i always love this posts from gsmarena
Just like this great article, I would officially like to request the most influential iOS version till date.
My vote goes to iOS 7, the 64-bit OS with the all-powerful A7 was crushing the competition in terms of performance.
Back at that time, I had an HD2. It was running windows from ROM and android from SD. I remember the time I upgraded to 2.3, it was like it had a turbocharger attached to it. I stayed on Ginger bread two years before upgrading to ICS and then to jellybean.
Good old days.
GSMArena once again knocks this out of the park, with another fantastic flashback article.
The fact that it was the last version officially supported by Samsung in the first generation of the Galaxy S helped making it so popular (and resilient over time). Plenty of Galaxy S were in people's pockets for many years.
GregLu, 03 May 2020Still got and Xperia Ray that was on this version and then updated to ICS mainly for the share... moreXperia Ray was arguably the most beautiful Android smartphone to ever come to existence.
When I held it, it felt like something super expensive and did stand out in the crowd.
I began android carrer in 2.1 now looking back 2.3 was the the most celebrated release and my favorite yet , the heated fight against nokia symbian, ios, wp really took off with this release and Flashing various roms was fun
X41, 03 May 2020My first smartphone was Galaxy y young with android 2.3.6. 5 months after i bought one ,lumia ... moreYeah le too first smartphone ever was the samsung galaxy young! I still have that old device!
I had the Samsung galaxy ace plus as my first smartphone and it ran gingerbread out of the box. That introduced me to the world of smartphones!! Definitely nostalgic!! Using wifi Direct to send big video files to other samsung phones was a boon too!!!
I've used this versions. 2.3.6 - 4.2.2 - 4.4.4 - 5.0.2 - 6.0.1 - 7.0 - 8.1 - 9 - 10. 2.3.6 wasn't that bad. It was good. 4.2.2 and 4.4.4 were great. 5.0.2 was useless slow version. 6.0.1 was good but had scrolling issues. 7.0 and 8.1 were great too. 9 was good but not great. 10 is great now. I believe android was great is great and will be great. iOS isn't bad but it isn't for me.
A good and nostalgic article. I had a low-end Android Gingerbread tablet. The screen was 7 inches (most phones nowadays are almost at that size), resistive touchscreen, 4:3 ratio and had 800×600 resolution. It was the one and only: ODYS Loox.
It ran Angry Birds and YouTube decently, but the battery was very weak and I had to return the tablet because the touchscreen had technical issues. Seems like a lifetime since then…
I am still using Kitkat 4.4.4 on my Galaxy S1 (i9000) as my Poco F1 refused to charge suddenly.
Old is gold.
My first smartphone was Galaxy y young with android 2.3.6. 5 months after i bought one ,lumia 520 comes out...how i wish i could buy lumia 520 at that time. And i hate galaxy series for a long time. Then i buy note 8 and still use it today
Funny how early android versions have proper tablet ui but newer modern ones are just blown up phone ui.
I haven't had android OS under 4.4, because i had Symbian nokia, but later i moved to lollipop Samsung note2 that i found it to be very good device with advanced system software, now i own galaxy note edge sens 2014 with modified marshmallow room 6.01 and i'm going to use it till i die, because i have check few of this new phones OS and they just doesn't attract me at all, so MM is very good OS especially if you have some knowledge to mod and six things in it.
had it on my first smartphone galaxy mini 2
Wow... memories! My first Gingerbread device was the Galaxy Player 5.0. That thing was a beast! The last time I checked, it still worked like a champ. I think I still have it in a drawer somewhere...
Too sad Playstore does not work anymore.
Does not even open.
my galaxy s advance, i miss all.
