Re: Got me an upgrade..lol
I would advise staying with OS 5 on the 9700. OS 6 will take away from resources without much benefit, in my opinion. Also, if you are used to keyboard shortcuts and so forth, you will miss a great deal going to 6.
No opinion on hybrids. My advice is try the official OS releases and see if you can tell any differences and go with what works best. Delete the apps you don't need, and only install what you really need. With that you should be more than happy.
On the battery, it is better not to run the battery down. Don't do it if you don't have to. Charge when you can, like when you are sleeping.
