Summary: This phone is a fantastic smartphone, however battery life is not up to par. You might want to invest in an extra battery to carry around just in case. It takes too long to charge & dies too quickly. Also, this is a little thing that I've read happens to all Sensation XEs including mine. There's a problem w/ the vibration. It turns on and off, most of the time it doesn't even function even when you set it. Overall, this product has many great features.
Great phone for the price but may have design defect. Too risky to buy

Summary: This is a pretty decent phone. I bought two, and at first it was working really well. But after a week, one of the phone's screen suddenly stopped working. No cracks, drops, or water damage to the phone. Looked it up online and found out it was a common problem with the phone due to bad designing. Had to return it and didn't want to bother getting another one because it might have the same problem again. The other one works fine, so far (4 weeks in).
Summary: I was really excited to get this phone, but am feeling quite let down by the battery. Even if I do nothing on the phone, it still needs recharging at the end of the day. This is after I have taken all the recommended suggestions for minimising power usage. Seriously, it should last at least a couple of days on one charge with minimal usage. Also, it takes an eternity to recharge.
Summary: i simply love this phone,, it does everything i need it to do and more. its a good looking phone as well. PROS -It has dual core, 1.5Ghz processor ,there is no lag and I have been on flash heavy sites, been playing lots of different games which demand alot from the processor . -The display is very crisp. Colors are sharp and very nice. -Audio quality is very good. The beats setting gives you more bass which I like. -Its metallic finish is simply perfection.
Summary: I was debating between this phone, the Sensation and the Sensation XL. I wasn't sure I wanted a white phone so I didn't go for the XL, the Sensation is supposed to have a slower processor and XE looks consistent and comes with Dre head phones so I chose this phone once I saw how the desktop looked. You see I'm coming from a Blackberry Torch 2 so my eyes ache for a big screen, better browsing and a better graphical experience to say the least.
Summary: Just received the phone and have not used it enough yet to review everything. The phone itself should be great, had good reviews on the web. I gave it four stars because of these things: 1- It's made in china. 2- You need to have nails to open the battery cover. You need to push and hold down the release then pull off the cover using other finger's nail. I hate that 3- It does not have US English. 4- It's not a US version neither a European version.
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.
