I like Sense UI to an extent, but i can see its disadvantages.

The modding community has given a choice for those in the know. For those who are not, this fact does suck for them.

eXDee: I like Sense UI to an extent, but i can see its disadvantages.

It's worth pointing out that "in the know" is self-selecting. Anyone can be "in the know". Or choose not....(by default).

 The biggest selling handset in the world is the iPhone, and it's no wonder why...

I've said it before, but the consumer should be given the freedom, not the telcos. We all know they screw things up time and time again :P

Not that it matters to your point, but both Nokia and Rim make more smartphone handsets than Apple - just thought I'd set the record straight. :)

The Telcos have the power through their network ownership, so unless governments get involved, something that many will find philosophically repugnant, there's little hope that will ever change.

Somebody else mentioned the fact that most people looking for a smartphone just want it to work and really those people don't give a rat's whether it's an Android or MeeGo or iOS device so long as they get their 'must-have' apps and it works like the iPhone their friends have.

I want an Android phone because I don't want to follow the herd into Apple Land, which I'm sure will make many roll their eyes. But I also want independence from what I think are overly-restrictive practices from handset makers and telcos. Android seemed to be the way. I hope that it's true. 

I think you've summarised some of my feelings quite well too.

I also meant single biggest selling model - but I'm doubting myself about that statement now... :P

I had more to say but I've forgotten XD

Oh right, sense UI. I quite like some of it. Some of it annoys me. What REALLY annoys me is I can't pick and choose features. I'd like to use some of the widgets but with Launcherpro Plus.  The e-mail app is invaluable to me during the weekday, and I haven't been able to find one that is on par with HTC's solution. As a result I have Home Switcher installed to switch between them. Sense UI when I'm at work/during the day and Launcherpro when I'm at home. Annoying to switch, but it's currently the only solution I have.
