    Default how to tell what Android version a phone has?

    Gingerbread, Ice Cream Sandwich etc ... how can I tell which version my phone is running since going into settings --> about and settings --> software update phone gives me numbers not names. Being a version dummy I don't know how to tell by the numbers.

    Menu> Settings > About phone > Software information.

    Look under the first line "Android Version " and if you are stock, it should say 2.3.4 which is gingerbread.

    Android version: 2.3.4 so Gingerbread, thank you! Be nice if they just spelled it out in Version Dummy English, LOL!

    Looks like the Rezound is a little behind since there are now 3.0 and 4.0 out there. Ahhh, gotta love technology.

    3.0 is for android tablets. 4.0 you'll see most likely in April or may. Htc sucks at updating there os they have to much bloat.

    You can also use on your phone's web browser to check version number + name.
