thats the problem with most android phones that they never recieve updates frequently
only few high end are updated to the latest versions...
I bought samsung gs+ which was launched on gb and never recieved ics
but recieved unofficial cm9/10

you have to love android for its mods and that is why Google itself encourages developers to mod a device! any decent phone should last you two years and after the first year warranty feel free to mod awayt my friend :)
the gs+ was never anything above a mid-ange device and yes they receive updates slowly but thats entirely up to the manufacturer and not Google or android's fault! I sammy wishes to give the update to its low-end android phones then nobody's gonna stop them

proves that there is nothing special about android phones...
just buy a cheap but capable/well specced chines knockoff and port over all the goodies
then for less than $200 you get a more solid android phone than what most flagships offer

obvious troll is obvious.Only an idiot compares Galaxy Note 2 or HTC Butterfly with Chinese knock offs

never even mentioned any particular brand but you obviously felt threatened...
why? I dont know
my point still stands...
buy a rockchip, root it, install a capable jellybean launcher
and boom bang presto...
you have yourself a more capable android device than what most flagships offer...

Well iam not a fan of particular brand.but thats in fact an advantage of Open source.not everyone can afford Flagships.

First point, china phones do not have the same dev support as a well known flagship or regular phone.
Second, "buy a rockchip, root it, install a capable jellybean launcher" you just showed you ignorance by saying install a jellybean launcher, i believe you meant a jellybean ROM and quite frankly i highly doubt there will be one for the china phones as their dev support is quite weak, unless you believe ROMs fall from the trees.

ooooh.... I was wondering why nobody saw that...
but anyhoo... i think you only get 10 mins to edit your post or something but i said....
"this will draw out the real tech savvy people and not just the fans who use other peoples work
whatever... my point still stands
and some chines phones have some of the best dev support... have you used miui?

Also can anyone around here tell me Why didnt Lumia 800 Get windows 8?just askin
18. gazmatic posted on 20 Dec 2012, 07:15 0 1
M$ severe hardware restrictions....
lumia 800 can get the software part of windows PHONE 8 but not the hardware
what sense is there to add sd card support when the phone doenst have an sd card?
anyhoo... this is better than apples watered down ios 6 for older phones that are either stripped of features(software) or slows down the device
some android phones are still stuck on froyo!!! gingerbread is still the dominant android version...
most android devices wont ever taste jelly bean let alone key lime pie
M$ sucks with its hardware restrictions but they were trying to avoid fragmentation... and bugs... android 4.2.1 is VERRRY buggy
if you have a lumia you are actually better off than any other manufacture

like you said g2a5boe its bittersweet for me as well because this old phone is running jellybean, which is cool to see, but i dont even have that on my 2012 droid incredible 4g lol

I hear ya, Knight. Bittersweet for me for a different reason. My G2 has been stuck on Gingerbread since I got the upgrade & that's where it will forever reside. I had to get a new phone to feel that JB love. But, I am happy to see that someone got it up & running.
