Summary: I swore two years ago that Blackberry was the way to go and would never invest in a touch-screen smart phone after my gf had nothing but bother with a few of her previous ones. It seemed to have everything I wanted as a phone...thats right...seemed to...Now, I must be humble and eat my words - the HTC Sensation XE is (no pun intended) sensational. A super, crystal-clear picture, a great operating system and just a great build quality about it.
Summary: Okay I would like to start off by saying that I liked this phone when it first appeared on the market it has that look of quality but when you know what's inside there's some things to look at. I would like to Start of by saying I now own a xe after having the xl for 3 months Screen : The xl has a good size screen and that's about where it finishes its got very low pixel quality and is generally quite blurry comapred to the xe which has a much higher resolution screen...
Summary: Had the phone a few weeks now and love it. The phone feels sturdy and gets excellent reception, the screen is large and clear despite not being super amoled, it is also very responsive and makes the phone easy to use. I get reasonable battery life having to charge it nightly, but I do use it for a lot of web browsing and games so feel this is acceptable. The phone is quick for almost all tasks and I have had no problems with lagging applications.
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: The HTC Sensation xe was purchased 6 weeks ago so I have had plenty of time to play with it. As a smart phone it is very good and very fast with the Wifi I have never used a better phone. BUT as a reliable phone it is terrible. If set to use 3G if available or GSM, it loses signal all the time in normal places. It works well in most town or city centres but elsewhere bad. Setting it to GSM only, solves some of the problems but them you cannot use moble data.
HTC's best phone yet...if they just fix one thing!

Summary: I got this phone as an upgrade and boy was I impressed! The screen is a pleasure to look at, makes gaming and browsing the web a joy. The beats audio is truly amazing and the dual core processor really lives up to its name, no matter what you throw at the phone it can handle it. Basically a great phone and I loved using it...until I discovered just how bad the battery life is!
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.
