Processor & OS
HTC Sensation XE features Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread OS, along with 1.5 Ghz Dual core Qualcomm MSM 8260 Snapdragon processor, which is good and a kind of first to have 1.5 ghz dual core processor, but we are not too much happy with the gingerbread version, as even the latest Samsung galaxy y features 2.3.5 gingerbread, so htc should have made some efforts to release it with at least 2.3.5 onboard. Hopefully they will provide the update for such an expensive device.
