|A Sense UI homescreen|
But enough of that, here is my review of some of the features of HTC's Sense UI 1.0 on my US Cellular HTC Desire.
First-off, the home-screen. Some major differences between stock Android and the Sense UI homescreen are; on the bottom, instead of the dock being orderd: Phone - Launcher - Browser, Sense's is orderd: Launcher - Phone - Add to Homescreen. Also, Sense's is a big curved dock with the Phone button being the largest. I am not a particular fan of this order or set up, though it is pretty and it works well. I would have the App Launcher int he center, with the largest button, and Phone to the left, and a browser shortcut to the right. Yes, like the stock Android dock. I kinda find the Add to Homescreen button pointless, as you get the same result by holding your finger in a blank area on the desktop.

On the homescreen HTC added many nice widgets of there own. Them being, a nice Clock, Mail, Texts, News, Contacts,Bookmarks, Calculator, Calendar, Footprints, Music, Photo album/photo frame, settings widgets, and weather to name some. You can also download a few from HTC, such as a Coin Flip, Notes, or a Tip Calculator.
So there you go. Some features of HTC's Sense UI. There is more features of course, but this was a quick look. I may add some more reviews on specific HTC apps, such as Footprints, or the Flashlight. Anyways, thanks for taking a read of this, and any questions you may have can go into the comments section. Thanks much. Now I leave you with some more screenshots of the Sense UI...
