Compare Sensation XE Deals

The HTC Sensation XE is a great smart phone for music lovers. It comes complete with iBeats headphones which retail at around £80 when sold separately. These headphones have been designed by music producer Dr Dre and give exceptional sound quality, far outperforming any other mobile-phone head phones available on the market today.

This phone isn't just about music, though. It also packs an 8-megapixel camera which takes high-quality photographs using HTC's Instant Capture technology. It also features a good video recorder and movies can be streamed directly from it to your HD TV.

The Sensation XE runs on the Android 2.3 operating system, also known as Gingerbread. In addition to this it has HTC Sense as a user interface, which has been widely acclaimed as being one of the most attractive and customisable interfaces available.

The phone features plenty of connectivity options and can use Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS to connect to the internet and other devices. You can even stream music from your phone on to a compatible device such as a PS3, stereo or TV.

The screen is a very respectable 4.3 inches and it has a very high resolution as well, so you can watch movies or read e-books while on the go. Web browsing is a pleasurable experience and social-networking sites are integrated, so it's a great phone to use to keep on top of all your online activities.

All in all, the HTC Sensation XE is a highly desirable phone that has a number of unique features that really make it stand out from the crowd. It's certainly one of the best music-player mobiles on the market.
