My brother is looking to upgrade his EVO LTE and as much as I've refrained from recommending Samsung I just can't get over the M8's apparent waste of screen space.
My concern as well. We have immersive mode, but it takes a little tinkering to make the ascetics of the screen seem nice while staring at it.
From what I've read most of the reasoning behind this change is so SENSE can become a lighter UI as it relates to future ANDROID updates. It should help future update processes become a smoother transition. Changes like soft keys potentially help them market the point that HTC will update future flagships fir 2 years.
Crossing my fingers for them to get creative with the HTC LOGO at the bottom of the screen.
We can all pick apart what any said manufacturer or designer does or does not do, but my take on HTC is they have made a company wide change in philosophy, implemented herr in the US and in UK to have a grassroots touch with their customer.
They want our input and to me it shows.
