About HTC Sensation XL

The HTC Sensation XL is unique amongst smartphones for its massive 4.7 inch screen. Perfect for watching video files on the go, it's big enough to satisfy those who don't quite want to commit to a smartphone while still being portable and easy to use even in its most basic phone functions.

The internal storage isn't big enough to match its screen, and the Sensation XL is only running on a single-core processor – unusual amongst other smartphones these days – but it's still a smooth and stylish phone with a good battery life and an easy to use interface. Highly recommended for those looking for a good quality MP3 player, too, the HTC Sensation XL is an elegant and unique phone for those who believe that size really does matter.
