As someone who has tried following one of these Owner Threads well after release, I couldn't see the value, how about device specific forums, you can subscribe to a particular forum so if you are interested in the old way, subscribing to the forum would be basically the same thing.

It'd also make finding a specific discussion that is part of the owner threads easier (I seem to recall a discussion in the S2 thread about screen locks, it'd be EASY to find the start/end of that discussion if it was a thread in a device forum, instead of having to try and find the start of the discussion, filter out all the potentially irrelevant discussions and try and find the solution X pages later).

Device forum would be a mess - there are so many devices around, almost impossible to keep up.

When the SII discussion got long I asked if we should lock the discussion and people should create threads for different topics - rooting, network configuration, etc. People jumped on me, so I just left it alone.

Mea Culpa. For the HTC One (2013). Thanks Mods for changing the title of the thread I started on the day the "1" was announced. But to be honest I believed I was following a convention that had been established going all the way back to the SGS1.

So it'll be too early to start talking about the XBox 1080?
