HTC Sense 3.0: A Smarter Lock Screen
While the iPhone 4S and Samsung Galaxy Nexus let you launch the camera from the lock screen, HTC lets you do a lot more with Android phones running its Sense 3.0 software. You can pull one of four shortcuts into a ring to launch the app directly from the lock screen: Camera, Mail, Messages, and Phone. This is a huge timesaver, and you can swap these choices out for other shortcuts from within the settings menu.
