I'm using several applications to keep an eye on apps and temperatures. My battery life is averaging about 20 hours. I know guys are happy running their CPU's hot, but I've had enough experiences with overlocking on my home PC to learn that any increase in temperature for prolonged periods can decrease the life of your hardware.
That being said, I'm REALLY thinking about switching from Cyanogen to the new BB since I hear it's so fast, but I'm being told to no longer use app managers and SetCPU. That's a bit odd to hear, and without knowing what the ROM is doing to my hardware (not as concerned with the app side), I'm a bit unnerved at the idea of coming over and losing the tight control over CPU activity that I currently have.
All I really want to know is what is the methodology behind BB's CPU and App management? Can we know some basic details? I have my failsafe set to turn on at a measly 106degF because there's simply no need to run any hotter than that - ever. It would be nice to know what BB's failsafe is just so I know. Summer is almost here, and environmental temperatures are going to play a roll in our overclocking habits, whether we like it or not.
With complaints in the main thread about temperatures and battery life alongside compliments on how AMAZINGLY snappy the new ROM is, I can't help but think it could tax my phone more than I'd prefer. But I certainly don't know that without asking. This is the first ROM I've seen that totes CPU self-management and will actually DISABLE SetCPU because of it. That's a pretty sweet step! It would be great to learn more!
If this has all been posted somewhere else, my apologies. I didn't see it in the main thread.
