    Well said. I just might do that.

    For this very reason, I bought a Key2. my pixel 2 XL rocks but I've set it up just like my S7 before it. nothing is new apart from the much better camera. The Key2 is so different to use I find I'm smiling a lot while playing with it.

    4 posts, 4 sets of words, all saying the same thing - we are OLD! -
    All you young kids, and you're bored? I maxed out on a Note 3, trying every ROM that came out, finally rooting when George came out with Towel Root (after Samsung killed the de La Vega root exploit).

    But then I wanted fingerprint protection, so I opted for a Pixel 2. And the first thing I did was root it with Magisk. Now I'm waiting for Xposed 28, so I can run a few Xposed modules. (Magisk Charging Switch is also a great idea to keep from boiling batteries.)

    And I haven't finished looking through the list yet.

    (Oh, you want old? Try 76. And I regularly talk to people older than I am who play with computers to the point that the computers cry. My desktop is triple-booted - Windows/Linux/Android. Who do you think invented most of this stuff? 20-year-olds? We were posting things like this before the internet was open to the public - both on ARPANet and dialup bulletin boards.)

    And the next time something exciting comes out, I'll probably try it too. (Security updates? It;s easier to download the whole factory ROM and flash it without wiping userdata. But no one's come up with an exciting ROM for the P2.)

    Well I'm back in this thread to say that the thrill is somewhat back for me. After watching reviews on YouTube I ended up buying a Huawei P20 Pro in the twilight colour. To me it's the only phone of 2018 that really pushes the camera tech and has unique styling (at least with colour).

    As my avatar suggests, my favourite phone of all time was the Nokia Lumia 1020. Let's see if Huawei's 40mp camera phone can impress me as much as my Lumia 1020 did.

    I am bored with phones as well, I think the technology has peaked and the benefit of upgrading every year has disappeared other than having a fresh battery in a new phone. Im looking at the pixel 2 just to have an extra phone. Ive currently have gone through the S9 and the iphone 8...boring, but they do what they do well

    Good reply Gary, I love my tech stuff but you can only take it so far. I usually buy a couple of books per month from Amazon and reading them is a great distraction away from trying to find new things to do with my phone.

    I was seriously excited about my P2XL and still am all those months later. I was excited when my husband needed a new phone and I got him a P2 XL. I set it up for him and it was almost as exciting as if it were my own phone. i love a new phone.
    Did the same for my Missus too Kirstein, it gave me a great buzz

    So glad you are loving your Pixel 2! Did you get the smaller version or the 2 XL?

    Just popping in over here as I'm looking at trading my S9 Plus for a Pixel 2 XL. I have the Note 9 and my S9 Plus is collecting dust so I figure lets try some other phones and the Pixel I have always wanted to try.

    Even now it's a great choice

    In just 19 days the Pixel 3 XL will be introduced and you could pre-order it.
