My trio of Nexus phones accompanied my girlfriend and I to Barcelona in the spring of 2012 — the Nexus One in her back pocket, the Nexus S in mine and the Galaxy Nexus tucked away in the hotel safe.
I’ve pretty much resigned myself to be a Nexus user — not only are the devices sold unlocked, but they’re easy to root and have the widest available selection of custom ROMs.
It was all very comforting, at first. I spent an evening getting everything on the phone organized into folders, as I had done with Nokias of days gone by.
Though S60 was a significant downgrade from Android, my modern-ish E73 had many of Symbian’s best qualities from days gone by.
