Does the HTC Sensation XE "Gorilla glass" and whether it is worth to buy? Please tell me.

Don't know about anyone else but this looks to me as if this is good enough to earn the status of the best phone of 2011.

As for the IPhone 5 dont hold your breath if it ever does see the light of the day it will be years behind then current technology.

The Sensation XL is too big! If you want a gigantic, cool looking phone without a memory card slot, then buy the XL. If you want a little bit smaller phone, which can support even Micro SDXC card up to 64 GB, buy the Sensation XE.

Unless you try hard to replicate it, you probably won't get the deathgrip issue. You have to PRESS the casing, not hold it as per casual use. At least, that's what my model's like.

> In reply to golhungas @ 2011-11-09 10:07 from S0EG - click to readYes - speaker is loud enough but a bit distoreted sometimes - not ideal if you want to hear good music. Better equip some standalone speakers or use the provided headphones. If you mean for calls, I'm guessing this distortion issue won't be a factor at all, given that voice is generally mid-frequencies and I noticed distortions mainly on bass sounds (low frequencies).

> In reply to Rishinkk @ 2011-11-09 08:55 from 3J80 - click to readFirst off - I tested the 'death grip' wi-fi issue myself and the signal DOES decrease, however only if you press hard and long - normal hold strength won't have a visible effect. Even speedtest app confirmed that my wi-fi speed was still fast despite the deathgrip and the visibly lower reception bars.

As regards GSM deathgrip, the same applies - you have to be PRESSING the casing, not holding it and that makes a BIG difference to me. If you have to PRESS your phone to hold it, then maybe death-grip is the least of your problems...

As regards storage, you're typically provided with a 16 or 8Gb microSD card when buying this phone, mine had 16Gb - whenever you install apps that CAN be moved to SD, just move them over there to save onboard space.

RAM doesn't seem to be a problem so far - but I've only had it for one day so can't tell much about that. Still, 768 is a good enough amount I'm guessing, though 1Gb would have been more appreciated.

All in all, this is a fantastic phone and the sound does come out loud and great - loved it myself, though this might be an acquired taste and not for everyone.

If you're torn between normal Sensation and this one, I'd buy this one - the bigger battery, faster CPU and typically larger SD card plus beats-headphones and software more than makes up what would typically be around 100 Euro premium.

Just my 2 cents anyway!!
