Samsung Galaxy S2 vs. HTC Sensation

Samsung Galaxy S2 vs. HTC Sensation

So now that two of the top dual-core smartphones are coming to the Philippines this June, we ask you to pick your favorite with the suggested retail price in mind. Let’s pit the HTC Sensation vs. the Samsung Galaxy S2 i9100 after the jump.


Both handsets are great and are considered to be on top of the ranks of smartphones. Here’s our tabular comparison between the two smartphones.

The clincher here really is the suggested retail price of the two — the HTC Sensation is Php3k more expensive than the Samsung Galaxy S2. However, the Php29,990 price of the SGS2 is probably subsidized by Globe which has exclusive distribution of the handset for the first month or so.

    Parang obvious naman na the SGS2 has the upperhand in almost if not all specs. Kahit cguro magkapareho sila ng presyo (if SGS2 will be offered off-contract) panalo pa rin ang SGS2.

    sgs2 ftw!

    in terms of specs, its the SGS2
    but in terms of quality it the HTCS

    • mikey says:

      quality? since when was qlcd>super amoled+? and since when was 1 gb ram > 768 mb?

    • mikey says:

      1 gb ram < 768 mb?* :)

    • Denz D. Naitawei says:

      and since when was 1gb of internal memory > 16gb of internal memory? Plus the number and speed capacity of the 3G radios together with the price, SGS2 is full of WIN!

    • jineveeholic says:

      and Since! SGS2 > HTC Sensation

    • mikey says:

      heh i wanted to go on and on but i figured the chart would do the talking

    • markT says:

      SGSII has reported some screen issues – yellow spots found on the left side of the screen(discussed on XDA threads), then poor performance in direct sunlight(as mentioned by a user-review from engadget)

    • markT says:

      SGSII got screen issues reported and discussed online.
      – yellow tint found on the left part of the screen
      – poor performance under direct sunlight(mentioned by a user-review from engadget)

    • Denz D. Naitawei says:

      While HTC Sensation’s screen isn’t also doing well in the display department on different reviews, despite having Super LCD (540 x 960) PLUS the wi-fi death-grip issue…

      Phones have issues in one way or another.

    • mikey says:

      that issue is not present in all phones. i do not have the yellow tint issue, and under direct sunlight adjusting the brightness fixes it easily. the only “issue” i could think of is that the battery drains really fast (compared to the iphone 4).

    • karl says:

      We’ve seen some very good S-LCD units from HTC and while the one on the Sensation is okay, it has its issues.

      -from GSMArena

      *they’re putting substandard LCS Display in their Flagship??? That’s so sad!

    • john says:

      true, in terms of quality, HTC parin.

      parang china phone ang SGS2 pag hinawakan mo.

      pero syempre, laos ang sensation in terms of specs.

      FYI, mas sirain ang samsung phones versus…. actually, versus sa lahat ng brand.

    • Denz D Naitawei says:

      HTC ang China phone dahil gawa sa China mismo (Taiwan). LOL! Korean ang Samsung.

      “FYI, mas sirain ang samsung phones versus…. actually, versus sa lahat ng brand.”
      Source? Madaling sabihin yan e. Mas madaling masira sya kesa sa Cherry? Sa E-Touch? Madali din sabihin na sirain ang HTC.

    • mine says:

      Yup,totoo yun. pangit quality ng samsung brand sa phones at appliances nila. Madali lang talaga masira. Yan ung experience ko,thrice na ata ako nagkasamsung then after ilang months magsisismula na yan magloko. Kahit friends ko ganun din.. May friend din ako who is working sa appliance center yun din sinabi. Maraming reklamo sa samsung.

      Magaling lang talaga sila sa marketing strategy at mga specs pero ung quality/durability ng products nila parang minadali.

    • Rufus says:

      Yup. Totoo ding sirain yung htc. Simula pa nun gumagamit ako ng windows 6.5 ng htc hanggang sa mgabagong line-up ng android at windows 7 phone. Sabi nga rin ng kabarkada ko. Pati labandera namin. Pati yung repair shop sa kanto namin, marami daw nag-papaayos ng htc dahil sirain daw ito. Pati nga yung tindera sa sari sari store malapit sa amin nagsasabi na marami daw nagrereklamo at bumabalik ng htc phones.

      Magaling lang talaga sa marketing ang htc na pinapataas pa presyo para sabihing class ang produkto nila pero quality/durability ng products nila parang minadali.

    • William T says:

      qlcd can be better than Super AMOLED + because it has more pixels (35% more), which could result in sharper texts and better picture quality. But I haven’t seen the Sensation screen so I really can’t compare.

      I have seen the Samsung i9003 (Clear LCD), and the Super AMOLED plus (i9100), and the Super AMOLED + color is more saturated and thus looks more colorful, the pictures (I am looking at a clouds Live wallpaper) seems more 3D looking, but in terms of whiteness, the ClearLCD seems whiter.

    • ry says:

      quality? those are specs you are talking–doesn’t mean na if you have good specs it’s quality. Let’s discuss my point. even though they have 8 megapixels cam–HTC’s hardware is inferior you can compare pics taken from both cam–ewan ko ba kung saan sinosource ng HTC yung sa kanila. Audio–basag ang tunog ng calls sa HTC para kang nasa lata. SG2 is clearly the winner

  6. ran says:

    the SGS2 should be clocked at 1.4Ghz.

    i dont see how the HTCS wins in quality. it actually performs poorer than the LG Optimus 2x. and theres the death grip issue.

    • mikey says:

      the sgs2 can be overclocked to 2.0 ghz, i have mine oc’d to a stable 1.5ghz, but really 1.2ghz is more than enough

    • William T says:

      In terms of specs, SII wins by a mile, but the Sensation feels more solid when held, the steel back is much more classy than the plastic back of the S2, just remove the backcover, and you could see how Samsung achieve the thinness, the backcover is paper thin and bends(!) hopefully the plastic is new generation plastic that won’t crack.

