Battery life is much improved, or has been in my experience.
Through about 3 hours of similar usage on 22.214.171.1243 I have found that usually about ~10-15 of my battery has been used with BBM and web surfing. Today I have done an equal amount of messaging, if not more, and I have yet to see the bar to even move.
I have also observed the activity of the CPU on the top right is less when using the internet. Often I would get a few intermittent tics when BBMing aggressively, but this is not the case. I only see clocks being used upon the read receipt being sent, and likewise for the delivery.
Edit again: Full day of usage going into today, the battery life is definitely better and so is the reception. This is probably due to something with the radio that makes it more agreeable for 850 MHz bands like Rogers. Definitely _the_ best OS I've used thus far. And check my post history, I don't exaggerate or make stupid "battery is awesome" claims after 10 minutes.
Word to Phil_UK for finding this beauty, you beautiful Englishman you.
Quoting Morry here so you guys can try it yourself and not read suspect "problems". Try it yourself. Rogers customers, I highly recommend this OS:
