Re: [GUIDE] *27/1 UPDATE* 4.2.1 RESULTS! N7 'Best' Kernel? (Performance & Battery Tes

I really should give the stock kernel a go and see how that manages.
Other things can have a negative impact on battery life, I do have tons of apps, but I always manage which ones are running. Also clean installing a ROM is always safer and will probably give you some better battery life due to everything being clean. Many apps do have instances of running in background so it is helpful to check every now and than.
Also disabling GPS will give you some extra time per charge. I always disable it. And I keep WiFi location enabled.
