You know what this means right? The latest 4.3 will roll for the 6506 just before this shows up for the 6503 and puts everyone in a holding pattern for another month or two while waiting for the 6506 version to roll...

Really close to when the official US version of the 6506 hit as well...

Not to worry, they'll get it to us eventually... gives me excuse to play with the original development roms again...

I find I still have bluetooth issues with Omni... I haven't really played with AOKP KK or CM11 recently... (last time I tried CM11, BT was very buggy...) and Liquid Smooth KK looks great... but some combination of things resulted in it not seeing my sim/baseband, etc...

I know that I don't seem to experience very good battery life with KK ASOP roms... of course, I don't see very great stock rom battery life either. I should spend some quality time with BBS and try and nail down what usually kills my battery life.

It really depends on how much I'm using my phone and if I'm playing games...

Yesterday I was at ~ 56% after ~ 11 hours on a custom sony rom... but it was fairly light usage (30-40 minutes of bluetooth audio playback, multiple gmail account access, some twitter, some facebook, some facebook messenger, some google hangouts, no calls, a few texts, etc.)

Similar time frame on ASOP (Omni) I would have ~ 40%... perhaps a little less. It's not terribly scientific as I'm not doing the exact same thing every day on my phone. it's also not like I don't use my phone at all... I did discover that HDwidgets was really killing my battery recently so I stopped using that.. OH, and to get better battery life on ASOP I'd also disabled GPS and google location services.

In general numbers, I generally see another 3-4 hours of run time when I'm using a Sony stock rom vs ASOP... but I know others get significantly better battery life than I do. *shrug*

(btw, today I'm at ~ 41% battery left after ~ 11:50 on battery, and I have ~ an hour of screen time. (~61% of my battery use is Android OS today... over 9 hours of keep awake time)
