Battery life is all up to the user, might I add. If you have 37 crappy apps set to sync/push constantly, with brightness all the way up, you never reboot, you leave GPS on, BT on, etc - your battery is going to suck whatever ROM you run.

I also don't under volt ever. Never saw any benefit or need.

I'm not saying that stock is better than any Rom. Or vice versa. as it pertains to battery life. Scott's Rom is basically stock. I love my phone when it was stock had great battery life and performance. What Scott offers me is better functionally.
I love the multi window app that's included. Before i had to change the script. The same goes for the camera shutter. And the annoying Wi-Fi notification. And I really dislike bloatware.
But it's all based on personal preference. They both run great. I didn't want to start a debate.

What about benchmarks, like antutu. Isnt that a way of comparing performance between the verious roms?

Are you telling me that doesnt mean anything?

Im telling you benchmarks don't mean a thing in real world performance and again, the rom doesn't so squat, unless they do an sqlite hack. That only inflates and puts your data at risk.

Kernels change performance, zip roms do not!
If you like what I do, buy me a brew!

No it does not mean anything, it can easily be manipulated. I remember when I had my Droid X, there was a script that would TRIPLE the benchmark scores. The script however had ZERO effect on performance.

I know they can be manipulated.

However, let's assume for a second that it's not being manipulated.

Aren't they still the best way to measure performance from one ROM to another?
Aren't the benchmarks the only real way to counter the "placebo" effect argument?

Will someone that is on stock please let me know what their Antutu score is.

Thanks,
Matt

You use the same amount of battery whether your ram is full or empty. Empty is useless, and full is fine as long as the memory management works, and it does. You would only get redraw if those processes weren't backgrounded, and if they weren't, let me tell you, there would be tremendous battery drain. We would see screenshots of bloat taking up battery usage too.
I mostly agree, I know that background apps don't effect performance (unless there's not enough free ram which I had a problem with on my Droid X and Thunderbolt) or battery life if they aren't running. The problem is some of these bloat apps do run even though we never use them (blockbuster use to eat up a lot of battery on my Droid X even though I didn't use it) or the memory management didn't work well and bloat apps take up memory while the apps I used every day fought for the rest of the ram. Also on the Droid X and Thunderbolt I had performance issues due to not having enough ram, I had to use an app to set the memory parameters so it wouldn't drop to low and cause lag and freezing.

This is exactly why I run his Rom. Nothing to do with performance or battery, simply like the features. You forgot to mention the ability to change the pull down icons

Scott's my dude, but honestly bro: are you talking about which toggles display? If yes, welcome to lidroid and every custom ROM. Unless, you mean the actual icon. That would be different.
