Manufacturer's Description

The HTC Sensation XL with Beats Audio™ is the perfect personal entertainment smartphone. A 4.7" touchscreen displays pictures, videos and the internet in incredible detail, while the built-in Beats Audio™ software creates a mesmerising audio experience. Plus, a new 8MP camera lets you take ultra sharp photos and record HD videos whenever you want.

Mighty 4.7" screen.
The HTC Sensation XL with Beats Audio™ gives you a whole new mobile visual experience. The 4.7" touchscreen uses Super LCD technology, meaning everything from HD videos to internet sites are sharp and ultra detailed. As the screen is so roomy, typing for texts or emails is an absolute breeze.

Incredible sounds.
The integrated Beats Audio™ software vastly improves and enhances your audio experience. When used with the included UrBeats™ headsets, the device automatically selects the perfect settings for the Beats headphones, giving you a fuller bass, crisper vocals and a higher level of sound quality, exactly as the artists intended. No matter how many songs you’ve got, the XL will have a place for them with its 16GB of memory.

8MP camera with HD video recording.
Capture the best moments of your life with the integrated 8MP camera. Featuring a 28mm wide lens for stunning wide and panoramic shots, and a BSI sensor for excellent low-light photography performance, you’ll never miss a thing. It also supports 720p HD video recording for amazing home movies. Features such as Bluetooth and DLNA let you share your media fast wirelessly and there’s even a 1.3MP front facing camera for video calls.

Faster browsing experience.
With the latest HTC Sense 3.5, the menus of the HTC Sensation™ XL are original, good looking and intuitive. Combine this smooth software with Android 2.3 and a 1.5GHz processor and you get a sharp and fast system that does what you want. It also supports multitasking, meaning you can surf the web, play music and switch to different apps whenever you need to without losing your place or missing a beat.

Video entertainment.
Test out the 4.7" screen’s capabilities with HTC Watch, a steaming service that lets you choose from a huge selection of classic or brand new movies. The Progressive Downloading technology boosts streaming and eliminates loading, letting you watch your chosen films instantly. The 4.7" high-quality screen really shows off video, while Beats Audio brings audio to life.

The latest HTC Sense 3.5.
If you want an Android powered phone with a difference, check out the Sensation XL. The beautiful HTC Sense 3.5 is smoother and sleeker, with some great touches. If the weather forecast is stormy, you’ll hear thunderclaps from the forecast screen, and the active lockscreen lets you check up on your portfolio, view your friend’s status, and much more.

If you’re a music fan who’s into their videos and films, the HTC Sensation XL is a phone that’ll suit you perfectly. If you’re also a big texter and into photos, definitely put it on your short list.
