Been a long time BB user, changed to CM6 rc2 for a bit and hated it, went back to BB and thought I would never try anything else. Saw some discussions on the BB forums about Sapphire being built from source and it got me thinking. Planted a seed I should say. Finally yesterday I made the plunge and installed Sapphire 1.0 with the 928 theme on top and I have to say, I'm a changed man! My phone has never been so fun to use or so stable or smooth as I've seen it now. I'm VERY impressed. Battery life is good, phone is cool (using ULV 1.0 kernal), responsive, memory management is very good. I'm just content, I have NO complaints at all.
Before I was looking forward to my next droid phone, was considering paying full price for one actually without upgrade pricing. My Droid 1 was ok, it did the job, but didn't generate much excitement for me anymore. Until Sapphire. It's been reborn in my mind and I'm perfectly ok with waiting into next year until my upgrade is up. Keep up the good work!
