HTC Amaze 4G Ice Cream Sandwich Walkthrough Review


The updates for Android 4.0 with Sense 3.6 started rolling out on the 21st of May for the Amaze 4G. I finally got mine yesterday and have been using my updated Amaze 4G for a day or so. New features include the Recent Apps menu, revised menu structures, new fonts, face recognition, and more. I also did a quick comparison with Sense 4.0 on the HTC One X to give you a better Idea of the difference. So far I have seen a 20%-30% battery life increase, snappier performance on sense and Android 4.0. General Smother operations.
