The phone market isn't interested in unskinned Android.
The hype around the Google tablet says otherwise. My own experience with the Google Nexus S too. I have never seen a review of a mobile phone center around the proprietary UI features (although I don't follow that kind of hardware porn too closely, true). Care to substantiate that statement?

Sellers and buyers typically have opposite goals: screwing the other side.

buyers aren't interested in screwing sellers, typically.

You must have an iPhone.

iPhone?!?

That must be the strangest deduction I have heard since the time I read Nietzsche's "Also Sprach Zarathustra".

You actually never met any Apple fanboy happy to be ripped off?

iPhone?!?

Yes, and Apple was actively trying to screw them off. I doubt rahulsundaram is in that category of Apple fanboy, or is as obtuse as to be fooled by Apple. Now Google OTOH... :)

iPhone?!?

And you must be a three winged butterfly.

(1) Tablets aren't phones
(2) How many carriers provide Nexus devices?

UI matters?

(1) Trivially true. The difference may or may not be relevant.

(2) I don't know, I bought my Nexus S from Vodafone Spain (which also offers the Galaxy Nexus). Typically buyers will prefer to buy Google phones unlocked and without a contract (i.e. straight from Google).

Since you don't provide any data to support your statement, just a couple of riddles, let me bring up a scientific sample of the first three pages for "Samsung Galaxy S3 review" that come up on Google.

  • CNET lists "Touchwiz" as a minus.
  • TechRadar lists "Top media management" as a pro, which could be construed as UI -- but which can also be just an app.
  • Technorati has a very confusing 4-page review, but at the end says:
    The Samsung Galaxy S III is still one of the top phones on the Android Market right now. Some software issues aside the phone still out performs so many other devices. The hardware side alone is mesmerizing enough and some of the other features just need a bit fine tuning and you have yourself a very worthy phone for a while.
    Let me translate: "software bearable, hardware good".
If Nokia cannot build better hardware than Samsung, then they are in big trouble, Windows or not Windows.
