Samsung Galaxy S3 vs HTC Sensation XE
If we are to compare the Samsung Galaxy S3 with a powerful handset we definitely must take the HTC Sensation XE in our consideration. We have recently discuss about performances capabilities between the S3 and other consecrated devices, such as the iPhone 5, Nokia Lumia 900, Xperia Arc S and more, just to offer you the perfect view about Samsung’s latest accomplish. As you might know, the S3 is a long expected device, its specs and features making it the most wanted phone of the year. There are many users who just can’t wait until its official release, so that’s why we are trying to reveal all of its future capabilities.
Therefore, the best way to do so is by comparing the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S3 with the HTC Sensation XE. We will discuss about the differences between them so that in the end we can tell which one is the best. Of course the conclusion is predictable, especially if consider that the XE was released last year on October, while the S3 is still being expected.
First of all, we must talk about the design. The S3 is having a larger screen than the XE, though the looks are more appealing on HTC. Samsung is bringing a 4.8 inch HD Super AMOLED display with 720p HD resolution, while on the other hand we have a 4.3 inch S LCD capacitive touchscreen display on the Sensation XE. We can easily conclude that the S3 is the winner when it comes to touchscreen performances, the Super AMOLED being the best. But, both are looking good, having such a phone will surely impress the audience.
Now, let’s compare the specs. The most important aspect that you must consider when you buy a smartphone is its processor. The Galaxy S3 is far better than the Sensation XE on this matter, as the 1.4 GHz quad core Exynos processor will always beat the 1.5 GHz dual core Scorpion processor with Qualcomm MSM8260 Snapdragon chipset. So, again the S3 is proving to be the best device to be released.
Other specs included on the Samsung Galaxy S3 are the 8 MP rear facing camera along with the 1.9 front facing one, 1 GB of RAM, a 2100 mAh battery and more. The camera is similar with the one featured on the XE, so let’s say that we have a tie, though the S3 should capture pictures faster and brighter. The XE is having only 768 MB of RAM memory, so you can conclude the results.
Another huge difference between the Galaxy S3 and HTC Sensation XE is referring to the operating system. Both are running Google’s Android platform, but the version of the firmware is the ine that interest the most. Unfortunately, on the XE is running the already outdated Gingerbread, while the Ice Cream Sandwich comes pre-installed on the S3. Of course HTC promised a soon to come update, but so far there are no words of the same. The features included on ICS are far more powerful than the Gingerbread ones, so again Samsung is in front of HTC.
To conclude, there is not much to say. As we could notice from the lines above, the Galaxy S3 easily beats the HTC Sensation XE. It has a better processor, more RAM, a better battery and the latest Android OS. It’s easy to imagine why there is so much interest regarding to its official release and future availability. We can only hope that in the near future, other companies, like HTC, will come with better smartphones, just to prove Samsung and us that the S3 is only the beginning.
