HTC Sensation XL specs


Yeah, that would be with no accounts syncing, no Social Network widgets, etc. No way you'd get that kind of standby on an Android phone.

You get that by having absolutely zero apps running (including background apps like, oh say, the phone or calendar or... well anything), having every radio turned off, having the screen turned off... Basically if you turn your phone off, that's how long before the battery naturally discharges :P.

Ever noticed how every phone ever advertises crazy standby battery life? It's a BS stat.

A 4.7 inch screen with a WVGA resolution. 768 MB of RAM. Single 1.5 GHz processor. HTC...I know you are using Beats to market this thing. But that doesn't mean you can just hash it together with such mediocre specs. I'm not meaning to sound like a snob. But this is the reason Android has such a bad rep. Nobody cares about real world performance. Lol.

And I don't think that all of Android owners are spec whoring every device that comes out. Some people want a phone because of that feature, others just want a phone that works. If it isn't for you, it isn't for you.

I was mostly joking. It just concerns me that HTC can get away with taking "old" tech and throwing a Beats logo on it and still turn a profit. The EVO 3D has been modded to have Beats audio, showing that it is a software thing. Specs don't matter. But...specs matter.

In any event I feel the same. Virtually take an old model and change the design and slap some sweet beats to it and voila! Corporate greed :D P.S (I'm a spec person for the most part as well).

Wtf. 480 by 800 resolution on a 4.7" display? Are they nuts? I'm not going anywhere near this device, despite how nice it looks.

True!! If Rumers are correct and Galaxy Nexus is going to have a 4.6 inch screen then I won't go near to that device either, I think HTC Amaze is my next smartphone.

The Nexus Prime will effectively have a 4.3 inch screen. 4.65 inches is including the on screen Android buttons at the bottom.

No 720p

Not going anywhere near this thing.
Seriously. If this is the direction HTC is headed I'm going to go check out the Prime. I've been a fan of HTC since my mogul and this just ain't gonna cut it.
