Alright, so are we talking aesthetics, or widgets? Looking at mine, is there anything that you like that you'd like further explanation of?

If I may suggest, check out the screenshots thread on the XDA forums for whatever your phone is. That's the best way of getting ideas about customisation. And a lot of custom widgets and themes and apps crop up there before they are available on the market - if they become available at all.

I've got an HTC EVO 4G running Cyanogenmod 7. Thing's a beast. Fast as phuck hardware and 4g is insane.

Cynaogenmod should be required for all android users. It's that great.

Other sweet apps are WidgetLocker (lets you put widgets on the lock screen and customize the lockscreen). Dropbox is a godsend for a college student. The Kindle app is good if you like to read. Pandora for obvious reasons. FxCamera is my favorite third party camera app. The stock camera could use some work. And ofc the Barcode Scanner is a great tool for the budget conscious.

Free/cheap apps are available to let you customize the Android UI in so many different ways. Android is really great with personalization. XDA forums will get you started.

Can you explain to me exactly what a widget is? >_>

Aesthetics would be cool, I like looking at pretty things. ^^

*looking at your phone* Waitttt, there's a winamp app now or what? Also, it looks really crisp man. If my phone was half as awesome as that I'd be happy.

^ A widget is like an app that is running on your screen that you don't have to launch. Like, a clock widget. You place the clock wherever you want on the screen and it runs there. There are music widgets, informational widgets, social networking widgets...

Think of them like apps that are running on your homescreens. Apps that you don't have to click the icon and load to use.

Amazing. I have an HTC Inspire. Hands down the best phone you can buy for $100, and one of the few with a dual core processor. I haven't done any rooting or any of that crap to it, it's just unnecessary. Essentials are a task manager and Where's My Droid, and that's it.

A widget is basically a little app that sits on your desktop (or homescreen on an android phone) and dynamically changes. An example is the clock. Probably the simplest widget, all it does is sit there and updates itself. Other widgets do other things, for example, the calendar, the facebook widget and the winamp control.

Theming is a bit more difficult on Android phones, but not impossible and relatively straightforward once you get the hang of it...but there is a learning curve.

I'd actually take the time to see how to root it, but I don't think I fully utilize my phone enough to warrant installing a new OS.

Two things.
The inspire isn't dual core and you couldn't fathom what your missing out on. Gingerbread doesn't even need a task killer. It's well worth rooting just to activate tethering without paying 45$ a month.

I don't like Cyanogenmod roms much. I had one on my old Backflip for a week, went back to jrodds rom, then when I got my HTC inspire 4g, I tried the cyanogen for it, didn't like it and went to an optimized/rooted stock rom. TPC's optimized ROM to be exact.
