Bought an Samsung i5510 to replace my Galaxy SMART phone (plan to return the latter to T-Mobile) for better battery, keyboard, and GPS.
My Galaxy SMART phone has a beautiful user interface/interaction (UI). "Clean" icon presentation, aesthetically-pleasing color mode, great fonts, good virtual-desktop management, etc.
My i5510, however, isn't nearly as good an experience. Comparitively ugly fonts. Ugly background, apps/widgets not as useful and/or well-present and/or not as nicely placed. Virtual desktop either not as easy/pleasing/efficient. Seems like it's mostly a UI-tweak thing to get it there... or OS (Android/Touchwiz/whatever) reinstall/reconfig to get it there.
How do I get my i5510 "look and feel" to be just like my Galaxy SMART? (I'm not concerned about reinstalling apps/user/config settings... I'm happy to redo anything "specific to me.") Hoping this is a simple OS "reload" of a certain build version.
In any case, how to do this? Help... thoughts... ? Any other context/details (eg, below) needed?
(Need "chapter and verse," detailed directions. While a techie/geek/power-user for many other computing systems, never before have I customized Android/cell-phone stuff...)
Not sure if this matters... but just in case...
My Samsung Galaxy SMART:
- Android version = 2.2.2
- Model number = SGH-T589
- Baseband version = T589UVKF1
- Kernel version = 188.8.131.52-perf uyoung.lee@SEP-19 #1
- Build number = FROYO.UVKF1
My Samsung i5510:
- Android version = 2.2
- Model number = GT-I5510
- Baseband version = I5510BVKC1
- Kernel version = 184.108.40.206-perf root@DELL102 #1
- Build number = FROYO.BVKC2
fwiw, to my knowledge, I don't need 2.3/Gingerbread... my SMART currently suffices for most all things I need (although some additional options/tweaks/optimizations desired... see my other posts if you're interested in those).
