    Default Re: When will the media and public's love affair with the iPhone end?

    I never feel like replacing stuff I'm sure I hold a different philosophy on how I like my ui's and my level of control as a whole. Personally I like clean and simple ui elements the only two that have this in my eyes are sony and aosp I don't like a bunch of extra stuff that I can't get rid of like 5 billion toggles in my notification shade or notifications for a ton of crap that really doesn't need it in the first place yes most of these are tw complaints. As for apps I prefer to build up my own set of preferred apps. I love the aosp keyboard I'm not a fan of the others. Messaging is easy and to the point no craziness nothing super fancy. Aosp to me is a fluid clean experience. I'm not saying the other skins don't provide more I'm saying I don't think aosp is bare bones its by no means lacking in features and is by far a more responsive experience on my device compared to its tw counterpart.

    Try SwiftKey, you will never be a fan of anything else ever again... It's that good

    I have tried swiftkey, swipe, and a few others I just don't like them as much. Don't ask why its really probably a deep rooted back of my head something I would need to contemplate type thing. Yes it can be like stock or whatever else as its very themeable but I'm just a fan of the stock software package. I never have been keen on googles hardware choices or options though which is why I use Samsung devices they have the hardware I prefer and I can work with source lol. I'm not saying its for everyone and I am not expecting anyone to sway their opinion I just feel the terminology of bare bones is not an apt description.

    As far as wallet goes, Google had their chance and blew it. I personally do not care what standard comes out of it, I just want nfc payment wherever

    Lol. I like the term splitting hairs. That is it. Googles OS is hella fully featured. Nothing bare about it exept the fact all aosp releases seem beta like. While 99% of the OS is flawless, it does seem like severl corners are left to the public to beta test. A beta OS? Yes! Ha ha

    The os is ever changing they are constantly modifying things which comes with the expected drawback of a possible bug missed. I'm sure changes go up for review all the time just like cm's gerrit code review.

    Back to billion dollar OS's, should not Apple open up iOS for everyone to improve like Google? That would be so innovative. That is where most people go, to where the innovation is, besides die hard fanbois. I had my tenure with iOS. In that year Android was innovating leaps and bounds over iOS and continues.

    Innovative products take states of beta and Googles AOSP is responsible for all our android innovations. That is why I heart AOSP. It is the fuel in your phone. Love it or hate it.

    wow this surprises me. I just setup my 14 year old daughter with my SGS2 yesterday and put swiftkey on it for her. She actually commented on how it was so smart and was picking her next word. And this was before I told her how it worked.

    I think that what everyone has beating around the bush with here and that Google themselves consider AOSP and the Nexus line to be the bare bones foundation for OEMs to build upon. Phil and company have said so in the podcasts and reviews many tines. Even Matias Duarte supports this.
