OxygenOS vs. CyanogenMod 11S: Testing out battery life


We’re really close to getting our hands-on CyanogenMod 12S for the OnePlus One. But until that day comes, all of the attention is squarely on OxygenOS, OnePlus’s homemade ROM based on Android 5.0.2. So far, the new software is holding up like a champ, performing well and generally handling everyday tasks with aplomb. While that’s all well and good, how does it actually compare to the older CyanogenMod 11S in terms of battery?


We ran a tests to find out.


Keep in mind that this is by no means a comprehensive battery review. We’re still going through some tests and figuring out how OxygenOS will hold up over the long run. What this test does, however, is provide a base, giving us an idea of how each respective software handles a specific task. Just because Oxygen keeps a charge longer when playing video doesn’t mean it won’t run out doing simple tasks like messaging and browsing the Web.


What we did is simple: We ran the same two tests on each phone, varying the control just slightly each time. For the first test, we turned the brightness on each phone all the way up, closed all applications (except for YouTube), and then ran a lengthy HD video with the volume on mute. Cellular data was turned off on the CyanogenMod; there was no cellular connection with our Oxygen model.

In the first test, we went for about 3 hours and 47 minutes, and after all was said and done, Oxygen had about 30-percent battery life, while Cyanogen 11S had about 5-percent. A pretty drastic difference. In the second test, we put both in airplane mode, turned the brightness all the way up, muted the volume, and closed all the applications except for YouTube. This test ran for about 4 hours and 18 minutes, and resulted in Oxygen having 25-percent battery, and Cyanogen having 14-percent.


We suspect that the main factor here is how optimized Lollipop is compared to Android 4.4.4, which CyanogenMod 11S is based off of. At least in terms of battery, OnePlus’s Oxygen appears to provide an upgraded experience; whether you think it provides an improved experience overall is up to you.


CyanogenMod 12S, which is based off Lollipop, has been certified, which means OnePlus One owners have that to look forward to in the future. That said, we’ll see how CM12S and Oxygen fare against each other once the update comes through. For now, check out the results we found in the video above.

Gears of War remaster screenshots from footage leak

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo The only thing Black Tusk and Microsoft have left to do on the Gears of War remaster is actually announce it. We’ve seen it hinted at, denied, and rated.Now we have some footage accidentally leaked onto the Xbox DVR site, likely by a developer who forgot to disable the automatic upload.This isn’t gameplay footage per se – the enemy is standing still in the clips while the player attacks them. It’s likely test footage for some of the gore physics or something like that. But it’s definitely footage taken in-game.The two images above were pulled from a NeoGAF thread on the leak comparing the screenshot of the new clips to one from the original Gears. Microsoft is likely scrambling to take the footage down, but currently the thread, linked to in the source for this story, has links to the videos.If you decide to click through and watch the clips, it’s important to note that they were filmed using the Xbox Game DVR and were filmed three months ago, before t…

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry, e incluso un fanboy BlackBerry, sólo porque resulta que tengo probado, y lo disfrutamos, el Z30-libre del teclado. Sin embargo, a pesar de mi predilección por ambos teclados y el RIM avances (er, BlackBerry) ha realizado recientemente, el Nexus One de Google 5 sigue siendo mi smartphone defecto de elección.
Pero eso cambió hace dos semanas - al menos temporalmente - cuando Jon Rettinger me retó a tratar de vivir con el dispositivo insignia de BlackBerry, el Pasaporte. Y ya que estoy por lo general para cualquier reto tecnológico que decidí darle un paso - y así que me puse el Nexus a un lado y se zambulló en la parte más profunda.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launch trailer take 2 – Go Your Own Way

You can call it another lonely day. Haven’t we been here once before? CD Projekt RED believes that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is far too amazing for just one launch trailer, so it has decided to create yet another just to drive home the fact that you need to play this game.The new “Go Your Way” launch trailer features more in-engine graphics instead of impressive pre-rendered CG, and its focus this time around is not our big, bad hero Geralt but rather the Princess Ciri. Don’t be fooled by her puppy dog eyes and adorable freckles. This girl will kill you in a flash! The trailer tells her tale of how she wandered from home, and tells of how Geralt sets out to find her.The relationship between these two is not the only star of the trailer either. Geralt’s fantasy world is full of real life horrors that extend beyond mere monsters. Slaughter, torture, executions, dangerous seductions. The trailer bares all that you will find in this horrible yet beautiful place, giving you a taste of the s…
