HTC Sensation 2.3.4 update now available for Vodafone users

If you went down the subsidised contract route and bought your HTC Sensation through the Vodafone network, today is a day you’re unlikely to ever forget – the network has now launched that Android 2.3.4 update for owners of Branded Vodafone Sensations.

Here’s Vodafone’s standard announcement of what’s new and different and hopefully better, which is more than we got out of HTC:

Stability and performance updates

How do I get the latest software?

Over the air

To see if the software upgrade is available, navigate from the Home screen, press MENU, and then tap Settings. Scroll down the screen, and then tap About phone > System software updates. On the System software updates screen, tap Check now.

Checking the software version

That didn’t take long, did it?

    One thing i did notice in the 2.3.4 version (unbranded) was that it’s possible to take a screenshot of your phone these days without rooting or S-OFF.

    Just hold down the power button for 1-2 seconds and press home and it takes a picture of your current display. Pretty sure this wasn’t the case in 2.3.3 as everyone on xda says your phone has to be rooted and S-OFF.

    So. hooray! :o)

      That’s such a nice feature. The S II lets you do that, too, without needing root or anything.

    I’ve got an unbranded HTC sensation in the UK, that is saying that no update is available :(

    anyone else in the UK got an update to 2.3.4?

    • Ye I literally just got mine now.

      Does anyone have any idea on the percentage improvements…for example 5% battery life improvement?

        Was this for Unbranded Sensation or Vodafone? I still haven’t got any update for my unbranded Sensation. Looks like Vodafone is still having the exclusivity in UK which they had at the launch.

    • Sony Xperia Z2 review

      This is Sony’s latest go at producing a high-spec Android flagship model, with the Xperia Z2 ticking every one of 2014’s must-have tech bullet points. It has a large 5.2-inch 1080p display.

    • LG/Google Nexus 5 review

      Nexus 5It’s smooth to use, the 1080p display is sharp, clear and bright, the device is extremely light and thin and therefore very pocketable and portable — much more so than other 5-inch phones we’ve used. And yet… we’re a bit unimpressed by the overall package…

    • HTC One V review

      The HTC One V is HTC’s third entry in its high-profile new HTC One range, offering a smaller 3.7″ display running on a single-core 1GHz processor.
