    Or at least something similar. Simple and intuitive. Apple could make a lot of changes obviously and make it their own. Still, I think it's vastly superior to plain iOS now.

    It looks cool/amazing. It probably will lag though.

    I'll be honest, I'm extremely glad they DIDN'T make it like that.

    Out of the whole video, the only thing that would have been nice in iOS 6 is the settings toggle in notification centre (e.g. 3G, wifi, brightness etc).

    on the 3gs and 4 maybe but I don't know why the 4s and next iPhone would have trouble with it.

    Looks like a great combination of customizability with ease of use and simplistic design.

    Tech support nightmare.


    I'm sorry but if Apple wanted to kill the iPhone they'd do this. This is great for a pretty savvy computer user but having swipes that display content vertically and horizontally as well as all this hidden stuff just isn't going to fly with the public at large.

    K.I.S.S

    Maybe. I feel Apple may over redesigned look and make it an exclusive for the next iPhone.

    I didn't watch the whole thing so I don't know about the rest of the stuff, but I like how the lock screen works.

    At first I was a little confused as to how the phone operates, but after I saw the Apps, Widgets, Shortcuts tabs at the top I got it.

    However all that became unimportant when I saw that Scott Pilgrim was calling! Scott Pilgrim is awesome! Apple should get rid of this John Appleseed guy they keep using in adverts and promotions and call up Scott!

    The only way they could possibly cooler is if when they introduce the new iPhone, they take a demo phone call from Batman!

    Android wins this round!

    It's really not that complicated.

    Edit: Here's a cool article on it from The Verge.

    It's way too busy.

    Tech Enthusiasts will love it but the fat of the market just doesn't want to do gymnastics to control their phone.

    Android really appears to be slowing down and these cluttered UI aren't going to help.

    I hate to admit it, but I think you're right. I thought it looked really nice, but my Mom or Dad would have a heart attack.

    The Android home screen looks pretty much the same, they've just put a different wallpaper and default icons on the first screen. Consistency is good; change for the sake of change isn't.

    Based on that video, that's the most impressive mobile UI I've ever seen. I'd love to have the chance to try it in real world use.

    I liked it for the most part. Apple is going to have to do something eventually. People are going to get tired of looking at the same old thing after a while.

    Why? I live all the time in my apps. Not the home screen.

    I feel the same way. Too much stuff and the home screen is kind of ugly. That being said, it looks slick, and it's definitely an alternative to the iPhone and Windows phone, and it's not a total ripoff like the Samsung Galaxy series, so I applaud Sharp.

    ----------

    Agreed. The home screen deserves the least attention. The lock screen deserves the most attention, and they have a good opportunity to work with the search screen.

    The design has been refined overtime. The design of the icons has improved. The app drawer button has been expanded to include easy access to the phone, web, messages and camera. Custom typeface for the UI, Roboto. No more physical buttons required. I'd say these changes are far greater and significant than the ability to (finally) customize your wallpaper and a glass dock.

    And for those of you saying the homescreen is cluttered, the Ice Cream Sandwich default homescreen is actually less cluttered than the iOS default.


    A few swipes is hardly "doing gymnastics."

    Because people like new stuff and get tired of the same ole same.

    Had a 3G,currently have an iPhone 4,ipad2, 3&4 gen iPod touch and I'm really thinking about getting a SIII just to try something new. I don't have hundreds & hundreds of apps so switching wont be much of a problem for me.

    ETA the phone is a little busy but nothing a person couldn't handle. It's 2012 we shouldn't have to dumb everything down.

    I like that a lot! Especially scrolling between apps and then widgets and contacts.

    Sharp makes sexy stuff and that OS is pretty hot. I'd consider it if it came to the USA.

    Looks great if you want to spend more time playing with your phone than actually using it to do stuff.

    That doesn't describe me, but I guess there's a market for everything.

    Based on most people's PC desktops and 'Start' menus, I can very clearly see the absolute clusterf*** that this UI will quickly lead to with most people. I'm sure the more astute users who post here wouldn't fall into that trap, but I'd hesitate to recommend this phone to anyone but the most advanced users. Hardly a mainstream device.

    The lock screen looked cool. Except I still find it stupid to have stocks and weather on the lock screen... just a waste of battery life.

    I found it really stupid when it said "uncluttered" and theyn they show you an extremely cluttered screen filled with widgets. yuck
