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
27 April 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

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.

HTC Sensation XL review

expertreviews.co.uk
19 December 2011
  • Excerpt: It may share a name with the HTC Sensation but with a different display and processor this isn't a simple update. Screen size is up from 4.3in to 4.7in and instead of a dual-core 1.2GHz processor the XL uses a single-core 1.5GHz chip. It's also marketed as having Beats Audio, and it comes with a pair of in-ear Beats headphones. The 'urBeats' headphones are a cut above the usual plastic headphones you get with a new handset, but they aren't anything special.

  • 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...

  • Conclusion: There is a lot about the HTC Sensation XL that we like. Watching videos and listening to music is an absolute joy. In fact the Android experience is a joy, be it browsing the Internet, flicking through Twitter or a chasing stars on Angry Birds. Many of the day-to-day things just feel and look good on the Sensation XL because of the size it offers. But what it lacks are the elements that take this from being purely a big phone, to an exceptional phone.
  • Pros: It's difficult not to get excited about the screen size, HTC Sense 3.5 is more refined than ever before, videos look great, Beats Audio and urBeats headphones make for a great music experience
  • Cons: No microSD card slot, screen resolution should be higher, hardware specs limit the overall potential of the device
