    Welcome to the forum! :D

    Oh come on, spend a few hours reading the firmware threads and decide for yourself. I say this not because I'm an unhelpful bastard, but because the answer to that question is very subjective. :cool:

    I know a number of users are apparently quite happy with the 1.6 version -- for me, it was a bad and short-lived experience, so I'd recommend the K4 and L3 builds of the 1.5 version. I haven't tried any of the custom roms.

    But really, ask 10 people and you'll get 12 different answers. :eek:

    what he said

    im still on ii5 galaxhero as it works nice for me.
    from what ive been reading IK5 is a good 1.5 build but follow the guides and read. there is quite a bit to take in if you are new to it but you will feel alot more confident when you know what you are doing, what you will achieve and what your expectations are

    I think that the ones staying with 1.5 are just losing on the experience of 1.6. Galaxo 1.6.1 is amazing compared to Galaxhero 1.5.

    I like it, except the battery life of less than 48hr is just a buzz kill.

    really? please explain how you come to that.
    other than a few more apps, performance is not that much better due to him not being able to introduce renice or compcache/heave kernal tweeks due to there not being any 1.6 source currently.
    dont make assumptions

    how is it amazing?
    its less functional than 1.5 galaxo, you get a few more 1.6 apps that are mainly gimics or you can use 1.5 apps that work the same way
    there are alot of bugs in 1.6 that are not in 1.5 that galaxo has not got rid of

    so saying its amazing in comparison to 1.5 i believe is a bit of a bold statement. its been created so people who want a little more than stock 1.6 can use it but untill the source comes for 1.6 its not the same depth and functionality of the original galaxo/galaxhero's on 1.5.
    the reason why people like myself have not moved is that there is no benefit other than maps 4.0, googles, buzz.
    maps 4.0 is buggy and there are better solutions, goggles = gimic, buzz is nothing to write home about.
    please correct me if im wrong

    It's faster, it's more stable, it's more responsive (keyboard, camera, orientation change), it has better memory management, slightly longer battery life, working lock button etc.
    This is the first time I can say that I am happy with this phone.
    Good riddance, Cupcake! ;)

    i wouldn't know, i haven't used either (strictly vanilla), but from the statement kouske made, i'm assuming he has, which would make his opinion not an assumption

    ironically enough, when you say "don't make assumptions", you're assuming that's what he's doing, instead of actually forming an informed opinion

    i have used both of them and truly 1.6 is everything that dreli said. you have to use it to see it for yourself, honestly.

    btw dreli how did you install sense on the 1.6.1? :eek:

    ps.
    with minfreemanager working i get 40mb of free memory almost all the time...i didnt really use compcache so i wouldnt know how it affects 1.5 but i know for sure that 1.6.1 is way better than 1.5 galaxo (thats a personal experience though, maybe people here made their 1.5 galaxo work way better than i have)

    40mb??? Are you on aggressive?

    By the way, only a minor thing, but it really bugs me. Does anyone experience slight stuttering when you open the drawer?

    Isn't it obvious that 1.6 (higher version) will be better compared to an older version. Howver till the bugs in Galaxo 1.6.1 are ironed out, i am gonna stick with the custom galaxohero rom.

    remember windows me?

    just because something is newer, doesn't mean it's better - more features means there's more to go wrong

    when i meant by better, i was refering to the presentation aspect. May be i didnt make myself clear there !!!:eek:

    This is something like vista, which did bring in a good UI but brought along wit it a ton of problems.

    I'm still on GalaxHero 1.5, and no plans on changing until there's another official release of 1.6 firmware that's squished the bugs and has source code released so that Drakaz can do a proper Galaxo based on it.

    ...That or them getting everything working on GAOSP 2.1 :)
