Fix Developed for Jaggy Sensation Navbar
It’s hard to deny that the HTC Sensation is a good looking device: HTC’s instantly recognisable taste in hardware styling combined with a revamped Sense interface running on a qHD resolution, 4.3″ screen really make for a treat to the eyes. Yet, in some places the device doesn’t seem as aesthetically polished as you might expect.
XDA member and Sensation owner binarybulge was disappointed to find that the navigation bar running along the bottom of the Sense homescreen just wasn’t up to scratch for the phone’s high-res display, with incongruously jaggy lines and a lack of transparency. To fix this, the developer replaced the stock Sense skins with a customised, fixed and obviously much better looking navigation bar graphic.

However, you can still continue on receiving higher priority notifications. Needless to say, this does have a tradeoff of not having up to date syncs across...
