Sense Zero Ported To More Devices – Eris, Sapphire, and Hero GSM Owners Rejoice!
It certainly didn’t take long. If you recall yesterday, we published an article about a port of the HTC Pico’s Rom to the Hero CDMA. This port came loaded with a lighter qvga version of the brand new Sense 3.5, which is also referred to as Sense Zero. We said that we were probably going to see ports of this on all other devices that were left for dead when it came to updates. Well, a little over 24 hours later and we found threads started by XDA members Hintay and TeamSuicide who ported the whole thing to the Sapphire, the Eris, and the Hero GSM. They all share similar hardware and it was simply a matter of time before it all came to be.
Each Rom has its own set of bugs but they are really all regular bugs of fresh Sense ports (WiFi issues, usb connectivity, etc), so keep in mind that they are not perfect yet. However, if you would like to help by leaving feedback, it would certainly be appreciated.
This is a port from the Nordic test of the 2.3.5 Sense 3.5 ROM from the HTC Explorer(Pico).
You can find more information in the original threads for the Eris, the HeroGSM, and the Sapphire.

We are almost at the end of Q2 for 2015, and we have seen most of the flagship phones for the year already. While flagship phones usually offer bleeding-edge specs and are the most sought after phones, there is a huge market for non-flagship phones. Some offer value, others offer unique differentiating features. Today, we are going to look at the X1 phone by a Chinese company named N0.1. The company promises a truly rugged IP68 Certified phone.

The majority of us here at XDA would consider ourselves power users and Android enthusiasts. Thus, when a friend or family member has a question about which phone they should get, they usually come to us. However, this is where we all differ. While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
