    Is it just me that hates it?

    For me the lockscreen is awful. Like it wasn't bad enough being told to pull your ring, I think the interface is cumbersome at best.

    The dragging of icons into it is also crap. I don't like the way the icon doesn't enlarge so you can see it behind your finger.

    Then other than the lockscreen the only other benefit I could see was the 3d scrolling. Which for me other than the animation you get when going from seeing the 7 screen blowout to zooming back into one screen, seems a bit lame and not pronounced enough.

    I couldn't see any reason to keep it so went back to my nandroid backup prior to flashing it.

    So now basically want to know if I'm missing out on anything else I hadn't noticed. Cos as it stands my LP Pro setup has it caned.

    The "Pick your Ring" I found a bit childish too, but there you go.

    I think a lot of folk may like it because it was new and exciting and we weren't supposed to have it. Like yourself with LPP, I have a Go Launcher setup I'm very happy with and Widgetlocker so the Sense 3.0 Lockscreen doesn't bother me either.

    It might work better on the sensation though.

    Everyone has different taste, some like it, some don't.

    Most people love CM7 but I hate it, but I know that everyone has different preferences

    I use sense 3.0, never tried widget locker so can't really compare it to anything, but I find it handy being able to go straight to camera for example.
    Mainly though I like it because it's pretty. And I'm easily amused by spinning the carousel. :D

    I'm not the only one then :D

    I remember when I first flashed a Sense 3.0 ROM and I was immaturely giggling whilst spinning it, my fiancee asked me what I was giggling at so I showed her (still giggling) and she looked at me like I was stupid lmao :D

    Ah, spinning has to be accompanied by giggling! Everyone I've shown has giggled along with me. Granted, they were probably drunk at the time...

    I had to remove an argumentative posting. Let's talk about Sense 3.0 and not other members, please. Locking the thread may be the way to go here, let's see.
