Android 2.3.4 being pushed to HTC Sensation 4G
T-Mobile's HTC Sensation 4G is getting an OTA update to Android 2.3.4 / software version 1.45.531.1. The rollout has started tonight, but T-Mobile says that the rollout will continue for weeks and not be complete until the end of September. The update includes a number of improvements such as:

  • Software stability
  • Improved battery life 
  • Improvements to Trace dictionary
  • Improvements to screen responsiveness
  • Improvements to video playback
  • Improvements  regarding device reboot / power off
  • Improvements to icon  pixilation
  • Improvements to Wi-Fi connection
  • Improvements to screen/photo resolution 

Although unconfirmed, it's likely this update will also add support for the newly released bootloader unlocking tools offered by HTCDev.com, because the 2.3.4 update also brought this support to the EVO 3D. 

One thing we're concerned about is that the release notes from T-Mobile don't mention video chat in GTalk, a feature which seems to only appear on the Nexus S. Can anyone out there with a Sensation confirm no video chat support?

I just installed this same update on my Evo 3D and can confirm that sadly there is no gtalk video chat. Wtf I thought that was the whole point of Android 2.3.4!?!

Excellent, makes me feel slightly better about the death of webOS. I was acitually seriously considering a pre3 haven't got the update yet but if it improves the battery and UI stability its definitely for the best.

I just receieved the update software version 1.45.531.1. as what the site said improved battery life and software stability, as well as numerous improvements to the trace dictionary, screen responsiveness, video playback, rebooting and powering off, screen and photo resolution, and the Wi-Fi connection added htc likes and quick lookup and yes VIDEO CHAT on GTALK is included.
