So a friend gets a Galaxy S as his first Android phone and asks me to help him figure it out. Now, I'm not super android man, but I've had a Droid for about 9 months, I've run a number of desktop replacements (currently on LP+), and feel fairly confident that I can work my way around almost any Android Phone. That was until I played with the galaxy S. All I can say is WTF was Samsung thinking. It's almost like they wanted to build an Iphone but couldn't make up their minds. They Have ****ed with the UI at almost every level. The icons are bigger, buttons are moved around, they even ****ed with the layout of the dialer. Most annoying of course is their app drawer - no center activation button and sideways scrolling? WTF?!?!?!? the phone was powerful as can be, but I was screaming at all the differences that I could not find to offer an improvement over vanilla android. I just wanted to tell him to install LP+ or get rid of all the Samsung crapware and root the phone to get vanilla. I'll never understand this insistence on modifying the base OS. Do it if you have to, but at least give users the option to run the "classic" vanilla look.
