AnonD-300572, 03 Oct 2014Guys any advice to increase the performance of battery life....its too low .... plz help
i al... moreI ran 2 in parallel (admittedly the one with KitKat has 8 GB eMMC, and the JB one has 16 GB, but otherwise they are identical, and identically set up), and the status is this:
JB - 5%
KK - 22%
They were pulled off the charger within seconds apart, both charged to 100%, both were powered off and on before the test, and were largely left alone, as I did not want the screen to interfere with the test that was intended to see whether there are any optimisations to power handling of the CPU.
Now this test was not scientific, and it was only a single test - you know, when it takes 2-3 days to do one, you can't expect this to have been tested several times by now to confirm results.
Last bit - the firmware running on KitKat model is compiled 3 days before the actual KitKat update that was eventually released. My tired eyes did not notice that before.
I don't think there would be any difference, but I need to add that as a disclaimer.
AnonD-313233, 03 Oct 2014What do you mean by 'full update'? This download upgrade is not a kitkat update? Or just firmw... moreFOTA updates are incremental - you must have the previous update installed as this one only adds changes from the previous update.
FULL updates are complete firmware - it doesn't matter what version you have installed, as it gets completely overwritten and all the patches are included in it.
FOTA KitKat is about 480 MB. FULL KitKat is about 800 MB.
Do note that phone's update mechanism will still only allow you to install a NEWER version of the update, even if installing full update. Hence in some cases the users with botched JellyBean need to wait for the full KitKat to be on the site and manually install it.
Installation is as easy as unzipping full firmware file and placing it in the drive of the phone, then tapping on update notification.
If you want to install older or same version, it requires rooting, installing old version, removing rooting, updating to a full version higher than the old one downgraded to in rooting, and then doing OTA update.
This is somewhat complicated.

AnonD-314791, 03 Oct 2014Asus T00j is the same as T00f ?TOOF is A500CG, TOOJ is A501CG.
The difference is in CPU (2.0 vs. 1.6 GHz) and that TOOF is majority coming with Chinese OS, while TOOJ is generally international version.
TOOF exists in 1 and 2 GB RAM versions. TOOJ always has 2 GB RAM.
Both have 8 or 16 GB eMMC.
Other than that the phones are hardware identical.
