I actually have a Galaxy S5 so it does have buttons but yes I do have a few gestures on too. That seems a little too cluttered for me, too much writing.

Its all about having a boring wallpaper that doesn't really focus on any certain point in it. Also having minimalistic icons helps. Im using Tiny white icons. No real way to customize your app drawer much though.

Your space up top is really empty because of the sky right? You should put a darker transparent background on your music widget and put it up to since the bottom is too cluttered.

And heres my shitty lockscreen

r8/h8/recommend please
>>
>>43035823
One unspoken rule: never, ever put an icon on your homescreen that isn't affected by your icon pack. And your wallpaper doesn't match the icons. And remove the little page counter circle things at the bottom. If you want I would gladly help you out more directly on steam or something.

Try editing the wallpaper so you have an area for the widgets that doesn't overlap with the image.

>>43035823
Those icons really don't match the wallpaper
also, you're using unthemed icons. You're able to individually assign them to certain icons if you're set on that icon theme.

>>43034636
it's unbalanced
wallpaper and icon choice for the wallpaper is nice though

>>43033340
love it, except for those icons on the second screen
why are they stock?

>>43033602
Functional. Still don't like the android L navigation buttons though :I

>>43033949
Get a more consistent icon theme
>>
>>43036039
I personally use Tiny White Icons because they go with everything so I would recommend those until you know what you're doing. Experiment with smaller widgets and wallpapers until you see something you like.
>>

That was an accident. I swiped the dock accidentally and I never do that. I am so sorry.

Hey /phone/

I don't want to make a new thread.

What's the best smartphone on Verizon?

HTC One M8?
Galaxy S5?
LG G3?
>>
/v/irgin here, I need some help regarding the purchase of a Android phone. I have been looking around on the net for subscription free phones and these niggas are pricey as fuck.

I found a HTC Desire 310 and looked up some reviews and its kinda mixed. I can get it for 130 euros so Im considering it. I do not care performswise since I probably would only use [spoiler] whatsapp, kik or facebook [/spoiler]. Im only willing to spend 170 on a phone.

Please guide me.
>>
Not many rice in here, but I am happy with it so far.

They look fine. I went back to 4.4.4 for a bit and realized I didn't like the old ones at all.
>>
>>43036305
Well the lack of built in customization for everything though its like that on most phones. But this lockscreen is seriously cluttered, I don't know if its just my phone but damn I had to remove it completely. Generally its a great phone but only slightly improved on the S4 in all aspects. Oh and it gets your friends jealous.

GENIUINE FAGGOT QUESTION

I have an iPhone 4 and obviously upgrading soon. Why do people bash iOS so much? I have never used Android. What kind of advantages could I get that I can't on Jailbreak?
>>
>>43036573
Well for one theres jackshit support and customization for jailbreaking compared to androids hundreds on thousands of widgets and icon packs. Also most iphones can't get creative as far as I have seen in these threads since they have to follow the basic layout of all iphones.
>>
>>43036573
iPhones are gaudy and overpriced and there's no support for jailbreaking/rooting
>>
>>43036573
The biggest reason why people do it on here is because it's popular and easy to use for normal people. To be as cool as possible, you have to hate on iOS. Plus the way apple does things is generally disliked. With a jailbreak, there's somewhat similar capabilities to what you can do on android, just not quite as much. >>43036615 is somewhat right, except it's the users, not the platform. iOS is decently capable in terms of homescreen ricing, but the kind of people that would use an iPhone are also the kind of people that would change an icon pack, use a shitty icon layout and a wallpaper and call it a day. There are few people who really want to customize on iOS because most would have switched to android already.

how do I get nova launcher prime without paying for it
>>
Not much to see here. Waiting for a recovery for the Moto G LTE before I even root this phone. Also need to let it run for a month to make sure its not flawed in anyway way before I void my warranty.
>>
>>43036722
Well performance is an issue too, but not as much. A 300 euro android can outpreform a 600 iPhone in terms of preformance. So imagine a 600 euro android. But its not that big of a deal since they all run smoothly unless you fuck something up.

look for the words homescreen and customization

Apple doesn't allow apps on the app store to interact with each other, modify anything regarding how the phone works, or do anything other than work inside of their own window. There are no other capabilities other than what they can do inside a window, while running. You can't access the filesystem, or really edit anything. No roms, no launchers. Locked down homescreen. Android allows apps do do pretty much whatever the hell they want, and that's just on apps from the app store. Some people complain about the quality of apps on android, but they still have the choice to use the popular, expensive, simple apps if they want to. At least android gives you the option to use all the others out there.
