Having used the Evo, the 3D and LTEvo, I can tell you that extrapolating from what the Evo was like to what they did in 2011 isn't a safe bet.
The OG Evo 4G did not have 1 GB of RAM. It had 512 MB, and 1 GB total storage.
Compare .5/1 to 1/4 or 1/16, and the og S1 processor to the later dual cores and that adds up to a huge difference in what Sense has been for a year and a half vs what's believed.
And it's that innocent but universal mistake that has everyone claiming how heavy weight Sense is.
And it's going to whack the new HTC phones again.
And make no mistake. The more they cater to the "make Sense light" meme, the more they break things.
