I used to own a HTC Desire HD, I bought it last june'11. I love it and swear it will last for a year or more, but my brother keep on bugging me to sell the phone to him and I should just buy a new one. Then I did, decided to choose between XL,XE and SGS2. I've ended with this phone XE. can't live on 16gb only, not enough for me, SGS2 plastic casing is too scary, I might end up damaging the phone. So I got the XE...
Here my Pros and Cons:
*Red and black combination is so amazing, never thought I would fall in love with how it looks like (I used to comment on the original sensation that it looks like a girl phone, and its not for me.)
*battery life is way better compared to DHD, now I can maximize everything and not worring loosing a charge to soon.
*I have a Jabra BT3030 headset and uses a philips headset that sounds like Beats so didn't really matter, but having Beats is amazing as well coz I can use it with my laptop but not on my N8, not supported.
*and of course sense 3.0 is so amazing... plus all the this I loved with DHD is here with better features.
* yeah the battery does heat up especially on how I use the phone, I literally abuse the phone, so its understandable that the phone will heat up and also its plug to the charger when I'm home..
*there would be times that the phone won't charge using laptop connection just on main power. which I always do with my DHD but again dual processor so more power needed.
* dont know if its a bug, but the vibration when texting or typing wont turn off... I dont use it to save more batt life but its not a MAJOR issue...
so to people asking about XL, XE and SGS2 which one is better? None, because it depends on wat u need, all 3 phones have differences it depends on what you need. XL have bigger screen and hardware is amazing, XE have better battery and faster processor and hardware is amazing as well, SGS2 have super amoled, some people love the GUI of samsung.
AnonD-33980, 13 Dec 2011Is this phone really worth buying as there are competitions such as the galaxy s2 which out do... moreJust consider the HTC Sensation XE came with the Monster iBeats earphone, its not cheap, and the faster 1.5 Dual Core processor. Definately worth more than $100.
hey does anybody know the real amswer why the phone heats up? should this be a concern?
rachee, 09 Dec 2011May u know how to remove my post in fb, using this XE?just swipe from left or right the post want to remove, then a red remove tab will appear, then press remove, (using android facebook apps)
AnonD-33980, 13 Dec 2011Is this phone really worth buying as there are competitions such as the galaxy s2 which out do... moreI am not a fan of galaxy, and i haven't tried one myself, but i don't like its design and its material, feels cheap for me, the XE feels great in your hand, and its looks beyond awesome.
Also the Sense UI is x10 better than Galaxy interface.
Just pick up for what you feel you like the most, both phones are pretty close in the specs.
max, 12 Dec 2011I'm gonna buy a HTC XE ,pls tell me whether its battery and camera is good.because my brother ... moreI have some issues for the battery, it could last 1 day with avg use, but i am buying Anker Battery anyway (~$15) cus its much better.
For the Camera its just awesome, taking pictures is instant and very smooth, i believe its less than iphone 4s quality but the difference is not noticeable, You will sure be happy with it. Overall the phone is great, i don't see any bad sides so far.
Is this phone really worth buying as there are competitions such as the galaxy s2 which out does this phone by a mile. Im really really keen for this mobile phone but I want to make the right decision as this is worth $850 at New Zealand while the s2 is $100 less. Please guys give me a good response. Thank you

One thing that is not clear in the review is that the beats audio profile can be used when the phone is connected to anything. Right now mine is connected to my very decent stereo and playing the beats audio profile.
Someone asked if this setup is any good for rock music and the answer is a resounding YES!!
IMHO it is actually better for rock than for rap as that has bass already boosted.
Classical is a bit more hit and miss but once you hear an organ work on this phone you will probably stuggle to go back to anything else - even vinyl.
One thing I have discovered is that, good as the included headphones are, the sound you can get out of this phone is actually better. I have connected it to a variety of stereo's and headphones and it simply amazes. It becomes very hard to remember that you are listening to a phone playing music when it does it this well.
As is probably obvious - I chose this phone mainly for its musical capabilities. Right now its the best there is - nothing else comes close (that I know of).
Edit: Should mention that all of my analysis of the sound is on the basis of using lossless WMA file formats and NOT MP3. I have no idea why HTC chose to support WMA rather than flac but it appears to work just as well. You can make them using the windows media player to rip CD's if you don't have any ready WMA lossless files.
