I prefer the default. The Sense UI looked nice, but I only used it for a while before returning to 1.6 because HTC replacement apps are inferior to Android’s built in apps. The keyboard looks nicer but is a lot slower and more laggy than the default one, the phone app doesn’t show what time missed calls came in at and scrolls super slow, the contacts app doesn’t let you filter gmail groups and also scrolls really slow.
Then you run into the problem of needing to wait for HTC to update sense when a new android build is released, meaning sense users are typically far behind.
Really? I’ve been using my G1 since it came out. The newest 1.6 update has been a horror for me. So many things decided to stop working, and the phone seems so much slower…yes slower, wtf? Even in 1.5 and now 1.6 when I click something I expect it to open right away…nope takes like 10-45 seconds for anything to even happen. Not to mention my home screen getting frozen where I can’t click anything swipe, nothing. I have to turn the phone off and then back on. There is no reason I should be having problems comparable to my old XP machine on a mobile phone. Note: I hardly have any apps installed and my memory is more than half free.
If I were you, stick with the iPhone. I’m ditching the ****ty Android and the G1. Even if its just the G1s hardware to me the softwareis not something I’d want either. I’ve played around with my friends 3GS and iPod Touch and everything acts as you think it should.
