Oh, and the Atrix is not a good comparison. It uses the Pentile matrix, so it has less subpixels. The screen on the Sensation has three, while the Atrix only has two. (and the Sensation has 30% more total pixels than the GS2) That will make an impact on the 3D score, since the phone is having to work harder to fill those extra pixels.
Also, the Quadrant test for the released Sensation hovers from 2,200 to 2,600, which is in line with other dual core phones. In addition, the test isn't yet optimized for dual core, and especially the newer chipsets. (on dual core phones Quadrant only reads one core and doesn't read the clock speed or any other relevant information)
Benchmarks are fine for geeks, but they really don't matter. I have it installed on my G2X because I've been playing around with leaked ROMs, etc. and wanted to see the difference. But when I get my Sensation Quadrant will be conspicuously missing.

Thanks for the additional insight. I have been trying to figure what's going on for a while.
What does a Nexus S and it's ability to stream a movie trailer have anything to do with what I just posted? And the Android Central quick review of the Sensation was obviously not done by Phil, or in his house, that was the british bloke who's also a remember of the AC crew.
Yeah, SAMOLED screens do look nice, but to me the super poppy colors along with the Touchwhiz UI just look too cartoony. I wish every phone had blacks that dark though! The Sensation is also known for having terrible viewing angles, I saw a video comparison between it and the Incredible 2, and the Inc2 looked way better at more angles.
Hopefully all those benchmarking programs get a major overhaul to correctly take advantage of each new processors capabilities. Because right now they just worry potential customers like me and cause bad press for handset makers.

That would be very much appreciated!

The Sensation, however, I've heard has great battery life. Engadget's review had their unit at 30% battery life after being unplugged for 26 hours, with moderate syncing. They also said that it was clearly better at power management when idle compared to the SGII.
The Evo 3D's battery life will not be comparable, unfortunately, thanks to the WiMax radio. The Sensation sips juice thanks to the HSPA+ radio.

That still doesn't completely mean the Evo 3D'd screen will be...who knows they may have done something different. I hate how people keep talking about the Sensation I understand that it's similar, but that's it...similar they still have differences and we won't know how comparable they are to each other until the 3D comes out. I agree that comparison's will always pop up, I just wish the phone would release so that we could compare it to other phones.
