Difference Between HTC Sensation and Apple iPhone 4

HTC Sensation vs Apple iPhone 4

One of the latest HTC phones is the Sensation. It is really inevitable that it gets compared to the iPhone 4 as it is the most popular smartphone nowadays and is considered to be the benchmark. The main difference between the Sensation and the iPhone 4 is the processor that they have. The iPhone 4 has a single core A4 processor that is underclocked to 800Mhz to save power. In contrast, the Sensation has a dual core processor on the Snapdragon chipset that runs at an even higher 1.2Ghz. A faster processor usually means that the Sensation is capable of running more demanding applications. The Sensation should also benefit significantly with the dual core processor in running apps in the background.

With the increased processing power of the two cores, the Sensation is capable of recording 1080p videos; something that the iPhone 4 and its weaker processor is not able to do, resorting to 720p maximum resolution. Even when it comes to still pictures, the Sensation manages to do better with its 8 megapixel camera coupled with two LED flashes. A lot better than the 5 megapixel camera and single LED flash on the iPhone 4.

Of course, there is always that glaring difference between their operating systems; the main thing that separates the iPhones from Android phones like the Sensation. At this point, it is just a matter of preference with the interface and how they work overall. Some may prefer simplicity of the iOS while others may like the greater degree of freedom provided by Android.

Lastly, there are a couple of minor differences with their hardware. The first is the lack of an FM radio in the iPhone 4. This feature comes pretty much as standard in HTC phones, and the Sensation is no exception. The second is in memory storage. The iPhone 4, like most other Apple devices, use a fixed amount of internal memory that cannot be upgraded or replaced. The Sensation also follows other HTC devices and use a memory card slot that can accommodate microSD cards of up to 32GB.
