So I just recently grabbed a Samsung Galaxy Nexus, GSM version of course, and I was wondering if anyone else is still rocking this device. Development seems hot still, Nougat roms, and a rumored and confirmed 22.214.171.124 Sailfish OS build (go figure Samuelgames!). What roms are you guys running? any hardware modifications? How is your 7 year old phone holding up? I can't wait to look at that old 2011 Super AMOLED display, god damn do i miss those yellow tinted colors, so easy on the eyes. My Nexus 5 is like looking into another world and my cave man brain doesn't know how to cope.
The performance of these phones is more or less equivalent to the Razr M, dual core, 1 GB. These phone have two types of ROMs/Kernels - the legacy ones without CMA with give roughly 600-700 MB of usable RAM and the new CMA enabled ROMs which give 900+ MB of usable RAM.
Most of the development work is being done on the CMA enabled Android 4.4.4 / 6 / 7.1 but IMHO anything over KK bogs down this phone as it just doesn't have the horsepower to handle that stuff. I've found KitKat to be the perfect version for this phone. Of the KitKat ROMs, we have CMA enabled Omni and Unlegacy Android but I've had stability issues with both. Currently I'm using official no-CMA Omni KK which I like very much except I have between 600 and 700 MB of usable RAM...
Why would you even want to use ICS on this phone considering KK is available although the last official release was JB 4.3
