Debating whether it would be worth the hassle of backing up, wiping, flashing and restoring apps to move to Quarx's new build.
Anybody used both and can shed light on the general differences?
Is it actually that noticeable in average use? (and has camera performance drastically improved?)
I've had no issues with ringtone bugs or ghost touches, so remove those from the equation for this comparison. I'm interested purely in a comparison of their general performance, stability and battery life.
I am using the new February 17 Quarx nightly for a day now. No ghost touches so far, and battery life is still bad: Android OS keeps the phone woken up a lot, uses a lot of battery. 4% per hour idle with wi-fi on.
Camera performance is very similar to sevenrock's build when taking photos, however video recording seems to have improved: it's easier to stop recording (it took several touches before) and saving the video is instant, it goes back to viewfinder preview right away.
Unfortunately, recorded videos are stuttering every 1-2 second when played back, and quality is still bad because resolution and video/audio bitrate are low (using Android 4.2 camera).
When modifying video quality settings in lgCamera, recording either fails completely, or (when setting higher audio sample rate) audio mutes after 10 seconds.
