A very good ROM with great battery life! It has very cool boot animation which I absolutely loved it. Very smooth and zero lags. It didn’t appear anything extra ordinary at first look. However, the performance was really good and the interface was very responsive.
I was running on 0606 build. I ran Temasek for 10 days and it never gave me any big trouble. Although, couple times I found my phone to soft reboot by itself, that was really weird because it happened just 2 times in 10 days. Also, one day I had trouble waking up my device, few times in a single day. The screen won’t turn on neither by pushing power button nor double tapping the screen. Ehh, that pissed me off a little but it never happened again. Nevertheless, other than above mentioned bugs I didn’t find any issues.
Temasek has fair amount of customization options under Settings/Temasek spare parts (I liked how they described it as spare parts). Under spare parts you have following options to play with:
- App circle bar
- Clock Widget (I don’t know why they would put it here, but it’s there)
- Gesture Anywhere
- Heads up notifications
- Recents panel
- Screen and animations
They tried to modify and put Slim recents app panel as an option as your recent panel, but I wasn’t very fond of it because it doesn’t have ‘clear all’ button to close all the recent apps at once (check out the screenshot below). Maybe if they put clear all button in Slim recents app panel, it would be more functional. The other thing that didn’t work for me on 0606 build is under Buttons/Nav bar dimensions it didn’t change the navigation bar width even after changing its value, however it changed its height on changing the value. I hope they have already fixed in their latest build.
I got around 6 hours of SOT every day, which is the best for my device by far on Temasek ROM. Mind you this is without any battery saving apps or any usage of Greenify.
Temasek is very good ROM overall with an average amount of customization options. Performance is flawless and battery life is great! If you don’t like things getting too complicated in a ROM and still gives you a fair amount of customization options, Temasek ROM is for you.
