Exactly! I love my Nexus S even more than my iPhone 4, but something different is needed. I am over the icons along a grid look. And, the Android WP7 themes are a joke to Android. No really, stop it.
Actually, the phone is in excellent condition, and buying a new shell seems nice, but I generally find them to be very cheap. I also would rather sell it here, assuming I do. XD
Edit to add:

Sell your phone and get a Galaxy S II. Same screen, over twice as fast, with much better battery life, and it costs the same.
But then maybe not. I need a new quote for my sig, and maybe if you actually get a WP7 device you can stop mooning over how great you think it is.
Ohay nathris, I'm happy to see you've found mah thread. ^_^
First off: LOL @ that screen shot (I really did laugh). That's the exact point I was making. It's crap, worthless, and no where near like the real thing. Yes, I've tried it (all of them). It's hilarious that Android fanboys continue to point to crappy made themes like that as a comaprable alternative to Windows Phone 7 Metro UI.
"Look what Android can do!" Uh, yeah, if I want a medicore poser theme like that, to give a, sort of, Windows Phone 7 look, I'll be sure to check it out. >_>
Here we go with specs. Read the link I posted. Windows Phone 7 doesn't NEED a Dual Core. The specs it has are perfect for it's needs. Is it slow? No. It's comparable, easily, to the fastest Android device on the market. Hands down. I've never heard anyone say, "Man, my Windows Phone 7 device is so slow!" Android? Yep.
Android needs beefy specs, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, it's just how it is. They're different platforms, comparing them based on things like that is ridiculous.
That's like taking a Honda NSX, and comparing it's smaller less powerful engine to a Corvette and saying, "Derp, the Corvette engine is bigger and means it faster".
And, as your siggy states, I'm not going back to an iPhone, waste of time, Android is far better.Edited by Miki - 11/6/11 at 1:01am
