HTC Sensation XE Review


Presenting the Sensation XE, HTC's attempt at reviving the former''s name and this time they've come with reinforcements from Beats Audio. To give them some credit, at least they haven't thrown in a faster CPU and called it a day unlike some (yes, I'm...

At a street price of Rs. 33,990, it’s about Rs. 3000 more than the old Sensation. But, for that extra money, you do get a bigger battery, more onboard storage for apps, a slightly faster CPU and Beats in-earphones, which in itself is worth roughly Rs....

HTC Sensation 4G (T-Mobile)


Big, beautiful, high-res screen. Excellent Web browsing performance. Good-looking, useful Android skin

1080p video recording has some glitches. Can't trigger voice dialing over Bluetooth

The touch-screen, Android-based HTC Sensation is T-Mobile's biggest and best smartphone yet.

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 hands-on: First look


Out of one party and into the other - HTC is showing off yet more hot gadgetry and we're going hands-on with it. After yesterday's Rhyme launch, today we'll be playing with an even hotter piece of smartphone technology. The Sensation XE is not only the...

HTC Sensation 4G


Earlier this year, we gave a positive review to the HTC Inspire 4G on AT&T. Well, if you liked what that phone had to offer, you're going to love this one. Building on much of the design sense of recent HTC handsets, the Sensation 4G on T-Mobile is one...

4.3-inch qHD (540x960px) display ; 1.2GHz dual-core processor packs power ; HTC Sense 3.0 has a ton of useful new features ; Good battery life

Only 1GB of free internal storage ; Weak rear speaker ; Rounded screen can reflect light oddly ; New Sense 3.0 unlock screen is sometimes difficult to use

Consider us impressed. Aside from a few small issues with the shape of its screen and the low amount of internal storage, the HTC Sensation 4G outpaces and outclasses almost every other Android phone.

HTC Sensation 4G Review - A Sensational Smartphone


I like what HTC has been up to lately. Rather than fighting a race to the bottom with endless soulless variants of the same piece of hardware in a crowded (and fiercely competitive) Android handset market, it's trying to grow beyond just being a...

HTC Sensation vs. Galaxy S II vs. Optimus 2X: Head to head


Time to lace up the gloves and step inside the ropes again. A new dual-core competitor, the HTC Sensation, is challenging the current crop of flagship droids with its fast new chipset, high-res screen, sharp-eyed camera and that classic HTC charm much...

HTC Sensation review: Front-page stuff


HTC burst right onto the dual-core scene with a phone that's set to be an Android sensation. They've gone all out with the design of that one - from screen, through camera to the powerful chipset. No cutting corners, no compromise on features.

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 ; 1.2 GHz dual Scorpion CPUs,...

Serious "death grip" issue with Wi-Fi radio ; Less than impressed with the screen's outdoor performance ; Performance not quite as convincing as other dual-cores ; No dedicated camera key ; microSD is under the battery cover ; No unibody construction...

Update, 02.08.2011: We've recently started making video versions of our trademark reviews. The video reviews summarize our review findings and are generally less technical and easier to swallow. So here it is, the HTC Sensation video review.
