In Short

The HTC Sensation XE is a refresh of HTC's earlier flagship phone, the Sensation. The Sensation XE sports a faster 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon CPU (up from 1.2GHz), and a larger 1730 mAh battery.

The stand-out feature, though, is Beats Audio -- the Sensation XE is the first HTC device to ship with Beats support, following HTC's purchase of a majority share in Beats Audio in mid-2011.
