C.F.J., 22 May 2011hey i need help deciding if i shud get this or SGII, plz help me decideGalaxy S2 for 100% if you are me wanting the phone being more than phone pick Atrix from motorola
My friend has had the Sensation since the Vodafone release last week. I have had the Samsung Galaxy SII for about a month now, and have been able to compare phones. I can say I can provide a fairly impartial view as my last 2 phones have been HTCS, the Desire and Desire HD, both of which I loved. I also briefly had an Iphone4, but the less said about that the better. Ok the Sensation looks very similar to the rest of the HTC brand, but feels nice in the hand, and feels like a premium phone. It is also fairly light, and doesnt creak, umlike my HTC Desire HD. It feels like a more premium phone than my Samsung, but the SII is lighter and thinner, and I think looks better, but thats just my own opinion. Ok down to how they perform,well the HTCs UI is great as always, but a tad gimmicky, and I prefer the Samsungs simple interface, and particularly the Kies and active application killer. They are both lightning quick,so nothing in that, although on a few tests the SII was slightly faster when browsing the net.The screens are both great, but again I prefer the SII,as its slightly more vibrant, with better viewing angles.The camera on the SII is definitely better than the HTCS, it is much sharper in terms of still photos, although I haven't been able to try out the video.
On the speed tests, have benchmarked both, and the SII again seems to be way ahead. I know people have said that HTC may improve this, but the Samsung was fast straight out of the box. I think the RAM and perhaps the different processor may just give the SII the edge. My SII has also been glitch free, it hasn't missed a beat since I bought it, the same can't be said for my friends HTC, its crashed a few times in only a few days, so I think it will require an update.
Finally my main problem with all of my HTCs was the battery life. The Samsung is a big improvement over my Desire HD, and would be similar to my Iphone4. Its hard to tell what the Sensation will be like,as its so new,but it did seem to use the juice a bit faster than the SII, but that may improve in time.
Overall, both phones are great, but I feel the SII just has it, but you won't be dissappointed by either phone, and they certainly knock the crown off the Iphone 4 as the best phone on the market.
Supreme_Yellow, 22 May 2011The biggest minuses with this phone: BATTERY (only about 1-2 days till next recharge), INTERNA... moreYour getting 2 days battery out of it - thats an industry leader for any smart phone out there. Can you confirm it is 2 days?
i have some question about it!
1. is it true that can't play back recorded video before restarting phone????? such as jarops says???? :( is there otherone faced this problem??
2. i see this phone is available in Turkey in htc.com/tr who can tell me the price of this in Turkey???
Im waiting for this phone in UK but on other carriers instead of Vodafone. Only thing that worries me about HTC is that making a good phone ain't their problem. Making a decent battery always seems to be their downfall hence why you hardly find them talking about it too much! oh and that turning off phone to watch video just seems so CRAP its unbelievable!!! lol
hey guys. can any of you tell me what is the hd video recording format of this phone and how's the quality of the video recording compared to SE Xperia Arc & Samsung Galaxy S2 & LG Optimus 2X. And another question. when is this phone gonna be available unlocked and unsubsidized worldwide. Please anyone with reliable experience reply to my questions Because i'm too curious about this phone. So please.

bababarghi, 22 May 2011can this model play 1080p movies smoothly and without choppy with every format such as wmv, mk... moreIt would be much smarter to play 720p videos because it's closer to the actual screen resolution. However, it's not like your going to see "High Definition" on a 4.3 inch screen anyways...
i got the phone with vodafone uk,i've been testing it for 3 days.i can say it's a pretty good phone specialy the sense.but it's got also a lot of faults,the main one is when you capture a video you cannot play it back right away you have to switch off the phone and switch on back to be able to see it.very weird fault.and also when you try to watch the video just after the capture,the games icons on the menu become the same as the market icon,it's very weird.the phone needs already updates i think.my partner got the samsung galaxy s2,which is much much better than the htc sorry.
The biggest minuses with this phone: BATTERY (only about 1-2 days till next recharge), INTERNAL MEMORY is too smal (Yeah, i know we will get 8gb card with the phone, but internal memory is much more faster than microsd cards), ENCRYPTED BOOT (it prevents from hacking in to the phone (rooting) to extend battery life, add more features, upgrade to latest android releases, when there are no official updates. Rooting was one of the reasons, why HTC got so popular). Anyway, I think i will get this :)
