Default [Q] Better battery life with 4.2.2??

i've been reading reports of users with N4's getting upwards of 50% increased battery life with the latest stock 4.2.2 update... found multiple people reporting the same thing on the N7 as well... i wonder what was in that update and i wonder if anyone that was using a 4.2.1 ROM that's now on 4.2.2 can share their experience on any increases or decreases they've noticed...

I'm currently running BB7, which is a 4.2.1 based ROM... was thinking of trying another ROM but obviously want to go to a 4.2.2 ROM with theme chooser to find out... just want some feedback before i make the jump...

Bb8 beta 4.2.2 is on its way. You can find it yourself.

i flashed a test build for BB8 earlier today... charged up and so far with sync on (usually kills my battery) and 4G/gps on as well and i dropped about 5% in just about 1.5hrs... that seems pretty good for me so far... i usually have to turn off sync and all data services to stay at a steady % for a while... hopefully when i turn thos things off, it won't barely drop... oh and that's with like 10mins of screen so far lol... just a few texts and screenshots to upload some images for my new theme!

This was on the first discharge cycle after flashing the new 4.2.2 Greenblue AOSP. I think it is going to get even better!

That's insane... o_o do you have only the screen turned out and didn't do anything? No way in hell someone can get 7 hours of on screen time in 1 charge and still have 26%, unless the phone was charged inbetween, just not completely.
