 has just a single core 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 processor, a processors designed just for the Apple iPhone 4, allowing it to also cope with multitasking well. One of the possible updates to the iPhone 5 will be a new dual core processor so watch out for that.

When it comes RAM the Evo 3D has twice as much as the iPhone. The HTC has 1GB RAM and the iPhone 512MB RAM. Loads of RAM is not critical in smartphones but the EVO 3D needs the RAM to be able to handle the 3D display and camera.

When it comes to internal storage the iPhone beats the Evo with 16GB or 32GB to the Evo’s 1GB internal storage. However the HTC Evo 3D can expand its storage using a microSD card upto an extra 32GB. The iPhone does not have the capability to expand its storage at all.

These days everyone wants a nice super bright screen on their phone, something both phones offer extremely well. With the HD retina display the iPhone 4 has a 3.5 inch screen with a resolution of 640 x 960 pixels, one of the highest currently on the smartphone market. The HTC Evo 3D has a 3D screen of 4.3 inches in size, however its resolution is slightly lower at 540 x 960 pixels.

Both the smartphones have 5 mega pixel back facing camera, as well as lower quality front facing cameras. The iPhone 4 can record in 720p, not full HD but still really clear recording. The Evo 3D can record in upto 1080p but the 3D recording can record only in 720p. The 3D recording is something only a few phones currently offer.

The iPhone weighs 137g as opposed to the Evo 3D which weighs a hefty 170g. In terms of size the iPhone is much smaller and almost 3mm thinner than the HTC Evo 3D.

The iPhone 4 has 1420mAh battery which can last up to 300 hours on standby. The HTC Evo 3D features a more powerful battery, 1730mAh, which can last up to 420 hours on standby.

One of the major differences between these phones is their operating sytsem, the iPhone 4 uses Apple’s extremely friendly iOS sytsem and the Evo 3D uses Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) wit the HTC Sense user interface. Both are incredibly easy to use and make great use of the phones touch screens, however with iOS comes the massive Apple App store which is a head above the Android marketplace. The Android Marketplace does however contain more free apps than the Apple App store.

So when it comes to hardware the HTC Evo 3D blows the Apple iPhone 4 out of the water but in terms of software the iPhone just pips the Evo 3D due to the massive Apple App store.

HTC make top notch smartphones and currently the two most popular seem to be the HTC Sensation and HTC Evo 3D. On paper both phones are very well armed and have similar features. So which one is the best mobile phone in real life? The HTC Sensation or the similar HTC Evo 3D?

Both phones have 4.3inch LCD screens. The Evo 3D obviously has the 3D LCD screen with a pixel resolution of 540 x 960 and the Sensation has an LCD screen with the same resolution of 540 x 960. Both phones feature touch screens which are very responsive and use heat sensors to detect your finger.

In terms of storage both phones feature an internal storage of 1GB. Both the Sensation and Evo 3D can, however, take a microSD card up to 32GB to expand on the internal storage.

The HTC Evo 3D beats the HTC Sensation when it comes to memory, commonly know as RAM. The more RAM the quicker the smartphone can open applications and run more applications simultaneously.  The Evo 3D has 1GB of RAM whilst the HTC Sensation has only 768MB of RAM.

Both phones are future-proof in terms of the CPU, computer processing unit, and feature dual core processors. This is a new thing when it comes to smartphones with only the Samsung Galaxy S 2 being the the other phone currently with a dual core processor. Both mobiles have a 1.2GHz dual core processor allowing for extremely quick loading times and processing power.

In 2011 there is now a lot of consideration to do with the camera within a smartphone. Both phones feature front facing and back facing cameras.The HTC Sensation probably beats the Evo 3D when it comes to the cameras, the latter has a 5 mega pixel back facing camera and the Sensation has an impressive 8 mega pixel back facing camera. The Evo can record in 3D however, but only up to 720P. The Sensation can record in up to 1080P, the highest quality possible currently.

The weight of a phone is incredibly important when buying it. The two handsets have very similar dimensions but the Sensation is much lighter at 148g compared to the heavy 170g of the Evo 3D. This increase in weight is most likely due to the 3D features that the HTC Evo has and slightly more powerful battery. Which leads me to the two batteries, the Evo 3D has a 1720mAH battery which can last up to 355 hours on standby. The HTC Sensation’s 1520mAh battery is slightly more efficient and can last up to 525 hours on standby.

Being HTC phones they both use the Android operating system and the incredibly easy to use HTC Sense user interface.
