So I'm pretty much sick of HTC Sense (and therefore my Desire in general) for the following reasons:
THE BIG ONE: Lack of space on the phone partition
The Sense UI calendar is rubbish. No view of the day of the week you're picking when creating a new event ... WTF?
Contacts sync with Google Contacts: I have absolutely no way to sync selected groups. I've spent hours going through forum posts ... seems to be a very common problem, and for the desire I see no solution to this one. When my contacts are taking up 15 MB of precious space, I have 2 options: delete a stack of them from my Google account, or find another option on the phone (this is the option I'm leaning towards).
Speed. I played with my friend's Nexus One with Gingerbread, and the speed is incredible. My Desire's speed is lacking.
Battery life. I'm pretty sure Sense and all its background processes are sucking a lot of battery power unnecessarily. I cannot get through a day without charging. If I go to work and forget to charge it during the day, it'll be dead before I get home. And I hardly use my phone at work.
So, assuming Sense is the cause of all or most of the above issues, I figure my Desire and I would be much better friends if I could rid it of all that Sense gunk.
Has anybody done this? Got any links to tutorials I can follow (since I haven't even rooted my phone yet).
