It is a well known fact that all the Android skins from Android handset manufacturers are just slow, look kiddish and downright ugly. The only exception to this would be HTC’ Sense UI. The Taiwanese company’s Sense UI has been popular right from its WinMo days, when it was known as the TouchFLO 3D. Sense UI is the only Android skin from a manufacturer, which makes the whole OS look pleasing and much more user-friendly.
Recently, with the HTC Sensation and the EVO 3D, the company unveiled the latest version of Sense UI (v3), which includes nifty lock screen widgets and shortcuts, along with an updated 3D launcher and animations. Now, it looks like HTC is again all set to give its Sense UI an update, with the launch of its upcoming Android handsets (Vigor and Bliss, in all probability).
The folks over at XDA.cn have got their hands on a 5min+ video, which showcases the upcoming version of the Sense UI on an unreleased HTC handset.The new version of Sense will not bring any major UI overhaul, but will bring some new animations and will also enlarge some UI elements. The lock screen has also been tweaked with new animations and features.

Hopefully, this new version of Sense will also be faster and smoother compared to the current version of Sense UI. A 1.2GHz dual-core processor powers the HTC Sensation, but still feels sluggish sometimes thanks to the Sense UI. I am also pretty sure that most HTC Android handset users will also like an option to turn off the Sense UI.
