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: 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: 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.
Summary: I was extremely pleased with this mobile phone when i purchased it. It looks nice, feels nice sounds nice and does everything you could want from a smart phone. After 7 / 8 months however i started to have issues with the battery running out very quickly. The battery indicator would say there was still half a battery left and then the handset would turn off - sometimes in the middle of a call.
Summary: This phone was great for a few months after I bought it, after that, it started to go run very slowly, freezes often, sometimes the screen won't unlock. Feels like I have bought a slow phone, when in fact the phone should be fast, I blame HTC Sense for this. Battery life is quite poor, I can charge it to full in the morning, and by the end of the day it will be dead.
A smartphone that's good at being smart, but poor as a phone

Summary: Purchased (sim free) to replace an iPhone 3GS. Very impressed with Android, especially after the upgrade to ICS which this phone seems to cope with very well. While not as intuitive to use as the iPhone, it's much more customizable, so if you're disposed to 'tweaking' or setting your phone up just as you want it, Android is a better system IMO.
