Owning a flagship Android handset doesn't necessarily mean enjoying the latest version of Google's operating system. 

In the case of the HTC Sensation, many have been waiting for an Android 2.3.4 update to bring it in line with other leading dual-core competition. Vodafone users were first to gain the latest version last month, next in line are O2 customers, who have been reporting 2.3.4 making an appearance on handsets this morning.

You will want to get yourself hooked up to a Wi-Fi network to download the update smoothly. Changes include Google Talk support as well as bug fixes and general stability improvements.

We particularly liked the HTC Sensation before the update, so expect it to be even better now. Shame that it no longer retains the HTC flagship title, this has been usurped by the HTC Sensation XE, which includes a faster 1.5GHz processor and 1GB of RAM. There is also Beats Audio stuck inside the new XE and a pair of Beats headphones shipped out with the handset. 

HTC Sensation owner? Powerful enough for ya?

The baby of the Lint team, Hunter has been a tech fan since he bought his first MiniDisc..and what a waste of money that was. He began writing about electronics at the age of 16 and hasn't stopped since. Nowadays he fulfils his mobile phone and gaming obsession whilst attempting to distract people from his bizarre name. Regular meetings with the Gladiators crew see Hunter often returning to work battered and bruised. Considers himself a music obsessive, was once the most highly decorated scout in the country. Fan of trousers.
