PocketNow have gotten their hands on an early build of Android 4.0 – one they say we should expect to see on the phones HTC will announce this February – and were kind enough to post their first impressions. They note that Sense will feel a lot better than it has in recent years with the different design and style changes HTC’s made.
Many things such as the lockscreen, browser and homescreen have all been improved, as well as minor look and feel tweaks here and there. For instance, the biggest change users have been asking for from HTC – and any manufacturer, really – is native support for landscape mode on the homescreen.
HTC has also apparently changed the way app controls behave when the phone goes into portrait mode. Instead of keeping icons and buttons at the bottom of the display they will move to the side to create more vertical screen real estate.
There are a ton of other changes, apparently, so be sure to read PocketNow’s rundown of it all here. No screenshots can be had but we won’t have to wait long to see it in action hopefully.