      The death grip issue is a bummer on the Sensation, but it might not be as much an issue with as Asians, with our smaller hands, which should not cover the upper part of the unit where the antennae (or whatever it’s called) are…

  8. ran says:

    woops. my bad. was thinking of the SGS Plus

  9. Ogre says:

    I thought sensation has sense 3.0?

  10. so far the best talaga ang Samsung Galaxy S II among other dual core!

  11. lou says:

    htc sensation… meron xang originlity in terms of design. unlike s samsung slightly pareho cla ng iphone4. bout the specs i dont care as long n mkakareceive ako ng msgs at calls ok n un. terms of net connectioon i dont care too… madami nmn wifi spots n mabilis atmeron din mabagal lalo n pag madami nkikishare depende din sa network…nsa pinas tayo kya wag n umarte kung ano ibinbigay ng network ng conection in terms of camera as long as ngbibigay ng descent pics ok n…. if like mo ung maganda shots edi bumili k n lng ng slr.. wag mo n sayangin pagbili mo n smartfone…

    • Denz D. Naitawei says:

      It’s funny how your post seem to indicate that you’d settle for anything mediocre and “wag na umarte”, pero ok lang sa yo ang mas mahal. E bakit ka pa bibili ng sensation kung meron naman dyang cheap na mga nokia or samsung phones that can do text, calls and wi-fi via internet very well, tapos bili ka nga ng slr. Wag ka ng bumili ng sensation dahil mas mahal sya. Sabi mo nga “wag mo n sayangin pagbili mo n smartfone…”

    • yogz says:

      I think someone doesn’t get the idea/purpose of having a smartphone.

    • kuwan says:

      the most nonsensical post i have ever read.
      we all have different needs.

      and i dont see the hidden “contentment” idea on your post.

      OTT: SGSII kahit na mag ka dual core pa next month! the specs are already a milestone in the smartphone technology!

    • kuwan says:

      *quad core

    • karl says:

      .HTC’s phones have the same design!!!

    • Sensu Nai Cha says:

      read between the lines bro. there are differences so it means they don’t have the same design.

    • lou says:

      “we ask you to pick your favorite with the suggested retail price in mind” thats the question..

      @denz- tama k idd settle for for my statemen “if like mo ung maganda shots edi bumili k n lng ng slr.. wag mo n sayangin pagbili mo n smartfone”. tama nmn db??? may mga tao dyan n kya bumibili ng smartfone dahil sa megapixel n binibigay ng cam,id say slr n lng bilhin db?

      @kwan i agree iba iba needs natin… again refer to the question stated above by mr abe.

      @karl yes tama k n htc halos same lng mga designs ng mga devices nila… ang sinsabi ko is between samsunggx2 and htc sensation,mas mukhang ip4 ung samsung

      @yogs do you? … n try mo n bang gamitin at ikumpara gamit itong mga devices n ito sa ibang bansa>? mukhang hindi p. all this smartfones are nonsense without wi-fi,3g,4g,lan etc.connection kya im saying with the kind of network conection sa pilipinas hindi mo mama maximize ang lahat ng features n inoofer ng bwat smartfone

      again cnsagot ko lng ung tanong “we ask you to pick your favorite with the suggested retail price in mind”

      btw ip4 and htc hd user here

    • yuga says:

      @lou – so far, I’ve tried using my smartphones in Singapore, Malaysia, Germany, South Korea and Japan. Different experience based on varying carriers.

    • lou says:

      i agree with you sir… pag nag rely k tlga sa mga networks para sa connection iba iba makukuha natin

  12. markT says:

    haven’t really decided on what to purchase, will wait for another month or two and read more user-feedback/reviews from pinoy consumers and for the price to drop.

    SGSII wins in terms of performance and specs, however can you really tell the difference between the two with our network’s current status? i’m speaking of mobile internet here

    but i’m more inclined to buying sensation simply because of its premium build design & quality and its sense UI.

    • Raffy says:

      I don’t get it how you’d justify buying a device based on the current status of the network providers here in this country. Sabi nga nila, di pa ganun kalawak ang hspa+ networks dito kaya kung gayun e di, wala kang pipiliin sa dalawa. I don’t limit my purchases based on current standards. Kung kaya nya mas mabilis at a lesser price why not? Atleast pag gumanda ang network, may nagpatayo ng celsite sa tabi namin, o nag-offer ng higher speed magagamit ko sya.

      Based on engadgrt’s review, the Sensation wins out on resolution but loses out by a big margin when it comes to quality and the sheer feeling of luxury that the SGS2 provides. SGS2 offers more brilliant display, is more responsive and offers snappier performance than Sensation.

  13. Dallas Mavericks says:

    suckers lang daw bumibili ng SGS2 e hehe (see post on another article) peace tayong lahat, phone lang yan

    • john says:

      medyo totoo naman.. haha, tignan mo ang sony TV kahit di hamak na mas maganda ang Samsung,pero Sony TV parin ang the best.. why? quality kasi. pang matagalan.

      anyway, unlike sa TV, OK lang naman yan.. since wala pang 1 year, laos na agad yan.. SGS3 na ang USO. LOL

    • Denz D Naitawei says:

      “anyway, unlike sa TV, OK lang naman yan.. since wala pang 1 year, laos na agad yan.. SGS3 na ang USO. LOL”

      Kung ganun ang logic natin lahat, di wag na tayong bumili ng bagong celphone, dahil pag bumili ka ng SGS3 malalaos na rin yan dahil may SGS4 na naman. O di kaya mag iPhone ka para saktong isang taon o lagpas pa bago mag-update.

