HTC today launched their brand new device, the HTC Sensation in London and with it the new version of the Sense UI. It could only make more sense that the latest version of the Sense UI would launch with a device named Sensation. The HTC Sensation features a 4.3-inch qHD resoultion display with a resolution of 540×960 pixels, an 8MP snapper on the back capable of recording 1080p videos, a 1.2 GHz dual-core CPU and 768 MB of RAM. The Sense UI 3.0 running on Android has some cool features attached to it. Sense has always been one of the best UIs out there, and the most liked too, so whats new with Sense 3.0?
The homescreen UI is just awe inspiring, with 3D animation, it looks exceptionally good and also the good old weather widget now can be seen on the whole screen with some peppy animation. To go further, HTC Sense 3.0 now has some cool new features under the hood like HTC Trace which is HTCs own take on the Swype Text Input, a cool video editor, increased social networking integration etc. The camera app has been considerably improved too with the time between each shots taking lesser time than before. Also the phone can now ‘sense’ if it’s in a closed environment with the help of sensors attached to the device. For example, if the phone is in your purse or pocket, the phone senses it and rings louder, and decreases as you take it out.
These new features are actually a handful. As Sense UI grows, we tend to fall more and more in love with it. From first impressions, we’re very impressed. Hopefully, HTC has a lot more in store for us than what we see here.
