Haha This thread makes Android look cooler. I would seriously consider getting an Inspire. For $70, it's a steal. But I think I'd rather have an iPhone for now.

Keep up the thread xD

If that was stock Android with zero mods/hacks involved, then I understand you perfectly. But since you and most of the other posters have rooted and/or installed mods/hacks/custom roms, well iPhone users can also likewise modify their UI by jailbreaking.

That is nothing more than HTC's normal dock and menu bar, with a "Beautiful Widgets" weather widget, and a "Minimalist Text" widget for clock. Regardless of rooting or custom ROM, any HTC Android phone with Sense could look like that.

When I said stock Android, I mean stock, vanilla Android sans HTC Sense, Samsung Touchwhiz and all those other skins and UI layers. I understand what you mean though.

Pure stock.. I havent rooted my phone.
As the poster above said, it just downloadable widgets etc from the Android market.

Your first post was suggesting that you need to "hack" and root or install custom ROMs in order to really customize the look and feel of Android. You don't. It doesn't matter if you have vanilla Android on a Nexus, Sense on an HTC phone, TouchWiz on a Samsung, Blur on Motorola, etc. Widgets and Launchers are the things that contribute the most to the custom appearance of different Android phones, and those can be installed on any phone, rooted or not.

Yeah, it only looks like SevenInchScrew is the only one with a custom rom (and only because he mentioned it in the post)

Here's mine - though I try to keep it as minimal as possible. I might try something more adventurous in the future. (Nexus S, Stock NO ROOTING)

Thumb resize.

Thumb resize.

EDIT: Just saw the ss of SevenInchScrew with the icons without labels, so I took the labels off the four icons in my shots. Though I won't go into the trouble of reuploading

Yep. I am both rooted and using a custom ROM, but even then, to the point of what we were talking about earlier with SL2008, getting my phone looking the way it did wouldn't require any that. It is just LauncherPro+ with some various widgets. I've since updated the look of my phone. I'll upload new pics later tonight when I'm home....

*Edit* - Here are the updated pics of my phone...

HTC EVO 4G running CyanogenMod 7. I like (and prefer) very minimal setups with little widgets, and very few to little icons on the homescreen. I only have 1 screen which is perfect for my usage. I just recently moved the taskbar to the bottom of the screen and I absolutely love it.

The lockscreen is Widget Locker with some Xperia Arc clock.
Thumb resize.

Now the homescreen. I used to have a complex minimalistic text widget that displayed time, weather, and much more but it got annoying. I deleted that setup and went with a simple big clock and date.
Thumb resize.

I'm using the aquarium background with vanilla android myself.

BTW: if you want to get rid of the giant H or M on your contacts' icons, try changing the 'type' of number from mobile or home to something like cell or pad or something.. oddly enough android OS only makes H's, O's, and M's on those icons, anything that starts with anything else will not put a letter over the picture.

Thank you for that tip...I was wondering about that

Yea, WidgetLocker is totally awesome. You should check out THIS thread over at XDA, and all the custom unlocker themes you can use. That way you don't have to use the default-look slider any more, if you want to customize it more.
