So feel free to comment on any of the three topics. I'm new to android and rooting, but I grasp the general idea of it, how to do it, and the usual benefits of it (over/under clocking, eliminating bloat, etc.). I'm about to purchase my first android phone and I'm between the DX and DI. I'm well aware it's largely a personal preference situation, but feel free to comment on why you think I should get one over the other. If you were once in my predicament, what made you finally take a side? I'm down to essentially picking between UI's. Which one is better? More customizable? Does it even matter since I'll likely root the phone? Both UI's have 7 screens so they both have lots of room for plenty of apps and widgets, so what else matters? Is either faster than the other in real world application? Rooting...I have more reading to do on the topic, but, like I said, I totally get why I should do it...I probably will. I was wondering if anyone could explain how rooting both the DX or DI would change the interface/look of the phone? Would it at all? Does rooting the DI eliminate Sense? If so, what does it look like without it? Any different from the (mostly) stock android 2.1 on the DX? Are there any pics of the before and after looks of either phone? Glad to have droidforums, but what other android forums do you recommend for staying up to date on new apps/rooms/news? Sorry for the length...figured I might as well get all my questions out in one post.
