Thanks, I have read quite a bit about the different governors and your post has inspired me to do even more tests!
I found this wonderful app here https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...dW92ZXJsYXkiXQ
It's called cool tools. it's great for monitoring which governor is using the highest frequency in real time.
I based my little remedial tests with airplane mode on. I run a very system tasking live wallpaper and lightning launcher. i would test idling frequencies and left/right, up/down, and diagonal scrolling.
from my testing I have decided on smartassV2 for running low frequencies on simple tasks. Lazy was good cause it would run the home screen on 200mhz when idle, but it would usually jump up to the 1000mhz step(1.392ghz for my settings) which was unnecessary for that action. Smartassv2 showed itself to run around 400mhz on an idle homescreen without any unnecessary frequency spikes when scrolling, on my settings while scrolling it stayed usually below 982mhz(or something like that).
if you're curious i am using https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...klivewallpaper
for my live wall paper. the red dragon wall paper is stunning. it's not free though, worth the purchase though.
This is an excellent tool, it provides lots of great heads up info when you are curious.
you've inspired me to search for other governors, They Drew First Blood thanks for the links!
