How long have you been using your current daily use smartphone? What model is it? How did you manage to keep it going? What repairs did it need? Boosts appreciated!


@rra using a moto g5 plus, have had it since may 2017. I instantly put on a custom rom, can't remeber what the first one was, but I have used lineage os for a long while and am now on Arrow OS which has an android 11 build for this phone. Haven't needed to do any repairs, battery is holing up very well, I often need to clean out the micro USB with needle tweasers, only few USB cables will actually reliably charge the phone.
