If you don’t want to wait for the OTA update notification you can check for the update manually. From the home screen, press the menu key, then about phone, select the HTC software update then ‘check’. Follow the on-screen prompts, the phone will verify the download then flash the new firmware. Wait for the update to complete and your phone will restart after the updates to Android 2.3.4 /software version 1.50.531.1 are installed.
I haven’t noticed any appreciable difference in performance since installing the latest update.
