HTC Sensation XE - Review

In this review, we will talk about HTC Sensation XE, running on the Android platform.

The HTC Sensation XE features a solid and really sleek build with simple to use multimedia functions for your use. It comes with a good display screen that gives out excellent and bright colored images. The HTC Sensation XE carries a MicroSD card under its battery cover, so easy swapping has gone out of question. HTC Sensation XE is a sleek phone, measuring up to 126 mm in length, 65 mm in width and in terms of thickness, and the phone measures just around 11 mm. The phone is marked by attractiveness alongside being slim. The phone weighs only 151g. Beats logo and red highlights, yet those make quite a lot of difference and, in our opinion, make the phone a lot better looking. For more information, just go through the review.

Now in the review, we will discuss some of the features of the phone.

HTC Sensation XE carries a big 4.3’’ display screen, having a resolution of 540x960 pixels. The touchscreen display screen on the cellular is capacitive, not resistive, which makes it very responsive. We also realized that the display magnificently sharp and accurate but not really as great as Super AMOLDED display screens. Reading through textual content is really an easy job to do on the cellular, whereas viewing images and WebPages seem to be clear. The interface of HTC Sensation XE is very easy to use, you can familiarize with it quickly. When you can get through the interface, you will discover a lot of apps which can help you enjoy watching movies and even playing music. 

Thanks to HTC Sense UI v3.5, the navigation on HTC Sensation XE is pretty simple. The device runs on a very powerful 1.5 GHz (dual-core) processor, because of which, tossing between apps and screens seemed to be very smooth. The overall performance of the cellular is extremely good; it is very instant, responsive and fast. Multi-tasking on the cellular is also quite an easy and comfortable task. The device comes up with YourBeats headset with an in-ear design, which has an advantage over the regular ear-bud design - noise insulation. The headset sports media controls buttons - next and previous buttons, plus a play/pause button that also works as an answer key.

Now in the review, we will take a look at the camera on the cellular.

HTC Sensation XE features a 8 MP camera with dual-LED flash by which, it can take good quality pictures even in dark environments. Auto-focus, touch-focus, face detection and instant capturing are the key characteristics of it features. The camera is also capable of recording HD videos with Full-HD 1080p @ 30 fps as well as 720p @ 30 fps with stereo sound. The image quality of the phone is quite good. However, images turn out bit underexposed and colors are duller than we would’ve liked. There is a front-facing VGA camera too, right above the display screen, suited to video calling purposes.

Now the review will discuss the other features of the phone.

HTC Sensation XE operates on Android 2.3.4 (Gingerbread) by means of that, you will get access to stuff just like Gmail, an app for YouTube, Quick Office for Android as well as others. Furthermore, at the time Android 2.3.4 (Gingerbread) runs on the cellular, the browser of the phone comes in complete support for Adobe flash 10.1. WebPages which are Flash-heavy could be accessed without having much of lagging, and that is another pleaser. As being the Smartphone runs on Android Os, you'll have the option of syncing with Gmail, IMAP and exchange accounts. The device can also be capable of integrating with social networking sites. Some other options that come with the phone contain Bluetooth v3.0, WI-Fi. The device comes in support of wide range of music and video codec’s like MP3, AAC, WAV and MPEG-4.The phone also have a support for DLNA, which enables content streaming with other devices that are DLNA enabled. The device also equipped with the feature to use it as Wi-Fi Hotspot.

To conclude off of this review, we’d suggest that HTC Sensation XE is a Smartphone that offer some great features all around, the camera on the cellular is good, and so can be its display screen. No doubt, The HTC Sensation XE is one of the best Android Smartphones available in the market.
