    Do you have any other connectivity turned on during these rides? I've used my 928 in the back country as a GPS in airplane mode for 6-8 hours and will still have about 30-35% left after that time. I'm wondering if the 928 is trying to find cell or WiFi coverage?

    If you are in airplane mode and this is the power consumption, that's pretty excessive.
    I always turn off wifi. I think it may have to do with either the auto brightness or some other variable, because sometimes it barely dips 5% after a 20-30 minute ride.

    Anyone planning on putting this week's build on their 928? Kinda interested in the interactive live tiles. Can't recall if that is going to be available for this release or not. I've got the previous build on a test device and it seems to be working well enough.

    ​Anyone?
    Installing now...

    Anyone know if TP adds FM Tuner support? I've been on the fence about upgrading but I wouldn't mind the bugs if I can use this feature.

    I installed the latest Fast Ring build on a test 928. Radio doesn't work. I thought the 928 didn't have FM radio hardware?
    ​Is there a particular app you want to test with?

    The story (rumor?) I've heard is that the chipset supports FM, but requires an additional connection to the headphone jack (to use connected headphones as an FM antenna) that is not soldered on the 928. I don't have a source for that handy, though.

    I've heard a similar story. I heard that it was there, but disabled thanks to Verizon. Let me see if I can find some cable based headphones.

    Not necessarily, it was just one of the selling points that caught my interest when looking into the phone. Upon further research it looks like the capability is there but for some reason the service provider decided not to enable it in the manufacturing process. Supposedly it has the chip for FM tuning but it's effectively disconnected from the circuitry of the phone. It's not that important, I suppose.

    If it were enabled it'd actually be a built-in feature like GPS or wifi and not from any app in particular.

    After upgrading to the new build, do a hard reset. That should fix phone not working issue. The TP's still haven't been very stable in my experience, with a lot of apps not opening and stuff.
