Pic is a Droid DNA, what I currently own.
I am OP from yesterday. Lets kick this off:
Although that seems like a nice phone, in comparison with the specs from other phones, it is lacking a bit.
The battery is smaller than many competitors (LG G3, Galaxy S6, M8 and M9) but the 720p screen makes up for it.
Think about this, most phones out right now will have four times the crispy-ness on their screen than that one.
That is just my opinion however. A nice site to use is GSMArena.
LG G2 with CloudyStock (stock based KK). I keep coming back to the stock ROM look and features, LG really did an amazing job with it.
Too bad Lollipop on its own is a pile of shit, otherwise I would have been looking forward to their official version.
I think I just got aroused. (lol)
But still the CPU, Storage, and screen (its 1080p which is stunning, but there are quadhd phones right now.)
Oooooo that may have just killed it.
But dayum other companies could learn a thing or two from mr 5350 over here. What a battery!
May I ask why you're not looking at the more conventional phones such as a G3 or Nexus 5/6? I dislike touchwiz but for flashing the S6 looks pretty nice.
if you're buying unlocked I would check out:
OnePlus One -- If you dont have verizon, this is /the/ best phone you can get right now.
Vivo X5Max+ -- Another great battery
I have no idea, I seem to like the chinese smartphones more than the conventional ones
I think it's interesting that some of these small companies can release better phones that major western companies these days
Hey, I've been having some problems compiling a kernel for the HTC One S (HTC Ville), the phone crashes inbetween the phone's booting, logcat doesn't give me anything interesting and I don't know how to debug the kernel further.
I'm using the sources from the official CM12 repo for the ville are there any special flags for compiling it for a hboot 2.16 device? I'm also running the approximate nightly build that matches the git clone date of my kernel
Also is there any IRC channels for development for HTC msm8960 devices?
You could have some corrupt files. Try a reinstall of your kernel. I dont believe there are special flags, but if you have Verizon. they sometimes have anti-bootloader-unlock making it a pain to run ROMs.
There's no Verizon variant of the One S, I have installed many roms before but I want to modify something that no one bloody does even though it's the easiest thing, I'm not installing a kernel, I'm compiling one and there's no documentation on how to compile it for the certain toolchain/hboot version
Xda is a piece of shit for anyone actually wanting to learn to develop for embedded
How soon are you looking to buy? Here are /g/'s top picks:
-LG G3 (or you can wait for G4)
-OnePlusOne (or you can wait for the OP Two, these are the current best phones out)
-Nexus 5 (6 maybe, most hate the giant size)
The G2 is probably the best phone I've ever had. It was launched in 2013 and still is fast as fuck.
Does anyone still use this? I've had mine for 2 years now, best phone i've ever purchased.
Using stock ROM.
Side note: I fucked up the wifi capabilities while editing the stock app that controls whatever turns wifi on and off, how do I fix this? I've done everything, even a hard reset.

ah, the lack of logic of a typical Androshit user.
Moto G, Change roms nearly every week at the moment trying to get a decent stable Lollipop rom.
Running AICP (Android Ice Cold Project) at the moment, just installed Optimus Kernel R8.
I love Lollipop but the performance is still an issue to be honest. Can't bring myself to go back to KK now though.
Hoping that now we're seeing the retail Lollipop releases that the CM guys can use them for a more stable and better performing base.
So I have a VZN HTC one M8 and the battery seems to drain pretty fast with moderate use. Anyone experience the same thing or have any potential fixes?
