The Samsung Galaxy S II, LG Optimus 2X, and HTC Sensation


Remember those days when you heard about those dual-core phones and thought, “Man those will be cool when they finally come out!” and then went on with your lives? Well, sirs and madams, wake up. That day is today, right now. Dual-cores are out. People have them. And even if they’re slightly limited run, you can finally have them without even needing to be best friends with their company CEOs anymore – provided you just have the money to pony up. But how much money exactly? Well, CMKCellphones and TopElectronics are asking for PHP 27,500 for the HTC Sensation, PHP 27,800 / 28,700 for the Samsung Galaxy S II, and PHP 24,990 for the LG Optimus 2X. All of this years’ top end, dual core phones are now at your fingertips – provided those fingertips are holding some cash or a credit card. Let’s compare specs after the jump!


The Samsung Galaxy S II, HTC Sensation, and LG Optimus 2X now usher in the era of dual-core for pretty much all smartphone kind. At this point, nothing short of speeds above 1Ghz and/or dual-cores will make us stand up and notice things. And for better or worse, that’s where we’re headed. These three manufactures have gone and given us their flagship stake for 2011, and here are their specs – side by side.

Take note that an objective comparison of specs isn’t going to end up with a proper decision making purchase, but we highlighted the points that may become an advantage/disadvantage to any certain phone. While the Optimus 2X is definitely trailing on the specs department, we have to remember that it came out first and the other two had some extra time to bump up their tech.


What’s important now is that you can finally buy these dual-core demons, and at some fairly decent prices. Your choice at this point will be influenced by your own preferences – build quality, speed, screen tech, screen size, resolution, price, software UI, and other small details. Whichever one you choose though will end up to be a pretty awesome phone – at least for the time being.
