Semaphore kernel is most overhead-free and low memoryprint kernel for ICS.
Because it has everything as modules. If you don't enable them from Semaphore Manager , they won't increase memory footprint. Even deep idle statistics.
Max OC step is 1000mhz but you can live overclock it to 1300mhz.
It has bm and normal version.
Overclock is a keyword for this kernel. It has too much steps for overclocking.
Best part is; when I overclock my phone 1580mhz with glitch kernel, my phone is still cold like 1000mhz.
MNICS kernel has 386mb RAM with 720p recording.
Midnight Kernel (Mnics):
Very daily kernel for average use. You can set up too much things with it's own manager.
Unlike other kernels, midnight kernel supports regular OC but not live OC.
No bm version.
A kernel with lots of features and pretty nice for advenced users. You can set governor settings on NSTOOLS. It has 1400mhz step and live oc. This making it highly overclockable. It has selective oc to prevent live oc on low frequencies.
It has cm color and voodoo color - bm and normal version.
Which is faster?
Which has more battery life?
Which is best?
All are best depends on your needs.
Which kernel you are using?
Devil kernel for OC to 1600mhz.
I have bunch of android devices because of my family. Lots of kernels on too much devices.
We are so lucky. All of them are one of best kernels on XDA.
