    I currently have a HTC desire. I think my main options are the HTC Sensation or the Galaxy S2. If i got the Sensation I'd upgrade the battery but which would be the better option? Or would i be best waiting a couple of months because i know they've both been out a few months now?

    Any help appreciated :)

    They are pretty much identical. Like I say I can upgrade the sensation battery.
    I might just toss a coin ha

    Personally though, there are a few things in the SGS2's favor:

    1. Internal 32gb, then add a 32gb card, you get 64gb storage
    2. More future proof since it has 1gb RAM
    3. AFAIK the SGS2 chipset is faster and better than the HTC chipset: Exynos vs Snapdragon. It doesnt matter if both are clocked at 1.2Ghz dual core. Exynos is better.

    The Exynos also has a much better GPU than the Snapdragon. Which is definitely something to consider if you enjoy games with good graphics. Also, the SGSII is much thinner than the Sensation if that matters at all to you.
