    Hi everyone,
    I am currently looking for an Android phone that can run youtube desktop site smoothly, even at 1080p setting. A friend of mine told me that the new HTC Sensation XE should be able to handle 1080p video, but we currently do not have one to test. Can anyone with the Sensation XE help me verify this by playing the song "Rain over me" by Pitbull ft. Marc Anthony on youtube at 1080p setting? Below is the link:

    Thank you so much for your help.

    sort of played, sort of not. I couldn't play it externally in youtube app as it said not available on mobiles or something.

    I played it in window as above and played it smooth in 1080p, although couple of times when moving about/scrolling it crashed and went back to home screen

    Also when I was playing in 720 or 1080 I had a strange line in the middle of the video, unsure if its the video or the phone.

    hope this helps

    Thank you for your help. The reason I am bringing this up because I am considering buying either the Sensation XE or Galaxy S2. Just to clarify with you, do you have Flash 11 installed when you played that video?

    Mine works perfectly with some 1080p videos and stutters with others. 720p ones work perfectly all the time. Tested with built in browser, Opera mini and Dolphin, all three have basically the same performance.

    The phone display can't actually show 1080p so what's the point in making it try?
