Overview of HTC Sensation XE with Beats Audio

The HTC Sensation XE with Beats Audio is the new and improved version of the HTC Sensation. The Sensation XE is the first handset to be released since HTC's announcement last month that it had bought a majority share in the Dr. Dre owned company. Let's take a look at what else you'll get should you decide to buy the HTC Sensation XE.

The HTC Sensation XE picks up where its predecessor left off, but offers some impressive enhancements. The dual-core processor has been improved to 1.5GHz, the battery life has been increased and needless to say, there is Beats Audio hardware and in-ear headphones included with the device.

The audio quality on the original Sensation is good to say the least, but with Beats Audio hardware and earphones, the Sensation XE promises to deliver studio quality performance. Upon plugging in the Beats Audio earphones, the XE switches to a profile that utilises the Beats Audio hardware, delivering the best possible sound in a smartphone.

The battery power of the Sensation XE also receives a welcome boost, bumped up to 1730mAh, which delivers up to 550 minutes of talk time. However, it's not just the internals that have had a redesign - the new Sensation XE features a black and red colour scheme to keep its appearance synonymous with the Beats Audio brand.

The remainder of the HTC Sensation XE feature set remains the same as that of its predecessor; HTC Android 2.3 Gingerbread with HTC Sense, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, 4.3" qHD touch screen and DLNA. There's also an 8MP camera with auto focus and dual LED flash that can record 1080p video, a front facing camera and TV out via MHL.

"Had this for about a week now and it just keeps getting better and better. Speed is amazing, i'm a fairly heavy multitasker but nothing seems to faze this thing. Soft keyboard is the best I've used, really benefits from that extra screen real estate. Speaking of the screen, it's bright and clear in all lights and makes for comfortable reading. Battery life is better than par for the course, comfortably lasting a day of fairly heavy use with room to spare. I'd say two days is a definate possibility if you're not fiddling with it every five minutes.

The device is nicely weighty and I while slim, it may be on the large side for some people. If like me however, you find the soft keyboard on smaller phones a fiddly nightmare you're going to love it."

"Incredible phone apart from one major defect...dust has appeared beneath the screen!!!!! This was a common problem with the HTC Sensation and I thought that this would have been sorted by HTC for the Sensation XE, but it does not appear to be the case. Such a pity to have to return this phone :'( Unfortunately I cannot recommend this phone. Should you get dust under your screen the problem will only get worse..."

"Just received my Sensation XE. Upgraded from a Desire HD. The Sensation XE is awesome! I love the gorilla glass feel. The form fit is solid and exquisite. The speed of the dual core processor is a dream. Music through the Dr. Dre beats is everything promised. I am in love!"
