HTC's Sense, Samsung's TouchWiz, whatever Sony Ericsson calls their various UIs, they all look and feel a bit differently. If you don't like the one that comes with your phone, you can try something like ADW.launcher, HelixLauncher, etc., and use alternative SMS apps and/or contact lists, email programs, and so on. Android is whatever you make of it.
Sony Ericsson UI is called UX for User eXperience.

I played around with all 3, and HTC Sense is in a class of its own. And Sony Ericsson UX is ok, it lacked many features that the other two supports and Android 1.6 is old. Samsung TouchWiz I did not like at all, I would rather have vanilla.
