So here we shall find out a little more about both these brilliant products from HTC and Samsung without being partial to one.

Dimensions/Weight: Starting off, you donot want a bulky phone occupying a lot of space in your pocket or your bag etc. In such a case, the HTC Sensation weighs 32 grams more than the Samsung Galaxy S II while also being 2.6mm more thicker than the S II (11.1mm compared to 8.5mm) with almost similar dimensions.

Display: What gives pleasure to your eyes is the display screen of a cell phone. And if it ends up being too glossy or scratchy, then the user will hardly want to look into, thus being a nuisance. However, the HTC Sensation sports a 4.3″ S-LCD capacitive touchscreen while the S II has a 4.3″ Super AMOLED Plus capacitive touchscreen, with the latter having the edge. The HTC Sensation supports HTC Sense v3.0 UI in contrast to TouchWiz UI v4.0 supported by SII while both having great features like Gorilla glass display, Multi-touch input method, Accelerometer sensor for UI auto-rotate, Proximity sensor for auto turn-off and Gyro sensor. The SII is a bit more smooth and clear on its display factor, thanks to its Super-Amoled display.

Storage: The storage factor is an important one when it comes to determine the better smartphone, with memory management duly included. The SII takes the cake when it comes to data storage with an internal 16GB/32GB storage alongwith 1 GB RAM compared to 1GB internal storage with 768MB RAM from the HTC Sensation. However both come along with an external SD card slot, extendable upto 32GB.

OS: A lot of probbable customers  opt for specific phones due to their love for that partiular OS. Here, both the smartphones run on the Android OS v2.3 (Gingerbread) with a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, with the HTC Sensation sporting a Qualcomm processor while the SII coming with an ARM Cortex-A9 processor.

Talk time: The Samsug Galaxy S II betters the HTC Sensation when it comes to talktime. This actually defines how capable a smart phone can stand ON without the need to charge itself. And the Samsung Galaxy SII is amazingly brilliant here. It offers a talktime of 18h and 20mins compared to 6h and 40mins by the HTC Sensation which is  just AWESOME.

Battery: However, Both of them support the best in the battery domain, with both featuring standard Li-Ion batteries with the Samsung SII battery being of 1650mAh, compared to 1520mAh from the HTC Sensation.
Camera: Camera in another important feature to look into smart phones. Nobody wants to carry along a digital camera or a bulky handy cam along with their smartphone. Everybody wants their precious mobile phone to do it for them.And yes, these two smart phones are much alike and donot disappoint. There is hardly any difference in the camera domain as both sport an 8MP auto-focus camera with LED flash along with great features like Geo-tagging, touch-focus, image stabilization, face and smile detection and instant capture. You can also enjoy the benefits of video-calling on both these smart phones with a secondary camera of 2MP.

Connectivity: Being connected to the rest of the world via the Internet etc does hold significant importance in this busy life style of mobile users. Being on Facebook, Twitter all along and staying connected actually shows how tech savy one is. Here both the HTC Sensation and the Samsung Galaxy S II support GPRS, EDGE, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth but the S II has got a better 3G top speed of 21Mbps compared to 14.4Mbps by HTC Sensation.
