It's not coming to the United States, but if you're looking for a nice Android phone to purchase unlocked, the HTC Sensation XL could be the phone. Packing a 1.5 GHz single-core Scorpion CPU, Sensation XL has a 4.7-inch Super LCD (WVGA) display, 8-megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording, a front-facing shooter, 1,600 mAh battery, and Android 2.3.5 with HTC's Sense 3.5. It comes with Beats Audio built in, so you'll get a pair of iBeats headphones along with the usual accessories.
Despite the single-core processor, the Sensation XL is a zippy unit that performs better in day-to-day tests than US devices like Verizon's HTC Rezound and AT&T's HTC Vivid. Is it worth buying unlocked (and unsubsidized), or should you wait for the devices from CES? Part 2 of 2.
