I agree. Sense is pretty and all, but the main reason I love Android is the ability to have a lot of control over form and function. Sense is no different than any other stock launcher-- big ugly icons, power-draining widgets, and limited customization.
Now, I don't think that Microsoft is a leader in form or
function, but I like the look (not really the functionality) of the Windows Phone 7 interface. It took me a while to get it to work on my Rezound, but this is what I have:
Uploaded with ImageShack.us
Details on the home screen layout are here: Android7 Theme
Launcher is ADW Launcher EX
Tiles are custom-made by me and placed as widgets using Desktop Visualizer
. Weather widget is WeatherBug Elite
, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Ringer, and Brightness toggles are all re-skinned CurveFish
widgets, flashlight is a re-skinned Tiny Flashlight
widget, and the filter is a re-skinned Screen Filter
widget. All tiles and clock are created using ADW Launcher's Overlap Widgets
feature. The Network tile is awaiting an app that shows network info with a transparent background in a 1x1 space (haven't found one yet that works), and the Hotspot tile is awaiting a non-Verizon Wireless Tether option (that doesn't require root or when a permanent root is easily available for the Rezound).
Notifications are SMS Unread Count
and ADW Notifier
Pop-up app folder is Folder Organizer
, dialer is part of AContact
(which also does call log history and contact viewing with group categories), clocks and information widgets are all Make Your Clock
, and keyboard is the unavailable Better Keyboard 8 with the Black Light skin.
The lock screen is, of course, WidgetLocker
with Phantom Music Control
for Google Music
I think I covered everything. It's nothing really new to me since I had this "theme" on my Incredible, but still thought I would share.
Oh, and I definitely picked the Rezound for hardware reasons. The specs are perfect and, although it is a bit "heavier" than it's competitors', HTC maintained a level of quality that matches my original Incredible and outshines the others. Other than minor things like free, no-root hotspot and being able to turn off the V-Cast website when connecting USB, if you loved your Incredible (not the Incredible 2, mind you), you will love the Rezound as well.
