HTC releases two new Android smartphones within two weeks of each other.  Both have awesome specs guaranteed to woo prospective smartphone buyers.  What do we do to figure out which one is the best?  A PhoneDog Dogfight, that's what! 

Aaron throws Sprint's HTC EVO 3D and T-Mobile's HTC Sensation 4G into the ring to determine which one is the must-have HTC Android phone.  Both phones have a 1.2 GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, 4.3-inch qHD display, and run Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) with HTC Sense 3.0.  The major differences?  Aside from design and 3D capabilities, the EVO 3D has dual 5-megapixel cameras with 720p HD video recording capabilities and 1 GB of RAM, while the Sensation 4G sports an 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording and 768 MB of RAM.

It's a case of speed versus beauty.  Which one will come out on top?  Part 1 of 2.

Don't forget to VOTE! Each week, PhoneDog Fans vote for their #1 smartphone in the Official Smartphone Rankings. Vote now and contribute to the industry's most relevant weekly ranking charts

Mikel Dobson They are both good phones, but I go with the EVO 3D. Though, the 3D might be a gimmick, it is fun to have and play with in your spare time. The phone itself is very fast and I have experience no lag. The battery life seems much better than my EVO 4G and I've even gone from a Saturday afternoon to the following Sunday afternoon where it finally went into red and needed a charge. The slim down of it from the EVO 4G is very appealing as well. I will agree that Sprint might be having network issues, though in my area (Seattle, one of the first Wimax markets for Sprint), it is not too noticeable. All in all, both awesome phones and it all comes down to preference. EVO FTW!!

Mike West
Mike West Infuse cause 1.2ghz is more than enough for everything I've used, has 16gb internally, plus my 32gb SD, the screen size and look of it is fantastic, (HBO GO anyone?) The camera is amazing, and the battery lasts quite long because it's single core. I do like HTC though as well.

P Greenwood III
P Greenwood III Thought I was gonna be disappointed with 3d but I actually love it. My area TMo out performs Sprint network wise unless in a building in my area, but my 3d speeds are about the same as my Evo was. Call quality is a little less. But like I said 3D
Joel Castro

Matthew Garrison
Matthew Garrison Guess my vote doesn't count being a fan of my G2X. But what is the point of being able to take 3D pictures and video and not being able to show them off unless it's on your phone?

Richard Ameen
Richard Ameen TEAM NEXUS S 4G. The sensation and the evo 3d are really slowed down by their sense 3.0. They need their dual cores to run reasonably smooth. The evo 3d I think is a smudge faster just because it's got 1 gig of ram compared to the sensations 786mb of ram. The nexus s feels faster even though it's got single core. G2x kills both in speed

Carlos Quinones Sensation just seems better. Better looking, better battery, better camera. I like the whole 3D on the evo, but unless 3D technology becomes the norm, it seems pretty useless and battery hogging
