Blade V4.5.0 initial impressions
I was coming from Maximus and I have been using Blade rom for quite some time. Here is the initial impressions of first charge cycle after the rom flash and I bet it will get better on future charge cycles.
Base: Blade Rom V4.5.0 (No mods just plain ROM)
Usage: Moderate to to heavy (with WiFi / 3G / Auto Sync always On)
UP time from 100% to 3% ~ 21 Hours
Screen On time ~ 4 Hours (with stock auto brightness on) (No Lower brightness mod)

and little bit of all other remaining apps like Any.do etc...
Over all I am pretty much impressed and it is a great ROM so far. The best ROM for streaming youtube (I see ~ 7 % drain for 30 minutes) which is Amazing. The biggest drainers are 3G and creepy HTC Music. yes for me it is draining 4 - 5 % for 30 minutes of listening which is bizare.. I will check with different Music app and let you guys know.
Jazakallah for Team Blade for the awesome ROM and keep up the good work. I will keep you posted of any issues. (Hopefully not)
