Whats wrong with motoblur o.o? From my understanding the issues from the past was the fact it couldn't update android (1.6 android back when Motoblur was released).

You know, admittedly I cannot comment based on experience, just from many reviews I have watched/read, and it seems like the general consensus is that Motorblur sucks and impacts performance in a very negative way.

Is this wrong? Can you simply over right it and install a different UI? I don't know much about Android, so excuse the ignorance.

It's slow, buggy, and ugly. Just replace the launcher with ADW or LauncherPro and you'll be a happy man

Well, funny thing is that sums up what I have heard about it. Although, the look of it is a subjective thing, some people like it.

I've never even heard of the ADW or LauncherPro. What I wonder though, is that do those "launchers" actually remove all Motoblur's integrations?

In fact, Aaron from phonedog.com in a of the Motorola Atrix siad, "...Motoblur on a high end device, that's like a Lexus with a Toyota Corolla engine in it. It just doesn't work out. You know, it's a high end device that's kind of hindered by Motoblur. In my opinion, it's kind of bogged down by it."

No not entirely incorrect. Yes it impacts performance, however on the Atrix I don't see an issue with performance compared to say my cousins Captivate, or my previous Iphone 4, or my sister's Iphone 4.

Yes you can I think, however the Motorblur social page is there to stay iirc. Hopefully someone else can clarify.

I am unsure about the bugginess, I have witnessed some bugs however every single one of them has occurred with applications when open, not exactly motorblur or it's UI as of yet.

Overall I don't mind motorblur. Most of the comments I have read about motorblur came from when it was released along side android 1.6 and was basically sold as-is with NO future android upgrades due to Motorblur's coding.
And lastly I think from the same 1st release some serious issues about privacy with data usage/reporting etc. (from my understanding it would collect data)

Thanks for explaining. ^_^ I don't mind the look of it tbh, my only concern was performance. My current phone is an iPhone 4 actually, and I am gonna be upgrading pretty soon (made a couple threads about it).

If you'd like I can borrow my sisters Iphone 4 and see performance vs performance of the Atrix (me and my sister work together.)

As far as HTC Sense/Motorblur;
