The developers are still working on vince, so it will not die so soon. 👍👍

I'm starting to wonder if this will happen since people (devs) releasing custom ROM's for Vince always don't seem to optimize them, and the amount of devs who release new stuff for Vince has gone down quite a bit (which is understandable since its an old phone - my Vince is over 3 years old - but hw-wise, its more than capable of running modern software).

I mean, I'd prefer it if we can get a proper A11 with minimal or no UI crashes and optimizations so the OS runs as it should.
It would certainly save me from spending £300 on Xiaomi Mi 10t Lite 5G (which I've been eyeing to buy).

According to my opinion, it will be better to move on to a newer hardware device.

No doubt, but its also a good practice to update older devices and let them run for as long as possible.
I don't think the 4 GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage (coupled with an octa core CPU) in Vince are outdated by any means. (in fact, they remain more than capable years down the line).

In fact this device could EASILY go for another year for those of us who occasionally game and use the phone for work related stuff.

I think smartphone manufacturers should make more of an effort to upgrade the software for these phones regularly and optimize them accordingly... that way, when it is time for consumers to move to another mobile phone, they are more likely to stick to the manufacturer they know will support their phone for a while.

Plus, 4 year software support ensures less waste - which is actually more important than ever... and its doable for a mobile phone that exceeds new OS requirements.

Well, the device is still living

    Is there anyway way to het this feature
    I think it should be a default feature in android in general
    The asus rog phone got it officially as "bypass charging" in a new update

    In a nutshell the feature allows the phone to use power directly from the charger bypassing the battery altogether this is especially good for gamers and long sessions because u can use the phone without wasting even a fraction of battery life cycle
    It can extend battery life a great deal.

    After some searching I found out it can be done with a magisk module called advanced charging controller

    Any chance we can implement this in a flashable zip or in a rom without the need for rooting?
    It is certainly possible since there is kernels that support this for some devices and since it was implemented on the asus rog phone 3 by a software update

    .. it's explained in detail here

    asus roc 3 with bypass charging

    some kernel with battery idle mode support
    Well it's a good thing but it have it's own disadvantages
