i didn't believe i would ever think this, but i'm actually liking blur in GB. i'm sure some of these are general GB benefits, but i think some are thanks to blur, too. the things i really like: - the speed! everything is faster and smoother, even pinch zooming in the browser. this is probably thanks to GB. - the skin. the colors, the way everything (such as the dialer) has highlights and reflections, the icons, the transition animations. this is really a very nice looking skin/theme. - the dialer. i love that you can open the dialer and start typing your contact's name using the numbers and it will find them. this is the way dumbphones used to work, and i have really missed it. not sure if this is blur or GB. - i like that you get a huge list of recent apps when you hold the home button with the blur launcher. i like a lot of things about the new blur launcher. unfortunately, i can't live without my extra dock icons so i'm back to ADW at least for now. - sleep mode. that is an excellent idea for when you have to turn off your phone (eg airplanes) but want it to come back on instantly. again not sure if that's blur or GB. - CRT off animation. OK, i added that but it's still awesome. seems like there are other things, but i have to hand it to moto on this one. i still think i would rather have vanilla android and much quicker updates, but i'm not going to be actively looking to remove blur for the first time since getting the X at launch. any other favorite things?
