T-Mobile HTC Sensation 4G Android 4.0 update now available

T-Mobile HTC Sensation 4G Android 4.0 update now available

Android 4.0 for the T-Mobile HTC Sensation 4G has arrived. Sensation 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 Sensation 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.

So get to it! 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 Sensation.

  1. Maybe this means the HTC Rezound update to Ice Cream Sandwich is coming soon…the Rezound is pretty similar to the Sensation XL released internationally. Please, Verizon! 🙂

    I am looking for a manual update for my Sensation 4g phone. Since I updated the software my current manual no longer functions properly. It would be nice to have a version # on the manual so that software updates match the manual.
    In the PC world when Firmware or sofware is updated a small description of the changed features is usually issued at the same time. This saves calling in to your tech support to get info on why the menus are different from those in the manual.

    I updated my phone because my IT person recommended I accept updates to keep my phone current. I have an IT person because I am not that technology savvy. I haven’t read much about updates in the past, in part because I didn’t understand them when I tried, but primarily because I mistakenly thought updates were to improve performance, fix prior problems, etc. The term “update” in itself suggests something BETTER. I did NOT expect to have features taken away, such as loss of hotspot usage, which is something I really needed. For those of you who feel superior because you knew better, researched the update in advance, and feel everyone else deserves what they got, congratulations. Pat yourselves on the back for being so smart. I still think it is unconscionable for a company to cause such a costly outcome, cause loss of such an important feature, knowing there will be many people who will simply select update on their phones because they believe it will be SAFE to do so. It’s a breach of consumer trust to provide an “update” only to penalize the consumer afterwards and then point the blame back at the consumer. People are watching every penny these days because they have to. I have obviously learned a painful lesson, but whoever was involved in the decision to make people pay an additional monthly fee to continue using what had previously been provided – SHAME ON YOU.
