    Hi there.

    I am trying to migrate from being an iPhone user, so I have purchased an S3 and thought well i'll give it a week and if its not up to scratch i will return it and fire up my 4S again.

    Now I cannot stress enough how grated I am so far, I have to say the phone seems immense and Touchwiz 5 for the most is pretty slick.
    But the High inverse contrast black on white text is so 80's.
    I really dont care how efficent it is for an amoled screen, for me it is pathetic looking.
    And well what grates on me so much is that the great thing about Android is that it is suppose to accomodate every users individual customisation needs and thats its greatest appeal.

    However i cannot find any way to change this easily.

    I have since rooted my S3 but still cannot find any info on what text file i can amend to change these settings in Touchwiz.

    I would greatly appreciate some input from perhaps a dev who can point out where i can look for these settings as I am fairly sure comparing to the HTC Sense would perhaps identify the config settings to change.

    Please please please help before I give up and move back home to apple.

    Thanks in advance, Al.

    Any ideas where else to post this to get a response, perhaps another forum?

    Wow, I have been bowled over by the serious amount of responses i have had. Never mind the user Shotgun84 moving my post from the correct 'Rooting' forum to a this Samsung S3 forum.

    Anyways - thought i would share my resolution in case it helps anyone else in the future.

    If you have your phone rooted - you can remove stock Touchwiz email and install the Galaxy nexus ICS stock email app - which is fantastically brilliant in comparison to TW. Much more fluid, responsive and professional looking.

    Hope this helps someone else.

    Later, Al.

    Sorry I moved it out of the root forum because the email app isn't actually a root problem. All I can suggest is trying a third party app from the play store. I was hesitant to suggest as I've been happy with the stock so I couldn't recommend one which has the look you're after. I was banking on someone else having a recommendation:)
