I would try a launcher if you don't like the look of the LG UI but don't pick one that is a resource hog as it will slow down the device.
Guess that probably won't happen as ice cream sandwich is supposed to be the one that everyone's going to switch to. I did install launcher pro and many other customization things and my UI is fresh now.
