T-Mobile HTC Amaze 4G vs Galaxy S II [Video]

Today is the day, the HTC Amaze 4G and Samsung Galaxy S II are both available right now at T-Mobile. Before you run down to your nearest T-Mobile store or head to the online shop and pick one up, we figured you'd like a little hardware comparison video showing off the goods both phones have to offer. Today I present you with a quick little Amaze 4G vs Galaxy S II hardware comparison video, check it and all the pictures out below.

We have covered both of these phones plenty in the recent past and before you watch the comparison video We've also reviewed them both. Here is the Amaze 4G Review, then the Galaxy S II Review. If you are considering either of these phones then you most likely already know plenty about them. We have 1.5 GHz dual-core processors in both along with 1GB of RAM, 16GB internal storage, 8 MP rear and 2 MP front cameras. Basically they are pretty similar in regards to the internals. Its the hardware on the outside that is different. The looks, feel, size, and then the software of course. Both are running Android 2.3 Gingerbread and feature a few slight UI changes by their respectable creators. For now lets just check out the video shall we?

With two powerhouse top tier smartphones such as these, this will most likely come down to user preference. Some might love the Sense UI or amazingly great build quality of HTC with the Amaze 4G, others might be interested in having a super sleek and lightweight phone from the Galaxy S II. Two large factors are the AMOLED display in the SGSII, vs the higher resolution qHD Super LCD in the Amaze 4G. Then you have battery life and performance, benchmarks and more. I go over all of this in extreme detail in both of the device reviews linked to above so feel free to read over them and see all the pictures to help you decide.

Happily provided is the video above as well as a few pictures in the gallery below. Instead of getting into details about the battery life or benchmark results I'll just once again urge you to check out our full reviews. Benchmarks don't mean everything and both phones perform extremely well for daily use and I'd be happy with either one over on T-Mobile.

The choice is yours, what phone would you rather buy from T-Mobile today -- the Galaxy S II or the Amaze 4G?

    I’ll go for the HTC. An internal storage of > 16 TB is not easy to look away from  :D

    They both have the same internals pretty much, but id go with the htc as well, the metal build quality is something i really enjoy, and its been very nice on my G2. Just feels right, a little heavier but feels like it was worth the money. Dont know if im ready to give up my keyboard and still havent had any issues with my G2.

    also the htc has a better screen, its a little smaller, but the samsung seems to big and not as high-res..and overall i dont care for samsungs android devices so far, they all just look like iphones and touchwiz is ugly and a painfully obvious ios rip-off. htc’s sense is pretty nice, but i still prefer to root and use Cyanogenmod, but i do like sense’s camera and a few other features alot.

    This review video was a waste of time.. spent like 3 mins talking about the dimensions, which can quickly be read off of a spec list anywhere, and need only be briefly mentioned in a video. Did not ever get to explaining the battery life image shown above, which is what I was primarily interested in. Can someone please give me an accurate rundown on the battery life comparison of these two phones?
