Battery Full [Q] How is your battery life on 4.4?

Hey all, just a quick question here, how is kitkat treating your battery life. Has it gone up, down or pretty much stayed the same?

Mine's pretty good. I use greenify, in conjunction with DS Battery Saver which seems to work on 4.4 now. DS puts the device into deep sleep mode whenever the screen is off, so I ony lose a few percent overnight instead of 10-15 like I would normally.

Most of the views are from search engine indexing. Probably like 100+ of them. You will see it if you run/own a forum.

Battery life in 4.4 is the same if not any different from 4.3. However, the only real accurate comparison that can be done is with CM10.x vs CM11 since many if not all of the roms in the section are completely based off CM11 code (the exception is PA/Omni but they are nowhere near test build phase)
Code:
Mako E960 4.4.2 KOT49H - OmniROM Official - Maguro SC-04D 4.3 JLS36G - OmniROM Unofficial - Maguro i9250M 4.4.2 KOT49H - OmniROM Homemade - Razor 4.4.2 KOT49H - OmniROM Official - Grouper 4.4.2 KOT49H - OmniROM Official

Yes with the stock battery but I'm using Fancy kernel r43 BigMem, also I don't really heavily use my phone, mostly web browsing, using the bbc app in the mornings and whatsapp messenger/sms

For me it has not changed. I'm on stock battery with CM11 unofficial ROM. I get around 2h of screen time but in the background I have allways on WiFi, 3G, Google sync and location reporting.
