HTC Sensation Officially Released and Priced

HTC Sensation finally released in the Philippines; Specs and price are now available

High Tech Computer Corporation or HTC Philippines has finally released HTC Sensation and officially revealed the SRP for this new smartphone.


HTC Sensation Price

HTC Sensation’s suggested retail price is Php31,990 from official retailers. Hmmm… much expensive than Samsung Galaxy S II I9100?

This is the third dual-core smartphone that I have posted an article, first the LG Optimus 2X followed by Samsung Galaxy S2 i9100 and HTC Sensation. These three dual-core smartphones have more or less similar prices, similarly powerful and pack with lots of great features. See HTC Sensation Specifications below.

I’m not sure about Globe but Smart Communications is offering post paid plans for HTC Sensation and it will be free at Plan 3000. Maybe Globe will stick with their Samsung Galaxy S II (exclusive distributor).

If you would ask, which one should I get now? Galaxy S II or HTC Sensation

HTC Sensation release dateComparing HTC Sensation and Samsung Galaxy S II i9100, the Galaxy S2 has a little advantage like the 2MP front camera, 9 sensors and some other small features that I probably have missed. The determining factor here would be the price. Both of these dual-core smartphones are great. It’s really up to you which one would you choose or which one would you “feel” like using.
