iPhone 5? by the time it will come out, android will be big time infront of iPhone regarding sales and amount of apps.... iPhone will have some catching up to do or just simply drown in android apps and profit... This is just my own oppinion which i think will happen
Anonymous, 13 May 2011iPhone 5 is likely to be delayed until 2012 due to earthquake in Japan. So this June, HTC/Sams... moreAnd that is because....? I think the correct word to use would be "not planned to be released until 2012". And then it will be 'delayed' till July 2012, and then the white iphone 5 will come out in 2014.
P.S What does Japan have to do with it?
Yesterday I went to shop to buy SGS2. but I came back without buying the phone...It looks sooo cheap phone bcz of its rear cover...and Samsung OS UI looks sooooo crap....the new HTC Sence 3.0 looks prettty gud...Thusand times better than any other phones UI...HTC Sence is best....
iPhone 5 is likely to be delayed until 2012 due to earthquake in Japan. So this June, HTC/Samsung/LG/Sony Ericsson/Motorola/Nokia can all breath a sigh of relief.
better not to launch it if it is at end of june!
Price is not there any longer nor is the release date.
This easily beats anything Samsung can put out there. Why? HTC is far far ahead of Samsung in terms of build quality, stability, and UI. Even for those who may argue that the SGS2 looks better on paper, that means nothing for real-world performance. Samsung phones are (for the most part) baggy, unstable, cheap-feeling, and poorly designed and programmed. As such, the Sensation easily wins here.
samy , 12 May 2011you are spot on mate! I agree, 1MB storage is a joke for this phone, you need to have at leas... morehi. But apps should go directly into SD card, so hows internal memory got so importance..
please clearify my confusion. I read that 1 GB internal memory would b less for storing apps. But , downloaded apps should go directly into SD card... So hows internal memory so important.. Thanks in advance..
This is better than that, mine is bigger than yours..oh so boring! We all have our personal preferences and can make choices based on that. I have the HTC on pre-order from Vodafone, own an IP4 but wanted another Android phone in the meantime, yes I can afford it, so after much deliberation that back up phone is the silver Xperia Arc and it will give me my android fix until I get to play with HTC Sensation. Oh by the way, Xperia Arc in Misty Silver from Simply Electronics....sexy as hell....damn!!!
Seriously thought about SGS2 but the ugly OS and cheap feel rear cover just screamed....NO! So there, my choice and preference is HTC Sensation! Roll on 19 May!
Respect my choice, your are entitled to yours, whatever it may turn out to be!
To be fair the GS2 is better bigger battery, better screen, more memory, larger storage and with a cortex A9 dual core is faster clock for clock compared to the dual core A8. Think AMD Phenom vs Intel core processors. Clock speeds mean little now. It's performance per clock. Still HTC looks better and has hardware flash player support, dual flash and better build quality.
dave, 12 May 2011SGS 2 beats HTC handsdown. SGS2 has a better screen with Super Amoled, more ram 1GB , more int... moreBut sadly, looks just like another fat iPhone. Round edges. CHECK. BLACK. CHECK. Yawnnn....I want a phone that I can pullout and not look like a Steve Jobs fanboy. (and that also goes to HTC handsets as well).

Maybe in terms... moreI am so glad you wrote that post,,over in sgs 2 forum its just the usual crowd having a go at anything to cause agro.My mother has a Doro phone for herself for telephone calls and great for her aging eyesight.Her choice of phone for her needs.
Just by looking at the advertisement its play.com and they do have high initial price,in fact so does every new hot smartfone.It will be good later on as gsmarena go head to head with all these new dual core efforts from each manufacturer.Also HTC sense has a big following with lots of fans.I myself put launcher pro on,my choice because i am used to it.
End of June is too late. Be warned HTC, by then Sammy may cook SGS3 in their labs.
firstly learn how to write and post a comment. Its 1gb not (1mb) and 16gb not (16mb)....
as the for the rest, this phone is highly anticipated and will be overall the htc crown jewel this year, unless they decide to release a gsm version of the htc evo 3d....
having been using the samsungs gs2 i can honestly say that it is not a phone that warrants a price as high as it does. the ui feels crap, the phone is completley plastic and feels like it will break if you hold it too hard and i'm not a sucker for hardware that basically cannot use itself to its full yet. htc's seem more thought about and more effort put into making a phone thgat not only talks on paper but in day to day use as well.
The "best" is subjective and a matter of opinion to a certain extent. Maybe in terms of numbers the Galaxy S II stands out, but people choose their phone for different reasons. I have the Galaxy S and love it, but have pre-ordered the HTC Sensation.
SGS II and Sensation are evenly priced, and the current flagship of each company. Both have advantages and disadvantages to each other.
What people choose will be down to what they want from their phone.

Anonymous, 12 May 2011so where are the iphone fanboys???
I think you will find it is not just the screen where sa... moreyou are spot on mate!
I agree, 1MB storage is a joke for this phone, you need to have at least 16MB hard to get some of the apps running, that wouldn't work the same speed as SD card
Not a bad phone, I am not really a fan of the HTC phones but this one looks good.
Still rate the samsung galaxy s 2 higher then the Sensation ( no not a fanboy )
