For android, it means allowing yourself to do 'administrative' things like overclocking, installing custom roms... etc... You become the 'admin' of the phone. Removes all software restrictions on the phone.

Like Linux, you become root user/superuser. On iOS its called jailbreaking, but you get an app called cydia.

Sensation S is almost better imo... feels just better built, has HTC sense, and is almost identical spec-wise, just a little less RAM/flash.

I personally tend to the SGS II, especially with the Super AMOLED + screen. Also the Galaxy comes with more media hype and support from cyanogen/ XDA developers. Not saying that the HTC doesnt however if you want something cool its more likely to show up on a Galaxy since its widely known.

Whatever you want really... There pretty much identical spec/performance wise.

Put cyanogen mod on it, pretty sure they are close to releasing a stable rom for the gsii
