We always enjoy software updates on our phones, especially when carriers and OEMs push out update which fixes issues that were introduced in previous updates. T-Mobile and HTC have a new update available for the HTC Sensation 4G which improves the screen’s responsiveness, handset stability, introduces a new dictionary update for HTC Trace, but also fixed the icon pixilation and screenshot issues which somehow made it through the different testing phases with the last update for the phone.

T-Mobile will be gradually pushing out the update for the HTC Sensation over the next few weeks, but you can always try to manually trigger the update by pressing Menu > Settings > About Phone > HTC software updates > Check.

Below, we’ve included T-Mobile’s official list of fixes, updates, and new features that are included in the software update. So what are you waiting for? Download the update and let us know if your phone runs any better. Let’s hope T-Mobile and HTC actually did their homework this time, giving HTC Sensation 4G users and update that makes the phone better, not worse.
