What's wrong with a bit of bloat??? I'm ok, I'm ok even with Root and STUFF
All right, I'm rooted, have safestrap, xposed, wanam and I'm rocking with Beans town. AKA beanstown106 ROM. Even still I have a ton of bloat and presently I'm at 9hrs of battery usage, 1 hour and 10 min of screen time and I have 29 minutes of voice calls! OK, ok guess where my battery is at???
84%!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Say what? My app count with Titanium is 109 (yes I'm an app junkie) and I have over 3,000 contacts with pages and pages of notes on each, YET, I'm at 84%.
Somebody help me, Why am I searching for more? I mean this in just an addicted flasher question. This S5 is really the bomb. I had a S4 but after a bad golf round, and other stuff and I took a hammer to it on the glass face until it looked like toast and then (I cant' believe I'm telling ya'll this I bent it in half) yep...crap that would have made a great video to post, maybe even viral. On craigslist I found a local Verizon employee who had a "new S5" and I mean right out of the box for $375 (no upgrade as I'm unlimited data etc and use about 15gb per month) and I have this kind new phone now. I really thought I would never upgrade to the S5 from the S4 because they seemed virtually the same but I was wrong. I'm really liking the S5, ESPECIALLY now that we have Root and Recovery. I'm just hoping that I do not have another bad round of golf, and that has me worried!
So the reason for this post is to ask, what's the big deal with getting all the bloat off of the device. I know I searched and searched and flashed every new Rom that's on the development site so far as of today, (I use the Safestrap stock slot without worry as I have Odin and a lot of resources to recover and major backups) but I'm back to Beans and I'm happy. This was the first Rom to get the S5 working on the table, and it's not de-bloated much at all, but dang, look at my battery life. Excellent...and I can still use Allshare, baby crying detector, Verizon tones and about 400 other apps available (that I know I'll never use) and on and on. So what I say or ask is why I need to keep searching for the most streamlined ROM????. I'm at 84% after 9 hours!
Disclaimer in fine print...Please take no offense to this post, I know I need flash rehab but it's a general question that do not have an answer for?
