All I have heard is that the fact that the CPU wasn't a S4 is the reason. But that is the only the reason, it does nothing for making me understand why a S3 CPU can't run newest sense
The only thing I can think of is OpenGL compatibility. Sense 4.0 relies heavily on it for 3D transitions and weird animations. I've said it before, but I wish Sense was a modular overlay, coming completely Vanilla and customizable via downloadable features. I'd skip the OpenGL elements. But I love the keyboard, the camera, the widgets, and the overall feel. Not crazy about the animations, vertically-paginated app drawer, the spinning homescreens, and the lack of scrolling wallpaper.
