Summary: HTC has decided to get all hippity-hop happy with its latest smart phone, the HTC Sensation XE . It's a refreshed version of the brilliant HTC Sensation that packs Beats audio tech, as well as a faster processor and improved battery life. The HTC Sensation XE comes with a set of in-ear Beats by Dr. Dre headphones.
Summary: The latest handset to have come up from brand HTC is the all new HTC Sensation XE . Basically, it’s the same HTC Sensation with couple of changes and updates. This is the sole reason that it still includes the Sensation name. However, the model has gone through a serious makeover in terms of its features and specs and this is why it has been creating quite a stir these days.
Excerpt: 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.

Summary: 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 its appeal. Ultimately, the HTC Sensation XE is a very good smartphone but not a great one.
Pros: Black and red colour is attractive, Included urBeats in-ear headphones, Unibody aluminium design
Cons: Not as snappy as we'd have liked, Very little improvements over original, Exclusive to Vodafone
Excerpt: 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 FOTA update from HTC, going out in a select preview programme to a lucky few. HTC has told us that Sense 3.6 and Sense 4, as seen on the new HTC One X, were developed in parallel and Sense 3.6 is going to roll out to the Sensation and Sensation XE.
