UK HTC Sensation Android 2.3.4 update now live for unbranded phones

HTC’s latest Android 2.3.4 update for its new Sensation has now launched in the UK, according to various reports on Twitter, Facebook, via email and everywhere. Which is about time, as the update has been available in Europe for quite some time, plus Vodafone UK launched its own branded version a few weeks ago too.

Now everyone in the UK with an unbranded HTC Sensation not tied into a network ought to be receiving the update notification.

As for what’s different after the update, well, not a huge deal. According to Vodafone it brought in “stability and performance updates” and also tweaked browser stability – plus it introduced the ability to take screencaptures on the device. But nothing huge or amazing.

    ALMOST bought a HTC Sensation at the weekend (£260 on the carphone warehouse deal). The Ugly misshaped back cover put me off. What were they thinking?

  2. I quite like the back of the HTC Sensation. How the Incredible S on the other hand, what WERE they thinking there :s. Almost got one but, the back put me off. Glad I didn’t, as I did get the Sensation and love it :D. My partner has an Xperia Arc and wants to change for a Sensation now as well. On Vodafone, so got mine a couple weeks ago (seems like only a week ago though). 2.3.4 has also been released in the UK for the HTC Flyer, well for Wifi only model any way.

  3. Btw, which deal was it at the Carphone Warehouse? As I said my partner wants the Sensation now, so we’re looking for a good deal :).

      Sorry, my mistake, it was the INCREDIBLE S that was on offer at the CPW, not the SENSATION.

      Now it makes sense… Hideous back cover…

    • 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…

      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.
