Dt2w is "cheap" on the G2....why? Low voltage core.
Go read how it is on the N5. 2 to 3 percent battery drain on standby. And if the huge development community of the N5 can't crack the low voltage core to use for apps....I very much doubt the Moto kernels will figure it out. Its probably not possible.
Unless it runs on a low voltage core, it is terrible on the battery. You don't have to take my word for it..... You will see if/when its an option for the X.
Already read the N5 games and sources. The drain here in moto x land won't be so much about cores (imho), it'll be about keeping the touch panel alive to detect touches. Cores are easy. TPs are always another story (they take power).
Hang in brother, -- I've heard this on other devices, we've always solved it. The key is the 'it' that runs on 'a core'. Low voltage core is interesting only to the extent it would solve a particular problem. We won't have that problem because we will remove the cycles of interest by low frequency testing for touch. Still working on it, but it'll work. There's no magic in kernels, just crap-work and testing.
As for sticking the TP up for touches, surely will have work to do.
LOL -- building test #5 now, and it's still borked . Just crap-work, I'll get it working and we'll get it. Never seen something unsolvable with kernels today. Just time to figure it up.
I don't wanna sound rude or anything but it's probably because AOSP rom doesn't have Active Display. Have you considered that? Otherwise i'll stick with stock rom.
But to be honest i always come back to stock. I'm a noobie with all of roms, kernels and scripts. This is my third android phone and obviously this is the most exciting.
