    Well there are, increasingly, varying models of phones being released.

    With different hardware comes potential issues. (example being the OSF).

    I've not really researched it, so I have no clue. I assumed it would be.

    edit: Just thinking, what would I lose/gain if I got the HD2?

    + More power
    + More pixels
    + Flash
    - A smallish phone? lol

    Hmm.

    How long does it last?
    I'd say just a few hours in use. :erm:
    when I check battery use it's always display that has taken up most power (90+%).

    I have sneaky feeling it may be the charger, I was at my friends house 12 hours ago when it became fully charged (was with a nokia charger though).

    Theres still like a third of the bar left, I've been using it as normal- but was sleep 7 hours so I couldn't say for sure.

    Updated to 2.2 the day I got it, which was...17 days ago, give or take.

    Download OS monitor from the market to make sure nothing is forcing the CPU to stay at 1ghz and the phone not sleep. That's very strange because that's an atrocious battery life and I know the GS has a good one. Definitely try different chargers.

    HD2s keep going for just less than £210.

    If I manage to flog my Hero for >£90 it could be worth it.


    Ugh, decisions decisions.

    I know, right?

    I'm so close to just buying one

    but I haven't even had my Hero for 6 months; it feels a bit wrong.

    A phone that is usable 24/7.

    I will do a clean install of a working CGB 1.x and be selective of what I install.
    Then I'll reassess.

    I haven't had any problems with this phone whatsoever! It's never been unusable. So an upgrade isn't necessary tbh but I want more

    I've gone back to froyo (CM 6.1 cos cronos was down). Gingerbread just seemed really slow albeit a lot cleaner and nicer

    Think I'll wait until Cronos GB is using a Cronos kernel and not the Flykernel. It just seems wrong...

    And was the battery pretty bad after that? I get around 1% drain overnight so you shouldn't be getting that much drain overnight
