Up/downgrading are fairly straightforward processes and nothing to be affraid of, but you need to be carefull and pay close attention to the steps of the guide you follow.

> In reply to SONU @ 2015-01-21 16:33 from 6Pe8 - click to readScreen flickering is still very much present. Display will freeze for 2-3 secs only when the phone heats enough, sometimes multiple instances in a row (eg. 1hr or more of video playback or during some games - in short, a prolongued period of usage). I experienced 2 occurrences of autoreboot since upgrade to 205. Not much, but it can happen.

There will be various problems, like, not possible to transfer files onto ext_sd through USB cable (even after reset), or Wi-Fi not working properly when in airplane mode. Lancher will surely redraw after virtually any web surfing, with any browser other than Opera Mini, IME.

Camera, meaning pix quality, is a gigantic cr*p and no amount of new code is gonna fix that.

> In reply to sony @ 2015-01-16 18:39 from uZaT - click to readMTK base phone are not that powerful when compared to qualcomm's offerings. but due to software optimization issue on SP it looks more sluggish than MTK based phones. yes it's true, the initial 4.3 update on SP made it lag a lot, but it was now fixed by the .205 firmware update. on the .207 update which i am using right now i can still notice some lags here and there. the phone only heats up when using mobile data and mobile data+games, the max temp I encountered is 38 degrees celsius. don't worry though all phones does heats up. I didn't encounter battery drain issue, my phone can last 2 days without mobile data. but only 1 day with mobile data and online games around 4%.

personally i would choose qualcomm than MTK. but depending on your choices MTK based phone may be better than SP.
