Phone I'm using is HTC One X, stock HTC Android 4.1.

The lockscreen is the Facebook feed, showing one status with the background image being the cover picture and you can swipe left or right to look at other status.

To unlock you have to tap the lockscreen, or hit one of the three android buttons on button to take you to the lock htc screen, after tapping the lockscreen you have three options to take a circle, a picture your face, to messaged, apps or recent. Then if you have a password this when you can unlock.

The lockscreen and the home screen are the exact same except you don't have to unlock the phone to go apps messenger or recent.

You can comment and like statuses without unlocking the phone. I didn't like this because not only can I see pocket comments and likes coming from this but anyone can use your phone to comment.

The app draw has a vertical list of apps and four home screens to the right and it took my normal homescreen apps and squeezes them onto these homescreens, and it also took the apps out of the folders. And it has no widgets. The thing I dislike is how the app draw and these homescreens were inside a small window floating over the homescreen.
