    As I'm looking at the tips/layout for the newly installed Oreo on my Note 8, I started remembering past updates and the excitement of their release.
    Then I remembered getting my first Android phone and thought how stupid the names sounded..
    Operating systems named after foods? Desserts?
    It has certainly came a long way. My Note 8 is blazing fast now with the latest Oreo update. I do remember how slow my Android was compared to Apple's in the earlier versions and slower hardware days.
    But those days are gone now.
    Although I can't remember the exact phone, it was in 2009, Eclair. 10 versions ago.
    What was yours?

    My first Android device came preinstalled with 4.0 ICS, so I haven't really been the oldest Android user, but I have been using Android ever since

    Mine was Android 1.6 Donut on the then beautiful and powerful Sony Ericsson Xperia X10i.

    That phone got 2 major updates; it jumped to 2.1 Eclair and then it skipped 2.2 FroYo and went straight to 2.3.3 Gingerbread.

    I to am now on a Galaxy Note8, and cannot believe how far this OS has come. I remember updating my Galaxy S2 to the much hyped Android Ice Cream Sandwich, that was a major turning point for this OS.

    2.3.4 Gingerbread. Sony Xperia Pro. I feel there hasn't been much massive advancements since lollipop though. I'm still on 6.0 it's good enough for me.

    Lollipop set the tone for the current state of the Android OS, after 4.0 ICS, Lollipop was the next major OS overhaul. The next overhaul should come in the next 2years or so, for now what we are seeing is newer versions of Lollipop basically.

    My first Android was an LG Optimus V with Froyo. That phone is a legend! Last I checked (maybe a few months ago), devs are still working on it.

    I had the S version. I used it until Sprint kicked me off for using too much data on their unlimited plan. Go figure.

    That HTC Hero is the OG Android Powerhouse. That was the first Android I remember that truly gave me hope for this OS.

    First Android phone was the Nexus One. I think I still have it around somewhere, although it doesn't work. The flash memory is toast after all the ROMs I was constantly loading.

    Coming from the iPhone 4, I made the switch with the LG Optimus G. Next came the Nexus 5 which is where I fell in love with Android and haven't looked back.
