great discussions about a great device. speculation is great but it only gets you so far. this thread actually discusses what people love and hate about the device among many, many, many other things.

ICS Color Code

Because every true Android fan customizes their phone and in order to make it match perfectly you need the ICS blue color code. I am using it and its the right color...never has a first post been so useful to me that it alone validated a bookmark in my browser. Then take a look at the second post and be blown away. two posts later and the thread is finished. Just 4 posts of which the first two nearly drown every other post in the forums in jealousy for its awesomeness!

Probably the first guide on how to root, this was the basic thread used for any HTC Dream user back in the day. Going back to the roots (no pun intended). Development from here just progressed into what Android is today. This is why it is my favorite thread.

***Official HTC Incredible Thread***

This thread spanned months of anticipation, rumors, leaks, and excitement over what turned out to be an amazing phone. Also, it really fostered a sense of community here on AF. Finally, going back and looking at this has made me miss all the "insider" leaks which came about during the wait, since we really aren't seeing those anymore with the heightened security and secrecy.

Oh the good ol' days.

Cases!

Whats the first thing you need when a brand new phone comes out? A unique case that fits your personality of course. Unless you know where to look, the phone case market can either be filled with gems or duds. In this thread, there were new discoveries and finds almost daily of people finding new cases for this epic phone. Not only did people tell you where to find the case, they gave a little mini review. The thread got so popular that case developers joined in and gave direct feedback and support to the forum members. Never seen anything like that before.

Because of this thread I now have over a dozen cases for my Nexus! Not even google search can give you the amount of variety in cases that this thread gave.

This should be the first stop for any new Galaxy Nexus owner.

Motorola Droid- All Things Root Guide

Rooting the OG Droid - not much else needs to be said. Personally this is where it all started for me and got me totally hooked on android and phandroid. I'm sure it's the same way for a lot of other people out there. Once I started this I was totally hooked on everything Android and haven't looked back

Unlock Motorola Defy

Well, my favorite thread has nothing to do about all your fancy and expensive Galaxies and Nexuses but with the humble Motorola Defy. I remember this was the first thread I read in this forum and why I kept coming daily (and how I ended up discovering Fandroid too).
I wanted to buy that phone because my 2 previous phones died on water related accidents: One on a pool and the other one during a flood that took away a bunch of my stuff (no lives luckily); so I decided I needed a water-resistant phone and needed to know if I could unlock the phone to use it with my carrier.

So that's it. It might not be a popular thread/subject/device but it's still my favorite.

Help Root the Droid!

There are a lot of comments/threads referring to rooting so I am hesitant to add to that long list. My reason for going ahead with this submission is simply because rooting your phone for a first time user is nerve racking. You pay a lot of money for a phone that you expect great things out of. Then you hear about a process that COULD render your phone unusable, but COULD also unlock a world of added functionality. It's like that old game show "Let's Make a Deal"...dare you trade in your reasonable prize for a chance at a new car!?!?!...knowing full well that you could end up with a goat? For the risk takers out there, Android provides a cutting edge, constantly evolving realm of ROMs to flash, apps to install, and processors to overclock. For the risk averse, fortunately there is a dedicated community of users and developers willing to take the plunge, survey the new terrain, and provide you a detailed map to act as a guiding hand. Many work diligently and tirelessly to keep us abreast of this rapidly changing landscape and minimize our risk. These risks are magnified when manufacturers provide less flexibility in the form of locked bootloaders. To be told something is impossible, however, seems to only serve as motivation to a benevolent and determined android community. It truly is a community as you immediately feel connected to other users scouring the message boards for tips, advice, and a break from their normal lives. People are often supportive and reciprocation is abundant. Once helped by a member of the community you feel compelled to do the same for others as they come aboard. This thread is a testament to all of these things from the onset with one of the more notoriously difficult manufacturers (Motorola). Community members taking it upon themselves to get involved for the betterment of our user experience is one of Android's greatest assets. I owe a debt of gratitude to those who have helped pave the way for my enhanced enjoyment of this great operating system. I would like to win a bunch of stuff and continue that enjoyment. Please?

I knew nothing about Android or how cool it could be. I came to this thread and learned so much more than I imagined I would. I can't thank you guys enough for starting this and to all those that contributed. My EVO is still awesome thanks to you guys.

Default The greatest Android Forums post ever!

I know the entire thread was linked above but this post sums it up. Hope it counts. POST #88753 in Galaxy Nexus Pre-Release Speculation Thread #1776***Official Galaxy Nexus Pre-Release speculation thread**

I knew this thread was the greatest one of all time here in AF but this post from @Steven58 does a wonderful job summing up the amount of emotion, time, dedication, and pure disaster that comes from such a great thread. We can all thank Steven58 for his hard work and on becoming Moderator during this time.

