IPhone 3GS or HTC SEnsation XE

Which is better - the old I Phone or the HTC. I can get either one for around the £20 mark - I am guess in that the more upto date the phone is the better - any arguments otherwise?

The Sensation XE would wipe the floor with the 3GS, so if you can get them for around the same price, it's a no brainer to me.

Sensation XE has triple the pixels (and that's not an exaggeration), which would be a lot better for web surfing and videos, a faster processor, an incoming upgrade to ICS and a lot more.

I would only really consider the 3GS if you've already made a huge investment into iOS apps and the like. You have to think that after a 2 year contract, the 3GS will be over 4 years old.

Thanks That is what I thought. Nice to hear it from an expert though ;-)

Thanks again

I second everything Blizzard said, go for the Sensation XE mate :).

It destroys the iPhone 3GS in every department. If your investment in the iOS ecosystem is large already, consider the extra outlay for at least an iPhone 4, it'll be a much nicer experience for the duration of your contract.

If you have little to no investment in the iOS ecosystem, I'd 100% recommend the Sensation XE, it's a great phone, basically it's what the Sensation always should have been.

+1 on the Sensation XE.
