Also isn't DVFS implemented to prevent overheating of the device under stress? Could you explain why it would increase battery life if your CPU cores were fully "unleashed" without temperature throttling?

cheers
On my previous device (Note 3) disabling dvfs through wanam xposed didn't worked (some other users tested with the same result) . Temp throttle still works with dvfs off and as for battery life with dvfs on when all 4 cores get stuck online I get less with 1h and 30m on screen compared to dvfs off and also there is much more heat running with all 4 cores online so I used Note 3 with dvfs off from February till this month when I bought gs5 and had 0 issues with heat. I would also love if someone could start a petition for Samsung to disable dvfs because it causes more problems than it helps.

I couldn't find any specifics when I googled it, sorry, but what is DVFS intended to do? It dynamically sets the voltage depending on CPU speed to save battery or something? :S
Previous devices:

HTC Incredible S S710e (Eventually stopped turning on)

Nexus 7 2012 (Half the screen stopped responding to touch after leaving it for 2 months, also has weird marks on bezel, no idea from where)

Sony Xperia Z C6603 (Passed it down to family member, I actually hated this device)

Current devices:

Samsung Galaxy S5 SM-G900I

I quote: "After that DVFS is completely disabled! Kernel can handle totally the power of cpu so the up/down scaling! Cpu and Gpu freq are not blocked anymore! The cpu and gpu are used based on tasks and not limited by crap samsung behaviour".

I remember on the galaxy S2 this was simply an app that could be disabled using most root tools! Fortunately I still get anywhere from 5-7 hours screen-on time on the S5 (brightness dependant) whether this bug is present or not. Does the cpu frequency still respond according to the governor? I noticed the S5 regularly increases the minimum cpu speed to about 1.1 Ghz (not 300 mhz). Does this behaviour remain with the mod? I'm just curious because with the great battery I'm happy to meed anything that improves smoothness.
