HTC Sensation XE Reviews

"...a top-quality remake of a top-quality Android smartphone." 5/5 stars

"The HTC Sensation XE comes extremely close to getting five out of five, but is docked half a star because of the battery that we feel spoils the experience somewhat. But other than that, we really can't recommend this handset highly enough. It's future-proof, sleek and has some amazing additions such as Beats Audio, which really push it into the premier league and beyond." 4.5/5 stars

"We find the HTC Sense 3.0 UI on the Sensation XE – it’s the only overlay that changes every nook and cranny of stock Android, and integrates beautiful graphics with useful functionality in one seamless, coherent experience. " 8.5/10

"Do bear in mind though, you won't get access to the Beats Audio sound enhancements if you choose to deviate from HTC's default apps. Use the Galley video player and you can toggle Beats Audio. But if you decide that you don't like HTC's media provision, or you want to expand video format support with a third-party player, then you'll lose that Beats Audio enhancement. " 4/5 stars

"The XE is not a replacement of the original Sensation. It's a special edition with very specific targeting."

"Best described as a minor upgrade to its predecessor, the HTC Sensation XE represents decent value for money but doesn't manage to blow away the original model." 3.8/5 stars

"Altogether, the camera counts firmly against the XE and feels way more outdated than the display panel."
