HTC has impressed us with their Sensation line of mobile phones, and their latest offering doesn’t disappoint as well. Here’s Sensation XE, starting things of with a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor. On the outside, there isn’t much difference between the XE and its predecessor, aside from the Beats logo at the back. This is because the Sensation XE is HTC’s first audiophile-oriented phone that it even comes with a Beats earphone upon purchase. To compensate for all the music playing, as well as the double processing power, they’ve improved the battery to a rating of 1730mAh. Storage expansion is also a must for all those music that’s waiting for the Sensation XE treatment — which gets a boots with the Beats bundle. The phone unlocks music functions when the Beats earphone upon attachment, though it’s purely software controls and enhancements. Overall, Music is the key player with the Sensation XE and if you’re one with that crowd, it won’t disappoint you.
