Atrix VS S2VS Sensation

Which to get!?! I am currently leaning towards the S2 as it has 1GB RAM I think... However I would like the aluminium unibody construction of the Sensation with the ability to turn it into a netbook of the Atrix. It's so hard to choose! Help!!

My vote goes to the S2.

I don't agree that resolution is everything when comparing AMOLED to LCD in the same why when comparing LCD TV's to Plasma. IMO, the AMOLED on the Galaxy S was the best screen out there. Another benefit of AMOLED is the lower power conmsumption. A 4.3" screen is going to be sucking some juice out of the battery and seeing how woeful the battery life is on a Desire HD, I would prefer to spend my money on something which lasts a reasonable amount of time.

And to top it all, the internal storage on the Sensation is quite poor. As a keen user of Spotify etc, I would prefer to have the increased internal storage of the S2 which I can still bolster with an SD card.

Sensation.

Atrix is running Android 2.2 and slowest of the three.
Samsung has lowest resolution, which is very important. AMOLED cannot compensate for higher resolution screens of Sensation and Atrix.
Sensation is 4.3 inch, which could be too big for some people.

Note: Atrix is only world phone out of the three.

I would like the higher resolution, however the battery life has been a big issue on my Desire, anything to make it a bit longer would be great. The only concern is the S2 looks a bit platicy on the pictures I've seen.

@devi8 - You are mixing apples and oranges. S2 has 480x800 and Sensation has 540x960. S2 has better screen quality, but lower resolution. Which TV would you prefer? 720p LED or 1080p LCD?

Internal storage on S2 is same as on Sensation. S2 has internal SD card, not internal storage. If you ever used Nexus S you would know that storage is 1GB and SD storage is around 16GB, which is treated as regular SD card which cannot be removed. I don't know why 32GB storage limit would make anyone unhappy and make them buy phone with 48GB.

@swampy_donkey - Desire has software problems. Try loading a custom ROM and your battery issue will be solved.
