The HTC Sensation features a 4.3-inch Gorilla Glass scratch resistant display, about 1.2-inch larger than the Motorola XPRT 3.1-inch display. The HTC Sensation display carries a qHD resolution of 540 x 960 pixels while the Motorola XPRT carries a typical 320 x 480 resolution pixels. With a higher resolution, you are able to see more content with less scrolling. In addition, the HTC Sensation has its trademark curved aluminum unibody that is designed to protect the display from grit when it is faced down.  

Under the hood, the HTC Sensation is powered by a speedy 1.2GHz dual-core processor and the Motorola XPRT is powered by a standard 1GHz solo-core processor. Storage-wise, the Motorola XPRT has the upper hand as it has a 2GB internal storage, double the size than the HTC Sensation can offer, which is only 1GB. However, both devices support microSD cards up to 32GB. 

Both devices are running on Android, but the HTC Sensation runs on Android version 2.3 (Gingerbread), a newer version of Android than the Motorola XPRT which running on Android version 2.2 (Froyo). The HTC Sensation has its own Sense UI skinning on top of Android while the Motorola XPRT has a lighter skinning called MotoBlur.  

For photos and videos, the HTC Sensation has a higher megapixel camera than the Motorola XPRT. The HTC Sensation has an 8-megapixel camera with dual LED flash, whereas the Motorola XPRT has a 5-megapixel camera with a single LED flash. Plus, the imager of the HTC Sensation is able to record 1080p full HD video at 30fps, while the Motorola XPRT could record 480p video at 30fps. The HTC Sensation has a VGA front facing camera for video calling, which the Motorola XPRT does not. 

These two devices support the common connectivity options such as the WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth and GPS. The advantage of the Motorola XPRT is that it supports both quad-band GSM and dual-band CDMA, which the HTC Sensation only supports quad-band GSM. 

If you are not demanding for the most powerful Android phone in the market, the Motorola XPRT should able to satisfy your daily needs on a smartphone. Plus, the Motorola XPRT is a great for messaging-centric users with the portrait QWERTY. However, if you have the extra cash to spend on, the HTC Sensation will cost about 36% more than the Motorola XPRT, but in exchange for a larger qHD display, a speedy dual-core processor and an 8-megapixel imager.
