As much as HTC Sense users love their devices, there’s one thing you can’t deny: boot times on a Sense device are significantly longer than on other devices. HTC thankfully noticed that, as well, and they’ve optimized their boot process on the latest version of Sense – featured on the Desire Z and Desire HD – to chop it down to under 10 seconds every time (as we learned before). Here’s a quick video showing you the real deal on a Desire Z, and here’s my formal request to HTC to get this new version onto the rest of their devices. [Android Police]
