If You had to Choose a Skin for Android, Which would It be?

This video from the folks at The Verge that is floating around today, is simply put, hilarious. During the clip from their podcast, they interview a guy who goes by the name “Big Poppa Joe” and claims to be the biggest Samsung TouchWiz fan on Earth. Yeah, you may need to read that again. Someone who admits publicly to loving TouchWiz. He may just be a brilliant troll, but if you needed a good laugh as we head into the weekend, this one is worth a watch.

With that said, we would love to hear your thoughts on the rest of the OEM skins out there. I’m curious to know which you would choose if there was no other choice but to have a skin. Stock Android is gone for good, which skin would you choose and why? HTC’s Sense, Motorola’s Blur, Samsung’s TouchWiz or something else?

As of today, I would go with Blur. While it was complete garbage for a a year or two there, the latest version is not all that bad (assuming you like the color blue). With its built in MotoCast software, semi-customizable launcher, gradually improving camera software, and new lockscreen, it’s not half bad. My opinion may quickly change on this once I get my hands on the HTC One X and see Sense 4.0, but until then, as surprising as it may sound, I would go Blur.

    Sense, then Blur.

    yeah, I mean if I had to choose one I guess I would go with blur.  And seriously not trying to make a joke here, but its because I like the color blue and like the dialer.  and bc the ladies love it.

    I haven’t experienced Touchwiz, a friend of mine has a Razr and I played with it for a while, and I own a Rezound.  I like the Sense skin, mostly because it has very useful widgets, it links your contacts across many programs, phone, e-mails, facebook, etc.  I like the look of the weather clock, I actually used the Fancy Widgets copy of it on my OG Droid.  Some say it is huge bloat and that it slows down the phone, meh, my phone is lag free and fast so I am happy.

  • NinjaBlur becuz the Unified Inbox is a great addition
