Form Features
Nokia N9 looks pretty cool, standing straight and looking bold and adventurous. It comes with many colors to feast on but its bit too much polish which can slip from hands. The curvy screen with bright light and extremely squared-off bodywork looks very formal. Whereas HTC Sensation Xe looks casual look with curved corners and matt look feels soft on hands. Nokia N9 measures 116.5×61.2×12.1mm and HTC Sensation Xe measures 126.1×65.4×11.3mm in dimensions respectively. Sensation Xe is bit heavier weighing 151g where is N9 is lighter as weighing 135g only.
Champion – Nokia N9
Display
Nokia N9 has AMOLED capacitive touchscreen and Sensation Xe has 3.9-inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen. The display of Nokia is made from extra tough Gorilla Glass and is been caked with an anti-glare polarizer which means you don’t have to put the phone away when the sun comes out. However, HTC Sensation Xe has 4.3 inch S-LCD capacitive touchscreen with Gorilla Glass display which is been used for robust screen but it doesn’t have the anti-glare properties of the N9 so not work properly in bright conditions. The N9 has 480×854 pixels screen which is comparatively less than HTC which has 540×960 pixels.
Both the phone supports multi-touch inputs, accelerometer sensor for UI auto-rotate, Proximity sensor for auto turn-off but HTC Sensation Xe has extra Gyro sensor for 360 degree rotation and HTC sense UI too much make it a winner in this case.
Champion – HTC Sensation Xe
Operating System
Nokia runs MeeGo OS with a version 1.2 Harmattan and it has been intended to support gesture based control, map-reading and as we know that N9 is a button-less device that’s just it works. Through various swipes will take you to one of the three specialized home screens. HTC Sensation Xe runs on Android Gingerbread version 2.3.4 which is currently been planned to get Android 4.0 upgradation soon in coming year. Android has proved the multi tasking performance and smooth OS to function with. Both the phone seems flagged their quality of task and speed.
Champion – Both
Processor
This HTC handset owes 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, Adreno 220 GPU, Qualcomm MSM 8260 Snapdragon chipset which provides better graphics with awesome pace. Whereas Nokia opts 1GHz single core processor and also has Cortex A8 CPU, PowerVR SGX530 GPU for graphics and TI OMAP 3630 chipset. What we analyzed from here that HTC Sensation Xe has dual core which makes work very fast if compared with N9. The operation if done through HTC will not put pressure on the phones processor and you won’t believe that its web-page loading is much faster than Nokia N9.
Champion – HTC Sensation Xe
Camera
HTC Sensation Xe and Nokia N9 are been spotted with 8MP camera and 3264×2448 pixels. They both also supports dual LED flash and autofocus. Nokia uses Carl Zeiss optics which is known for its vivid quality and has secondary camera where as HTC Sensation Xe uses 0.3MP VGA front camera for video chatting and supports digital zoom but N9 has 4x digital zoom which is not a big deal.

HTC allows you to geo-tagging, touch-focus, image stabilization, face detection and instant capture where as Nokia only supports geo-tagging, face detection and touch-focus. The HTC sensation can recode 1080p at 30fps videos but the N9 is happy lower quality of 720p at 30fps. Actually Nokia balances its features by only flashing the Carl Zeiss lenses which is worlds best for tough use but HTC has winning HD camcorder which recodes stereophonic sound videos.

Multimedia
We look forward for the quality of sound where N9 has Dolby digital plus which is known to be a star with other audio formats like MP3, MPEG-4, AAC, EAAC, EAAC+,MP2 etc With Loud Speaker And 3.5 Mm Audio Jack . However, HTC Sensation Xe only supports MP3, EAAC+, WMA, WAV With Loud Speaker And 3.5mm Audio Jack. HTC supports Stereo FM radio but N9 doesn’t support.
HTC supports 3gp, .3g2, .mp4, .wmv, .avi and .xvid format video and so as Nokia N9. Both support video sharing to YouTube, editing and YouTube browsing & streaming supports.
Champion – Nokia N9 because of its Dolby quality.
Storage & Battery
In case of storage HTC has the biggest weakness as it only has 768MB RAM if it is compared with N9 then is caked with1GB RAM and offers 16/32GB of internal memory (no microSD card slot) where HTC only supports 4GB and can be expanded to 32GB with micro SD card. Some users say N9 has enough memory so they don’t need card slot to improvise their storage capacity.
Nokia battery is the best battery ever I had surveyed as it gets fitted into many branded and non branded phones. Nokia uses Standard Li-Ion1340mAh battery which provides 11 h /2G and 6.5 h/3G. However, HTC uses Standard Li-Ion 1730mAh battery with a talk time of 9.5 h/2G and 7.4 h/3G. Both the phones have a standby of 340 h and 310 h respectively in N9 and Sensation Xe.
Though HTC has high mAh battery but whose productivity is slow as compared to N9 which 1320mAh but the productivity which it generates is 25% extra then HTC.
Champion – Nokia N9
Connectivity and Data transfer
Both the phone uses 2G GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 and 3G HSDPA 850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100 networking. HTC has a data speed of 14.4 Mbps download speed in 3G as well as 5.76 Mbps as upload speed. It also uses GPRS, EDGE and WiFi as IEEE 802.11 b/g/n and N9 also has same features as HTC. For connectivity N9 uses NFC, Bluetooth 2.1, 2.0 USB and WiFi hotspot whereas HTC uses Bluetooth 3.0, 2.0 USB and WiFi Hotspot. Both phones supports A-GPS to work in poor signal conditions.
