    Ok lets keep this civil and clean but I am too cheap to get an Iphone plan so I have been with Sprint for 5 years and recently purchased an EVO. I hate the android system and all the roms (Fresh, warm, Ginbread, Cyan, etc) ALL look the same- chaotic and disorganized. I cant stand the fact you have to manually "turn off" apps. Yes I know about auto killers but really it like tryng to compare a MAC with a PC (Dont even try)... Enter Miui! Yes it still needs an app killer but it is organized (Iphone) smooth and frankly is an Iphone for ANDROIDS. So if you are like me, want an Iphone, hate the all the look alike roms, and cant afford the ATT/Verizon plan-----------USE THE MIUI ROM.

    Ok this is horrible. You "hate the android system" but you purchased an android based phone? You hate all of the roms, but you took the time to learn how to root your android phone that you hate and find all of these roms and flash them, and took the time to sign up on an android internet forum, but then again you hate the android system.

    How can they all look "chaotic and disorganized", when you're the one doing the organizing?!?

    This isn't an Android VS Iphone debate. This is a you vs yourself debate.

    Really, can you be more specific?

    I did try Pays version of MIUI a little while ago but it wasn't for me, I'm more used to HTC Sense and it's handy widgets. That's not to say that I won't give other Android roms a go though.

    If you are really looking for an intelligent, albeit controversial, discussion, i'm in.

    Three points:

    You do realize that one of the greatest advantages of Android is the ability to customize the interface to your unique needs? If your setup is chaotic, then it is up to you, not Google or HTC to organize it for you.

    No, you don't, if you insist that Android needs one. Educate yourself.

    first and foremost if you found a rom you like I dont understand why your complaining other than the joy of trolling. all you've manage to do is validate that android is flexible and customizable enough to please even somebody who's preference is iOS (your boring and look the same referecnes are particularly contradictory and absurd beyond going into detail why so I'll leave that alone).

    secondly which is it that you feel the need for auto killers or app killers (they are not the same)? app killers kill the apps. auto killers manage available memory which is no different than what android already does just different parameters are set.

    Hell anybody willing to buy/keep a phone they dont like because they are too cheap to pay the difference in cost between AT&T and Sprint on phones with the same out the door price really has no business complaining. After you pay the required 4g surcharge even where sprint 4g is not available (almost everywhere) there is hardly any difference comparing apples to apples. stay home one friday instead of having a nice night out and you've made up the difference in cost.

    So rearrange them. Sounds like what you need is someone to hold your hand, a la iPhone.

    Are you really just trying to troll everyone here? Look, if you want an iPhone, go get an iPhone.

    IMHO, Android is a platform focused on being useful and versatile. iOS is a platform focused on being pretty, entertaining, and distracting. Most of the Top 100 iPhone apps are games. It doesn't even have a built-in Turn-by-turn GPS app. The iPhone is nothing but a pretty modernized version of the N-Gage with cute little transition animations. If that's what you want, stop beating around the bush and go get one.

    What is to take seriously? That you prefer the iPhone? So buy one. I'm sorry, there is no cost difference between an iPhone an high-end Android device. Same monthly price... same cost for the phone with a contract. Now if you are buying some entry level Android device, I could see why you think Android is clunky. But then, you aren't comparing apples to apples.

    So you prefer iOS. Big whoop. What you call chaotic most Android fans call flexible. There really is nothing ground-breaking about iOS's just dropping icons on a screen (oh... you can now create a crippled folder to put some more icons in). If you want that with Android... knock yourself out. If you don't... there are tons of options to make it look almost any way you want.

    I've never used a task killer. It is only required because some people really don't know any better (are you listening Verizon?).

    I prefer flexibility over some pre-canned notion of what my interface should look and act like. Some people are better off with the iPhone because they don't want to deal with the flexibility... or can't. Which one you are doesn't matter. It's all about choice and preference.

    Lastly... guess what happens when someone buys an iPhone and decides they don't like the interface? They are screwed. There isn't any practical way to change things like you can with Android. So good... you like MIUI. Awesome. You've rather proved Android advantage.
