Every day there seems to be a nice new smartphone being announced or released. Consumers now have a rich variety of handsets to tempt them with many impressive models now available. Today we have an article comparing the HTC Sensation vs the Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo.

Paul Briden over at Know Your Mobile has written an article comparing the two handsets. The Sensation is the bigger of the two and slightly heavier, but does come out best for thickness. Like most HTC handsets the Sensation is instantly recognized as an HTC device. It is a nice long and thin handset which has been the norm of late.

While the Neo is going in the opposite direction by being much more compact of the two. Display wise the Sony has a 3.7-inch LED backlit LCD, while the Sensation has a Sony made 4.3-inch S-LCD. The display on the HTC is not only larger, but also has a higher resolution.

A lot of the new smartphones coming to market lately are getting dual-core processors, and the HTC is no different. The Xperia Neo on the other hand has a single core 1 GHz Qualcomm Scorpion processor. Both handsets will run the Android Gingerbread operating system.

The Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo is a pretty good handset, but Sony hasn’t future proved it enough. This time last year it would have been one of the best handsets available, but in today’s market it is not as good as the HTC.

Which handset do you prefer?
