HTC Sensation XL Review

 

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...

Once upon a time you got points merely for bringing extra inches to the party. Now the smartphone world has caught on to the fact that it’s not size that matters but what you do with it that really counts. The HTC Sensation XL plays the size card but...

HTC Sensation XL review

 

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 Review

 

The Sensation XL makes us scratch our heads in puzzlement. There is nothing wrong with the device, but it still doesn�t stand out in the Android crowd. Ideally, it should, because of the bigger than usual display size. The performance is quite stable...

Vibrant and crisp display, Surprisingly smooth real-life performance, Comfortable touchscreen experience, HTC Sense looks superb on the bigger real estate

Specs don�t inspire confidence, Too many apps preloaded, No memory expansion slot

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.