    • trixnix says:

      natawa ako dito! haha! wag na gumastos! haha! m

    • LilBoyBlue says:

      i beg to disagree sa laos part. many fail to see that the galaxy line is Samsung’s flagship line, meaning it’s their line that would compete with the iPhone line. And like the iPhone line, kahit may iPhone 4 na, ang iPhone 3gs hindi parin dinedepreciate ng Apple ang value niya (i.e. iOS 5 will be compatible with it)

      And this kind of treatment to the galaxy line can also be anticipated (see: gingerbread update of Galaxy S). Oo, mabilis maglabas ng new and improved gadgets ang Samsung and other phone developers pero hindi basta basta pababayaan ang phones under the FLAGSHIP line of each company (Optimus line, Galaxy Line, Xperia line, etc)

  14. John says:

    anyway, kahit sinasabi kong di maganda ang quality ng samsung, ILL STILL GO FOR SGS2.

    bulok kasi ang processor sa HTC Sensation, plus di hamak na mas smooth ang SGS2.

    di ako bibili ng mga yan.. hahaaha, di ko trip ang android… sa tablet ko sya gusto.

    actually, im waiting for the galaxy tab 8.9 =)

  15. SGS 2 Price and specs FTW.

  16. Matt says:

    It’s a no-brainer. SGS2 gets my vote.

    HTC screen doesn’t do better than Super AMOLED, lalo na’t Super AMOLED Plus na ang SGS2.

    Whatever the other guys reasons are (yellow tint or whatever), specs-wise, SGS2 wins.

    Specs – SGS2
    Price – SGS2

    So, what’s the upper hand of HTC? Sense? Really?

  17. soduhwhatever says:

    I don’t give a @#%&: whatever you all say. I want Samsung galaxy s2 and I’m effin getting myself one. Crap can’t wait

  18. Lrae says:

    SGSII still for the win! internal memory plang eh grabe na lamang 16gb against 1 gb? kahit na sabhn na pwede micro sd laki pa rin ng gap

  19. Mikhail says:

    Drooling all over again for SGS2. Christmas seems so far away oh nexus three oh nexus three.

  20. Fboi says:

    Blah.. ip4 for the win..! Htc non sense n samsung intergalactica andomeda. Pagbinenta mo ng second hand no value na.. Unlike ip4 high appraisal in demand pa.. More fun apps pa..

    • trixnix says:

      haha! natawa ako dito. kelangan ipromote ang ip4?
      kids ka ata e. pero infairness naman talaga sa ip4 ok namna cya bow down. but nakakasawa din =)

      alam mo naman ang pinoy kung saan uso dun tayo haha!

    • marc ray says:

      Ip4 is for dumb people.wala ka ng ibang magawa pare pareho kyo ng homescreen pra kayong mga alagad ni kalantiaw.kung ano sabihin sainyo un ang gagawin nyo…live ur life don’t allow anyone to dictate u on what to do with ur phone.

    • quzaqi says:

      iphones are for idiots who want to look smart. iphone have lots of applications that are useful to their “not-so-smart” or not smart at all owners. if you come to think of it, most of apple apps are really not for smart people. they just have the semblance of “smartness” so to speak. i should know, i got one as a gift but soon realized i rarely use it. is use more instead my ? (i dont want to promote a brand – after all im no fan of any brand) but in fairness to iphone fans, an iphone kinda makes you look cool. it gets you the “wow!-he-has-an-iphone” look from others. so i guess iphones are coolphones or displayphones and it gives a different kind of satisfaction. but smart? oh, let’s leave it at cool. i wished i got instead an ebook reader (from sony, if possible) coz that would have made me a lot happier.

  21. j0j0 says:

    to those who want to buy SAMSUNG phone, its a CRAP… try to go to their demo stores or Globe first to have some some grip, and come back here and say…

    its PLASTIC and you can totally feel it.

    • Mike says:

      Samsung is now forefront of technology. they are 5 years ahead of htc, apple & the rest. Their quadcore smartphone is soon to be released.

    • John says:

      SO what? kung bukas sira na.. aanuhin mo yan. LOL

    • Denz D Naitawei says:

      Same is through pag bukas sira na rin HTC phone mo? Ano nga ba dapat mong gawin? E di dalhin sa service center. May warranty naman lahat ng yan so bakit di ipaayos? At kung talagang madali o parati kang nasisiraan ng smartphone, isa lang ibig sabihin nyan…

    • trixnix says:

      kaya nga magaan at manipis eh kasi plastic. hehe!

  22. I’d go with the Sensation as the processor’s better (READ: BETTER and NOT FASTER although the faster part is debatable once tweaks are applied to take advantage of it’s highly customized architecture) not to mention the build quality associated with HTC phones. :)

    • Mikhail says:

      So you’ll be trying your kernel with this phone? Have you found a successor to N1, by the way?

    • Not so sure yet. It’s a bit pricey to consider and I’m still not dissatisfied with my N1 as of yet. I’m also considering going for a tablet instead of a phone since my N1 is still competitive with the newer phones IMO. :p

  23. Christian says:

    I own an HTC Desire HD and I really love everything about it. And when I saw the HTC Sensation, I think I’ll have to upgrade my phone now. I’m a very big fan of HTC phones. The price is quite high but every peso you spend for it is worth it! :)

  24. same lang ito na overpriced. you are better off buying the galaxy s or galaxy tab

  25. daniel says:

    ang alam ko basta HTC, mahal at medyo rugged. feeling ko ang ganda ng HTC eh. pero SGS2 ako… mas manipis kaya! haha mahilig ako sa manipis.

  26. trixnix says:

    mabagal ang os updates ng samsung.. compare sa htc.

    pero mabagal talaga ang android. full of lags.

    kelangan pa ipa dual core para smooth? pero ndi pa din katanggap ung lag since dual core na sila pareho. tingin ko OS lang din yan e. =) same pa din naman ng pagagamitan calls/txt/video calls/ apps/games. w

    • John says:

      actually, di pa nga sya ganung ka smooth kahit dual core.. bulok talaga ang android pag dating sa bagay na yan..

