A question about Android Compass sensitivity

Accuracy of sensors is not a property of android, but of used
hardware.
Sensors used in HTC Hero sell for about $3 wholesale -  I would not
await
much precision there.   And compass, being magnetic, is sensitive to
ambient magnetic
fields ( resulting from electric installations around you) - so
relative readings may be OK,
but not absolute

2. Android 2.0 battery level

I don't know if this is an Android 2.0 or a Motorola Droid issue, but
I noticed that the battery level only reports in increments of 10's.
For example 70%, 60% etc. Any apps or widgets also can only see this
as well. Is this a bug, what happened to the detailed stats?
