How Does the Dual Core HTC Sensation 4G Stack Up?

It’s not enough just to have a 1GHz processor anymore. The new name of the smartphone game is dual core processing, so how does the recently revealed HTC Sensation 4G hold up against the other dual core competitors?

Engadget has put together a handy chart that pits the Sensation, spec for spec, against other Android phones that are very muc like it. Among the comparison are the Samsung Galaxy S II, Motorola Atrix 4G, LG Optimus 2X, HTC Evo 3D, Motorola Droid Bionic, and LG Optimus 3D.

Aside from sharing the highest resolution screen with the Evo 3D, Droid Bionic, and Atrix 4G, the Sensation doesn’t really have a lot that sets it apart. It’s not the thinnest or the lightest (that goes to the Galaxy S II), it doesn’t have the most RAM, it doesn’t have the most storage, and it doesn’t have the fastest 4G speeds.

On the bright side, it comes with Gingerbread 2.3 out of the box, an 8MP camera, and an extra speedy 1.2GHz Qualcomm MSM8260 processor. Of course, specs are just specs, so we’ll have to see how it really stacks up against the rest in the real world. After all, the mere 800MHz (single core) processor in the Desire Z was able to outperform many of its 1GHz brethren.

  1. The sensation is not that fast. The ringer volume is so low its hard to hear. The speaker is also low, real LOW, its hard for me to believe htc made this phone. Now I kinda like how you can, set up the lock screen, the picture one is real, cool! To me its kinda like htc tried to hard…. Lol but NOT hard enuff. Like the battery is poor. It, takes forever the charge. The keyboard is screwed, now why they changed? Who knows. I know its boring to look@. I think they were thinking htc, sense then wnt vanilla

  2. What you / they’re not considering is the god-awful samsung android ui abomination / kies / lack of keeping up to date with android updates – yes – technically the sensation might be ever so slightly inferior but as an overall package it pounds the samsung into a bloody mess and steals its lunch money (esp as most of these will be sold on a 24month contract – I’d bet my mouldy granny than the htc owners are a happier bunch in 12 months than the samsung victims)

    Further they’re missing key criteria (standby / talk time on the battery for one) – the stack up of that would be interesting to see.