      Yung ASUS wp7 Developer phone na ginamit sa pag introduce ng MANGO eh 800mhz single core lang, pero di hamak na mas mabilis sya sa lahat ng klaseng android phone. LOL

    • trixnix says:

      yup tama ka sir John. lag pa din kahit dual core na.. hehe.. i have 3 devices galaxy s i9000, ip4 and a HTC Mozart (wp7).

      really? ung developers phone na ASUS 800mhz lang yun? sh*t but its silky smooth daig pa ang 1ghz.

      wp7 two thumbs up. start from scratch. =)

    • paolo says:

      Funny some people here said that the Android OS lags and base it sa samsung sgs.
      FYI lng po sa mga hindi nakakaalam TouchWiz UI (SGS’ UI) has bugs that conflicts with the Android 2.2 Froyo pero once you upgrade to 2.3 Gingerbread silky smooth na ulet or if you want, you can download the Launcher Pro app on 2.2 and still be silky smooth w/o updating.

    • Seanie says:

      Just for informational purposes, the reason why transitions and animations on Android phones are choppier than WP7 and on the iPhone is largely because of hardware acceleration. Because of the fragmentation of the Android platform, Google has decided to not include HW acceleration in their software since updates apparently have to be universal. It is rumored that this will be fixed in the Ice Cream Sandwich update.

      The Samsung Galaxy S2 is smoother than other android phones because Samsung has enabled HWA in their kernel along with touchwiz. And as far as I know, its only Samsung that has done this for Gingerbread. (Honeycomb has HWA built-in)

    • trixnix says:

      amen to this.

    • iceman says:

      wp7 is crap compare to android. kya lng mabilis ang wp7 kc hindi wala sya multitask. android phones multi task

    • Creativeyou says:

      Thats what people say if they dont know how to make use of the full potential of their phone. Its just for display purposes at pag mamabayabng just to i got it all. I still hav my SGS 1 two years now and its not just silky smooth its hyper smooth. I got my sgs updated to 2.3.4 and it beats the sh*t out of iP4! U dont hav to be a geek or something to tweek ur phone theres google man! And btw correct me if im wrong talented people use android coz u hav “freedom” which this country doesnt even hav. :)

  27. Kei says:

    i have been using HTC phones the past 4 years (Wizard to Wildfire to Desire Z) and i’m impressed by the quality of the hardware. My cousin is still using my old Wizard; my Wildfire is with my dad; and my Desire Z is still in pristine condition no matter how I abuse the Z-hinge. having said that, I have high expectations for the Sensation’s quality. Samsung feels plasticky to me, as if it can break anytime. and it seems to me that Samsung phones depreciate much faster than HTC’s. I’ll choose Sense over TouchWiz anytime too. Reviews show that Galaxy S II has a slight advantage in performance, but I’ll go for durability and feel. To each his own na lang. :)

  28. razorous says:

    Knowing that SGS2 have 2mp front facing camera, does this mean it can do HD Video calls?

  29. phillip says:

    I don’t know about htc, but samsung phones have battery issues. I know 4 people with different models (one is a galaxy tab) experienced it.
    Worst part is that samsung personnel categorized it as being normal. Ok, since when does having your battery drop to zero after fully recharging it normal?!
    Maybe they’ve improved the battery quality in SGS2, but we really wouldn’t know until we test it ourselves.

    • Denz D Naitawei says:

      If there were any battery issues like what you’ve said (full battery dropping to zero), don’t you think it would be all over the internet right now? Besides, tech sites rate their products from average to above average with all the comprehensive tests including battery performance. May kamalasan ata apat na kilala mo.

    • phillip says:

      judging by your comments, you’re a samsung fanatic. so your opinion doesn’t really matter since you’re biased..

      anyhow, I don’t see the connection of your reply to my post. tech sites only test battery performance not their durability..

      not all of them have the same problem, some are just having their battery drain faster (performance drops) after using them for only a couple of months.

      I’m just merely stating experiences. there’s really no argument in that.

  30. kuwan says:

    ang gusto ko lang naman sa phone eh may full flash support at hindi naglalag sa mga 1080p videos even while zooming in/out straight from the browser..

    iPhone 4 can’t do that.. even the high end HTC’s IIRC..

    SGSII wins..

    • trixnix says:

      yes, tama ka. mabilis ang browser ng sgs2 ftw talaga yan.

    • jojohudyo says:

      have YOU REALLY TRIED USING THESE PHONE BROWSERS FOR THOSE CLAIM? pfft HTC hater.. comment ng comment di pa naman ntry… mga tanga, hahahaha pakaepal., jan kayo sa samsung nyo na mukang cheap… super hahahahaa..

  31. karl says:

    .SGS2 has so many overwhelming reviews from different blogs. I want dis phone!!!

  32. karissa says:

    based on trying both brands in the past years, I’d go for HTC.
    I prefer their “sense” and durability than Samsung.
    I really don’t like the colors of Amoled as I have sensitive eyes that’s why I prefer super LCD over it regardless of how amazing it is as what people says.
    whenever I buy a new phone I take a couple of things into consideration. Like what will I do with it aside from calling and texting.
    I usually use it for music and ebook reading.
    Checking my mails and calendar.
    Yeah, just being the crap as I am.

    • karl says:

      *OLED Display is better for people with sensitive eyes than LCD Displays

      *Only active pixels will emit light in an OLED Display while the backlight in a LCD Display will emit light all throughout

      *Also OLED Display uses less energy than LCD Display making it more suitable for Mobile Devices where battery life is crucial

    • Jared says:

      dude that’s her personal opinion and preference.
      and she’s choosing based on experience. have you had an HTC phone?

    • jojohudyo says:

      mas matipid ang screen kamo na amoled kumpara sa slcd?

      dude… after testing the two phones, then laying them still open–after a full charge cycle at nalowbat., it yielded me these two datas ( using the android battery meter sa 2 phones ) amoled used 89% of batt power, and slcd, only 45%… ano ka ngayon? before ka magcomment based sa written., i real life test mo

    • karl says:

      AMOLED or Active Matrix OLED only activates pixels that are in use unlike LCD displays which use the whole screen no matter which pixels are active.

