That's the biggest Android HTC phone at the moment, along with the EVO 3D and Sensation XE. On WP7, HTC has a 4.7 inch phone called Titan coming out, with a rumoured Android equivalent called Runnymede in the works.

Actually the HD2 & Desire HD are 'bigger'.
The form factor of teh Sensation is different (qHD) so in overall acerage slightly smaller than the other two. I've got both the HD2 & Sensation in front of me and although on the diagonal they're the same, the HD2 & Desire HD are wider, and noticeably so.

HTC Advantage? :)

That doesn't make sense. Both phones have 109mm diagonal screens so according to Pythagoras they should have the same surface area. I think you'll find the Sensation's screen is narrower BUT longer.

blizzard is right, well, Pythagoras' theorem is, but the point still stands. The Sensation has a longer, narrower screen, for 16:9 video watching.

blizzard you are of course right. The HD2 & Desire HD just FEEL much **** because of the different aspect ratio. Same happened when people switched from 4:3 ro 16:9 TVs you had to go for a much larger screen to get the same depth. The Sensation definitely seems smaller (albeit slightly taller)

Don't worry you're not alone. A lot of reviewers noted the Sensation feels a lot smaller than its predecessors due to its 16 by 9 ratio. Makes me wonder why more manufacturers don't use this ratio as its perfect for video viewing too.
