Ok so I'm using cloudy g3 rom and it's great however some users report loads better battery life than me. I never hit 5 hours screen on time. During my work day I mainly just text and check Facebook. So pretty light usage. Hit a max of 4 maybe 4.5 screen on hours.

What app is best to check wakelocks? Tried wakelock detector and gsam all in root mode but the information pretty much just says Android system is keeping the phone awake and kernel or something?

Facebook app and Facebook Messenger lead to ineffective deep sleep of the phone.If you uninstall them and use the mobile web page through the browser battery life will increase significantly.

I've noticed this so removed Facebook messenger. I'd like to keep the Facebook app I've got it to not auto update. Turned off location etc in it too. Not sure what else I can do there?

Here are some screens of GSAM.

Get Greenify. You can add apps that it will hibernate when screen is off. You can also manually hibernate through the app or a widget.

Edit: Also Wakelock Detector is useful. Allows you to Google certain wakelocks and has an option to add it to Greenify. System apps aren't Greenify-able unless you buy the donate version.

You're better off removing the Facebook App and keeping Messenger. Use the website or another app such as 'fast for Facebook'
