HTC One S smartphone’s improved user interface
HTC recently launched the HTC One S smartphone, featuring the new Sense user interface (version 4.0). Audiences had given mixed feedback on the previous version of the Sense user interface, with some consumers feeling that it was cumbersome and overly complicated. The new version features numerous features and design touches that – its developers hope – will make it easier to use.
At first glance, the interface does not look radically different to previous iterations, but small changes mean that it is much quicker and more convenient to use. Users are now able, for example, to arrange many screens’ icons and widgets according to their own tastes and preferences.
There is also a new multitasking button, which is proving very popular with users. The button has been designed to help users to manage multiple tasks on their smartphone. It does this by allowing you to get a simple overview of every application running on the device, as well as providing easy access to recently-used services.
Overall, version 4.0 of the Sense user interface has enough improvements for it to be considered a real improvement on previous versions.
