Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
Sense UI 2.5 Coming to VZW Soon
The newest version of Sense UI has been available for the HD2 since released, but now the Touch Pro2 might be receiving its own version. The Touch Pro2 has been living in envy since the original 2.5 release. The ROM section of the Touch Pro2 forum is overflowing with ROMs that use 2.5, but the version Verizon is developing loses some features, but also gains some.
The Touch Pro2’s version of Sense 2.5 will lose the programs, E-reader, documents and footprints tabs. But with that loss comes the gain, the new version will most likely be completely landscape capable, so your device will not have to stay in portrait mode. The new version might also be lightning fast, because we’re sure hoping Verizon would not release something that is as slow as the current HD2 versions that the Touch Pro2 users have been using.

A new 6.5 (sorry to say not 6.5.3) VZW ROM – the big surprise was Sense 2.5
Before you ask… NO – I cannot send you the ROM – I like my job way too much to jeapordize it – please don’t bother asking.
Screenshots below show the phone exactly after the ROM flash.
The only thing installed was SOTI Pocket Controller for screen caps.
The only other thing done to this phone was connect it to my WiFi, as this is a test device, and is not active.
Screenshots have been reduced in size by 50%
One thing I did note – most of the green highlights have been replaced by gray.
There are no PROGRAMS, E-READER, DOCUMENTS, or FOOTPRINTS tabs
