All of us here at XDA appreciate just how far Android has come. The incredible flagships of today come packed with bleeding edge technology and are hard to complain about, but it wasn't always like this. Tell us about the worst Android phone you've ever owned, and what made it so dreadful.
Want to De-Brand Your Nexus S?
We have seen our share of great and almost unbelievable mods for our devices here at XDA. Modding the cases is always a fun thing to do, but not everyone is comfortable with sanding a $400 piece of technology, no matter how tempting the end result may be.
