It really does, going from Gingerbread to ICS on my Sensation was a huge difference. The entire phone feels way faster overall.

I have the custom ROM Android Revolution HD installed and it gives me better battery life. So I would expect better battery life on the official release too.

Sry for the late reply.

Yea HTC was smart to do this with their "current gen" phones. While they might never get full ICS SENSE 4.0, this much needed and improved Sense 3.6 is awesome.

Why still release for HTC VIVID instead of the Atrix 4G when it came out a year before that AT&T?

Atrix 4G came out in Feb 2011 and Vivid came out in Oct. 2011. That is not a year. They will push out the updates for ICS that the Manufactures give them. Also the Vivid is a LTE device while Atrix 4g or even Atrix 2 do not contain LTE. AT&T is smart to push it out to LTE devices before HSPA+ or HSPA devices.
