Just grabbed these little treats:
CS968 (RK3188) Quad Core Google Android 4.2 OS Cortex-A9 1.6GHz Mini TV BOX
G910 Wireless Bluetooth Gamepad
Measy RC11 Android Monitor Wireless Keyboard Air Mouse Remote Controller With Gyroscope

All from Geekbuying, so I could bundle them all together in the same shipment... An entire android setup that I can stream videos or movies online via XBMC with, Play music and vids off my external HDD on, Use most emulators on (Up to PSX and N64)...
All for under $150 for the lot. I'm pleased right now. Can't wait for it to arrive so I can start tinkering :D

Haven't visited this thread in a long time. Anyway, good news. I just installed Cm11 android kitiat 4.4.2 on my Htc One and it is lookin good tongue.gif keep in mind this is one of their nightlies so its expected to have issues.

Pro's:
-Everything is faster. Opening apps, loading pictures, opening web pages, viewing stuff, downloading, basically everything apart from the boot up.
-smooth, not as much hiccups as old CM's.
-much better battery life.
-super-cool lock animation.
-customization
-Emojis!!!!!!
-much, much better multitasking. Doesnt lag anymore when im downloading something and using another app.

Con's:
-Still not suitable as a 'daily driver'
-random restarts (mostly when the phone freezes)
-beats audio is gone, which means the speakers sound like crap
-still some freezes, hiccups.
-hard to install for beginners

And thats about it biggrin.gif

I installed CM11 on my HTC One as well. Agreed, the speakers sound like butt now. Once in a while, I get sound out of just one. I do use it as a daily driver. The random restarts don't happen often enough to bother me. Looking forward to the final version, whenever that shows up.

hey androids!

 

long-time android user here. have owned a number of different phones over the years. currently using (and loving) the LG G2 with my grandfathered data plan! i only wish it had aosp kitkat...

 

i've read that people here have mixed opinions on the sound quality of the G2, but from my uncritical listening (some 24/96 files i have floating around) it seemed to sound perfectly fine. loving the battery life, screen size, and OIS camera, too.

That phony seems to be really liked on the reviews I've read. Really love my HTC One with CM11, but I'm oddly drawn to the Moto X with its "always listening" feature.

Thread Starter 

The other nice thing about the X would be that it seems Motorola (being owned by Google and all) will continue to give it updates, and update it faster than other manufacturers.

I went to Best Buy the other day and played around with the Nexus 5. Maybe it's because I have a custom ROM and ART on my Nexus 4 (as well as .5x animations) but the Nexus 5 didn't really feel all that much faster than my phone. Plus, it looks like someone was able to tear part of the back off as well... :l

I was honestly most impressed with the LG G2 and how close the screen was to the edges of the device.

Could Samsung Galaxy Gear function without Galaxy Note 3 ?  It would be nice to use it as a watch and camera.

I don't think the battery life is very good :(

Yeah apparently one day only, and I saw an article on Android Central about using it with a Nexus 5, but I don't know the ins and outs.

About 5 days in with CM11 now,and i don't think it will stay for me very long. The random restarts are getting more frequent, the smoothness and responsiveness is not as good as it was the first day, and the battery life is getting worse frown.gif i dont know if its from my device or from the ROM. But imo cyanogen need to hurry up and release the stable or at least monthly version if cm11. Until then, i may switch to another Rom which seems to be quite liked and popular called Android Revolution HD. Its said to a basically a sense 5.5 ui with much better performance and battery life, which is exactly what im looking for. Does anyone have experience with this ROM?

What Kernel are you using? 

post #777 of 832

Damn I dont feel like getting a custom rom simply because OTA updates are just so much easier.........
