HTC Sensation is really a powerful phone with Dual Core processor and massive touchscreen, where as HTC Desire S is not approximately comparable with sensation. because HTC Sensation is sported with 8 MP camera where Desire S is just 5 MP camera. The two features which matters are processor & Screen size. In these two factors HTC Sensation is the clear winner. Rest all the features of both the phones are almost similar, it would be best to go with HTC Sensation, if you would like to enjoy more power, photography and interface.

    An awsome handset indeed. The HTC Sensation is more powerful than the iphone 4 and with a screen thats n early an inch bigger. This handset is future proof for at least a year. Found loads of realy useful info here

  5. The only issue I have with the HTC Sensation is its size against HTC Desire S. That’s why I prefer to stay with my Desire for now. Otherwise you did very good job.
