This is my upgrade phone (Sensation XL) from my old Blackberry. I must say its one of the best phone I ever had. Big screen, beautiful sound and easy to use. Only issues i don't like are, NO slots for extra memory card, battery life and most of all when you SKYPE to someone you look GREEN on their screen. HTC should address this issue.

I have owned the HTC Sensation XL for about 6 months now. At first I loved it, it was the best phone I had ever owned. The screen was fantastic as was the features, the ease of use, the space, the speed, everything. About 2 months ago, the screen cut out and went completely black (no, it hadn't been dropped). The device was still switched on, and the screen was responsive as it would vibrate when I touched it to put in my lock code. It stayed black for about an hour or two, then worked again like normal. This began to happen once every couple of weeks, but now it is a daily issue. The other day it wouldn't work for 16 hours! Not only have I has issues with that, but It also freezes CONSTANTLY. I will be trying to send a text message, and sometimes it will freeze for a minute or so before I can continue. Other times it simply lags, which is frustrating as the word options on the autocorrect don't appear so I have to go back and fix all the spelling errors. Also now after having it for 6 months, my battery will only last 5-8 hours, depending on how much I use it. Some other issues I have had with the phone have been issues with my provider, but these 3 issues mentioned above are the biggest and most frustrating. I will be using HTC again, in hope that a newer device may be improved, as I had no issues with the Desire HD (hands down best phone I've owned). But as for this device, I do not recommend!!!!

Great phone, the best one I've had so far Just having a problem with exiting apps. I'm one my second one and both have had a problem with having to load when exiting an app. Both have taken around 10 weeks for this problem to develop and comes on suddenly. Have not been able to sort this problem out as yet.

i'm using this product from past 67 day's until now i haven't experienced any prob's, though the smartphone is equip'd with 1.5Ghz single core processor it feels very smooth and HTC thanks for the new F2.2 camera and beats which carries our media experience a couple of notches higher and it feels better in your hand while your holding it . faster flash browsing experience, and i'm hardcore user of my smartphone and has a better battery backup when compared to most of the smartphones of this segment.
- low screen resolution (which is especially felt during gaming and watching HD videos )
- video quality.
- backlight HDR ( on camera ) is really irritating which ultimately leads to a blur image.
- front sensor on the phone is highly sensitive.
- no android ICS 4.0 update until now.
> overall its a *best smartphone.

Well, I've owned the handset for 3 months now on the O2 network in the UK. Upon opening the box and flicking the phone of the cardboard holder, I managed to drop the handset. As traumatic as this sounds, it bore the brunt of the laminate floor it bounced off and carried on.
First set-up was a little long winded, but covered everything from copying contacts from my sim all the way to syncing emails from 3 of my existing addresses.
Once the second splash (startup screen) passed, the phone fired into activity. Icons are large, text is crisp and the live wallpapers are superb. The main menu is standard issue Android, with an active smattering of HTC Sense 3.5. This made a dull prospect of checking the weather into a three-dimensional dream, with clear graphics I flew through a raincloud. Fantastic effects, albeit with the usual wet weather and single digit temperatures!!
After 6 weeks of use, I did find the baterry to have taken a bit of a hit, with charging taking roughly 1 hour and 45 mins through the mains and a couple of minutes shy of 3 hours through the USB. The average life span for the battery after a test period consisting of 1 hour talk time, 1 hour 30 minutes of Sparkle Drop, 4 hours of listening to music with Beats switched on and 2 hours of navigation the battery was near flat. Ok so its not that bad but its far from 4 days use as claimed by certain folk!
As we cut to close, the reason I bought this handset is because I wanted to try out the Dre Beats built-in audio. The earphones that came with it, the URBeats are genuinely very good. Not as bassy as the Solo over the ear efforts from the same company, the URBeats have a little more treble on louder volumes.
Over all I'm going to give it 9/10. If it weren't for the lack of 1080p video recording and the slightly underpowered battery it would have been a clean sweep.

