show me one device where jb / ics works better than gb and i'll buy you a new car
Nexus 4, you can keep the car

It worked just fine but it is older, clunkier and not as well developed as the player today. Tech moves forward, so should we.

Nuff said :idea:

I disagree with this sentiment. What makes hacking and having full control worthwhile is seeing how much more you can squeeze out of the things you already have instead of simply throwing money around. It makes you more aware of the limitations of what you have as well as knowing what our phones excel at. Play to those strengths and you can have a legacy as long as the HTC HD2.

exactly my point, you can't argue that something runs jb better if you never ran gb on it

You can't argue at all in the nexus 4's case, same with the Gnex. There was alot of under the hood coding changes with regards to multicore devices after ICS. Comparing for comparison s sake can only be done from Nexus S to Nexus S

you could basically try any device on the market with support for gb and ics / jb and have the exact same result
i'm not saying ics / jb are bad, i'm saying gb is more efficient

Yeah. It's an opinion and it will differ from person to person. Some people will say windows xp was/is more efficient than windows 7. Again it's an opinion. Technical reality could be different.

on that subject, in win 7 i could barely run 2 instances of the same game and still noticesome lag, on xp i could run 4 instances and still no lag
but it really depends on what you use it for, i'm pretty sure windows 7 does some things better ... maybe, but for what i actually needed from an os, xp worked better
but that's slightly off topic

Default Sorry for my english, but I must say one thing!!

WOW! i'm going to do a new thread like this, but you're faster than me!!

What about my NS experience?

Early, I was attracted by the upgrade, I wanted only upgrade, new Android version, i wanted only the newer version! But...
... i tried every (+ - ) possibile JB (4.1 or 4.2) but i was never satisfacted by that. The system was often laggy and choppy, with all the rom, also with tweaks and OC. For a long time I used HellyBean or Rasbeanjelly (with DevilKernel o Marmite) but sometimes the system crashed,other times for example, when I opened the messages app, contacts numbers not load immediately and the keyboard did not fit on the screen at once. and this made me nervous!!!

So, after reading a post by thalamus, I wondered if go back to gingerbread would be a good idea.
... Now i'm using CM7.2 , with Franco's Kernel --> the results? --> The phone boot in few seconds ( 10-15 seconds!!), i can OC (and live OC) until 1300mhz (with JB it freezed at 1100mhz), the phone is very very smooth (smoother than first!) and incredibly stable. And with some themes everythings is Holo style. A good launcher instead of Nova? Smart Launcher (only 7mb of ram on 2mb of storage!!!)... and with GB Chainfire3d is good for gaming!

Nexus S is born with Gingerbread, and probably is better with Gingerbread too.. at least for me

Yes, i really love my phone now, and probably i will never return to the run for the latest upgrade.
