I do not like the new icons used for the status bar. They are smaller and harder to differentiate the details of them. Please give me the option of my old icons back and allow me to choose my own brightness level. The grey icon on black, I do not like. Give me my white symbol icons back!
Google changed the default color scheme for Android to be darker with the release of Gingerbread. Unless the manufacturer uses a non-standard overlay (like HTC Sense, or Samsung TouchWiz) the phones will most likely use the default scheme, which is how the LG Optimus is.
