A lot of phones have naff sound and provide a naff set of cheap earbuds to allow you to suffer in private. Here the sound is better and they provide a set of Monster Beats by Dr Dre so listening to music can be a...

Overall, we found the Sensation XL to be a solid offering by HTC. What can we say, we are a sucker for stylish white smartphones and the Sensation XL earned one brownie point from us in that department...

Unfortunately though there are key elements that prevent this good phone, from being an exceptionally good phone. The specs list means this high-price-tag Android smartphone is already outdated by today’s standard of the platform, and is...

The HTC Sensation XL has some good points and also no so good points, the camera is fine for photos, but not so good for recording video, the display on the device is pretty good though and this is one of the devices plus points.Overall the HTC...

The HTC Sensation XL puts in an honest performance as a smartphone, and is fast and easy to use. HTC's rich, well-developed Sense user interface provides a whole world of possibility for anybody keen on customising their phone. But the resolution on...

The HTC Sensation XL with Beats Audio is one powerful multimedia device and is a good smartphone too. THE Android smartphone market is ­getting crowded with each passing month as many manufacturers keep introducing new models at breakneck speed....

The HTC Sensation XL has a mammoth screen, and it has the best of Android and HTC’s Sense UI, but in terms of display resolution, processing speed, video recording and memory expansion, its Beats-packing cousin the XE is the better handset. ®...

The big screen and enhanced audio position the Sensation XL as a favourite for media monkeys and it delivers some great visuals and sound. It's a hefty pocketful however, and you could argue that other high-end phones can offer sharper screens and...

The HTC Sensation XL is both good, yet disappointing. On one hand, it’s a great looking device, which does everything you want it to. The issue is with its price and what it offers for that price. HTC sells the Sensation XL in the market for...

At the end of another review I reflect on what has been the best phone I've reviewed so far with great praise actually as it is by far the best android device that I personally have used so far and I would also say that I've enjoyed doing this...

HTC’s Sensation XL is a super-sized smartphone that, with its huge 4.7 inch screen and bundled set of of Beats headphones, is one of today’s most impressive multimedia handsets. The second HTC phone to arrive wearing white livery –...

It is hard not to like the HTC Sensation XL for its big bright screen, great music performance and fast processor. But it is big for the hand and pocket and the absence of microSD expansion is a crime. ...

This handset was kindly provided by Three. They’ve been big fans of the site in the past so, when they offered me a chance to review the Sensation XL, I was looking forward to getting my hands on it. The XL is available from Three on Contract and...

There’s no doubt that HTC is getting behind Beats Audio in a big way. This summer the manufacturer ponied up $300 million for a 51 percent stake in Beats, and since then it’s been quick to bring to market phones like the Sensation XE and...

Sponsored links, if any, appear in green. The HTC Sensation XL is yet another iteration of HTC's high-end Sensation handset. This time, however, the processor is single-core only, and the screen resolution has dropped to WVGA, despite being larger...

It's certainly nice to be able to choose between platforms. But while there aren't that many handsets to choose from in WP7 land, Androids come in all shapes and sizes. Not that the HTC Sensation XL isn't pretty unique. With a massive 4.7"...
