The XE is the second BeatsAudio-branded smartphone we have watched, later the HTC Sensation XL.The HTC Sensation XE is a far more powerful beast, while, with adual-core 1.5GHz processor instead of the XL's single-core chip. Itis as well a Beats-branded handset, and thus has a stylish black andred color scheme and arrives on 78 a pair of Beats-branded in-earheadphones.
They have a inbuilt microphone andinline remote control, and although they no doubt sound better ascompared to the headphones you generally acquire on a phone, they arenot brilliant. When the Beats headphones are plugged in, by defaultHTC's music player affords you the alternative of having Beats Audioswitched on or off. On Beats turned on, music has bass and trebleturned up to the max, and while this works reasonably considerable onmost tracks, it drowns out the mid scope and can be tiring to listento. We preferred the warmer sound we acquired when we turned Beatsoff.
When we plugged in a different set ofheadphones we had the choice of enabling Beats Audio or using HTCenhancer. Beats Audio afforded us a very bright sound like earlier,but HTC enhancer only had loads of bass, which instead overwhelmedthe rest of the sound. We acquired the best sound from both sets ofheadphones only by applying the Android version of Winamp, whichcreated our music sound less processed including all.
Like a phone instead of a music player,the Sensation XE is great. The fast dual-core processor assists itspeed along, and battery life is a reasonable seven hours and 20minutes, which compares considerable on other Android smartphones butis not a patch with the iPhone 4S's 12-hour life. The display is evenimpressive. Its high 540x960 result creates text and images sharp,and there is enough of contrast. The display is as well too brightthat we detected the middle brightness setting more as compared toadequate for general use.
