they really have to get rid of the lag, that is their number one concern.
everything else is a bonus.

You should see what the devs at XDA have done with sense devs like WildChild for example have optimized sense 3.5 to work with no lag on Inspire 4g/Desire HD and Vivid. Oh and still keep it stock without all the carrier bloat,

The screenshots do look nice. I hope Sense 4.0 goes easy on the system overhead. It would be sad to learn that Sense 4.0 requires a quad core processor to be able to run.

Separately, has anyone heard whether screen capture can be done natively on ICS? If memory serves, earlier versions of Android required rooting to be able to do screen captures.

Yes screen capture is native on ICS, I'm using it (ICS) on my Captivate

Rock on! (Thumbup) How do you do it (what button press sequence)?

Looking forward to ICS on my Razr!

Volume down+power key.

Interesting.... Press and hold the volume down+power key combination on the Razr is the equivalent of a battery pull.

Looking forward to ICS on my Razr! (Thumbup)

Not a chance. I'd take Sense over stock ICS any day. Hands down the nicest UI so far. ICS Is smooth, but dull. It'd be my next choice.

I want Htc Sense like this, with no lag, and all the other features it already has. Then people won't be able to complain about a Snapdragon... Then it would run like a Snapdragon on Touchwhiz, but Sense instead. Do you guys get what I'm saying!? Are you listening HTC???

Huh? TouchWIZ on a snapdragon is laggy as hello. Sense on my Thunderbolt (snapdragon) is smoother than TouchWIZ of any Galaxy S I've tried. Even stock. However, sense 3.0 on a custom ROM is totally lag free.

then apparently you haven't touched an AT&T, Sprint or whatever Galaxy S II variant that use Exynos. :P

Actually, I have, and it's laggier than Sense on my Phone.

i complain about the Snapdragon series being what it is, an inferior SoC. Sense won't change much.

I love sense. Nothing feels as polished and premium. This doesn't wow me but I think the old sense experience will still be there. I just hope its more fluid and less power consuming. I miss my sensation. I'll definitely consider HTC again now that they're going back to using amoled displays. Their build quality is unmatched. Then again, its gonna be a while until I get rid of my gnex.

Why can't HTC just leave the poor status bar alone?!?!?!! What did it ever do to them!

I love it. I love sense. Its perfect. Way better then stock. Way better. Just not in terms of updates.

Yeah, this is the one drawback to Sense, and it's huge. But, it's an issue all OEM UI's have to deal with, and among the big players, HTC sure isn't the worst at getting updates out.

htc sense is cool as a whole but my only complain here would be the icons, it looks way back froyo days. how i hope functionality and smooth performance would compensate and of course more eye-candy interface haha! :)

Well, I'm not sure if that was a reverse troll, or not.

Sense has always been a nice, if resource intensive, skin. It looks like HTC may be leaving the dock at the bottom untouched, while adding more lockscreen functionality, both of which are really cool steps.
