-Quick note, if you want to skim over this, read the text in red-
Now I don't mean to rant, but I'm getting sick of the multiple threads about which ROM is better. Many people will suggest their own rom, and maybe others too. However, each ROM is different in its own way, (even if its build off CM :P) and the developers add in their own features.
What I'm getting at, is that the developers put in their free time to make ROMS for us to try, and only asking for donations. Instead of asking which ones are better, you should DIVE IN and try them out yourself! You have nothing to lose, but everything to gain! (quote from Billy Mays )
Another reason why comparing ROMs could be potentially wrong is that many people may say that "so and so rom" has amazing battery life! Well what does that mean exactly? Does it mean it has better battery life than other ROMS? Or does it just mean that it has just as much battery life as the other kernels out there?
And one last thing. People can say "I had terrible battery life with X rom, but I got GREAT battery life with Y rom!" Well listen here, most battery problems and other issues are the USER'S ERROR!!! I can not stress enough how difficult it is to compare battery life and keeping your battery stats in check! What makes the battery life better after you wipe? The battery stats get wiped clean along with everything else, and not everyone pays attention to that important fact!
Alright, few things to let you know before you leave, these might help you
- When flashing a new ROM, it is just like wiping battery stats. ALWAYS WIPE AT 100%, DON'T reboot your phone, follow the normal battery stats procedure! Use your phone normally until it gets low, around 5%, and then let it charge on its own, DON'T TOUCH IT (letting it die is bad for your battery, fyi)
- Always use Google to look for your answers first. Even if you don't find the answers with Google, you may find threads already asking the same question. They may contain the answer you are looking for, so you don't need to ask again and aggravate the community.