      *for example, u can save energy by using a black wallpaper than a white one in AMOLED whereas in LCD, changing wallpapers won’t do u any good

      *this is really a no-brainer, LOL!

  33. For sale says:

    Selling brand new factory unlocked Samsung galaxy s2 33500 09173030016

  34. Truth Is says:

    Tech/blog sites who have reviewed both Samsung Galaxy S2 and HTC Sensation have considered the Samsung Galaxy S2 to be the smartphone to beat and is the best among the current available smartphones. Build-wise you can’t just simply dismiss the SGS2 to be poor just because it’s made of plastic (lighter weight, slimmer and less interference with the 3G and wifi radios?). Dapat naman talaga alagaan ang gadget kahit ano pa mang brand yan. It’s selling like hotcakes for a reason. Samsung can’t even cope up with production daw that’s why there were delays on its launching worldwide.

    Why settle for 2nd best when you can get the greatest… at a lower price pa!
    I’d go with Samsung Gakaxy S2!

    kng gusto myo OS na di maglag, try kayo mag-program ng OS from scratch, tapos sabihin nyo sa akin kng madali lng ba gawin ang OS.

    puro kayo reklamo, di pa nga kayo nakabili.

    kng ako tanungin nyo, gusto ko low-end phones, anong silbi ng wifi in phone if walang wifi hotspots sa buong pinas. anong silbi ng wifi kng sa office merong internet, tapus pag-uwi sa bahay, meron din. FACEBOOK lng naman gamit nyo sa WIFI at 3G/4G connection ng phone nyo eh. why not be productive, and have a real work.

    don’t waste your working hours doing FACEBOOK. It won’t give you any promotions. so why buy smartphones, instead use the money to increase your income, do not use the smartphones for other to say that you are one of the elites.

    meron nga SGS2 or Sensation, pero walang load, pangdisplay lng para sabihin mayaman sila pero walang laman ang tyan kasi ang sweldo naubos kababayad sa monthly credit cards bills, para maglaway ang ibang tao pati na mga snatcher at holdaper.

      I agree sa mga sinabi mo.
      pero im planning to buy S2 pag meron na sa market, hindi para i pagmayabang sa iba,. Gift ko lang sa sarili ko. :)

      Seems to me that you’re talking to a specific group of people. Don’t assume that your needs are similar to the needs of others. If you want, state which kinds of people you want to address because some might get offended by your post or think that you’re a narrow minded individual (which of course you are not).
      All I’m saying is that learn who you’re talking to because some will think that you’re line of thinking is stupid. Its a failsafe of sorts.
      I can really see a stark difference between how Filipinos and the rest of the world post in forums and comments.

    • bart says:

      ok, i’m talking about those social climber freaks out there. i did comment that to offend them, for them to come into terms that buying phones for “impression and display” purposes can’t make their stomach full.

      i do admit i love both SGSII and the Sensation, but i’m in no terms to buy that phone, it just don’t fit my needs. i better buy the money for my basic needs.

    • Seanie says:

      And with that, I agree with everything that you’ve said.

    • trixnix says:

      eh paano pag madami sila pang bili ng phones?

      or gadget freak? pero may pang laman naman ng tyan? ah eh.. ibang usapan naman un. so siguro sila may karapatan mang bash ng ibang gadgets kasi kaya nila bumili? come to think of it hindi lahat dito na nagcomments is walang pera. =)

    • karl says:

      *Well, I respect your opinion. But also respect opinions of others.

      *It doesn’t mean that if someone owns an SGS2, mayabang na sya. some people like me just want to have that phone and use its full potential.

      *pag nakabili na ko ng phone na ito, ndi ko sya ipapakalandakan. ano ako tanga? baka ma-snatch pa dba?

      *even low end phones have wifi nowadays. ano bang phone sinasabi mo? ung mga 3310?

    • Jared says:

      “*Well, I respect your opinion. But also respect opinions of others.”
      -HA! you’re one to talk! minutes later you’re dissing everyone else’s personal opinion.
      pshh! even after Kei said “To each his own na lang”.

      in case you didn’t understand, he’s talking about those people who buys expensive gadgets and/or things but couldn’t even pay for rent.
      he’s not saying mayabang ang bumibili ng mamahaling gadgets. He’s just implying that people have to first prioritize the things they NEED than the things they WANT.

      and yes, expensive gadgets (SGS2 and SENSATION) are a “WANT” thing, it will never be a “NEED” (necessity).

    Either way android is the way to go. iOS is for people who cannot or wii not modify their cellphones to the extent of being able to run it at its best or at its limit.

  37. William T says:

    I don’t think the S2 comes with 8GB SD included as the post states. Although the internal SD (as the Android sees it) 16GB (@12GB free), plus another 2GB internal memory for apps more than make up for it…

  38. dan says:

    nice review,.. Kahit anong issue pa ang sbhin nila sa sgs2, winner padin siya para skin. Depende naman yun sa purpose and needs m. Lahat pwde bumili mahirap o mayaman. Hdi naman ako mayaman pero bibilin ko sya kasi sgs2 meron sya lahat ng kelangan ko. Pwde ko isynchronize ang email koh, nakatipid ako ng pera kc instead of buying SLR Camera sgs2 shoots well, web browser is awesome, madali i costumize. And the best reason kaya ko sya kukunin kasi birthday gift ko yun sa sarili ko

  41. karl says:

    *Durability of the phone? – nasa paggamit yan. kung ndi ka maingat, mdali masira ung phone mo.

    *tsaka meron namang mga protective casing para mas tumibay ang phone mo

    *eh mkakabili ka rin ba ng screen booster para gumanda ang screen just like in SGS2

    *mkakabili ka ba ng camera enhancer para gumanda quality ng camera like in SGS2

    *mkakabili ka ba ng RAM para sa phone?

    *mkakabili ka ba ng INTERNAL MEMORY para sa phone???

    *makakabili ka ba ng bigger battery? – maybe


    • Jared says:

      *kahit sobrang ingat mo, if the phone’s quality is poor then madali padin masisira yun.

