Let's be honest, I'm one of the not so frequent xda user, I always read several articles but have been, so far clueless.
I have the international model running on CM10 and constantly switch between ROMs of stock and CM, I've always liked AOSP ROMs, love the simple and uncluttered interface as opposed to the ever so bloated touchwiz. What else can I say? It has 32GB SD card and 16GB onboard storage, and it has a little trouble with 3rd party chargers (lose connection / disconnects every so often ) Its an old phone in technology time, but its still great.
So, I've tested wirh CM, stock and 2 other kernels which still make me feel like the phone is gobbling up a power plant everyday. One main culprit is Cell Standby which is very odd since it's usually just in my room (I use an other phone otg) and has a pretty decent signal (3-4bars)
On the most recent checks:
Cell Standby - 25%
Android OS- 18%
Screen - 15%
Google Services - 10%
Phone idle - 10%
Android System - 6%
And the rest are some of my apps..
I just recently started using Deep Sleep Battery Saver and wakelock detector. I'll send the info when the results are in for a day.
I'm not that fond of using 3G since data rates in my country are time-based and the KB-based pricing is off the charts. So I only use my phone for call and text and the occasional casual gaming and browsing (usually the cnet app)
I can only say that, if we could help on this either way, there are a ton of xda threads related to fast battery drain with varying issues because of Androids openness, I can only think if there would be some sort of centralized thread for this, or if you guys could help. That would be pretty awesome.
Ask any question or request anything so I could get this phone going. Thanks
