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 XL

The Sensation XL does plenty right, with an impressive screen and a strong web browsing performance. But, marketed as an audio champion, less than 13GB of storage is a joke. read more →

  • Web browsing on the 4.7-inch screen is a joy
  • The Beats headphones are substantial step above typical in-the-box fare
  • Limited built-in storage with no option to expand
  • Underwhelming video quality
  • Short battery life

HTC's created a big Sensation with this 4.7-inch beast

Speaking of which, the price is the biggest stumbling block for Sensation XL as it stands. As a mid-range, big-screen handset, HTC would be onto a genuine winner here. But the price puts it in the firing line of the Sensation XE, the Samsung Galaxy S2 and the iPhone 4S. And, frankly, it comes out at the bottom of that list. read more →

  • Bright, clear screen
  • Good stills camera
  • HTC Sense 3.5
  • Great audio quality with Beats
  • Comfortable to use despite its size
  • Some performance issues
  • Lower-specced than its brothers
  • More expensive than its brothers
  • No microSD card slot
  • Terrible video quality

HTC Sensation XL Review

If you have larger hands, and are only looking at the hardware specs, you’ll think that you’ve finally found the fairly compact, slim and affordable Android handset with a huge screen you’ve been waiting for. Single-core chipset, average pixel density and lack of memory expansion slot should mean a 4.7” screen for the masses, but HTC doesn’t think so. It is priced as much as the high-ends with better (yet smaller) screens, and dual-core chipsets. read more →

  • High-quality iBeats headphones
  • Large 4.7” screen
  • New HTC Sense 3.5 is more streamlined and runs great on the single-core chipset
  • Same or higher price as models with better features
  • Low-resolution screen, single-core processor and no memory card slot
  • Mediocre camera and camcorder
  • Power/lock and volume buttons are too flush with the surface, and with very shallow travel

HTC Sensation XL

The HTC Sensation XL is not available Stateside just yet, but we wanted to get our hands on this large new Android phone. It comes complete with a pair of Beats headphones along with an interesting Beats audio algorithm that activates when we plug the earbuds in. read more →
