RC29 - Quick Review
After manually upgrading the G1 to RC29, I have seen a dramatic improvement in some areas of the system:
- Scrolling is much improved and smoother
- Battery life (or more appropriately the batter meter) is more accurate
- WiFi Is more stable
- Swipes and long presses are not as easily mistaken for other screen maneuvers.
* Some things that I have noticed (dosn't mean they weren't there before) when a calendar event is shown, the screen blurs and the event is brought to the forefront - neat.
* Still no advanced accelerometer implementation (except for PicSay).
* GPS is still very inaccurate to the point of unusable (for me).
* Battery doesn't seem to get as warm with extended 3G use.
* Battery lasts a good 14 hours or more. Letting it drain down is a good idea - seems to "break it in" (?).
Thats all I could come up with playing around - feel free to add!
