I really don't know why cyanogenmod consume battery but the stock dont do that much
Maybe it's related to activating the powersaver mode , so what is powersafer mode ?
And is there any ROOTED method to maintain battery on cyanogenmod ?

And I saw on google there is a way of installing root module to make multi window for non TouchWiz phones ? Is that really working ?

And the sensors of the mobile like smart stay is off on CM s3
Or maybe s4 and note 2. 3 s pens when installing cyanogenmod would they lose function too ?

There are many comparisons already.

Now let me say. I think you know about AOSP and smoothness? Battery drains a little faster,that's true. That's becase Stock firmwares are smooth,maybe,but responsiveness is slow. I mean compared to AOSP,it's slow,that means less CPU power used,thus less battery drain. It's possible to configure AOSP to work like Stock,I mean make it as slow as Stock fw,so battery will be better.

I'm on AOSP now,too. On Stock firmware my battery usage from 100 to 20% was 4 and sometimes more hrs of screen time. On AOSP I get mostly 3.30-3.50,that's because I use custom kernel and tweaks which give more performance. I just couldn't stand that slowness and lags in some social apps on Stock firmwares (it was smooth in settings,but not in apps). AOSP is smooth everywhere and I prefer that and already got used to battery.

As for features,some are lost,some are gained.

Hmm totally agree with you , but it's not the social apps only on stock they are all apps are bugged and restarting crashing .. unbearable !!
But you know , if I didnt use powersaver mode the battery drains so quickly tho :/ on stock I mean
So what are the customizations I have to do on AOSP to give me more battery life ?
