Default [Q] Do you have terrible battery life: AT&T One converted to GPE 4.4

Has anyone else with an AT&T One converted to GPE 4.4 been experiencning horrifying battery life? I am running an entirely stock GPE conversion, including recovery, kernel, etc, latest firmware, radio, etc. On a fresh install (NO Google settings changed from defaults), off Wi-Fi and with consistent good LTE signal, my phone will drain from 100% to 75% in about 2 hours. That is with no apps installed and a screen-on time of only 45 minutes, texting and web browsing. Such battery drain is very consistent.

With all of my usual apps installed, some of which include GroupMe, Facebook, Maps, and a couple others, battery life doesn't change for better or worse.

And this has always been the case for me with any sort of GPE conversion. Well, with any ROM for that matter. I had the same astronomically bad battery life when I OTA'd from stock to AT&T 4.3. In fact, the ONLY time my phone has what I would consider good battery life is when running stock AT&T 4.1.2. I can reach up to 3.5 hours of screen-on time over the course of a day and a half that way.

Anyone else? Lots of threads and complaints about this, but I'm wondering if having an AT&T phone converted to an "international"/"Google Play Edition"/"Developer Edition" is to blame some how? Radio perhaps?

You have to give the phone time to adjust to the new software. Give it a few charge cycles.

I cannot remember how the battery life was for me on sense 4.1.2 because i installed a GPE 4.3 ROM and the batterly life was terrible on that. I ran battery calibration multiple times because my charge would go from 14% to 1%; powering off in less than a minute. Now i did do the conversion to GPE the other day and like you i am running the stock kernel, recovery, radio, firmware etc etc and the battery life compared to the ROM is amazing. I also enabled ART immediately so i cannot compare it to dalvik, but you may want to try that out.

Would you mind telling me what firmware you are running? The latest GPE 4.4? I used ART for a few days and don't recall a difference, but I'm currently going back to it to see if things improve.
