|HTC Incredible S Specs|
HTC Incredible S used to come with Android 2.3 Gingerbread pre-installed, but the good news is, if you happen to own this phone, you must be glad to hear that you can now upgrade the Android OS in this device with the newer one, the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. To be exact, this ICS update will come with the version of Android 4.0.4 and it repaints the “Sense” UI on this phone with much better looking interface a la HTC’s User interface.
HTC Sense Comparison with HTC One X
However, compared to the UI of Ice Cream Sandwich that is running the HTC One X, unfortunately, you won’t be able to find the cool 3D and transition effects on the HTC Incredible S that can only be found on HTC One X. Well, the reason is because the HTC sense that is running the HTC incredible S is slated to be the HTC Sense version 3.6, while the high-end HTC One X gets the version 4.0. So lucky you, HTC One X owners!!
However (again), it’s still great that HTC Incredible S can now be upgraded to Ice Cream Sandwich, since we all know that HTC hasn’t been really active in updating its old devices with ICS updates (unlike Sony Mobile that really cares to bring ICS updates to its Xperia devices) and only launches latest handsets that already come with ICS pre-installed in the first place. Anyway, this ICS update surely brings now improvement and boost, especially on every core functionality of the device.
So if you own this device and you don’t want to miss the excitement of Ice Cream Sandwich community, then what are you waiting for? The ICS update is now available to download and it weighs around 250MB, so you better have a fast and steady WiFi connection when downloading this update to avoid disconnection. Unfortunately, this ICS update is currently available only for the unlocked versions of HTC Incredible S.
ICS Update for Carrier Variants
But if you happen to buy the on-contract variant of this phone, don’t you worry about it because the ICS update will definitely arrive anytime soon. So you better check out the carrier that you’re using on this phone, so you can be informed immediately about the update. Good luck!
