Hi to all,
I am using HD2 for about 3 years, and during this time thanks to the XDA community I was able to experience on it Windows Mobile 6.5, Windows Phone 7, Android 2.4, Adnoird 4.0.4 and Android 4.1.2. With the last two, I grow very attached to the NexusHD2 ROMs. Moving to the Native SD has improved the performance substantially in the last months.

After all this time, these ROMs helped me reinvent and use my device in many new ways, unavailable to WinMo 6.5 at the time.

What I want to ask you is which device do you think will be worthy successor of this marvelous device?

After the CES 2013, and my preference to metal casing and clean shapes, Iím looking forward to Lenovo K900, whit itís 5.5Ē full HD display, 2 gigs of RAM, 13MP camera, and beefy Intel CPU, as possible candidate. What I donít like is the customizations applied to the OS by Lenovo. Do you think there is a chance for Nexus port on this device.

As alternative I perceive the Nexus4 but despite itís attractive price, and compared to the K900 hardware, it is more like 2nd best from my prospective. But the option to get the latest Android directly from Google is strengthening the offer.

Probably you have heard the rumors about the upcoming Android 5.0 premier.

Iím not planning to retire my HD2 yet, but with the latest Hardware offering on the market it is hard not to think about it.

Could you share your opinion on the topic?

a worthy successor must be able to do everything his predecessor could and better. if the google nexus is the worthy successor we can say goodbye to SD development.

There is no worthy successor and there likely will never be a successor to the HD2. There will probably never be another phone that can run WM6, Android, WP7 and all the other OSs that are out there for the HD2. Just look at HTC now and their locked bootloader crap. Hell, as far as I know, the One X still doesn't have S-OFF.

Your right in every way.
That phone is just legend, and legends does not have successors

I must agree. From what I've been able to read up on, the Note II is definitely a capable competitor.

I came from an HD2 to the Samsung Galaxy Note II. I can tell you that it's a terrific phone.

As far as the aesthetics go, I think the newly announced HTC One is potentially a true successor to our beloved HD2.
See e.g., http://www.theverge.com/2013/2/19/40...u-need-to-know

The only question is: Will it be as hackable?
