Sense 3.5 for HTC Desire HD, Desire S and Evo 4G

Android 2.3.4 was released a while ago, but not for all Android phones. It was first released for the Samsung Nexus S , the Nexus One and then was distributed to a few others. However, because of the complete code being open source, developers started developing Custom ROMs for devices that were not given this update. Android 2.3.4 brings some new features such as Google Talk Video Chat. That’s one of the main reasons why people want to try this build and also for other bug fixes.

Since then, Android 2.3.5 has also been released and like it’s previous update, it wasn’t rolled out to all the phones. The only way to try out these latest builds were to root your Android phone and then install a custom ROM such as CyanogenMod.

Android 2.3.4 also came with Sense 3.5 on the HTC Bliss, which was released recently. It’s beautiful, we all have to admit, and has paved a path to all the latest home screen widgets and customization’s. It was leaked last month along with the Bliss and it showed some new improvements in the UI, such as  two dedicated buttons to the Menu and Dialer just below the enlarged weather app. Sense 3.5 was also made to run on mid range HTC phones, as opposed to normally being made  for high-end smartphones. Check out the screenshots after the break.

No worries you HTC owners, specially if you happen to have the Desire HD/S or Evo 4G. All three of these HTC phones have been introduced to Sense 3.5 by some special geeks over at XDA developers. Like always. If you’re not afraid of flashing your phone, then you should certainly give it a try.

You can visit the thread over at XDA developers and try this new version of Sense out. It should soon be available for other HTC phones as well. We’ll keep you updated.

Do you prefer the Sense UI or the Windows Phone 7 Metro UI?
