    Wow looks nice, I wonder how it was accomplished. Nexus are quality devices.

    If you are at all a dev, you will see how fake this is. Watch again and tell me how many flaws in this there are. And really, really look at the phone, it is not a Nexus. Everyone gets their 15 seconds and for this dude this was it, too bad nothing was accomplished.

    Even by erasing everything on the device and starting from scratch, oh wait, no way to accomplish that yet. Someone prove me wrong, and I will never say another word about it. UNLESS this dude actually took apart a Lumia and Nexus and swapped parts.... Doubtful.

    I can't wait for the day when you can erase a phone and load a new OS from scratch...

    CyanogenMod | Android Community Operating System

    Windows 10 Mobile ROM is now available for the Xiaomi Mi 4, but there's a caveat | Windows Central

    lets go the other way now..

    I didn't care for the Galaxy Nexus, but my LG Nexi have been decent devices.

    The phone is in Chinese. Coming from China, they can make this happen on an iPhone or my niece's toy phone easy.

    The app switcher looked very odd to me made me wonder if it may be a skin on Android, they only went into a couple of apps which could have been side loaded.

    Actually, that's how the app switcher looks on a large screen phone, or with the "Size of text, apps, and items on this display" (under the display settings) gets increased. Both my 950 XL and 920 has it doing that.

    Why would you ruin a perfectly good phone? Just to prove you can do something? This is like those drop test youtube videos.

    Never seen/used any of the XL model phones. I pretty much stick to screens with a 720p resolution or lower, too many online videos look terrible in anything over 720p resolution especially the older stuff converted from old TV shows. :)

    LOL You ever have a Nexus? If it's out there they will load it, or try to.

    On my Nexus 4, I tried 3 alternate OS choices, Ubuntu Touch, Firefox OS and Jolla Sailfish. If you like tinkering with mobile there is a whole Nexus > ??? world out there.

    It doesn't "ruin" anything. The Nexus line is famous for flashability and easy recovery to stock. Great fun and great learning opportunities.

    I like to test some Linux distros in my PC that originally came with Windows... i don't see how you can ruin your device if the other OS just works.

    No worries. :D

    At least lower the "Size of text, apps, and items on this display" under the Display settings and check it out, you might enjoy it. You also get 5 action buttons, instead of 4.

    should have included some notice of sarcasm in my post. Thanks for the advice though!
