Did any of you guys have this experience on your XE's? The battery is on full charge and works ok in music,games,video, and apps.. but when someone rings the phone it turns off by itself..or sometimes it would just switch itself off..my XE is on 4.1.Any comment on this
I am using this phone about 1 month .For me its pretty good.For that money can't buy better.Was cost about 270 EUR,all equal phone are more expensive.It comes with android 4.0.3. don't understand why everybody wants jelly bean.Works perfect with ICS.Can play all 3D games.Market say do not support all games,but i download for free via PC and install in phone.

Agey1010, 22 Dec 2012Hey people :) I really REALLY want to buy the sensation xe, however, some of the comments in t... moreJust to give you my point of view. I'm using this phone almost a year know. First the answers to your questions:
1) Photo quality is OK in normal light conditions. In lower light conditions it will become gradually worse. I can not compare this to the phone you want it to be compared with.
2) Video quality is pretty much the same as photo quality. In good light conditions it's OK (that doesn't mean wicked, but enough). The audio for the video is terrible (if a lot of noise is produced). If just one person is speaking, or a bird is singing, or situations like that, it's ok, but for the other situations, which appear to happen more, it's really bad (no good audio filtering it seems).
3) Beats audio is wicked, I really like this feature, although it's only enabled with the built in audio system, so if you use other apps for playing music, this will probably not work (or not that I now of). The ears that come with the sensation xe are really really good! Certainly a plus. The quality of the speaker of the sensation xe is not that good (can't go very loud and if it's very loud it will be noise).
Now just to give you other advice:
Some downpoints I noticed:
- Phone falls out sometimes (which means a few times each week, which I find annoying)
- Battery can become hot.
--> these are both battery problems and I read something about changing the battery or putting a paper between it and the cover to solve the problem (haven't tried that yet).
- Sometimes it's laggy.
Rest is pluspoint I suppose.
I wouldn't buy this phone anymore, because htc is very slow in updating software (android 4.1 came out in like July or something and it's still not on the sensation xe right now in January).
Therefor I would probably buy a Nexus (read Google) phone that will support updates right away.
Also the fall out problem I really find irritating, certainly if a call comes in.
My advice, search a little bit further and you will find better phones now (One X+, Samsung SIII, Nexus 4,...).
Good luck on your search.

(Also, don't say that it is just a custom rom or anything, the moment I got the phone and turned it on and checked the android version it said Version 4.04, i.e ICS)
Agey1010, 22 Dec 2012Hey people :) I really REALLY want to buy the sensation xe, however, some of the comments in t... more1. i think the camera is pretty neat. what's more it has an in-built editing system where you can auto-enhance the pic to make it look better.
2. video quality is a so-so. sound for video is crap. especially if youre recording a live concert.
3. yes the beats are pretty awesome it lives up to its name. one of the main reasons i got the phone.
