Re: Android Jellybean 4.2 specs

I read a few permissions some of the apps were asking for, and it's kinda "WTH. is going on"

A lot of apps require far too liberal permissions for my tastes. Like, why do you need this? Check out Angry Birds, you'll crap a brick!

a good permissions blocking app is good for this.

It is, but I would have to root to use it. I just couldn't be bothered, as I don't use custom ROM's at all. So far.

Root, and using custom ROMs are different things. You don't need to use a custom ROM to have root. And you don't need to root to install a custom ROM.

There are many great apps that can be used once you have root. A permissions blocker is one.

None of those additions are very interesting. What did they do about storage, ease of configuration and battery life?

Battery Life?

Many solutions to that. Many phones can be used with an extended battery(I have an extended battery with my Motorola Bionic and my phone does last the entire day) or get a phone such as the Driod Razor Maxx HD with its 3,300mAh battery was good for 18 hours and 51 minutes of talk time

That's it? What the heck is running in the background?

My NS goes for 2 and a half days on the stock 1500mAh battery. Wow!
