Anyhow I guess uptill now all ur problems must be solved. Since WiFi and data connection on off issue got resolved after a mini update from HTC. For settings.
Where as after start up application optimization is normal I guess so I wouldn't worry that much about it.
One more issue in running apps media process keeps crashing and stuck in restarting at its own will and I didn't find ne solution. Only thing I do is manually kill after each restart just in case it's draining my battery.

I'm quietly installing apps and finding (so far) all is OK. If I do find the app at fault (unless it was an untidy uninstall of something that left junk behind), I'll let you know.

I'll add an app a day until such times as we find the culprit, if we don't then it may be that an upgrade to ICS might require a factory reset to clear out any stuff/apps left over so you get a cleaner install. Or, of course it may be a problem with ICS on my HTC.
I'll let you know what I find.

Just upgraded my O2 contract HTC Sensation XE (with Beats) which was working reasonably well beforehand is now restarting every few minutes. Occasionally it crashes but mostly restarts. Barely any time to use it before it dies.
Will drop it in to O2 as phone is still under guarantee.

The only problem jam facing and many other almost everyone that when you play video in landscape mode the brightness decreases this is very annoying I have tried every player

ICS upgrade is very problematic for every HTC Sensation users I know. The phone shutsdown 3-6 times a day and even while charging the phone.

HTC should have seen this right after they release the HTC upgrade.Its already June and it been 3 months already but still no update is being released from HTC.

ICS works perfectly on Samsung Galaxy S II. Samsung knows what they are doing when it comes to the firmware they have to use for their products. Unlike HTC, very promising but in the end it very frustating.

I might give up my HTC Sensation if after June, HTC still dont have action for this matter. I will probably go with Galaxy S III.

Had my Sensation XE for just under a week now and to my joy had ICS pre installed (on virgin mobile UK), really happy with the build quality and performance, only things that I think need work, is the camera (previous phone was Nokia N8) and battery life, maybe a bigger battery? as has a 1730 mAh, maybe a 2500mAh?
