Look at how small it is when shown in the hand. How cute!

Amazing how outdated it is even though it's only about 4 years old.

This and the HD2 are examples of how XDA's Linux Gods never let anything die.

only 4 years? that's pretty much time, I doubt anyone here keeps any device as their main phone for more than 2 years, anyway it's even more amazing how a 2013 device like an iPhone 5c is already so outdated against other price ranged phones

And this is why Android's community is so awesome. Can you run IOS 7 on the 3GS, or WP8 on the Samsung Focus? I don't think so.

Running something doesn't mean it'll run smoothly.

My iPod Touch 4 (basically iPhone 4, but without 3G) is running iOS 6 and still lags a lot, also quite a few random glitches.

I´m already running 4.4(cm 11) on my galaxy nexus

It is not thaaat diferent from 4.3. Google experience launcher is nice and the device is a lot faster(but I don´t know if it is because of 4.4 or because I formated the device during the process), but most of thing didn't change at all

Cool stuff. I might pull it my OG droid and see what can be done with that. Im now estatic with my new nexus 5. What a few years of tech will do.

lol isn't it funny that when the Nexus One came out 3.7 with 480 by 800 was considered to be a huge display and high resolution? Same with the OG Droid, now we get 5-6 inch display's at 1080p. Tech has advanced so quickly for cell phones.

This is great. It points to the fact that I should buy a device with killer specs & with killer battery and then I can use it for more than 4-5 years also. Dont need to waste money every 1.5 years to upgrade. All thanks to XDA & cynogenmods... Thankks all
