Can i afford to keep overcharging for 10 hrs.
post a full charge, most phones go to trickle charge, just above the poverty line, so i dont think there is any issue such as overcharging.

All my phone over the past 5 years have been on charger overnight, and i have never had to change a battery before i decided to change the phone.

You could also try Ragemod T30. Ninphetamine 2.1.2 & 2.1.3 gave equal battery result. I found Ninphetamine 2.1.2 much smoother.
The new Speedmod T39 has brightness setting altered when using auto brightness feature, could make slight improvement haven't tested though.

What are you UV setting ?
I am on T-30 now. I can still say with games/watching videos and full time synch i am at 46% at 11:18. Thats close to a day and a half so far.

The voltage setting is the same that you shared.

Only difference is that i am running the phone at normal speeds without reducing it while usage.

Only while sleep i am running the phone at 800. Going to try 500 in idle mode and see if that helps as well.

So far the best set up is 6.1 Lite, Ninp 2.1.3 and Ragemod T-30 over it.

That sounds good. You can set CPU for sleep mode from 200 to 500 with 850mv, no issues. I usually put the data off at night which does result in saving up battery. On Revolution Rom that comes with Google Maps 5.6 I have found no issues in regards to RILJ dialer & GTALK_ASYNC_CONN. I am seeing usual battery loss at night like to Litening 4.1,4.2 of 2-3% with 8 hours.
It seems this issue is related to Google Maps with 5.8 and 5.9. On revolution with KH3 Rom & modem the phone goes in deep sleep.

I am not sure if I mentioned it but also try installing CSC KF3 file which has improved the network with my device.

The other day i was in a cell shop checking out some phone with a friend of mine when we got our hands on a Galaxy S2, HTC sensation, Xperia Arc. The weird thing was the Sensation. Once the display was turned on it was the least impressive of the 3 phones. We tried various things to get the phone to display things nice and bright but compared to my phone(mi 410) or any of the other phones mentioned, the display appeared dull. I was wondering whether this was a faulty phone or was this normal. On the Igyaan website this phone was compared to the S2 and the same observation was made but S2 is somthing very different. Any thoughts on this?

I loved the sensation in comparison. I cannot comment on why you had that observation - I compared both phones as owned by friends and the sensation's UI was far ahead (sense) than touchwiz!

I am using a S2 and planning to install the CM7.1
I want to know if I can get back to the stock android OS after flashing with CM7.1 when I have issues with the phone?

Take a back up from CWM recovery before you go ahead with CM7 which is still underdevelopment and not all features are working fine, plus there is quite Force Close with some of the apps. In case you not happy with CM7 you could always restore the back up file.

Default Hard bricked!!!

I am happy to announce that I have .... errr.. ermm... (sob!! sob!!!) hard bricked by 5570. This is what happened.

I downloaded ROM manager. (has asked few pages back). It was asking for CWM recovery. Instead of using Odin, (and because one of the two threads in xda forum mentions use of this), I use ROM manager to install CWM recovery. WHile browsing for the appropriate version, I hit something, and the phone starts downloading something. I ignored the "successfully installed" message, and the phone was on for few days. The incident was clean out of mind till I did a reboot, to find a black screen. And charging was not showing the battery logo. I walked straight to the Samsung auth. serv. center.

The center's view si that there is no warranty, since the phone is imported.

Now, awaiting their report.

Had a similar experience many years ago with a Nokia 6100. Phone was from Singapore, duty paid etc with international warranty..did some software update / upgrade nonsense from Nokia and phone reboots to a BROWN screen..

Took it to Nokia service and got the same message inspite of showing them my international warranty etc.

Decided then That I will not buy a high end nokia again!! NEVER!!

Epilogue: Got a call a few days later telling me that the main chip inside is burnt and needs replacement. Bill was 8xxx for a phone worth 16xxx then!!!

Had to change it to boot the phone!!Changed it ..SOLD it!!rather dumped it!!

Hope you have better news!!

guys, a lot of you may be using the handcent sms client, but just for those who arent, or those who are not aware, the blacklist feature works wonderfully.
I added some repeat offenders( spammers) last night.
Trust me, i have not had a more peaceful day in months.
I didnt have to lose weight so i could work more from at home earning 15-20k extra per month at the prime property I bought in greater noida, and saving enough for a trip to bangkok!!!!
