Didn't encounter any death grip issues when holding the phone with a phone cover on.
Planning to buy within the month... anyone in the Philippines know the retail price of XE? need help thanx
chebchob, 08 Nov 2011@gundamzhen.. oh i see.. thanks a lot.. but is it true? that the xe having a problem wth that?... moreHmmm well this site(gsmarena) mentioned it has this problem. But most of the phone site. Example
just right above the Processor, they mentioned this
"We should also mention that no matter how we held the device, we failed to encounter any of the so-called "death grip" issues that people complained about with the first Sensation."
Actually it's not so big of a deal. Just BUY IT and ENJOY IT.
@gundamzhen.. oh i see.. thanks a lot.. but is it true? that the xe having a problem wth that? coz im planning to buy it on december just a gft for my sel. lol
chebchob, 08 Nov 2011what do you mean by death grip? kndly explain it to me.plsIt's like you are holding the phone tight and cover most of the phone circumference, it will experience some sort of weak connections and causes it to drop calls.
5 days ago got mine.
And for the first time posting my comment on gsm arena. For the people who thinks about buying it and for the people who is looking for its problems all the time. Previously used Nokia N97, Sony ericsson Vivaz and Sony ericsson Xperia X10. Also had my hands on i-phone 3GS and Samsung GS II though didnt use them.
Display: Amzing..didnt feel its bad in sunlight. some people may find SGS II display better but i felt its only brighter not better i'll say.
Camera: Good, i'll not say amazing. But same as X10 or SGS II (though SGS II has better flash i think).
Video: Very good.
Music: MOST AMAZING EVEN BETTER THAN i-POD. Beats audio is gonna blow ur mind away. Coolest part of the device.
Design: Very good. looks so cool, better than any phone i've ever seen. For sure better than SGS II.
Touch: Very smooth. My friend has I-phnoe4. He said my Sensation XE feels even better.
Battery: Not satisfactory. On heavy use like playing games n using internet it may last for 15 hours as u charge it once. Some people may find it annoying, i do sometimes too.
Over all: Amazing phone..no death grip issues so far i've experienced. So if someone wants to go for it this will help i guess :)
Ankuran, 07 Nov 2011hey guyzzzz, we know that htc sensation XE comes with Operating System 2.3.4(Gingerbread)..but... moreSir, if possible please wait for june 2012 because by that time all the android devices from HTC, SAMSUNG will come with ANDROID 4.0 pre-installed. So, sensation XE will cme wth android 4.0 with 1 GB RAM and 8 or 16 GB inbuilt memory FOR SURE.
I wanna ask cause am not sure about this, does this phone come with gorilla display or it's just a bad luck for me?
Thanks in advance,
Jamal from Qatar
Ankuran, 07 Nov 2011hey guyzzzz, we know that htc sensation XE comes with Operating System 2.3.4(Gingerbread)..but... moreNo problem at all. Xe will be the first batch of htc devices to get the ICS treatment.
Some of the proves :
You can currently use XDA developer Mike1986's ROM to turn your current HTC Sensation 4G into XE. His rom unlocks the CPU to 1.566GHz, includes Beat Audio Software. The only benefit to upgrading to the new release of the phone is the HeadPhones which you can buy only for CHEAP. :-)
Enjoy. Don't Spend Any more money than you have to HTC Sensation 4G rocks hard core.
hey guyzzzz, we know that htc sensation XE comes with Operating System 2.3.4(Gingerbread)..but guyz on coming few months (45-60 days) estimated a new android OS gona b lunch..viz "anroid v4.0 icecream sandwich....and is it possible to upgrade our existing OS to the new one?
plz help me out...m planning to buy a htc sensation xe tomorrow, so will i wait for the new operating system or it can b upgraded with the lunch of new one?
Any Attention to deathgrip issue ? its too important for a phone !
Does Sensation XE have multitasking? Also out of experience how long really the battery life is on full on mode?
Regarding the internal memory it is mentioned in the review - 4 GB (1 GB user available). Can anyone please clarify what exactly does it mean. ie; if there is 4 GB internal memory and only 1 GB is available, what happens to the rest 3 GB of internal memory.Sorry if this is a foolish question.
