HTC Sensation XE review: The eXtended Edition

HTC have a flagship they want to keep you interested in. Easier said than done. Six months after the launch of the original, the HTC Sensation XE is raising the bar. But HTC are trying to keep a fine balance. They wouldn't want to push the envelope and make the original Sensation obsolete. The bar shouldn't be set too high either before the next flagship is due.



It's the improved sonic experience though that makes much more difference than the clock speed and battery backup. read more →

  • Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G support
  • 14.4 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA
  • 4.3" 16M-color capacitive LCD touchscreen of qHD resolution (540 x 960 pixels); Gorilla glass
  • Android OS v2.3 Gingerbread with HTC Sense 3.0
  • 1.5 GHz dual Scorpion CPUs, Adreno 220 GPU, Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8260 chipset
  • Death grip issues for both GSM and Wi-Fi radios
  • Less than impressed with the screen's outdoor performance
  • Unimpressive camera results
  • No dedicated camera key
  • microSD is under the battery cover (you'll lose all wireless signal when open the cover)

HTC Sensation XL review: Music and the beast

It's certainly nice to be able to choose between platforms. But while there aren't that many handsets to choose from in WP7 land, Androids come in all shapes and sizes.

It's not tablet-sized, but unlike actual tablets, theres always room in a pocket for the Sensation XL. And that screen is big enough for tasks like web browsing (the browser performance impressed us too) and reading texts. read more →

  • Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G support
  • 14.4 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA
  • 4.7" 16M-color capacitive S-LCD touchscreen of WVGA resolution (480 x 800 pixels)
  • Android OS v2.3 Gingerbread with HTC Sense 3.5
  • 1.5 GHz single Scorpion CPUs, Adreno 205 GPU, Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 chipset
  • WVGA resolution is low for a 4.7" screen
  • Screen's outdoor performance isn't so good
  • No dedicated camera key
  • No microSD card slot
  • No TV-Out

HTC Sensation XE with Beats Audio

The XE doesn't improve much on the first Sensation and better phones are hitting the market. Did we mention Beats Audio is a gimmick?



HTC Rezound for Verizon unveiled: Beats Audio, 4.3-inch 720p display, available November 14th for $299 Beats Electronics' Jimmy Iovine: 'we have got to get to the phone' HTC Sensation XE with Beats Audio, we go ears-on (video) The Sensation XE is a great phone, but it is no more or less great than the original Sensation. read more →

  • Good build quality and aesthetics
  • Great packaged headphones
  • Beats Audio software is largely a gimmick
  • Aging display technology
  • Camera isn't up to par, especially with video
  • The extra speed isn't worth the battery drain

HTC Sensation XE Review

We say kudos to HTC for trying to diversify the Android lineup branching into specialized smartphones like the audio-oriented Sensation XE, an upgrade to one already excellent flagship. However, we are not impressed by the minor improvements. As there is nothing new in the audio-centric hardware or the music player, the only improvements are the great in-ear headphones bundled with the phone, and the Beats Audio mode, which some will not use. read more →

  • Comes with a high quality set of headphones
  • Very good background noise cancellation for outgoing calls
  • Both processor and battery capacity are upped compared to the original Sensation
  • Cool red highlights set the Sensation XE design apart
  • Stereo audio recording during 1080p HD video capture
  • Beats Audio isn't much else than a sound profile
  • The microphones are set on too sensitive while recording video
  • No FLAC format support
  • The picture quality from the 8MP camera could be better
