- Whats the best firmware for making the tablet work smoothly? Right now I'm on 4.3 and the whole experience is terribly sluggish, even borderline unusuable. should I get the official KK fw?
Oh and what's the best keyboard app? The stock keyboard doesnt give suggestions..
The battery issues is not really a real battery problem. It is, in fact, a battery reporting issue. I.e. my tablet drained 90% of its battery in 1 hour then I continued to use it for another 10 hours on 11% battery. So 90% decrease in 1 hour and 10 hours of usage on 11%. Just don't believe the battery % meter it lies the thing has the juice even though it doesn't believe it itself. It does go into deep sleep to. Rebooting can often restore the battery meter to full.
1. Use Smart launcher and Rozaks rom
2. View running apps by pressing the hardware key (two squares) and Swipe apps that you not actively using away (android is very good at freeing up resources when you do this)
Do the above and it will run just fine I promise with plenty of battery to spare. Only downside is you will never really know what charge level the actual battery is. Best bet is to use CPUZ and look at the battery voltage in Mv reading 3600+ Mv is good around 3500-3400 Mv battery is probably quite low. Best to plot voltage readings from full charge till flat and work out the scale perform a logarithmic linear regression then just work out your battery % like this :/
