More HTC Sense 5.0 screens leak, maybe the M7 as well

More HTC Sense 5.0 screens leak, maybe the M7 as well
Yesterday, we saw a couple screen leaks that were reported to be the dialer and keyboard from HTC's new 5.0 update to the Sense UI, and today we're not only getting a couple more screenshots from the new Sense UI, but we may have also gotten the first leaked shot of HTC's next flagship device, the M7.

As we have heard, the push for Sense 5.0 has been to make the UI more "simple and clean" and we're finally seeing a bit of that with these new screens. The first leaked pic is the lockscreen, and the weather widget definitely shows off a new "simple and clean" design. The app icons on the lockscreen are a bit simplified, but not to the same extent. Similarly, the icons on the settings page are a bit hit or miss. Some look to have been simplified, but others haven't. 

The last shot is what is said to be the M7, but it's not the best view of the device. The only thing that we can say is that the bezel doesn't look markedly thinner than other devices we've seen.

the multitasking works just as it should just because it orientated differently doesnt mean broken... these are what we classify as leaks?

Are you kidding? The multitasking is aweful. I'll be playing a game on my Evo LTE, switch to messaging to respond to a text, and when I switch back to the game the entire thing has to restart. This type of thing never happened with my original Evo 4G.

you can change the background app limit from developers options in settings. try changing it to the max and then see if the problem still exists or not.

thats why i like the iphone... its not a multitasking phone so i like that it pauses everything in the background

There's a big difference between pausing something and completely restarting something. If I'm in the middle of a particularly good run in Jetpack Joyride, on a multitasking phone I could hit the pause button, perform other tasks on my phone, and come back 15 minutes later and continue. With Sense's multitasking, this is impossible.

The bezel looks big. Also pretty bummed about no on-screen keys. Sucks.

Yeah... the bezel does look pretty big on that 3rd picture. Looks kind of weird... I think there's something else they're putting around the device? Hopefully that's the case.

For those who don't put there phones in a case will benefit from a large Bezel. The problem today with many of broken screens when the phone is dropped is there is no cushion between the frame anmd screen hence no Bezel to take the shock of the drop so this leave the screen taken the shock. That in turn leaves you with a broken screen and asking how did this happen?

I don't put my phone in a case. I also don't drop my phones. I say put a tiny bezel on there and be careful

nice looking ui but i don't like this white background with these types of icons ... probably black is perfect for this . cool icons at homescreens and the earth Live wallpaper is same as in 2012 Xperias . :D

dont beat it in fluidity and features(i admit some are gimmicks)...i like sense icons and widgets but there transitions are never consistent and sense has lag every now and then

In fluidity you are right. Sense can hiccup on you sometimes,but ive heard sometimes touchwiz can too. I also agree with you that some of the features are gimmicks, but Samsung has done good overall. The only problem I have is how it just looks kidish. Sense feels more grown up and has a more simple and professional look to it. That's just my opinion.

Sense definitely more professional looking... Dont like the cartoon like icons and launcher of tw personally which is why I use nova with jb theme... Makes the s3 almost stock feeling.... Won't lie tw does hiccup too bit not too often and it's usually when using its own launcher... Since using nova I've had no issue with lag at all.. Hopefully tw goes with more professional looking design in the future but I doubt it as I would guess maybe the cartoony design bodes well with the the general consumer.
