UK TrueSmart: First impressions
So my shiny new TS arrived last week unexpectedly (Came home from work, wife hands me parcel saying "this arrived for you", I go "wtf, what could that be?" open and go "wow, wasn't expecting that")
Played with it for a few mins and put it aside as I needed to go swimming, very, very disappointed I couldn't take it with me.
First day usage left the battery quite drained, but that's expected. I then charged it up on Friday and pretty much left it till Tuesday when there was 87% battery left, cycled to work (~30 mins ride) tracking using sportstracklive (If you want a GPX then PM me as i don't want to make it public to the world) 70-odd percent left. Spent a bit of time showing it off to friends and colleagues, charged it up (it wasn't that low but I wasn't taking any chances) then rode home again. Still at 97% after the ride, wow. Rode in Wednesday, home again Wednesday and in again today, still at 66%.
Seriously impressed with the battery life on stock ROM. (that's assuming the percentage isn't a complete lie, which is a big assumption).
Question now is:
1. Do I play with cyrilp's SWapp link or continue to test the battery with current minimal usage to establish a "control" for battery drain. (PS sorry cyrilp for the FC reports, it doesn't seem happy on my Ascend P2)
2. Do I apply loki's ROM now or later...?
All in, I forgive Omate a *little* but they're seriously in my bad books for lack of waterproofing, looks like I can't use it on this years London Triathlon after all
