Still the fastest bootup and best boot animation out there. For some odd reason, my apps didn't sync up. That's ok, I'd rather restore with TiBu, but whatev.
Pretty much a stock theme until you flash one of the many theme options out there. There's pretty much a theme for everyone (except maybe those looking for red, apparently). And as this ROM becomes more and more popular, many themers have been porting there tried and true themes over.
Looks like the trend of builds ending in even numbers work better than the odd ones on my Droid. LFY1.6 has been very smooth with no lag during screen transitions. I topped out at 1630 on Quadrant and short and long benches of 176 and 481 respectively.
App and System Function:
There is occasional app opening lag. It's not every time, but it happens enough to notice, especially when receiving a call. Otherwise, every app seems to work with no issue. For some reason, my Market has been rather slow, but it has been for a few diff ROMs now and I can't relate that to any one ROM.
Battery life is def better with 1.6 as opposed to 1.5. I've really come to the conclusion that the days of going all day without needing to charge are well behind me, as this was one of the better 2.2 ROMs on battery and my phone died after 10 hours of moderate to heavy use. With very basic use, I'm sure I could stretch it to 12-16 hours, but that'd be hardly using it at all. But again, I'll add, that's better than many other 2.2 ROMs on my Droid.
I almost left out the "Goodies" section for this b/c LFY doesn't truly offer much in the way of extras. But I will mention I love being able to change music tracks from the lock screen. It's not quite as handy as CM's long press on the volume rocker, but it's a better option than nothing, and AFAIK
, these are the only two ROMs that offer anything like it. Otherwise, you'll see the tradtional scripts and such, but that's about it.
Very satisfactory ROM that was a vast improvement on my Droid from the previous build. It's well known that I'm a "goodies" guy and this does lack a bit in that area. But if you just want a ROM to perform and get the job done, you'll be pleased with this ROM.
3.5 out of 5 stars (which I don't feel guilty voting a "4" in the poll)
