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Amazing how outdated it is even though it's only about 4 years old.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their main phone for more than 2 years, anyway it's even more amazing how a 2013 device like an iPhone 5c is already so outdated against other price ranged phones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.

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

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
