Pretty sure this is why the G4 gets, "Average" battery life. I could be wrong but the kernel seems to be needing some serious tweaking...

Agreed! This isn't to say the Nexus 6 is a bad phone. It's not. It's an excellent phone but with Google's current policy change to reflect carrier software affecting future firmware updates and the fact that there's such stiff competition at the current price bracket, it's nice to see that there are other people out there like me that aren't filled with brand loyalty and can see a phone for the sum of its parts and not what it represents.
 
OK, banish me if you must - but I have to admit it. The Nexus 6 is a heck of a great phone but I stuck it back in its box after 2 weeks.

Tried out the Nexus 6 for a couple weeks, went back to the OnePlus one that I absolutely love. First time I've ever gone back to a phone after trying something newer.

Missed the great battery life, the doube-tap to wake and sleep the phone, the great CM tweaks that make it so great to work with, and holding a phone I didn't feel scared of dropping all day long.

Three years ago, they said the Note was “toast.” Here’s what they’re saying now. http://youtu.be/oxhSnNZH3Rk

I read a story somewhere that said that Steve Jobs didn't' really understand why his first iphone was so popular.  Yes the touch screen interface was revolutionary but it was also the biggest screen real estate on a phone to that point in time.  

Yet Jobs insisted that people didn't want bigger phones, but that's exactly where the market went.  Ironically Steve Jobs first iphone was the leader in the screen size wars.  The iphone just failed to keep pace till now. I just wonder if Apple is too late to realize that this is one thing that people have always wanted... - a bigger screen!

Why can't more developers see that if you treat people good they'll treat you good back? I wish all developers would learn from +Francisco Franco​​. The developer space would be a much happier place for everyone in my humble opinion.
 
The transition to the soon-to-be new franco.Kernel updater update

Since the new guidelines and Android version were pushed we've been seeing a lot of great discussions between users and developers about what's the best approach from a business point of view (yes, developers also have to eat) when working on a major update/complete re-write on apps that have been released more than at least 12-months ago. News flash, there is NO best approach. I think the developer needs to think about all the pros-cons, know its users and figure out the best plan of action.

Now it's my turn to talk about franco.Kernel updater, which is my main app that I've been focusing for a long time since I believe my goal it's to provide the users the best user experience possible to help with the mundane and not-so-straightforward task of managing our device's performance/battery/other features with a custom Kernel.
Writing an app from scratch ain't easy. If you think it is, you can stop reading now and leave. Writing an app from scratch 3 years since I first introduced it it's tough - as a business standpoint it's not good. I ain't going to get money from older users, some of them that bought the app when it was just 1,29 euros the first time I released it and there were no other apps of its kind for me to compare.
I've been working on this since July, around the time I was coming back from the US, I actually pulled a 11-hour straight flight coding and reading the new Material guidelines, I kid you not. It's December, I'm really damn close to finish the re-write and it left me wondering, I worked a lot on a 3 year old app for nearly 5 months, how am I going to monetise this and actually keep living out of Android development? It's simple: think first about the user, and the rest will follow

With this motto in mind I absolutely cannot and won't EVER ask my users to pay again for the same app (even though it's a new app from scratch). I'll be releasing it normally as a normal update and old users will have all these new perks and design for free, and new users will be delighted with the user experience that I'm providing.
For this reason and because I started this Android adventure with donations from random people I never met or will ever met, I decided that I'll add a section on FKU with in-app payments where users can simply donate something to me whenever they want, if they want. Old users, if they think I deserve it can simply pay for the current app price as an in-app payment which serves as a donation, or they can simply use the app normally without any restriction even if they don't donate anything.

I think this is the best approach for the users and ultimately for me as well if they think I deserve something extra for my hard work without any obligation, features being blocked or releasing a completely new app.

I thought I'd post this in light of recent discussions on the Android world. I hope you'll feel happy about this decision, I'm doing it for you.

Agreed!
 
It just cracks me up seeing people gush in articles about how wonderful it is to use the iPhone 6 Plus because of its larger screen, and then recommend other people try it, as if that -- using a larger-screened mobile device -- is something incredibly novel that no one has ever experienced before. First, obviously, there are LOTS of phones with bigger screens; that you decided to relegate yourself to one company's 2007 sensibilities out of some weird devotion to antiquated design choices is not a reason to expect everyone else has. Second, even if you lived your whole life in Apple's thought-bubble, there are still iPads and iPad Minis that provide bigger-screen experiences. So, really, I have to wonder, why do these people feel a need to proclaim to the world this "new" (to them) revelation? And why is it that they're often "tech journalists?"
