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.

KoDy Designed ByCrime I'm #team GSII!!! LOL HTC SUCKS!
Thomas Nikedollarsign Davidenko Team skins suck because it takes longer to update
Mika Cochrum iPhone!!!
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!!
Robert Walker Team Sensation all day.
Vincent Vitiello Team iPhone
Trentavious Brown EVO3D all the way! No contest
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.
Chris Clark Proud member of Team Sensation here.
Perro Rosello #teamevo3d
James Broom I have the EVO 3d and I love it. The battery does last all day. You don't have to use the 3d cameraif you don't want to.

Rian Kapadia Team EVO
Chris Riley Well, considering I'm typing this comment with EVO 3d I guess I will go with that...I'm just saying..
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 Team Sensation
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?
Jared Jones Iphone blows!...go team 3D!!!
Michael Horn I'm neither #TEAMIPHONE all the way
Nathan Sherlock Sensation for sure
Joe Lopez Sensation
Aj Green Don't like 3D so I'm going with sensation..
Justin Rodriguez Team captivate!!
Sean MacNabb #TeamNeitherBecauseIshellOutMyMoneyForArealCarrierVerizonFTW
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
Kory S. Deberry Both, they are both made from the best cell MFG in the world, HTC baby, from my Evo 3d
Cory Spencer Team EVO 3D
Walt Alan Wilcutts 3D for sure. I'm loving mine.

Christopher E. Truty I'd go with the evo3d. But Aaron ... please on the next review of a phone don't talk about how you like the box it came in and how eco friendly it is. No one gives a fuck about the box. Seriously
Andrew Camacho Sensation!!!!
Nilson Minaya I think the evo is a better handset not because I have.

Larry Lambert Sensation is pretty yes but with a case on it who is going to know the difference really. So them you have to look at specs.

Eric Steen EVO 3D
Jasé Phillip again why buy a phone that cant last all day..
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
Tony Garris Team evolution 3d
