Been waiting for today but now I don't know which phone to get lol.

I haven't used Sense since the Evo 4G and didn't really care for it, so I'm not sure if I'll like the new version or not. I'm wondering if I get the Verizon model, can I just install the GPE rom to get vanilla android? Obviously once the phone is rooted and all that jazz. I've never owned a phone that had a GPE edition so I don't know if you can flash the GPE rom on the non-GPE version...

There is a good chance we will see GPE ROMs if we get root. The Verizon M7 did.

Or you can just install nova launcher or the Google play launcher until someone develops a GPE rom

Nice, well then I'll probably just get the Verizon model and if I don't like Sense, I'll just install a different launcher while waiting for a GPE rom.

Gotta agree with you there. Sense has always ended up being my go-to. Especially since the M7 and now the M8... it's just soooooo smooth. Even my friend with a Nexus 5 was impressed by how smooth it is.
