HTC Sense 3.0 UI demo on the HTC Sensation

HTC Sense 3.0 UI demo on the HTC Sensation
In addition to a dual-core chipset, the brand spanking new HTC Sensation - announced a few hours ago at a special event in London - has some other tricks up its sleeve, namely - the improved Sense 3.0 user interface on top of Android. You know we have not been very big fans of manufacturer UIs found on top of stock OS UIs recently, and we've bashed many attempts in this field. However, Sense has always been among our favorites, as it has that all-encompassing reach and smooth visuals, which allow it to... you know, make sense. That's why we were very excited to get a chance to play with this golden boy of manufacturer-brewed UIs, but we didn't want to keep all the fun for ourselves, so we shot that neat little video below for all of you Sense-o-maniacs to enjoy. Check it out to find what's going on with Sense and its new features!

Of course, don't forget to check out hands-on with the HTC Sensation live from the event!

iOS is so much better and much more functional, user configure able and looks more updated than this

The phone looks nice but like mike said it doesnt make me want to buy it. Htc is only focusing on looks. My mom has an htc android device and when she is going to use navigation it doesn't give you the exact spot ur In. In fact it gives her the spot she was in a couple hours ago.

Again, that doesn't have anything to do with Sense, some people just wanna bash

Htc is only focusing on looks with 1.2Ghz dual core processor and 786mb ram? as compared to your 800Mhz, 512mb ishit? THis is the most awesome interface.

iOS is better for different people. its like getting a pc-in-a-box from best buy vs ordering all your parts custom online and building it yourself. honestly, my net phone will be dual core. i'll wait, but i was really looking forward to this phone. too bad it seems to be T-Mobi... Verizon needs to release this beauty :) make it happen!!

Love the animations! It makes it more appealing... HTC Sense in 'the best' user interface out there!

@ 3MTA3. I would have replied directly to your post, but my iPad wont allow me to reply to unregistered posters. So much for more functionality on iOS, huh? Lol. Anyway, I know you are a true iOS fan be come on! The iPhone is cool but not as cool as this. One way to tell for sure which phone has more functionality is to take away the App Store and the Android market, and without any apps on either device, which phone does more?

Well, considering iOS comes with Notes, a scientific calculator, Contacts smart search, the ability to do screen shots without being rooted, etc.. I would say iOS has more functionality 'out of the box', than stock Android.

Good points! But I still think Android has the edge if you consider it comes with Google Search, Google Navigation, DLNA, Notification ringtones, and the ability to download apps from third party. I would say 'out of the box' Android is still the champ.

My droid incredible has notes and scientific calculator stock you just have to turn your phone to landscape mode. and I can search through contacts. All iOs has is screenshots which i wish i had. But at least I have voice search and can text without typing

I have an idea. How about they work on battery life before they put something else on a phone that is gonna suck it dry in 4 hours. I love HTC but this is getting rediculious!!

looks nice, but the menu navigation seems to stutter a bit, not cool for a dual core phone

The initial screen swipe feature is awesome. Like the fact that you can go right into the app of choice.. have not seen this before.. Can do without the carousel effect.. speed up processes please.. and don't kill the battery.. although its cool to see my phone bring the rain.. unless it can literally take it away don't bother..
