Hey guys,

I recently got a Captivate (well, 1 month ago) and 2 phones ago I had a HTC Tilt and I was definitely a flashaholic then ROM-wise.

With my Captivate, even now, I probably change ROMs every other day. I like trying different things out and hate just having one ROM at all time.

But I know when I first started out, I had no idea which ROM to pick..

ERGO

I am thinking of doing Video Reviews of ROMs. Initially once a week and then if people show support probably more often than that. I will try my best to be neutral and unbiased, as I honestly have no preference for ROMs either, I just flash new stuff and try different things out.

I'll be highlighting the following for each ROM I flash & review:
-Battery Life
-GPS accuracy & speed
[those 2 are probably my most important personally]
-CPU & GPU Speed (LinPack, Quadrant, etc)
-Internet Up/Down Speed (SpeedTest)
-Unique features
-Major issues / crashes / major bugs / etc

I will try my best to be as subjective as possible as I do not want to discourage people from developing ROMs but instead the opposite.

Please let me know what you think, if you have any suggestions, etc.

If I feel like I have the approval of the XDA community I will start a YouTube channel ASAP!

Thanks

Good Idea! Wrong Forum! Even though you are reviewing roms it should still be in general. Great Idea though.

Yep do it now!!!! I was ready to watch some videos as well. I'd like to see some of these ROMs in action so I can decide for myself. I don't have time to keep switching ROMs every day myself
