Chameleon Wants to Redefine the Home Screen. Samsung and HTC, Look and Learn

by: Bogdan PetrovanMarch 10, 2012

For most manufacturers, the home screen is the most important part of the Android interface. Why? Because, on the home screen, they can easily apply their own branding and style, and, in theory, differentiate their devices from the sea of competing Android products. The need for differentiation is understandable, but unfortunately, for end users, overlays like TouchWiz, Sense, or Motoblur are just sources of slow updates, bloatware, and poor performance.

However, it’s not like the home screen of vanilla Android is a major step forward when compared to the manufacturers’ overlays. All you get in the stock version are apps and notifications, plus the clock widget. For [...]

Install HTC Sense 2.1 on Samsung Galaxy S

by: Carl ParkerMarch 7, 2012

Love it or hate it, looks like HTC Sense is hell-bent on getting on the Samsung Galaxy S. This newest attempt to port HTC Sense to the Samsung Galaxy S has been made by QuBe2, member of XDA Developers. It’s based on Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread and comes with HTC Sense 2.1. It may be a little old, especially with HTC Sense 4.0 being floated around, but as long as it gets a fully working Sense port, beggars can’t be choosers.

At the time of this writing, the port is still under development and cannot be relied on yet for daily use. Some of its known issues are Bluetooth, both front and back cameras, fastboot, and the camcorder. When pattern lock is enabled, it [...]

Upgrade HTC Sensation to ICS with HTC Sense 3.6

by: Alvin YbañezFebruary 13, 2012

If Ice Cream Sandwich alone is irresistibly alluring, how much more if it includes the colorful skin of HTC Sense 3.6.  Owners of the HTC Sensation can now enjoy both Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and HTC Sense 3.6 through the custom ROM called Extreme Sensation, developed by a member of XDA Developers named thelegendarylegends.

The ROM is based on the leaked RUU version 3.24.401.1 for the HTC Sensation and is reportedly stable enough to be used daily.  The developer fully re-edited the said leaked RUU, fully integrated HTC Sense 3.6 into it, and threw in a few extra features such as overscroll glow effect, semitransparent app drawer, battery percentage mod, and a few [...]

HTC Wildfire review and videos

by: Michael OrylJuly 15, 2010

HTC Wildfire

Russell Jefferies wrote a review of the new HTC Wildfire for our sister site,  The Wildfire is very much like the high-end HTC Desire, except for a downgraded screen, CPU, and price. Here’s an excerpt from the full HTC Wildfire review:

The HTC Wildfire is one of HTC’s latest Android smartphones that is aimed at the social networker who wants an affordable handset. Containing most of the HTC Desire’s high end components, the Wildfire packs an impressive feature set, yet costs around a third less than it’s bigger brother.

HTC has also enhanced the Facebook connectivity of the handset to [...]

HTC Aria with Sense UI launched on AT&T

by: Michael OrylJune 14, 2010

HTC Aria for AT&T

In a bit of an unusual move, AT&T outed the new HTC Aria in its own YouTube video before an actual press release was sent out.  The Aria is the first HTC Sense-equipped Android smartphone on AT&T.

Video: HTC’s Sense UI ported to Motorola’s Droid

by: James TromansMarch 1, 2010

SenseUI on Droid

This is for anyone who loves the manliness of their Motorola Droid, but has a sensitive side to them which just cries out for HTC’s Sense UI, now you can have your cake and eat it. Well, perhaps not quite right now, but if the work rate of those at AllDroid remains at this level, then we would expect that you can give it a go pretty soon. After the jump you can take a look at a video they have released outlining the general port of HTC’s Sense UI over to the Motorola Droid. It is quite a sight to behold.

Aside from the fact that things seem to be running a little slow on the device at the moment, we are rather [...]

Sense 2.1 demoed on the HTC hero with multitouch in full swing

by: Susan ElleryFebruary 12, 2010

The guys over at Pocketnow discovered a YouTube video that offers a preview of HTC Sense 2.1 running on the HTC Hero. Most of the video is fairly mundane but one notable feature is the support for multitouch. A pinch gesture was used in the video to show off a new homescreen preview which allows you to view all your homescreens as thumbnails and switch to any widgetized homescreen with a single tap. The full video, complete with a modern musical score, is after the break.