      *does it protect your phone against wear and tear?

      *screen booster? links please

      *camera enhancer? you mean camera lens.. they were first introduced for the iPhone.

      *what’s your point?

      *it’s called an “INTERNAL MEMORY” for a reason. I don’t think you get it.

      *bigger? I don’t think it’d fit. higher capacity? – maybe


    • karl says:

      my point is:

      *The sole advantage of SENSATION over SGS2 is durability. But SGS2 CAN do something about that by buying protective cases etc.

      *While all of the advantages of SGS2 over the SENSATION CANNOT be remedied like better display, higher internal memory, higher RAM etc. can u comprehend?

      *and also when u say BIGGER battery, it means higher energy storage capacity and not its physical size, lol. its hard explaining things to noobs!

    • Jared says:

      my point is:

      *”wear and tear” – The gradual deterioration of an asset which results naturally from use and/or age. can u comprehend?

      *you do know that even though one has slightly higher specs doesn’t equate to it as being faster/better.. do you?
      and display is a matter of personal preference (540 x 960) > (480 x 800). (is my math correct?)

      *do you not recognize a troll when you see one?
      lol. its hard explaining things to noobs!

      and did I mention anything about rooting for sensation? I’m just here to prove some people are stupid. and you’re making this way too easy for me. haha

      I thought you REST your CASE?

    • karl says:

      *I can’t rest my case when I know IDIOTS like u exist

      *Yes, it doesn’t mean that if a phone has higher specs, its better. BUT tests can prove if its better.
      check this out:

      *out of the 6 tests, SGS2 wins with flying colors. That’s 6-0 in your face! the Optimus 2x is 2nd place winning 5-1 against the Sensation. In your face again! Do you give up now?

      *although the SENSATION has 540 x 960 display resolution, SUPER AMOLED Plus DISPLAY is a much much better display no doubt! SUPER AMOLED Plus Display is also much better than the RETINA display of iPhone 4

      *and also I forgot to mention the DEATH GRIP of HTC Sensation. when you hold the back of this phone, the WIFI and BLUETOOTH signals will deteriorate to almost ZERO!
      check this out:

      *i don’t want to spend my money on a phone with a problem like that!

      *Please GIVE UP! You’re embarrassing yourself TOO MUCH!

    • Jared says:

      you really are a fanboy aren’t you? haha! I bet if SGS2 had the (540 x 960) resolution and SENSATION had the SUPER AMOLED Plus DISPLAY, you’d say the having a higher resolution is WAY better.

      “Karl: of course not! SUPER AMOLED Plus DISPLAY is still better even if HTC SENSATION had it”
      “Jared: of course you’d say that. haha”

      “and did I mention anything about rooting for sensation? I’m just here to prove some people (you) are stupid (or dumb. whichever you prefer). and you’re making this way too easy for me. haha”

      kudos for yet another dumb reply. bravo!
      are we on the same page? could you review everything I said up until now; did I ever mention anything about HTC SENSATION being better than SGS2?
      like I said, I’m just here to prove you’re dumb. and you’ve proven me right.. again.

      let me spell it out for you. I’ll say it in a way that a (dumb) person like you would understand.

      I’m in NO WAY arguing with you that SENSATION is better than SGS2. SGS2 could be the BEST smartphone ever for all I care.
      my point is none of those tests you gave would tell me what I need. keyword(s): “wear and tear” look at the definition I gave.

      I want to know their decrease in performance over time. to have the results I need, you’d have to use those phones for at least 3-6 months, then test their performance. will SGS2 perform better? we don’t know yet. if it does then ok, SGS2 is indeed better.

      I don’t see why it’s “IN MY FACE”. you’re just making pathetic insults which are not clearly thought of.

    • Jared says:

      good job on doing the research. those reviews are great although irrelevant to what I said.

      and since you went through all the trouble looking for a defect on HTC SENSATION, I went out of my way to dig some dirt on your beloved SGS2.

      and what do you know, I found one: (from one of the most popular tech blogs, engadget)

      oh my! look at those comments, looks like a huge percentage of SGS2 owners have that defect.

      p.s. still not saying that SENSATION is better than SGS2..

      p.p.s. I’m replying here so that the text doesn’t get messy

      p.p.p.s. and I will not say “IN YOUR FACE”

    • Jared says:

      I’m a bit of a psychologist myself; judging by (what I think is) your personality, I’d say you didn’t even read all of my comments.
      after the first part, once you’ve seen that I’m contradicting you, you’re already pissed. that’s why you didn’t understand what I said, you just scanned through it.
      being proud, you wanted to prove me wrong.. to you, it doesn’t really matter how, you just wanted to.
      I’ll make a prediction. guys like you won’t let me have the last word, so I’m expecting a reply. I bet when you’re arguing with someone, you shout a lot.
      you let the tone of your voice decide who won the fight.
      rough guess but quite close isn’t it? ;p

  42. Sam says:

    “To each his own” as someone said. Different people have different needs and/or wants.

    As for me, I use a smartphone mainly for multimedia purposes like watching videos, listening to music, photo editing, and a little gaming. For those purposes, I would go for the SGS2. I’ll love it all the more since it has a pre-installed video editing app, not to mention an improved Super AMOLED from my current SGS.

    By the way, I’m selling a Samsung Wave S8500 w/ full body invisible shield and 8GB external microSD. You may reach me via my number +639275227769 in case you’re interested.

  43. coke says:

    Hi guys, as for my opinion? i think i will go for the htc sensation.

