Breaking fast with dates is optional.  Needless to say, if a person doesn't like the taste of dates, that's certainly not a problem.  During Ramadan as in other days, one can eat anything one likes or can afford as long as that food is categorized as Halal.

Concerning sahoor and iftar timings ....

Briefly and plainly, the time for starting and ending the fast is very clear in the Quran.  But for centuries people have had the problem of dismissing the Quran in favor of the laws of humans. 

If you check any prayer calendar, they mention "Fajr" and "sunrise" timings with a difference of at least 1 and a half hours between the two.  But as referenced in the Noble Quran and also from the perspective of  meteorologists, Fajr or dawn appears approximately 40 minutes prior to sunrise.   Actually I don't even know of any hadith that says Fajr must be that long before sunrise.  So, this must be a  unanimous personal decision of the circle of medieval jurists.  And of course, as we know, our present-day jurists are in the habit of blindly accepting the missteps of their predecessors and also the absurdities of the hadith with total disregard to the assertions of the Noble Quran.  Very unfortunate but this is the situation.

As for Iftar time dot at sunset comes straight from the hadith.  For e.g. here is one out of many.   "It is reported that The Messenger of Allah (T) used to break his fast before the Maghrib Salaat." [Ahmad and Abu Dawood] 

In fact, the hadith goes to the extent of lying against the Prophet (pbuh) and defaming him by falsely claiming that the Prophet broke his fast before sunset.  For e.g. check this post  And now, hadith on breaking fast before sunset.   The purpose of such absurd and foul narrations is to bring changes in Islam by making it deviate from the Quran.  This particular hadith narrating such a false story by accusing the Prophet (pbuh) of breaking the fast before sunset was an attempt to change the Muslim method of fasting as confirmed in the Quran and making it similar to the altered fasts of Christians in which they are allowed to consume liquids.  After all, I have no doubt that initially, Allah Almighty also commanded the Christians to fast the same way as instructed later in the Quran.  But the Christian clerics changed it.  They were the same sort of people as those who later began narrating these unauthentic ahadith to distort Islam.   Such mischief has been inherent of humans for centuries, rather millenniums.  Allah will deal with them, InshAllah.
