The Sensation phone, the XE, has arrived on Three.
The network is offering the handset, which comes with Beats audio technology and UrBeats in-ear headphones, for £400 on PAYG.
Beats Audio promises a high level of sonic quality, in fact “studio quality” sound the PR blurb has claimed, although it’s certainly clear the music-focused Sensation is one of the better choices for fans of Spotify and the like.
The XE boasts a 4.3 inch S-LCD touchscreen, a 1.5GHz processor, 8 megapixel camera capable of HD recording, up to 16GB of memory and Android 2.3.4 (Gingerbread).
If you’d prefer a contract offering, then Three’s tariffs start from £30 per month with the phone free.
Alternatively you can get it on The One Plan with all-you-can-eat data for an unlimited (theoretical) amount of music streaming, plus 2000 minutes and 5000 texts for £37 per month.
Sylvia Chind, head of handsets at Three said: “Taking on board the huge amount of interest we had from our customers to range this great device, we’re delighted to now offer the HTC Sensation XE.”
“Featuring Beats audio built-in, people can listen to music in superior-style, and coupled with Three’s unique all-you-can-eat data offering, they can download as many songs as they like without having to worry about out-of-bundle data charges.”
PAYG customers can pay £15 for a month of All in One 15, giving them 300 minutes, 3000 texts and all-you-can-eat data for the month.
