Samsung Galaxy S3 - Page 38

post #371 of 2113
I use CM10 Jellybean as my daily driver. The US variant doesn't seem to have any of the issues that the International version has. Only issue left that I can see is that CDMA LTE is not functional. But that doesn't matter to me since we don't have it on sprint in San Diego anyways yet.

Just turn on auto brightness? It's a far superior browser ;-)

The Linux on Android just got a lot faster for me. Totally usable now. I had to disable a few things from booting up using APK Start-up Manager and also clear everything from memory before using it. You guys on the 2GB models are going to have fun with that if you get around to using it!

Although, it is still only using a single copre, which is sucky. If it could use all cores it'd be much faster, Doubt I'd need to clear memory.

EDIT:

Also now totally looking into importing a Korean 2GB Exynos 4412 Mali-400 model biggrin.gif Since it'll run on a HDSPA 21+ network like I have here in the UK, is 2GB, LTE ready (for when the UK gets that, though it probably wont work at that time anyway, but meh) and Quad Core!

Does changing the number of allowable background tasks, or auto-ending activities in the options menu for debugging actually help with anything? I don't notice a difference.

Again, you are not listening. Autobrightness never even goes as low as the lowest brightness setting (with which I usually operate). The stock browser will further turn white backgrounds grey to save power.

Also, having tried out Chrome, I find Dolphin much better. It's much easier to get at bookmarks and the gestures improve speed noteably. I would still be using Dolphin if it had the extra power saving feature.

Really? You would be able to quite easily get the lowest brightness setting after playing with the backlight settings in the kernel(and that is system wide, not just in the browser), not that you need to even bother... having it on for longer will make a larger difference in my experience thumb.gif

What's the MIUI camera app like? I'd much rather use the official samsung one and have ALL the features it has. That's almost 90% of the reason I went for this phone.

Here's a quick vid of me running Ubuntu.

Going to start nliting an XP installation now.

^ Video will be up in about 30 minutes. Going to start nliting an XP installation now.

It fits all of my needs, so the only feature I know of that it's missing is taking tons of pictures at once(which it might still have, I haven't even had much of a play with it), it still takes pics without any stuttering and the video quality is very good. However I always have a DSLR to fall back to if I want to take some proper pictures, I don't try taking anything fancy with my phone lol

The stock browser actually has separate settings for brightness and power savings from the rest of the phone. (The stock video player does, too.) And I'll state this for at least the fourth time: The stock browser takes a white background and turns it grey. That is in addition to any brightness setting. Furthermore, I don't have my phone rooted, and won't do so until a kernel is released that still contains Samsung's TouchWiz UI but allows for 4G LTE (which I believe is the current hangup) with improved batterly life and no bloatware. Plus, I have no idea how to fudge with the kernel and don't want to try.

Cool, however I very much doubt the white to grey thing makes any more than absolutely marginal differences(same with dropping the brightness below stock minimum), just having it on in general sucks tons of energy anyways.
