Android 4.0 is breathing new life into HTC phones across the globe with improvements to the OS and updated version of HTC Sense. We all love the new features packed into Ice Cream Sandwich, but if you own an HTC phone that is scheduled for an Android 4.0 update you might be more thankful for the phone’s performance improvements. A few weeks ago, we reported that the HTC Velocity’s benchmark numbers spiked after receiving the Android 4.0 update. Now we’ve received confirmation that it was not an isolated case.
Since the HTC Vivid is skinned with Sense 3.6, which customizes many of the features and applications, it’s hard to say if the new skin or the updated version of Android should be credited for the increase in handset performance. Either way, we’re hoping that all Android 4.0 updates for all manufacturers show similar improvements.
