    I just got an extended battery for my GNEX gonna use it heavy and condition it.

    I had to charge it for 10 hours and then I gotta drain this to like 8% and then charge another 10 then rinse and repeat for 4 x and then we shall see if the Hyperion 3500mA ext. batt. is good!

    Extended battery so far: over 4hr screen time

    Normally its 2.3 he's by the time it gets this low.

    wow thats.... pretty terrible for an extended battery. i get more than that off my stock battery.


    kitkat is a bit crashy with the custom rom i'm on, but overall its very very nice. phone randomly reboots sometimes not really sure why, but it always boots back up in about 15s so it doesnt really annoy me much.

    This isn't conditioned yet and also the sprint CDMA version is bad with battery compared to the gsm version.

    I got 4 more cycles to do.

    kitkat just aint stable yet on the s4. just had two reboots in phone calls.

    one of the major players on the i9505 is working on enabling dual boot on the rom for me, so i'll be able to swap between cyanogen mod kitkat (stable) and google edition kitkat (looks like nexus, lean and fast but unstable)

    when i see that pics im more impressed to see a One X with a non exchangeable battery under 2000mAh doing 4days or my S3 with the stock 2300mAh (not new tho) doing 2 day ... i had the option to take a extended 4400mAh (with a bulky battery cover) but as i read often in XDA "never trust non official battery, be it extended or standard: all cheap Chinese crap-bag, fake capacity. tho since its cheap people tend to forgive this trap."

    i think i will take a 12000mAh .... external powerbank instead of a battery replacement, more legit, now if only XiaoMI would be so kind and release their in Europe that would be a major blast: 10400mAh aluminium casing (look like a iPod Shuffle tho ... but it's a XiaoMI device, what did you expect ahah) and 11$
    [​IMG]

    and for 4.4 unstable on SGS4 its a good thing that the reboot isn't slow, for the SGS3 so far so good not even meant to get 4.4 soon but still near fully stable with it :D(no reboot no major FC at last)

    also dual booting between Cm and Google style? application? practicality? because i don't see any due to the fact that you will have 2 ROM on a limited storage who will be more limited (unless you can use a reaaaaal good UHS-I µSD) also if it was for 2 different OS i could understand :) like testing SailfishOS or FirefoxOS or Ubuntu, cm is close of a stock google rom (closer than a Samsung rom at last) and the performance are good enough when you compare the two roms. but if dual boot is what rock your boat, its a good thing.

    The GNEX is notorious for bad battery. even with custom ROMs/kernels, etc I didn't know of this before I bought it but I didn't have much choice becuase the criteria:

    under 150 including shipping and new airtime card
    android 4.0.4 or higher (allready on device)
    clean ESN
    sprint (I'm with a sprint MVNO that does not offer any android 4.x or higher phones under 300 dollars)
    4 inch or higher display
    paypal acceptance

    and that was the only choice I had. :( I also had to replace my old phone in a pinch too as my last phone's mic died and it had trouble keeping mobile network signal a lot


    I'm eventually gonna get something better and switch carriers, however I can't afford that right now. :(

    GNEX is a SGS II basically. and i've seen SGS II do way better with stock battery and in permanent 3g mode.

    Still i never heard of bad battery reputation for the GNEX, lots of my friend have one (but we live in Switzerland) and get around 2 days of use depending on "how heavy" is the daily usage, and they all have a external 10k (min) powerbank, but they only use it when we go fishing or skiing on more than a day :D one even has a solar powered 5000mAh battery :roll:

    i've found a XiaoMI international re seller but its 29.90$ instead of 11$ even if its still a low price, its a blatant thievery he get them at 11$ and re sell at 29.90$ , even taking the taxes and port in account (suposed he do "free international delivery") the marging is still double from the original price ... oh wait it's 25% less than apple (joke)

    and for the reason you got that GNEX awwwww i can understand, and a GNEX under 150$ is a pretty good deal, where i am you can't find them under 180-200 ... i had the same "limite" when i got my S3, 120$ more than 150$ limite, 4.7" minimal screen, and any android version , tho.

    my UMI X1 was 4.5" 720p screen my One X was 4.7" 720p so under 4.5-7 i can't anymore :D

    hard to tell without testing, and my One X broke before i could flash anything on it except the RevoHD. but the Sentinel i linked previously Cm10,2 based is a AOSP based (as are many rom around here)

    Ugh, I like my new Nexus 4, but the battery is pretty lame.

    Either way, I can live with that, but I noticed 4.4 is quite unstable at some points. I tried transferring all my pics and movies onto the internal mem using my laptop, but it took me 7-8 tries until everything was copied. The media component keeps crashing.

    Still haven't found out whether this 4.4 is the actual Google ROM or something custom, since the phone does have TWRP Recovery installed.

    But damn, I love this phone! The screen is a little on the large side, but the resolution is pretty cool.

    custom recovery cant affect anything in the OS. they arent even on the same partition, nor running at the same time.

    i think he meant : maybe its a custom rom on it since there is a custom recovery, which would explain the crashes, but normaly atm a Nexus 4 should have a pure google 4.4 afaik

    Temasek's V17 : 4.4.1 again so far so good : signal/ui/smoothness/camera/stability.... i'm quite impressed of cm teams work (duh i forgot that Tema just compile it from cm sources :D)
