Fastest ROM for ZTE Crescent?

11 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Hi, I heard that Android 4 requires too much power for the budget ZTE smartphones (Blade/Crescent) so I was wondering what is the best ROM with regards to speed and overall functionality please?

Thanks for your advice.

PS I did search but the only two results were the Fish n Chips and Cyanogen ROM threads

I like harrybao ROM as its near stock with all the goodies, but there are many fast and functional ROMs give them a try.

PD. If you have osf2 and want to try out harrybao flash osf2 kernel after.

Hi gabriwinter, thanks for replying.

The kernel file you refer to, is that a small file about 3mb?

Thanks

"Power" is an interesting term to use... I'm pretty sure it's the same battery. :P

ICS actually performs pretty well if you're talking in benchmark terms, I think I managed to get it to beat FnC once.

Hi Dazzozo, thanks for replying with the ICS suggestion. Do they make an ICS for the Crescent? On the Crescent front page (this site) all I can see stickied are Fish n Chips and Cyanogen.

Thanks again

Cm9 performs better than fnc in several places as to be expected from a newer OS. to an everyday user however the difference isn't noticeable. Its a question of taste. Try both :)

Yeah, it's pretty hard to make comparisons like the ones you're after.

Everything here is pretty fast, to be honest.

Hi guys, thanks very much for your input. I opted for Cyanogen 9 after I debranded and returned to stock the phone was really slow but CM9 seems to make it sparkle.

I might try harrybao that gabriwinter suggested later on when I'm in the mood for experimenting.

Thanks again, Modaco rules :)