this phone is one of many high powered smart phone i have had in my life and is deffently the best, the sound quality from the headphones is awesome and the screen looks amazing better than the XE! Battery life is a small let down but thats the huge screens problem. If anyone thinks its slow to load. just turn on Fast Boot it takes about 15 seconds to turn on

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Wigsy440 Slippery but good
This is a very large phone indeed, and the display is gorgeous. The only drawback is that it is very difficult for one-handed use, and this isn't helped by the fact that the rear surface of the phone is extremely smooth and slips out of your hand easily. But I understand that its toughened glass means that the drops aren't such a bad thing, so that's a bonus. Great display, wonderful sound, and it has much better battery life than my last HTC.

I bought this phone-twice. Initially bought it at launch, sold it when LG Prada 3.0 came out, then realised my error and bought another. I love the camera effects, and the size of the screen is fabulous. It is a good looking handset, glad it is white, and I find the battery life better than iPhone 4, Prada, and blackberry bold 9900. To sum it up, you get beauty and brains in one package. Love it!

Was seriously fortunate to receive this spectacular smartphone for chrimbo 2011 with the free Beats Headphones (outer ear), after 3 weeks of pestering my father for one when i fell in love with his one when he brought one home! Both on O2 UK 2 year tariff and for the first time i think i'd be sad to stop using this phone once the contracts over, recommended this to so many people its the first thing that comes up in conversation! Amazing screen size, brightness, sound and game/app quality, the messaging/email is easiest thing ever. Makes me laugh that Iphones fit inside the screen! This phone is a beast! People think i'm carrying round a tablet in my pocket! Definitely beats any other smartphone on the market and yes i may be bias here but Iphones have got nothing on this masterpiece of technology!! Incredible phone more then happy to carry on using HTC's forever now, especially as i have sadly dropped it 2 times and where Iphones usually crack after their first accident this machine has yet to break!! Very reliable, incredibly durable and long lasting, worth the money however you pay for it. A definite must have for any age looking for the best and fastest way to connect to people in every way imaginable!!! Thank you HTC! :)

HTC always insipers, ever since i started taking interest in mobile phones (around 7 years ago). I started from HD2, then Incredible S, then Sensation 4g and now this Sensation XL and all are greater then the previous one. Specially Sensation series. It's simply out of this world, amazing. Amazing screen size, perfect to hold in hand, perfect audio, most sensitive touch...everything about this phone is loveable.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Tricky Takes some getting used to
this is my third HTC phone, my others being a Wildfire X and a Desire S. This model was a slight let down though, if i'm honest.
The phone is HUGE. Bigger than an iPhone, and because of that, not too convenient. I found i have to put the phone down to write texts and play games.
Like others have said before me, the case is quite slippery smooth, so not only is it difficult to handle but as i found out, it easily slides out of a rear pocket, if for instance you bend over to pick something up.
The touchscreen is a little too sensitive, which will be cured once i get a screen protector on it, and the autocorrect is, well, a little kooky!
My biggest gripe is the lack of micro sd card slot. The standard memory is 16Gb, which is reduced to about 14 once factory apps are put on it, and can easily go down to 10 or 11 once a few marketplace apps are downloaded. i have just uploaded my record library from my SD card onto it and the free memory has gone down to 6Gb, and i've only had the phone a week.
The good bits are - well just about what has been said many thimes before. A good sized screen. Quick, easy surfing, and excellent sound and graphic qualities. i do miss my Wildfire though!

I would recommend this phone, 'cause I am using it for few months now, and I find it best I ever had (and I had many, many phones, starting from Nokia 3310). Battery life depends on you really - if you know how to save battery life it won't be a problem.

I have long admired HTC's products for their innovation and ease of use and was not disappointed with my Sensation XL.
The screen is beautiful and using applications is fluid and brilliant. The battery life is good considering the size if the screen and I have had no problem using the keyboard, thanks to the wider keys!
Overall I love this phone and will be sad to see it go when it's time for an upgrade! 5 stars! *****
