Size and Design:
HTC always has something different about it design but sensation goes a step ahead having a longer, much thinner and a sleek design something that you haven’t seen much with HTC phones. The edges are curved but not over done with a nice finish right though out the surface. It weighs 148g.Blackberry is finally trying to come out of their typical design mode and looking to produce more elegant devices. BlackBerry Torch is probably the more stylish of the Blackberry devices so far thanks to its giant screen, angular shape, and sliding out QWERTY keyboard. The phone weighs 161g but the stylish looks have it very much covered.
The two phones belong to a different class when it comes to the display front. Phones with QWERTY keyboard are usually the ones not getting into the 4.0inch category ,same is the case with Blackberry torch having a 3.2inch TFT capacitive touch screen with 360*480 resolution an optical track pad and multiple touch feature.HTC desire however is way ahead , featuring a Sony made 4.3 inch S-LCD capacitive touch screen gorilla glass display with a resolution of 540*960 pixels.HTC has loaded the sensation with its 3.0UI, multitouch, gyro sensors and accelerometer features.HTC desire is clearly the winner on the display front.
Torch provides an impressive 4GB of internal storage with the RAM and ROM each having 512MB to go with it. The storage capacity can be extended with the help of micro SD card supportive up to 32GB. HTC desire only has 1GB of internal memory but slightly greater 768MB of RAM. The external storage can be extended up to 32 GB same like the Torch. Additional RAM on Sensation is a plus but greater storage capacity of Torch takes it in front.
Torch uses the Blackberry’s own BB6.0 OS and sensation relies on the increasingly popular latest version of Google Android. It would be hard to compare the two as both are designed according to their own preferences. BB6.0 offer excellent business tools where you can easily organize your files and contacts where as Android 2.3 offers a greater customization features.
Sensation signifies its power with a dual core 1.2Ghz processor, something that is quiet rear so far on smart phones. Such high power processer allows multitasking, browsing the web at a much higher speed and a quick overall response from your device. Torch, even though nowhere close to the 1.2 GHz dual core processor, has a decent enough processor that performs the task quiet efficiently at a quick speed.
HTC features an 8Mp camera that is able to record HD videos at either 720p or 1080p and go with it offer numerous image enhancing features. Torch features a decent enough 5MP camera capable of recording high quality videos and images.
