By Bryan Subscribe to RSS | January 5th 2012 | Views:

HTC has created many smartphones for 2012 customers and so launched in advance at the end of 2011 so that people get time to review and decide whether or not the phones suit their requirements. As the New Year (2012) finally started, we are here to review HTC Sensation XL, an amazing smartphone with high-end features.

Pros :

HTC Sensation XL is a good smartphone and offers good sound quality which enhances due to the Beats headphone. It runs Android v2.3 Gingerbread operating system with a 1.5GHz Scorpion processor. Its 8 megapixel camera is very impressive.

Cons :

It is a high priced HTC cellphone which is very distracting. In this range, one can plan to buy a much better, fully-equipped mobile phone. The phone doesn’t have any standard feature for Beats headphone, so while playing music an icon appears in the notification bar where you can either enable or disable the feature. There is no Sense interface from HTC that enhances much Android functionality.

Display and hardware :

The HTC Sensation XL is an Android smartphone with an impressive 4.7 inches of –LCD capacitive touchscreen display. It comes in entire white colored body. The display offers 480 x 800 pixels of resolution with 16M colors. This makes the phone very attractive as it holds latest look by offering clear pictures. The display is very bright as well as colorful. There isn’t any noticeably rough edge or pixilation of the pictures. If compared this HTC Sensation XL with Samsung Galaxy Nexus, it is bigger and brighter screen perfectly matches the 720 x 1,280 resolution’s Nexus and makes reading easy.

The front is adorned by the longer screen with four touch sensitive navigational keys at the bottom of the screen. At the top right hand corner is a 1.3 megapixel front facing camera which is useful for video calling. At the rear is an 8 megapixel camera integrated with dual-LED flash and autofocus. For video shooting, the camera gives 720p resolution whereas; for pose and shoot, the camera gives a whopping 3264 x 2448 pixels of resolution.

A metallic-finish rear cover for battery adds elegance to the phone. Below it is a white plastic finish with Beats’ logo. HTC’s logo is also printed at the upper cover that states the elegance of this brand. About other features, this phone includes a 3.5 mm headset jack and internal memory of up to 16GB, mated to a 768 MB RAM. If you want, you can add up to 32 GB of memory to the card slot. Considering the overall dimensions and weight of this phone, it measures at 132.5mm x 70.7mm x 9.9mm and 162.5 grams.

Features :

HTC Sensation XL is run by a 1.5 GHz single-core Scorpion processor that gives good experience to all the users. It is equipped with Android v2.3 Gingerbread operating system with a Qualcomm chipset. The phone features Beats audio system and comes with the branded Beats headset. Moreover, the phone is integrated with Adobe Flash, active noise cancellation with dedicated mic, internet, voice memo/dial/commands, document viewer/editor, MP3/MP4 player, and predictive text input. The phone features 3G network, FM radio with RDS, GPS, Java, and gaming options.

HTC Sensation XL is also packed with GPRS, EDGE, HSDPA and HSUPA speed. For connectivity, the phone offers Wi-Fi support and Wi-Fi hotspot, v3.0 Bluetooth with A2DP and v2.0 microUSB features.

Battery :

The phone gives better battery life – 2G standby backup of up to 360 hours and 3G up to 460 hours. Talk time backup is of up to 11 hours 50 minutes on 2G and up to 6 hours 50 minutes on 3G. It holds a 1,600 mAh Li-ion battery.

Price :

The major flaw of this cellphone is that it is very expensive as compared to other high-end smartphones. As the competition is very high, manufacturers have to curb the price range of their products and offer better features at low price. HTC Sensation XL is available in the UK market at a price tag of £405 and Rs. 39,990 in India which is really too much.
