Some people don't want to spend hours customizing their phone, they just want to load their contacts, put up a new wallpaper of their kids or their dog, and go. They don't care about 200+ clock skins, weather options, chat programs, etc. They want the phone to just work.

Yeah, those people could just buy an iPhone, but a) we want people to experience the joy of Android, and b) if you're on Sprint or T-mo (in the US, at least) that's not an option. So, reviewers have to talk about the stock UI... and it's in everyone's interest that manufacturers put on functional and attractive ones so non-modders are happy and help Android thrive.

There you go.
Never forget before buying a phone Motorola breaks their promise of updates.
