Somewhere along the way, we started to grow apart. You slowly became less and less responsive to my needs, you'd ignore my touch and sometimes freeze me out entirely. I thought that if I held your power button until you fell asleep, let you rest until the morning, you might forgive whatever I did to upset you. Once I even factory reset our relationship and tried to start over with a clean slate. But no matter how many times I tried to rebuild our relationship, no matter how well we got along for the few weeks after resets, you'd invariably shut me out again.
For the longest time, I stood by you, despite your increasingly cold demeanor. But it's time to move on. For both our sakes. You see, I've met something new. It's a Nexus, like you, just... a bit smaller and faster. Look, don't take your frustrations out on the 6P. It isn't as endowed as you are in the screen department, but with a fingerprint scanner, faster processor, better memory and cellular call capabilities, it does things I never imagined a device could do. That's not your fault; you're beautiful just the way you are.
I hate to use the cliche of "it's not you, it's me," but this time it's true. I've discovered there are things I want from my mobile device that you simply can't provide. And it's not like we're never going to see each other again -- you'll still live in my computer bag, and I promise, every time I fly, you'll be the one I download movies onto to watch during the flight. So please, if you ever loved me as much as I loved you, just try to be happy for me. I will always remember you as you were.
