The beta ICS ROMs for the 3D are amazing, and thats without camera/4G/3D and a bunch of other things, and people are still using it as a daily driver. Can't wait for an official version

"You’d also get lock screen notifications like on iOS 5, and the lock screen will allow you to pull down the notification shade without unlocking."...that made me laugh..iphonearena..

Yea leave it to all of these phone article websites to compare every single thing to the iPhone. It's just how it is every where.

Notification tray started out on Android and here we have iPhoneArena saying just like on iOS 5, whereas that feature debuted on iOS 5. These guys should get an award for blatant fanboyism

Even when sense was the first one to show message and stuff on the lockscreen they will compare it with the iPhone.

In ice cream sandwich, you can pull down the notification shade without unlocking the phone. So sense 4.0 is bringing anything new to the table with that.

I have the thunderbolt and I must say, if I were closer to my upgrade point, I would probably root and rid myself of sense. I use launcher 7 for my skin even though it doesnt run throughout everything, its still better than sense. Not my style.

Sense may eat up ram but it's still very smooth unless your phone is clogged up with processes. I can't wait to be upgraded to ICS.

ICS beta ROMs for the 3D are magnificent. And I used Windows Launcher 7 before ICS came out, and its the best launcher on the market bar none.

i hope HTC actually does go for a more neutral look. if they do that and use the hell out of those S4s then HTC may come back to being a top dog to me.

Wait... 50 GB for sense 4.0 users? Or a permanent 5GB?

Because I just got a Sense 3.5 device and the offer is for 5 GB free, but only for 1 year.
