With this new variant HTC have changed both the internals and externals of the machines design and in effect it is a new machine in its own right and not a part of the original Sensation family."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/adt/auto/1324661444.usr309.jpg" style="border: 0;" /></p><p>This is a very detailed review that covers the hardware as well as many details about the software.&nbsp; For me, I think making a phone these days with a 4.7" diagonal and only 480x800 resolution (only 198dpi) should be a crime.&nbsp; Not only is the resolution low for the size but the aspect ratio is not as good as 16:9 for holding in your hand.&nbsp; In other words, the Galaxy Nexus has about the same size screen but it will not be so wide in your hand due to the aspect ratio difference.&nbsp; Of course the Galaxy Nexus has a 720x1280 resolution too.&nbsp; Anyway, the Sensation XL does have a fast single core 1.5GHz processor and 768MB of RAM as well as 16GB of built in storage.&nbsp; Take a look at the review for more details and lots of pictures.</p>
