HTC Sensation XE Hands-on

The HTC Sensation is still one of the best phones on the market so why are HTC already releasing a follow-up only months after its launch? Well it's got something to do with the sweet sound of music and its ability to generate what many refer to as "ka-ching!"...

I like the buttons red, but that red speaker grill looks tacky.

It is it's calles the HTC Vigor ( Icredible HD, or they came up with some other possible name) but the one for Verizon has a 720p screen instead of that crappy qHD so its going to beeee SSSSIIIIICCCCKKKK! And despite what haters say the Vigor for Verizon will have Beats Audio!

Is anything from the Sensation line coming to Sprint? The EVO 3D isnt really doing it for me.

Ya I've had my eyes on that, but I've just been looking out for HTC's next top-of-the-line offering that doesn't boast 3D as the seller. 3D on it was ok,but I'm not interested really.
I'm sort of a HTC fan, I love their phones more than I do Samsung even if they are more difficult to "play" with. Their phone design and UI always have my attention but they have really fell behind with the Galaxy S II in terms of power. If I don't see anything in the coming weeks I may just have to go for the SGS II and end up putting Sense on it..

Lol the most powerful phone has really fallen behind in terms of power. Yes sense is #1 :).

are you on crack? seriously? the SGS2 fell behind in power??
ITS THE MOST POWERFUL ANDROID SMARTPHONE (and probably most powerful period) ON THE PLANET.

he meant HTC fell behind Samsung with the Galaxy S II in terms of power.

Poor wording I got it now to. Couldn't agree more painkiller

The SGS2 has a Yamaha DAC and other hardware limitations going on that make it inferior to the first gen Wolfson SGS in terms of audio auality.
So recommending a SGS2 variant makes no sense for the audiophile.
That said it remains unclear to me if the XE has a different DAC and or amp than the standard one or if the XE just has a beats equalizer preset.

Htc can do what they feel like. Galaxy S2 is the Beast
22. remixfa (Posts: 14255; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
meh. 0.3% more ghz and a slightly bigger battery still wont let it play keep up with an SGS2.

Its going to take the next Samsung phone to beat the sgs2.

wow someone don't know how to do math. It is a 25% increase in speed. You know (.3/1.2)x100=25 And raw power mean nothing when the user don't enjoy it. A few people don't like touchwiz 4.0. A few people don't like Super AMOLED screen because it has unrealistic color i.e our saturated warm color. A few people like higher resolution screen. A few people like heavier feeling phone that have a 16:9 ratio. So ya, you feel like the SGS2 is the best good for you, but this a HTC article why are you here?
