HTC Sensation XL Price in the Philippines, Features and Tech Specs: After the HTC Sensation XE, the HTC Sensation XL is the next smartphone to be equipped with Beats Audio technology. XL, which means extra-large, best describes the huge screen size of this sleek smartphone. What is so special about the HTC Sensation XL? Does it have what it takes to stand out among the best handsets in the market today such as the Apple iPhone 4S, the Google Galaxy Nexus, and the Samsung Galaxy Note? Read on as we take a close look at some of its features, and then we will also be sharing with you its price as usual later on.
The HTC Sensation XL has that trademark HTC look, but overall I think it is one of the most gorgeous-looking smartphones that I’ve ever seen. It has that simple and clean design and has a very slim profile, making it easily ‘pocketable’ despite its enormous size. For bragging rights, the bright red Beats logo can be found at the lower portion of the back of the phone. The HTC Sensation XL is available in black and white version but I especially like the white one, which is also accented with brushed metal. In terms of looks, the highlight of the phone is definitely its massive 4.7-inch (~199 ppi) S-LCD capacitive touchscreen capable of 480 x 800-pixel resolution.
Although powered by a single-core 1.5 GHz Scorpion processor, the HTC Sensation XL is still a very powerful smartphone that could easily compete head-to-head in terms of performance with most of the latest handsets. Its processor is accompanied by Adreno 205 graphics chip and 768 MB of RAM, which enables the device to smoothly run Android operating system and all its supported apps. The HTC Sensation XL comes with a built-in 16 GB storage but it doesn’t come with a microSD card slot that let users beef up the storage. This really sucks since I assume that majority of those who will get enticed by this device are music lovers with tons of songs waiting to be copied from their music library.
The HTC Sensation XL runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread with custom HTC Sense 3.5 user interface. HTC sense is a nice GUI layer that tries to improve the user experience and added some visual polish to the stock Android UI. Since the HTC Sensation XL is bundled with Beats Audio, it uses a built-in Beats equalizer that can be easily enabled to enhance the audio quality. Like most Android devices, it comes with handy Google apps out-of-the box such as Gmail, Google Maps, and YouTube among others.
HTC has released two editions of the Sensation XL. There is the standard edition that ships with the Beats in-ear earphones, and there’s the limited edition that comes with Beats Solo HD headphones.
Having a very large and excellent display and bundled with Beats Audio technology, there is no doubt that the HTC Sensation XL is designed for users who want to get the best multimedia experience on their smartphone. Although it comes with weaknesses like the lack of expandable storage and relatively poor battery performance (according to some reviews), I still think that it is an ideal smartphone to have if you are really into music and are a big fan of Beats headphones.
