HTC's attractive Sense UI is in full effect here, with seven customizable home screens, superior contract integration across multiple services like Facebook and Twitter, and HTC's usual array of Android app replacements for common tasks. You can also select from hundreds of thousands of third-party apps in the Android Market.

Inside is a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 APQ8060 dual-core processor. It performed in the middle of the pack for dual-core phones, though its Nenamark 2 frame rate score (at 30 fps) was barely half that of the Skyrocket's; this isn't as good a gaming phone. I also noticed some sluggishness here and there around the OS, in addition to the dialing problems noted above; my impression is that HTC's Sense UI is beginning to show its age, since a 1.2GHz dual-core processor is a pretty fast chip.
