Horrible OS. It's a phone, FFS!!! Look at all the customization options we have... Is that to hide the fact it doesn't work properly???
I have at the moment OneX, 8x, HD7 and HD2. In the past I had phones with windows mobile before android was an idea. Phones like xda, xda 2s, o2 orbit, mda, mda compact, o2 orbit 2, htc diamond, diamond 2.
My first Android experience was on HD2, then I got Motorola defy and htc HD now OneX. Every time I go back to MS OS. In fact I hate apple but would buy iPhone over Android after OneX fiasco. One huge gripe I have with Android that has not change since day one and will not change. They do not work properly out of the box. You have to root it and remove loads of crappy apps to make the damn thing stable-ish and somewhat responsive.
FFS look at spec of OneX and yet I had lag, few seconds of freezes on apps, os and launcher, random crashes, reboots and odd ball issues. Till rooted it was completely unreliable in my view. HD7 with it's miserable spec in comparison to oneX is running smoothly, stable and no lags.
In regards of apps, get an iPhone if you use app like tapatalk for browsing forums. FFS you got a Smart phone and you use apps. Open the browser, go to forum and enjoy full functionality. No lags, no freezes no issues. If you want to install/buy app for everything get an iPhone.
Do not see people installing tapatalk style apps on their PC's so why on phones?
Your post was humorous, if you want to talk about the Android experience, you should first understand it. HTC's use HTC Sense interface, which is much heavier than the Stock android interface. Of all the OEM UI's its one of the laggiest. Its unfair to talk on all android devices, based on your experience with a HTC. Blame HTC for putting on all those 'crappy apps'.
Ok then have to agree with that. However if anything you need to be happy HTC is doing that. At the end Google is releasing unfinished OS with missing real UI under excuse you can customize it.
Why they can not release their own UI that is fluid and does not take up resources, my opinion is because it is impossible. Any serious UI for Android will be big and resource hungry there is just so much missing in stock Android.
BTW I also tried Nova launcher and Samsung UI still as much lag as any other just different feel.
Here we go again.
Android can be used, but only if you use the highest end phones. For most of its market-share, these phones that actually work will not be accessible. Windows Phone works like a charm on devices android won't even boot properly (lumia 610 for example)
