Default sensation vs desire 500, what should buy?

hey guys, I have to choose a thing:
htc sensation or desire 500?
I had the sensation, so I know what to expect...but can't say that about the 500...I never tried it, so I don't know how it really is
500 features a snapdragon 200, that is newer than the sensation's s3, but is an entry level cpu...against the 1,5 year ago top qualcomm cpu...
about screen sensation is better for sure...
battery goes to 500, also camera I think, more recent...
software obviously 500 has the last official sense (custom roms solve anything in this case)

but I have to hear someone that just bought the 500...
how is the performance? I am not sure about it, does the sensation soc work overall better? even with 0,76mb ram?
or the 500 is newer and more optimised, with a recent os and technology, so beats the old sensation?

thanks for your answers in advantage

Yeah but the soc is performing poorly...well, really I don't know! Maybe someone that owns 500 could tell me "no they are just the same"...but according on what I read on the net is a bad performong CPU...
About the support sensation has a rich xda dev section roms are good, and even if they are not official I think that the software is not the first thing to count about
