I'm currently on Infusion B04, waiting for the final B06 release. However, I'm still undecided about which ROM I should use: Infusion or CM9 (or any other).
The main points I care about are:
- Stability - No frequent restarts or crashes.
- Performance - Smoothness and gaming performance, mostly.
- Battery Life - No insane battery drain, being able to last at least a day of medium-heavy usage.
And what I mainly want to know is:
- Where does one ROM excel the others.
- Where is one ROM weaker than the others.
- Which one do you recommend, overall, and why.
So, which ROM do you use and why? I'm mainly interested in the two I mentioned, but if you have any other suggestions I'd be glad to hear them.
PS: I've used an early Infusion version, then switched to CM9, then switched back to Infusion to try new versions. And I'm still undecided.
Well, if you want stability and good battery, CM9 is probably the best as it has hardware acceleration. It also has a theme manager that allows you to download themes of the play store/internet which customize the WHOLE phone. It has other things like a customized lockscreen. I have the weather on mine, and a extra toggle for voice recognition.
It has standard features like overclocking, now it has working battery stats and wifi, and some other features which you can see on the thread.
As for gaming performance, it's pretty much the same as other roms. I have noticed that apps are usually a lot slicker on CM9 like facebook and appy geek. The UI is really nice. For example, the status bar is really smooth, even smoother than my brothers dual core device.
CM9 also gets a nice score of 3004 in Antutu, which I have never got before on a ROM (without overclock).
Infusion is also very good, though I haven't tried the later release yet. I miss a few features, like call recording, but most of the infusion features are already in CM9.
