    Its cool in the tech world to go vanilla. But im okay with not being cool. Its about productivity. I need my calendar app, my bookmarks, my clock widget and so on. Why pay extra from the market when TW gives it to you for free?

    What you on about? My Nexus 4 has all that stock on stock android and the experience is the best of all UI.

    I am contemplating looking at the GS4 when released. Only downfall of the N4 is only 16gb of storage which is stupid! Other than that, this phone is still brilliant!

    Every serious android lover has both and switches back and forth...I do not mind touch wiz because it is handy, but I just wish they did not bloat the phones up so much and then not allow you to uninstall without root. I love my s pen on my Note 2! But I also love to customize, that is why I love my Nexus 4, no bloat and nothing that I do not want. Most carrier phones have 8 to 16 apps of BLOATWARE!

    ROM
    Stock .4.1.1

    Default Re: Would you like stock android on the S4?

    I have owned a ton of Android phones, Droid phones, Galaxy 1, 3 and soon 4, Moto X phones etc, and a Galaxy Nexus and even though pure Android has its benefits (not on Verizon) with immediate updates (unless you are on Verizon) I feel Samsung is doing some cool things with Android OS and putting the features on it that Google isn't. Now at least Samsung has already stated publicly that the GS3 (which came with 4.0, upgraded to 4.1) and the GS4 (coming with 4.2.2) will both be getting KLP 5.0 and that is something no other Android OEM has stated yet. I am glad we will have the latest OS at launch and sure KLP will be announced but isn't the norm for Google to launch a new Nexus phone in the fall with the new OS so we will see something by Spring next year which is fine by me.

    It's really a matter of personal preference. I'm not opposed to custom ui's but I prefer stock Android. Why? Because then I can skin my phone myself. Most of the custom features the oems give you can be added by installing apps from the play store. Also alot of the oems ui's get in the way of that ie sense for instance runs slower if you don't use all sense apps, and sense won't easily let you run another launcher for instance. Yeah you can still use one but it'll clear defaults constantly and the "rosie" launcher will continue to run in the background, using cpu, ram, and battery.

    It just depends what you want. Do you want a feature packed phone that's ready go with a ton of features out of the box that requires minimum set up? If so, then you want a phone with a custom ui. Or do you want to tweak everything to your liking and choose what apps you use? If so get a nexus.

    As for the gs4, I can guarantee cyanogenmod will come to it for those who like to tinker

    Default Re: Would you like stock android on the S4?

    I don't mind touchwiz as a UI, but I wouldn't mind keeping all of the fancy features Samsung puts in but with the AOSP UI. I would like to see more custom ROMs and really want the Omega ROM on my GS4 if they support the AT&T version (they couldn't do it for the Verizon GN2). So I like the work that the ROM community builds upon and honestly even if it comes with a stock UI I would likely put something on it anyways, I get bored easily and like to try new things.

    Nope. I've rooted my s3 to have pure stock cm 10.1; I feel like that's the better option. I'm just assuming but I think people who would want it stock would just root and be happy. Samsung would lose to many potential sales to scrap all their touchwiz features.

    Edit: there are a few good launchers that bring the look/feel of pure Google while retaining the touchwiz things.
