Default My 3GS bit the dust... Sensation 4g or Galaxy S II?

So it is time to replace the darn thing. NCIX has a great sale on 2 contenders:

NCIX.com - Buy Samsung I9100 Galaxy S II 3G Unlocked Android 2.3 Phone 8.0MP Camera 4.3IN Touchscreen 16GB - White - Samsung Mobile - i9100 White - in Canada

and

NCIX.com - Buy HTC Sensation 4G Unlocked DUAL-CORE Android Phone 8.0MP Camera 4.3IN S-LCD - HTC - Sensation4G - in Canada

Which one is better, especially in battery life?

Comes out any day now. It is the 4G version of Galaxy S II. Better specs all around really.

I'm waiting for the damn SG2 X myself.

I don't like the SG2 NCIX is selling as its the bell version which has a physical home button which I don't like.

I'd say go for the SGS2, in whatever iteration you like. Currently the "best" Android phone I'd say, until the Galaxy Nexus comes out in November.

Which I did. That sale price was just too hard to pass. Let's see if I was fast enough since there were 15 available this morning, and none are left in stock as of tonight.

I have a SG2 (international/Bell revision), definitely a great phone. The new SG2 from Telus/Rogers just seem a bit too big for me. Battery life is definitely bad though, I am still on stock kernel though (just rooted).

See I'm the opposite, I really like having a physical button. Maybe that's the former iphone user in me speaking up.

As for battery life I find the SG2 to be pretty good once you go to 2.3.4. Bell sells them with 2.3.3 and has horrendous battery drain issues.
