I am going to be talking about how Android manufacture skins suck. Anyone is welcome.

MDB, I will attempt to debate for the con side of your argument.

For those of you who do not know what android skins are, let me give you a little background. Google created Android as an operating system for the newly emerging smartphones. The first smartphone to use the Android OS was the HTC Dream also known as the T-mobile G1 ( I had one of these). Anyways, Google creates the standard OS for Android, but when phone manufacturers create their phones, they tweak the style of the original Android version and add custom widgets, styles, colors, fonts, whatever.

For me this is a good thing because it distinguishes other phone companies and phones from each other. I am not sure about you, but sometimes its nice to be a bit different and have different things from other people around you. Otherwise, in a world where everything would be the same, such as phones, things would be quite boring.

Thank you, I must leave work now. :)

First, thank you for accepting and thank you for the definition.

Second, Custom Android Skins mask what version of Android you are using. The Alcatel Authority has a hideous skin and Android 2.3. They also use a shite load of precious battery life.

Third, you can't turn it off. I love the HTC ONE but Blinkfeed sucks. Again it uses precious battery power and memory.

Lastly, Everyone hates them, and they should disappear.
