HTC Sense 3.5 Video Leaks

It appears that the same folks who brought you the HTC Sense 3.5 screencaps from a few days ago have now got a video out showing off the newest version of the system in full action. This is a full five minute tour of what they're saying is HTC Sense 3.5 UI, looking not just a whole heck of a lot different from Sense 3.0, the version seen on the newest HTC devices, specifically the HTC Sensation, a rather lovely device if I may say so myself. Transitions have been smoothed out, details have been sharpened, and the whole thing looks just a tiny bit neater - shine and gleam all around.

The largest change you're going to find here is the complete disappearance of the long standing three-button Sense launcher bar normally sitting at the bottom of your display. Instead you'll have a completely separate app drawer and phone keys. There's a brand new ability to add and remove homescreens now, and Widgets have been tweaked as well. Smells nice, doesn't it?

What we're seeing here is an upgrade to what yours truly considers one of the better out of the box user interfaces delivered by a manufacturer since Android began. Sense 3.0 has treated this team quite well, this upgrade to 3.5 is set to be the buffed-up and much more magical version of a winner. Expect to see this user interface on the HTC Holiday (aka HTC Raider), the HTC Vigor, the HTC Bliss, and maybe even the HTC EVO Design 4G. Be there!

  • looks like udder crap. The last thing I want my phone to do is have a bunch of meaningless animations that rape my battery and slow my phone down. Just give me vanilla

      True, HTC needs to give us a Vanilla offering with a dual-core processor already. The Sensation (stock) suffers from the above mentioned rape.

        Meh, my Inspire 4G’s running a ripped Pyramid ROM, full Sense 3 and 2.3.4 (hooray for VirtuousROM), and it doesn’t seem any slower than Froyo/Sense 2.1 did. And my Inspire’s lesser hardware than the Sensation. But I agree some of these animations look overkill. Not to mention someone with long nails wasn’t the best choice to demo the UI 🙂
