The HTC Sensation XL is one of HTC’s most talked about smartphones being one of the first phones by HTC to include ‘Beats audio’ the latest sound technology, alongside this the HTC Sensation XL offers sleek design and better accessories than its predecessors, within this review we will cover the positives and negatives of the device and make an overall decision of its success.
One of the most noticeable positive factors about the HTC Sensation XL is its style. With the latest fashions for smartphones in mind the HTC Sensation XL features a smooth profile and comes in either white or silver with red accents on the phone. The look and design of this phone is definitely noticeable and is one of the reasons the phone has been coveted so much by the market.
The Android operating system is also a positive for this phone review. With the latest technology this phone handles the Android operating system perfectly without a hint of freezing or lagging. The HTC Sensation XL can cope with the user having multiple specifications open at once and will still run fast and lag free.
Along with the Android operating system comes the Android marketplace; this is the second largest application store within the smartphone world and means that users of the HTC Sensation XL can have access to the most popular apps such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
Lastly, the Beats audio within the HTC Sensation XL is one of the most lusted features of this phone as it is brand new and also exclusive. This means that the HTC Sensation XL comes with a pair of Beats headphones which are known to be the best on the market, not only this but the phone is also set up to allow the best sound for music a phone is going to give you and with 16GB internal memory it makes the perfect music player.
The most obvious negative to every one of the HTC Sensation XL is the cost, retailing at £450 upwards. This makes the HTC Sensation XL one of the more expensive smartphones within the marketplace and puts it in competition with other phones such as the iPhone and this is no easy competitor. The price is more than likely to put most off unless they are an extreme music lover in which case the phone would be perfect.
As well as the price the other downfall we see within this device is the size and weight. The HTC Sensation XL is not only fairly weighty but also very large which can become a problem when holding the phone for a long amount of time. On top of this it is also so large it may not fit in people’s pocket which reduces the transportability an extreme amount.
Looking at all the info provided it is no doubt the HTC Sensation XL is a nice phone however with its high price and fairly basic features it may not be the phone for some.
