HTC Sense 3.5 Gets a Full 5-Minute Video Preview

A first look of HTC’s new Sense 3.5 that is expected to come loaded on both the Vigor and Bliss, made the rounds last week thanks to XDA.cn.  Today, we have a full 5-minute video walk-through of it thanks to that same brave Bliss tester.

So what’s new in version 3.5?  A lot.  We have a ton of fancy new animations, lock screen tweaks and enhancements, a new dock bar that includes shortcuts to just apps and phone, ability to add and remove home screens, more interactive widgets, and a sweet way to adjust the volume.

While Sense is clearly one of, if not the most polished skins of all, it can be a little overwhelming.  It really transforms Android for the most part, but after looking at HTC’s record profits each year, you can tell that people are interested in something like that.

    The buttons for apps and phone are a skin. It still has the normal look of HTC Sense with the curved rosie bar. One of our devs got his hands on the official 3.5. No worries on the look it can be changed. 

  • All those animations and the lock screen are already in Sense 3, the weather also looks identical. The only difference is the bottom bar, which can already change with a skin, which is probably all this is.

  • Is it me, or has sense become a bit cartoonish?
    No likey

    I liked Sense 3.0 hoping it would come on the Vigor but noooo you have to ruin future HTC phones by putting this weird version of sense and then add bloatware on top of that. BARF.

    HTC sells so well because of the hype it gets, much like a certain iBrand.  After that first rumor about the Vigor popped up with little to no information everyone was already jumping all over it and calling the Bionic outdated trash.

      What makes it really ironic is the fact that the Bionic will be more powerful than the Vigor because HTC decided to actually use last-year’s tech as opposed to moving to an A9-based processor.

        I just laugh.  People are so….ridiculous.  Marketing and hype works, apparently no one cares about facts anymore.
