The two latest smartphones from Samsung and HTC go head to head in a Samsung Galaxy S2 v HTC Sensation comparison!

Both the phones are the first batch of smartphones to contain a dual processor, both running at 1.2GHz there isn’t a great deal of difference between the two phones when it comes to processing power. The HTC Sensation has only 768MB of RAM, compared to 1GB of RAM in the Samsung Galaxy S2, this allows the Samsung Galaxy S 2 to gain slightly faster loading times and can deal with lots of data at once more efficiently than the HTC Sensation.

The Samsung Galaxy S2 has a large 16GB or 32GB internal memory, which is massive compared to the HTC Sensation’s 1GB. You can expand the storage space in the Sensation using a microSD card upto 32GB.

A department where the HTC Sensation beats the Samsung Galaxy S2 is with screen resolution. Despite using the Super AMOLED Plus technology, the Samsung has a slightly lower screen resolution of 480×800 pixels compared to 540×960 pixels in the HTC. The Sensation also has dual LED flash, one more than the Galaxy S2. The HTC’s screen of 4.3″ is only slightly bigger than the Samsung’s of 4.27″. Both provide a very good screen size allowing for easy navigation. The Sensation features 2 cameras, a 8MP back facing one and a 1.2MP front facing one for video calling. The Samsung also has 2 cameras, the front which is also 8MP but the front facing camera is slightly better at 2MP, pipping the HTC Sensation when it comes to the cameras.

The HTC Sensation weighs a heavy 148g compared to just 116g for the Samsung Galaxy S2. The Galaxy S 2 is also an incredible 2.8mm thinner than the HTC. The Samsung phone is just 8.49mm thin, the HTC a bulky 11.3mm.

All in all both phones are really good, high quality phones but the Samsung Galaxy S2 probably just pips the HTC Sensation. Main reason is due to the weight and size, also the better front facing camera which is very useful for video calling. The HTC Sensation isn’t of the thin and light category of smartphones but still lies comfortable in the hand.
