Elven, 04 Nov 2011Sensation XE has the same cpu and include beats audio too... Rezound has only 2 better differe... moreIts not true the HTC RAZOUR has 5 differences or more when you compare with HTc sensation xe the razour has a 3.5 sense,2mp front camera,HD display,16gb internal memory and it will upgrade on early 2012 on ice crem Sandwich 4.0
Anonymous, 14 Nov 2011I still do not think this phone will compare to the iPhone 4SI think it will. And the Beats Audio just makes it better.
Beats Audio only works with native HTC music player and NOT with streaming apps like Pandora, Spotify, etc.
First, I am having a v bad case of 6 monthes itch, so my SG2 is going, I am on the fence, G nexus or rezound (if it becomes gsm) 4.3" is about all I can carry, the sound & camera are nice, but I worry abt the GPU & the A8 processor. ICS isn't an issue sine htc really update their product (shame on u samsung) the sd card is a plus too. Final verdict, I'll wait for the availability &full reviews, get either till the SG3 finally arrives, so will satisfy my 6 month itch regardless, by the way I live in egypt, so, sim free for me, :) till now leaning to htc, would be my 1st ever
ess, 04 Nov 2011Yes, you can get lower spec phones for less money? That's not news. HTC Sense alone makes ... moreSense IMO sucks. ICS itself has a great UI and is a lot less demanding in resources. Beat Audio is also mostly marketing, having tried a few of their products, I don't see how the headphones and software can compensate for a poor DAC. The original Galaxy S with the Wolfson DAC blows this away. Similarly, the CPU is fast but is still the slowest among the OMAP and Exynos.

Rezound has only 2 better difference from XE. these are the 720p display and the 1 gb ram... XE has 1 advantage that the battery is better than rezound. so no need to wait for rezound. go buy sensation xe...
TruthSeekr, 04 Nov 2011Spec-wise this phone seems awesome.
But why is it that every single phone HTC's ever made i... moreI understand and agree with you a bit but I also understand HTC's side of designing. HTC thinks "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" and since their Black Regtangle devices keep flying off the shelves (like Samsung's) thy see no reason to change a working formula.
I was excited to see the White Sensation XL until I saw that it has NO SD CARD SLOT and HTC aren't the best with internal storage. So I had to pass on it.
oh yes, the s3 will come in `12 with a 8 core bulldozer 16G ram ddr3 at 2000mhz and a nvidia 590 just wait till then... joke!
about this subject, to bad this phone dose not get gsm :(
AnonD-10768, 04 Nov 2011The thing with "beats" is that. No matter how good or bad it sounds (that is persona... moreDid you just say Baggy Clothes and a Backwards Cap as part of Modern Hip Hop? LOL!!!
Most people in Rap (which you are confusing with Hip Hop) wear Skinny Jeans and have a short cut Mohawk now. I can't tell you how long its been since I've seen someone wearing a Backwards Cap. LOL!!!
Clearly you grew up in either the 80's or 90's to even remember Baggy Clothes and Backwards Hats.
I would go for Nokia N9 that has better sound teqnique.
Dolby and other stuff.
uncle bob, 04 Nov 2011bring to the uk NOWSadly the UK lacks LTE, so there's no point to this phone in your region.

HTC Sense alone makes ... more@ess yeah I could.But guess am not retiring my Wave S8500 until they release a phone that will do the dishes ;)That's not much to ask for from a dude who thinks a cup that I used for 10 O'clock tea is still cool for the 4 O'clock tea(unwashed), is it?
Mentalist, 04 Nov 2011The processor is only 1.5Ghz the S2 can be overclocked till 2.5Ghzdual core Just wait the S3 ... morei think s3 will not be quad,the rumors a while ago said 1.8 dual core,and i think they are not far off,hd rez without pentile matrix on the other hand is the best ,best audio,solid phone in my opinion:P
Bada Fan, 04 Nov 2011Specs alone dictate this phone will cost an arm and a leg. Seriously,why does HTC place hefty ... moreYes, you can get lower spec phones for less money?
That's not news.
HTC Sense alone makes this worth waiting for, but the Beats Audio, the lovely CPU and the higher resolution mean I'll be waiting for this and skipping the Sensation XE
