Sensation vs. Galaxy S II: Does qHD make a difference?

One of the lingering questions after our HTC Sensation review earlier this week was just how much of a difference the smartphone's qHD 960 x 540 resolution display makes over the regular crop of WVGA 800x 480 phones. More pressingly, does Samsung's Super AMOLED Plus panel on the Galaxy S II, with its surfeit of sub-pixels, hold a candle to the Sensation. There's only one way to find out: some uber-high-resolution photos in a GSII/Sensation shoot out!

HTC Sensation unboxing & first-impressions [Video]

We had high expectations for HTC's first dual-core smartphone, and the company delivered with the HTC Sensation. A mixture of evolution and revolution, the family resemblance is clear: a 4.3-inch display like the Desire HD, only now running at qHD 960 x 540 resolution; a Snapdragon processor like the Desire S, only now Qualcomm's new 1.2GHz dual-core MSM8260 processor; and HTC Sense, only v3.0 with a new intelligent lock-screen and HTC Watch for video rentals and downloads. All in all, the HTC Sensation is shaping up to be one of the smartphones to beat in 2011; check out our full unboxing and first-impressions after the cut.

HTC Sensation bucks Android trend with anti-mod bootloader

This is going to be really bad news for fans of Android smartphones that are waiting with anticipation for the HTC Sensation to hit. A new system dump has been unearthed, and the dump shows that the Sensation has a locked bootloader.
