Xperia S UI Ported to Non-Xperia Devices

A few days ago PoorCollegeGuy posted an article explaining a method of taking the UI from Sony’s new Xperia S and using it on an Xperia Play. Now that’s all fine and dandy for Xperia play users, but what about everyone else? For the rest of you looking to try Sony’s sleek UI on non-Xperia device, XDA member ra3al has been hard at work with you in mind.

He has managed to port the entire UI from the Xperia S and optimise it for non-Xperia devices with a variety of different screen resolutions. The package will install the launcher, clock widgets, toggle tools, photo widget, and weather widget. There are even links to the original static and live wallpapers for the full Sony Mobile Xperience (see what I did there?). While this seems to work perfectly on the majority of devices, some people are reporting that they aren’t able to install, so success is unfortunately not guaranteed. That said, this is definitely worth a try if you’re interested in rocking the UI.

This mod is currently only compatible with Android 2.3 based ROMs, but an ICS version is on the way. It’s also worth mentioning that it should only be installed on NON-Xperia devices. So if you feel like your phone could use a bit of a makeover, check out the modification thread.

What’s Next for Samsung and Its Flagships?

If we were to say that the Galaxy S6 was a leap of faith made by Samsung, we wouldn't be too wrong. After all, the device marked a definite change in how Samsung perceived the market and its own place in it, as it stood amongst the signs of decline which started with the critical reception of the Galaxy S5.
