HTC Sensation 4G retail price set at $549.99, beats Galaxy S II by $150
The HTC Sensation 4G is HTC’s latest flagship and the first dual-core handset by the Taiwanese company premiering HTC Sense UI 3.0, but up until now its U.S. retail price tag remained a secret. T-Mobile broke the silence recently with some good news – the Sensation 4G is to cost $549.99 off contract, while if you get it with a two-year agreement including voice and data it will set you back $199.99.

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.

Both handsets, however, offer superior performance and you might have a hard time picking the right one for you. If price isn’t your only concern, feel free to check out our in-depth review of the Samsung Galaxy S II and the HTC Sensation (in its European version) and let us know which one would you pick in the comments below.
