    what's NOT to like about Sense UI?

    So I'm trying to decide between the Moto Droid and Droid Inc for my first Smartphone. With the help of this forum I'm much better prepared to make a decision between the two. I went to the Verizon store last weekend and played with the Moto Droid and Eris to experience Sense UI.

    It seemed to me that the biggest difference between Sense UI and standard Android was that Sense UI gives you 7 home pages, standard Android gives you 3.

    Other than that the two seemed very similar. So, why do some love or hate Sense UI? Is there more to it that I'm missing?

    I'm interested to hear why people like (or DON'T like) sense UI.

    Thanks,

    Sense is a superior gui over standard android however I prefer standard android with my own customizations.

    The thing with sense is it is mainly geared toward people who do a lot of social networking like facebook and twitter. Plus with GUI overlays like Sense and Motoblur is that they add their own apps that are duplicates of stock ones, like on the incredible there are two gallery apps and two music apps and two clock apps, etc. It is all about what matters most to a person. If you social network a lot then sense would be great for you.

    I only played briefly with the Droid Eris and didn't like the Sense UI. If the Incredible was vanilla Android I would be much more tempted by it. But like others have said, it's personal preference.

    You did know you can turn the Sense UI on and off on the Incredible, don't you?

    Didn't know that, thanks for that info.

    Damn it, now I am thinking about it again.

    Just call me old fashioned, but I was so used to vanilla android from the G1, that sense is not even an option for me. It's nice for some, just not my cup of tea.

    I use GDE with the Hero theme, it looks tons better than stock android. You can add cool effects like cubed transitions and it supports up to 7 screens



    Sense UI is much better visually than stock Android but it adds a lot of stuff behind the scenes that you might not want on your phone.

    .... because you have a Droid Incredible and have tried it out for yourself and came to that observation, right?
