Hi guys,
Before writing this review, i would like to put things in perspective. An Ipad2, 16gb, wifi 3g retails for INR 36900. This phone is INR 600 more. Let's explore this a little more:

1). CPU: An Ipad has the monster ARM cortex A9 DUAL core CPU. HTC XL has an old and forgotten SINGLE core scorpion processor. A little bit of googling will tell you why this can be a bad comparison.

2). Graphics card: No one in the industry can match the graphics card of the Ipad currently (PowerVR SGX543...

One thing i don't get is why so it a flagship device?no...not exactly..because of beats enhancement...give me a break..if i want that i would go for sensation XE which has dual core processor and which is less pricey..does htc think this is first ICS phone like Galaxy Nexus or the buyers are not so intelligent or this phone shines among others like galaxy s2/nexus/note...they don't even give a amoled display and not even an expansion slot ...r u kidding with me for such a price..o...

Bad Business

I am a big fan of HTC and own a Desire S. HTC builds solid devices but this one is not a rocker! I recently had a glimpse at this phone and played around for some time but wouldn't recommend to anyone. If someone is looking for a big display then Galaxy note is a much much better option with a gorgeous display. HTC needs to learn how to do business in India. If I have to buy a new phone, i'll wait for Galaxy Nexus which is expected to be launched soon in India.I'd start with the cons first:

great phone but badly priced

ya am using both s2 and htc sensation xl.when u use xl its like a master piece in your hand.the screen is so awesome nothing can beat it.may be its a single core but got a 1.5ghz processor with which it can deliver the punch.
i compared both s2 and xl and xl won in almost all aspects.wait for some time to get the price down and its worth to buy.

What was HTC thinking ! Disappointed!

After launching few of the best android phones like incredible S and sensation ,HTC has made a blunder.
OVERPRICED buy galaxy note instead or go for sensation XE.

Only plus pint that i can see is 'THE WHITE' colour handset :-/
HTC should launch older models in white.

Best mobile i have used

This is a great handset.Although its not dual-core its quite fast and the feel is great.The beats headset provided gives best sound output,better than any headset of any mobile in the market.The camera and touch is very good like all the HTC mobiles have.Dropped it 2 times till now,but still working.Once you use this for a while you will fall in love with this and you wont use another mobile(atleast for a few months,as there are too many coming into the market each week)

Micromax Canvas is btr!

Look at the Micromax Canvas if you like the config this phone has. That is the same thing and MUCH cheaper. (Well almost the same :P)
The point is this sucks. Look at the One series.
I have no clue why this is still in the HTC line up when they themselves have much better phones. Well....its only in India that they have this phone. They want to get rid of their stock I guess.

Don't have words why HTC has to rob customers ????

Even Samsung Galaxy R I9103 @ Rs. 20999 has Dual Core,Super Clear LCD,Li-Ion, 1650 mAh battery.Samsung Galaxy Note N-7000 @ Rs. 32000/- is much much better phone than then and the Most technically advanced also.
I would rate it 0/5

HTC Sensation XL

With recent HTC launches it seems that the guys at HTC have lost the pulse of the market and are not abreast with competition. Samsung is way ahead with LG, Motorola & Sony following. Earlier HTC offered good phones with innovative features while the competition was playing catch up now the tables have turned and HTC has become a follower. HTC Sensation XE/XL are inferior to Samsung Galaxy SII, Galaxy Note and Motorola RAZR XT910. Even HTC Rhyme is nothing but repackaged HTC Desire S. HTC has...
