All this Beats Audio talk would stand for nothing if it didn't translate into an enhanced music experience, so rest assured, the HTC Sensation XE not only ships with Beats Audio ibeats in ear buds, but is also optimized specifically for them. In fact, plug in the supplied headphones and the Beats Audio logo magically appears in the notifications bar to let you know that you're having a premium audio experience. Don't like what you hear? Fret not, simply uncheck the Beats Audio option and you'll get back to your standard HTC output, complete with optional SRS audio enhancement.
The rest of the phone is predictably similar to the HTC Sensation, 4.3" qHD Super LCD screen, four capacitive buttons below, 8GB of internal memory and HTC's trademark solid build quality. Given the HTC Sensation being such a solid phone, the prospects for the HTC Sensation XE are looking good. We should be getting a review unit in the coming weeks, so keep an eye on PhoneArena.com for a review and our verdict on the first HTC Beats Audio device.

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..

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.

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?
