HTC Sensation XL with Beats Audio available today. UK Pricing

The bohemoth that is the 4.7" Android bearing HTC Sensation XL, brother to the equally well sized Titan, has become available from all carriers here in sunny UK.  Here's where to pick it up from, and how much it'll set you back.

If you're too cool for all this phone contract business, SIM-free is a rather beastly £486 from

Want the phone for free on a contract?  £31 per month is the best deal we've found so far, courtesy of Orange.  The deal gets you 600 minutes, unlimited texts and a rather low 250mb internet.  O2 have the same price; but with no data, which is kind of pointless, so lets not mess with these kids and breeze straight on over to 3.  £35 per month: 2000 minutes, 5000 texts and unlimited internet* (translation of that magical *?  3GB).  All of that is comfortably enough, and you only pay £50 for the phone.  Everyone's a winner.

Not happy with what the XL has to offer?  Maybe you'd like to see the Galaxy Nexus or iPhone 4S pricings first?  So you should you savvy consumer.  Watch a video walkthrough of Sensation XL for your reserved judgement.

UPDATE: All contracts listed here come with free Beats Solo headphones.
