I'm still dreaming of a stable JB at least. :banghead:

Still love this phone. I can easily get another one but I'm too busy to start over. I'm sure my next phone would be xda friendly.

I still have my g2x in case anything new happens with development although I don't know how many devs are really left lol. The nexus 5 is an amazing device.....it would have to be something really crazy in terms of development for the g2x to make me get the dust off mine and boot it up.

It stood well the test of time. I've reclaimed the very first Android phone, myTouch 4G from my cousin. I gave him my Nexus 4.

Anyway, I compare the G2X, still solid and smooth. The myTouch is just slow painful to use. How times have changed.

The other day used G2X on skype and had multiple crashes and phone has become very sluggish at running more than 2 apps. This is on CM7. The display and colors are bright and deep black colors. In my opinion, its a great display.

My main is Nexus 5. Still my favorite phone.

- 50% of paint on metal stripe around phone is gone
- the back plastic plate that says "8M" fell off, I superglued it
- microUSB port looks scratched around the perimeter
- slot of the backplate looks uneven from billions of removals

will be 3 years this summer, still refusing to get rid of it. I will use till it vomits in my face.

Nice! Almost 3 years for me also. Don't feel the need to spend hundreds of dollars on a new phone when this does what I need it to do. When it dies is when I get a new one lok

You can always spend $10+ on eBay for backplate and case replacements

naah. I love this feeling - at school, I've always had the crappiest calculator, the cheapest books in terrible condition I can find with human genitals drawn on them, and getting all the scholarships and research grants. I love this way of being. I love how everyone gets their new and shiny nexus and apple, and thinking now they are ready to make some good in their lives. Your belongings have nothing to do with it.

+1. Absolutely right!

Agreed, belongings have nothing to do with the person you are, but that doesn't mean you should limit yourself to your material belongings when it truly serves no benefit upon doing so. With that said, I f***ing love my brand new Nexus 5 =)

Still have mine, been my daily for three years now. Running my own little cooked up version of a stripped down CM7.2 for about a year with no issues.

It does what I need it to do as a phone so I have no reason to shell out some cash to upgrade and I will probably have it until it dies on me.
