maybe HTC's specifications bellow Samsung's specifications, but I think, for stability(and bug free) and after sale quality, HTC greater than Samsung...
htc is far better than samsung.very good phone. sound is good. all in all is good.
ics is coming late march for some htc handsets...xciting isnt it?
I have had this fone for 3 months. It is a great fone with 2 major drawbacks that will make me change over to the Galaxy S2 in the next few days.
1) very poor battery life which will only last half a day when browsing lightly and moderate use of incoming and outgoing calls. I have purchased a spare battery from Amazon which gives me slightly more life than the standard HTC battery.
2) for this reason I am moving over to Samsung, DEATH GRIP!! Really bad beyond belief. I am using the fone on Vodafone in the UK and have never had any signal issues with any fone until now. In a nearby town where Vodafone has an excellent signal, the XE would not pick up a signal. After 10mins I restarted the fone and it picked up a signal. That was the straw that broke the camels back!!
Cannot fault this fone in any other area apart from the above which to me and probably other users are the main factors to having a fone.
I wonder why not HTC is trying to compete with Samsung!!! I am a great fan of HTC and was about to buy Sensation XE, but when compared to Samsung Galaxy S2, price group is same but so much literally so much difference in hardware.. Galaxy S2 is way ahead of sensation XE :( It has better Display(but no blame on HTC as Samsung has stopped supplying HTC AMOLEDs to curtail HTC Market value as Samsung is also a major manufacturer of AMOLEDs), RAM an imp factor I wonder why HTC dint add enough of it!! also just 1GB internal Memory!!! comeon guys this is a high price group phone!!!! both have same processors though apparently HTC has fastest but it is using Qualcom chipset and 1.5 GHz snapdragon processor whereas Galaxy S2 is using 1.2 GHz Cortex A-9 whose architecture is advance from that of snapdragon and overall 1.5GHz of HTC is only 5% faster than Galaxy S2 when comes on execution of internal instructions so no difference in processing speed, GPU of Galaxy is twice that of HTC :( it is awful, only adding Sound Beats doesn't mean HTC is better, yes its feel and sense is matchless but professionals look at performance rather then looks, I just dropped my plan of buying HTC but waiting may be HTC tries to add value in hardware comparable to the demand price!!! I hope HTC will do better... waiting for gud....

The "iphoners" line was a very nice touch. :)
The screen is scratch resistant and not scratch-proof. But to tell you,XE's screen is highly resistant from scratch. You know I have a clear screen guard, and it already has scratches, but nothing on the remaining surrounding screen where the screen guard is not protecting.The screen guard does not cover the whole screen.Just tellin'.
I just bought Sensation XE.
I am not that very amaze in what have beats put in it.
I am still much ok with Player Pro.
What I love about this phone is the GPS navigation.
Also, I am not amaze in HTC Sense. I still prefer GO Launcher EX. Gives me more control and less battery usage, and ram.

ShahWaleed, 03 Feb 2012Galaxy S2 is hands down the best device you can find right now. I have had it and used it and ... moreWhat is your experience of an HTC Sensation XE? You seem to like Samsung devices, I don't see you writing about SII, why not?
I have had my Sensation XE for a week now and love it. All has gone really well but now when I text or receive texts it just comes up with a number not a name, does anyone know if I have done something to cause that?
I am currently a blackberry user but I wanna get an Android phone by next month (this would be my first time using an Android device). After doing my own research, I'm between the Sensation XE and the Samsung Galaxy S2. I am interested in call quality, apps and entertainment really, so which one do you guys suggest?? I'm torn!
Hey guys, what do you think, XL or XE?
I think it's a bit hard to choose between them..
