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

HTC Sensation XE

 

Build, smart branding, inclusion of iBeats buds, fast and intuitive, clean, clever interface

Video struggles with dark scenes, over-cooked bass, battery life isn’t great

Good but not great, this is a decent package let down by its bottom end

HTC Sensation XE review

 

Is Beats tech enough to propel the HTC Sensation XE to smartphone stardom?

Bass-blasting Beats Audio ; Speedy performance ; Good build quality

Light on built-in storage ; Non-AMOLED screen ; Beats doesn’t suit all music

Hands-on: HTC Sensation XE Ice Cream Sandwich review - Pocket-lint

 

We've got our hands on the HTC Sensation XE Ice Cream Sandwich update that rolls in Android 4 and Sense 3.6. This isn't a leaked ROM, it's the bona fide

HTC Sensation XE

 

We've seen a trend in 2011 that we didn't really see in previous years: the "update phone". HTC kicked off 2011 with a wide range of "S" models and we've had "plus" models from Motorola and Samsung. The pace of change sees Android manufacturers...

Powerful handset, great audio performance with great headphones in the box, good screen, responsive camera

wkward timing means it doesn't deliver the latest from Sense or Android, Beats isn't integrated throughout, sometimes Sense doesn't make sense

The HTC Sensation XE, the first Beats handset, perhaps should be something more than just an upgrade. But that's a position it can never really escape from. It feels like the Sensation released back in May 2011, but then that was a fantastic phone.

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.

HTC Sensation XE Review: In Depth

 

The HTC Sensation XE is essentially a sexed-up, turbo-charged version of the original HTC Sensation. The XE features big Beats Audio branding, an improved sound profile for compatible headphones, a faster…

Faster processor ; Overall slicker experience than the original HTC Sensation ; Huge 4.3-inch screen is great for web browsing ; Powerful 8-megapixel camera

Not running latest version of HTC Sense ; Small amount of internal memory ; Battery life isn’t great

HTC Sensation XE review

 

Take the original HTC Sensation, add a splash of black and red paint and a Beats Audio logo and you end up with the HTC Sensation XE. Best described as a minor upgrade to its predecessor, the HTC Sensation XE represents decent value for money but...

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...
