AnonD-716026, 07 Dec 2017Well...how do you think about the phones of 2017? ;)well.. what do you think of phones from 2030?
potatoman1, 02 Jan 2018It's hilarious seeing all the people from 2011 complaining at how big the screen wasactually back in the day the social media virus was not spreaded like today and people had more time for theirselves instead of throwing their life watching a big screen and doing nothing
i used to have this one, for more than 2 years
the phone got dropped of my hands into the water and never been charged again since the time
but i have to say this was the best and purest phone I've ever had
I still love this beauty, i really miss those days i was spending happily like I'm having the best phone ever and no one can do anything to beat my phone.
Macbeth, 01 Jun 2018What's the latest version of Android that can run on this (by installing a custom ROM)?7.1.2 on XDA.
Macbeth, 01 Jun 2018What's the latest version of Android that can run on this (by installing a custom ROM)?It runs Nougat with only a few minor hickups. On XDA, you can find Unlegacy, Slim and more. ZeeLog provides unofficial Resurrection Remix and Lineage on his blog.
Some users prefer Marshmallow, or even Kitkat because they use less ram and maybe also have fewer bugs.

Had to change it since mine only supports CDMA, but it was still fine after over 5 years of use and abuse (I was half trying to kill it on purpose).
Got mine in 2012. Still have it as a backup as I have a work phone now (iphone 6 which is average).
It's battery started to die in 2014. I bought a replacement Samsung battery however phone would still not hold charge. Just this week I would get simply 30mins with the phone in my pocket (drive to work) and without use it would go from 100% to 0%.
So I went to shop for another backup phone - the Nokia 5 this week.
I factory reset the phone and no joke, the battery use is now like new! haha.
Crazy little phone detected that I was about to chuck it and it is alive again.
I am keeping the apps to a minimum and leaving the storage as free as possible.
I like the removeable battery as it means I keep my spare as backup when travelling.
The new phones now simply don't have that except for very few.. so looks like I might keep this one until it is truly dead.
tbh - I was thinking of just going back to a simple nokia to recieve calls as the battery lasts forever on them :)
I am still using this phone and it is still perfect!
I am very sad that today's phones don't have such quality.

AnonD-659503, 06 Apr 2017Good phone, but the battery drain is insaneMine always heats up when am online
This was a great phone in it's day. The reason it never made it to the final version of Android 4.4.4, was due to the Texas Instruments CPU. TI pulled out of the mobile arm CPU market. This left Samsung/Google unable to get newer official hardware drivers. If you were to use this phone today (2017), you still have a good app selection. The main drawback is newer apps may be slow or sluggish.
Luckily, my 3-year old phone survived from huge falls. Unfortunately, the performance goes far more worse.
I have been using this phone daily since 2012 (now May 2017). Hopefully, I can give you feedback here.
Back then, Nexus phones were among the best deals performance/quality/cost available. I have to admit that it didn't age so bad even if it is now obviously a lot harder to run "heavy" apps smoothly (tends to crash most of the time). IMO, it is still a decent phone despite its outdated specs.
I had to replace the supply circuit in 2014 (covered by guarantee) due to a micro-usb port defect. I also more recently replaced the battery for a newer and slightly larger one as the old one was hardly during a day. It is also inclined to overheat...
But anyway, Cyanogen OS (and now Lineage OS) allows it to stay a little more in the game despite its flaws. I will certainly change in the next few months but for what it's worth I am entirely satisfied with this phone.
