    Most things seem older than they actually are to me. This seems like it’s been longer. I can’t believe it’s was less than 15 years ago when I was first playing with custom roms and overclocking my android phone.

      My first smartphone was the Motorola Droid 2 and it could easily be over clocked from 600 MHz to 1200 MHz. The dynamic overclocking even helped the battery life. I miss the keyboard, it was great for playing old video games on emulators.

        My first was a Samsung Moment slider phone. I still miss having a real keyboard.

        It was an 800mhz arm11 chip. I think I was stable at 1100, but can’t remember for certain anymore.

        I know I could do a lot of custom charge settings and stop it from charging at whatever percentage I wanted it to stop at. Something you STILL can’t do on most phones, but should be able to. A lot of phones now at least give you an option to stop at around 85% by enabling “battery saver”, but what if I want it to stop at 90% instead?

        You mean headache phones? I never messed with using the 3d on my new 3dsxl, either.

    Those early smartphone designs were really something else. I think they were trying to make it look like space ship controls, but it just ended up looking like a car stereo.

      In case of Samsung it was just their design language carrying over from their slide phones.

    I had that phone, and I loved it. I’ve probably still got it in the cupboard somewhere, along with the original Note.

    The mix of physical buttons and touch screen is something I really miss.
