HTC Sensation XE Price in Singapore, Features, and Other Info

HTC Sensation XE Price in Singapore, Features, and Other Info: Along with the HTC Sensation XL, the HTC Sensation XE is another smartphone released by the Taiwanese manufacturing giant to incorporate Beats Audio system. It is actually the first handset to utilize Dr. Dre’s popular Beats audio technology. Specs-wise, the HTC Sensation XE handset serves as an upgrade to the popular HTC Sensation. However, the changes are not that significant, so if you already own the original Sensation there’s really no reason to be jealous.
In terms of design, the HTC Sensation XE mainly looks the same as its predecessor if not for the red accents that can be seen on the camera, speaker and navigation panel, and the bright-red Beats Audio logo at the back. It has that trademark look of an HTC smartphone but has a modern and sleek appearance that exudes quality. The thing that stands out most upon looking at the HTC Sensation XE for the first time is its brilliant 4.3-inch touch display (with Gorilla glass coating). It has a pixel resolution of 540×960 (256 dpi), making images and texts sharper and clearer even when viewing them at a distance.
The HTC Sensation XE packs the powerful Qualcomm MSM 8260 Snapdragon chipset with 1.5 GHz dual-core processor (up from 1.2GHz on the original Sensation) and Adreno 220 GPU. According to several tests, the handset performs impressively and shows its speed and power when doing resource-intensive tasks like web browsing, playing games and movies, and shooting videos among others. Speaking of videos, the smartphone is equipped with 8-megapixel autofocus camera (with dual-LED flash) capable of 1080p (30fps) HD video recording. The HTC Sensation XE is loaded with a 1730mAh Li-Ion battery, which is quite a significant upgrade to the 1520mAh battery found on its predecessor. This enables the device to stay alive for about a day on heavy use and could last several days when not doing resource-intensive tasks.

The HTC Sensation XE runs Android Android 2.3.4 “Gingerbread” out-of-the-box but it has a custom HTC Sense 3.0 user interface to differentiate itself from the rest of the Android-using phones. HTC Sense aims to improve the whole Android experience by providing widgets, accessibility features, and visual enhancements. It also provides tight social network integration for Twitter and Facebook and has its own custom keyboard for a faster and more accurate typing.
Finally, let’s talk about Beats. HTC not only provides Beats hardware in the form of iBeats earphones but also software that helps significantly-enhance the audio output. The Beats audio DSP (digital signal processing) mode and the bundled iBeats earphones work together in perfect harmony to give you a studio quality sound. This feature may not sound believable to some, but according to several reviews, Beats Audio really has an impact on making the HTC Sensation XE a lean, mean multimedia machine.
All things considered, the HTC Sensation XE with Beats Audio is a great phone with powerful specs and several value added features that would make any music lover happy. But if you are looking for a plain powerful Android smartphone minus the Beats capability, the Samsung Galaxy S2 / SII or the Google Galaxy Nexus may be right for you.
