Samsung Galaxy Gio....Ugh dont even get me started... Slow, laggy and sluggish device. Horrible battery life and a storage so small that it can only hold about 5-6 apps. This was my first introduction to Android, but luckily my next android was a Samsung Galaxy S2 so yeah... That S2 luckily changed my opinion on Android in a positive way.

Had a galaxy nexus and absolutely loved it. Then broke it and got a htc wildfire for cheap so I could save up for a good one, and im so glad that i only had it for 2 months, worst piece of **** ive ever used

Non-LTE LG Power (equivalent of the non-LTE Leon)

The specs are good for a budget phone, but like the phone it is based on, the LG G2, it has issues with touchscreen "deadzones" or slow responses to touch input at times.

Also, while I can root it, there can never be a custom recovery for this device because it has no download mode, only factory reboot/reset. There has also been no updates from either LG or the phone carrier outside of a security update to the default messaging app against Heartbleed/Stagefright, so I am stuck on 5.0.1 of Android.

Other than these issues, the phone performs well for what it has in it. I am currently saving up to buy a Nexus device on Swappa, and think I will stick with the Nexus line from here on out because while they have issues here and there, they get regular updates.

Edit: Also, every Samsung phone I've ever used was trash due to various things adding up to make their devices unpalatable, flagship or not, so those are on my personal do not buy list.

HTC Thunderbolt. Verizon's first LTE device. Man, that thing was a boat, battery life none existent.

Agreed. Mine still runs like a champ. Bought the extended battery as soon as I ordered it. The regular battery barely had much juice to keep it going

Nexus 6 running SSHD or Cataclysm

It's not my own per se, but my parents thought getting a "free" LG G Pad F7.0 LK430 for my little brother was a great idea.

4 GB of internal NAND. 1 GB of RAM. Android 5.0 with the ugliest skin I've ever seen.

Sounds like a recipe for disaster, right? Well, guess what, you're entirely correct! I've never seen an Android device force-close the SETTINGS MENU constantly and reload the launcher every time it's pulled up!

What that device needs more than anything is an AOSP Marshmallow custom ROM for the SD card integration, at least if it can still run on 1 GB of RAM comfortably.

If that's the kind of user experience someone gets on their first Android tablet, no wonder they're inclined to think Android tablets as a whole suck! Can't believe LG and Sprint thought that was an acceptable device to sell to anyone as it is.

Frankly speaking, I had a worst experience with Samsung galaxy s duos. Actually, I was facing battery problem every now & then. Replaced battery with new one, then to it got many other reason to kill my battery for no reason.

My current phone, htc 626s, hard to root and when i finally did root and install custom recovery, I find out there wasn't any custom roms.
