HTC Sensation 4G retail price set at $549.99, beats Galaxy S II by $150
Apart from being HTC’s first dual-core flagship, the 4.3-inch Sensation 4G is also the first true rival to Samsung’s Galaxy S II flagship which similarly flaunts a dual-core processor and equally sized screen, all in a super slim package. While feature-wise the two handsets are similar, pricewise they are miles apart – the Samsung Galaxy S II currently sells for some $150 more as it carries a $699.99 price tag on Amazon.

....Will this phone have locked bootloader ?

That's a good question, Pol. HTC has recently said that they will ship their future releases with an unlocked bootloader, but it seems that even HTC doesn't know yet whether that includes the Sensation 4G. Stay tuned.

always liked htc phone. They just really need to work on their battery, speaker and camera-desperately. from the reviews, its doesnt really look like they did. :(
[EDIT]Sry didnt mean to reply lol

this bootloader is locked for the HTC. HTC said "future" devices starting with the Evo3d.
the galaxy stomps it hands down. if money isnt a factor, get the sammy. either way they are both great devices though.

I don't believe the prices can be compared, the $549.99 is a US Wireless Carrier Retail price and the $699.99 (unlocked no carrier affiliation) will most likely not be the price for the SG2 when it is officially sold by the US Wireless Carriers.

That is a very good point. We will have to see what the US versions of the SGS II will be like.
Let the price wars begin (much to my delight).

I think even Iphone 3 is better than any of these phones. Can you guess the reason...don't be stupid because it's simply IPHONE made by APPLE. It's the only phone that makes you "smart" even if you are not. If you are smart enough u don't need an iphone.

Factoring in the price difference makes the Sensation the better choice. To me anyway.

I'm based in Belgium, Europe. Next week I'm flying the US and I'm thinking of buying a HTC Sensation.
Does anybody know if the sensation will work in Europe ?