    Better OS still means better quality build. that goes for the sensation.. no doubt about it. it’s like getting a stable OS like win7 on your notebook, instead of getting a vista.

    but for all others there? that would think that.. i didn’t check on the specs.. gs2 is still the winner.. but i do prefer software over hard ware, after all the slimness of gs2 and super amoled is not match for sensation. but i still do think the latest sense, or software development is important, with the updates htc frequently have. i really do enjoy my current sense for htc desire… :)

    • jm says:

      wat r u saying? both SGS2 & Sensation have d same OS (Android Gingerbread)

      y are HTC-fanboys so stupid like that jared guy. LOL

    • Jared says:

      hey jm, ever heard of TouchWiz and HTC Sense? Although he said OS, I think he’s talking about UI..

      you nailed it bro! I AM an HTC fanboy! good job on figuring that out..

      and the reason why I have a Samsung Galaxy S is that I want to prove to you all that samsung sucks and HTC is the BEST!!

      but no sir, I don’t have an HTC phone (yet) nor does anyone I know. but I still LOVE IT! I just bought a samsung phone first because I really wanna bring them down.
      I also created this website: to prove that HTC is the best!!

    • karl says:

      Yeah jared I know Touchwiz, Sense, Optimus UI, Timescape and Motoblur. I know they r UI and they r not OS because I’m not stupid like HTC-fanboys

      Jared you bought a SGS just to prove Samsung sucks??? Hu r u kidding??? If that is true then u r really PLAIN STUPID, hahaha.

      HTC Sensation’s target SRP is 32k. but since it sucks, it’s price goes down to 28k.

      But still no one buys it and we’re all waiting for SGS2!

    • Jared says:

      of course you do! a quick google will tell you all about them..
      oh! so you’re jm? hahaha! hello!^^,

      well, technically it’s a Samsung Galaxy SL (i9003). I just like to call it SGS because it’s cooler. hehe ;)

      anyhow, yes I am stupid. because I let them (samsung) woo me.
      It’s really awesome at first but after a few months they’re a piece of crap! battery depletes too fast, lags and crashes every time. my ipod is way more useful when I’m out because Samsung’s battery runs out too fast! I only use it when I’m home or in the car where I can plug in my device. but if it didn’t have any problems, I wouldn’t use my ipod anymore cause SGSL is obviously better.

      you see jm, karl, or whatever your name is, I’m more of a Samsung hater rather than an HTC fan.

      *and today I found out that schizophrenic people doesn’t understand sarcasm.*

    • Jared says:

      and uhm, what do I call you, karl or jm?
      anyhow, I want know why you hate HTC so much.

      me, I won’t say that HTC is great nor that it is bad because I haven’t had one yet. so I’m not really one to judge here.

      have you had an HTC phone before? did it disappoint you?

    • karl says:

      *I don’t hate HTC. This is a forum titled: Samsung Galaxy S II vs HTC Sensation.

      *HTC Sensation is a good number 2 or 3 choice for a superphone, that’s my point

      *HTC Sensation has its highlights but overall, SGS2 is the best.

      *sorry if I offended you in any way by my comments.

    • Jared says:

      *but the comments you post tells us otherwise.

      “HTC Sensation‘s target SRP is 32k. but since it sucks, it’s price goes down to 28k.”

      *no worries, I’m not offended at all. I’m just pragmatic. and it’s clear that you’ve misunderstood everything.

    • karl says:

      *I’m just telling a PUBLIC INFORMATION. all my comments doesn’t come from me alone. I have information to support my opinions

      Update: HTC Sensation is on sale right now. Its price is now cheaper than SGS2:

      *that is really advantageous for HTC-fans. go get one, hehe.

      *Hope SGS2 also sucks so that its price will go down as well, LOL, just kidding. I will buy SGS2 on Monday when it arrives.

    • Jared says:

      *how’s this for PUBLIC INFORMATION?

      *I not sure if it will be available on monday, every samsung store I asked told me that they’ve not been given a date yet.
      meh! I bet you can’t even afford it.

      *goodluck to you and your imaginary friend jm. haha

    • karl says:

      *SGS2 is already available in CMK @ 27800 pesos. I already reserved a unit. I will get my unit on Monday.

      *HTC is also already available at 27500. Wow that is a BIG discount for HTC fans considering its target SRP was 32k.

      *I will tell you if that “YELLOW” thing really exists. Wait for my post on Tuesday. Have a good day Jared.

    • Jared says:

      so a colleague bought one? oh karl, you’re such a simple minded person. well, I’m not surprised that you didn’t read and/or understand my “public information”.. that “YELLOW” thing does exist. I just hope my sister gets one of the good ones.

      and by the way, where is jm? you know, your imaginary friend. I miss that uncivilized person. I think he’s the real one.

    • karl says:

      *u also did not understand my “public information” about the DEATH DRIP of HTC Sensation. The WIFI and BLUETOOTH of the unit goes down to almost zero while holding the device.

      *this is so SERIOUS than that “yellow tint” which is not at all noticeable and its not tested to be existing in all units

      *the DEATH GRIP issue of HTC Sensation exists IN ALL units!

    • karl says:

      *u know y the DEATH GRIP exists in ALL units of HTC Sensation? Because the device uses the back cover as WIFI and BLUETOOTH antenna. By holding the back cover, the signals deteriorate

      *this is a DUMB engineering work of HTC because iPhone 4 also has this issue and they still commit the same mistake.

    • Jared says:

      but I do understand your “public information”. in fact, I value each and every word you say.

      you see, YOU already gave an advice on how to take care of the DEATH GRIP issue. don’t you remember?

      “*The sole advantage of SENSATION over SGS2 is durability. But SGS2 CAN do something about that by buying protective cases etc.”

      just like in the iPhone, putting on a protective casing takes care of that issue. problem solved!

      and also coming from you:

      “*eh mkakabili ka rin ba ng screen booster para gumanda ang screen just like in SGS2”

      EXACTLY! once you have the yellow tint, it’s forever there. you know, I’m really starting to like you. I think we have common interests.

      p.s. I’m just quoting what you said.

      p.p.s. Sir Abe made a thorough test on the said death grip issue. turns out that it isn’t really a problem at all.
      whether you believe it or not depends on you.

      p.p.p.s. by the way, how’s “your” SGS2? does it have a yellow tint?

    • karl says:

      *I already bought SGS2 yesterday and it is very very fast.

