Android version and market relevance

New smartphone from the company HTC got the name HTC Sensation XL and was announced in October 2011. This model is released in the series of smartphones Sensation.

Smartphone HTC Sensation XL works out of the box under the operating system Android version 2.3 Gingerbread. Not every android smartphone boasts that it can be updated to a newer version, but in our case the model HTC Sensation XL updated to Android version 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (look in the catalog all smartphones on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich).

Screen, body and battery

Medium size 4.7-inch screen, made by technology S-LCD, installed in the smartphone HTC Sensation XL.

The larger the screen, the larger the case. But in addition to the width and height of the hull, its thickness is important. At HTC Sensation XL the thickness of the case is 9.9 mm, which turns out to be very thick. Today, there are many smartphones with a slim body.

The battery and the operating time also depend on the screen size. At HTC Sensation XL installed battery for 1 600 mAh, and, as you can guess, it will not last long. We advise you to look in the catalog on smartphones with a powerful battery, there is a good choice from different manufacturers.

Main camera and selfie camera

In front of the screen there is a selfie-camera on the 1.3 MP. Among all the cameras, this we attributed to the segment weak cameras. The main camera got 8 MP, located on the back of the body. We defined it in the segment very weak cameras at the moment. If you have a little more money, then we suggest adding and buying one of the camera phones, which we sorted separately in our catalog.

Processor and Internal Memory

And write a few words about the performance of HTC Sensation XL. Of course, the very first thing that will be discussed is the processor. The model received a 1-core processor Snapdragon S2.

The second performance characteristic in our opinion is the amount of RAM. The HTC Sensation XL has 0.768 installed on the RAM.

The built-in flash memory of this model has the volume 16 GB

Price for HTC Sensation XL: buy or not to buy?

Life is fleeting, and the life of a smartphone on the mobile market in general can be compared with the life of a butterfly. And all because the producers of android-smartphones do not always want to support their devices and prefer to release a new model in six months. Therefore, our task is to help you choose the actual smartphone today, which is being sold and will be still relevant for at least the next six months. If HTC Sensation XL you find among DROID smartphones in our catalog, you can safely buy it now, and if you do not find it, then its better already do not buy.

However, official sales HTC Sensation XL began in November 2011. The manufacturer said the price of $170 without taxes and fees. With such a price level on HTC Sensation XL, we placed it in the price segment “Affordable smartphones from $100 to $200”.

Buy HTC Sensation XL you can in any store (or on the Internet, or in the electronics supermarket), we just advise you to see live on the smartphone and hold it in your hands before buying.

We picked up these models at a similar price.
