Ultimate kernel for Nexus 6P

I've tried all the main stream kernels. ElementalX. Franco, Kylo & God's, Some kernels have good battery life at the cost of stuttering performance and others are mostly vice versa. All i expect from a custom kernel is fluid performance and decent battery life (around 5 hours sot).

Kylo is best suited for me as i'm always on LTE. Though it's slightly overclocked it still manages to deliver great battery life. There were multiple days where i find 70% of battery left after 11 hours of usage. My daily usage consists of around 2 hours of calls, multiple email accounts always on sync, 1.5 hours of browsing and little of whatsapp, telegram & youtube.

Kylo combined with ElementalX kernel app will help you tune further more. Minor changes such as selecting governors for cpu clusters will add extra couple of hours of battery life.

Consistency, Interactions of the developer is awesome. Expect 3-4 kernel updates per week. Slightly overkill in my opinion. :P

All said and done this guy deserves to work with google.

Test day 3 | Ubermallow + franco kernel

Lost 70% in 8 hours 40 mins.

XBONE | Project Cars

Amazing game not worth buying it.

I've been an racing gamer since young. It began with NFS like most people. I was particularly interested in F1 games and switched to F1 99 from EA, for a long time I was stuck playing rFactor and almost all versions of codemaster's F1 games.

Since I knew a thing or 2 about simulation games and setting up the cars. I bought Project Cars for Xbox one few months back. The experience has been both good and bad.

Let's begin with the positives.

Graphics are good.
Good collection of new and old cars / tracks.
Game UI is decent.
Weather, Tyre & Fuel simulations feels almost real.

and the negatives.

Online gamers.. actually the lack of it itself is the biggest complain I have.
Updates are a nightmare. They fuckup controller settings and sometimes car setups.
Car setups are not consistent. They work opposite than they are supposed to.
No custom setups for Time trail.
Too many bugs.
Game crashes often.
Game support.. wtf is that ?
I'm sure PC gamers use hacks to set some crazy lap times which are not filtered out.

I don't regret buying this game. But I would prefer F1 2015 over Project cars any day.
