Mirasol Displays Urgently Needed

by 01forthemoney / January 31, 2012 12:23 AM PST

I don't know about you guys but my cell phone, Samsung Galaxy S (Gingerbread) has an AMOLED display and I am continually charging the phone through the day. I may as well have a land line!

Somehow, Qualcomm has to get their Mirasol display up and running to give us some cell phone freedom. It's the only viable technology that will extend the life of the battery in our phones.

Who has any information on how close they are to releasing Mirasol to the manufacturers for use in cell phones?

You can check the news but here, I charge from days to week.

However I opted for the biggest battery I could find and then turned off wifi, blue tooth, gps and then if I leave the phone on, it can run a week or longer. If I use the phone a lot I might charge it after 2 or 3 days.

You wrote "gingerbread" which makes me wonder if you are not using the stock ROM. I find this complaint from folk that install other roms.

You need to refresh your tech knowledge

I wish that was always the case.

I'm using my tech knowledge from boots on the ground. That is, real live folk that have installed another ROM and have encounter lower battery times.

Your reply seems to dismiss those folk?

My boots are firmly on the ground as well

Yes, some of the custom ROMs suck battery power. But on the practical side- ask yourself why someone would want a ROM that provides shorter battery life than the stock carrier ROM?

OTOH, I work with enough ROM builders that I can tell you my scenario is more common that the one you're proposing. And I am not comparing with running a stock phone ROM with all the radios turned off. What's the point of having a smartphone when you have to turn off all the systems it's designed to utilize(?)

And there's the deal.

When you get a hint they changed the ROM, you have to ask about it. That's all I did and here's what I'd like to happen next.

Find out if they did, what version it was so we can check if that version was OK.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
