Never mind.. don't want to derail this, one of the best threads around, imo.
I don't think it's derailing because it's in context.
I'm not a gamer. But I am an information junkie. No one browser is ok for me, I never know when I'll hit a page that looks bad on one browser but ok in another. I always have at least 6 browsers, then Choose Browser to manage them. Same idea on my news readers. Video players. Music players. PDF readers. Office apps. And I hated my built-in calendar, so there's another. Altogether I have 6 keyboards.
Some people get their customizations by changing the home screens around (oops, yeah, custom launcher, Nova there). I keep mine simple. My Android customization comes from my app flexibility for what I want - mass consumption of information at any time and being able to interact with it as I need or just how whimsy takes me.
In each app category, could I choose and live with a best and reduce my clutter? You bet.
But I don't have to be limited that way, and that's how I exercise my Android choice.
I may be the odd duck in my app mix, but I think I'm mainstream in that it's all about the apps - otherwise, I'd find a way to get my StarTac some service.
