  1. recently updated to CM7 on SK17i, works pretty well… ;)

    benchmark CM7 on SK17i “FXP 105″

    - Quadrant: 1981
    - Quadrant OC ~1.2: 2345
    - AnTuTu No SD: 2926
    - AnTuTu SD I/O(Class 6): 3186
    - Neocore: 65.9 FPS

    what i think about this phone?

    + good performance / battery life
    + yes, can play games/emulators, sometimes i play PS1 on it O_o
    + stable @ ~1.2 / 1.6 OC “no freeze” tested with StabilityTest – 2 hours
    + yes possible to run android 4.0 ;) with HW/GPU acceleration it will fly
    + very nice camera quality.
    + Pretty compact
    - some apps will not work. not noticeable on CM7 at (moment)
    - bit chubby, no dramaticly.

    huge update page, nice work.

      • My contract is due renewal right now – given that my 2010 X10 Mini’s battery is pretty poor now I’m considing the Xperia Mini Pro – is CM7 at a point where it is mostly fine and dandy in the Xperia Mini Pro?

      • I don’t have a 2011 device but am considering a Mini Pro (or an Active if I could find it on a contract). CM7 is supposed to run very well also there are lots of custom Gingerbread releases for it, I would consider it to be a good buy!
