Personally: The lockscreen - you're stuck with one choice. A stupid ring...what if I don't like it? too bad htc says. the transitions; where are the choices? you are a big time company, i prefer using Go launcher because it has more of those, and there are customizable lock screens. you can't even change the theme much; its just the back ground color and the backlight of hitting a button.

In my opinion; the only thing that's good is sense 4.0 - which only one device is getting. thats the only good sense that i've seen, and yet that might be crap too (at least in my opinion).

I know many love sense and hate AOSP, but it's really prefference i guess. I love aosp because i can do what i want with my device..change how i wanna navigate, where i wanna navigate and when, not have it set for me and adapt to it even if i don't like it. that's my 2 cents.

I have to echo the sentiments.
Android 4.0 with Sense is utter trash.

The biggest add ons were browser , People (contacts dialer) , Keyboard , and Camera/Gallery.
None of those features are in this and HTCs are all inferior or downright trashy.
Acer Iconia or Galaxy Tab 10.1 ?

I wanted all the ics blueness. Sense 3.6 has been neutered of the blueness.

For shame HTC. For shame.

I figure once a senseless rom is made I will learn how to root my Amaze and do that.

In the meantime aesthetics aside I like this ics leak alright. It seems better than the previous.

The debate about sense vs aosp has got to be one of the most pointless discussions that for some reason gets brought up every day! its a damn matter of opinion. Theres no need for people to go around to different threads and state "sense sucks, sense is garbage" or "aosp sucks, aosp is garbage"... I love sense, some love aosp, (and well for some reason some love ios hehe). And thats great, good for u, but nobody cares that u think sense is trash.. or vise versa, so stop clogging up threads with worthless comments like that. Thanks. Good day now!

I would have to agree with coupetastic- droid . I love the eye candy that they call Sense.

GB AOSP is boring... ICS 4.0.3 and 4.0.4 AOSP is super icy and sexy. Sense always looks the same

It sucks. Deal with it.
It outlived its usefulness after the Hero. It can't be turned off or removed and has less features than the pieces it replaces. The apps I mentioned are
vastly inferior period.
Fragmentation and horrible skin layovers like sense have been a problem for Android that are only getting worse. Lock screen widgets etc could all be added without getting in the way of stock Android. It doesn't so by default it sucks.

You were right. I wants to use a phone with all of the choices I want. But a one way device, means you interact and you cannot do what you want. That why it sucks

You may find them to be inferior and some others may not. When you were raised did someone not explain the concept of opinion to you? How about the concept of open source? The reason that android is so great is because you get the option to choose the android that suits you. If you want AOSP you should have bought a Galaxy Nexus. Roughly the same specs, roughly the same price. Complaining about it simply shows that you made the wrong decision and are blaming it on other people. If you don't like HTC or the way they chose to set up their phones then don't buy them. You have free will. You're using it to complain on the internet right now. Everything that you said is your own opinion. None of it is fact, or even particularly educated. Some of it is just straight up wrong. There are plenty of sense apps that have features that AOSP lacks and vice versa. As you said yourself, "Deal with it." And in case you aren't able to distinguish, this is just my opinion.
Yeah and some people are delusional. Horrible skins like sense UI are part of the android problem and ceased to be part of the solution years ago.
Free will? Seriously we're talking a out the uselessness of embedded skins and your yapping about free will?
Galaxy nexus exlusive to Verizon....ICS exclusively for that phone for nearly 4 months?
That's open source? You mean the OEMS that continue to lock down devices not release drivers and embedded there useless software onto the aosp so Development is a constant battle against limitations instead of expansion of options and creativity?
CM team wouldn't exist if things had been this locked down by OEMs from the beginning. The fragmentation because of crap like Sense hurts everyone .

Edited:

No baiting, arguing, flaming, or drama. If you must do that, take it to PM. Thanks.
