Why Does Everyone Hate Verizons UI?
I'm just curious, why does everyone dislike Verizon's UI and what specifically about it don't you guys like?
There are people out there buy Nokia phones (The real ones, not the Pancrap that Verizon sells) just for their UI. Believe or not, for whatever idiotic reason, people also like Motorola's UI. Why? I don't know but they do.
The consumer should have more of a choice and a variety of options. Someone said a while ago that Verizon's practice was "socialism for cell phones" or something to that effect and I completely agree. Couldn't have said it any better. The company who makes the phone should have their own UI on it. Not Verizon custom B.S.
P.S. The way I have mine customized on my 8300 it is way more intutive that a standard moto UI or some of the Samsungs I have used from other carriers.
I think thats what Verizon should have done instead of completely revamping the phones UI.
1) Moto lovers, the Motorola UI was very customizable. You can set shortcut keys, change Icon to Text only, etc. Plus Any Moto that has the Standard UI, RAZR/KRZR has some issues.
2)Commie haters. People compare the Red Bars on the display (which is not changeable on most models) as communist.
3)Tech Savy. People who want the Manufacture UI because that is how it was supposed to be. Most seeking a Alltel Rep to flash their VZW Moto phone to the Moto UI or using Bitpim to put the right UI on.
4)Bandwagoner. These people read the forums and see how people complain about the UI and jump on the bandwagon. You can tell who they are because they complain that their LG doesn't have...
I really don't care about the UI since I had phones with that Ui for the first time.
I would like the ability to remap a few buttons, but other than that, Verizon's UI is fine by me.
