HTC Sensation XE with Beats Audio review

 

We had some hands-on time with HTC's new European Android flagship a short while back, but it wasn't nearly enough to answer all our questions about how

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

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 Sensation XE Review

 

Exceptionally sensational! That is what the Sensation XE is, well and truly. It carries forward the good looks of the elder cousin, and just improves on that a teeny bit. The performance is massively different, and network loss/ death grip issues...

Feels classy, expensive and solid, Very good performance, Display good for multimedia viewing, Battery life helped immensely by the bigger battery

Quite pricey

HTC Sensation XE review - Beats Audio and speed

 

The HTC Sensation XE is an updated version of HTC's excellent Sensation dual-core Android smartphone, now packing a slightly faster processor, slightly larger battery, some red highlights, and a pair of Beats Audio in-ear headphones. While the updates...

Speedy 1.5GHz processor, large qHD display, HTC Sense 3.0 user interface

No metal unibody, only 1GB useable internal storage, perhaps too large for some people

Review of the HTC Sensation XE Beats Audio

So where does the Sensation XE stand? Well for starters those who already have a Sensation need not bother with this because there’s nothing new on offer here. Whatever gimmicks HTC has used in XE i.e 1.5Ghz CPU and Beats audio can easily be achieved...

HTC Sensation XE Mobile Phone Review

 

Better looking, better sounding and better performing.

Looks great, Fast performance, beats audio and headset

Camera not as impressive anymore, gets a little hot

Along with the speedier processor, HTC has also upped the battery capacity on the Sensation XE. The original came with a 1520mAH while the new one has a 1730mAH battery- not the highest capacity battery we’ve seen on a phone (which has to the Motorola...

HTC Sensation XE review

 

HTC handset gets rebooted with Ice Cream Sandwich

Updated to Ice Cream Sandwich ; Great screen ; Contacts and social networking implementation is top-notch ; Fantastic keyboard

Seven home screens not expandable ; Autofocus can be erratic ; Resizing video for MMS issue

The HTC Sensation XE built well on the success of the original Sensation, but since the launch of Ice Cream Sandwich toting handsets at MWC 2012 it is in need of an update to keep up with the pack.
