Hello all;
I am seriously considering a new Android phone and would like some advice from you guys that have been using the platform for a while.
I originally came from BlackBerry Storm2. I really liked them. I liked how you could customize and personalize them. Menus upon menus.. to make it the you want.
But, I got tired of the boring old interface and lack of apps. The phone was slow and had to do batter pulls constantly.
Then I jumped on the iPhone 4 bandwagon. The phone looks and works well. Nice user experience, fast, beautiful screen... but its for ladies.
I hate the way you have to use it the way Steve Jobs thinks you should use it. It has a useless lock screen, i can't customize anything without jailbreaking. I can't even set a custom text message tone.
I've been doing some reading on Android, and I think it will offer the best of both worlds. Great user interface, lots of apps, menu systems... almost like a BlackBerry on steroids.
What can you guys recommend for a phone. I really missed the notification LED that the BlackBerry had and the iPhone can't offer.
I was thinking of either the Motorola Atrix or Samsung Galaxy S2.
I'm on Telus, so it would have to be an AT&T/Rogers/Bell/Telus compatable phone.
What are the pros and cons to a pure Android experience over Android with some sort of sense UI put in by the manufacturers?
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.
