    I know I might get laughed at, but I love Gingerbread! Sure it doesn't have the apps, support or phone selection it used to but I love it! My daily driver is a Motorola Droid Pro, that QWERTY candy bar form factor really hasn't been duplicated on any Android platform. When I need more power, I have a T-Mobile activated Tablet.

    I have a few apps that I use on my Pro. No social media, twitter or even eBay.. Just an email account, a phone number blocking app, Silent Time, Opera Mini, Weather App and Flash Light. If you keep the workload light, battery life and processor load is no issue.

    Am I the only one who still likes the ol' timey stuff?

    I wish I had a Gingerbread phone for tinkering purposes... Too bad I was still too young back in 2011 to even own a smartphone (I was only 11 years old at the time). I have watched many 6-year old tech videos demonstrating Gingerbread in all it's former glory. I really wish it was possible to stick Android 2.3.6 on one of those cheapie low-end MT6580 phones so I could mess around and catch up on the happenings of a tech era I missed out on. Back in 2011, I didn't know Android even existed (all I knew of was HTC and their WP7 based Trophy T8686 which my father bought for work). I discovered Android when my best friend showed me his Gingerbread-powered ZTE Mimosa Mini. All thanks to his phone and Gingerbread, I got hooked on Android and eventually convinced my parents to get me a tablet, but I was too late for Gingerbread (ICS was pre-loaded on the Galaxy Tab 2 I got).
