A quick look at HTC Sense 4.1


As usual, HTC is always looking to improve its software to deliver a better experience to its handsets. While the latest AT&T HTC One X  update to Android 4.0.4 had a few minor tweaks, it looks like HTC may soon have another update which will deliver Android 4.0.4 with HTC Sense 4.1. The software has managed to make its way into the hands of a few folks on XDA-Developers who have already turned it around and backed it into a new ROM for the international HTC One X.

Like the update for the HTC One X on AT&T, Sense 4.1 fixes the  “action overflow” feature in Android 4.0 by removing the menu bar that HTC had placed at the bottom of the screen and  allows users to configure the capacitive multitasking button on the device to access the menu functionality within apps. The second main feature is the return of the Quick Settings tab in the notification shade, giving users direct access to handset settings without having to dive into the main settings page or waste valuable screen real estate with widgets.

We expect HTC will be pushing out Sense 4.1 to the HTC One X, One S and One V in the coming weeks. But if you can’t wait that long, we suggest you check in with your favorite ROM developers to see if you can get Sense 4.1 a little sooner.
