The Mountain View company recently undertook a complete redesign of its platform. A bit risky, you say? Probably quite a few analysts have quoted the “if it ain't broke, don't fix it” saying, but you know what? In our opinion, Ice Cream Sandwich is probably the best thing that has ever happened to Android...

I hope HTC's Sense UI gets on well with ICS--- because the reason why I stuck with Android specifically is because of HTC's Sense UI. Going over to any other phone/manufacturer for me is just... unthinkable. No matter how many times I experience the Galaxy S II or review other UIs, it's HTC Sense that does it for me. So... For HTC Sense... I hope the functionality doesn't disappear, but the visuals get an optional refresher. (I mean optional because I freaking LOVE it for how it is).

I will have to admit though... I am not that happy with the elimination of the context menu. I always look within the context menu instead of the app first when I want to do something and even though I can do the same thing with both of those options, I like the freedom... So this futuristic-looking OS.. I don't know if it will work for me... The only thing within this article I'm liking is what they did with the People app and the keyboard. The others... *sigh* There's a reason why I chose the well-done Sense UI instead of a Galaxy two years ago and there's a reason why I have two HTC phones in the house (and about to add another). I love those four Android capacitive keys... Not liking the vanilla Android experience.
