Hello,

My XT890 is with stock 4.1.2, 3.0.34 kernel. I have been using it since past 3 months and have never achieved a good battery life. Like, on standby mode after a full charge it survives for 10hours and goes to 10%. If I use it for watching youtube or some songs, it drains within 3 hours. I think, this is because of the stock ROM.

Is there any better ROM that provides a good battery life atleast surving for a day with moderate usage like 30mins of phone calls, full day 3Gnetwork on with 30mins of browser usage and will survive for like 48hours on standby.

I am handing over this phone to my Mom who would barely charge it daily. So, I expect some good standby time.
Is there any ROM/Mod that may help me to achieve these stats?

Thanks.

Sure. Well at least one and a half day is definitely possible. More battery life when you don't use it that much.

I suggest you the One Rom and also the Razr I cleaner and Greenify for hibernating APPs that should not be in standby.

I use the 4.1.2 en.GB Stock ROM and disabled a LOT of unused standard apps.
I am always online with WLAN/3G and Skype, Whatsapp, Email, and have a realy good discharge-rate of 0.8% per hour!!!
I recharge my phone after 3-5 Days.

i can later attach some Screenshots of my disabled standard apps.

I'm averaging 2+ days with moderate usage, emails, data always on (hspda+) brightness on auto, whatsapp, facebook, xda, chrome etc throughout the day and evening.

Standard euro 4.1.2 in strong mobile reception areas so its not constantly switching 2g, 3g or hspda
