One interesting thing about android Operating system is that fact that it is very much easy to customize than any other mobile OS. Apart from the fact that devices from big brands are considered as more durable and fashionable, techie guys tend to go for the big brand phones because their custom roms are quite easy to find online.
I remember when I was using the Sony Xperia X10i (years back), I could easily source for custom roms online and choose to install any one that catches my fantasy. I recall changing the custom Rom on that phone more than once. It was really interesting. Honestly!
