    How OEMs skins and software benefit stock Android

    Love them or loathe them, various OEM skins have enhanced and even innovated enough on stock Android to even become incorporated as key features in future versions. Despite the odd disaster, on the whole custom OEM skins and software have been a good thing for the broader ecosystem.

    Yes, the manufacturers have played an important part in general Android development.

    Theming is a big reason why I chose LG over Stock Android.

    I would say it's partially OEMs, and partially Custom ROM developers.

    I still prefer pure Android on an unlocked phone with no bloatware ;-)

    What is Pure Android? Is it what Google puts out or what's in AOSP?

    Some may argue that pure Android is nothing more than a Command Line Interface.

    Yep.

    That is the beauty of Android, EVERYONE involved has had a say, be it OEMs with their hardware and skins, ROM developers as well as us users who decide with our wallets plus apps and mods we installed.

    This has been a community built platform and look how far it has come since it was introduced.
