I think HTC should fire whoever contributed to conducting that research and I'm not trolling.1)Most people don’t differentiate between apps and widgets. (?)

What is there to differentiate? A widget is part of an app. Do they mean the user interface? Are they inferring to icons as apps? I don't get it. Their logic is bad and they should feel bad.

 

3)Most of you don’t modify your home screens much. In fact, after the first month of use, approximately 80% of you don’t change your home screens any more.

Well, who plays with their home screen every day? A home screen is a set of adjustable functions, it's not an etch-a-sketch. You get your homescreen(s) to a point of desirable looks and function and you leave it at that, muscle memory is formed and thus you get more productive. It's like a driver's seat position, you don't change that every day.

BlinkFeed (other than being a total Flipboard ripoff) seems ok, but redundant. People who use social media will still use the dedicated apps and people who use news aggregators will still use the same apps.Remember the HTC ChaCha with the dedicated FB button for "added functionality"? No? Me neither...

I don't see why Koush needed to make another Superuser app instead of personal "selfish" reasons as he states.Every other aspect of his SU app is covered by SuperSU, except the open source stuff.

I don't see why a SU app should be open source and AOSP buildable, we were fine for the past 4 years now that SU apps are closed source. I smell a Carbon situation all over again, Koush releases his SU app with all the bells and whistles(per app logging etc), we beta test it and when development is finished he makes a basic version that will be pre installed in CyanogenMod ROMs(because he's involved in the development), he packs all the cool features in a paid package and serves it on the market for 5-10 bucks. Suddenly you're wondering why you (a beta tester) are left with a finalised app that does half the stuff it used to when you were beta testing it (for free).I hope I'm wrong though and Koush did this out of the kindness of his heart and to contribute to the Android community.

Everytime I look at that button arrangement I get angry...It's just wrong.Other than that, I believe it's gonna be a great device with a great screen and poor battery life that's gonna be eventually overshadowed by the new Galaxy S.

@gbmillenial Clearly you don't grasp the definition of a core user base. You're telling me that people who love and support android(cause that's a core user base, Google it) don't even know what android is; and they're just getting a phone that looks nothing like the iPhone just because it looks like the iPhone? You're confused.

People need to understand that Nexus doesn't follow AOSP's openness anymore.Google is making the Nexus line a closed garden to force you use their ecosystem more and more.First they removed the external SD card slot, now they're dropping USB OTG support(for external storage, other kinds of peripherals work fine).I wouldn't be surprised if they stopped allowing installation of .apk's outside the play store.I'm a Nexus 7 owner and quite angry that I have to hack around my device to use a USB stick as external storage, while on my Galaxy SIII it works out of the box.I thought about getting a Nexus 10, but now I'm waiting for a Galaxy Tab version of it, because Samsung supports OTG fully.Google is alienating it's core user base, the tech enthusiasts and hackers/power users and I don't really like that.Google, don't be evil!
