Just doing some thinking out loud here since there is a wider variety of device users here that has perhaps gone through the same thing and could have possibly become bored by an ecosystem. A bit of a back story, I have been an Android user since the HTC G1, before that, a black berry user (remember trackballs? LOL), I have gone through several, probably too many android devices and yet I keep buying more, either due to accidents or them not meeting my needs or wants or perhaps it is just me becoming bored with them. Of the top of my head I have had: G1 Droid (original slider), almost got the eris but wanted that physical keyboard DroidX, probably the best phone I have ever had Galaxy Nexus, probably one of the worst devices ever (CDMA) Galaxy SIII (was great at the time) Note II, probably what caused me to quit throwing roms on my devices Nexus 4, never used, just passed it on to my sister. Nexus 5, dropped cracked the screen, it still works but looking to replace it Nexus 7 wifi, 2012, gave up the ghost, just died Nexus 7 hspa, defective, but was unable to make the RMA in time so stuck with it until I dropped it one night on my table, shattering the screen Galaxy note 10.1. An okay device, too big, don't use most of the features like most other samsung devices I just received a new 2013 nexus 7 WIFI (Oreo model) and was playing with it this morning and was frustrated to find that google currents is so laggy on the device it is almost unusable. Choppy sputtering scrolling nearly freezing at times, but yet runs fine on other devices (yes, it is running 4.4.2 as is my Nexus 5, which it runs smooth on), so I am already seeing some inconsistencies across devices. Currents even runs better on my first gen iPad mini in relation to the N7. My sis has gone through several android devices too, thunderbolt, bionic an SIII and now using a Nexus 4 comfortably. My mom has a small stack of electronics too, She ended up with my SIII after her note 1 did not work for her. She does want a nexus 5, but for now, her SIII is working. She has a note 8 also that she actually likes. So I was sitting here thinking, perhaps it is time for a shift. I love android, I love being able to obtain root, but more and more that is going the way of the dodo. I keep getting new android devices when I can when other devices don't live up to my expectations or I find something about them I don't like. Ironically, I am unable to find a reason to upgrade the iPad mini I have sitting next to me mostly because of the price and the inability to save images from the web that are linked, but its still a decent device. A 15" i7 MBP is my main computer. An iphone is pretty much OUT because of the large sizes of phones I have been using and its a little too restrictive for my tastes. It does seem a new android device comes out, I get my hands on it and its almost like, meh. Then the lack of updates. My note II is due for the 4.3 update but I probably will not install it because it will break root, probably for good. So, perhaps I should try a different tangent. I did look at that latest windows phone, the 1520, looks like a monster, but I cannot seem to get into windows 8. I have a Dell Venue 8 pro that was pretty much an experiment as well as a low in i3 windows 8.1 machine that I bought to install linux on but secure boot seen to that not happening. But windows 8 looks to be more for touch screens anyway with the metro. Launching IE from metro appears to give me a different version of explorer then launching from the desktop. Perhaps its the same but run in a different environment. Or perhaps they are just separate environments. Not sure. Anyway, I am rambling. Perhaps it is just an over saturation of android devices.
