PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless This past week and this weekend I've finally found the time to enter into the colorful world of custom Android ROMs. After figuring out just how insanely great and awesome ClockWorkMod Recovery is, I set about to figure out what the best Ice Cream Sandwich ROM is for the Galaxy SII. While the answer to that question became clear quite quickly, this answer also gave rise to a whole bunch of other questions.

There's not much they can do

It's high time Android vendors stop with all the customising, and just ship plain CM on their (future) devices. Differentiate with hardware instead.

There's only so much these vendors can do to differentiate amongst themselves. The form factor of smartphones (and tablets as an extension) is fairly simple. Rectangular large screen, thin bezel and a few hardware buttons. There's not much leeway here, especially when these manufacturers are releasing new phones every month.

The only thing they can do is differentiate on software in order to compete. I get that, what I don't get is how can they be so bad at it?
