My battery life is pretty bad. I have push email on all day and even if I don't use the phone much, less than an hour with the screen on, it's at 30% at the end of the day. I really do like the rom though. I'm going to give it a bit longer to settle in before I decide to keep it or move on. This is day 4 with it.

I'm contemplating switching to sky ics because of the large number of features( bravia etc).
Can anyone comment on the battery life of that rom compared to super lite? I'm looking for answers from those who have extensively used both roms.
Thx in advance

You get 24 hours and complaint about it? I would be happy to get that much on any ROM.

I am running SkyICS 4.2a-8 and I am sitting at 33hrs with 38% battery life left.

Battery fully charged and then CWM wipe battery stats.
Fully drained battery and then full charged again.
These are the results.

Screen - 33%

WiFi on, Bluetooth on

I haven't tried superlite yet, but it's on my list. I have had such great luck with SkyICS I am having a hard time switching.

At no point in my post did I complain about anything lol.

For those who asked about my setup. I am on superlite 5.0. I NEVER use wifi since I'm on unlimited. I use the 2x battery app. I have frozen or removed all apps I don't use often. I keep my brightness set to the lowest setting 99% of the time. I only use Bluetooth when in the car about 30 mins per day.

I would like to hear some more opinions in the bravia engine. Does anyone really notice a difference or is it just placebo like the guy a few posts back said??
