    Later models (the Pre for example) adopted capacitive touchscreens.
    Which still had that sweet, sweet slide out full portrait hardware keyboard *sigh* I sorely miss my Pre/Pre3. Used the Pre3 as long as I could, then finally had to go Android via Cyanogenmod/LineageOS.

      Ok that's quite a lot. I had no idea that the community contributions can be so huge. 10000 hours is like 5 years of full time paid work on the kernel code.

        Is LineageOS is still top? I mean if you actually want to be able to move around the world and use Uber, WhatsApp, and other necessities (for most of us)?
