If you are unhappy with your HTC Sensations GPS accuracy then this news is sure to bring joy. First of it’s kind Over the Air software update (targeted mainly at bug fix but not feature enhancement) was rolled out recently. With a update file size of about 28 MB, the OTA updates version is 1.35.401.1.
To update your HTC with the latest bug-fix:
- Go to ‘Settings‘
- Then ‘About Phone‘
- ‘System Updates‘
- and select the ‘Check‘ option for Update.
This has been tested by a few at XDA developers forum to be working fine. While talking about GPS accuracy, you should be aware of the fact that most Android phones still have issues with it and it’s one of the common complaints from Android phone owners.
The last couple of weeks has been good one for HTC Sensation owners as first it was Skype video calling which was enabled for HTC Sensation phones and now an update which promises to improve the performance and some at the same time improve some existing features on HTC.
Very recently I was pointing out that it was not possible to make skype video calls on Samsung Galaxy phones. I was bit too early in voicing my concern as I just read that Skype video calling is indeed possible now !
Read the news on iGyaan, and they also linked to Droid-life who apparently have found a hack to get Skype video calling work with HTC Sensation.
I need to update my friend who was looking to get it work. Oh btw did I mention you need to be on Android 2.3 to enjoy this feature ? The earlier apps were fine on Android 2.2, so upgrading to 2.3 is the only homework you need to do to use skype video calling.
