How are y'all doing it? 6 hours? That's not that good to me. And some dude said he got 6 hours of on-screen time. I'm rooted with experimental kernel

battery life isnt really about what kernel you use. battery life is all about how you use your phone, how you set it up, what apps you use, and most importantly, the quality of your phone/data connection. sure, a kernel might be able to help you get slightly better battery. but its really your use and your signal. and if your signal is bad quality, then your battery will always suffer.

"Good battery life" does not apply to "everybody" that has rooted. Many root and simply expect that battery life must be improved, but still need to understand the basic laws of physics first.

(People's definition of "Good" in this scenario also varies massively...)

It comes down to how you use the device. There is no 'best settings' you should be looking for. Save yourself the time, and first understand what is using your battery.

SOT is a measurement, but a crude one. It offers no insight into what those 6 hours were doing...You can be certain that it wasn't 6 hours gaming at 100% brightness though. Under relatively light CPU load, low brightness, good signal etc...the laws of physics will explain higher SOT...

this past week some people were having problems with the battery life on CM11 ROM, but it seems it's been fixed on the nightly version, try downloading greenify so you can put those annoying battery eating apps to sleep

What does root access have to do with battery life?
