[Update]: Seems there is some confusion in the comments section, so let’s clear up a few things. Firstly, while the title of the article does say you can disable the Sense UI, it is true that this is inaccurate: you can use Android’s stock launcher in place of HTC Sense’s. My wording may have been confusing in the context of the article, but I didn’t mean to insinuate that you could replace SenseUI altogether. Secondly, while I understand you can use a home replacement to do this on phones like the Droid Incredible, I was referring to the ability to revert to Android’s stock launcher – something the Droid Incredible does not have. I hope this little blurb will do its job in explaining what I meant by posting this article.
While HTC’s Sense UI is one of the deepest and prettiest Android customizations out there, some people simply don’t like it. There’s always the option of avoiding a phone with Sense altogether, but being given the choice of launchers you want to use is much more appreciated.
Andrew Kameka from Androinica.com confirmed that – at least in the build he played with at Sprint’s and Disney’s event in New York, last week – the Sense UI can be turned off on the HTC EVO 4G. It’s as simple as choosing which launcher (or home, if you’re used to calling it that) you want to use whenever you press the phone’s Home button.
I’m not sure if this will revert you back to Android’s stock “core” apps, as well (such as dialer, browser, etc) but at the very least, you can experience the same Home screen experience that many users on the Nexus One and other vanilla 2.1 phones are.Are you going to stick with HTC’s layer of frosting or do you prefer Android 2.1’s default launcher?
