Just moved from the tmo galaxy s3 to this nexus 5. There are so many ROMs and kernels its ridiculous! I'm running Dirty Unicorn now but the battery seems to be draining kind of fast. What kernel is best for battery life?

A kernel makes very little difference. It's how you setup and use your phone which determines battery life

Hi,

It's the advantage: the choice.

You will need to test by yourself to see what kernel suits your needs.

Keep in mind that it's mainly your use, settings apps and signal quality that make the battery life... And it depends what you mean by "battery draining fast", without detailed battery stats it's subjective. Check also this thread: Nexus 5 Battery Results.

There is already a thread about the kernels: Kernel discussions.

And: NO Best ROM/Kernel threads.

battery life has everything to do with your personal use, your personal setup, your apps installed, and very much the quality of your phone/data connection. everything else affects battery minimally.
