Just last week, we talked about the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich being pushed out to the masses who own a HTC Vivid in their hands, and so that happened over the course of a week. It goes without saying that with an introduction of a spanking new mobile operating system update for a particular piece of hardware, surely performance improvements are to be expected? The same can be said for the HTC Vivid this time around, where the folks over at VentureBeat decided to test out just how much better the HTC Vivid has become with this new update without having to tweak the hardware one bit. It seems that a 66% performance boost in select tests when pitted against Android 2.3 Gingerbread ought to settle just about all arguments as to whether you should make the update jump or not. It seems that battery life of the HTC Vivid has also improved, with some folks touting even an extra hour of use. Now that is certainly worth updating your smartphone for, anyone else have similar miraculous stories to share?
