Long awaited this phone & its lived up to expectations
16 April 2014
Summary: Read a lot of reviews about this phone when it came out almost 3 years ago now but couldn't buy it at the time. So it was a bit of a risk getting this now, would it be as good the phones out today, can it at least match the crazy specs of today's phones? Yes it definitely has! Had a Htc Desire for 3 years and was waiting long to upgrade to something that worked perfectly skipped buying the sensation, snsation xe, xl, galaxy s2, s3, s4 and then really wanted to go after...
Summary: Bought this phone from vendor fulfilled by Amazon. Phone is brilliant with android ICS update installed. However location / people app do not show location as it is powered by Route66. Apparently the newer HTCs do not support the route66 anymore or vice versa. I downloaded Navigate6 but although it works on it's own, it would not show as a default setting on favourite people app. So far I cannot figure out.
Summary: This smartphone was supposed to be the fastest of its generation however it lags so much that you cannot even make a simple call or send a message. It was almost never responsible to commands and HTC Sense really made things worse. Even if you want to by a cheap smartphone like i did there are so many better choices than this phone, i would not suggest it to anyone.
Summary: If buying this (or any!) smart phone from International country, it will more than likely have been "Rooted" Or Hacked. This means that the original Software has been removed and replaced by another version. This version doesn't allow offical HTC updates to be applied.
Summary: I own this SXE, my SXE is white one. first impression is great,. i have it just for 6-7 month, but the plastic case is cracking everywhere, small cracking, and somehow i dont understand why it became like that, because it's cracking without any scratch, and the metal case, i dropped my phone a month ago, maybe 80 - 90 cm, but my metal case is dent, i wonder how bad is the quality of my back case, the front one is great, but the back, it's horrible..
Pros: Camera, Screen ( because of it's S-LCD and Gorilla Glass ), The Unique Case
Cons: The Battery, and the quality of the metal case and plastic in the back., the performance. it's so slow for now.
Summary: The phone when I got it was fantastic, Extremely good condition however after 8 hours the battery gave out and there wasn't a phone shop in my town that sold HTC Sensation XE batteries. So in my desperation for a new phone bought one at a local shop and returned this one. The suppliers where top notch regarding there customer services. Refund was fast and they did offer to replace the battery for nothing. It was just a shame that I bought my current phone.
Summary: I bought this product as a gift to my self when I completed my phD and I was so happy with it the first couple of months I had it because it really has fast processor and with the beats earphone even the not so good music you get on the radio sounds pretty good with this one. The only problem with this apparatus is the build.
