Hiya It_ler !

Glad you finally opened a thread mate, will be easier to follow your tests

Thumbs up for this guy who spend most of his time benchmarking battery life with kernels and playing with his own battery lifetime to shares us always everyday better useful stats !

'Cheers!

Cool
Great info and detailed test results!! THX!!

Out of curiosity, forgetting all the numbers, which kernel is your favorite?? Which one felt the smoothest to you?



(the reason I ask is because I just upgraded from SGS1 to SGS2 today and have to start all over again choosing roms, mods, kernels, etc, and would also like to hear your overall impressions of these different kernels)

I have got no real or absolute favourite kernel.
As IMO battery life is more important, I prefer Phenomenal Extreme, which is extremely undervolted by default but stable on my phone.
For smoothness ... try latest SpeedMod kernel.
N.E.A.K. and SiyahKernel are also very good and smooth, but you can tweak a lot of system/kernel settings to optimize the kernel to your needs ... so that is something I would not recommend for "beginners".

It is your phone, bootloader is unlocked, so feel fre to flash and test any kernel which is compatible with your ROM.
You are welcome post your results/experiences here.

Thx for that. I will start with SpeedMod, and if the battery life isn't good enough, I'll try Phenomenal Extreme.

SocialHub is in my recommanded apk removing list (in my battery saving tips collection), it's sucking battery juice like hell same about Seven engine

Btw, I tried latest XXLPW CF-Root kernel but didn't found it very battery frendly in deep sleep, won't recommand it to ure future kernel-to-test list at all

Yeah, saw your tips already and have applied many of them. (See the link in the first post!)
With removing of some system apks I am very careful, as I am using GTalk, stock EMail and Google Reader app.
So I still need some of these social hub / seven apks.
But I am always confident to test new settings ;)

Have updated my "kernels-to-test" list in post #2.
Always happy to hear about other user's experiences.

Thanks for this great work

Any chance you add tests for LPW and the new LPG?

I am interested with battery tests mainly. LPF is not that great with me, stock kernel

XXLPW is not on my current kernels-to-test list, but maybe XWLPG could be a candidate.
Want to finish my current tests first, then I decide which kernel/ROM to test next.

Thank you for the answer
LPG will be good to compare with LPF, in fact, I tested LPW and will not be back to it. Only battery under LPF a bit worst...

Will be waiting for your updates
