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 XE Review


The restless HTC has recently been branching out its smartphones, trying to fill market niches it feels are underserved, like female-oriented handsets, or phones with an enhanced audio experience. For the latter it entered into cooperation with Beats...

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

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 Android phone


HTC Sensation XE review: The original HTC Sensation gets a splash of red paint and an endorsement from Dr.Dre

Black and red colour is attractive ; Included urBeats in-ear headphones ; Unibody aluminium design

Not as snappy as we'd have liked ; Very little improvements over original ; Exclusive to Vodafone

The HTC Sensation XE is by no means a bad Android phone, but none of its features blew us away. We love the red and black design and the urBeats headphones are a nice inclusion, but average battery life and less than stellar performance detract from...

HTC Sensation XE


Dr. Dre has made his way onto mobiles with this latest Beats tie-in.

Great build, High quality bundled earphones, Fast processor

Screen quality iffy, Camera autofocus unreliable, Red trim a bit tacked-on
