One thing I really appreciate about android is it’s ability to be customized multiple ways. This is a screen shot from my htc evo. I had a minimalist theme going on here and was running myns warm 2.2 rom. When I showed my evo to a couple of buddys who have evos as well, they were surprised.
Personally I really enjoyed my phone with this look and I’m sure if others knew how to achieve it they would have custom looks on their phones as well. The problem is android doesn’t provide step by step instructions for people who’d like to go deeper than the stock rom. I really wish google would support rooting phones and flashing roms and kernels so more people could benefit from an overall improved phone.
