Samsung Galaxy S II. The Blaze is also more compact and lighter than the HTC Sensation 4G (5 x 2.6 x 0.4 inches, 5 ounces). The smaller footprint makes this handset easier to operate with one hand.
The Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G draws somewhat from the Samsung Galaxy S II's design. The front is black with dark chrome accents surrounding a glossy 3.9-inch display. It's the handset's rear rubber panel that helps it stand out. While there's no lip like the Galaxy S II, it feels very comfortable to hold. The grippy material is emblazoned with a white Galaxy S insignia. The 5-megapixel camera, LED flash and twin speakers sit along the top in a dark gray brushed metal strip.
