1) The phone is fast and fluid for the speed. The maximum speed of this kernel is 1.56GHz. When zRAM is enabled, the fluidly of the ROM is improved. I'm not sure if zRAM is enabled by default. I never turned off the phone at all today.

2) This kernel is very good on battery life with 2 cores running. I used GPS a lot today. The battery wasn't draining as quickly as it was with Sebastian's kernels.

3) Here's where the disappointment comes into play. Even though I got great Wi-Fi signal strength (which I don't use much on the road), the phone kept shifting between 2G, 3G, and 4G. Mobile network signal was not constant. I could never lock on a 4G network for long. When I used GPS, it took a long time for Google Maps to lock on to a satellite and my current position. When I type in an address to get directions for, it took a long time for Google Maps to find my destination. With Sebastian's kernels, I never had this problem. I was constantly locked on 4G networks and I had an instant lock on satellites when using GPS. I would type in a destination address and within seconds, I had directions from my current position to the destination.

Just so everyone knows what I do for a living, I'm a mobile Service Technician for Xerox. Having said that, you now know how important for me to have reliable GPS when it comes to servicing customer's copier machines. I have a certain time limit in which I have to reach the customer's site. Therefore, I don't have time for GPS to try to lock on a satellite so that I can get the information I need.

At this point, I'm going to flash back to Sebastian's kernel. At the time of testing his kernel, I was running the 1.30.2 version. I see that he release a 1.30.3 version in which he overclocked the GPU a little. I'm going to give this a try and see how this goes. (unless someone here wants me to test Anthrax's kernel)

Hi Cat. I'm here. Did you by chance test Anthrax's kernel? If so, how was it?
hi my friend !

yes i did test antraxx, last bricked and last sebastian .....

what i can finally say that bricked is the best for my phone, i like it because it is very fast ....the fastest in fact !

and i don't have the problem you had with it .... works great for me. so far no issues in last release, no overheat, no reboots, no lags, no nothing

anthraxx is not so far from bricked .... working fine.

sebastian is nice too because I can use 1.6ghz. but not as speed as bricked.

bricked is for my sensation the best kernel .

You know what, as each device is different and respond or support different thing ,what works for me may not work for you, so very difficult to say that this kernel is the best one.

let's say that all kernels are great and each user has to test by itself to see which one is the most responsive ,the best for his device.

I agree with you 150%!! Every phone is built and responds differently. In this case, the best kernel for you was the worst for me. Having said that, Sebastian's kernels are definitely the best for my phone!

If I get FM radio to work with this new release (nailbitin'), then this will be my definite ROM for my phone. Or at least until Elegancia Sense 4 gets to be just as good... Eagerly awaitin' today's release...
