Summary: This review needs updating as the Sensation XE now has Android 4 (ICS)/ Sense 3.6 (for most networks). As that is one of the two negative points in the 'Good/ Bad' section (and I think that the weight is 'reassuringly expensive'), please revisit the relevant section(s) so that potential buyers see...
Great phone - its like discovering the joys of Android all over again
29 March 2012
Summary: Prior to this phone I had the HTC Desire, what could probably be referred to as a 1st generation android device. In a mere 18 months the phone went from being a game changer to a slow, unresponsive and fiddly phone.
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.
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: 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.
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...
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.
Summary: Despite of having Sense 3.5 running on the other Smartphones developed by the company, the XE is smartly engrossed with Sense 3.0, which offers exclusive apps and widgets that you wonâ??t locate on any other Android phone.
Summary: Music lovers will certainly appreciate the vast improvement in audio quality, but thats not the only feather in the Sensation XEs cap. HTC has wisely taken this opportunity to give the phone a welcome speed boost over the original model, pushing up that dual-core CPU from 1.2GHz to an impressive...
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.
Summary: well, one week ago. I was still struggling about which one to choose, the iphone 4s or this sensation xe. I chose this one finally. And two days later, it arrived. The phone is such a master piece. The wifi hotspot is my favourite bit.
