Summary: It’s a battle between titans as the LG Optimus EX faces off with HTC’s Sensation XL in an all-out competition of epic proportions. The massive Sensation XL is a great update of sorts to its younger brother, the HTC Sensation.
Summary: The HTC Sensation XL comes with Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), Sense UI, a 4.7-inch WVGA display, a 1.5GHz single-core processor, 16GB or 32GB of internal memory, an 8-megapixel rear camera with dual LED flash, and a front-facing camera.
Conclusion: The HTC Sensation XL is a solid and high quality phone with skull-splittingly loud audio playback through the supplied Beats Audio headgear. You get a good camera that copes well in most conditions and the fast processor means that there’s virtually no shutter lag.
Pros: Great camera, Good amount of internal storage, High end audio performance, Beats Audio urBeats headphones included
Cons: No micro SD card slot, Not the highest resolution screen, Perhaps too big for some
Summary: We almost like the HTC Sensation XL. It’s stylish, easy to use, has a great camera, the large screen has some benefits and the Beat Audio headphones we know will appeal to some. However, you pay for the privilege of getting those headphones, and on most other fronts this phone just doesn’t add up.
Pros: Bright, clear screen, Good stills camera, HTC Sense 3.5, Great audio quality with Beats, Comfortable to use despite its size
Cons: Some performance issues, Lower-specced than its brothers, More expensive than its brothers, No microSD card slot, Terrible video quality
Summary: The HTC Sensation XL has some good points and also no so good points, the camera is fine for photos, but not so good for recording video, the display on the device is pretty good though and this is one of the devices plus points.
Summary: The HTC Sensation XL bears little resemblance to the original Sensation, nor the previously reviewed HTC Sensation XE. While the XE is essentially the original Sensation tweaked up with Beat’s Audio, the XL walks its own path instead.
Summary: Overall opinion: Definitely one of the top entertainment mobile phones. Only the 3G-max download speeds limit this device, and when compared with all the other features you get, that’s not a hardship!
