What we've learned as Android Stans....

1. Nexus does not have the best hardware
2. Nexus unlocked only get the best updates
3. Better hardware phones are capable of the latest software by flashing Roms
4. If opting for 3, make sure the boot loader is unlocked or you're wasting your time (motorola/verizon)

The iPhone was "one of the best" phones that year. Neither were better than the Epic or EVO. Get over it. The Nexus One was not "the best" that year.



If you have a popular phone it is. My 2-year old Epic is running Jellybean.
i never said that year, im talking about at that time.

Venom is correct. At the time the first Nexus was released, it was the best phone out hardware wise. No other Android phone had the specs that the Nexus One had. It was later dethroned within the same year, but when it came out, it was the best Android phone available.

This was not the case with the second and third Nexus. When the Nexus S was released, it was not the best phone hardware. Same for the Galaxy Nexus. With the first one, at release time, it was the best Android phone. This cannot be said about the other Nexus phones. This is the main reason why I do not support Nexus phones.

I really wish Google would take their Nexus brand more seriously and give it the specs that a flagship Android phone deserves. It should be best in class in every aspect. Not just carry the latest software version.

I just want to see a Motorola Droid RAZR for T-Mobile. They've been slacking on getting good phones. Right now, my only option is the GS III, but I'm not even that excited about it.

S2 S3 and all those will be getting JB pushed this month. So 4.2 will probably make its way to the S3 and S2 and OneX and all those others around Jan or February.

T-Mobile has actually been getting great phones this year. The Galaxy Note 2 is coming to T-Mobile soon and so is the One X+. That is the same high end phone selection as Sprint and AT&T. The only thing missing is the Iphone, and if you are looking at Android phones, that should not even matter. The Note 2 should be coming out in November as well as the One X+. There is even a WP8 phone from HTC coming to T-Mobile in November. The only phone T-Mobile does not have is a Motorola phone. But neither does AT&T or Sprint. Your only option for a Motorola phone is Verizon, and that comes with a locked bootloader.

I am still waiting on Google to force Motorola to release phones on the other carriers as well. Motorola is not going to increase its profits without releasing its phones on the other carriers. Motorola actually has the potential to compete with Samsung in the Android market. Motorola has great build quality, but locked bootloaders and crappy specs compared to the others. Motorola needs to stop using OMAP (or at least more powerful versions) and start making phones on other carriers.

Motorola would be able to upgrade their phones extremely fast on AT&T and T-Mobile, heck even on Sprint even though they are CDMA. Verizon is giving Android a bad name with its f*cked up policies. I hope Verizon goes down in flames for the bullsh*t they pull.

Nobody is talking about being the best phone for a month.

The EVO and Epic made the Nexus One look like it came out in 2009. No other Nexus looks ancient when compared to other phones of it's time frame. Sh*t didn't even have a front facing camera.

evo and galaxy s came out like 6 months after

and the epic 4g was the only galaxy s phone with a front facing camera. and front facing cameras didnt become the norm til the iphone 4 dropped which was also 6 months later

there's plenty of mofos still running 2.3.x.x.x.x.x.

Android is so fragmented, I'm starting to think about buying an ipad mini when it drops
if youre still running 2.3 you either need to get your money game up or you dont know sh*t about your device.

go and buy an ipad. nobody cares.

why do you care if its fragmented? are you a dev? no, youre not.
its the oem's and carriers that fu*k up updates, not google/android.
and i was running jb for the last couple months with my 3d, and ive been running it for about a month with my evo lte.
theres also a bunch of other devices with jb right now.
youre on boxden. try checking out other forums, specifically android forums.
until then, you should take a hiatus from posting on these topics.

nexus one came out six months before the EVO and when it dropped it was the best phone out. This not common knowledge?
