HTC Sensation goes XL

Like the HTC Desire HD and the original Desire before it, the HTC Sensation has comfortably claimed its place as HTC’s flagship handset and with a generous 4.3″ display and a speedy dual core processor it’s a worthy holder of that title.

Since the release of the Sensation, HTC have purchased the hugely popular Beats by Dr Dre and have began to release handsets incorporating this newly acquired technology, such as the HTC Sensation XE. While the XE was a slightly modified Sensation with a pair of very nice headphones included, the HTC Sensation XL with Beats Audio is looking to differentiate itself from the original Sensation a little more.

It only takes a quick glance at the Sensation XL to notice the biggest difference, like the HTC Titan this phone has a huge screen. At 4.7 inches the XL’s display is significantly larger than that of the Sensation and Sensation XE. The XL only has a single-core processor but at 1.5Ghz this is still a pretty speedy CPU.

The 8 megapixel camera found in the Sensation XL is one of HTC’s best yet and with 16GB of internal storage there’s plenty of space to keep all those pictures along with your videos and music. In many ways the Sensation XL is pretty much an Android version of the excellent Windows Phone 7 based HTC Titan.

With Beats audio and a massive screen the HTC Sensation XL is a great choice for anyone who wants to use their phone for listening to their music collection and watching tons of videos and could be just as successful as the original HTC Sensation. The Sensation XL is available from Three UK right now on a £37 a monh contract with all-you-can-eat data, 500 minutes and 5000 texts with no upfront cost.

5G hype is everywhere, but it isn't just going to have a colossal impact on mobile connectivity speed and wireless networks. It will also dramatically boost the rates of mobile phone waste if smartphone owners continue to be apathetic about smartphones' collective impact on the environment.
