The LTE sporting HTC Vivid for AT&T is the first handset from the Taiwanese company’s U.S. lineup to get an update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The older HTC Sense 3.0 got a bump as well – its version is now 3.6.
Quite naturally, we were curious to put the HTC take on Google’s latest OS through its paces. After all, the HTC Sense 3.6 flavored Android 4.0 ICS will find its way (it actually is already in some parts of the world) to the company’s dual-core Android lineup from last year. Therefore, if you happen to own a member of the aforementioned group of devices, read on to get an idea what will your phone’s interface look like after the major OS update.
The improvements, which the Android 4.0 ICS has brought to the HTC Vivid are a lot. The same goes for Sense 3.6. HTC’s proprietary UI has now brought Beats Audio to the handset, new camera UI and modes, as well as even more options to customize the looks of the OS. Most importantly though, the entire device feels faster after the update. The interface transitions are more fluid than before and there is no lag to be found. See for yourself in the video below.
We will be examining the ICS update from HTC further, so stick around for more!
