I got a sensation xe 6 weeks ago.
I would recommend this phone.
1. The camera is very good - a lot of cameras on smart phones are garbage. Don't ignore this point. Having a good camera is worth a lot in my opinion.
2. The processor is very good also. If you don't want to pay for a top of the line phone with 4 cores (which is a waste of money if you aren't either running a business with your phone or overly wealthy), then this is about the best processor you will get for a non top-of-the-line price (it is less than half of those phones).
3. The hardware build looks very solid. It even feels like its a very well built phone when you see it
4. The audio with beats is good
5. The display is great too
6. Price now is that of the newer budget phones, but the quality is higher
Overall very good
The downsides are:
1. Battery life is meh, but they are on most phones.
To improve it, use an app like 'llama' or 'automateit' to automatically change settings for you, such as auto turn brightness down to 30% when at home and up to 100% when out, have sync turned off by default and every half hour automatically have it turned on for 2 minutes. you should also root it to change processor governor, and ROM maybe to change other settings (I am very happy with ARHD 6.8.0). With all that, I need to recharge every 36 hours but I don't use it heavily. you probably will need to charge every night - or during the day also if you use it a lot - basically like other phones like s2, etc
2. Yes HTC seems to not care about upgrading the JB. it is a bummer for sure
Honestly though, this phone is so nice on my rooted ICS HTC Sense rom (ARHD), that I would still choose it again even with these 2 downsides. But of course it is best to know of these 2 downsides before you purchase it.
I think you will need to pay a lot more money to get a phone of this quality.

Hi there. could anyone help me, i'm thinking on a new mobile and i'm stuck between htc sensation xe, sony xperia sl, samsung galaxy nexus I9250 and huawei ascend p1.. wich one do you recommend?
styreal, 16 Feb 2013Firstly,why u keep comparing their ram and software ??If u wan your sensation on jb,u can just... moreyes, you are right; about the ppi! i am afraid to buy galaxy sIII mini because of it's low pixel density; i found another sony phone called Xperia SL ; it's a bit more expensive but has great features; i think i'll buy that :)
TechRevo, 09 Feb 2013I am using HTC Xe for 8mos now and I havent had any issues with the battery and the System its... moregood point! my aunt's passing her XE to me. hope there won't be any issues since she took good care of it.
Scientist , 15 Feb 2013thank you guys; for your comments; you know what? first i wanted to buy HTC Sensation; but som... moreFirstly,why u keep comparing their ram and software ??If u wan your sensation on jb,u can just go root your phone...Besides that , sensation xe has a 8 mp camera , 4.3 inch display ( higher ppi density) , 1.5 GHz dual core ,beats audio technology , 1750 mah battery ...All these specs already own s3 mini ...if u really wan JB AND 1GB RAM , xperia ion have it + a 12mp camera and their price almost the same ... lastly, who is ' they' ? Samsung's CEO ? did Samsung said s3 mini will have a better future?? Absolutely NO !
To rest your mobile power off your mobile and remove your battery for few second than press and hold volume down button than power on your mobile keep volume button hold down until you go to boot option from there you can find. also search in Google how to reset sensation xe you get help from there also
hi can u plz tell me frm where i can get the option of factory reset in htc sensation
thank you guys; for your comments; you know what? first i wanted to buy HTC Sensation; but some specifications disappointed me; 768MB ram in front of 1GB ram of GSIII mini; Android 4.0.4 in front of Jelly Bean; and they say that the battery drains more quickly than Siii mini; and sIII mini would have a better support in the future; so why you are saying that SIII mini is a waste of money?
No it s not true... One s is better but s2 isn t better beleive me
I have sensation xe... It s really good... Better than s3 mini
But i can say one thing for you : on sensation xe...speaker is normal not that perfect... But earphones or beats are things that make you adore you phone...
I suggest sensation xe but please don t get the white one, get the black one... Hope i helped u
Help, 13 Feb 2013i know that one s or galaxy s II is better; but between sensation and sIII mini which one do y... moreYa i agreed that u said one s is better but s2 is better i can't accept it … seriously s2 is almost same as sensation but sensation has a more powerful processor and beats audio technology … for s3 mini , please don't buy it …it only wasted your money as s3 mini price is quite high just because its name 's3 mini'….if u compare their spec ,u will four that it actually not worth …if you have these budget,u can go for sony xperia ion because it has larger display and BRAVIA ENGINE while their price almost the same….
