  • Summary: The HTC Sensation XL is a classy music phone but it struggles to stand out from the increasingly competitive Android pack, despite its huge screen. There's nothing horrible about it, but several areas have room for improvement.
  • Cons: Screen isn't particularly hi-res; average processing speed; too many apps pre-installed; styling won't appeal to everyone.

HTC Sensation XL Android smartphone review - 4.7 inches of touchscreen!

MobileBurn
29 November 2011
  • Summary: The HTC Sensation XL is yet another iteration of HTC's high-end Sensation handset. This time, however, the processor is single-core only, and the screen resolution has dropped to WVGA, despite being larger in size than the regular Sensation's display. The XL comes with Beats Audio integration, as I imagine most of HTC's handsets in the future will going forward.
  • Pros: Large screen, attractive design, HTC Sense 3.0 user interface enhancements
  • Cons: Low pixel density, no expandable storage, very large, single-core CPU, mediocre camera

HTC Sensation XL Phone from Three

  • Summary: A lot of phones have naff sound and provide a naff set of cheap earbuds to allow you to suffer in private. Here the sound is better and they provide a set of Monster Beats by Dr Dre so listening to music can be a pleasure.

  • Conclusion: HTC Sensation XL’s keyboard actually comprises of the major portion of the screen with the square buttons placed quite scientifically for better user-experience. People who don’t like touchscreen keyboards doodling will definitely fall for this phone. Where it excels is the option for extra keyboards with features like Swiftkey and Swype and other smart keys.
  • Pros: Sleek design, Impressive audio, Attractive display

HTC Sensation XL review: Is a 4.7in screen too big for a smartphone? HTC is bravely attempting to find out

Good Gear Guide.au
11 March 2012
  • Summary: The HTC Sensation XL is one of the best Android phones of the year. The lack of expandable memory is an issue, but if you can get your head around this, you're left with a phone that has excellent build quality, a huge screen and good battery life. The included Beats headphones only sweeten the deal.
  • Pros: Excellent design and build quality, Beats Audio and included Beats headphones, Good battery life
  • Cons: No expandable memory, Lower resolution screen than competitors, Exclusive to Vodafone

  • Excerpt: Music fans will enjoy the audio extras that make sound quality great – but it’s a shame the storage capacity is so limited Not really made for small hands, although the shiny white front and aluminium reverse look stylish. That big display suggests this is a power drainer – but battery life is okay and you’ll be charging each night as you would on most smartphones The XL proves speedy and accomplished even though it doesn’t have a dual-core chip onboard HTC once again...
