    It really depends on what kind of experience you prefer. I much prefer vanilla Android, and the ability to customize things the way I want to (instead of having to use a manufacturer skin), so I'd go for the GPE.

    i don't think there any software "advantages" over GPE, there's just more software, that you may or may not want, with GPE you can get any battery saving app or mod/kernel you want. and yes you can side load.

    ive tried side loading the walkman app on another phone but it said package file is invalid, what am i doing wrong. when you side load a app is it always supposed to work, regardless of your os version or no matter if it says that app is exclusive to a certain phone type

    if you're able to sideload the same apk on one phone but not the other then maybe carrier or manufacturer is restricting it, might have to install a custom rom. developers can also specify which versions of android are required for their apps to work.

    You'll need to root your phone to use Walkman™ player

    No you don't I got it from XDA and side-loaded it on my Ultra just fine, works a charm.
