    i heard it was something to do with it not supporting the hd screen :dontknow: pretty stupid since it is a hd game :rolleyes: it just shows up as incompatible with phone on the market

    decided to wait until after my exams to install gta3, think i'll be on it 24/7 if i installed it :p:
    That happened with me and 9mm apparently it isn't compatible with my phone which is the stupidest thing ever :confused:

    Yeah same I'm trying to keep away from all forms of gaming till after May

    Some interesting shots of my battery life here, usually leave it in airplane mode and lose 1-2% overnight, charged it till 100% finished at 11pm, light use till 11:30ish then put it in airplane mode, heres the results when i woke up around 7:15am

    Heres my device details

    as you can see even with high batt drain during sleep and airplane mode and with the titanium schedules running after almost 9hrs on battery, almost all i slept through the batt was still 100% lol, i dont know whether to believe the app readings or not. with in 20mins of taking the screenshots and downloading xda app and signing up etc i had dropped to 92% batt. right now im on 11hrs 20mins and 83% battery.

    Just wondering if my batt stats sounds real, seems weird to me, usually i use Juicedefender to put the phone in airplane mode and get about -6ma drain. i stopped JD from running, manually put it in airplane and its -20ish lol

    Onto ICS, experiencing a few freezes and lags but other than that it's good.

    Are you using any underclocking settings for sleep mode? It might help! Try to see if you can configure them within the Reaper Control built in app.

    Batteries take a while to calibrate immediately after a ROM flash. Battery will need to calibrate itself to give nore accurate readings. Give it some Time

    yup underclocked at 307200 i used to have it at the bare minimum then remembered i have back up schedules running, do you think they'd work at the lowest UC ?

    i was using conservative while asleep, would reaper be better for power saving

    and i thought so, ive gone through so many different roms in two weeks lol i havent let my battery settle and adjust fully to one yet smh

    depends on how much batt life you need and are getting currently and how you use the phone, i'd say no imo, good custom rom and the right apps and usage and you can get days, some people even say 5 days :eek: although it depends on how you use your phone and what for

    Plan for tomorrow:

    See how much I can drop current contract to per month (12m remaining).

    If it's then less than 180 quid to pay it off, sign new contract, get HTC One X, put Desire S on eBay (unless some body here wants for 150), pay off old contract.

    Thoughts?

    :eek: your selling the Desire S? :eek: why??

    That's why I never go with 24 month contracts
    I only have a couple more months, then I'm going to a Galaxy Nexus or One S!

    He clearly said he'd be getting the One X so presumably that has something to do with his intention to sell it...
