T-Mobile HTC Amaze 4G Android 4.0 update now available
Android 4.0 for the T-Mobile HTC Amaze 4G has arrived. HTC Amaze 4G owners can now manually download the Android 4.0 update to their phones by pressing Menu > Settings > About Phone > HTC Software Updates > Check. After the download starts, follow the on-screen instructions to finish the installation process.
After the update has installed, the HTC Amaze 4G will be running on Android 4.0.3 with HTC Sense 3.6. There are plenty of new software features included in the Ice Cream Sandwich update (face-unlock, new folders, improved multi-tasking), but most users will instantly recognize the UI changes delivered by the latest version of Sense. The new UI is much lighter than the previous iteration and should deliver a smoother experience and enhanced performance.
Before you begin the update process, we recommend you have at least a 50% battery charge on your device. Let us know how the installation process goes and if you run into any issues with the update. We’re sure you’ll enjoy all the new features, but be sure to leave us a comment and let us know what you like the most in the Android 4.0 update for the HTC Amaze.
