HTC Sensation XL Review

 

HTC has launched their new Sensation XE, which was soon followed by the pricier HTC Sensation XL. Considering that there is no dearth of high-end smartphones, these days, HTC will have to try hard to impress people with the new XL model, which rivals...

The HTC Sensation XL is both good, yet disappointing. On one hand, it’s a great looking device, which does everything you want it to. The issue is with its price and what it offers for that price. HTC sells the Sensation XL in the market for around...

HTC Sensation XL review: Music and the beast

 

They say music soothes even the savage beast. In the case of the HTC Sensation XL, it just makes it cooler. The Sensation XL shares its design and mammoth 4.7" screen with the Titan, but the XL is part of the Android squad and packs a lyrical iBeats...

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...

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

The Sensation XL uses almost exactly the same hardware as the Titan - the major difference is that the XL packs four Android capacitive keys and there's no hardware shutter key, but that's about it

Seldom has the name of a phone been so obviously related to its proposition as with the HTC Sensation XL. Bearing a supersized 4.7-inch touchscreen along with Beats Audio, this “extra large” Android smartphone should arguably be the pinnacle of HTC's...

At times it seems like HTC is trying to follow Samsung’s strategy, with a phone for each and every possible price-point. Unfortunately, Samsung has a direct tap on the latest and greatest display, processor and memory hardware, while HTC is dependent...

HTC Sensation XE with Beats Audio reviewQualcomm's 1.5GHz dual-core MSM8660 destroys the competition in majestic benchmark runHTC to

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

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.

HTC Sensation XL hands-on: First look

 

Today HTC introduced the second member of its Beats droid family, making both geeks and audiophiles tremble with excitement. The HTC Sensation XL is one multimedia beast with its Dr. Dre-inspired audio, impressively spec'd...

Granted, the single-core CPU won't give you boasting rights with your geeky friends and screen density could be pushed a bit higher. But with this one it's not so much about having the best specs on the market - it's about having specs that make sense....

HTC Sensation XL Review

 

In our HTC Sensation XL review we look at the larger version if the HTC Sensation, which comes with a larger display and some upgrades over the original HTC Sensation.

The HTC Sensation XL has some good points and also no so good points, the camera is fine for photos, but not so good for recording video, the display on the device is pretty good though and this is one of the devices plus points.
