I have an Xperia UL and for my usage i wasnt very satisfied with the stock battery/msgs/ apps and browser. Battery problem fixed completely ever since Ive got an extended one from mpj. For a messaging app, I think Viber is pretty good. I occationally use Yelp to find interesting stuff if I travel to a new country or city. And I prefer Firefox over any other browser on Android
Which are the stock apps you like?
for me..i use chomp sms, opera beta/uc browser, friendcaster and falconpro..though i do love dark themed apps whenever possible.. once i do find an app replacement for stock.i uninstalled those system apps
