The recently released HTC Sensation, dubbed as a ‘multimedia superphone’, is probably the biggest iPhone competitor on the market right now, with impressive specs which include a 4.3-inch qHD display and dual core processor. Running Google’s latest version of Android with HTC Sense 3.0, it’s certainly a tempting choice for many people not wishing to buy an iOS device at the moment. We’ve been very interested to see how it performs ever since we first heard about the HTC Sensation announcement. But how does it stack up against other Android phones available to buy, including our old favourite the HTC Desire? Let’s find out!
HTC has gone all out on the Sensation to make it look absolutely perfect. Whereas most phones with large screens feel unnaturally big in your hand, HTC has done a great job of making the device feel sturdy yet comfortable to hold. The unibody exterior is under 5 inches tall and less than half an inch thin, with capacitive buttons placed underneath the gorgeous, glass contoured display.
Everything inside the Sensation is powered by the 1.2GHz dual core processor, and this is coupled with 768MB of RAM making it one of the fastest available phones on the market at the time of writing.
