  • Conclusion: We say kudos to HTC for trying to diversify the Android lineup branching into specialized smartphones like the audio-oriented Sensation XE, an upgrade to one already excellent flagship. However, we are not impressed by the minor improvements.
  • Pros: Comes with a high quality set of headphones, Very good background noise cancellation for outgoing calls, Both processor and battery capacity are upped compared to the original Sensation, Cool red highlights set the Sensation XE design apart, Stereo audio recording during 1080p HD video capture
  • Cons: Beats Audio isn't much else than a sound profile, The microphones are set on too sensitive while recording video, No FLAC format support, The picture quality from the 8MP camera could be better

3 January 2012
  • Conclusion: Of HTC's two Beats phones, the Sensation XE adds a better screen, faster processor and expandable memory to an 8-megapixel camera, plus it good sounds, all for more or less the same price. If you don't actually need a huge screen, this is the one to go for.
  • Pros: Good screen. Beats Audio technology. Fast processor. Good 8-megapixel camera
  • Cons: May be too big for some pockets

  • Conclusion: That extra speed may become useful over the course of a two year contract, and the inclusion of a decent set of headphones for not very much more money is welcome.

  • Conclusion: 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.
  • Pros: Powerful handset, great audio performance with great headphones in the box, good screen, responsive camera
  • Cons: wkward timing means it doesn't deliver the latest from Sense or Android, Beats isn't integrated throughout, sometimes Sense doesn't make sense
