O2 has begun rolling out Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread to HTC Sensation owners, for a much-improved smartphone experience all-round.
Users began reporting that the operating system bump was available for over-the-air download this morning on the network’s forums, after a kinda lengthy wait that we’re assuming is down to network testing and the need to ensure O2’s services work with the newer iteration of Google’s platform.
The 2.3.4 version, which landed on Vodafone last month, is something of a minor update, all things told, with nary in the way of sexy, new features.
However, it’s still well worth having. Not least because it kyboshes bugs and brings performance optimisations that we’re assured will give browsing speeds a much-welcome boost and reduce overheating.
Naturally, if you’re planning on getting the update now-ish, it’s a good idea to use a wireless connection to avoid giving your 3G mobile internet allowance a whipping. And, as you should all know by now, you ought to be backing up your data before starting the download too.
Last week, Three confirmed plans to push out Android 2.3.4 to the HTC Sensation “soon”. Once it’s live and up for grabs, we’ll be sure to let you know.
