Question Good energy saving rom?

I lose 25% standby battery in 8hrs with only gsm on, is this normal? I have a recent stock rom.

Maybe due to the S3 as I heard the S4 and 5 have better energy management.

Any recommendations for a good looking and energy saving rom combination?

Please don't close this tread, this is no "best rom" question, just a recommendation demand

Change your kernel or first look for the culprit by installing better battery stats and keeping it on standby after giving root permissions..
Then see in the partial wake locks what's eating your battery...
I also have stock ROM and I have a full day battery with 4-5 hours screen on time...

Even though your question still violates the forum rules, but I'm going to answer you on this one.

Mostly ROMs won't make any significant differences, the thing that is more important than a ROM is the Kernel, since it controls all of the underlaying hardware. And I won't give you an answer regarding "Which Kernel is the best!" but try to get a decent well known one with some configurations. Like UV, and play with the Governors a bit. From the ROM POV just Greenify your applications.

As long as you are asking for a rom that has good battery or performance or anything. As long as its asking ppl to tell u a rom to use, its considered best rom. In this case, you are asking for the best rom for battery. Will be asking mod to close this sadly. Look thru the android development forum and find the rom tat fits u well. Good luck

Whichever way you word it...

"Best" or "Recommend" ROM/kernel threads are not allowed on XDA.
Please test these things for yourself.
This is the only way you will get an unbiased opinion,and then, you can decide for yourself if it meets YOUR needs.

Don't forget to make a nandroid before you start.
