In wake of HTC M7 leak, Droid DNA gets a taste of Sense 5


Over the weekend not only did we get a leaked peek at the upcoming HTC M7 flagship, but we also got an early glimpse at Sense 5. Now the new version of HTC’s custom interface has found itself on Verizon’s Droid DNA. The image surfaced at LeakROMS, and likely only represents a port of the M7’s software, not an early build of a future update for the 5-inch handset.

It’s a long shot to think we might see Sense 5 on any phone before the launch of the M7. HTC will take the launch of that phone as an opportunity to show off the new features that will be baked into the latest evolution of the Android skin. But if any older handsets are going to get the new version, the Droid DNA is as good a candidate as any. Just don’t go knocking down HTC’s door just yet.

  1. Goodbye HTC, this is the last nail in the coffin…

    1. Damn dude, you read my mind. Watch it come out “exclusively” on Verizon. HTC is fucked if they don’t release their flagship device on all carriers. If they do crash and burn I hope Google buys them out. Nothing better than creating your own competition.

      1. all have exclusive phones, DeJose.

        1. Ok?

  2. HTC sucks anyways. I don’t understand why anyone is even interested in their phones, or especially HTC sense. But that’s just me.

    1. down down down arrow to this dumb comment

      1. OK, you asked for it :)

    2. I think people enjoyed their build quality, and recently their camera quality, and for sprint users, the kick stand. Sense was also one of the better skins in some peoples opinions, many tech blogs agreed with that point as well.

      1. heh sprint and tfumble users love kickstands.. makes up for a crappy network.

        1. I see your one of those dumbasses getting raped by AT&T or Verizon.

  3. I can’t believe how bad HTC fell off… They were once at the top, and this year doesn’t look promising for them. I still like HTC just wish they would get their stuff together.

  4. Maybe one day they’ll update their status icons from the doughnut ones…

    1. It actually looks like the moved backwards with those

  5. Instead of 5.0 , HTC should just call it Senseless.


    1. Oh teabag, you so crazy!

  6. Looks a lot like a windows phone home screen to me…

    1. yeah because of the Chinese characters? racist.

      1. Wow… Just wow.

        Please don’t breed.

  7. I have seen a few tech blogs that did say Sense was one of the better skins. Those same articles also said skins are bad in general and vanilla android is far better. Well if thats the case, Sense is about as far from vanilla as you can get. So its a contradictory statement.

  8. DNA DNA!

  9. Ugh go away Sense.

  10. If they can have a release like the galaxy s3 launch/galaxy note 2 on all carrier’s then that would help. Also they need to include micro sd card slots! That and removable batteries are what helped set android apart.

  11. The icons look worse than the sense 4. Just saying.
