Now that I'm done with branded machines, this is even easier.
My first smartphone was the Samsung Galaxy S2, and since shortly after getting it, I've been using ROMs that were as close to AOSP as possible to avoid all that TouchWiz and carrier crap.
Sometimes I wish that more brands were like the Japanese brand Muji, who pretty much disregard brand image in favor of minimalism, practical functionality and quality.
