HTC has been upgrading all its HTC Sense 4.0 phones to bring some much needed changes to the way legacy menu buttons work. Since HTC’s device features capactive navigation keys instead of virtual ones they needed a sensible way to allow users to access Android 2.x menus.
The original way forced users to put up with a huge, black bar which took up prime real estate at the bottom of the display. This new update eradicates that issue by giving users the option to use a long-press of the recent apps button instead.
HTCInside also notices a new tab button that can be accessed without going into the browser’s menu, better performance, tweaked homescreen animations, and more. This 148.13MB update (which brings build 2.17.401.2) is said to be headed out to devices right now so check for it in the settings menu.