This thread is also special to me because it's the most posts i've ever had in a single thread @ 78 posts.

Thanks for the contest guys!

what is rooting?

The Samsung Galaxy S which I currently own is the first smartphone I've ever had. (I don't count the Blackberry Curve that preceeded it) I was contemplating a Windows Phone but their phones were bulky and they didn't have a good history about publishing updates to their OS. My nephew owned a Google Nexus One had been rooting his and people's phones quite a bit of time. After about a year of going back and forth, worrying about "voiding my warranty" he suggested that I go to that forum and learn exactly what I'd be doing to the phone to not only educate me on exactly what I'd be doing but also the benefits of rooting my phone. It basically set me free from the chains of stock ROM's.

Full wipe. What's the big deal? Steps to take (15 mins)

I believe that this is a very useful guide for all those with newly rooted phones as this is applicable to all, not only s2 users (the steps i mean, not the shortcut code). Will also lessen the unnecessary questions filling up the discussions threads :-)

AF Treasure Trove

Because it is the current contest running right now and well it looks better to post this thread than one of my own and I couldn't really decide between the site FAQ thread, the longest thread, AFRPFG, Blame Yeahha...too many great threads I had enjoyed...

Question about new Google Play Movie app

I didn't know you could take google play movies offline. I travel a bit and this is very helpful for those long trips where data is spotty. I usually grab an sd card of movies and adapter to play on my galaxy tab 10.1. This will save me a step and make it easier for me to hit the road.

http://androidforums.com/android-applications/158265-what-tasker-profiles-everyone-using.html

This thread has been going for almost 2 years, since August 2010. It has helped me as well as many other androidforums users to automate a lot of things on their phones using one of the best and most powerful Android apps every created - Tasker.

Tasker can be quite difficult for some people to set up, but this thread is full of useful step by step tutorials for great profiles and a lot of members subscribed to it to answer questions.

The fact that this thread is still going strong for this long is proof that it is one of the best threads ever on here!!

Thunderbolt Root/Unroot Thread

Using what I found in this thread, I've rooted my Thunderbolt soon after acquiring it. That's allowed the Thunderbolt to live past its prime and is holding me over and away from the GSIII until I can pick the right phone for me. Oh, and go first 4G phone

Cool Galaxy Nexus Root Guides

Over the last few months the Galaxy Nexus root guides have been a ton of help to me and thousands of other users.

Thank you VoidedSaint and ScaryAlien for all the helpful links and post. It might not be a funny thread, but it has saved me a number of times since I love to regularly mess with my gnex.

Thanks again!

Wink Show Us Your Desire Homescreens!

Show us your Desire Homescreens...

My choice is for the EPIC Show Us Your Desire Homescreens thread.

Although these kinds of threads exist for other handsets, I feel this particular one was very special. The Desire was a truly iconic phone, with huge community support and following. With such fantastic input from the Phandroid members, this thread was transformed from a place to display your own pride and joy, into a treasure chest of helpful tips, discovery of new apps/widgets and ultimately an irreplaceable resource for making the very most of your Android phone.

AMEN to that.

lost my phone

I chose this one because it happens to some of us, where we lose our phone. But another reason why i chose it is because I live near cupertino, ca, where Iphones are a big deal and cool but i have an upgrade coming up and I am going to get the GS3 and it will be my first android phone. I am so excited and hopefully if i get enough likes and Google shows the Nexus 7 or whatever the tablet is called I could show everybody that Android phones and tablets are better than Iphones and Ipads. Everyone here thinks that Iphones are the best, but I want to show them wrong.

Best thread for discovering new apps. Just read through a few pages and find out what apps people think are the best. I've found several apps through this page!

The Official: "I'm Mad They Closed the ***Official HTC Incredible Thread*** Thread"

I wanted to pick the Official thread but this brings back almost as many good memories... There was so much frustration towards VZ people were getting crazy and Mods were having to get involved regularly and threads like this kept emerging to keep things going.
Ahh, the good ol' days

Not necessarily a favorite topic or post, but
Application Announcements - Android Forums is my favorite collection of posts.
I love browsing this section so as to get an idea of new apps in the woodworks that may be of interest to me.

This is my favorite thread in AF because I run AOKP and it's a hugely awesome and helpful resource. jbdan is a righteous dude and does an awesome job with keeping the OP up to date with new releases and themes. Any time anyone has a question the whole AOKP community on AF is there to help in a friendly and awesome way.

ultimate ascend customization guide.

This is my favorite thread, because this is the one that started it all for me and lots of others. The Huawei Ascend was in its time the most affordable Android on the market, and allowed tens of thousands of people to introduce themselves to Android. People who found the cost of smartphone ownership to be prohibitive, were finally allowed in the game. This is why this is my favorite thread. I will always have a soft spot in my heart for the Huawei Ascend.
