Yes, another Android phone . . .

OK, perhaps I've gotten a little carried away, but it was all for the truest of motives, with the best of intentions, and with generally positive results.  9 phones in one year.  Is that a record?

And, I'm back to an HTC Android phone, the Sensation, which is pretty close to where I started, with the EVO.

Herewith, some ramblings:

 

1.  HTC Sense

People love to hate the Sense layer that HTC puts on top of Android.  I can't say I agree with them.  Here's what I do not need to download, now that I have Sense 3.0:

Enhanced email and Contact Editor.  The HTC email client is hands down the best one out there.

Advanced Alarm Clock and Stopwatch & Timer.  The HTC clock/alarm/timer/stopwatch is advanced enough!

Advanced Call Log.  The HTC call log is very good.

Flashlight Zaphrox. The HTC flashlight . . . well, you get the idea.

 

Now, I do still need Calengoo and Calendar Snooze, since apparently the HTC folks put as little thought into the calendar as the Google folks do.  Maybe they don't use a calendar?

More as I have time.  For now:  Sense is the best layer out there, and improves on the stock Android experience.
