Sometimes having an overlay skin of OEM on our Android devices is a real pain. For example, a lot of people have a strong dislike for skin such as Moto Blur, Samsung Touch Wiz and even the LG customized screens. However, one skin that usually people have appreciated would love to have on their devices is the HTC Sense. I remember using the Sense when it was extremely raw back on my HTC Tattoo with Android 1.6. Even back then it was a few steps ahead of anything else available on the market, and today, the Sense 4.0 or 4.5 whichever one you see is probably the best on screen skin for Android. No wonder people really want it on their devices. And if you own a Sony Xperia device then you just may well be about to celebrate.
