The Moto X 2013, from back when it was small and didn’t look like all the other Moto phones.

I want a revised version of the N900 or 920. Those were eye-catching phones, and the 920 had OIS, a camera button and get this, a headphone jack.

Alongside NFC, wireless charging, and an indestructible frame, it felt and looked premium in polycarbonate. In 2012.

That version of the Android home screen in that thumbnail was so pretty. I love the look now but Jellybean will always have a special place in my heart. ?

I loved the original moto Droid. Maybe because it was my first smartphone, learned how to root and rom with that phone, but I really loved that phone

No mention of the Xperia play? Lost out on that opportunity.

I loved the Nexus 5 and 7. Both simple devices that were smooth, run pure Android and complimented eachother well. My favourite era of Android and my two favourite Android devices.

Surprised that HTC wasn’t on that list anywhere! I’d love for the One X to be remade, I really liked HTC’s poly-carbonate phones and they were mostly indestructible. The current trend of glass-backed phones does nothing for me Honestly it’s the perfect candidate to be remade with it’s [existing design. ]) The front camera and ear piece are already in the poly-carbonate frame, you just need to replace the screen to a full view display to match current phones, balance the top and bottom of the frame with dual speakers and what’s not to like? Just get rid of that… Read more »

How about a decent basic non-camera smart phone.

For some of us who need it for work purposes etc. its just so so hard to find an entry level and still decent smart phone without a camera module.

The cheapo non-camera phones I’ve used for work are all running on Android 4.0 hahahah. Oh well.

A proper and updated Nexus 5 and Nexus 6 would be monster phones in 2018. Give us similar outside hardware with updated internals and camera, I’d pay for those. The Nexus 5X and 6P failed miserably at recapturing the greatness of those two devices.

Nexus 4 was a bad phone tbh. Terrible camera and battery life. Even for that time.
No LTE.
Nexus 6 was a bad phone too.
Nexus 5 was good.

Oddball phone but…give me an HTC Touch Pro2 with capacitive touch and modern internals. That phone was fucking awesome, and it could run Android, albeit poorly. The keyboard on it was second to none, it felt so amazingly good to type on and I used to pound out messages on it ridiculously well. Up yours, autocorrect. I miss phones with keyboards. Mostly because it feels like every single keyboard I try on my Note8 just screws up somehow. Samsung Keyboard is TOO aggressive and doesn’t learn words, GBoard is not agressive enough and misses stupid typos, and Swiftkey learns too… Read more »

Durability – Had my Galaxy S5 for two years then the screen stopped working.
Switched to Xiaomi RN3P after 1.5 years looks like crap everything is broken buttons are not working screen is broken half screen is black, 3.5mm stops working, the back shell is falling apart. shell around the volume button is bent.

Now I’m back to the S5, the screen works again and it looks the same as the day I bought it, battery life is even better than the Xiaomi.

They mentioned the razr at the end, and had a picture of the razr hd. My personal opinion is that the hd Maxx was one of the best Android phones at the time and for a few years after. What really screwed it was being a Verizon exclusive.

And I think Moto should remake the razr again, but actually make a nostalgic flip phone, running something like a modified Android Wear os for a balance of capability and efficiency.

Moto Q will always have a soft place on my heart. Simple form factor and no nonsense design. It was meant for work to get done.

But Windows Mobile = meh

I had an atrix. That phone was completely badass at the time. Fingerprint reader, lightning speed with a gig of RAM and a 1ghz processor, and the TV dock and laptop dock were very cool. When I think back to that phone it makes me sad how copycat and bland today’s flagship smartphone market is.

I wish Nokia would release an updated version of the [Nokia N900](https://gsmarena.com/nokia_n900-2917.php). Loved the fact that I could do damn near anything on that phone without having to go through all this bootloader unlocking crap.

I have had an HTC Desire Z as my first Android experience.

Needless to say, that keyboard was hands down the fastest way I’ve ever typed on a phone, as I’m fiddling around with Gboard on my S8. It had crappy hardware (even in the time period), sure, but it’s so sad that the physical keyboard is dead because it was *so good*. It doesn’t make sense to have one in the era of *thinner is better*, and not nearly enough people would want to have one to make it interesting to build, but still… One keeps hoping for a revival…

Another Xperia Play! With today’s hardware, you’d have one hell of a gaming device. Plus PS4 streaming with built in controls.

To this day, if the Nexus 6 was released with more modern specs, a fingerprint sensor and a better camera, I’d buy it day one

I would also add Moto G first gen. It was such a great phone for the price and it’s still really usable nowadays despite of its poor camera. Fast updates, low price, good performance… It was the mid-range revolution!

I’d go with a rather obvious choice of HTC One M7, if they release the look again but say with updated specs, I’d seriously consider getting one.

Loved Nokia pre Microsoft era. They would throw out all kinds of designs for everyone. I miss phone makers taking risks with design. Nowadays everything is just a variation of the iPhone.

I love how the Lumia looks. I got the Xiaomi Mi3 because of it. I wish there were an updated version of it with minimal bezels.

Talk about a comment section that makes a guy feel old. Anyways, one interesting thing to note is that while Android was new and all the hype (except for that fruit phone) it could barely to video out by turning of the phone display. While in contrast the Symbian based Nokia phones could be paired up with a bluetooth keyboard and mouse, and a nearby TV, to act as a (barebones) desktop computer. It is one of those things that makes a guy feel that smartphone development was set back by a decade the day Jobs walked up on stage… Read more »

Razr 3 was kindof my dream phone back then. Couldn’t own one though, was a kid. But that phone. That is where the phone aficionado in me was born.

While I liked aluminum body on Nokia N8 and E7, I really really loved the Nokia N9. It’s unique (hardware and software that complements the design), durable, and made plastic material (or polycarbonate) looked great. Great details, like the screen’s black level so deep, it’s almost hard to distinguish the screen from the bezels (which almost none of the recent phones can do). The speaker’s sound can’t be muffled even if you cover it. I really missed the phone and it’s funny how none of the new phones have such beautiful design that is durable (though I understand that design… Read more »
