Help us name Motorola’s Android experience [Poll] (Update: And the winner is …)

Now that Motorola has killed the MOTOBLUR name, we need to find a new one. Since it won’t be fun to call it “Motorola’s Android experience” every time we talk about it, we asked you–our readers–to come up with some new and creative names. And you guys didn’t disappoint. With more than two dozen good suggestions, we had a hard time choosing our favorites, but here we have them.

You can vote for the ones below, or if you feel like you have a better name, just let us know in the comments section. I’ll update this article with the final name a couple days from now, so make sure you follow us on Twitter if you don’t want to miss it. Happy voting!

UPDATE: MOTOBLOAT! With 35.67% of all votes. We shall call Motorola’s Android experience MotoBloat from now on. At least until they give it an official name.

    can I just call it the shit that ruined motorola for me?

    • http://Website Daniel

      Hey, let’s be honest here. This is hardly what ruins Motorola for hardcore fans, since they care far more about installing custom roms than whatever is preinstalled. Both for playing with the device and to keep up to date (which is delayed regardless of MOTOBLUR or any other manufacturer build; “skinned” phones are consistently updated earlier than stock any non-Nexus phones). So, what really stops non-casuals from buying Motorola is definitely the locked bootloader.

    How about Motorola’s “Complete and utter failure of an OS modification that is horrible to use and causes errors with the OS”?

    How about just Blur? It’s so much simpler, and it doesn’t suggest any negativity.

    Hmm… I thought Motorola was made “BLURred” Android experience in the first place…
    So, I’d like to pay tribute to Motorola with voting MOTOBLUR. :P

      You have got to be kidding me, right? A serious discussion about MotoBlur… here? Where even the host creates posts fully designed to whip up hatred of Blur (deserved or not)?

      Just read some of the posts… at one end you have people pointing out how “bland” Blur is because it is the least intrusive of any of the current skins out there (which it is…now) , to those that feel that it is so over-burdensome to the system.

      Just watch, as this comment gets voted down into oblivion because I don’t have blind fury hate for MotoBlur! How dare I be that way? Sense is the only skin that is allowed to be spoken about in a positive light, even though it is so big it has to be trimmed down to be stuffed onto the Desire… no, that one is cool, and BLUR is so evil that we must dogpile on and make every half-assed remark that can be thought of at its mere mention.

    How about kill the damn skin that nobody wants, earn cash with the synergies that you will get from not having to code it on every phone and every new version of Android and just call it Motorola AOSP???

  • McLovin

    I get it that you all hate Motorola. I’m not a fan and I stopped paying attention to what ever they sold since I heard about their locked boot loader policies. But what other crap have they been pulling to piss everyone off?

    • http://Website Daniel

      How about taking ages to release an unstable mess of Froyo, replacing a slightly less unstable Eclair, for the Milestone, with no hope in sight of ever fixing those problems? And all that for a phone that was THE high-end device, when it was released? Great Hardware, shitty support – Motorola, never again!

    • http://Website JayMonster

      Except of course the fact is that the Droid X was the first non Nexus phone to get Gingerbread, and Sense is the reason that HTC is having trouble fitting Gingerbread on to the Desire… but why let facts get in the way of a good bashing session, eh?

    If it looks like Blur and feels like Blur then it is Blur.

  • http://Website Salty

    How bout “Moto-root-and-reflash”. Oh wait, all their current phones have locked boot loaders despite the fact that they say they support unlocked bootloaders. Besides, the screens on all their devices looks like crap, and they’re pretty much the only ones using TI’s semi-antiquated OMAP processor. Yuk.

    If they’re going to take this “skin” seriously, then I have a name for it

    Call it MUSE – Motorola User Social Environment

    Or MUSIC – Motorola User’s Social Interface Control

    They will change “Blur” to “Magic” or some intriguing name like that.
    I have do not have any experience with the Blur UI, but I would just add my own launcher if I really needed something else.
