Excerpt: "I upgraded from the HTC desire. I was looking for a phone that did everything the Desire could do, but with a better camera. I think I have got what I was looking for. The phone has a great screen. It is large and the graphics are clear. I am impressed with the camera. I haven't printed off any images yet, but the colour on the screen is amazing, very clear and bright. The battery seems to last well. Even with using it lots in the first few ...
Pros: Large screen, easy to use, good battery, customisable, 8 mp camera, 7 home screens
Cons: Has restarted itself several times since I have had it (10 days)
Summary: With the right contract and carrier, this is an iPhone beater. Hell, it's an everything-beater. This is without a doubt the most sensational phone I've ever got my mitts on. Its processing power matches that of the most expensive Android tablets available (a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, boosted to a sturdy 1.5Ghz), whilst its form factor ensures a comfortable fit in your hand and/or pocket.
Summary: I've only had this phone for a week now and couldn't be happier despite it shutting itself down on the first day. It's way faster than anything I've owned before, even faster than my laptop when connected to Wifi. I have had an HTC handset before so I knew my way around the phone but I'm quite sure anyone within hours could use it without instructions.
Quietly Brilliant! I'm loving it! - HTC Sensation XE with Beats Audio (But in White!)

Summary: My previous phone was the HTC Incredible S, which was a decent good phone. However, since the arrival of the HTC Sensation XE, I have been itching to get my hands on one, and now I finally have it, it was worth the wait especially as the white colour option (not the XL) became available recently from HTC. Most of my colleagues have the Samsung Galaxy S2, which is a good Android phone, however the plasticky build and the fact that nearly everyone has it put me off.
Out with the old (and awful blackberry), in with the new (amazing htc)

Summary: I was tied in to a contract with a blackberry bold that had some kind of hold over me for reasons I could never explain. As it began to die for the third time in about 18 months I decided it was time for a new phone, regardless of my existing contract. Whilst this review is about the phone itself, I must stress that I didn't buy it from amazon and got an amazing deal for a new contract elsewhere.
Summary: I've been using this phone for about a month now. I have found it to be fast, effective and reliable. Android runs without problems and web sites are very quick to load, so long as you have access to a decent wifi access point. The display is superb, as is the sound quality. Battery life is realistically no more than a day with extended use, although this is not a problem in practice - it just means that I charge it each night.
Summary: Having had this phone for two weeks now, I thought I'd write a detailed review for anyone thinking of buying this phone, from amazon or otherwise. First off, I upgraded from a HTC Wildfire to this phone, and my word the difference is noticable in everything it does. I struggle to comprehend how I put up with the Wildfire when I look back at it. Design: Personally, I love the design of the phone.
"XE features all the latest lust-worthy pieces that fit together"

Summary: The red and black color scheme, an amazing HD display, Beats audio and extremely fast performance (the fastest phone thus far) come together in an ergonomic design to create a fantastic finished product. While almost comical at this point, the HTC Sensation XE is now my favorite Android device in the world.
Pros: An amazing HD display, Beats audio and extremely fast performance
Cons: Video sharing, unable to resize video to bring it under MMS size, it's a blip on an almost unblemished app
