Sense 3.5, the successor to Sense 3.0, is currently the hottest phenomenon among androiders. The development community is keeping up with expectations and this all new Sense 3.5 UI has been ported on majority of HTC Devices. HTC’s Sense 3.5 was “leaked” after some industrious hackers were able to post-mortem the ROM dump allegedly coming from HTC Bliss. HTC Bliss might be the first official handset carrying the awesomeness of HTC Sense 3.5 aboard and is scheduled to be released in 4th quarter this year. Sense 3.5 takes a lot from it’s 3.0 predecessor and comes integrated with Lock Ring feature. Apart from this, the UI will also allow users to display a range of homescreen notifications backed by one-tap re-sizeable widgets. Sense 3.5 also supports landscape orientation for homescreen and app drawer.
Senior XDA developer and creator of countless ROMs for different handsets, Evokings, has managed to port HTC Sense 3.5 UI on HTC Evo 4G. The port comes in shape of a ROM and you’ll need to have root in order to install it. Like always, this ROM is based in system dump of HTC Bliss and errors, bugs and issues are expected. The current ROM version is Beta V.1 and we believe that soon it will be upgraded to RC or stable build.
Here are some Sense 3.5 screenshots for your viewing pleasure:
Video Review of the ROM:
