He was using it perfectly happily for an afternoon while I had his... then I told him, and gave him his back... He didn't comment on, or notice this... So I declare that in a sorta double blind test, he couldn't see a difference...
So I now give some official villainrom advice... Don't clock your sgs2 to silly speeds, just because you can... I doubt you can tell the difference between 500 conservative and 1.5 ondemand... So try it do you really need to extend your e-peen by overclocking? Yes, quadrant is higher, but no you don't notice it
@nobnut, the above not really directed at you, more trying to save others from the same fate...
I never tried to overclock a phone till the N1. It took some clock but I never could see any difference unless I benchmarked it. Eventually turned to playing with the clock for battery but on that one I found that enough underclock to gain real battery time effected performance in the gui (lag between home screens etc.) and over time came back pretty close to stock.
The first thing a more youthful version of myself toasted was a pentium. For you younger folks back then there were no fans on the cpu or motherboard or anything else in a pc except for the power supply. The cpu just had a big heatsink on it. When I say I smoked it BTW I mean I actually created fire. hehe Learned a wee bit of a lesson there. Between here and there were a few video cards, a laptop, a couple other cpu's. At any rate I'm no master overclocker but I have taken a lap or two and my thought here is that play around and sooner or later you will take that one extra step too many. Not a problem if you got no grief at the result but if you do or would then a person might want to reconsider. Not preaching, just been there.
