Sigh. The E6 is everything I thought it would be. Or at least, those are my first impressions of the device. I had the chance to play with a black unit for a few minutes this weekend. The black slab felt solid and re-assuring in the hand. The display is gorgeous. But what really blew me went beyond the hardware. The custom Amigo UI layer is sweet! Sweet! Candy sweet. Best Android UI I have ever seen – and I have seen plenty.
Navigating through the user interface evoked some really nice feelings. Long-time readers here know how much I am not a fan of the Android UI, but this has got me drooling. I love it when vanilla Android is completely hidden. Remember how I loved the HTC One? Oh, yes. The E6’s Amigo UI is what the doctor ordered. It is sweet and feels very light. I still need to muse over how I feel to find the right words to describe it.
I am going to see if I can borrow or steal an E6 for a full review. May the force be with me.
