The HTC Sensation XL isn’t a bad Android smartphone, but considering its price there are definitely better Android smartphones out there for the same money.

It's not perfect but where it's good it is very good indeed
It’s a bit of a shame the Sensation XL has no card slot for memory expansion as this would really round off what is otherwise a great handset. The 16GB of internal capacity is a decent mid-range offering of space but we’d expect more for a phone at this price point.
On that note, although we were pleasantly surprised by this phone’s screen and performance we were a little disappointed with the camera and memory. Had HTC been more consistent at designing this as a truly premium phone it would easily be a contender for one of the best phones of the year alongside the likes of the... Full review
Stylish, large screen, no memory card slot
Overall, we found the Sensation XL to be a solid offering by HTC. What can we say, we are a sucker for stylish white smartphones and the Sensation XL earned one brownie point from us in that department alone.
The rest come from the big, bright display and Beats audio system.
The only drawback is the absence of a memory slot to expand the internal storage. But, hey, if iPhone users can live with that limitation, we don't see why Sensation XL users can't do the same.
This smartphone is also a little on the pricey side with its RM2,099 price tag so you would... Full review
Pretty large, no microSD card slot, display looks pretty good
Exciting Screen size, videos look great, no microSD card slot
There’s a lot that I like about the HTC Sensation XL. I’m a big fan of good audio so listening to music was a pleasure on it. I’m a big fan of large screens, so watching videos and browsing the internet, or even playing a game of Angry Birds or checking my Twitter (on the official Android app), it was all a joy to use thanks to the Android experience on the HTC Sensation XL and the size it offers. Day-to-day tasks will be a lot easier, if anything else.
Unfortunately though there are key elements that prevent this good phone, from being an exceptionally good phone. The specs lis... Full review
Big, looks great, limited storage
It's fast and easy to use
Overall sound is crisp, clear and full of detail, no microSD card slot
Bright and vibrant screen, media playback is fine
The HTC Sensation XL is both good, yet disappointing. On one hand, it’s a great looking device, which does everything you want it to. The issue is with its price and what it offers for that price. HTC sells the Sensation XL in the market for around Rs.38,799 (MRP of Rs. 39,990).
The cheaper Sensation XE offers a smaller screen, but it’s denser - which means more workspace, it has a memory card slot, which means one can upgrade the storage capacity by a lot and it has a lot more power - a dual-core processor. You get all for roughly Rs.5,000 less. If you’re looking for a large sc... Full review
Gorgeous screen, snappy performance, notification LED
I can’t honestly say I would buy or use this device as my own but I do like it. It’s solid, reliable, has a really good (not brilliant) screen and given what I put the phone through across the last week I’m genuinely impressed by the battery life it has displayed during this review. HTC have done a really good job with this phone, both on the hardware and the software side of the device. Physically the device is pleasing to the eye and despite being a little on the large side has a really nice, comfortable feel in your hand.
It’s one of those devices that’s on the cusp, not... Full review
Awesome audio quality and the screen is beautiful
The best phone I've reviewed so far with great praise actually as it is by far the best android device that I personally have used so far and I would also say that I've enjoyed doing this review more than any other.
I am at the moment unsure as to what group of people this phone is aimed at due to its size and also its cost to buy, but what I would say to anyone on the lookout for a very impressive smartphone that has it all that you can't really go wrong with buying this phone. If I had the money then I would definitely be buying this as a second device for myself because I liked i... Full review