      *No matter how many apps I open, its still blazing fast, NO LAGS whatsoever.

      *everything is working properly.

      *there is no yellow tint issue or any display issue. The SUPER AMOLED PLUS display is so amazing.

      *my money is really worth it

      *so JARED, why don’t you buy yourself an HTC Sensation? What’s the matter? Can’t risk it? Haha LOL.

    • Jared says:

      everything you’ve said is expected.

      “*No matter how many apps I open, its still blazing fast, NO LAGS whatsoever.”
      -of course, it’s a brand new phone duh!

      “*everything is working properly.”
      -may I point out that this is a really dumb statement. of course it is working properly, if it’s not then why the hell would anyone take it?
      seriously, would anyone accept something that’s not working properly?

      “*there is no yellow tint issue or any display issue. The SUPER AMOLED PLUS display is so amazing.”
      congratulations! but judging by your personality of not wanting to lose, you may or or not be telling the truth. oh well, guess we’ll just to have to take your word for it.

      “*my money is really worth it”
      well yeah, for now.. like I said, the real issue of samsung phones is that they’re easy to deteriorate. well, I guess a dim-witted person like you wouldn’t understand.. *sigh*

      buying HTC Sensation? Never even crossed my mind. I’m still good with my SGS + iPod combo. I’ll just wait for the iPhone 5 before choosing which phone to even consider buying.

      we’re going at it for so long and you still think that I’m rooting for HTC Sensation. dude, I’m worried, you should have your brain checked. I’m serious! this is serious stuff!
      at first I thought you were just plain stupid, but now I really think you have an illness. go have it checked up, it won’t hurt to try. no seriously! go have it checked up! I know you might get offended but I’m just being concerned. in situations like these, you just have to accept it even if it hurts..

    • karl says:

      *goodluck with your iPhone 5, lol

      *when iPhone 5 comes out, one month after there will be better phones that will come out also

      *u might wait FOREVER, haha

      *reply here for the review of ur “iPhone 5”, when u have it already, lol.

    • Jared says:

      haha! It’s really funny how I need to explain things to you in a way a 5 year old would understand.

      anyhow, I’m not really looking for a new phone right now. maybe in 2-3 months (i.e release of iphone 5). and I didn’t even mention anything about buying an iphone.

      but here’s what, I’ll give you a review of whatever I’ll buy in 2-3 months. and it surely won’t be SGS2 since my sister already bought one. (I don’t like us having twin phones)

      and yeah, it’s blazing fast! but I only see a wee bit of difference between our phones. I bet we won’t even see a difference once I get my gingerbread update.

      there’s just one thing I didn’t like about it; the speaker. covering it with your finger (even if you don’t put much pressure) mutes it. you won’t hear a thing. it totally blocks out the sound.
      but overall, I like it.

    HTC is really brilliant with the whole totality of the SEnse- professional,edgy & outgoing, really nice.,
    Touchwiz is boring. icons cheapen the look. Samsung learn from this! your icons are cartoony, layouts are so pfft flat.. pay justice to your amoled glory..!

    but with the total feel., if you want a fast phone with slick feel, choose HTC…

    mas matipid ang screen kamo na amoled kumpara sa slcd?

    dude… after testing the two phones, then laying them still open–after a full charge cycle at nalowbat., it yielded me these two datas ( using the android battery meter sa 2 phones ) amoled used 89% of batt power, and slcd, only 45%… ano ka ngayon? before ka magcomment based sa written., i real life test mo

  50. Eroz18 says:

    I’ve been thinking which one to choose over these phones. I currently use HTC Desire HD. I have no issues at all with the browser but I wanted to get the best possible android phone in the market and I was left with these two choices. Clearly in all reviews, Samsung Galaxy SII out runs HTC Sensation in terms off performance so I chose Samsung over HTC. Yesterday I went to Mall of Asia to get my Samsung Galaxy SIi but before that, I compared the two products. I was disappointed on how Samsung Galaxy SIi feels in my hand. It felt cheap compared to HTC Desire HD that I have. It felt like I am holding a cheap remote control that can be blown away anytime. I even felt it cannot support 2-3 helium balloons. I am a heavy user but I feel that few steps behind performance, the HTC Sensation still won’t dissapoint me.

  51. BEB says:

    CRAP!!!! All of YOU!!!

  52. Erick says:

    I’m a fan of both brands. I’d choose HTCSensation over the SamsungGalaxySII. Why? The SGS2 feels cheap, owing to its plastic body. HTCS feels more macho when you hold it. Thats it.

    Comparing specs and reading articles in the internet is one thing, OWNING and EXPERIENCING the real thing is another. Obviously ang daming haters ng both brands.

  53. malcoxx says:

    I was shopping for a new phone under the HTC brand since my GF bought the Chacha and the Sense UI really piqued my attention. I initially considered the Desire S and Incredible S, however when I held the both devices, I opted to get the Sensation since it was larger (screen size wise) and it is more futureproof due to its dual core processor.

    Before defaulting to HTC Sensation, I obviously considered getting the SGS II since both are flagship phones, which means, there would be better accessories, UI updates and longevity specs wise. However due to the bad impression my Samsung Galaxy Tab (the first one) gave me, I automatically shot down the SGS II, despite the great reviews I’ve been reading.

    The bad experiences I had with SGT were: Terrible battery life, laggy (despite the task killers I use) and the selling value was SO bad.

    I bought the phone for almost 34k and just a few months after the price when down to 21k. That’s really terrible IMHO.

    The Sensation so far is turning out to be a good choice because:

    1. The battery life is good even if you leave the 3g open during idle time.
    2. The screen even with minimum brightness is crisp and vivid.
    3. HTC Sense is hands down the best UI for all Droids out there.

    AFI so far:
    1. The headset should have been at least an in ear one. The included ones are plasticky and feels cheap. I know that there is a future special edition Sensation that would have Beats on. So that is something to look forward to, if you haven’t bought one.
