High Quality Processors On The iPhone 4S And The HTC Sensation XL

Both of these models perform admirably and offer high quality screens but the iPhone 4S does seem to come out on top in this comparison. There is no doubt however that both models will prove hugely popular and anybody who finds the smaller screen size on the iPhone a little restrictive should look no further than the larger display on the Sensation XL.

Two of the heavyweights of the smartphone world have gone head to head by releasing premium devices within days of one another. The HTC Sensation XL and the Apple iPhone 4S are both now available to the public so we take a look at how these two models compare against one another. One area where the iPhone 4S definitely comes out on top is screen performance. This models offers a 3.5 inch LED backlit screen which is 1.2 inches smaller than the Sensation XL but Apple manage to pack more pixels into this space thanks to a higher resolution of 640 x 960. As a result of this extraordinary resolution the handset is capable of displaying a huge 326 pixels per inch. The Sensation XL uses an S-LCD display that measures a huge 4.7 inches making it the phone of choice for video fans. This screen displays a lower resolution than the Apple at 480 x 800 and this has a dramatic effect on the amount of pixels that can be displayed, reducing the number to just 199 per inch. Besides another handset you would be impressed by the quality of the HTC but against the world beating iPhone the screen certainly comes out second best. There is a real battle in the processor department between these two phones. On the one hand we have the Apple that offers a lower powered chip but one with dual cores against a single core chip with immense power on the HTC. The iPhone 4S uses Apples own A5 chipset which includes a 1Ghz ARM Cortex A9 processor. This is backed up by 512MB of RAM which is a lower figure than is offered on the HTC but ultimately the combination of the two result in better all round performance from the iPhone 4S. The Sensation XL uses a single core 1.5Ghz together with 768MB of RAM and together these give great performance on the phone but just not in the same league as the 4S. In terms of the storage capacity offered on these phones there is no difference if we compare the Sensation XL with Apples basic model as they both offer an adequate 16GB of capacity with no external media slot. The nice aspect about the iPhone 4S is that it does offer two larger capacity models in the form of a 32GB and a 64GB model meaning there really is an iPhone 4S to suit every kind of user. Both of these models perform admirably and offer high quality screens but the iPhone 4S does seem to come out on top in this comparison. There is no doubt however that both models will prove hugely popular and anybody who finds the smaller screen size on the iPhone a little restrictive should look no further than the larger display on the Sensation XL. The iPhone 4S and the HTC Sensation XL are available now.
