OK, that sounds promising on that point..

With QtEI I am currently recharging every other day (except when it 
occasionally fails to autosuspend, which a reboot fixes) so remembering to 
charge during the day would be a pain (and not always possible). :-(

Talking to a friend of mine at work who has an Android dev phone from the US 
he reckons he's got better battery life out of it since running cupcake, but I 
don't know if the same will apply with it on a FR.

I never use it that way, so not an issue for me. :-)

Perhaps it's because I'm in Australia but I've never experienced the buzz 
problem (yet), so maybe I'm just lucky..
