Ok, its not that bad but in all honesty, I found it to be pretty bland and boring (almost ugly). It also lacks many nice features found on other phones with manufactuer overlays, (This is probably the biggest reason why they put those overlays on top of stock android). Obviously the best thing about it of course is the quicker updates (in most cases). But other than that, my experience with stock was not too fun compared to using now Launcher Pro overtop of just plain stock and even now over TW (I know, i know, people hate TW). Just had to put this out there. (At work TBC) ...Continued: Things That need to be fluffed up/updated or changed in order for me to want it are: - Smoother UI (Scrolling through the home screens is not as smooth as I've seen on Launcher Pro, ADW, Sense, and even TouchWiz 3) - The Video player with the three gray control buttons at the bottom is just too plain for me compared to the other video players I've seen on Android phones - The Music player is pretty much the same deal as above - The gray theming that is on vanilla android phones is super bland and the yellow accent colors for loading bars, highlights, etc. - The white notification bar is not to my liking and I also don't like the look of it once its pulled down either. - The app icons are kind of bland/ugly as well (although it improved going from cupcake to Ecclair) - The dock bar below needs to be more customizable (like ADW and Launcher Pro) - It needs a Leap or leap like feature where you can pinch the home screen to see them all in a helicopter view. (Its in TouchWiz 3.0 Froyo, Launcher Pro and ADW Launcher as well) These are just some of the changes I would like.
