Default AOSP or GPE or Sense on the One M8

Which is your preference and why? I like sense 6 a lot but ventured out yesterday to PA and its really nice but its something about sense 6 that has me wanting to go back. I am going to test out GPE rom and see how I like it.

In my opinion go with sense. I'm coming from a N5 and I buy the M8 not only for the build quality but also for the sense. If you wanted a stockish/pure android Rom why you didn't buy an Nexus devices.?

But at the end you can try both of them and then to decide.....(the nandroid buck up is our friend)

I really like Aosp look and feel but I find sense 6 is really awesome and seems to run much smoother I just run Viper Rom remove sense as much as I can and use nova launcher and couldn't be happier plus on Aosp you lose features such as HK audio mod or boomsound and the cool features of sense camera. I'm also Leary of the encryption bug I have flashed a couple aosp roms but always revert back to Viper. Sense just seems more snappier to me

Converted to stock GPE and haven't looked back. Sense even though its much better now days is still quite ugly to my eyes and slowed me down with the many unnecessary tips tricks tutorials and so forth but also in general copying and pasting isn't as seamless and the list goes on.

Definitly Sense. Can't find the appeal in AOSP anymore. Perhaps I over flashed AOSP roms in my previous devices that the novelty is just gone.
Sense IMO has the cleanest UI out of all android phones and just as snappy as AOSP.

Sense all the way. So tired of AOSP. It looks so boring too. All mixed up design language. Like their designer has split personalities.

I came from a Nexus 5 and I'm rocking the Sinless GPE ROM and I'm pretty happy with it.
BUT: i gotta say I miss a few things from sense a lot. The camera app being the most important one. Then the weather widget and small things like that. But for me GPE is less cluttered and more fluid than sense.

I bought GPE, so there is my preference. Love the epic battery life of close to 7 hours screen on almost every single charge cycle with heavy use.
For me, Sense was actually annoyance. Now that the core hardware features like dual camera functionality is not compromised, I prefer vanilla android even more.
